Townhome living has many practical advantages. But when it comes to designing outdoor living spaces for that desired home improvement, space and lot line limitations may prove to be challenging.
That’s where the deck design experts at Archadeck of Birmingham can be a huge help. Locally owned and operated by chief outdoor living design consultants, Derek and Carissa Crews, their expert deck building design and construction team can bring added value to your townhome outdoor living upgrade in multiple ways.
Wooden Decks Are A Solid, Classic, Timeless Choice For A New Deck, A Rebuild Or A Redeck
This Mountain Brook AL townhome deck rebuild used the very same footprint of the previous deck. With the picturesque backyard lot line, using pressure-treated lumber seemed like the instinctive choice for the new deck material as opposed to a synthetic PVC and composite decking product.
We especially love the way the richly intricate natural grain of the wood complements this townhome’s exterior, as well as the greenspace beyond it. And by using pressure-treated wood, the homeowners will enjoy many benefits.
1. Durability: Pressure-treated wood is treated with preservative chemicals that penetrate the wood which makes the deck more resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage, which will prolong the life of the townhome deck.
3. Affordability: Pressure-treated wood is generally more affordable than other decking materials like cedar or composite decking, which can make it an attractive option for those on a budget.
4. Availability: Pressure-treated wood is widely available at most lumberyards and home improvement stores, making it easier to find even during prime outdoor living space building seasons.
5. Versatility: Pressure-treated wood can be easily cut, shaped, and stained to match your desired look and style for your deck.
Special Townhome Deck Enhancements Make A Big Difference
Unlike building a deck for a larger family home on a generously-sized lot, building a deck – or refurbishing one for a townhome – takes special considerations.
The objective is to create a custom design plan that allows for easy access, good navigation, and room for multi-functional uses and outdoor furniture arrangements.
Since townhomes typically are connected to neighboring units, how to enjoy your deck space with privacy can be a challenge. But not for Archadeck. Our team added a pressure-treated railing and a privacy screen to the end of this deck to create an intimate space that can be enjoyed in private.
Building Better Mountain Brook Backyards
Decks are the workhorses of all the outdoor living structures Archadeck of Birmingham builds. If your deck is an outdoor living space onto itself, 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.
On pleasant mornings, you can enjoy your coffee, tea or super-healthy breakfast smoothie out there. Come lunchtime, the deck provides a break from the hectic activities of the day. In the evening, settle down to catch up on the day’s news with your tablet, or curl up with a good book.
Then, when the sun goes down, lie back in your deck lounge chair and get lost in the stars. Take it from one of Mountain Brook’s premier deck builders, your new deck will become your “outside living and dining room” — and probably your favorite room of the house.
