Locally owned & operated, Archadeck of Akron brings you the commitment to quality customer care of a local business, with the expertise and knowledge of an international design & build firm.
Building a deck is not as simple as it used to be. With advances in engineering and design, plus improvements in synthetic decking, there is an increased variety of material options and design features. Each deck we build is custom designed to blend seamlessly with your home and reflect your personal style. Our deck designs reflect beauty, quality and extended enjoyment where form and function combine as one.
We specialize in decks built from a wide range of materials including wooden decks such as traditional pressure-treated pine and hardwoods. We also offer low-maintenance composite and PVC decks built using high-quality synthetics like TimberTech, Trex and AZEK. We can also combine these materials to provide you with the most benefit and aesthetic within your deck space.
Wood is widely considered the traditional choice for deck building. Natural wood is still a gorgeous and sturdy choice. Archadeck of Akron uses select pressure-treated Southern Pine for most wood projects. We also offer beautiful hardwood choices for your custom wooden deck addition, such as Ipe.
Wooden decks do require regular maintenance with stain or sealant. Depending on your property, if your deck is exposed to full sun most of the day or is under the cover of a heavily wooded lot, you may need more or less maintenance. The versatility in finishes allows you to choose different stain colors each time to make your deck look brand new.
For many Akron-area homeowners don’t want the chore of staining their wooden deck each year. The good news is that if you use a low-maintenance composite or PVC material such as TimberTech or AZEK, you never have to! There are a variety of synthetic decking materials that look very similar to wood but never require staining nor any annual maintenance. The only maintenance they require is using a sponge or hose to remove anything you would remove from your indoor floor such as ketchup and food spills. Otherwise, the mud that’s tracked on along with the dirt and pollen can be removed with a garden hose or perhaps a sponge and soapy water.
In addition to reduced maintenance, synthetic decking won’t split, crack or warp. Design versatility is also a huge advantage of synthetic decking. For instance, synthetic decking can be bent and molded for stunning curved picture framing, winding inlays, and intricate patterns and designs throughout your deck. Low-maintenance suppliers provide extensive warranties, giving you peace of mind. With this much information to consider, we’ll help you weigh the cost versus the benefits to decide which decking material will work best for your home & lifestyle.
