Imagine your backyard possibilities with Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio!

Kettering OH 2013 dream deck projectWe all daydream about how we imagine our perfect home would be. Whether you love cooking and imagine extending and transforming your kitchen into a culinary crescendo that would make Emeril Lagasse blush, or revamping your two-car into a dream garage worthy of charging admission to enter, we ALL have a vision of improving both the interior and exterior of our homes. Many homeowners have all the right intentions when moving forward with their home improvement endeavors, however, being able to realistically imagine the “vision” is something many struggle with.

With this in mind, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has put together a pictorial of before and after images of clients we have completed projects for. Being able to see the dramatic, side-by-side imagery will help homeowners, just like yourself, imagine the endless possibilities in your own backyard!

This sunroom and deck addition in Miami Township, OH, totally transformed this home. The space is designed with year-round comfort in mind and is versatile day to evening.

This Springfield, OH, project entailed adding an upper deck to the homeowner’s existing lower deck. Not only did this provide the shade benefits they had in mind, it also allowed more use of the second story. The new deck is built using premium pressure-treated wood and is designed to accept an under deck rain carriage system, such as DrySnap, in the future.

This Washington Township, OH, screened porch addition changed the whole way these homeowner’s live outdoors and enhanced the aesthetics of their home too!  When we initially met the homeowners for the design consultation they expressed the need for a better space to utilize their time outdoors. Their only outdoor space consisted of a concrete pad which they were using as a patio, but the sun and insects prevented them from enjoying it during the afternoon and around dusk.  The design we created includes a screened room built over the backyard’s existing pad. To further the functionality of the backyard we also built an open-air paver patio off the porch.

This project in Centerville, OH, proves the power of changing an existing outdoor space for the better. These homeowner’s already enjoyed using their existing screened porch for two out of the four seasons, but felt like they were still missing out on some prime usage. With our professional installation of a EZE Breeze system of vertical sliding panels of vinyl windows backed with screens, they do get more! When the weather is right, they can slide them down for a screened in porch, and pull them right back up when it’s raining!

In 2013, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio was chosen to design and build the deck for the 2nd place winner for the Dream Backyard Makeover contest, which was sponsored by Archadeck Outdoor Living and Belgard Hardscapes. As you can see from the before and after pictures, which were part of the entry to this contest, we took this backyard from dull to dazzling!

How realistic is your outdoor living addition budget?

BudgetThe subject of budgets is an integral part of every outdoor living space project we do. It is obviously not the most glamorous or most-anticipated element that goes into planning your custom outdoor oasis, but is a necessity in ensuring the vision you have is realistic. Just as we covered in our article ” What does shopping for an outdoor living structure and a car have in common?” it’s only natural for homeowner’s to want the most “options” at the best value. The search for the “right” contractor is much like shopping for a new car — finding the best value with all the features you want within your budget.

BudgetsIt is imperative to establish a budget for your outdoor living project. Deciding how much you want to spend needs to be decided upon before we begin designing your project. This is why we inquire about your intended budget during your initial phone call because of the importance of having one in place before proceeding. We realize this is sometimes a hard decision and we make every effort to make it the opposite (easy). If you are unsure of where you need to set your budget, we can show you our portfolio and pictures to help you get an idea of what you want and what you want to spend.

Archadeck outdoor living blissOne thing is certain when it comes to outdoor living spaces: Imagining yourself having one is easy but being able to afford your expectations of that image can sometimes be difficult. This is mainly because often homeowners have a surreal expectation of what a custom outdoor living space can cost, and what they can afford. This is where our commitment to superior customer service, honesty and communication come into play. We are poised to accommodate the customer, in every way. We ensure all the groundwork is in place from your initial consultation to completion of your project which includes helping you establish a realistic budget. We also extend the utmost flexibility to our customers through a detailed materials and pricing menu, for example if one facet of your vision won’t work with your budget, then we can suggest alternatives that can bring you just as much satisfaction. We also strive to keep you in tune with scheduling and ensuring we not only meet but exceed your expectations as we plan, schedule and complete your project.

You scream, we scream, we all scream for ice cream treats created using the Big Green Egg!

In honor of July being National Ice Cream Month, we thought it only proper to spread the sweetness by sharing some of our favorite Big Green Egg ice cream treat recipesIn honor of July being National Ice Cream Month, we thought it only proper to spread the sweetness by sharing some of our favorite Big Green Egg ice cream treat recipes! In case you weren’t aware that there is a whole month set aside to celebrate this delectable, double-dipping goodness, here is a little history courtesy of the International Dairy Food Association website:

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food that is enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population. In the proclamation, President Reagan called for all people of the United States to observe these events with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

About 10.3 percent of all the milk produced by U.S. dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream, contributing significantly to the economic well-being of the nation’s dairy industry. With this in mind, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is sharing some of our favorite ice cream recipes created by the Big Green Egg.  All of these and more recipes can be found on the Big Green Egg website and Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is your local dealer for the Big Green Egg and Eggcessories.

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches

This is a great way to beat the heat while cooking on the EGG. Mix and match your favorite flavors of ice cream with your favorite type of cookie!

Ingredients

  • Your favorite cookie dough
  • Your favorite ice cream
  • Perforated Cooking Grid
  • Aluminum foil
  • Baking Stone

Instructions

  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking (with convEGGtor) at 350°F/177°C, unless otherwise specified by the cookie dough recipe. Preheat a Baking Stone on the grid of the EGG.
  • Make cookie dough as directed.
  • Wrap Perforated Cooking Grid with aluminum foil to prevent cookies from dripping through perforation. Evenly space cookie dough around the Perforated Cooking Grid.
  • Make 4 small balls with aluminum foil. Place 4 balls of foil evenly spaced on Baking Stone and place Perforated Cooking Grid on top of the foil. This allows for proper air circulation so the cookies bake evenly. It isn’t necessary, but is helpful.
  • Allow to bake for 9-11 minutes, unless otherwise specified by the cookie dough recipe.
  • Remove cookies once fully baked and allow to cool. Pair up cookies in sets of two based on relative size. Scoop your favorite type of ice cream onto one cookie and sandwich it with the other.

  • Makes 4 servings

ice cream sandwiches

A New Spin on Ice Cream Sandwiches

These Cranberry & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect combination of warm cookies from the EGG and cold ice cream for a tasty treat on a hot summer night! Recipe adapted from Canadian Lentils. For more information, visit lentils.ca.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (60 ml) dry red lentils
  • ½ cup (125 ml) butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (125 ml) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (125 ml) sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
  • 1½ cups (375 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (250 ml) old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) baking soda
  • ¼ tsp (1 ml) salt
  • ½ cup (125 ml) dried cranberries
  • 1 cup (250 ml) white chocolate chunks or chips
  • 4 cups (1 L) vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  • Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 350°F/177°C.
  • In a small saucepan of boiling water, cook the lentils for 15-20 minutes, until soft. Drain well and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt; add to the butter mixture along with the cooked lentils and stir until almost combined; add the cranberries and white chocolate and stir just until blended.
  • Drop large spoonfuls of dough a couple of inches apart on a greased baking sheet; bake on the EGG for 12-15 minutes, until pale golden around the edges and just set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, and if you have time, freeze them (this will make them more firm, and easier to spread with ice cream).
  • Remove the ice cream from the freezer and set on the countertop until slightly softened. Place a scoop of ice cream on the underside of a frozen cookie, top with a second cookie and press down so that the ice cream spreads to the edges. Place on a baking sheet and return to the freezer until frozen. Wrap in plastic wrap and return to the freezer until you are ready to serve them.
  • Makes 1 dozen sandwiches or 2 dozen cookies

Is your outdoor living space designed with your pet’s enjoyment in mind?

Dayton outdoor living with pets“The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.”
— Charles de Gaulle (former President of the French Republic)

Here at Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio, we strive to design and build outdoor living spaces that can be enjoyed by every member of your family. This includes the four-legged members and special pets that are also a huge part of your family! According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (ASPCA), it’s estimated that 70-80 million dogs and 74-96 million cats are owned in the United States. Approximately 37-47% of all households in the United States have a dog, and 30-37% have a cat. There are also millions of US households that own birds, rabbits and other unique and exotic pets.

Pet friendly outdoor living spaces encourage good healthSpending time with our pet(s) is not only relaxing, it has been shown to improve our health! An article published by WebMD points out that your dog may make you less likely to get heart disease. This is because dog owners walk more and have lower blood pressure than people who don’t have dogs. Pets can also be good for you if you already have heart problems. Studies indicate that heart attack survivors and people with serious abnormal heart rhythms who own dogs live longer than people with the same heart problems who don’t have pets. stroking, or petting, your pet can lower your blood pressure and help your body release a relaxation hormone, and it reduces levels of a stress hormone. Taking into consideration all the ways pets improve our lives, from both an emotional and physical standpoint, it only makes sense that the outside of our homes should be as conducive to spending time with them as the inside!Cat Friendly outdoor living spaces

During our design consultations, it is not uncommon to be greeted by a friendly dog or two at the door or see a cat peeking at me from around a corner or napping in a sunny spot nearby. Since most of our  clients count at least one animal as a member of their family, it only makes sense to give them some thought when you are designing your new outdoor living project. You may be surprised by exactly how many Archadeck customers incorporate pet-friendly design details into their custom outdoor space.

Dog and kid on deck

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has customized many outdoor structures to make them more pet-friendly. This includes fabricating the rails of a deck closer together to ensure pet safety, installing gates to keep pets safe and sound, pet access doors and using pet screen such as SCREENEZE.  As a SCEENEZE stocking dealer we have upgraded screening available that better resists tearing as opposed to traditional screen. Another feature we often implement into our outdoor room designs to make them more pet-friendly is using a solid kneewall rail to eliminate screens on the lower part of the porch wall, altogether. Just listen to this testimonial from our customers whom we built a screened porch with their beloved parrot in mind…

If you are in search of the perfect outdoor living space for your family, including your furry friends, contact Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio today to learn more. Our custom designs are the cat’s meow!  You can reach us at (937) 848-7040 or (513) 897-2040. You can also email us at wcohio@archadeck.net.

To add a new deck or redeck? — That is the question

The new deck complements the Tudor architecture of this home in Cincinnati, OH.When a homeowner comes to us and requests we create a new outdoor living space for them, it is sometimes possible that their existing deck can be re-decked, upgraded and in some cases even expanded upon to achieve their goal. As “America’s Deck and Porch Builder®” Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has been providing award-winning outdoor living spaces to the Miami Valley since 1990. Among our many specialties is custom designed decks. As a NARI Certified Remodeler we can often expand upon and customize what is already present in your backyard space in order to deliver you the backyard of your dreams!

Archadeck of West Central and SW Ohio improved the outdoor living area of this ranch style home.

Elaborating upon the design of your existing deck can include redecking the existing decking boards from aged wood to new, top-quality wood again, wood to a low-maintenance synthetic that is easier to care for and will outlast pressure treated wood by a long shot, adding character with a dynamic shape, expanding the size of your existing deck, railing upgrades and even a directional change in the stairs. In some cases these upgrades are possible by utilizing the substructure and footings of your existing deck.

New deck or redeck? — that is the question

Ultimately, the first step in determining if your existing deck is a good candidate for redecking is to have it evaluated by a reputable deck builder such as Archadeck. If the substructure (which is the base that the deck is built on) is in good shape, you may be able to save money and time by redecking instead of tearing down your old deck and starting from scratch with a new one. The key elements we need to evaluate to determine if your deck is a candidate will include the quality and structural integrity of the original substructure and how it has weathered over time. We will also determine If any applicable building codes have changed since the deck was originally installed, if the deck fits all the criteria required for redecking, we will make sure it complies with those new building codes as well.

Once your existing deck is deemed a good candidate for redecking, we will then work with you to help you choose the material that best fits your needs and budget. Here at Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio, we have many decking materials to choose from. We can help you decide on a wood or synthetic decking material. Synthetic materials such as composites, capstock and solid PVC are composed of elements that stabilize and protect them from UV damage. These materials also have several advantages over most species of wood. The synthetic material is much less likely to crack or chip, and are impoervious to insects such as termites. An added benefit to choosing synthetic is that it will never have to be treated or stained. We use only the highest quality synthetics on the market, such as TimberTech, Fiberon and AZEK.

Xenia, OH grill area detail with pergolaSome of our customers also opt to redeck using quality pressure treated wood or even a hardwood such as Ipe, but, if you are tired of the endless maintenance required to preserve your wood deck, a composite material may be the best answer because it is easier to maintain and lasts longer than wood.

In addition to redecking the surface of your existing deck we may also be able to upgrade your existing deck. This is where we expand your smaller deck by redecking the original space and building out from there. This prevents the cost and time associated with installing a whole new foundation, only the incremental extension. This will enable the addition of other structural amenities such as integrated bench seating, replace or upgrade your existing railing, add a pergola or covered area for shade, or even change the direction and flow of the stairs–redecking makes the perfect time to do it all!  We have a huge menu of option to help you to pick the colors, features and design options that best suit your needs. The possibilities and options are truly endless.

Let Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio Make Outdoor Living EZE!

screened porch over new composite deckAre you looking to maximize the time you can enjoy your outdoor space with a screen porch or three season room? With function and extended enjoyment in mind, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio is the area’s stocking dealer for SCREENEZE Porch Systems and we offer an array of design and screening options, to deliver just the space you have in mind.

Washington Township OH Screened Porch builderThree season porches are great for homeowners that are looking to enjoy more of the outdoor living lifestyle but less of the negatives that come along with the being “in” the outdoors– these include pollen, insects and harsh UV rays. With this system we can give you the outdoors, but better. The SCREENEZE porch screening system is a patented fixed screen system, featuring an aluminum base and a vinyl cap which are snapped together and attached to your porch or gazebo. SCREENEZE can be installed on the inside, outside, or center of your porch post and rail design.

Screen Eze screen system allows large spans and becomes almost invisible with the rails placed outside the screen.

The SCREENEZE screen system allows large spans and becomes almost invisible with the rails placed outside the screen.

This system offers an opaque siteline that will provide spectacular views into your landscape. SCEENEZE is also engineered to span longer and larger distances than traditional screening methods. Unlike traditional screen, it will not limit you to 40 square feet, but a whopping 150 square feet! With their larger screen panels you’ll be smelling the sweet aroma of your garden and feeling the gentle evening summer breezes with no worry of damaging and uncomfortable UV rays.

Interior of Washington Township screened roomEveryday life can truly get your screen porch down. We know what it’s like to have old and saggy, misshapen screens on your porch and we don’t want that to happen to you. We can easily update the look and feel of your screen porch making it brand new again. Which is guaranteed to make you excited to enjoy more time living the outdoor lifestyle. Normal everyday wear and tear can cause traditional screen to become out of shape and unsightly. There is never a need to worry about this occurring as this screen will not crinkle or sag over time, making this the perfect screen if you have young kids, pets or live in a climate where you see heavy snow.

we used a T&G pine cathedral ceiling with an open screened gable end and Velux skylights.

SCREENEZE will extend the leisure of outdoor living so we believe it’s a design must. Whether you’re looking to have a second, open and breezy living room, or just a fun hangout spot for the kids to eat lunch we know SCREENEZE is the answer for you. We can design the screen to be installed on the inside, outside or center of the structure depending on what look you like best. And this screen system can be installed on brick, concrete or wood, so whatever material you gravitate toward, we’ll be able to make it work.
