Isn’t it great when you wish for something and it comes true?
And isn’t it even better when what you get far exceeds your expectations of that wish? This North Shelby County AL porch builder definitely thinks so.
Such is the case for this Indian Springs Village family with this outdoor living masterpiece structure designed and built by Archadeck of Birmingham.
Deck And Screened Porch Combination Spaces Like This Can Be Yours With Archadeck
Before, this Indian Springs Village family enjoyed their backyard on an existing pressure treated wooden deck that was only 12-feet out.
And when you think about it, 12-feet isn’t really enough room for a wide range of outdoor living activities and most certainly not enough room for entertaining friends, family, and neighbors.
The family requested that we provide them with more room – much more room – than they currently had. Luckily for them, they contacted the right custom screened porch builder.
Just as important as more size was their desire to have shade, protecting them from sunshine when they didn’t want to bask in it, and inclement weather, that previously forced them to head back indoors.
Grow Big Or Go Home With Archadeck, The Finest Screened Porch Builder
To give them the larger, more luxurious space they were longing for, we started by expanding the footprint of the deck.
Next order of this transformation business was adding a roofline, screened porch, and subsequently a private, protected area within this combination space.
As for the materials that created this haven, we once again selected TimberTech Pro Reserve Decking in Antique Leather. By now, it’s obvious that when it comes to low maintenance, carefree outdoor living, TimberTech is our go-to choice in the greater Birmingham area.
TimberTech Looks Like Wood, But It So Far Superior
When it comes to composite decking materials, TimberTech is a true standout.
Its combination of real wood looks and low-maintenance living makes it best of class.
The TimberTech PRO decking material we selected boasts premium style and quality. Exceptionally strong and reliable in every aspect imaginable, it is engineered to endure virtually anything and everything that comes its way.
And as for longevity, it comes with a 30-year limited fade and stain warranty to boot.
For design consistency as well as high performance, we used the TimberTech product for the decking on the deck as well as for the flooring in the screened porch.
Cedar Is An Excellent Choice To Embellish Outdoor Structures
Not to take anything away from TimberTech, but the pièce de résistance is cedar. The inspiration for this actually came from inside our client’s home, where cedar beams are prominently used in their living room interior.
The stunning rich look of this treasured wood was incorporated in as many places by feasible within this new outdoor living space.
We featured it on the rails within the screened porch, the headers, the posts and on the exposed rafter ceiling within the porch.
It is such an interesting and exquisite wood that we decided to celebrate it in as many areas that made logistical and design sense.
Cedar, with its light weight, is frequently used for many outdoor wood-based structural components as it resists insects, rot, and weather elements –specifically rain, sleet, and snow.
Great Finishing Touches For Your Outdoor Living Spaces
For the deck railing we used pressure-treated pine with black aluminum balusters. The contrast between the two colorways adds a distinctive border and frames this outdoor oasis beautifully.
For architectural flair, the roofline matches the pitch of the home, as we extended it out which accounts for the dramatic height.
To provide comfort from the heat while in the space, we installed two ceiling fans as well.
