Westerville, OH Landing & Stoop Update - Small Project, Maximum Impact!

Archadeck of Columbus gave this home a few key updates with results that pack a true design and function punch.

We understand that not every home and yard require a top-to-bottom renovation. If you have a small outdoor space in need of rejuvenation, Archadeck of Columbus will offer solutions to update the aesthetics and functionality – just like we did for these Westerville, Ohio homeowners.

If there is one thing we hate to see, it’s unused or underutilized outdoor space! We worked with these homeowners to create a plan for their landing and stoop that not only gave them a fresh, new look but the better usability of their outdoor area. Small backyards prevail in newer neighborhoods today. Aside from abbreviated outdoor living space, they provide little in the way of outdoor storage. We have learned the value of enclosing exterior stairs to offer homeowners a bit of exterior storage, which can be used for any number of items – toys, planting/potting tools, small outdoor equipment, lawn décor.

For this “backyard façade” rejuvenation, we chose high-quality, low-maintenance materials. With Fypon stair risers and trim, TimberTech composite decking material on the steps, and Hardieplank lap siding, these homeowners will not have to scrape, sand, seal, or re-paint – EVER. What a breath of fresh air the Westbury white aluminum rails are, compared to the previous standard wood multi-picket rails. Sanding and re-staining those pickets yearly would have been quite a task, even for just a single stairway! The Hardiplank skirting not only created enclosed outdoor storage beneath the stair, it gave us an opportunity to install a stylish and functional custom sliding barn door enclosure. This area is so gorgeous, we almost wish it were on the front of the house, where everyone can see it!

— Who knew a small landing and stoop could have so much character?

Archadeck of Columbus took this small outdoor space, which lacked character and usability, and would have required too much upkeep through the years, and gave it a true purpose with a custom look that will require very little maintenance. That’s a win-win-win for these Westerville homeowners. This project is a testament to how smaller spaces can still provide high impact.
