A truly custom deck in the North Hills of Pittsburgh

At first glance, this deck is simply stunning but there is nothing simple about the design or construction of this deck built in the North Hills of Pittsburgh.

Deck and seating areas

This is a project that was done in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. The deck was TimberTech Floorizan in Teak with a Veka white vinyl rail with a Teak deck board top rail and white Deckorator pickets.

Archadeck uses top-of-the-line materials and is a national partner with many world-class materials companies including TimberTech – a premier low-maintenance composite wood product company. The color of this decking board is in Teak. TimberTech has a great color visualizer on their site where you can review colors to envision and prepare for your decking project.

There are several things that make Archadeck unique. First and foremost, what makes Archadeck the best builder for your outdoor projects is the design, artistry and building integrity of everything built by Archadeck.

Deck and seating areas

This process starts with understanding the customer’s outdoor living goals. This customer was looking for something unique where he could entertain or just relax. A multi-level deck is an excellent solution for this objective. In the upper left, you’ll see an octagonal seating area for reading, relaxing or stealing an afternoon nap. With the additional level, this design affords the family space to eat, sit, and entertain while having this somewhat private individual place.

You’ll notice that this deck spans the entire back of the home. This was also the customer’s desire. You’ll see from this aerial view that this full-span deck affords multiple individual gathering areas – perfect for the children playing in one area and the adults relaxing in another area.

The next thing that defines Archadeck as a custom outdoor builder is the attention to small details. You will notice that the bench compliments the bayed doorway of the home. The decking in that portion is horizontal while the remainder of the main deck is diagonal. These small details would never be architected or achieved by companies that don’t focus exclusively on building custom outdoor living spaces.

The railing on this deck is made of a product called Veka. Vinyl railing affords a couple benefits – most importantly durability and ease of maintenance.

The final detail of this project is the lattice work at the base of the deck. When looking at deck contractors and their pictures, notice how they finish their work. Your custom deck should be completely finished down to the ground.
