Have you been told by another builder that the ideal you have in your mind to upgrade your existing outdoor space isn’t possible? Maybe you have been told in order to make improvements to your deck, porch or even patio, you would be better off just tearing it down and starting anew. This was exactly what these Montgomery Village homeowners were told by multiple builders when they looked into redecking and improving their existing backyard deck. That changed once they consulted with Archadeck of Central MD…
When we initially met with the homeowners they told us that in their quest to improve their existing deck they had been told by several builders that due to the age of their deck, which was nearly 20 years old, in order to accommodate their needs and desires the deck would have to be completely torn down. As you can imagine, demolition and starting from scratch can not only interrupt your lifestyle for an extended period of time, it can also mean additional costs to the homeowner. Through our experience we realize that in many cases things aren’t always as they seem and even though a structure has some age doesn’t eliminate it as a redecking candidate. The key is to inspect the structure thoroughly to determine if it is structurally sound enough to facilitate the upgrades in mind. In the case of this Montgomery Village deck, it had aged gracefully and was deemed structurally sound enough to proceed with the project.
The two main reasons the homeowner’s wanted to redeck their existing space was #1 to upgrade to a low maintenance material which would stay beautiful without the worry of constant cleaning and sealing and #2 to have their outdoor living space better accommodate spending time outdoors with their family.
As you can see from the design renderings we prepared for these Montgomery County homeowners, and the stunning images, this project promises to fulfill all their needs and desires. In addition to redecking the entire structure with low maintenance Fiberon Pro Tect decking in Western Cedar, we also accented the deck with a border of Fiberon Pro Tect decking in Chestnut to add style and define the space. This decking is capped on three sides with a protective PermaTech surface, making it highly durable and carries a 25-year limited warranty against staining and fading.
Archadeck of Central MD also faced the planter boxes with the same decking material in order to blend and unify them with the new look of the deck. We also enhanced the convenience of keeping the plants and flowers the homeowners use within the planter boxes by installing a hose extension to the existing hose bib near the deck directly within the planter boxes for easy access. In the coming weeks ahead, we will also be adding a paver patio complete with a fire pit purchased by the homeowner just off the deck to increase the outdoor enjoyment even further!
This project serves as a good example of our expertise and knowledge of the business, which speaks volumes about the way we do business. It’s one thing to say “we build beautiful decks or we can build what you want”, but it’s quite another when a company can show you a portfolio of their work as Archadeck of Central MD can. If you’re meeting with multiple contractors to consult on your desired project be aware that not all builders will have the same opinion of what is possible or the experience or expertise to complete your project properly. Rest assured, we listen to your needs, desires and inspect the proposed structure you wish to upgrade thoroughly to explore all viable options available to you in order to bring your outdoor vision to life.
