The traditional choice for deck building, wood is still a gorgeous and
sturdy choice. We use pressure treated Southern Pine for most
wood decks projects. We also offer Cedar, Redwood and even Mahogany or Teak. For
more luxurious decking projects we might build a gorgeous Ipe deck or
choose from other Brazilian hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Cumaru, Garapa
Wood decks do require regular maintenance with stain or sealant. Depending
on your property, if your deck is exposed to full sun most of the day
or is under the cover of a heavily wooded lot, you may need more or less
maintenance. The versatility in finishes allows you to choose different
stain colors each time to make your deck look brand new.
Special Deck Design Features
Deck design doesn’t end with choosing the type of decking material
you’d like to use. If you are in search of a truly custom deck with
special design features, our team of deck builders at Archadeck of Charlotte
can help you bring your vision to life.
Customizing your deck means big design decisions in staircase position
and style, railing color and type, skirting, and other custom design additions.
Add traditional lattice skirting to your elevated deck to hide the underside.
Choose a wide fanning staircase that opens to your large backyard or create
two smaller staircases on each side for easy access to multiple areas
on your property. For a unique custom design, we can even add picture
framing, parting boards, and custom inlays.
Probably the hardest choice to make will be your railings. Railing choices
are endless and can have a huge effect on the final look of your deck.
With brands such as
Fortress offering materials such as iron, aluminum, metal, cable and glass, traditional
wood railings are being chosen less frequently.

The Ultimate Charlotte Outdoor Living Spaces
Is a deck the only outdoor living space you need? Sometimes our clients
opt for additional outdoor living areas to create a multi-faceted outdoor
space. Add a stone or paver patio landing for a grill or additional dining
table. Building a patio around the pool and a screen porch that overlooks
it is a great option for watching the kids swim. We can build decks outside
an upper-level master suite for a morning coffee retreat or a spa deck
with privacy wall for your hot tub area. Whatever your outdoor living
needs, we will work with you on creating a space that meets or exceeds
your desired lifestyle.
