York Bridge Services™

YBC offers range of services that can assist clients in their commitment to a maximized bridge service life.

We are in the business of forming relationships of integrity by successfully supporting our clients in the design, construction, and lasting protection and maintenance of their timber structures. Decero™ Design is the start of a process that continues through construction and the culmination of finishing touches placed on your bridge by our expert finish crews. As an integral component of the longevity of your structure, our industry-unique York Bridge Services™ begin with the remobilization of our skilled teams to your site, 3-6 months post construction completion. With an initial inspection of your structure, preparation and maintenance of all components will be completed before the application of your custom York Timber Protective Systems™. This value added service ensures the longevity, low maintenance, beauty and integrity of your York Bridge.
