As the premier deck designer and builder for the Avon, Farmington, Guilford, Madison, Cheshire and Woodbridge areas of CT, providing a large menu of decking options is important.

The answer is yes!
Archadeck of Hartford Fairfield is the only deck builder in the area to offer green decking choices such as Moistureshield, Fiberon and Bamboo.

Fairfield’s Fiberon Deck Builder

Fiberon products are made from recycled materials. This means they divert more than 60,000 tons of wood and plastics from landfills and incinerators each year. Additionally, Fiberon products are free of harmful chemicals, and their decking is produced using sustainable processes which contribute toward points in LEED and other green building rating systems. Plus, they use a closed-loop water cooling system for zero water discharge which recovers 98.5% of the waste materials they generate.

These practices were recognized by Green Builder magazine, who named Fiberon a 2015 Eco-leader.

Hartford’s Bamboo Deck Builder

Bamboo is environmentally friendly and sustainable. When looking at the green aspect, it is a top choice for your Connecticut deck or porch.

  • Bamboo matures in 5-7 years, so crops are replenished constantly. Most hardwood used in the US comes from South America, where deforestation is a severe problem. It takes at least 50 years to grow hardwood trees.
  • In terms of a carbon footprint, although we think of bamboo as mainly growing in Asia, it is also grown in the United States and South America.
  • Bamboo is resistant to insects and doesn’t require pesticides or other harmful chemicals for protection as it grows.
  • Bamboo absorbs 35% more carbon dioxide per acre than trees. (Remember: bamboo is not a tree; it is a grass).

Bamboo — Naturally Strong & Beautiful!

The bamboo we use at Archadeck of Hartford-Fairfield for building decks is stronger than most hardwoods. We buy high-quality bamboo decking boards from MOSO®, a company that specializes in carbonized, fused bamboo decking. MOSO® uses a patented process to alter the hardness, dimensional stability, fire safety and durability of their product to a level superior to the best tropical hardwood species.

Did we mention bamboo is beautiful? Bamboo lends an exotic flair to your outdoor living project, yet it will look right at home on your Woodbridge, Guilford, Madison or Cheshire deck or porch. Bamboo can be stained in a wide range of shades from light natural to dark chocolate making it a versatile exterior design element. The freedom of bamboo allows you to easily coordinate with your home’s exterior color palette. To keep its exotic appeal over the years, bamboo requires no more work than you would need to do for a hardwood deck; the actual maintenance is very similar.
