1 – We always provide detailed quotes

When you’re spending thousands of dollars building or renovating your sundeck, you want to know exactly what you’re getting for your money. You don’t want to pay more than you have to, but you want to make sure your deck is going to be durable and beautiful.

We start with asking questions and understanding your needs to make the best recommendations possible. We’ll review your options with you and share our experience so that you can feel confident and supported in your decisions. After we understand what you need and want, we’ll compile a detailed quote that clearly outlines the project phases, materials, and costs.

2 – We install and repair all decking types

Want to change your style of deck? Not sure what decking you want? No problem. Many deck contractors only work with one or two types of decking. We have experience in vinyl, composite, cedar, pine, hardwood, fiberglass and more. We can construct a new deck or work with your original structure. We’ve even got you covered for patio covers, privacy walls, and custom railings. No matter what you’re starting with or what you want to have, our experience and expertise will ensure that we provide you just what you want, efficiently and affordably.


3 – We do more than decks

We’re not just experts in sundecks, we know exterior construction and waterproofing too. By staffing crew members with expertise in all elements of home improvement, we ensure that no matter the project, we have an expert on hand to get it done.

We don’t work with tunnel vision, we see the bigger picture. We build and install decks in a way that maintains the integrity of your home’s complete waterproofing and structural systems.

Our commercial and industrial branch, Citywide Building Envelope, caters to the needs of Stratas, Property Managers, Developers, and Architects. We handle siding, traffic coatings, and balconies in new construction and restoration projects.

_I was impressed with the service and the timely manner in which they scheduled the project. They arrived when they said, did a great job, and were finished when they promised._

Our team is big enough to get any job done, but not so big that you’re ever treated like a drop in the bucket.

Unlike many small one-man shows, we have full licensing and insurance. You’re not on the hook if something goes wrong. We also can’t disappear with your money and leave you high and dry.

Citywide is a local, family owned business that prides ourselves on serving families just like our own. We believe in doing the right thing and building decks that we can be proud of.

  • My experience with Paul and his Citywide Sundeck crew has been nothing but positive. They are on time and completely professional and able to offer solutions to complicated waterproofing challenges.

    Joe C. – Vancouver

  • I’m a general contractor in the lower mainland. I contacted Paul to help us re-vinyl a deck that used to be fiberglass. GREAT customer service, the job was professionally done by 2 of his crew members. When I called 4 other companies to look at the job, no one came or called back. Paul was attentive to our needs & was able to squeeze us in with a 2-3 day lead time.   Thank you so much for your consistent attention to detail, professionalism, & continuous strive for quality.

    Steve – New Westminster

  • Hard working and respectful crew. Deck turned out great. I would recommend Citywide to others who are considering building or replacing their deck.

    Vito – North Vancouver

  • Two years ago we hired Citywide to renovate our sundeck and back porch. We were very happy with the results and we are enjoying them every day. Last month we had them renovate our front stairs and walkway. The result exceeded our expectation. Now our front entrance looks good enough to welcome a queen! I like Paul’s workers they are friendly and able. Also, Paul is one of the most organized and punctual people I have ever known. We have had a lot of problems with tradesmen in the past. It’s nice to know Paul for a change.

    Sadako – Burnaby

  • I had Citywide Sundecks replace the 28 year old Duradeck sheeting with the similar material on my sundeck. The job was completed in one and a half days to my complete satisfaction. The deck looks like new with all the joints and seams glued and heat treated to ensure maximum waterproofing. Stainless steel screws were used throughout in reinstalling the original aluminum railings and stairs to ensure longevity and improved appearances. When the job was completed the installers cleaned up the work site. I was impressed and pleased with this Citywide crew. They were professional.

    Stephen – Richmond

  • We had our hot tub and sundeck replaced this summer. Citywide Sundecks did a wonderful job of the vinyl deck. The installation was complicated by the fact that the hot tub was sunk into the deck and the glass railings had to be removed and replaced. The job was done in a timely manner with great efficiency. We truly appreciated the skill of the workmanship, the attention to detail and the concern for aesthetics.

    McBride – Coquitlam

  • Paul and his team did excellent work with attention to detail. The work was done quickly and we are very happy with the result.

    Lora – North Vancouver

  • Great service and a fair price for the work. Delivered on all their promises and even did a nice job cleaning up. I would definitely recommend them.

    R. B. – Vancouver

  • Amazing service. Friendly, prompt, really good product. The installers are wonderful and skilled, friendly. I really would recommend this company. I like the range of products they offer and they took time to explain all my options.

    A. R. – Vancouver

  • We were very surprised when we were told that they were able to start working on the project within a week of us signing our contract. We were kept updated of progress and appreciated being contacted by Paul to see how they were doing and if we had any questions. The work was completed quickly and efficiently. The fellows who did the work were friendly and cleaned up after they had finished for the day. We were very happy and have referred them to our friends.

    Courtland C. – Delta

  • Paul and his crew were hired to rebuild a terrible deck that was built last year. Citywide Sundecks isn’t the cheapest, but they did the job right and on time, and it comes with a 10 year warranty. We should have gone with hie the first time around.

    Job P. – Surrey

  • Paul and his crew did a great job of taking care of us. We had to replace a deck and deal with some water issues above and below the deck, all which was behind the stucco. This work has been completed and we are very happy. Paul and the crew kept me informed throughout. They were very easy to deal with and answered all my questions as the work progressed. All this was done at what I thought was a fair price.

    Andy Stephens. – Surrey

  • Very happy with our Duradek job.  It was installed exactly as discussed and Paul made sure that we were completely satisfied.

    Rene B. – Vancouver

  • We are very pleased with the restoration project completed by Citywide Sundecks and Railings during the summer of 2015. The beautiful new sundeck was rebuilt in a very professional manner and the installed aluminum railings were a real upgrade on our original wooden ones. We are so glad that we contracted CWS as they were terrific to deal with and they provided quality work from start to finish.

    Bruce & Loreen S. – Richmond

  • I live in Prince George and contacted Paul at Citywide Sundecks to enquire about installing Duradek at my 85-year-old mother’s house in New Westminster. Paul kept us informed every step of the way. His crew was professional and hard working. They completed the job as agreed and ahead of schedule, even throwing in a few extras for my mum at no cost! My mother was very pleased with the outcome and happy to be enjoying her new deck.

    Leanne M. – Prince George

  • We were in a rush to get our sundeck stairs repaired. Paul was very accommodating and had the stairs replaced very quickly. The quality of work was excellent! I would highly recommend Citywide Sundecks.

    Linda & Rob M. – Delta

  • A word of thanks, for the excellent work on my sundecks, stairs, and railing. Your work was done on time and within budget. I must say it’s the envy of my neighbours. They ask who did the work, and of course I tell them Citywide. The house looks great, with the new decks and stairs.

    Tony C. – Vancouver

  • We were very pleased with the deck installation performed by Citywide Sundecks.  Paul took the time to show us a recent installation he had done in our neighbourhood, which helped us to visualize how our deck would look after it was complete.  He explained how he would address deficiencies with the existing installation.  His staff were very efficient, courteous and professional.  I would recommend Citywide Sundecks.

    Stephen G. – Tsawwassen

  • I called Citywide Sundecks and Paul was at my home within two hours of my inquiry. He was professional, knowledgeable, efficient and easy to deal with. The gentleman that did the vinyl on my deck came out and completed the job in one day with no mess left behind. The whole process took less than a week from initial inquiry. I would recommend Citywide Sundecks to anyone.

    A. R. – Burnaby

  • We were very impressed with the professionalism of Citywide Sundecks. We really do enjoy our deck. and would recommend Citywide to anyone.
