Our Team

All of our employees are fully trained through our QC program. Our carpenters are either ticketed or being apprenticed for larger scale projects, and we always have a ticketed carpenter overseeing the project on site. Our vinyl decking installers have completed a qualification program with all the credentials that are required. For our railing and construction jobs, we use Canstruct Engineering to ensure that the BC Building Code Requirements are not just met, but exceeded. If permits and engineering schedules are required, we are happy to supply those to our customers.

At Arbutus Sundecks, we are a big family who works hard to get the job done right. We aim to exceed expectations and leave you feeling satisfied with a job well done.
