Our client wanted the perfect place to have their family and friends over. They were pitched by some other deck builders in Winnipeg but wasn’t feeling what was proposed. Then, they met with the team at Windeck and we promised a phenomenal plan which includes custom cabinets, privacy fences, pergolas! All deck features would be built with industry leading Wolf PVE decking and other materials which would perform during summer season and hold their own during the winter. The time came to break ground on the ultimate paradise featuring privacy and pergolas for pool parties!

No miters allowed – our smooth, seamless corners satisfy

Custom Wolf PVC decking cabinets

As part of our project plan, we were building cabinets from Wolf PVC decking for outdoor use. We knew the Wolf PVC product would be able to stand up to the heavily rain in the summer and the cold during winter. But our client had another request – no miters on the cabinets. However, we already showed them an ‘U’ shaped with tail design. This is when our ingenuity kicked into high gear. We scored the backside of the Wolf PVC boards, heated them to make them flexible, and then bent each board on-site to form the angles required. Pretty progressive stuff!

Something needs to be said about our pergola design

Keeping cool during a hot Winnipeg summer is a must! Part of the project was to build a place to have drinks and food in the comfort of shade. The creative process led us to designing a free-standing pergola with retractable sunscreen meshing. The pergola remains upright with support from cantilevers, but nothing else. We foresee many good times to be had by our customer while overlooking their pool!

Privacy fence with prowess

The two other mentionable pieces for this project are the privacy fence and pool storage. Our privacy fence makes an inventive use of In-Lite lighting. By using LED back lighting placed under the top ridge, it showcases our craftsmanship of the privacy fence at any hour of the day.

Plenty of pool storage

Finally, this backyard paradise is complete with storage built from Wolf PVC decking. The storage doors blend in with the rest of the deck and the structure itself is strengthened by a hidden aluminum frame. The storage doesn’t detract from the space but offers plenty of flexibility and allows our customer to keep things tidy!
