Sometimes old friends fall upon hard times and need a little help. Such is the case with this project which had an aged, elevated wooden deck that needed repair.

Redecking And Building Better With TimberTech
After maintaining their old pressure treated wood deck for years, our clients wanted a new deck solution that would not require constant attention with sanding, power washing, and staining year after year.
We recommended TimberTech Pro Reserve decking in Antique Leather.
TimberTech decking is a composite material made of wood particles and high-density polyethylene, with added compounds to resist rot, mold, and scratching. If you didn’t know better, you’d swear it was wood.
The Reserve Collection of TimberTech Pro makes a bold style statement and adds character and value to your outdoor living space with the vivid and elegant blend of colors of the PRO Reserve Collection. Inspired by reclaimed wood, the heavy wire-brushed, low-gloss finish showcases the classic cathedral wood grain pattern on these resilient boards..
No Ring Around The Rosy This Time Around
When the original pressure treated wood deck was built, the homeowners were mindful of a long-standing tree that was the focus point of their backyard.
They had such reverence for its majesty, shade, and beauty that they integrated the tree into the design of the deck. This time, our design team thought it best not to repeat that schematic, but to work around it, as incorporating the tree into the design would most likely cause issues in years to come as the tree further matured and grew.
A New Approach For Deck Stairs
In reimagining the outdoor living space, we also changed the stair design on the new deck by adding a landing and a descent design, allowing it to be more graceful and more effective than the prior stair configuration which simply went straight down.
At the top of the new staircase, we added a security gate to ensure the safety of pets and small children when they were visiting and playing on the elevated structure.
Speaking of ensuring safety, this Birmingham area deck expert enclosed the entire new deck with our standard rail, which is a pressure-treated wooden rail with aluminum balusters and a matching composite rail cap.
When It’s Time For That Long Awaited Backyard Deck Home Improvement, Only One Deck Builder Is Worthy Of The Challenge
Decks are the end all and be all of all the outdoor living structures Archadeck of Birmingham builds. If your deck is working alone as your primary outdoor living room, it takes on quite a lot of responsibility. It provides you with an ultra-convenient place where you can just step outside your door, sit in a comfortable chair, and bask in nature’s glory.
When the sun goes down, lie back in your deck lounge chair and get lost in the stars. Take it from Birmingham’s premier deck builder, your new deck will become your “outside living and dining room” — and probably your favorite room of the house.
