We Americans love our furry friends – Archadeck of Akron owner, Patrick Sluss, is among them! It is estimated that 68% of American households have pets. Recent reports state that pet owners spend a whopping 70 billion per year caring for their animals. It stands to reason that of all the things we invest in to care for our animals, building your new outdoor living space to accommodate them is an absolute must. We know that every space in and around our homes is just more enjoyable with our beloved critters by our side!

Nobody wants to put out APB an on their dog! Even with microchip technology to help us reunite with lost pets, there are so many dangers out in the great big world for them! No doubt, as you are reading this, you are thinking of how scary it would be to endure a pet’s disappearance from your back yard! Archadeck of Akron can offer you peace of mind with simple pet safety solutions to keep them right where they should be.

Perhaps you have seen this popular social media post! We can choose to equip our animals with bumper collars, or as in this case a hot dog costume, to prevent the great escape…or we could give them a space to peruse freely without the threat of escape. Lots of smells and sounds out of doors attract our would-be escape artists, and before we know it, they’re on the move! Archadeck of Akron will build your deck or porch to impede Fido’s big adventure. We can recommend customization, such as deck railings with close pickets, and latching doggy gates to keep your pampered pooch safe and secure outdoors. If your dog is a jumper, we can even install a taller deck railing to dissuade him from hurdling his way to unsafe, open spaces!

Akron screened porches are just better with pets!

Screened porches and outdoor rooms are fantastic spaces to allow our pets needed fresh air and sunshine. Dogs and cats can even enjoy the comforts of a screened porch or three-season room when it’s too chilly for us. Archadeck of Akron can custom design your porch with pet-friendly features, such as doggy and kitty doors, where they can access their own dog run or fenced backyard from your porch. How about a pet door from inside your home to your enclosed space?

We can even recommend flooring that will make clean-up easy, in case of accidents or muddy paws after a backyard romp. Tile porch flooring and synthetic deck flooring are perfect for such scenarios, as both surfaces are simply cleaned with a quick wipe of water and mild detergent.
