Deck and patio built on the back of a house

Archadeck is a custom design-and-build company. Our deck designers have designed thousands of decks throughout the Chicagoland area. When you work with one of our Design Consultants, they will help you translate your outdoor living goals into the perfect outdoor space. They will ask you how you want to live outside. Do you want to eat outside? If so, how often and with how man people. Do you want to relax outside? Will this be occasional or do you envision enjoying an evening refreshment outside a couple times/week or more? Will your outdoor space serve as overflow from your house if you entertain frequently? In that case, you may want to consider built in functions that provide additional seating capacity. These additional seating options include wider-set patio retaining walls, built-in benches on your deck and even wide stairs on a multi-level deck which can serve as seating. In short, your Archadeck of Chicagoland deck designer will help you turn your outdoor living goals into a custom design and then into your dream outdoor living space.

Sorting out and making sense of the composite and synthetic options

Not long after composite decking entered the outdoor building market, leading companies began researching how to improve the quality of low maintenance decking, making it more durable and attractive. Composite deck boards include a mixture of resin and wood fibers. A new synthetic board has entered the market – PVC. This board is ultra-strong and even provides protection from fading and staining. As you can imagine, it also comes with a higher price for the additional performance. If you’ve ever wished you could have the perfect combination of 2 great choices, now you can. A great new product includes a composite core with a PVC cap/wrap as the shell. This board, called capstock, is nicely priced as a mid-level option.

Which low maintenance decking product is right for you? There are a number of factors that will help us determine the best recommendation for your space. We will look at how often you plan on using your deck, how much direct sunlight your deck receives, and other factors.

Unique deck design shapes for unique homeowners

Throughout the Chicagoland market, every deck is one-of-a-kind. We are a custom design and build firm. We take deck design seriously. Every home has a different configuration. Every yard accommodates different options depending on the footprint, landscaping and any setback requirements. After taking into account your village’s restrictions and requirements, the real fun begins. Do you want an extended octagonal area tucked to the side for a cozy eating space? Do you want a cooking and grilling area utilizing a “bump out” to ensure no space is taken from the general deck area? For aesthetic value, do you prefer angled edges? We show each client pictures of hundreds of decks we’ve built in the Chicago-area market so you can see different options before making your selection.

Building and installing your favorite outdoor living accessories

At Archadeck of Chicagoland, we can build different elements into your deck. Your deck can include benches around one or multiple sides. Built-in benches increase your seating capacity and can help you maximize your space usage. Some additional built-in accessories can include planters or privacy fences. Another great option is a built-in bar.

Does the deck stand alone?

Many of our homeowners add a covered area to their deck. This can include an open porch partially covering some of the deck area. This allows you to enjoy some protection from hot sunny days and protection from some other elements including rain. A pergola is another very popular structure we can build in conjunction with your deck. Pergolas add tremendous aesthetic appeal and also provide some measure of sun protection.

The deck above is designed for visual appeal and also for a degree of shade. By adding a large pergola atop the whole deck, the outdoor living space has a very upscale and custom flare. By adding a shade and curtains, the homeowners can temper some of the sun and also bugs when needed but otherwise have a space that’s filled with natural light and fresh air.

Want to eliminate maintenance on your new deck? While there is no option for a “no-maintenance” deck, there are great options for a low maintenance deck. Every deck still needs to be sprayed down or swept off. Outside of that minimal maintenance, there are a number of low-maintenance composite wood choices. Choose from AZEK or Timbertech, PVC or capped composite. We’ll walk you through the options, benefits and cost variations of the different materials.
