Paul Lafrance is a genial guy. Not only did he meet me extra early in the morning to do this interview, he was charming, too. Paul, whom you all know from the hit new show Decked Out, is the host and judge of a new deck-related show, Deck Wars, which premieres this Thursday at 10pm ET.
Paul with the what all the teams want: the winner's trophy
The four-part series features teams of "Weekend Warriors" building decks according to a theme, with help from Paul's crew. Watch the video below to learn more about the show and to find out which "special HGTV Canada friends" will make an appearance.
Coming next week: more from Paul as he shares his tips on building a deck at home. Also, you can watch Deck Wars online!
