UPM ProFi Deck 150: A Timeless Choice for Durability and Elegance

In the picturesque landscape surrounding Lake Saimaa, a beautifully refurbished house stands as a testament to both the allure of history and the pursuit of modern comforts. As the owners Jenni and Mauricio, embarked on the task of creating a terrace that seamlessly blended with the charm of the original structure, they sought a decking material that would withstand the test of time while exuding elegance. After meticulous research and careful consideration, their quest led them to the UPM ProFi decking, a choice that perfectly aligned with their vision for a durable and high-quality terrace.

The journey to finding UPM ProFi began at the local distributors store in Lappeenranta, where the owners were introduced to the product's exceptional qualities. Intrigued by its durability and aesthetic appeal, they reached out to the UPM ProFi team. The team’s guidance proved instrumental as they assisted them in calculating the required quantities based on their hand-drawn plans. Despite the evolving nature of their project, unwavering patience and assistance played a pivotal role, culminating in a seamless order placement process through the distributor.

Aesthetic consistency and durability were paramount considerations for the owners, who sought a decking solution that would create a unified look across their various terrace areas, steps, and ramps. With this in mind, they opted for a combination of UPM ProFi Deck 150 boards in both 4 and 5-meter lengths. This deliberate choice eliminated the need for multiple dividing lines, resulting in a visually appealing and harmonious terrace design. To further enhance both style and protection, the owners wisely incorporated the rail-step solution, ensuring a slick appearance while safeguarding the edges and steps. The color of choice, Stone Grey, perfectly complemented the natural beauty of the surroundings, adding a touch of timeless elegance.


For the owners, the terrace was designed to be a haven where they could appreciate the breathtaking surroundings throughout the year. Each morning, as the sun baths the trees in a golden hue and the gentle breeze carries the melody of birdsong, they savor the tranquility with a steaming cup of coffee in hand. The terrace becomes a sanctuary, allowing them to connect with nature and immerse themselves in the serenity of their lakeside retreat.

The UPM ProFi terrace quickly became an integral part of the owners' daily lives, accommodating a wide array of activities. From delightful outdoor dining experiences to leisurely afternoons spent lounging in the sun, the terrace provides the perfect setting for relaxation and enjoyment. Inspired by their children's enthusiasm, the family initiated a tradition of hosting family games competitions on the terrace, creating cherished memories.

Given the unique landscape surrounding their house, the owners recognised the importance of professional installation to ensure a flawless end-result. They entrusted the project to Omar, a skilled local carpenter renowned for his expertise in working with challenging terrains. Omar's meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail transformed the undulating landscape into a masterpiece, showcasing the seamless integration of the UPM ProFi decking. The owners were delighted with the outcome and wholeheartedly recommend Omar to anyone seeking to build a large terrace in Finland, confident in his ability to surpass expectations.
