Making over a townhouse balcony from old wood to a beautiful composite from TruNorth Decking is relatively easy and can make the difference between not using the space to sitting out there all the time!

We outfitted this balcony with Hazelwood composite laid out in a picture frame pattern. Simple but nice and will last forever!

Always fun to see the difference even for a small balcony when the grey concrete has been replaced with a beautiful flooring or, in this case, Hazelwood composite. As well, we added five inset lights on the outside of the balcony that will light up the inside in the evenings. A small remote controls it all.

Always fun to see the difference some nice composite decking can make on a Toronto condo balcony. The pictures below show a nice comparison and it's fun to see how much it has improved. As well, the balcony on the left will never have any pools of water that you have to step around. It will last forever and will even protect the concrete below it so that it will not have to be renewed as often as other balconies.

The combination of grass and cedar makes for a beautiful terrace design and place to relax.

Cedar Condo Balcony With Grass

Artificial grass has come a long way and our friends at Design Turf are always there to supply us with terrific artifical grass.  This grass was their Natural 60 which is really quite incredible and I defy anyone to tell the difference except this stuff you don't have to cut!

This condo balcony in the heart of Toronto was designed using cedar on one side and artificial grass on the other.  The idea was to have a soft place for their child to run around as well as some nice decking to remind them of the cottage.

The cedar portion was installed using a staggered pattern to give the feel of a real deck (which it is) and was stained using Natural Cedar from Sansin stains.
