Professional installer Eric: a new terrace for a challenging setting in France

"In recent years, I've worked on many different projects, but one interesting challenge stands out. One of my clients wanted to expand their living space by creating an outdoor area around their house. However, the house had a finished basement, so traditional deck construction was not an option. We decided, with the client, to design an elevated deck using UPM ProFi composite boards," explains Eric, the manager of Artibois 77.

The homeowner had initially considered using a full metal structure, but Eric recommended UPM ProFi composite boards for their ease of maintenance and modern appearance. The UPM ProFi Piazza Silver Teak colour was chosen as it perfectly aligned with the project's goals.

"One of the reasons behind this decision is that I've been using UPM ProFi products for over 8 years without any issues. UPM ProFi composite boards are easy to install, have an excellent structure, and maintain their good condition over the years. The client was very pleased with the final result: the deck was exactly what they had hoped for," Eric rejoices.

Eric continues: "I have used UPM ProFi products as decking in several of my projects and in different environments, such as private homes, restaurants, and hotels. I have also recommended them to my colleagues. Continuously upholding professional standards is important, which is why I have been a Gold Installer for over 6 years. The UPM ProFi certification has helped me stay up-to-date and maintain the high quality of work."
