Privacy Wall Contractors

Do you have nosy neighbors or loudness around you – a privacy screen or privacy wall is the perfect solution. Unlike an ordinary fence or divider, privacy walls and screens are distinct installations usually between 4 and 6 feet in height. Their sole objective is to maximize privacy which means that while some fences may incorporate gaps, slats, holes, or similar functional designs, a privacy wall and privacy screens offers nothing but wall.

What Are Privacy Walls and Privacy Screens?

Whether to choose a privacy screen, a privacy wall, or a fence, it all depends on the privacy wanted. A privacy wall limits an outsider’s view and is preferred by homeowners who like decorating, décor, and/or creative design. A privacy screen is used often around patios, swimming pools and hot tubs, and for specific builds in the backyard.

You have probably seen privacy screens in Toronto before and you may not have even known it. A privacy screen can be constructed from different materials, in different sizes, and can be customized in any of a variety of colors. Privacy screens are most commonly built from lattice or large wood pieces, typically installed by the panel. In general, you don’t surround a backyard with privacy screens. Instead, they are meant for smaller areas – hence why patios, pools, and porches. They are also commonly used
in gardens to help block out sunlight and to create shade.

Cost-wise, there are benefits to having a privacy screen as opposed to installing a privacy wall. A privacy screen covers a smaller space so you have this added benefit in minimizing cost. Comparatively, analyzing the material piece by piece, screens cost less than what would be required for a privacy wall or fence. That said, as an experienced GTA deck builder service, we have found privacy walls appeal to homeowners are desire a little more seclusion in their backyard. Toronto’s filled with properties that are
seemingly being pushed into one another almost. A privacy wall is a way to allow you to feel comfortable on your own property.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I live in a typical east end semi and this past summer we interviewed with different contractors to build a new back deck, we knew we... wanted to go with composite material as we wanted something that would last a long time and that was low maintenance. After meeting with 5 different companies, we decided to hire GTA decks. When Serge came to see the site, he was professional, informative and efficient. He answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns with ease and confidence.He did warn us that the permit process may take a few weeks which it did but once the permit was approved, Jason from Serge's team was quick to start the project and got it done within 2 weeks. He was friendly, professional and very skilled! Serge also let us know the aluminum railings would take a while to come in but once it did, his team was ready to install them immediately.Overall, Serge was very helpful and he definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to decks. We did have to follow up a few times regarding scheduling and timing, however Serge was on top of it and made sure everything was transparent. We would highly recommend GTA decks, we enjoyed working with them and most importantly we love our new deck!read more

With so many deck builders out there, we finally settled with GTA Decks, as Serge provided professional service throughout and the deck was completed... with care. We have a walkout basement so the deck is 9ft off the ground, Serge took care of applying for a permit etc. With the pandemic, the city took a while to process the papers, however, drawings had to be revised and re-submitted to include a staircase to the garden for obvious reasons as this was not in our initial plan. But once it was all approved, Serge and his team completed the project. We are looking forward to enjoying our deck this summer. GTA Decks is top quality and you will not be more
