Chesterfield Decks by Archadeck in St. Louis Mo

Elevated Cedar Deck and Cedar Pergola in Chesterfield, Mo by Archadeck

The first two decisions for planning a backyard deck include the initial design itself and then, the material selection.

A custom deck design should complement  your existing home’s structure and your backyard’s space while considering your lifestyle, personal preferences and budget.

Next, primary decking materials can be selected because these will influence aesthetics, maintenance requirements and price.

Material alternatives are: natural woods and hardwoods or a host of man-made decking materials — composite, capped composite or vinyl.

So let’s look more closely at the logic underlying a deck design, by Archadeck, for a beautiful home located in Chesterfield, Missouri in St. Louis West County.

An elevated deck design was selected.  The design extends the length of the home, maximizing an awesome scenic view.

The deck provides multiple entry points, from inside to out.

A matching shade pergola adjoins the deck, adding cool comfort and style.

Coordinating rails create a traditional and uniform look; however, slender black metal balusters add a contemporary touch.

An open-air, bump-out space was constructed as an integral part of the deck.  This particular deck-space was built for grilling and sunning.

Natural cedar was selected for the deck, pergola and railing as a perfect complement to the setting and architecture of the home.

Cedar has a unique and gorgeous visual appeal; it is naturally durable and resistant to insect damage and rot.  In addition, cedar has ‘stood the test of time’ as a building product for outdoor living spaces.

With its distinctive beauty and moderate price-range, cedar is an unbeatable choice among wood decking and a favorite here in the St. Louis area.
