Our most recent deck addition took Archadeck of Central GA to the tranquil Weatherford neighborhood in Monroe County, GA. Originally, this project was to involve expanding on the existing footprint of the homeowner’s backyard deck to give them more space. In addition, we were to also redeck the entire space including the new planned deck expansion to complete the project, along with new railing.

That was the initial project plan, but that isn’t exactly what happened.
As with any outdoor living project, especially those built with wood, there is only so much you can see from an observational perspective. Rot is often masked under the layers of the framework within a deck’s substructure. It is not until you are into the project, peeling back those layers, that issues like rot and decay become apparent. This was the case on this project as removal of the decking boards revealed extensive rot underneath as no flashing was installed when the deck was originally constructed. This caused the entire band to rot.
One step forward and two steps back.
Archadeck of Central GA saved the day with the discovery of the degradation, as time passed, further decay would have spread to the area under the homeowner’s kitchen breakfast nook. Despite the unanticipated course the project took, it was good we found it when we did and were able to address it. Once we removed the entire existing deck, we made the necessary amendments to ensure the new structure was solid and the home was protected from additional issues.
A new deck in Weatherford!
Once the structural amendments and repairs were made, we set to work building their new and larger deck. The deck was built from pressure-treated pine and features a low-maintenance Fiberon rail in white. The larger footprint boasts plenty of room for outdoor furniture and accessories.

In addition to the new deck and railing, Archadeck of Central GA also designed an area under the deck for lawn and garden storage. The nifty space keeps items like wheelbarrows and shovels out of sight — plus it features a trendy barn door design, too!
