Sunday is usually when I post a lite update for the Holmes Spot, but this article was just too heavy to pass up. When a local deck crew working for Paverdeck rebuilt a Canadian war veteran's old and dilapidated deck, it got the attention of Mike Holmes and his crew. Not only were they doing a good deed for the serviceman, but they were using an extraordinary product that rivals a traditional deck made of composite or cedar. Read on...

Good Deed by Local Firm Gets Noticed
Local Paverdeck Crew with Mike Holmes
When the Soo’s own PAVERDECK decided to build a deck for an injured Canadian war veteran returning from Afghanistan, their objective was to only to acknowledge this war veteran and contribute something towards improving his situation on returning home. “We partnered with Jim Caruk, the well-known HGTV host, and founder of Redoes For Heroes Foundation and chose an initial project in Toronto”, said John Naccarato, Paverdeck’s President. “While building the deck in Scarborough, some Mike Holmes Crew members stopped by and were so impressed with the Paverdeck system, they referred it to Mike to consider for an upcoming episode of HGTV’s “Make it Right”. We made the pitch at the tailgate of our truck, and Mike quickly threw his support behind the product for the show”.
Before the deck was installed
The Paverdeck system is the only maintenance-free lifetime deck available in the market, and at a price that competes with a traditional cedar or composite deck. When you factor in the lifespan of the Paverdeck system and elimination of annual maintenance costs, this type deck is actually less expensive than any traditional deck, and will hold its value over time because it does not need replacing. The Paverdeck system is made from recycled steel, is the only deck with a zero-carbon footprint during use, and is itself 100 percent recyclable. The Paverdeck system has the potential to
save millions of acres of forests and will never see a landfill or incinerator. It is more environment friendly than a wood or composite deck.
The project with Mike Holmes was filmed this past week in Toronto, and the company had all employees involved. “It was a great experience for all involved, and the Mike Holmes crew and organization were top notch and personable. We are looking forward to more opportunities with them in the future”. The show is scheduled to air sometime this spring.
