Since 1980, Archadeck (a ‘spin’ on the word, ‘architect’) has specialized in decks and other outdoor living structures.

But in today’s post, let’s focus soley on decks:  design, materials, and building.

Here at Archadeck in Greater St. Louis, we start with a great custom design to complement your home, yard, lifestyle, personal choices and budget.

We’ll meet with you, at no charge, to scope out the layout of your home and backyard and to discuss your ideas for a deck addition.

By ‘putting our heads together’, Archadeck can develop visually realistic computerized design drawings of what your project design would look like.

And next comes building materials. When building a new deck or other outdoor living space, decking material is an important choice.  The type of decking you select — wood, hardwood, composite or vinyl —  will impact appearance, budgets, construction and maintenance.

Wood Deck:  For wood-lovers, nothing quite compares to ‘real’ wood.  Wood deck designs have superb structural value and durability, can be budget-friendly and offer a great return on investment.

Proper maintenance of your wood deck will ensure a long life span, with periodic cleanings and resealing every couple of years.  But for you wood-enthusiasts out there… the extra maintenance is well worth it! Wood decks in St. Louis are a popular customer choice whether it’s treated lumber, cedar or hardwoods such as Tigerwood or Ipe.

Composite Deck:

Composite decking is environmentally friendly and a desirable decking option since composites are made from recycled plastics and wood.

Composites can be especially cost-effective in the long run when you factor in their lower maintenance expenses when compared to wood.

Archadeck builds gorgeous composite decks for St. Louis homeowners in a wide array of colors and styles with products such as TimberTech, Fiberon and others.

Vinyl Deck:  As a decking material, vinyl, has had a pioneering impact on outdoor living.  Vinyl is long lasting, high quality and requires minimal maintenance. Installation guidelines are different when compared to composite or wood; therefore, an experienced and reputable contractor, such as Archadeck, is a proven resource for proper installation.

Whether you choose a deck design that is casual or elaborate… wood, composite or vinyl, Archadeck is your ‘go-to’ contractor.

With decades of experience designing and building decks throughout Greater St. Louis including St. Charles, St. Charles County and parts of Illinois, Archadeck will successfully guide you through the deck design and building process, start to finish.
