Who Can Design A Deck For Me?

If you’re fortunate enough to live in the greater Akron, Ohio area, the answer can be summed up in just three words: Archadeck Outdoor Living.

Unlike area deck builders who simply build a standard, cookie cutter deck, with no design, no forethought on how the customer wishes to use it, and no consideration of the family’s desires or needs, Archadeck is different.

Simply put, we call our differentiator “The Archadeck Difference.”

Unlike non-professional folks who build a formula deck design, Archadeck exceeds expectations, delivers value and guarantees your outdoor living project will be right.

Do I Need An Architect To Draw Plans For A Deck?

Yes, and with Archadeck, you get one as part of your project plan at no extra cost.

For the initial project design, we listen to your description of what you want in your new deck. The uses you have in mind. The functionality you’re wishing for. And how those wishes may evolve over time.

We then offer suggestions based on our 43 years of deck building expertise, discarding those that don’t feel right for you and incorporating those that do. The best designs are usually the product of collaboration between the client and the designer.

We then generate professional architectural drawings to show you our design recommendations.

How To Hire A Deck Designer

Don’t rush into making an impulsive decision. Remember to take your time during this process, as finding the right deck designer can make a big difference in the outcome of your project. Good communication and a clear understanding of your needs are a critical key to a successful collaboration.

1. First, figure out what you want in a deck. Consider the size, style, materials, and any specific features you desire. This will help you communicate your needs to the designer.

2. Decide how much you're willing to spend on the deck project. This will help you and the designer align your expectations.

3. Research potential deck designers by asking for recommendations from friends, family, or neighbors who have had decks designed. You can also search online for deck designers in your area or check local home improvement stores for referrals.

4. Before making your final selection, check into the qualifications and experience of potential designers. They should have a portfolio of past projects and potentially certifications related to deck design.

5. Contact a few designers to discuss your project. Ask about their experience, design process, and if they have references. Make sure they understand your needs and can work within your budget.

6. Ask to see their previous deck design work. This will give you a sense of their style and quality of work.

7. Talk to their deck customers. Contact their past clients to get feedback on their work, communication, and reliability.

8. Know what you will be paying for. Once you've selected a deck designer, review the contract carefully. Make sure it includes all the project details, costs, timelines, and payment terms.
