Rooftop Deck Contractor
Across Toronto, several high-rise condo developments, residential apartments, and commercial and corporate spaces have created for themselves rooftop deck spaces designed to offer premium amenities to those that live and work in these buildings.
As deck builders in the GTA, we most often see rooftop decks used for urban landscaping, gardens, green spaces, and what are called ‘sky parks’. They can make for the perfect entertainment space during those hot summer months, are inviting to guests and healthy conversation, and add another area to develop and re-develop as a property owner sees fit.
In a city where space on the ground is limited, rooftop decks are a creative opportunity to establish a whole new dynamic several stories up off the ground. While we struggle on ground-level at finding anything other than concrete in some areas, the rooftop is an escape into outdoor living exclusive to those with access.
Getting a Rooftop Deck For Your Building
To determine if you can have a rooftop deck, you have to get permission from the building management. This is the first step. By hiring GTA Decks, we are happy to handle any difficulties that may come with getting approval. Having done this hundreds of times, we can also help in getting permits from your condo board.
A rooftop deck is all about achieving safety and contributing value while meeting building requirements and the needs of the client. Materials chosen must be approved for outdoor use, fire-resistant, and tested on outdoor rooftop deck projects. The materials we use as rooftop contractors for decks in Toronto include composites, free maintenance, IPE wood, Trex, fiberon, AZEK, and others. These are all premiere, high quality woods that deliver aesthetics and performance.
We Can Help Build You a Rooftop Deck!
When you hire a rooftop deck contractor, you’re making the job for yourself very easy. As we work with you on your rooftop deck design, we will ensure any and all building codes are being followed. There are also regulations for rooftop decks that have to be considered, usually stemming from requirements your condo board has assigned. Our team will also determine whether a crane is needed, and how to move around any existing outbuildings, power lines, or other problematic obstructions.
Outside of getting those approvals and doing the heavy lifting, we always work hard to deliver a finished product that is soundly designed and installed. Rooftop decks are quite a bit different from ground-level decks. They are often exposed to harsher, prolonged weather, with sun damage and wind damage being a common challenge on older decks. The best rooftop material for decks in Toronto is that which requires little maintenance, that doesn’t splinter, and which is strong and durable. We’ll ensure anything that’s
installed on your rooftop is built to last.
