Turn Your Outdoor Living "To Do" List into Your Outdoor Living "To Done!"

When it comes to adding outdoor living structures to your home, you have a choice. You can interview and hire several contractors with different specialties, or one who specializes in every aspect of outdoor living construction. Archadeck of Fort Wayne is the premier local builder who specializes in all things outdoor living. If you’re looking at decks, patios and other hardscapes, we can take that “to do” list and get it all done for you, with beautiful results.

Custom outdoor living space

As we move into fall, you may be taking stock of what needs to be done around your home before winter. Outdoor “to do” lists are essential this time of year. Meanwhile, as you’re enjoying the cooler weather, is adding a deck or patio on your “to do” list this year? Maybe even a deck and patio combination with an outdoor kitchen, outdoor fireplace or fire pit?

Fort Wayne’s Single Source for Deck and Patio Combinations

When you work with different contractors for your deck and hardscapes, the result can be a disjointed building process, even chaos. Some aspects of the two jobs can be interdependent and require close coordination, which isn’t always easy with two or more contractors involved.

When you work with Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we design and plan your entire project at one time. This allows us to work more efficiently. By designing your deck and hardscape elements together, we can create one cohesive design that feels organic instead of haphazard. It makes more sense to work with one design-and-build firm that can handle all facets of the outdoor living space you have in mind.

Combining a Deck Makeover with New Hardscapes?

Instead of a new deck, does your autumn “to do” list include a deck makeover? You may not need to replace your aging deck. Perhaps it just needs to be spruced up. If you have an older deck and want to add hardscapes to your outdoor living space, we may recommend a deck makeover instead of deck replacement.

When we talk about a deck makeover, the process we’re referring to is called redecking. It’s a way to save time and money by replacing your deck’s surface, railings and stairs instead of replacing the entire deck. Not all decks are candidates for redecking, so we would need to examine your deck’s support structure before proceeding with that idea.

Thinking about replacing your wood deck with a low-maintenance composite deck? The money you save with redecking can partially offset the higher cost of composite/synthetic decking materials.
