Ottawa Deck Builders Guide to Selecting the Perfect Deck Material
At Kovar Contracting, we offer different types of deck materials: pressure-treated spruce, cedar, or a myriad of different composites and PVC products from multiple distributors. Your choice of material will not only impact the price of your deck, but every material also brings its own advantages and disadvantages including longevity, cost, maintenance, durability, and warranty.
Below are a few pointers for the materials our deck builders Ottawa work with, including their pros and cons for your consideration. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you still have any questions about the individual materials. One of our experts will gladly help you out.
Pressure Treated Spruce
Pressure-treated spruce decks provide an affordable and robust outdoor addition to any property. The wood undergoes vapor treatment or immersion in preservatives, such as copper azole, to prolong its life and enhance its durability against insects, decay, and rot. These specialty-treated decks use natural softwood lumber treated for outdoor use, making them ideal for constructing surfaces that can stand up to cold temperatures. Pressure-treated spruce decks are easy to work with hand tools, require a minimum of maintenance, and offer a long-lasting addition to the property that can give it a touch of character which isn’t achievable with composite decking options.
Composite Products Ottawa
The big advantage of composite products – especially when compared to spruce or cedar– is that it requires little to no maintenance and does not splinter. In fact, some composite types may even be made from recycled sawdust. Aesthetically, however, it comes with some downsides as it does resemble plastic more than actual wood. In terms of price, composite is also much more expensive than pressure-treated wood. It often comes with lifetime warranties and will never warp or expand and contract.
Pressure Treated Cedar
Pressure-treated cedar decks can be the perfect outdoor addition to any home. Cedar is one of the strongest and most durable types of wood, making this type of deck incredibly resilient against most weather conditions. The pressure-treating process gives off no chemicals or odors and is safe to use around children and pets. Not to mention that these decks require very little maintenance since they are already so prepped and ready to go upon purchase. Pressure-treated cedar decks are truly one of the best options when looking to spruce up your backyard space with an easy, long-lasting solution!
Deck Made of Metal Ottawa
A deck made of metal may seem unusual at first. However, decks made from aluminum, for example, are actually quite practical. They are very robust and resistant. Mold and insects are non-issues. At the same time, aluminum is a very light material. It is easy to take care of and lasts a lifetime. But longevity comes at a price: aluminum decks are generally the most expensive variety and are only really ever used for docks and areas with extreme moisture.
Whichever decking you have chosen and/or require, we provide a full project management experience for the installation. Our team of experienced deck contractors Ottawa is fully trained and skilled in all aspects of deck installation, and we provide high-quality and meticulous care to every task. We would also inform you if your deck design would require a permit from the city. Kovar Contracting ensures the final result is delivered exactly as you desired, sturdily created, and visually appealing. On-time and within budget.

Ottawa Deck Repair
Perhaps you are not looking to actually build a new deck and instead want to repair your existing one. No problem! Our experienced deck contractors can also take care of any required deck repair Ottawa.
Generally speaking, it is always a good idea to inspect your deck once or twice a year, ideally in the fall and at the beginning of spring after a long winter season. You may detect loose railings, missing nails, or damaged boards. Depending on the material your deck is made of, mold and rot can also affect the deck’s integrity. And when you discover any of the above, you want those taken care of in a professional manner. Especially since our Kovar Contracting experts know what to look for and can also pick up on issues that may not have openly surfaced yet but can cause bigger problems down the line.
