Outdoor living aficionados already know the benefits a deck OR screened porch provide. A deck is the Mother of all open-air outdoor living structures as it provides an area to grill, entertain, relax, and become one with nature. A screened porch, on the other hand, provides many of the same benefits while keeping pests and inclement weather at bay. Many Hoover, AL, homeowners look to Archadeck of Birmingham to build either a deck or screened porch to their home. However, these Lake Crest residents decided they wanted both — and Archadeck was more than happy to oblige!
Deck and Screened Porch Combinations — the Ultimate Anything Goes Outdoor Living Space!
When we initially met with these Lake Crest homeowners they had an existing deck, however, the deck they had did not provide the shade they craved to escape the hot afternoon sun, nor did it contain the low-maintenance qualities they were looking for. Archadeck of Birmingham designed and built an outdoor living combination space that delivered all these qualities, and more!
Open and airy gable-roofed screened porch

The space we built includes a gable roof screened porch with an open gable end. Not only does the open gable end design add a ton of charm to the aesthetics of the porch, but it also provides more ventilation which aids in keeping the porch cool and comfortable. The interior of the porch is finished with a pressure-treated wooden floor which we installed on a diagonal for added interest and a pressure treated wooden rail. We installed aluminum black aluminum balusters to this area as well, to match those used on the deck.
Low-maintenance TimberTech deck
The convenient grill deck is located right off the screened porch. We finished this area using all low-maintenance materials including TimberTech Pro Legacy decking and black aluminum balusters. The Legacy collection is capped on all four sides, even down to the grooves. This provides total immunity against moisture, which is a plus in this low-to-grade deck design.
Archadeck of Birmingham even installed a deck gate as part of the deck design. When our clients have pets and/or small children that utilize a deck space, we often recommend the addition of a gate for safety, security and peace of mind.
These Lake Crest homeowners are just elated with their new outdoor living space. The element they love the most is the versatility it provides.
