As an outdoor living space design and build company, we have seen it all when it comes to builder-grade decks and patios. From the miniscule walk-out concrete pad, the deck with dimensions so small you can barely turn around and yes, the walk-out stoop. A walk-out stoops serve as a way to access the backyard from the home, but offers no functionality or aesthetics.
If you follow us on social media or read our blog you know that adding function and beauty to your outdoors is our specialty! Our most recent project in Westerville, OH serves as the perfect example of a adding both of these beneficial factors to a backyard space!
As you can see from this before image (above), the homeowners had nothing more than a wooden walk out area and narrow stairs into the backyard. Their desire was to have a backyard space with more room to better “frame” the back of their home. In addition, they also wanted a space that was low-maintenance but at the same time high-aesthetic -- Archadeck of Columbus was able to give them all in one streamlined, custom deck design!
We began the project by removing the stoop (naturally). We then added a low-maintenance TimberTech custom deck using TimberTech Edge decking in the Coconut Husk color. TimberTech Edge decking features an easy to clean surface and is resistant to moisture. This decking also resists stains and is formulated from 80% recycled materials making it a premier green decking choice!
The deck also features a black powder-coated aluminum rail which adds a dramatic contrast alongside the decking color. We also installed a safety gate at the top of the staircase to ensure pets and small children can enjoy the deck with the homeowner’s peace of mind. Last but certainly not least, look at these wide, flowing steps – making for a safer entry into the backyard.
The homeowners are just elated with their new deck! Not only does it add dimension and depth to the back of their lovely home, it also gives them a place to create cherished memories with family and friends.
