It’s easy to see why homeowners in Medina, OH, are big fans of outdoor living structures including decks, patios, porches, 3-season rooms and sunrooms. Medina’s population growth over the past couple of decades represents many people who may work in a large city but don’t choose to live there. They prefer the slower pace of a smaller city where people take time to relax and enjoy their leisure time at home.
That’s where we come in! Archadeck of Akron is your Medina deck builder. We also specialize in patios, porches and other outdoor rooms. If you can relax and entertain in it or on it, we can design and build it.
At Archadeck of Akron, we custom design each project we build for our clients. We meet with you, talk about what you have in mind for your outdoor living space, hear your ideas and offer some of our own. While the construction phase is what makes the biggest impression, and the finished project speaks for itself, it all starts with a design. Type of structure, size, shape, materials, amenities – a lot goes into planning your Medina outdoor rooms and outdoor structures before we even break ground. You owe it to yourself to work with an experienced outdoor room designer, and that is Archadeck.
When you think of spending leisure time relaxing outdoors, decks come to mind. It’s true that many homeowners start with a deck as their first outdoor living space. The appeal of being able to step outside your back door and surround yourself with the open air, the sights and sounds of nature, is universal and timeless. Stress melts away with just that first step outdoors onto your new deck.
If your property allows enough space, we recommend a deck large enough to include two areas, one for lounging and one for dining. That way you don’t have to move furniture around to enjoy your deck at all times. And when your grill or smoker is that close to your outdoor dining table, life is good. Now all you have to decide is whether you want a traditional wood deck or one built with low-maintenance composite or synthetic decking materials. We can provide the information you need to make that decision.
Why feel like you need to choose between a deck or a patio? Archadeck of Akron, Medina’s patio builder, has a knack for designing and building a fabulous patio-deck combination space. Think about how this combination outdoor living space will allow you to spread out and have two different types of outdoor spaces that work well together. If you enjoy entertaining outdoors, you’ll be forever thankful that you had the foresight to add a deck and a patio combination.
Like a deck, designing a patio requires you to make some decisions about what materials you want to surround yourself with. Flagstone, bricks, pavers? Concrete patios dominated Ohio back yards for many years, but today we have so many more beautiful options. Paver patios are a favorite in the Medina area. There are so many styles, shapes and colors of pavers that half the fun is deciding which ones you want for your patio. Often a patio is part of a hardscape design that includes seating walls, a fire pit, steps with built-in safety lighting, planters and even pillars. Yes, pillars! They make a fabulous design statement at the edge of a patio.
