HGTV Canada Declares Deck Wars
- Brand New Canadian Series Showcases the Battle for Ultimate Deck Supremacy Premiering July 7 at 10pm ET/PT
Think you’ve got the best backyard on the block? Think again. Beginning Thursday, July 7 at 10pm ET/PT, brand new Canadian original series Deck Wars will bring together weekend deck enthusiasts in a construction challenge that will test the limits of outdoor design. Hosted by HGTV Canada’s new rock star construction guru, Paul Lafrance (Decked Out), this challenge has competitors constructing full decks in a pressure cooker of time, expectations and skill – putting it all on the line to win a very large trophy, and eternal bragging rights.
The field of battle for Deck Wars is an indoor warehouse, with all materials and tools awaiting the arrival of the warriors. Unlike most backyard deck constructions, you won’t find any beer or buddies here. Instead, it’s a fast-paced construction challenge that results in competitors resorting to distraction tactics, name-calling, dueling…and even dance-offs. Aided by the cast of characters from Decked Out, and guided along the way by Paul himself, teams must use every moment wisely to assert their deck dexterity. They will be judged by Paul along with two other rotating HGTV personalities, including Bryan Baeumler (Disaster DIY), Scott McGillivray (Income Property), and Damon Bennett (Holmes Inspection). Only one team is entitled to personal glory and glowing pride in the end, when they are named the winner of Deck Wars.
