I know the first question you may be asking yourself is: why would I want a steel-framed deck? And the answer to this as is simple as it is complex; because it’s better! Our ancient ancestors came to the realization that steel did a much better job of protecting them and provided the foundation for stronger structures because it was not an organic substance (such as wood). You could change the recipe, so to speak, if you wanted something harder, softer, pliable, etc…where by comparison, you get what you get with trees. That is not to say that pressure-treated lumber cannot provide the foundation for a solid deck. It can, and does, in the majority of structures adjourning our yards today. But as with anything organic, there is maintenance, aging and blemishes that appear over time. Wood can also split, warp, and shift over time…leading to an uneven decking surface, as well as structural weak points. In an effort to combat these and other issues, the good people at Trex set out to develop a system of deck framing that was stronger, more durable, non-organic and maintenance free. The result? Trex Elevations steel framing was born!

We’re all familiar with things like hidden costs and fine print (often too familiar), aren’t we? You know, like when you “win” something on a game show or a lottery, only to find out that your definition of winning and the contest holder’s vary ever so slightly. You’re thinking you just got a new car or vacation, and they’re thinking: we might have hooked another sucker! Salesmen utilize this technique as well from time to time, telling you all the things you need to know about their product or service, while keeping from you any potential negatives. But the good salesmen, the ones offering you quality, high-end stuff, have no need for this charade. Transparency is key for them, honesty and integrity the tools of their trade. They lay it all out for the world to see, keeping expectations realistic while forming authentic relationships. And in the case of these white knights from the business community, fine print can actually be a good thing! How you might ask? Well take The Deck Store, for example. Everybody knows they are the place to go for all your GTA decking and outdoor needs…right? They have built a relationship of trust in cities like Mississauga, Toronto, Oakville, and Oshawa (most of which have showrooms by the way!), working with a variety of clients and budgets to build some truly unique spaces. But did you know that you can reap these same benefits outside of these areas…?

Let’s face it, unfortunate spills and mishaps are going to happen, especially in and around the kitchen. All of your major appliances are there (refrigerator, dish washer, sink, oven, etc), all the food is there, and more often than not…so are all the people. More and more in today’s society, the kitchen is taking on a greater social responsibility as well. Outdoor kitchens and living spaces are all the rage, and the ability to entertain and enjoy “staycations” is almost a must nowadays. So how do you toe the line between style and functionality, while simultaneously preventing as many kitchen accidents as you can? Well that, my friends, is where StoneDeck comes in.
