5 Reasons you should consider a deck maintenance service

By Rosario Ungaro

We keep the wood hutch we have in our den looking beautiful because we maintain it. Granted it doesn't take much, but we keep it dusted, clean of debris and dirt, and polished to maintain its lustrous finish. It’s a family heirloom. We enjoy it. We know it takes a little work to keep it nice.

It’s Spring and It’s Time to Get Naked

By Rosario Ungaro

It’s spring. It’s time celebrate as we enjoy the rebirth that happens every spring—buds come on trees, flowers start to sprout, and we come out of our indoor hibernation to enjoy the great Canadian tradition of enjoying a good barbecue on our decks and outdoor patios.

A word from Rosario…

Our Blog is about sharing some of what we have learned along the way. (Many contractors even call us for ideas or advice.) We hope it is informative and shows our commitment to continuous learning—something we do so we can bring the very latest and best to our customers. 

You've probably heard the phrase: 

"Some people have twenty-five years of experience. Others have one year of experience, twenty-five times over." 

If a contractor doesn't stay up-to-date on the latest building codes, trends, styles, tools, materials, and products, they'll soon find themselves in the latter category. We work hard to make sure that we are not. We regularly talk with our suppliers, go to industry trade shows, and share information and ideas with our peers to make sure that we stay on top of our game and can continue to bring you the very best in building craftsmanship and knowledge.

I welcome the opportunity to chat with you about your next building project.

Regards,

Rosario Ungaro
