Being in the business of providing award-winning outdoor living space designs to Charlotte area homeowners for almost 30 years speaks volumes. Archadeck of Charlotte is celebrating its 29th year and we are still going strong. As we take a step back to look at all we have achieved, one thing comes to mind — the way our custom deck designs have inspired a better way to enjoy the outdoors.
Our projects take you beyond the basic and boring decks of yesteryear when a deck was considered an appendage rather than an enhancement. We have successfully mastered the art of making the backyard deck the center of attention. A deck is a destination you look forward to visiting and lingering on. It also serves as a place to evoke your imagination while escaping in the pages of a good book. A deck can be a place to be proud to entertain friends or a place that serves as the centerpiece for outdoor family fun. Not just a place to cook a hot dog because the grill just happens to be located on the deck.
Our deck designs are timeless, innovative and ideal for enjoying the everyday things that are so important. We offer a wide portfolio of classic to modern deck ideas. When it comes to choosing the right deck for your Charlotte backyard there are many elements to consider. These include size, materials, style and budget.
How big should my deck be?
A small deck intended to hold a round dining table should be at least 12 feet by 12 feet, while a large deck can be designed with much more space. The average size deck is between 300 and 400 square feet. Generally, a deck should be wider than it is deep, with the longer dimension running along the house. Archadeck of Charlotte considers many factors when consulting with clients about how big their deck should be. We ask about the furnishings you intend to use and what activities you want to engage in on the deck. We also take the dimensions and style of your home into consideration as well as any setbacks and local and /or HOA restrictions.
What decking material should I choose?
Choosing a decking material for your intended deck addition is based on two main factors. These are maintenance requirements and your budget. During our consultation, we go over the various materials we offer in detail to help you choose the one that is perfect for you. One of the perks of being the area’s premier outdoor living space provider is having an extensive indoor and outdoor showroom. This enables you to see and feel all the various decking options. These include wood, hardwood and low-maintenance composites like Trex, AZEK and TimberTech. We also have a wide variety of railing options to choose from at our showroom.
How much should I spend?
It is imperative to establish a realistic budget for your outdoor living project. Deciding how much you want to spend needs to be decided upon before we begin designing your project. This is why we inquire about your intended budget during your initial consult because of the importance of having one in place before proceeding. We realize this is sometimes a hard decision and we make every effort to make it the opposite (easy). If you are unsure of where you need to set your budget, we can show you our portfolio and pictures to help you get an idea of what you want and what you want to spend.
Our quality design service paired with our innovative detailed pricing menu allows customers to see how different options look together. This will help you make an informed buying decision because many people have an idea of what they want, but have trouble visualizing it and aren’t aware of the realistic cost for what they have in mind.
