Turn Your Empty Back Yard into a Much-Loved Retreat with Archadeck of Columbus

If your home has plenty of space in the back, and you don’t have a deck, patio, porch, or some combination of those, let’s talk. Why waste that beautiful, empty space? Build it out with an outdoor living getaway spot you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Custom elevated deck with railing and staircase

The project featured here is a perfect example of a home crying out for a backyard leisure structure. Our clients purchased a newly-built home and knew they wanted to add an outdoor living space in the back. The deck and patio combination Archadeck of Columbus custom-designed for their new home does so much more than just dress up the place. Much more significant than appearances are the hours of outdoor enjoyment this family has gained. Mornings spent sipping coffee on the patio … afternoons spent relaxing on the deck … opportunities gained by making the most of that space.

Your Westerville OH Deck Builder …

Archadeck of Columbus IS your Westerville OH Deck Builder. If you know what kind of deck you want, we’ll listen. If you don’t know, we’ll custom design the perfect deck for your home, your lifestyle and your budget. We’re very good at doing that.

This home had a simple builder-grade landing and steps leading down to the back yard, all built with wood. Many times, where there’s a landing, there could be a deck instead. In this case, the home’s back door was on the second level because the home was built on a slope. It was the perfect location for a deck.

Before and after backyard deck
— Before and after.

Our clients knew they wanted low-maintenance decking for their new home. They chose TimberTech decking in Maritime Gray. This is a darker gray color that provides a striking contrast to the home’s light-colored exterior. We wrapped the beams and posts in AZEK PVC in a light color to match the home’s exterior. For their deck railings, the homeowners selected black aluminum in the Georgian style from Preferred Railing Systems.

… Is Also Your Westerville OH Patio Builder!

That’s right! Archadeck of Columbus specializes in decks and patios/hardscapes—and other outdoor living structures. Here you see the homeowners chose to use the space under their deck as a patio. The deck serves as a shade cover for the patio, so it’s usable on sunny summer days, whereas an uncovered patio might not be.

For their backyard patio, these Westerville homeowners chose Unilock Beacon Hill Flagstone in the color called River. The retaining wall is Unilock Estate Wall in River as well. The cap on the retaining wall is Unilock’s Charcoal Fullnose coping.
