Decks and Screened Gazebos by Archadeck, St. Louis Mo

Decks and Screened Gazebos by Archadeck, St. Louis Mo – Hardwood

It’s turning into a colorful fall season here in St. Louis, Missouri.

Baseball is winding down… football is winding up. The air is brisk and the skyline is crisp wth a backdrop of color-rich trees.

The earth-tones of autumn inspire, not only fashion and seasonal decorating, but outdoor designs too.

Outdoor living spaces such as decks, porches, screened rooms, patio enclosures, pergolas and gazebos are often designed and built with various woods:  treated wood, cedar, redwood, Ipe, or Tigerwood.  Outdoor living spaces built with wood are forever fashionable and always ‘in-style’.

As we’ve said before (and we’ll probably say it again and again) there’s nothing quite like the beauty of real wood for an outdoor space.

For some reason, wood just ‘goes’ with anything outdoors.

However new breeds of building materials have ‘come-to-town’.

Composite, vinyl and capped composite for decks, screened porches, pergolas and other backyard structures can now effectively capture the essence of authentic wood.  Bona fide authenticity.

These decking materials are found in an array of colors from warm wood-tones, to deep browns, to beautiful neutrals like weathered gray.

So maybe, just maybe, there IS something comparable to the beauty of wood after all.

Two noteworthy points:

1.  When compared to wood, composites and vinyls have lower maintenance requirements.

2.  Design-wise, ‘anything-goes’ with color and material combos for whatever style you’re craving:  classic, contemporary, traditional, rustic, elegant or casual.

So even though temperatures are rising here in St. Louis, embrace the ‘warmth’ of a myriad of ‘cool’, wood-tone colors for outdoor designs built by Archadeck. Read the rest of this entry »

Update 11/6/13:  For our recent article about composite decking, check out Composite Decking Options.

Some folks feel that there’s nothing (and I mean absolutely nothing!) that rivals the good-looks of natural wood.

Other folks… not so much.

Instead, they view wood ‘as a whole lot of work’.

And as with most things in life, there’s never one definitive ‘right’ answer to the ongoing debate about wood vs. composite.

But for the purposes of this post, let me elaborate on why composite building materials do have a place in the decking industry. Read the rest of this entry »
