Top 3 Deck Materials Used in Canada

Did you know...? The most widely-used deck materials in Canada are pine lumber, cedar wood, and IPE. These are all natural types of wood that require some sort of treating, sealing, or staining to stay looking their best. Keep reading to learn more about the importance of deck staining.

Steel Deck Framing

When it comes to constructing your new deck, the choice of framing material is crucial to ensuring its longevity, stability, and overall quality. While traditional lumber framing has been the go-to option for many years, there’s a compelling case for steel deck framing, which offers numerous benefits:

  • Strength & Durability: Metal deck framing ensures the structural integrity of the deck remains intact over time.
  • Low Maintenance: Steel framed decks require minimal maintenance compared to wood, with no need for treatments against mould or termites.
  • Design Versatility: Steel framing offers unmatched flexibility in design, it can accommodate various decking materials and design styles seamlessly.
  • Long-Term Investment: With commercial-grade strength and resistance to deterioration, steel framing outlasts traditional lumber framing, offering a solid foundation for your deck that will stand the test of time.

The Importance of Deck Staining

Natural wood has a calming and earthy look and feel that will simply never go out of style. That being said, if you are looking to have a natural wood deck installed, there are a few things we would like to share with you. All natural wood will begin to decay, therefore requiring treating, sealing, or staining every 2-3 years to uphold its colour and quality.
Wood treating prolongs the lifespan of the wood, by protecting it from exposure to sunlight, rain, snow, and so on. Please note that deck materials such as composite and PVC are synthetic and do not require treating. With years of experience installing and treating decks, we assure you that our full deck staining services across Toronto and the GTA will have your deck looking brand-new in no time.

What Our Clients Say About Our Decking Services

Backyard Deck Installation – Homestars Review

We wanted to get a deck done just like everyone else this summer and found John and his team from Action Home Services on Homestars. Price is competitive with other companies, but I found that GSU’s estimates were the most detailed and clear.

From the first call, John was friendly, honest and transparent around the process, lead time and cost. He guided us through the process and kept us updated on timing and project status.

The crew led by Mike and Antony did a spectacular job and was very easy to work with. Quality workmanship and appreciated the fact they always made time to answer questions. Also appreciated that they tidied up at the end of the day. The little things that make a difference with great service! We are really happy with the end results of the deck!

Thank John and AHS crew!


New Deck Build – Homestars Review

This was the second time we used AHS for an outdoor reno. This time, John, Renat, and their team did an amazing job completely transforming our backyard from unusable space to a modern deck and patio.

Even with the delays due to the lumber shortage over the summer/fall, everything went smoothly, and frequent communication helped keep our minds at ease.

Kudos to the whole team on site, who’s work was fast, efficient, and professionally done.

So excited to enjoy our new deck and interlock backyard in the spring.

Can’t recommended AHS enough!


Deck Design & Build – Homestars Review

Action Home Services designed and built a backyard deck for us

The design and work were done very quickly and very professional

I would highly recommend John Karpov and the team from Action Home Services if you are considering a backyard deck project.


Deck Installation and more – Homestars Review

We were so impressed with Action Home Services from initial contact for a quote to the completion of our project. Shortly after I posted my project as ready to hire on Homestars, John contacted me and we set a time to meet. John made a very good impression. He was on time, understood what we wanted to get done and had great suggestions for things we hadn’t thought all the way through. We met with three other contractors and the amount quoted from Action Home Services was comparable and competitive. What I appreciated most though, that really made Action Home Services stand out was the level of detail that was included in their quote. There was absolutely nothing missed on this quote, so I felt confident that I was not missing anything that could significantly add to the overall cost in the end. John is very responsive via phone and email. I had questions along the way and he responded very quickly and updated the quote if necessary.

When the project started, we were blown away by their professionalism. They arrived the evening before they started to drop off their equipment and depending on what was getting done on any of the days they were here (eg: demolition, interlocking, cedar deck, landscaping lighting, sodding, planting, etc.), there were several people working. I mention this because in the past we have had work done by contractors with smaller operations and this experience just took it to a whole new level! Action Home Services completed our project in less than two weeks. They always arrived on time and were such a hard-working team! Neighbours on our street were also impressed and hired them for a project as well.

Our project manager Renate was wonderful to work with and everyone on the team was so professional and polite. They were so organized and coordinated and genuinely seemed to enjoy their work and working together. It was truly a pleasure to have Action Home Services complete our project. They made us feel valued and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is looking for a reliable landscaping contractor.

Replace Deck With Newer Structure – Homestars Review

Back in 2016, we hired a contractor to replace our deck and install a new one based on a larger design. Needless to say they did not know what they were doing and misinformed us on the need for a permit. When the City caught us in 2017 and issued an Order to Comply we were forced to proceed to Committee of Adjustments to approve the structure. When we got that approval in 2018 and submitted the structure’s design for a building permit, we received the permit in 2019 yet the Building Inspector informed us the structure was under-supported and needed to be completely replaced and the City required us to comply immediately.

After tendering a few quotes we discovered our neighbours had recently had their backyard redone using AHS. We got a comprehensive quote from their rep John and an approximate start date. Since we wanted to close the file with the City and asked John & AHS about performing the work in the winter, they assured us that they work year-round and can compensate for cold weather (particularly with pouring and curing concrete for the support pillars) and asked that they follow the plans as approved by the City and to coordinate any exceptions or changes with the assigned Building Inspector.

With the combination of a diligent and skilled team, including the assigned PM Eugene, and having the luck of an unseasonably warmer Holiday season, we managed to have the old deck removed, old pillars dug out, new supports dug and passed inspection, and the new deck and stones installed and ready for final inspection within a two week period (not including taking breaks for Sundays, Christmas, and Boxing Day. There were three small fixes that needed attention (not related to inspection) and they managed to get it done the day of.

John, Eugene, and their team did a great job and were completely available for questions and transparent in the needs, timing, and, when scope changed, costs. The crew on site arrived at 7am sharp (even before sunrise as the earliest allowed time for noise per bylaws) and worked as close to 7pm, putting in full days.

You can tell by their equipment (which they own and not just rent), their skills, and the supplies they use that AHS takes every project seriously and know that their reputation is based on every job they do, taking pride in their work.

I will definitely be using AHS for my next home projects and recommend their work, especially considering how they handled it all with regards to the City scrutiny and weather they had to manage.

Deck Installation – Homestars Review

Great guys and great service. These guys came in and broke my old deck in a matter of hours. As soon as they disposed the material all the new wood and composite arrived. They have put in the post and finished my deck in 2 days. Loved the job.
