We specialize in wooden and low-maintenance decks designed with the best synthetics on the market today.

Archadeck of Fort Wayne is a wood deck builder, a composite deck builder, and a synthetic deck builder. As a deck contractor, we are proficient with all of these materials and will help you determine which is best for your deck. Some homeowners prefer wood decks and are not deterred by the maintenance chores required every year or two years to keep a wood deck looking beautiful. Others have had their fill of sanding and staining or painting a wood deck. If you assume a composite or synthetic deck will be too expensive, a new low-maintenance deck may be more affordable than you realize.

Custom Deck

Low maintenance decks offer other benefits in addition to low maintenance. Because they are resistant to the forces that plague wood decks – like UV rays, termites, moisture, and decay – low maintenance decks last longer and look great year after year. Here are some of the wood-alternative decking brands our clients prefer:

TimberTechTimberTech composite decking maintains its color and beauty for years without the recurring work of sanding and painting or staining. And, because it resists mildew, warping, and insects, you won’t need to replace rotting, uneven, or termite-damaged boards, saving you time and money over the life of your Fort Wayne deck. Caring for TimberTech is easier than caring for wood and will allow you to focus on maximum enjoyment instead of maximum maintenance. You can choose between 4-sided and 3-sided composite decking in an array of color options and wood-grain designs. TimberTech composite decking materials are backed by a 30-year warranty (TimberTech Pro) or a 25-year warranty (TimberTech Edge).

AZEK- AZEK synthetic deck boards are engineered to withstand the everyday things that happen on a deck. Even spilled wine, fruit punch, and hamburger grease are no match for AZEK’s stain resistance. And, since AZEK decks are scratch resistant, you won’t have to worry about marks from patio furniture or pets. For unmatched versatility, AZEK’s Vintage Collection decking boards come in three widths: narrow, standard, and wide. Available in a range of colors and wood-grain designs, AZEK decking is made with capped polymer (PVC) for the longest-lasting decking material on the market. AZEK decking boards are backed by a 50-year warranty.

TrexTrex is one of the leaders in the composite decking industry and the inventor of wood-alternative composite decking. Trex is designed to deliver a low-maintenance, high-performance backyard retreat that can handle the outdoors – because your weekends should be spent relaxing on your deck, not repairing it. Trex offers a wide selection of colors in three price ranges and has won awards as “greenest decking brand” with 95% recycled content. Trex decking boards are backed by a 25-year warranty.

Deck Details Matter

While the big things such as placement, style and materials used to build your new deck are vital to aesthetics and function, the details used to design your addition are also important. So much consideration is placed into choosing these big things, that the smaller details may be overlooked. Someone once said that “attention to detail can make the difference between average and stunning” and we couldn’t agree more!stairs with railing and lights

Railing is a detail that is important to the look and feel of your new or improved deck. The right railing can tie your whole space together cohesively. Here at Archadeck of Fort Wayne our preferred deck railing is Westbury aluminum rail. We also like TimberTech/AZEK composite railing products and use them often. Amenities such as drink or buffet rails are sometimes asked for by special request – and we can make that happen! Our talented deck designers will discuss deck railing and upgrade options with you from our large railing menu.

Deck lighting is another detail that can enhance the ambiance, safety and versatility of your Fort Wayne deck. Our deck lighting components include unobtrusive low-voltage LED fixtures mounted onto deck’s posts, railings and/or stair risers. Deck lighting can be subtle and effective at the same time. Deck lighting can “set the mood” for your deck after dark and increases your safety on deck stairs, too.

No outdoor living space is too small – or too large – for us to bring your vision to life!

We Design & Build Lakeside Decks, Too!

With no shortage of beautiful lakes in the Fort Wayne area, it is only natural that we have mastered the art of designing and building lakeside and waterfront decks. With many lakeside homes being remodeling, we receive many requests to update and replace outdoor spaces on the water’s edge.

This lakefront outdoor living transformation in Angola, IN serves as the perfect example.Lakefront Deck Builders Anagola

Located in an area that is referred to as “the land of 101 lakes” on Steuben county’s Lake Gage, Archadeck replaced a once-aging wooden deck with a magnificent custom lakeside retreat.lakefront deck before and after

Before and after – WOW!

The new AZEK low-maintenance deck spans the width of the home. The design showcases picture-framing and a parting board. We used matching AZEK vertical board skirting and built new stairs leading from the deck to the lake and a landing half-way down. The project features post and rail LED lighting that works together with the client’s landscape lighting to create ambiance and increase safety and evening enjoyment.

Wondering Will A New Or Improved Deck Will Add Value To Your Home?

This question comes up quite a bit during our deck design consultation. The answer is an unequivocal “YES,” from two perspectives.

The first perspective is the obvious expectation of dollars and cents, which is what you were probably anticipating. But the other that can best be expressed is emotional value through the years of enjoyment your new space will provide, which is virtually priceless.Decatur IN Azek Deck Builder

Based on our experience, the projected return on investment will fall within a range. For example, Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report indicates that a homeowner can expect a ROI as high as 80% from a new wood deck, based on its size and features. Given the new dynamics of the housing market as of late, other sources indicates that ROI for decks can reach or exceed 100%. Again, it depends on materials used and size of the project, but this financial forecast is compiled information from “multiple studies.”

Replacing your deck gives you a chance to make changes!

If you’re replacing a deck, this is your chance to start fresh and change anything you didn’t like about your old deck. When you sit down with us for your complimentary design consultation, don’t just tell us what you want in a deck; tell us what you don’t want, too. Will you move from wood to composite or synthetic decking? Is this the time to expand the size of your deck or select a new railing style that allows more visibility? With thinner balusters, vertical or horizontal cable railings, or glass railing panels, you’ll have a better view of the outdoors than you could have imagined possible.

Is redecking a possibility instead of replacing your old deck?

Dog and kid

Are you familiar with redecking?

It’s a money-saving option that may be available to you if the support structure under your existing deck is in good shape. We’ll need to examine the underside of your deck before we can determine if it’s a candidate for redecking. If it is, we can remove the surface materials – decking boards, railings, and stairs – and build a new surface atop the existing substructure. It won’t matter whether you want a wood deck or low-maintenance composite or synthetic deck. The support structure is always built with wood, regardless of your deck surface material. Redecking is often possible because the wood under your deck has been protected from the effects of weather and the sun’s UV rays, which cause wood to deteriorate.

Could your deck become part of a multi-faceted combination outdoor living space?

Custom Deck

Turn your deck from an outdoor room into an outdoor suite by adding a patio, porch, or three-season room. We call this a combination outdoor living space when you have two or more outdoor structures that work together to create your ideal backyard retreat. What we find every time is that for maximum versatility and functionality, the outdoor combination space always adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

Custom Deck

Let your mind run wild with the possibilities of the perfect combination outdoor living space for you. Mix and match the structures to see what feels right for your home. What if you added a four-season room that opens onto a new deck? What if you replaced your deck with a screened porch or three-season room and built a new deck onto that? What if you could step from your new deck to a new a patio? If you could have any combination of outdoor living structures, what would that look like? Have you considered the many benefits of having a pergola integrated into your custom deck design? Add an outdoor fireplace or an outdoor kitchen. When you work with Archadeck of Fort Wayne, your deck can be a building block for any combination of outdoor structures.

First deck, bigger deck, replacement deck, or redecked deck? Wood deck, composite deck, synthetic deck? Your deck!
