Homewood screened porch designs by Archadeck of Birmingham!

These Homewood residents had a desire to turn their aging deck into a safe and more usable outdoor living area. Archadeck of Birmingham built them a custom screened porch with a gable roof. Floor-to-ceiling screens all the way to the top of the gable will offer the homeowners and their guest’s ultimate fresh air and light entry into the space. The finished v-joint ceiling accommodated clean installation of recessed lighting and ceiling fans. In order to attach the new porch, we removed the home’s original overhang and replaced it.

Even with our temperate Alabama climate, these homeowners will extend their hours in their new screened porch a custom gas-insert outdoor fireplace. The same ceiling fans that will help cool the porch on warm days, can be used to circulate warm air about the space on cooler days.

The grill deck’s decking is TimberTech Terrain in Silver Maple, a great choice for its heat dissipation in the hot Alabama sun. TimberTech composite decking will not only offer these homeowners a comfortable deck on which to grill, but also the ease of low maintenance, without the need to sand, stain, or seal periodically.

We created a custom railing for the entire porch and deck space with pressure-treated wood framing and posts, Deckorators pickets, and matching TimberTech composite railing top cap.

We also built custom steps from the deck to the homeowners’ sloping backyard. The stair framing was built with pressure-treated wood, and the step risers and treads were constructed of TimberTech composite decking.
