A Curved Dream Deck Instead of a Cottage
Designed for Paul Lafrance Design, this curved deck in Mississauga is loaded with features. From frosted privacy screens, waterproofing to below, louvered roofs and Invisirails. 5 foot wide stairs make the ascent feel grand. The curved main section makes a statement– “This is not your average deck”.
The clients both agreed to forgo the cottage and build a dream deck instead. They watched Paul Lafrance creating these gorgeous show decks for years before they decided to pull the trigger on this masterpiece. Paul cant design all of them, so he referred them to us to work his brand of magic. Scroll through the gallery to see the renderings that helped the clients envision how their deck would look when it was done.

Curved Decks Done Right!
This deck utilizes helical footings to support it. These are engineered screw piles that stay in the ground permanently. They are engineered for load and take the risk out of footings.
The beams are straight, but being on a slight angle around does away with the need for additional braces– they are the braces. The rim is a laminated solid structural member– not a kerf cut. Kerf cuts are weak and thats not where we want to go with our decks.
Everything is waterproofed and drains through evestroughs to drains. This means the whole frame and the whole area beneath the deck are dry spaces. The wooden frame should last 50-100 years.
Master Deck Builders in Mississauga
Deck building is more than just cobbling together a platform. Any handyman can do that. When it comes to building a deck that is flat and level and square, that takes a master builder.
To build a curved deck with a fair curve it takes specialists. Supervisors that know how to build have to be with the project all the way through. We made about 25 trips to this site over the 3 month build period. The builder is a company we no longer work with. They are part of the reason we are building with a select group of crews to this day.
