In Praise Of Birmingham Backyard And Side Decks – By Archadeck, Of Course

This Birmingham expert deck designer and builder knows full well that decks are the workhorses of all the outdoor living structures Archadeck of Birmingham builds.

If your deck is working alone, it takes on quite a lot of responsibility! It provides you with an ultra-convenient place where you can just step outside your door, sink into a comfortable chair and bask in nature’s glory.

On pleasant mornings, you can savor your coffee, tea or super-healthy breakfast smoothie out on the deck. Lunch on your Birmingham deck provides a break from the hectic activities of the day. In the evening, you’re invited to settle down to catch up on the day’s news with your digital phone or tablet, or curl up with a good book. When you place your grill on the deck, no one is going to want to eat dinner indoors any longer! Then, when the sun goes down, lie back in your deck lounge chair and get lost in the stars. Take it from the Birmingham premier deck builder, your new deck will become your “outside living and dining room” — and probably your favorite room of the house.

Custom Porch Design And Construction Catering To Discerning Homeowner Clients Throughout Birmingham

When it comes to Birmingham porch perfection, we are so very lucky in the South because not only do we have porches almost everywhere, we love and respect our porches.

We all understand the importance of a well-designed and built functional porch, and many folks here would agree that every Birmingham area home needs at least one porch.

Why? Many reasons.

A custom porch addition adds beauty, enjoyment, curb appeal and value to your home. As your Birmingham porch builder, Archadeck of Birmingham is right there with you, every step of the way. We consider it our professional duty to bring porches to all who desire them.

What Kinds Of Porches Does Archadeck Of Birmingham Custom Design And Build?

That’s a great question, my friends.

There are a few different kinds of porches, depending on how you want to categorize them. The most popular porch (especially here in the summer) is a screened porch. It protects us from flying pests as well as from rain and the sun’s wilting, burning UV rays.

A screened porch with a ceiling fan sits just this side of heaven. As your thoughtful Birmingham porch builder, we usually include electrical wiring in any new back porch designs because some day, someone may want a ceiling fan.

Right up there with screened porches are covered porches. You could think of these as screened porches without the screens. Covered porches are also called open porches because they aren’t enclosed.

With open porch designs, you’re protected from rain and sun, but you’re open to all the nature your yard has to offer. And you can still have a ceiling fan, not to mention a couple of light fixtures, because most assuredly you’ll want to read a book sitting on that covered porch at night. Archadeck, your Birmingham porch builder, understands how important that is.

We can also categorize porches another way: front porches and back porches. Front porches are usually open porches, and they tend to be more formal. You could think of them as “matching” the front room of the house, which is likely a formal living room. Meanwhile, the back porch is where people can sprawl out with a board game or a jigsaw puzzle or a puppy or a grandchild and not worry about how they look to neighbors passing by. It’s the back porch that’s usually screened, and the best homes have a deck or patio leading out from that screened back porch. Covered porches and decks also go together exceptionally well.

Speaking of decks, you should also know that if you currently enjoy a deck that is in need of an upgrade, as long as it is structurally sound, our Archadeck redecking service could be just the ticket to greater outdoor living luxury and functionality.

Furthermore, we can upgrade your deck and porch to a screened porch or 3-season room, customized to give you the features and leisure conveniences you are looking for.
