If you are in search of a Greensboro deck builder that also provides deck renovations, Archadeck wants to be your first choice. We are pleased to have been a part of this extensive backyard makeover.
Wood decks offer a traditional feel, which is difficult to match. Many of our clients still prefer wood over low-maintenance, composite materials. However, a wood deck will require a bit of professional attention as it ages. Even Brazilian hardwood decks, like this one in Greensboro, might need a facelift after a few years of service. This family was ready for a full-scale backyard renovation, which included resurfacing the entire pool area, refurbishing the deck, and adding a few new features – the latter two provided by Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad.
Greensboro NC Ipe deck: Before renovation
What happens during a deck renovation project?
Deck renovations can be carried out in a few ways. For many, the term ‘deck renovation’ translates to redecking. This Archadeck specialized service typically includes replacing decking materials, stairs, and railings – often, upgrading those materials to low-maintenance products. This Greensboro deck renovation was a bit different. Originally built with Ipe hardwood, much of the decking boards were in good shape. We removed all the decking to start. Following that, we refortified the deck structure, which had begun to droop. We then reinstalled the Ipe decking, replacing only boards that were past their useful life.

Something new was in store for this backyard oasis.
Enter, red cedar pergolas – yes, plural! As you can see in the original photo of this backyard, the deck used to be wide-open to the elements. While Ipe is a choice decking product for environmental exposure, it will fare even better under the protection of the new pergolas. These beautiful structures offer a grand aesthetic in the back yard, but they will play double duty by offering a space of respite for pool-goers. The living areas beneath pergolas are great for outdoor lounges and even poolside dining spaces. Adding a pergola atop a deck or patio brings an element of flexibility that few other outdoor living amenities can provide. And this deck has two!

Two pergolas are great. Three are even better.
This smaller pergola serves a very particular purpose. It is part of a lychgate design that now defines the entryway to the pool area. While it is smaller in size than its grand counterparts, it is no less important to the backyard design – and is proof positive that no portion of the entire space was not thoughtfully planned and executed.
