An Austin TX Deck and Pergola are Products of Innovation

This project in the University Hills area of Northeast Austin is not only an aesthetic improvement – it includes some pretty special products too! These clients said, “Out with the old,” and Archadeck of Austin exclaimed, “In with the NEW!”

Like many of our Austin TX deck building projects, this family in University Hills was ready for an upgraded outdoor living space. They had an existing wood deck expanse, which had adequate room, but it had reached its usable life’s end. Archadeck of Austin designed and built a low-maintenance deck – new and improved in every facet!

If you’re looking for an Austin deck builder, trust Archadeck!

We built an expansive TimberTech AZEK® Vintage Collection deck for these clients. The addition of a deck stair across the front of the deck slightly extends beyond the original deck’s footprint. The Vintage Collection® offers beautiful wood-look finishes and includes a 50-year fade and stain warranty. This deck will maintain its beauty for decades to come, even exposed to the hot Texas sun. We also installed deck lighting for increased visibility at night.

Innovative TimberTech AZEK Multi-width Decking

What’s more, these homeowners chose to build their new deck using TimberTech AZEK’s multi-width decking boards for a truly unique design aesthetic. For this project, we used all three board width options for the decking, deck stair, and fascia. Available widths are standard, 5 ½”, narrow, 3 ½”, and wide, 7 ¼”.

Innovative Steel Pergola Design

This family longed for a space to escape the sun on their deck. Archadeck of Austin delivered with this custom steel-framed pergola. We painted the steel framing to coordinate with the deck’s finish.

What’s unique and innovative about this pergola? Well, the floating appearance was achieved using only two steel posts, deeply buried and cemented into the ground. The pergola is completely detached on three sides, held in place by only the two posts in front.

The pergola posts required three-foot deep footings, secured in place with concrete.

Another great innovation for this pergola is that the slats were created with TimberTech AZEK decking slats to match the decking. This not only gives the design a cohesive aesthetic but means the homeowners don’t have to perform annual maintenance, as they would with wood slats.
