Archadeck of Central Iowa - Coronavirus Statement

Published March 18th, 2020.
Updated April 13th, 2020.
The following is still applicable, but click here for our June, 2020 perspective on the coronavirus situation.

The coronavirus and COVID-19 have truly put us all in unchartered times. But, we’re an adaptable society and we’re adapting right alongside you as we navigate social distancing, sheltering in place, washing hands, face masks, distance learning. curbside food (and cocktails!) pickup and a myriad of other new situations we find ourselves in due to coronavirus. Keep up the good work – the health and well-being of our communities is dependent on the sacrifices we are all making for the long-term good.

We are continuing to stay in tune with the directives of federal and state authorities and we also continue to get guidance from our franchisor, Outdoor Living Brands, in Richmond, VA.; their support and encouragement are but one of the many factors that make our franchise system a success. We will adapt as conditions and directives change, but our current state and approach to our business is as follows:

  • We remain open for business…at a distance, socially and medically.
    • We are a small business; no worries with the 10 person limit – either in our Urbandale office or with our crews in your backyard.
    • We’re emphasizing virtual consultations, preceded by “drive-by” site assessments; in-person consultations as appropriate.
    • Once it makes sense to proceed to design, those reviews and proposals can also be done virtually; in-person as appropriate.
    • Zoom has become our friend as much as yours!
    • Contact us to learn more about our current service offerings via phone at (515) 203-8734, e-mail at or via the “how can we help”box at right.
    • Stay tuned here for updated information.

  • We are an outdoor living business…outside.
    • Outside has not been cancelled.
    • The health benefits of being outside …outdoors…are immense, at all times.
    • Archadeck of Central Iowa exists to have nice places to be outside when you’re home. Decks, porches, patios and all the amenities that make it home, outside. Maybe now, those spaces are more important than ever. The perfect place to socially distance and stay home – outdoors. Even (working) at home you can still get away. Let us show you how!
    • Team Archadeck exists to promote active and healthy outdoor living…at home, on the trails, in the parks, wherever the sun and stars shine. Maybe now, going outside and playing is more important than ever. Just keep keeping your distance for awhile…longer.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and support.
