Have a ground floor apartment in kits and it's got a 16'x32' back yard. Not a perfect rectangle with the building jutting out in a couple spots but rectangular for the most part. The unit to our right has put up a fence to enclose their area and we'd like to do the same to start. The ground is currently a mix of gravel, a small concrete area, and dirt. It's a little ugly it's rather uneven, the gravel is sparse and you can see the black plastic material below in certain spots. We were thinking that with the irregular shape and some small trees against the far wall, putting a deck down over the whole thing would be the easiest solution.
All decks are on the second floor of a row of townhouses and need to be done at the same time. Each decking is approximately 6'x15'.

There are dividing panels between units which need to be removed/set aside all (best attempt made to keep panels intact!)

I am preparing to move back to Vancouver where I have a townhouse. I require a quotation for the installation of sleepers (only the structure. Deck surface by others) for a deck structure as per the attached. The deck is to be right at grade, and my thoughts were to have the structure lay across the top of an existing concrete deck and then slightly below grade placed on compacted fill/sand (pressure treated/moisture tolerent). The current yard surrounding the existing deck is hard packed dirt topped with pea gravel. The yard area is appximatly 16' x 12' (max!).
I appreciate this is a fairly small job, but if you could kindly indicate the price to do this or even a day labor rate, I would appreciate it.
Job entails redoing the vinyl and wood railings on three second-floor decks. Two decks are estimate 3' x 6', larger deck is 9' x 12'9". For the larger deck we are considering building a raised wood deck on top of the new vinyl - if possible, please quote on building a cedar deck. Project covers work on both homes of a duplex, and directly with the homeowners.
We post a listing for a deck that sits over a living space. Currently seeking 2 qualified individuals, able to tear off, waterproof bldg. perimeter, create slope, re-sheet, install cant strips and various guard assembly details. Given Vancouver has limited opportunity for consistent weather, time is sensitive.
Forward your letter of intent and please keep it short and to the point. Don't forget to include your contact information.
Thank you for your interest.
Would like to create a fence on perimeter of backyard (33wide x 55long x 6tall) with an access gate for cars against the lane. Two additional sections (one 10ft, the other 12ft) needed inside the yard perimeter with two gates. All perimeter fencing to be built on concrete retaining walls. Metal brackets already in concrete. Would be very interested in a power gate for the car access in the lane.
Build a floating deck in the backyard of my condo in East Vancouver (ground floor unit with easy lane access). Approximately 150-200sqft cedar deck, sitting partially over a concrete slab, built close to the ground. Cannot be attached to the building in any way. No railings or stairs required as deck will be enclosed within fence/building. Time-frame can be somewhat flexible. Loose drawings/photo attached.
At one time, my house had a wooden front porch. The porch was covered in concrete at one point without adding to the footing underneath. The porch has tilted away from the house.
The posts supporting the roof of the porch have been propped up (so that the roof is level).
The project scope is the removal of the concrete and old porch and rebuilding of a wood porch. 2 new footings will probably be required. The porch area is approximately 6' x 12' and is approximately 4' from the ground.
The project is in Vancouver and all bylaws will need to be complied with. The building permit is pre-existing.
We own a detached home. We are looking for someone to install an air conditioner in a window frame in our master bedroom. Ideally, we would also like to use the same person to put down some stone/concrete behind the house to act as a small deck to put a table on. The size of the area is only about 6 sq ft and it's on the ground.
I take ownership of my condo on the 8th July, and before I move in I would like to build a fence on 1 side of the patio (approx 7' feet height and 4'8" wide) + a raised deck (approx. 6' long x 4' 8" width x 2 feet high).
A paint job of the condo (walls only) - living room, bedrm, 1 small wall kitchen, 1 small wall bathroom, 1 small wall entrance hall.
Handyman service to assemble Ikea couch and curtains installing.
Thank you and looking forward to see some quotes.
Project will be for a sundeck which is 27ft by 14ft with stairs off to the left of it. My house is a Vancouver special and is 9yrs old around the kingsway and Victoria area of Vancouver. I need someone who could come over and give me a free estimate on this deck and suggest materials that may be suited for this project. I need a contractor that is honest, reliable and is very professional in their work. If you think this is a job for you and your company don't hesitate to email me back with you contact information Thank you once again.
There is a covered ground level patio. There is no access to this patio from the townhouse. We want to enclose the patio to be a storage area. The outside walls must match the existing building. as it was recently painted and rain screened last year. There is a bathroom vent which will need to be extended10 feet to the new exterior wall. New wiring will need to be added to put elecrtical plugs on the new wall. The ceiling will need to be altered for new lights as well.

Existing deck in a Vancouver Special house. We are modernizing the appearance of the house, and want to replace the existing railings (vertical, aluminum, 30yrs old) with horizontal wooden railings (narrow slits) with vinly or aluminum top rail.
We are open to using new materials, such as RPL. We are also open to design input.
This would be for a back deck which is 24'x23'x20ft, and a front deck which is 3ft x 35 ft x 3 ft (all measures approximate).
We have two roof top decks in an apartment building downtown Vancouver. I have been in communciation with our strata council and they have requested that I submit a proposal to them at the next AGM. I have a bit of a catch-22 situation as I would like to get quotes from contractors but I have no idea on the amount of money we have to spend in order to get a quote.
The two roof top decks measure, apprx. 89' x 64' and 82' x 60'. What I have envisioned is some permanent picnic type tables, some lounge type chairs, shrubbery and plants, and corners with permanent high top tables with stools.
The decks have some planters and some sitting areas currently.
Would it be possible to get some kind of quotes, perhaps starting with $10,000 and up to 40 or 50 thousand? Again, I have no idea how much money we would be able to put towards this and of course, it would have to go to a vote.
I have a condo with a 300 square foot balcony that is made up of concrete flooring currently.
I don't like the concrete look and want it to be a nice wood covering over the concrete. So basically the balcony/deck is already there it just needs a nice wood covering deck look that will last several years.
I'd like to hear some options and prices for something that is strong, has a nice finish, and will last several years.
