The treated wood patio of this Mirabel home had not weathered well and was in need of a complete remake. Our clients wanted a modern and functional patio. The terrace, a PurPatio.ca design, combines the durability of composites from Trex’s Transcend Tropical series and the natural warmth of Western red cedar. The screen, with a horizontal pattern, affords protection from prying eyes while giving a clean look to the structure. Choosing a hybrid patio is a wise and ecologically sound option. The floor made of composites features 95% recycled materials and needs little maintenance. The red cedar, used for vertical surfaces, is a durable, Canadian product.
