Decks and open porches are great for outdoor living leisure, entertaining, and grilling – until the sun gets hotter and beats down on you.
And as you most likely know by now, when you are forced to go back into the house because of the suns strong rays, temporary solutions are fine for a quick fix – but don’t you think a permanent shade cover solution would be better?
We sure do.
You would be amazed at how many of our Birmingham deck and open porch clients come to that realization and contact us yet again to add a permanent shade structure for comfort, convenience, and the greater functionality of their open air outdoor space.
Archadeck Has You Covered With Creative Permanent Shade Structures
Archadeck of Birmingham has turned pergola design and construction into an artform. Their benefits are seemingly endless:
• A pergola adds style and flair as an outdoor design element.
• A pergola adds vertical interest by contrasting the horizontal lines of a deck.
• A pergola can serve as a shade structure, depending on how it is designed.
• A pergola can help anchor – or frame – a deck, patio, or outdoor
• A pergola can add privacy and intimacy to any open-air surface.
• A pergola can serve as a sturdy structure from which to hang a swing – or even a bed swing!
• A pergola can provide the perfect setting for built-in seating on a deck.
Outdoor Living Areas For Shade And Comfort
If you prefer wood, we will typically recommend using Cedar because it performs so well outdoors – in all kinds of weather. Thanks to its natural resistance to water, bugs and decay, Cedarcan withstand almost any pests and weather conditions, and compared to many other types of materials, it is far more likely to retain its original appearance and vibrant colors – making it a terrific long term home improvement investment.
If you prefer an Earth-friendly alternative, TimberTech AZEK building materials are also an excellent choice. Strong, sturdy, maintenance-free, with textures that look and feel like wood, there are an abundance of color choices to choose from.
Birmingham Covered Porch Conversions For Outdoor Living Area Shade And Comfort
Another great backyard shade solution is to have Archadeck of Birmingham convert your uncovered deck or porch into a screened and covered one.
Our clients love how transforming open outdoor living spaces into enclosed and covered ones offers the best of both worlds.
In doing so, it provides beautiful open sight lines to their backyard area, landscape, and gardens while having the protection overhead from sun, rain, and unexpected outdoor weather elements.
Birmingham 3-Season Room Conversions For Outdoor Living Area Shade And Comfort
The same conveniences, practicality and functionality can also be yours with a 3-season room conversion – another of our upgrade specialties.
Our master craftspeople will design an enclosed, protected space that still respects your great outdoors – giving you the option to venture out of the space when desired, with easy access back inside.
A wonderful idea for a 3-season room combination space transformation is with EZE-Breeze. Outdoor living room “walls” were created here using vinyl windows and an aluminum frame.
