Deck, Pergola, Screened and Open Porch by Archadeck

The term ‘trifecta’ in horse racing lingo, is a bet or wager in which horses are predicted to win first, second and third place in that precise order.

However, ‘trifecta’ is also a term used to describe a situation where three elements join together, simultaneously.

And when it comes to outdoor spaces, Archadeck is synonymous with a trifecta.  Let me explain…

Years ago, a basic square or rectangular wood deck was the norm.

Today’s decks, however, are anything but basic.

With the latest variety of products and design innovations, deck building is synonomous with the term ‘trifecta’.  More often than not, contemporary deck structures are paired with other design elements to create an affordable, practical, customized and comfortable outdoor space that can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.

And it’s not about a ‘lavish’ home addition… adding an outdoor structure makes financial sense in light of current economics and the housing market.  Improvements can be made gradually since a deck with a porch, gazebo, pergola, underdeck or screen room can be built, all at once or in stages if you prefer.

The founder of Angie’s List, Angie Hicks, recommends decks as the third best choice for home improvement value with an 80% ROI (return on investment) for any homeowner.  A quality outdoor living space built by a trusted contractor such as Archadeck, is an economical way to expand your home’s square footage at a lower cost when compared to a full room addition.

Decks combined with other outdoor structures are a perfect way to blend inside living with outdoor living to be enjoyed now, while adding value to your home when it comes time to sell.
