What Makes Us Toronto’s Balcony Flooring Experts
Designer Deck has proudly served the Greater Toronto Area and beyond for the past four decades, taking part in many of Canada’s most significant development projects, both completed and in progress. We have achieved success and recognition in a niche market by continuing to push industry standards and meet the growing demands. We take great pride in our focus on the core elements of our company, which has resulted in our solid and reliable reputation in the building industry.
Here are a few of the valued clients we work with.
A Wide Range of Outdoor Balcony Flooring
At Designer Deck, we endeavour for excellence, consistently taking on new and varied tasks within the construction industry. To continue growing and building on our experiences, we prioritize staying ahead of the curve by striving to exceed our best abilities. We value the opportunity to face new challenges and are constantly seeking ways to become more diverse and our outdoor flooring products more versatile. Here are the core elements of Designer Deck’s approach:
- Our uniquely designed balcony flooring products and installation methods are tailor-made to meet a variety of needs, offering versatile outdoor flooring solutions for various applications. We’ve designed our outdoor balcony flooring to provide solutions for apartments with a balcony to balcony flooring and waterproof flooring for condos.
The most common surface type we lay our deck tiles on is called ‘Torch Down – 2 Ply’. It’s really what most builders use today. Depending on the finish of the substrate, it can sometimes have extreme variation that requires more attention than our traditional levelling methods. This builder had homes with drainpipes on each terrace that were raised much higher than usual. We tackled the issue by integrating our meshed levelling plates to create a more uniform surface, especially around these areas. Our balcony floor tiles can be easily integrated with these parts if and where necessary.
- Our advantage over the competition is our ability to control every aspect of production from the initial design to the final installation. We design and manufacture our own products, allowing us to make changes on the fly in order to adapt to unique situations, such as height code restrictions or fragile surfaces.
With no middleman or vendors to interfere, Designer Deck retains control over the entire process through bringing our balcony flooring ideas to life. This allows us to achieve the hands-on approach we’ve built our business upon and the creative input that makes our products unique.
- Our condo balcony flooring can also be tweaked to work with extreme sloping or variation in a foundation. By means of adding or even removing parts to protect surfaces and accommodate environments such as reverse roofs or torch-down membranes, we offer versatile, adaptable balcony flooring solutions.
Featured here is an example of a 700sq.ft terrace installed with our Vivid Collection of Recycled Plastic (Wide Board) in the colour taupe. The small builder was seeking a cost effective but sleek option to finish a home he was in the process of creating and selling to an exclusive client. This modern balcony design collection of flooring is typically installed on surfaces 200 sq. ft or less due to extreme expansion with exposure to the heat. To accommodate, we released a new system of silicone bumpers installed on the tile’s edges and created a 3/8” gap between each piece. The customer was elated with the outcome, and it has held up wonderfully , even in direct sunlight. Our silicone bumpers can be added if/where required to curb this potential issue and mitigate warping.
- Designer Deck is known for our ability to think outside the box and consistently push the envelope. We are especially proud of our Porsets tile line, which is an innovative solution as a floor covering for a balcony. Our inventive strategies have earned us several patents, making us an industry leader in problem-solving.
Designer Deck’s patented Porsets tile is composed of a proprietary support frame designed to accommodate a slim 3/8” thick porcelain tile rather than the industry standard ¾.” It can be laid on any surface, wholly connected and accordingly height-adjusted. It was designed, rigorously tested and patented in response to a trend with this emerging material used in exterior applications. Most importantly, the product’s price comes in anywhere between $5-8/sq.ft cheaper than any product that exists to date. Learn More
