Decks, Porches, Patios – It All Starts With a Design …

At Archadeck of Akron, our mission is to design and build the perfect outdoor living structures for your family to enjoy. When we first meet with clients, they tend to focus on the “build” part of that mission and may overlook the importance of the “design” phase. The decisions made during the design process will determine everything that happens during the construction phase. Ultimately, your early design decisions will determine the look and feel of your new outdoor living space.

We will guide you through all of the design decisions you need to make. While we will make you aware of the various materials available and suggest materials that go together well, the decisions are yours. These days it seems like new materials enter the marketplace every year! Your Archadeck design consultant can answer all of your questions about design and materials. We want you to be 100% thrilled with the results!

Your Hartville, OH, Deck Builder

If your Hartville, OH, home doesn’t have a deck, that is often a great place to start when planning your outdoor living space. As the premier Hartville area deck builder, we have guided many homeowners through the deck-building process.

To borrow a cliché, sometimes homeowners beginning this process “don’t know what they don’t know”! You may have heard conflicting things about composite and synthetic alternatives to wooden decking boards. Wood is the deck building material that’s been around the longest, and many homeowners still prefer to have decks built of natural wood.

Even if you’re interested in learning about alternative materials, don’t dismiss wood just because there are newer materials on the market. We can help you weigh the pros and cons of the materials available – including price differences and expected longevity.

When You Already Have a Deck and Want to Expand

If you enjoy entertaining outdoors, you may find you’ve outgrown your deck! Adding a second outdoor living structure to your existing deck gives your guests plenty of room to move around and mingle. Enlarging your outdoor living space also allows you to set up different zones with a dining table in one area and lounging furniture in another.

We don’t have a standard, one-size-fits-all recommendation for homeowners who want to expand beyond a basic deck. Your design depends on how you want to use your outdoor living space. At Archadeck of Akron, we believe every family is unique and every home is unique. That’s why the outdoor living areas we build are custom-designed for each client’s home.


We’re Also Your Hartville, OH, Patio Builder!

Some homeowners think of patios as alternatives to decks, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Decks and patios just feel different, and many of our Hartville clients enjoy having a deck with steps leading to an adjacent patio. The way you furnish these two “outdoor rooms” determines how they’ll be used. You can design the patio to serve as an extension of your deck – or not! It’s up to you.

When you’re exploring patio possibilities, look to Archadeck of Akron for guidance with regard to size, shape and materials for your custom Hartville patio. We can show you pavers, bricks and stone options for your patio surface. You’ll want to consider retaining walls and bench seating – and everyone’s favorite, the fire pit. If you’re undecided about adding a fire feature to your patio at this time, we can design it with enough space in one section to add a fire pit later. We can also design your patio so you have adjacent space for a custom outdoor fireplace in the future. Fun!!

Screened Porch or Open Porch? Let Your Hartville Porch Designer Help You Decide!

Stark County homeowners value porches because of the protection they provide. A covered porch offers refuge from rain and the sun’s harmful UV rays. A covered porch also offers a place to hang lights and a ceiling fan. Sometimes stirring up the breeze is all you need to create the perfect outdoor spot on a warm day.

If you have mosquitoes or other insects in the summer, a screened porch can provide additional protection. When you need screens on your porch, you REALLY need them. Let us show you the types of screening you can consider for your screened porch. Some screens are sturdier and less likely to be damaged by rambunctious children or pets. Some screens offer extra protection from glare, and some provide more privacy than others. Archadeck of Akron is your best resource when it comes to screened porch designs!

The Combination Outdoor Living Space

“Combination” is the term we use when a homeowner wants two or more outdoor living structures designed to work together. In our design consultation we’ll look at how traffic – family and guests – will flow from area one to the other for the best use of space. A combination outdoor living space could be a deck with adjoining patio, a porch leading to a deck or patio or all three of these structures together. Don’t forget to consider amenities such as a fire pit, outdoor fireplace or pergola. You can mix and match any or all of these structures to create the perfect outdoor space for your family. Archadeck of Akron is standing ready to help you make the most of the outdoor space at your home.
