Using their Advanced PVC Harvest Collection featuring a Cathedral Grain, the deck floor was built by Archadeck of Fort Wayne, Indiana, in the mocha-looking Brownstone, accented with the rich, ruddy brown color of Kona.

These homeowners really get it when they say they love outdoor living. They love it so much that they never – ever – will have to worry about their combination two-level deck and overhead pergola looking worn and tried.

A quick rinse with a garden hose or a whisk of a broom easily removes any outdoor debris to return this masterful combination outdoor space to its original glory.

An Archadeck Custom Deck Deserves Shade Protection Especially In Areas Where The Afternoon Sun Is Intense

Look at the shade output and diffused sun protection coverage this vinyl pergola provides. Meticulously constructed with angled slats – or purlins – it allows the fresh air in, while keeping the intense sun rays out.

This majestic shade crown atop this two-level outdoor living room deck provides just the right combination of utility, comfort and convenience for this growing family.

To help keep them safe when out there, we protected the deck perimeter with our signature Westbury® railing to provide definition to the outdoor living space and prevent any mishaps.

The Westbury aluminum railing system is an assemblage of extruded aluminum top and bottom rails, balusters, structural aluminum posts, rail to post brackets, decorative moldings and post caps. Available in various colors and architectural grade powder finishes, it is the perfect final touch for the imaginative outdoor living space.

The Benefits Of Having A Pergola Integrated Into Your Custom Low Maintenance Deck Design

Custom shade-providing pergolas and decks go together like strawberries and chocolate or game day and tailgating. Together, they are a natural combination.

To make sure your pergola is absolutely perfect for your deck, the best strategy is to have them designed and built together. Archadeck of Fort Wayne has been designing and building pergola-and-deck pairs for more than a decade. If you have custom deck and pergola designs in mind, we are the only Fort Wayne, IN, company you need to call – and that’s the truth.

Of course, if you already have a deck, we can add a pergola to that deck for you. We pride ourselves in being able to add components to an existing outdoor living space structure while neatly making it look like they were originally built together.

As custom deck designers, however, we will be the first to tell you that a custom deck and pergola complement each other perfectly when designed together.

The primary benefits of integrating your deck and pergola designs are threefold:

1. Creating and maximizing shade

2. Ornamentation and visual interest

3. Additional function beyond shade

A Custom Deck With Pergola Makes Shade Work For You

How much shade would you like on your deck? You may think there is one simple answer, but that is not the case. When Archadeck of Fort Wayne designs your pergola, we make sure to ask how much shade you will expect it to provide.

This is really a two-part question. First, do you want your pergola to cover the entire deck, or just some portion of it? Some homeowners prefer to leave part of the deck uncovered. Preserving an area of open deck allows you to bask in the sun, when it’s not too hot, and enjoy stargazing at night.

Second, how much shade do you want? When you look at photos of pergolas, you usually see a grid pattern of sunlight and shade on the surface below. As your Northeast Indiana pergola designer, we can increase or decrease the amount of sun allowed through. We do this by increasing or decreasing the angle and/or size of the rafters and slats at the top of the pergola. We can also increase or decrease the amount of space between rafters or slats.

Shade amount is also affected by the position of the pergola in relation to the sun’s path. When we design your pergola, we’ll go over all of these details carefully. If you want total shade, we can cover your pergola with a retractable canopy or with polycarbonate sheeting. These coverings also protect you from rain showers, so that’s another great reason to incorporate a pergola into your custom deck design.

For Stunning Custom Deck Creations, Add A Pergola

When it comes to our custom deck designs, the ones with the most “WOW factor” are usually those with a pergola overhead for architectural interest and sun protection. As an Archadeck Outdoor Living client, you decide what special custom features you want to include in your deck design.

For ornamentation and visual interest, we recommend incorporating a pergola into the deck design. Not only does the pergola provide shade for your deck, its posts or columns become visual accents, too.

A pergola can also help set off a specific area of the deck for an intended purpose. For example, a pergola over a dining table emphasizes the dining area. And, a pergola over an outdoor kitchen defines that area. A pergola at the outer edge of a deck can serve as a visual boundary for your outdoor living space. It’s your custom deck, so let’s customize it!
