About Us – Paradisaic

Company History

Paradisaic is first and foremost a family run business, one that understands the joy of spending time with family after a long day, and the value of the dollar it took to get there. Formed in 1999 by Benjamin Shelley and his wife, Vanessa, they began crafting decks throughout Durham and the Kawarthas. Ben’s desire to create innovative decks where families, like his, could enjoy quality time together drove him to create Paradisaic. Since that time Ben has expanded his business to offer not only beautifully designed decks, but outdoor environments, solariums and home renovations.
