Replacing Your Fairlawn Deck?

If your Fairlawn, OH, home has a wood deck, after about 10-15 years you’ll see the time has come to replace it. There are several options to consider, so it’s extremely important to consult with the deck-building experts at Archadeck of Akron. To start, you’ll need to decide whether you want your new deck built with wood or one of the newer composite or synthetic decking materials. These wood alternatives have been on the market long enough that they have been improved several times over. Manufacturers are still developing new technologies in this industry. Information you may have gathered in the past about these materials could very well be out of date.

Is a Bigger Deck a Better Deck?

Many homeowners would automatically say “Yes!” to this question, but as your Fairlawn deck builder we say, “It depends!” For example, synthetic and composite decking materials such as AZEK and TimberTech are more expensive than wood. If moving to the low-maintenance composite materials is important to you, expanding the size of your deck may be cost-prohibitive. On the other hand, if a bigger deck is what you really want, then staying with wood can make that big deck more affordable. Just be aware that wood decks don’t have the longevity offered by the wood-alternative decking materials available today.

Do You See an Exotic Hardwood in Your Deck’s Future?

While pressure-treated pine is a common decking material, it’s not the only wood option. Fairlawn homeowners may want to consider exotic hardwoods, too. Ipe, Tigerwood, Cumaru and Garapa are extremely durable and beautiful options for wood decks. Let us know if you’re interested in learning more about these hardwoods for your new deck.

Adding a Porch or Patio to Your Fairlawn, OH, Home

Many homeowners decide, after years of having a deck as their only outdoor living structure, that they need a protected outdoor space. Porches have stood the test of time! Whether you want the extra protection provided by a screened porch, or just the covered space offered by an open porch, we can design a porch to suit your family’s needs.

If you already have a screened porch or open porch, you may feel the time has come to add a patio to your outdoor living space. A patio can update the look of your home. And, when you add a patio with a porch, you have the best of both worlds – a porch roof when you want it, and an open patio when you want to feel closer to the sky! Parties you schedule on the patio can easily be moved onto the porch if rain moves in unexpectedly.

 

Today’s Amazing Patio Materials – How Will You Choose?

As your Fairlawn, OH, patio builder, we are familiar with the various pavers, stones and bricks favored by Ohio homeowners for their new patios. As with decking materials, Archadeck of Akron can walk you through the options for patios today. Many Summit County homeowners prefer pavers because of their uniformity and the many styles available. With so many shapes and colors offered by paver manufacturers, it can be hard to narrow down your choices!

Everyone Loves Fire Pits and Outdoor Fireplaces

The hypnotic allure of a fire, whether it’s wood or gas, never fails. From the youngest tot to the most laid-back elder, everyone is drawn to outdoor fire features. Paver companies offer matching materials for building a custom fire pit or outdoor fireplace at your home, so aesthetically a fire feature can complement a paver patio perfectly.

The Era of the Combination Outdoor Living Space Has Arrived

Porches and patios go together like decks and patios – and like porches and decks! Archadeck of Akron can help you mix and match these structures in a way that makes the most of the outdoor living space you have available at your home. Whether you have a large lot or one that’s more compact, your Archadeck design consultant can show you ways to configure the structures you want in the space that you have available.

We can also help you select decking materials that complement the patio materials you’ve selected, or vice versa. Sometimes the options can be overwhelming! Our job is to make the process easier for you! Our deck and patio designers have years of experience working with homeowners to help you make these choices.
