Zohreh and her family have lived in their beautiful West Vancouver home that overlooks the Lions Gate Bridge and downtown Vancouver for over 15 years. On a clear day, you can see all the way to Mt. Baker, but Zohreh’s favourite view is when the clouds roll in low over the city, leaving just the tips of high-rises peaking through the thick, white blanket.
A material that would do their home justice
With such an incredible vista, the family spends a lot of time on their two large decks. But, the decks were aging and in need of refurbishment. The glass railings had become foggy, obstructing the sight lines to the city and water below and the vinyl was looking worn.
The home being older amongst a neighbourhood of new builds, they didn’t want to sink unnecessary funds into the deck renovation. Zohreh needed something practical. They also have a fluffy little Pomeranian named Mini, who hasn’t quite got the hang of making it to the lawn for bathroom breaks. They also needed something durable and easy to clean. The vinyl worked well for the family, but they weren’t sure what brand to use. The previous vinyl deck worked well for the family, but not knowing the brand, they weren’t sure what material to install in this deck renovation.
Duradek vinyl for the win
Zohreh did some research on vinyl and heard about Duradek through neighbours. She decided that Duradek was her best choice because of the quality and variety of styles to choose from. When she called Duradek headquarters, they referred her to Citywide Sundecks, an authorized installer.
Citywide removed the existing vinyl and installed Duradek Okanagan line in Linen, which complemented the exterior of the home and the adjacent kitchen on the interior. Citywide completed the deck renovation with elegant finishes including flushed seams, welded PVC perimeter flashing, and new aluminum and glass railing.
This family’s new deck is a stunning area for outdoor enjoyment and entertainment. The views are even more enjoyable now, with a beautiful, practical deck and railings that will last for decades to come.
