With the holiday weekend coming up, are you looking at your deck, patio or porch and wishing you had made structural improvements? Has your pressure-treated wood deck seen better days? Does your patio have drainage issues or cracks? Would you like to add some amazing features to your outdoor living space?
While it’s too late to make structural improvements by Labor Day 2020, let’s go ahead and start getting ready for Labor Day 2021. At Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we want you to know it’s not too early to meet with us and start making those plans!
What are your Labor Day backyard traditions?
Some holidays are just made for outdoor living fun! Labor Day is definitely one of those holidays that’s best celebrated outdoors. Even if school has already started—in person or remotely—Labor Day always feels like the last throes of summer. Many families have traditions of enjoying specific activities as part of their Labor Day celebrations, and likely some of those are centered around food. Of course!
Will your Labor Day include these activities?
- Grilling hot dogs and burgers on the deck or patio for friends and family
- Hosting a potluck with neighbors on your deck, patio or porch
- Setting up games and prizes for the kids in the yard—relay races, egg toss, water balloons and more silly fun!
- Turning on the sprinkler!
If you don’t feel like your outdoor living space is “celebration-worthy” this Labor Day, let’s be sure to take care of that before next year.
Plan your outdoor living upgrades for Labor Day fun in 2021
Archadeck of Fort Wayne can make custom improvements to your outdoor living space you’ll be proud to show off for any and all holiday celebrations. Let’s look at a few ideas:
- Replace your deck or consider redecking
Deck replacement and redecking are similar but not the same. With a deck replacement, we’ll remove your existing deck and custom-design a new deck for your home. You decide how much you want to change with your new deck design! Many of our clients decide to go with a low-maintenance composite deck when replacing an older wooden deck. Will you decide never to worry about wood deck maintenance again? If you prefer a traditional wood deck, we respect that choice. Archadeck of Fort Wayne is Fort Wayne’s best deck builder, and we can build you the finest wood deck you’ve ever had.

Redecking is a cost-effective way to refresh the look of your deck. Provided your deck’s substructure is in good condition, we can replace the surface boards, railing and stairs. With a new surface, your Fort Wayne deck will look and feel new—the perfect setting for your next Labor Day celebration.

- Imagine your perfect patio for next Labor Day’s outdoor BBQ
If you’re looking at your patio and wishing it were more “special” for your Labor Day activities, what comes to mind? Replacing your plain concrete patio with a beautiful new paver patio? Addressing drainage issues or adding ornamental and functional hardscapes? We are your Fort Wayne patio builder. Add a seating wall, pillars or a pergola. Adding a roof can turn your patio into a covered porch!
- Add an outdoor kitchen or fire feature
If you want to feed a hungry group, you can’t go wrong with an outdoor kitchen integrated into your custom paver patio design! We can scale it up or scale it down depending on how many bells and whistles you want to include with your outdoor kitchen. Labor Day will never be the same at your home!
A fire pit or outdoor fireplace can rachet up the fun in your back yard for Labor Day and every day. Will you wait for dark or start roasting marshmallows early? After a fun-filled day of games and good food, everyone will enjoy gathering around a fire as afternoon turns into evening and the stars begin to twinkle.
- Screened porch, covered porch, open porch?
If rain is in the forecast, wouldn’t it be nice to have a covered area outdoors for long weekends and holiday celebrations? Don’t let adverse weather conditions put a damper on your outdoor fun. Be prepared next year with a protected space you can count on no matter what. At Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we design and build all kinds of porches. Let us custom design the perfect porch for your home—for holidays and every day, all year long.
You CAN have an amazing outdoor living space worthy of your Labor Day celebration this time next year—if you don’t already. While you enjoy the long holiday weekend coming up, give some thought to where and how you might replace or add outdoor living structures. This time next year, you’ll be celebrating in style! And not just next year, but every Labor Day for years to come.
