If your heart is telling you that you’d prefer a smaller scale outdoor living space, then by George, it’s time to stop,and listen. Very often we work with homeowners who want to go smaller rather than bigger when it comes to their outdoor living space. As the premier Birmingham-area deck and porch builder, Archadeck of Birmingham will fully support you in this decision.
You are probably familiar with the old saying bigger is better, right? As Americans, we generally assume this old saying rings true — hence our affinity for bigger cars, houses and yes, super size fries. But the old saying of bigger is better is not the case for everyone. The reasoning behind building bigger decks and outdoor living spaces is simple. It is because homeowners crave a transference of the comforts and function they have in their interior living space, outdoors. However, if the scale of the project is not in proportion with the home it is being used on, or alongside, then it certainly doesn’t make sense — after all, it just wouldn’t make sense to build a 1200 foot deck onto a 1200 foot home!
As a homeowner looking for a custom outdoor living design and build company, perusing our website photo galleries may make you feel like we only build BIG outdoor living spaces. As the economy has improved over the last few years, building projects have generally increased in size, scope, and level of specialization, including the introduction of many new amenities and materials. Decking, porch materials, hardscapes and electrical components are just a few of the areas that have all changed dramatically in the last decade. With this in mind, building a BIGGER outdoor structure is not always the best option for many Birmingham homeowners. Outdoor living structures should compliment the scale and proportion of your home, lifestyle needs and budget.
Here at Archadeck of Birmingham. we don’t just build, we design and build outdoor living spaces. To design, we first listen to you, the homeowner, as you describe the space you have in mind. We will never try to talk you into something bigger or fancier than you want or need. On the other end of the spectrum, if you are only seeking a repair for your deck, porch or outdoor living structure, Archaeck is not a repair company.
Archadeck of Birmingham pours the same level of expertise and level of specialization into every project we build — both large and small. Whether it is a singular traditional pressure-treated wooden deck, cedar pergola or a full-on outdoor living combination space, we will professionally design and build the Birmingham-area outdoor living space you’ve always wanted.
