Just because you’ve been waiting a long time for the right time to build, you don’t have to wait a long time for it to be built with Archadeck of Central GA

AZEK deck South Macon GA lrPerhaps you have been thinking about adding a new outdoor living space for a while– maybe a really long while, but when you decide you want to get started you don’t want to wait.  We have some clients who had been thinking about adding a deck to their home for 10 years, since they purchased the property in ‘04.  They had the perfect spot for it: the house has three exterior doors that are at the same height.  They had even taken out some trees to make way for the project.  It took us just a little over a week to build it.  The deck was completed so quickly they may still be surprised when they look out their window and see it.

The house was built in 1997 and has the look of a farmhouse; it’s in a very rural area between South Macon and Warner Robins, GA.  Two of the exterior doors led to a patio and one was oriented to the garage.  We built a very small roof, similar to a portico, to provide protection from the rain when using the door to the garage.  The owners like the look AZEK deck builder Warner Robins lrof angled boards so we created a traditional Archadeck angled deck.  Angled decks have superior stability and provide subtle visual cues between changes in elevation.  They chose AZEK PVC decking in the Redland Rose color.  AZEK is impervious to moisture and insects and has terrific durability.

The owners selected wooden rail posts with white metal pickets in Fortress Iron and AZEK decking for the rail caps.  In the past, iron railings were often custom made in local shops, were expensive and took time to fabricate to order.  Fortress offers the look of custom railings at a fraction of the cost.  They are extremely durable and allow a superior view to the yard beyond.  This will be especially desirable if the owners decide to add the pool they are considering in the future.  The AZEK rail caps visually integrate the railing to the deck flooring.

Warner Robins AZEK deck lrThe house also has a balcony above the deck.  We built around the balcony supports; they remain undisturbed.  Since the deck is low to the ground, we decided not to use skirting on this project.  There are nice wide steps on the front which can be used for benches to enjoy the view.  We are proud to be the Macon deck builder chosen to create this great area where this family can sit, entertain and eat outside.  Instead of taking three steps from their home onto the ground, our clients now exit to a lovely outdoor living space designed to their specifications.

We are the composite deck builder which will identify the best structures and materials to create the perfect outdoor living space just for you.

Little things mean a whole lot on this AZEK deck and pergola in Macon GA

pool side deck and pergola-macon GATake a look at this deck and pergola in Macon GA. The stairs that flank either side of the deck previously went across the entire deck. That didn’t provide enough room for the family to fit their furniture and move comfortably around it. By splitting the stairs and extending the deck over that area provided the right amount of space for the eating area. Two feet doesn’t seem like a lot but it makes a huge difference when expanding an outdoor area to better fit the furniture and traffic on the space.

The next thing the family wanted was some shade on the area. Pergolas are unique in that their designs can vary to allow a small amount of sun protection to providing a good deal of sun protection. The orientation of the pergola to the sun is one way to provide sun protection. In addition, the orientation of the joists and the distance of the lathes helps determine the amount of sun protection.

Pergola with sun shade screen-macon GAThis family decided to use a product called SunScreen by Phifer. This screen provides visibility while providing UV protection at the same time. The area covered with SunScreen can truly feel 5-10 degrees cooler. In addition, we installed a fan under the pergola to keep the air moving.

The surface of the project was re-decked using AZEK low-maintenance decking. AZEK is a solid PVC that provides ultra low maintenance. Since the existing deck was structurally sound, we were able to re-surface or re-deck the existing deck.

With this Macon-area deck, 2 extra feet of deck space and a thin cover over the pergola made a huge difference.
