Tips from a Toronto Deck-Building Pro: Tip #9

Don’t Forget to Look Up

Pergola with Retractable Canopy We ain’t in California!

Here in Toronto we never know what to expect when it comes to our weather. Plan to extend the usability of your deck by considering the weather factors that will affect your ability to use it. Are you sensitive to sun? Consider a pergola with a retractable canopy. Do you want to be out while it’s raining? Consider a Louvred Roof solution that can be open when it’s not too hot or when the deck is in the shade, or closed to protect you from the sun or rain.

With a little forethought, you’ll have no excuse not to be outdoors on your new deck enjoying the summer—rain or shine.
