Our Dayton & Cincinnati outdoor living space creations emphasize the difference is in the details!

Don’t you agree the details make the finished project more delicious?

Like many other things in life, the details can make a tremendous difference in the outcome, and, in your ultimate satisfaction and happiness. Take for example, a simple banana split; the bananas and triple scoops of ice cream certainly are delicious, but would it be as satisfying if you left out the whipped cream and sweet cherry from the top?  Outdoor living space designs, too, play by the same rules. The details of the design make your experience, and how you view the space more fulfilling. Archadeck of West Central and SW Ohio specializes in providing our customers with a detailed customer oriented design while paying attention to the intricate details that provide a true, custom, one-of-a-kind structure.

  • The details of our hardscape designs: When we design a hardscape, such as a patio, retaining wall, outdoor fireplace or even a custom fire pit, we include the “little extras” that make the addition aesthetically appealing and cohesive. For example, when designing an outdoor living combination containing a deck and patio combination. Often, the deck is rectangular or square. In order to “soften” the linear feel of the space, we will design the patio with curved, rounded edges. We also like to add a soldier or sailor course to the outer edge of many of our patios to help define the transition from the patio into the landscape. We will often introduce the use of another color into the border as well. This results in a dramatic impact aesthetically and increases the WOW factor!

  • How we “cope” with the details: When referring to “coping” with the details, we mean it in the literal sense. A little detail we often include in many of our hardscape designs, including fire places, ledges, and pillars is the use of three-dimensional coping to visually enhance our structures. Take a look at what we mean:

  • More details – Not your traditional deck:  The details don’t end with our hardscape designs. As you can clearly see, our custom deck designs often include curved, radius edging, picture framed borders, integrated seating and plants along with other intricate details you just don’t see everyday!

There are thousands of little details that go into designing and building an outdoor living  project – some that you see, and some that you don’t.  But their sum total makes up the look, feel and underlying quality of the project as a whole. There are many details that are standard in our designs – both aesthetic and structural – that come as a result of having built thousands of projects. As you can clearly see, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio knows the difference in your satisfaction and happiness for years to come lies within the details.
