If anyone tells you there’s no such thing as a high-quality, budget-friendly deck, don’t believe them. If they tell you that all Archadeck decks are too expensive for your budget, don’t believe that, either. At Archadeck of Akron, we want Akron-area budget-sensitive homeowners to know we offer custom decks on a budget designed to work for you.
Archadeck’s Craftsmanship Shines Through at Any Price
Archadeck of Akron puts our best-quality work into every deck we build, regardless of price range. While a deck with all the bells and whistles will cost more than a basic wood deck, we build both with the same level of care. Archadeck’s craftsmanship and attention to detail are not characteristics we turn on or off depending on how much you’re paying for your deck. We follow the same processes and use the same checklists regardless.
If another builder quotes you a lower price, be aware that choosing their product could cost you more in the long run. Do they have design experience? Do they carry liability insurance and workers comp? Do they always meet or exceed local building codes? Do they offer warranties on workmanship and structural integrity? Archadeck of Akron meets all of these critical requirements for a deck designer and builder—regardless of the size or price of your deck.
Warranties! That’s a big deal. For more information on our warranties and “the Archadeck difference,” read our blog post, Why the Archadeck Difference Should Matter to You.
How Does Archadeck Build Custom Decks for Under $12K?
Archadeck has been designing and building decks since 1980. With forty years of design experience, the company has developed eight classic deck designs that are the building blocks of all of our deck projects. We call this series of 8 designs our Lifestyle Classics, and we can build each one of these decks for under $12,000. However, keep in mind size and site conditions could affect the final cost.
No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you! Archadeck of Akron can add a high-quality, well-built deck to your home for less than $12,000. Our Lifestyle Classics decks are all timeless designs, and they work well for nearly every home and yard. We’ve created a gallery of these decks under $12,000 so you can see which designs resonate with you.
First, the decks in our Lifestyle Classics series are pre-designed—but NOT pre-fabricated. These designs have already been drafted by the engineering and drafting team who create our architectural drawings/renderings at Archadeck headquarters. Using pre-approved designs saves time and money simply because these eight decks don’t need to be drafted from scratch. We do build them from scratch however, one board at a time.
Second, to keep these decks under $12,000, we build them with pressure-treated wood, our most affordable building material. Many homeowners prefer wood decks, and we build quite a few wooden decks every year. Budget-conscious homeowners who dream of having a new deck appreciate the fact that choosing to build with wood can keep that dream within reach.
Not Just Decks, but Custom Decks for Akron-area Homeowners
Now you know how Archadeck of Akron can build your new deck for under $12K. You also need to know that we customize our Lifestyle Classics decks to meet each client’s specific needs. What does that mean?
It means we don’t build cookie-cutter decks. Yes, these decks are pre-designed, but since every client’s home is different, we make adjustments to be sure the deck you choose fits your house. We won’t just say, “Close enough!” We don’t compromise on quality, good looks, or function. In addition, during our design consultation, you have the opportunity to request additional customization.
The elements that determine the cost of any deck include its size and the materials we use to build it. It’s possible that your desire for additional customization may take the price of your deck to more than $12,000. For example, if you have your heart set on low-maintenance composite decking, we can use a composite decking product instead of pressure-treated pine. That change in materials will increase the deck cost to more than $12,000. This composite deck, however, will still be less expensive than a composite deck that’s larger and designed from scratch. You’ll save money with one of our Lifestyle Classics regardless of what materials you choose.
We’ll be completely transparent with you when it comes to your deck cost. As we talk about customization, we’ll let you know what kinds of customization will push the cost over $12K and what customization will not. We won’t begin ordering materials and scheduling construction until both parties have signed a contract that states the cost of your deck.
