What’s better than winning an Archadeck Design Excellence Award? Winning TWO of them at the same time, of course! Archadeck of Austin was thrilled to receive two awards in Archadeck Outdoor Living’s most recent quarterly design contest. We won in the Combination Project category and in the Porch/Roof Structure category for the 2nd Quarter 2020 contest.
Our excitement is not about having big heads or bragging rights. (OK, we do like bragging rights.) What this means is we get to show you our award-winning designs. It means when you hire Archadeck of Austin to build your patio, covered porch or deck, you aren’t just hiring Austin’s premier outdoor design and build firm. Whether we’re building your outdoor kitchen or new patio and hardscapes, you’ll know you are hiring Austin’s award-winning outdoor living design and build firm.
And, who knows, maybe the project(s) we design for your home will win our next Archadeck Design Excellence Award. You can bet we intend to win many more design awards. (And these are not our first.)

In this project, we completely replaced the client’s old deck and pergola with an extensive pool deck and covered porch with living and dining areas. We used TimberTech AZEK’s capped polymer low-maintenance decking throughout. This synthetic decking provides the best moisture resistance and best slip resistance—better than composite and better than wood. These premium synthetic decking boards dry quickly, won’t splinter, and have hidden fasteners—no screws or nails that could hurt the swimmers’ tender bare feet.
The design is pleasing with diagonal decking and a contrasting color for the deck’s picture-framing and parting boards. The covered area, with a beautiful ceiling for shade, is elegantly appointed for a delightful, relaxing poolside destination. The project even features an ample under-deck storage area.
In this project, we enlarged the homeowners’ patio, added an outdoor fireplace and built a new roof over the patio extension. We applied a custom concrete overlay to the floor throughout to bring the existing and new sections of the patio together as one big outdoor room. The fireplace is beautiful with white and nicotine limestone, and we integrated the Star of Texas into the floor’s concrete overlay in front of the hearth. Do you love it?
