Liv Outdoor – Brands We Trust

Liv Outdoor. The details can take a deck from nice to stunning, so today we’re going to talk about some of our favourite “deckcessories” for getting the job done.

On almost all of our “Decked Out and “Disaster Decks” projects, you’ve seen our crew use hidden deck clips that minimize the need for unsightly screws. Tiger Claw fasteners are some of the best, and the handy clip gun makes decking a breeze to boot. When we do use screws, we want them to be as hidden as possible. With more than a dozen colour coating options available, you’ll be sure to find a Starborn screw to fit your material.

Exotic materials can also add that extra ‘zing’ to your deck’s look and feel, like bamboo accents or exotic hardwoods. Liv Outdoor is a leading importer of hardwood decking, and Paul has created amazing decks using their gorgeous rich red balau. To retain its rich colour, exotic hardwood needs to be treated every year or two, or it can be allowed to fade to a cool silver. With a little extra care and maintenance, exotic hardwood will last a lifetime.

Got a tall deck? Liv Outdoor has you covered with railings, too, in a variety of systems. Want it customized? No problem – you can pick and choose between a variety of picket styles, complete railing systems, and even different approaches to the always ultra-slick glass railings. For the ultimate in unobstructed view, we especially love the Invisirail system. The strong tempered glass is designed with safety in mind and can install on any rail post you build. For a truly invisible look, we like to use the matching Invisiposts, which are the smallest profile rail post on the market today.

See you next week for another spotlight in our series! In the meantime, check out some cool projects featuring Liv Outdoor products.
