This gorgeous home overlooks Lake Travis and when the homeowners reached out to Archadeck, they were in need of an upgrade to their outdoor deck. They wanted a low-maintenance alternative that allowed them to focus on enjoying their peaceful lake oasis.
Stunning AZEK deck overlooking Lake Travis in Lago Vista.
Before Archadeck of Austin began the upgrade, we met with the homeowners. During our consultation we could see that the existing deck space was just a small area of faded wood. The deck was only four years old, but the direct sun had caused it to fade and appear much older. We began the remodel started by completely removing the existing deck and starting from scratch.
Existing deck before Archadeck of Austin began the new deck redesign.
The goal for the redesign was to extend their outdoor living space and create more curb appeal for the backside of the home. In addition, we also needed to create more outdoor storage areas, as this was a special request from the homeowner.
Archadeck of Austin takes great pride in being certified as the area’s Platinum AZEK deck builder and we relish in making outdoor living space dreams come to life – as was the case for this project. This new deck was built using pressure-treated pine for the substructure. The homeowners chose beautiful low-maintenance AZEK Harvest Collection Decking for the deck flooring, picture framing, and ribbon boards. They chose AZEK as the main material because it is a breeze to maintain and will retain its luxurious look for years to come. The deck design features dual tones of the AZEK decking in Kona and Autumn Harvest to compliment the home and make the deck stand out as a prestigious centerpiece.
AZEK’s Harvest Collection decking offers a 50 year stain and fade warranty and premium slip resistance so these homeowners don’t have to worry upon return from kayaking with damp feet.
The decking will also stay cooler underfoot on those hot Texas afternoons.
We also used Fortress Railing in the Black Sand color. The deck design used a two-toned color selection of Kona and Autumn Harvest to compliment the home and make the decking stand out as a prestigious centerpiece. Since convenient details make a huge difference in the custom effect of a deck space, Archadeck added a drink cap around the railing using the AZEK decking in Kona for an extra feature for functionality. Now the clients can enjoy their lake views with their morning cup of coffee on their one-of-a-kind custom deck.
The coup de grâce to this amazing deck addition was the custom LED deck stair tread lighting installed for evening ambiance and increased safety at night. Along with lighting was installed in the underdeck storage area since this extra storage space was an essential request by the homeowner.
