An Underperforming Eatonton GA Deck Becomes an Overachiever

These Eatonton homeowners were looking for better use of their outdoor spaces and were faced with a couple of issues with their current deck. Archadeck of Central Georgia brought thoughtful solutions to their lackluster outdoor living situation.

The first issue was that their existing wood deck was too small. We tore down the deck, and not only replaced it, but extended it out by eight feet, giving them more room to move and better coverage of the patio beneath. What’s more, these clients kept the old deck after it was torn down, so they can re-purpose the reclaimed materials on another project on their property!

The second issue these Eatonton deck clients had was a very common one that is experienced by homeowners with raised decks – too much water getting to the spaces below! Originally, the elevated deck didn’t cover as much of the patio beneath, and the uncovered portion was left totally open to the elements. Also, the part of the patio that was covered by the existing deck still took on water during rain. What to do?

Archadeck of Central GA installed Dexedry® underdeck weatherproofing. This innovative solution is made of recycled materials, and is an economical means of keeping the spaces under your deck nice and dry, whether you have a patio or just a walk-out space. Part of the deck extension includes a slope for drainage of the flange gutters of this underdecking system, which are placed above the deck floor joists and between decking boards.

This Central GA deck called for low-maintenance solutions

We installed this deck totally anew with low-maintenance composite decking by Deckorators, along with low-maintenance deck railings by Fortress Railing. Both of these products are constructed to last for many years with minimal maintenance. No sanding, painting, or staining – ever. Essentially a wipe-down or spray off periodically will keep these low-maintenance deck products looking great!
