At Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we’re proud to say we’ve been designing and building decks for homeowners throughout the NE Indiana region for more than a decade. Our goal is the same today as it was 10 years ago: to bring the best to our customers. That includes not only the best design and craftsmanship but also the best materials. When you think of decks, think of Archadeck of Fort Wayne.
The best deck design is the one we create for you, for your home. Every deck we design for a client is unique and is based on our conversations with that client about materials, size, shape, colors, amenities, and budget. We will also talk with you about how you want to use your deck. What difference will a new or replacement deck make for you and your family? What comes to mind when you think of “the deck lifestyle”? Tell us about the deck of your dreams so we can help you bring that to life.
Archadeck is known for our attention to detail and the quality of our craftsmanship. We earn that reputation with every deck we build. Deck construction has become more complex with the arrival of low-maintenance composite and synthetic decking materials. You can count on us to be up-to-date on manufacturers’ suggested installation techniques.
From traditional wood decks to the newest composite and synthetic decking materials, the choices can seem daunting. We can answer your questions and help you weigh the pros and cons including style, longevity, and costs. We want you to be completely comfortable with the deck materials you choose, including boards and railing style.
Archadeck of Fort Wayne is a wood deck builder, a composite deck builder, and a synthetic deck builder. As a deck contractor, we are proficient with all of these materials and will help you determine which is best for your deck. Some homeowners prefer wood decks and are not deterred by the maintenance chores required every year or two years to keep a wood deck looking beautiful. Others have had their fill of sanding and staining or painting a wood deck. If you assume a composite or synthetic deck will be too expensive, a new low-maintenance deck may be more affordable than you realize.
Low maintenance decks offer other benefits in addition to low maintenance. Because they are resistant to the forces that plague wood decks – like UV rays, termites, moisture, and decay – low maintenance decks last longer and look great year after year. Here are some of the wood-alternative decking brands our clients prefer:
TimberTech – TimberTech composite decking maintains its color and beauty for years without the recurring work of sanding and painting or staining. And, because it resists mildew, warping, and insects, you won’t need to replace rotting, uneven, or termite-damaged boards, saving you time and money over the life of your Fort Wayne deck. Caring for TimberTech is easier than caring for wood and will allow you to focus on maximum enjoyment instead of maximum maintenance. You can choose between 4-sided and 3-sided composite decking in an array of color options and wood-grain designs. TimberTech composite decking materials are backed by a 30-year warranty (TimberTech Pro) or a 25-year warranty (TimberTech Edge).
AZEK- AZEK synthetic deck boards are engineered to withstand the everyday things that happen on a deck. Even spilled wine, fruit punch, and hamburger grease are no match for AZEK’s stain resistance. And, since AZEK decks are scratch resistant, you won’t have to worry about marks from patio furniture or pets. For unmatched versatility, AZEK’s Vintage Collection decking boards come in three widths: narrow, standard, and wide. Available in a range of colors and wood-grain designs, AZEK decking is made with capped polymer (PVC) for the longest-lasting decking material on the market. AZEK decking boards are backed by a 50-year warranty.
Trex – Trex is one of the leaders in the composite decking industry and the inventor of wood-alternative composite decking. Trex is designed to deliver a low-maintenance, high-performance backyard retreat that can handle the outdoors – because your weekends should be spent relaxing on your deck, not repairing it. Trex offers a wide selection of colors in three price ranges and has won awards as “greenest decking brand” with 95% recycled content. Trex decking boards are backed by a 25-year warranty.
At Archadeck of Fort Wayne, we design and build decks for the way you and your family want to live outdoors. This means that amenities and details often overlooked by other deck builders command our attention when we sit down to plan and design your ideal deck space. During our consultation, we take into consideration the function(s) you wish to enjoy on your deck, the architecture of your existing home, material preference, budget, and even the subtle overlays within the surrounding landscape. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to providing you an outdoor living space that incorporates the benefits of form and function working together as one!
