A little change can go a long way -- as was the case with this project in Centerville, OH

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio wants to point out to our potential clients that even a partial upgrade to an existing structure can often make a HUGE impact. Our recent project in Centerville, OH, serves as the perfect example of this statement.

When these Centerville homeowners contacted us, their existing Ipe deck had a raised octagonal portion which was starting to fail. Not only were they looking to have the aging built-in benches and fire pit removed from the octagon, but they also wanted to open up this area for improved aesthetics, functionality and flow.

Archadeck to the rescue!

Upon a thorough inspection of the area in question, we confirmed that the octagonal portion of the existing deck’s framing was indeed in need of replacement. This is where we started the project; first, we removed the fire pit from the area and tore out the old bench seating. We then reframed the substructure of this portion of the deck for strength and structural integrity.

Once the substructure rebuild was completed, we then rebuilt the octagon using low-maintenance Armadillo Lifestyle composite decking in the Campfire color. We also added unique details to the area using Armadillo decking in Foothills for the dividers and Walnut for the beautiful floor inlay.

— After

Taking the WOW factor of this project a step farther, Archadeck added a new railing comprised of baroque-style aluminum balusters from Deckorators with an Ipe rail and topped in composite. The combination of materials is truly breathtaking and adds a unique and elegant feel to the entire deck! No matter what size a project is, we are the experts at instilling a custom look to any outdoor structure!
