A huge advantage to working with Archadeck of Akron is our versatility and wide range of expertise, as this Uniontown, OH, homeowner discovered recently. While some companies build hardscapes and others build decks, Archadeck of Akron can do it all – and extremely well. You don’t sacrifice an ounce of builder know-how or competence when you work with us, no matter what kind of outdoor living structure you want!
Not Sure What Outdoor Living Space to Build?
If you’re having trouble deciding whether to add a deck, screened porch, or patio to your home, you don’t need to call three different companies to quote the job. Archadeck of Akron has quite a bit of experience designing and building all of these structures. We can give you an accurate quote on any of them. We can also evaluate your property and recommend which structure would work best for your setting if you’re undecided. This alone sets us apart from the other deck builders and hardscape installers in the Akron, Uniontown, and Green, OH areas.
Most homeowners calling Archadeck of Akron for a free design consultation know what they want. Recently this homeowner in the Green area of Uniontown, OH, called us to replace her patio steps and add a railing for stability. Since she hired a hardscape company to do the original project she ended up with a hardscape step that had some tall steps. We were in complete agreement that adding a railing to her patio steps would increase her safety there.
We saw why she wanted to replace those steps! They were made of pavers matching her patio, and you could say they were “pretty.” But they weren’t safe or practical. The two steps fanned out in a half-moon shape, and the top step was too small. A step that size and shape provides limited footing, forcing anyone coming in or out of the home to be very careful.
Given the half-moon design, it wasn’t possible to make the top step larger without making the bottom step larger, too. There wasn’t sufficient space for a larger, rounded design. As we considered the options, we recommended steps made of decking materials rather than pavers or stone. A patio company wouldn’t have been versatile enough to consider this possibility.
Beautiful TimberTech Steps for Safety and Stability!
While Archadeck of Akron is a deck and hardscape builder, we didn’t recommend a deck or a hardscape for this project. The homeowner didn’t need a deck. What she needed was a landing and a set of uniform steps, wider than the ones she had, with a sturdy railing. We also went with 4 steps instead of 3 to shorten the height of the steps some for added safety. The perfect solution was TimberTech low-maintenance composite decking for the steps, and a low-maintenance railing, too.
The client selected TimberTech PRO decking from their Terrain Collection in the Brown Oak color. This deep, rich color is a perfect contrast to her home’s light siding. For the stair risers and railing she chose white, so the project ties in visually with the home’s white trim. By choosing low-maintenance materials, the homeowner will never need to worry about the steps and railing becoming weathered. TimberTech PRO Terrain decking is capped on all four sides to resist fading, moisture, insect damage, and scratches.
