We deliver the service and community commitment of a local, family-owned business backed by the strength of a company that’s been building top outdoor structures since 1980.

What we build: Archadeck will build the outdoor living space to suit how you want to live outside. Your space will be custom-fit to your home and custom-tailored to your aeshtetic desires and functional needs. Below is a list of some of the structures and spaces we build most frequently.

Decks:
Pressure-treated wood decks, cedar decks, wax injected wood decks, composite decks, PVC decks, Trex decks, Brazilian hardwood decks, Ipe decks, mahogany decks, decks, deck lighting in any custom shapes, elevations and sizes to fit your home.

Porches:
Open porches, screen porches, lanais, Carolina rooms, Florida rooms, covered porches, Eze-Breeze porches, 3-season rooms, 4-season rooms, conversions from deck to porch and from patio to porch

Patios:
Paver patios, stone patios, stack stone patios, hardscapes, blue stone patios, flagstone patios, travertine tile patios, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor fire pits, outdoor pizza ovens, outdoor kitchen units, backyard bar units, retaining walls

Pergolas:
Pergolas are very popular options both for their beauty and for the function they provide. While a pergola does not provide as much shade as a porch or roof structure, it does provide a level of sun protection. Depending on the orientation of the sun in your yard and the level of sun protection you’re seeking, we can help develop a pergola to fit your needs. A polycarbonate cover can be added to your pergola to provide some rain protection and also some UV protection.

We build wood pergolas, cedar pergolas, trellises, arbors, PVC pergolas, composite pergolas, decorative column pergolas and any color/material/design combination you can think of.

Outdoor fireplaces and fire features
Outdoor living is more than just enjoying the fresh air. True outdoor living means moving your favorite and most treasured activities outside. This includes enjoying meals, refreshments, preparing food and cooking outside. At Archadeck, we build hundreds of outdoor kitchens and outdoor fireplaces to help Charlotte-area homeowners enjoy time and meals in their own backyard.

Call us for information about an outdoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit, outdoor kitchen, outdoor bar or even a wood burning outdoor fireplace freestanding in your yard or integrated into your deck, porch or patio.

Satisfied customers: The strongest proof of our performance

The structure of the enclosed porch and the building materials used were much more substantial than what we thought. We had envisioned a much simpler project and were impressed with what Archadeck actually built.

We want to especially recognize the carpenters who did the work on our house, as well as the painter that you recommended. They did an excellent job.

Thank goodness you determined that no extra work had to be done with the footings for the porch on our back-filled yard overlooking 14 Mile Creek. As we had discussed when we signed the contract, any additional cost for this might have stopped us from proceeding with the project!

We are very happy with the porch!

Kris and Bill, Charlotte, NC

The carpenter’s work ethic was absolutely first class.

D. Turner, Charlotte, NC

Dealing with Archadeck has been like dealing with an old friend who is reliable, trustworthy, and pleasant.

R. Hunter, Charlotte, NC

Thank you Archadeck, for turning our rather dull backyard into a showcase that we can be proud of.

P. DeMarco, Harrisburg, NC

The quality of your product and the professionalism of your office staff, representatives, and carpenters are unsurpassed. We have the most beautiful deck in Charlotte and it’s all because of you!

B. Shiles, Charlotte, NC

Everything was done with precision and care, a rare occurrence in the construction industry?

D. Kent, Matthews, NC

The investment turned out to be an excellent one both financially and aesthetically.

M. Trunk, Charlotte, NC

You delivered exactly what you promised, on time, to a much higher standard of quality than I dreamed possible and you did it all while maintaining impeccably clear communications. You folks are a breath of fresh air.

D. Scott-Harmony, Charlotte, NC

It appears that my new deck will be here forever

A. Oxman, Lake Wylie, SC

I made a mistake by going with the lowest bidder and have suffered for it.

W. Klugman, Charlotte, NC

Until we met Archadeck we thought a deck was just a deck.

R. Mitchell, Charlotte, NC

Eric and Susan, Thank you, thank you so much, I love my new porch!!!!! I just put another coat of natural stain on the floor and it looks beautiful. Eric, I kept telling Susan that the crew, especially Weylan and Johnny were just so terrific to deal with, such gentlemen and they did great work, Ryan was wonderful along with everyone else that I had to deal with, I couldn’t be more pleased with everything. Now we would really like you to come over when it’s done and have a relaxing glass of wine with us, I’ll send some pictures when I get the furniture all set up. Again, thank you for everything, the whole experience with your company was super. MJ and Al

MJ and Al

Working with the folks at Archadeck has been a joy. From the moment we met with Eric Kent we knew we were in good hands. The construction crew was dependable and on time! Their attention to detail was impressive. The end product, a gorgeous arbor, is beautiful. I heartily recommend Archadeck and know that the consumer will never be disappointed with this company.

We are pleased with the way the job turned out. We think it looks like it has always been this way. Tony was a nice guy who took pride in his work and worked diligently to complete our project. Thanks for another job well done.

Gayle A, Charlotte, NC

We LOVE our roof! Dave and Valentino were wonderful… their attention to detail was superb. They were conscientious at clean up and even made sure the gate was closed when they left. Please thank them for a job well done. We can’t wait to show off the final project. Thanks for all your help.

Judy M, Charlotte, NC

Dear Eric,
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed having your team up fit my shop. They were all happy, polite, tidy, and friendly besides doing a great job!

Gigi, Charlotte, NC

Wow! When you say today or tomorrow, it is done! I got home this evening and the electrical is done, the screen sliding door is finished. Awesome! There’s just a little touch up on some interior boards above the screen door and some edge on the trim exterior boards and that’s it. An excellent, professional job. Nannette were talking at dinner about the great job and no inconvenience whatsoever. We will definitely recommend Archadeck to anyone looking for a great addition to their home. Even our neighbor has shown some of his friends the patio and porch.

Tim and Nannette, Charlotte, NC

Hope you and Susan are well and enjoying this warm winter we’re having, hey when I get home from work I can still pour me a glass of wine and sit on my porch swing and enjoy. There have been a few nights when it’s not to cold I bring out my portable heater and sit there with a nice comfy quilt over me and it’s just beautiful, as I’ve said before “best thing we ever did.”

MJ, Charlotte, NC

Just wanted you to know that Cliff Norris did an outstanding job in building our deck addition. Not only did he work from morning to night but also worked through the hottest days yet this year. Always cleaned up at the end of the day.

Perhaps you could let us have his cell phone number so that we could thank him personally. If you cannot give us his information, please have him call us.

Did want to let you know that did such a nice clean job and we love our expanded deck.

Maria, Charlotte, NC

Eric – short story and another ‘thank you’. My wife has been out of town for the last 4 months caring for a family member. We knew she would be home soon, which would be both bad and good. Thus the reason for wanting the installation done quickly. I knew the one thing she did not like about the house was the concrete patio and she loved the pavers we had in Charleston. The new patio was meant to be a surprise, thanks for all she had given the last 4 months, and an early birthday present. As she opened the back door last night, she was thrilled, could not believe it – thought it was ‘perfect’, from the design to the color. So thanks again – while I know it was a small job and simple business contract, I felt comfortable working with you and appreciate the job your team did.

Norm G, Charlotte, NC

I help customers design their spaces, inside and outside of their homes, and Eric Kent of Archadeck of Charlotte and Value Re modeler has become my TO GO TO contractor as far as referring someone to my clients. I can consistently rely on his professionalism and hard work to assist my clients in their home projects. We work together to make sure the customer has a very good experience. From a 500 square foot addition, to opening up space to make the home flow better, Archadeck has the expertise and the integrity to get the work done the way my customers like it. I let me customers know that Eric Kent makes me look good because Eric always come through for my customers.

thank-you everyone at Archadeck
I’m very very pleased with the great customer service you have provided. You guys and girls are 5 stars!

Brett B, Charlotte NC

These guys are just fantastic, they work from the minute they get here in the morning, no fooling around and they clean up so nice at the end of the day.

Marie C, Charlotte NC

I want you to know how great our deck looks. Steve has been a delight to work with. Even the gentleman who came to clean up was professional and nice. And the other Steve has been very professional ! I am so impressed with your company! Just wanted to let you know.

Sharon G, Charlotte NC

We had about 60 people at our house last night. You got great reviews on the porch. It looks great. Archadeck Rocks!

Alec L, Gastonia NC

A huge compliment for the effort they put forth and their attention to detail. Both teams that have come in (deck builders paint team) have been absolutely phenomenal. I m sure there are other teams out there and I am sure they also do a great job but I just wanted to give a shout out that Sarah and I could not be more pleased with the groups we have had out here. Thank you as I am sure you had a hand in selecting these teams and please pass along our appreciation to these folks as well.

Ted and Sarah, Charlotte NC

Bill Mulliss completed the warranty work on our porch in one day, which is quite remarkable. And, as expected, his craftsmanship is without peer. I’m so pleased we contracted with Archadeck to build the porch and that Bill Mulliss was assigned to perform the task. Thank you for the integrity of your company in following up on the warranty work.

Richard, Charlotte NC

Michael did an excellent job. He is so pleasant to work with and he made the process very easy. I am happy that archadeck has such a strong focus on customer satisfaction. I will recommend your company to others.

Kirsten D, Charlotte NC

It looks fantastic! We are very happy with the patio. My husband is so proud – he was showing all the neighbors. We certainly weren’t expecting them to get it done so quickly! We look forward to working with you on future projects for our yard.

Erin C, Charlotte NC

The fire pit is BEYOND amazing!! LOVE IT! Would love to get some pictures to you OR you and Sarah can come out!! ANY TIME! We gather outside whenever weather permits.

Tammy V, Charlotte NC

We had our beautiful screened in porch built by Archadeck. We were so pleased with the quality, craftsmanship, and work ethic of all those involved that we hired them again to remodel our master bath.
We were once again impressed from beginning to end with the entire project. The contractors were always on time, clean and professional. Thanks Archadeck for creating our dream master bath and making the process of remodeling so easy!

Barb and Dale A, Charlotte NC

Once again, Archadeck/Value Remodelers comes thru!

You know how much we love our porch and deck, but you may not know that your team has installed new windows and shutters. We really appreciate the care we received from Mike Luick, John Flynn, Callan Smith, and your office staff. But we especially wanted to let you know about another employee who is terrific.

After talking with John about some repairs and “touch up” warranty work, Callan sent Mike Homewood out to do the work. Mike is terrific. He is courteous, and “knows his stuff.” He is a real asset too your team.

Not sure what remodeling we will have done next, but we know who we will call.

Bill and Jackie K, Charlotte NC

I wanted to let you know your folks finished up my patio in Tega Cay yesterday and did a wonderful job on it. I could not be happier with the pavers and my wife loves them as well. It is probably the best installation I have seen in many years. Fit and finish were superb, and only took 2 days to complete. They also did a great job with cleanup in the material storage area as well.

John M, Tega Cay SC

Thanks so much to all of your sub contractors, especially Steve and Dennis, for doing a fantastic job. The addition looks like it has always been part of the house and the quality and workmanship are of a very high level. Please pass this along to Eric Kent. I am already working on the design for a screened porch but need to take a breather for now. I will certainly be in touch with Eric when we decide to proceed. Again thank you and the Archadeck team for our beautiful new addition. Our sun room addition looks beautiful and we love it. Everyone says it looks like it has always been part of our house

Teresa H, Cornelius, NC

Bruno was fantastic, polite, prompt, efficient and did great work. Keep him content as he is an asset to your business.

Joann I, Charlotte NC

We have been very satisfied with the crews that Archadeck has sent to our house. Such a joy to work with – they always listened to what I had to say and would explain what they were doing at the time. Breno and his crew are the best!

Janet T, Mint Hill NC

These two buys are extremely hard working, nice and I could not ask for better.

Lotha P, Davidson NC

Did a great job, worked quickly, always courteous and considerate. Quality is excellent, attention to detail and great finished look. Blends well with existing structure. Thanks for your hard work!

Deborah S, Charlotte NC

Marcello was great. Her performed quality work on our project.

Lisa C, Mooresville NC

Thanks again for all your hard work. The cleanup at night was very helpful with young kids. Another plus was the long hours that have been worked to get the job done.

Brian and Kristine M, Matthews NC
