Amazing Outdoor Living Transformation in Fort Wayne, IN

Reminiscent of a deluxe outdoor living escape usually fashioned by set designers in the movies, comes this latest home improvement transformation in Fort Wayne.

low maintenance deck

This extreme backyard exterior makeover followed the spirit of what was previously there but the reinvention of the space ensured that the low maintenance materials used in this re-creation would easily stand the test of time.



Demolishing the rickety old second floor wood deck and support structure was the first order of business. Its rebirth now features time-tested AZEK PVC deck boards.



AZEK Deck Boards Have The Look, Feel, And Sound Of Premium Wood Decking And Come With A Lifetime Limited Warranty

Let’s face it. There is nothing like real wood. The patina, the texture, the aroma – it is one of nature’s greatest gifts to us. But when it comes to using this precious resource outside for outdoor living spaces like decks, porches, and pergolas, an Earth-friendly synthetic or composite alternative is often the better choice.


Take AZEK, for example. Using AZEK deck boards in the color Kona, we have created an entirely new outdoor living experience for this Fort Wayne family.

Among its many transformative qualities, AZEK features:

• A lifetime limited warranty

• Truly low maintenance

• Slip resistant surface

• Stain Resistance

• Mold and mildew resistance

• Scratch Resistance

• And comes in a wonderful assortment of colors

VertiCable Railing’s Westbury Rail Adds Protection With Elegantly Simple Structural Beauty

To ensure that the new second level deck has a protected perimeter to guard against mishaps, we chose to install the Westbury VertiCable railing system as it offered unobstructed views of this stunning and vast greenspace backyard.

This contemporary, streamlined aluminum railing system with vertical cables and balusters provides architectural style with a virtually unobstructed view, which makes it an excellent choice for homeowners fortunate enough to have expansive vistas outside of the rear of their homes.

Outdoor Living Combination Space Featuring 3 Distinct Areas For Leisure, Relaxation, And Entertaining

  • A second story expansive deck.
  • A luxe hardscape patio below.
  • And a weather-protected rain deck over the patio.

Talk about an outdoor living trifecta! This innovative Fort Wayne deck builder design features the best of all possible worlds.

In keeping with the low maintenance profile of the new combination backyard space, the project also features a dry space rain deck area under the second level deck that was completed using TimberTech.

TimberTech was ranked #1 in Quality in the 2019 Builder Brand Use Study and #1 in Quality in the Railing category in the 2019 Remodeler Brand Use Study.

Emulating many of the popular attributes of AZEK, TimberTech decking is a composite material made of wood particles and high-density polyethylene, with added compounds to resist rot, mold and scratching.

To complete the space, vinyl lattice was used for the storage area to the left of the new patio and we installed riser lights on the deck steps to provide illuminated sightlines for safety and ambiance after dusk.
