8 steps we follow for building decks in Calgary

We’re more than just deck contractors; we’re your partners in crafting the perfect outdoor oasis. From the initial consultation to the final hammering of nails, our deck company is dedicated to delivering the highest quality craftsmanship. We use only the finest materials to ensure your deck not only looks stunning but stands the test of time.

What sets us apart from other deck building companies in Calgary is our commitment to personalized service. We understand that every project is unique, and we tailor our approach to your specific needs and desires. Our deck contractors take the time to listen to your ideas and provide expert guidance, ensuring that the final result exceeds your expectations.


Decking design is the crucial first step to any deck build. If you have a rough idea in your head then you can sit down with our team and we will help draw your deck design plans out with you. If you have a photo of your dream deck then that can be used to base your home’s perfect deck off of so be sure to send that our way. After we have it all drawn up we will get the deck blueprints over to you for final approval and then we can begin building your backyard deck design.


Deck material is really up to the homeowner’s discretion. We can give you advice on what materials work best for what climates and situations but ultimately you make the choice. Many people think that a wood deck design is their only option but there are so many more choices for your outdoor decking. Our Calgary deck builders can help guide you through the pros and cons of a composite deck, pvc, vinyl, cedar, bamboo, and even pressure treated wood.


Although these don’t come standard… they are certainly an option for those who request. We use a computer program to create this and then we email it to you or deliver on a flash drive if you’d prefer. This is generally used so you can see it and approve with the highest confidence. Our 3D deck renderings are $200 for a basic render but if you choose us for the build then we will subtract the cost from your final bill so is of no cost to you.


Screw piles are basically the foundation for your deck. Without these your deck and frame would have nothing to sit on top of! Some home owners believe we need the proper weather conditions to install screw piles but we can actually install these in any temperature weather condition. Screw piles don’t need time to set; we just install them and they are immediately able to support the deck frame.


No deck can truly be started without building a deck frame. We do 2×10 joists and 12″ on centre… that’s right – we overbuild on purpose so it’s solid! 3-ply beams with 6×6 posts on the screw piles because things in Alberta have to be built properly to handle our extreme weather. Always use our absolute best pressure treated wood.


Deck installations can range greatly in the time they require. If you have a 1200 square foot outdoor deck that wraps around your home and has multiple levels then it will take a few full days with our entire team on deck (pun intended). But to give you a rough idea of the length of time required for standard 12×16 or 10×16 decks… we are there for a day with a team of three. Once we are done the deck install you are immediately able to go out and enjoy it with your friends and family!


A Calgary deck builder is no good if they don’t also provide a reliable and good-looking railing, right!? Deck railing can be made from so many materials that you’re sure to find a good look and feel for your home. The standard deck rail we recommend is an aluminum railing. We can use whatever type of aluminum you want to be able to best match anyone’s budget. Once the railings are installed they are immediately ready to be used so don’t worry about anyone leaning on them too soon. You also don’t have to worry about anyone leaning on wet railing paint since they come already powder coated from the factory – good to go!


Although typically the customer watches us build the deck we still like to do an official walkthrough of the final product. When you see us starting to load up our tools to leave you can be sure we’ll be knocking on your door to show you our finished work. If you are not home when we finish the deck we can come back later to show you everything. If we built a wood deck then we will show you how to properly care for it but if we used Trex for your outdoor decking then it requires no special care whatsoever. Ask us about our Trex decking (we know you’ll love it!)


At Maritime West Construction, we understand the importance of having a beautiful and functional outdoor space where you can relax and entertain with family and friends. That is why we are dedicated to providing outstanding deck construction services that raise the curb appeal and value of your house.

From concept to completion, we work closely with you to create a custom deck that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations. Maritime West Construction can assist you with building a new deck, fixing an old one, or just improving your outside area.


What materials do you use for building decks?

At Maritime West Construction, we use a wide range of materials for decks in Calgary such as 

  • Wood (like cedar, redwood, and pressure-treated lumber), 
  • Composite decking 
  • PVC
What's the lifespan of a deck?

The average lifespan of a deck depends on the material used and maintenance. On average, wood decks can last 10-20 years with proper care, while composite and PVC decks can exceed 25 years.

Do you offer any warranties on your deck construction work?

Yes, we provide a comprehensive warranty package to ensure your peace of mind. Our composite deck materials from trusted brands like Trex and Timberteck (and more) typically come with warranties ranging from 25 to 50 years due to our status as Platinum installers for these companies, meaning you’re covered by their guarantees. In addition, we back our craftsmanship with a solid workmanship warranty on our actual builds, giving you added assurance that your investment is protected and built to last.

How much does it cost to build a deck in Calgary?

Deck construction costs vary significantly based on size, materials, location, and design. On average, a basic wood deck can cost between $15 and $30 per square foot, while composite decks can be pricier. At Maritime West Construction, we suggest you consult our professionals. 

Contact us for consultation. 

How long does it take to complete a deck construction project?

The timeline for completing a deck construction project varies depending on several factors, primarily the size and complexity of the project. For instance, a standard 20×10 deck can typically be constructed in a day. However, if your project includes additional features like railings, skirting, privacy screens, or if the deck has a larger square footage, it may extend the construction timeline. For a more precise estimate tailored to your specific project, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us, and we’ll be happy to provide you with a rough time quote.

Can you also build me a patio at the same time?

Yes, we can.  Many people get the two terms confused.  To be clear, a deck is an open outdoor porch or platform without a roof that extends from a house. On the other hand, a patio is a paved area that’s directly on the ground, which can either be attached or detached from a house.  If you have been searching for both a deck and a patio construction company in Calgary then you have found your team!  Reach out today and we’ll get you a quote.

What does it cost to build a 12x12 deck?

That would depend on the material.  Pressure Treated Wood would cost approximately $4k-$5k for a 12×12 deck.
