Columbia Deck and Custom Pergola Will Provide Endless Enjoyment

Here at Archadeck of Central SC, we know your outdoor living space is more than just a space. It’s an area where you gather with family and friends to create cherished memories. It serves as your go-to spot for relaxation, too. Your outdoor living space improves the value of your home and the quality of your life. Our recent deck addition in Columbia, SC, is proof that an outdoor living space is more than just a space and a deck is more than just a deck.

Custom deck with railing and stairs

When we met with these homeowners for their design consultation, they were in the market for an outdoor living space that didn’t require a great deal of maintenance. The space also needed to look the part with design features that would make it stand out from the typical deck. They wanted a space that would make outdoor grilling and dining a breeze. Archadeck was able to deliver everything they craved in this custom low-maintenance deck with all the bells and whistles.

The deck was custom-designed to allow for easy access into the back of the home, a prime consideration for outdoor entertaining and easy traffic flow. We used super low-maintenance TimberTech decking.

Deck railing detail

The deck railing was built using pressure-treated wood with aluminum balusters and topped off with a smooth TimberTech rail cap. The composite cap will prevent splintering over time, providing a comfortable area for hands to grasp for many years to come.

Archadeck of Central SC used picture framing on the edges of the new deck in a lighter shade of the same low-maintenance TimberTech composite decking. We used the picture framing technique again to highlight the octagonal portion of the deck, adding pizazz where the homeowners placed their outdoor dining table.

We took the dynamic design of the new deck a step further by adding a bump out area just for the homeowners’ grill. The area eliminates the problem of a grill impeding the traffic flow around the deck.

Last but certainly not least, we added a custom pergola above the door where you step out from the home’s interior onto the deck. Not only does the pergola add a unique vertical element to the total deck design, it also provides an element of shade protection for added comfort. The pergola is built from wood painted to match the deck.
