When we initially met with these Dallas homeowners, their existing outdoor living space consisted of an aging concrete patio and cement block wall that allowed very little view into the backyard. The patio was accessible from a wooden step-down stop and the footprint made the area feel confined and not conducive to the type of outdoor living lifestyle they yearned for. In addition, the concrete patio had settled and was starting to become unleveled and cracked in certain areas. This was the turning point from which they reached out to Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake to transform their backyard to bring them the level playing field for the enjoyment they had in mind.
Aside from just aesthetics, there are many reasons why having a level outdoor living space is important.
Safety is a top priority when it comes to enjoying your outdoor living space to the fullest. Uneven areas such as stairs, sloped or cracked flooring (such as the field of a concrete patio), and compromised door thresholds account for many injuries each year.
How Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake transformed this space.
First, we removed the again concrete slab patio. Once the patio was removed we then built a new, level, substructure that allows the homeowners to enter the back of their home level with the new deck. The new deck also features dual entries into the backyard. We then installed a TimberTech low maintenance deck.
The homeowners chose TimberTech PRO Terrain decking in Silver Maple with a Brown Oak parting board and border. We also used solid board skirting in Silver Maple to give the deck a cohesive look This decking is easy on the eyes and requires little maintenance to keep it looking like new. Four-sided capping makes it extremely resistant to moisture damage, and its protective surface resists everyday stains and scratches.
Finishing off the new backyard design is a black iron railing and integrated low-voltage deck lighting. Yes, you guessed it — the deck can be enjoyed day and night with ease and ambiance! Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake also installed crushed granite around the perimeter of the deck. This small addition brings the whole space together and addresses an area of the landscape where the grass is difficult to grow.
