Transforming decks across Canada one stone at a time

Silca System

NewConstructionWhile we all want our homes to look their best, we also search for the most convenient and hassle-free solutions to our home improvement woes. Building a low maintenance deck can save you a significant amount of time, money and stress. Without a strong, supportive base or weather-resistant surface, you may find yourself with a sunken patio or deteriorating deck—either of which can be quite an eyesore and a strain on your bank account. However, you can avoid such a situation by investing in sturdy deck materials and long-lasting pavers. Silca System’s deck underlayment makes building an elevated deck onto your home a simple task. Plus, it’s also much easier to maintain! 

Remodel_ResurfaceFirst of all, one of the major benefits of using deck materials from Silca System is the level of strength and support you receive from their structural grate. Their hexagonal underlayment is not only made from thick engineered polymer, but it also provides support every two inches. This allows homeowners to create a brick, travertine or granite deck without worrying about whether the deck will be able to withstand the heavy weight of stone pieces or pavers. Unlike wooden decks that can rot and require refinishing every few years, or stone decks built on the ground, an elevated deck made with Silca System and pavers makes for a very low maintenance deck solution. Those who have already used Silca System to repair or create a new deck outside of their Ottawa area homes have found that they can avoid the costs of deteriorating decking. 

BIGinstall3The key to building a low maintenance deck lies in its structure. If you use pressure treated or cedar  lumber for the surface of your Ottawa deck, you can expect to spend a lot of time and money in order to retain its appearance. Otherwise you’re left with a faded, weather-damaged deck that’s not only unpleasant to look at, but that can also be dangerous to walk on. 

BIGconNo one wants to constantly spend time and money in order to fix their outdoor living space. So, instead of building or living with something  that will require a significant amount of maintenance, why not opt to create a brick, travertine, or granite deck by using Silca System’s unique deck material?  Stone Deck Landscapes has all the knowledge, resources  and products to allow you to start enjoying your outdoor living space without the dreaded maintenance.
