— Cromwell, CT, deck by Archadeck of Central CT
An excellent example of how this works is the story of a family for whom we built a Fiberon low-maintenance deck in Middletown, CT, several years ago. They loved the work we did there. They felt strongly about the level of service we provided and the high quality of the outdoor living space we designed and built. Because they were so pleased with the job, when they moved they called us again. Not only did they want us to return to design and build their new outdoor living space, they wanted to use Fiberon as their decking material again. Repeat performances all around!
New deck above; re-deck below
When the clients moved from Middletown to Cromwell, they decided to refresh the existing deck at their new home, and they wanted to link the house deck with the pool deck. This home had decks attached to the house at two levels—a second-story deck and a ground-level deck below it—and a pool deck that was completely separate. The lower deck didn’t need to be completely replaced, so we kept its existing substructure and only redecked the surface with new decking boards.
Connecting the multi-level deck to the pool deck
Our redesign of the upper deck includes a landing partway down the new stairs that connects to the pool deck. This design is a huge improvement for the homeowners. The previous configuration had them walking down the deck stairs, through the yard, and up another set of stairs to the pool deck. Now they have a choice when they start down the stairs and reach the landing from the upper deck. They can either continue down the stairs to the yard, or they can follow the landing across to the new gate for the pool deck.
The Fiberon color our clients selected for their upper deck replacement Ipe (pronounced ee-pay, the color of an exotic hardwood), and they selected vinyl railings. They are fully invested in the low-maintenance outdoor living lifestyle.
Grilling in the shade
Beneath the upper deck, the homeowners have a shaded area with comfortable seating on the lower deck. The grill can be positioned right at the edge of the lower deck so the grill isn’t under the covered area, yet the grill master can remain in the shade while grilling.
