Who is Archadeck of West Central & SW Ohio, and what do we do?

Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio custom designs and builds one-of-a-kind outdoor living structures and spaces for homeowners throughout the Miami Valley area. These include decks, screen rooms, sunrooms, porches, combination structures, pergolas and so much more! When we say custom, we’re referring to our customer-oriented philosophy of the personalized designing and building of your ideal outdoor living space, no matter how big or small; from a multi-component structure with all the bells and whistles to a unembellished classic design. Remember, custom doesn’t only mean extravagant designs with an unlimited budget, but it always means tailored to your personal needs and tastes to fit your budget.

We help you see your backyard potential through our custom outdoor living space designs and accoutrements that further your enjoyment!

As the Miami and Ohio Valley area’s leading designer and builder of outdoor living structures, each year we set up a vendor exhibit/booth at many of the home improvement and outdoor living trade shows and expos in our localized and surrounding area. We enjoy being a part of these events because they give us the opportunity to meet thousands of homeowners face-to-face and show them examples of our past projects, explore their backyard potential and answer all their questions about what we do and how we can help them get more enjoyment out of their backyards.

During these expos and trades shows, we encounter homeowners with a multitude of questions regarding what we do and how we do it. Some come with pictures of their existing outdoor living space or structure (or the lack there of), some pull out quick pencil sketches of what they think they want and some just stop by to dream a little, and we’re comfortable with that.

Mechanicsburg Ohio unique outdoor living designsFor the most part, the questions are typically about design capabilities, the different types of building materials we offer and of course, since we are the local authorized rep for ScreenEZE porch systemsBig Green Eggs and Casuwel outdoor furnishings; we receive a lot of interest and questions regarding these outdoor living accoutrements! As a matter of fact, our booth is designed in such a way to showcase and easily display the visual aids we use to answer almost all of these questions.

However, I must confess, after twenty-five  years servicing the Miami and Ohio Valley and surrounding areas, there are some questions we receive and things people say, which still surprise me. Please allow me to share some of our typical, and our not-so-typical questions and our answers:

Q: Your company name begins with Archadeck, so does that mean you only build decks?

Dayton and Cincinnati outdoor living expertsA: No. Decks are just one of the myriad of custom designed and built outdoor living structures and spaces we provide. We also design and build screen rooms, sunrooms, porches, spa/pool decks, gazebos, pergolas, outdoor rooms…any combination of two or more of the aforementioned,  and so much more!

Q: We love our seventies style split level home and our backyard has a few issues: we want to keep the very large oak tree which is close to the back door and the yard has a slope on the side. Would you still be able to give us a multifunction outdoor living space which includes a deck, but doesn’t look like it was just stuck onto the back of the house?

A: The new deck complements the Tudor architecture of this home in Cincinnati, OH.Absolutely! Each structure is customized according to the way you want to live outdoors and to work in the space you have. Our goal also includes creating a space that looks original to your home, no matter what the age or style of architecture your home happens to be.

Q: I know you manufacture the Archadeck low maintenance decking materials, but who does all of your building?

A: We do not manufacture anything. We do however utilize the newest and highest quality low maintenance decking materials on the market today. We also design and build wooden decks such as pressure-treated, Ipe and other hardwoods. if you prefer low maintenance decking material wood, we offer a wide selection of colors and textures by TimberTech, AZEK, Envisions and Fiberon.

When we say award-winning designs, you can be confident we’re not exaggerating

CoTy Award for NARI Contractor of the Year Miami Valley OH 2015 Fresh from our Outdoor Living Brands annual conference, awards in hand, we returned home in time to be notified of another award Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio received. We have also been honored with the Contractor of the Year Award (CotY) from our Miami Valley, OH chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and we could not be any more elated! This is especially exciting for us because this means our distinctive combination outdoor living space in Clear Creek Township, OH won two awards this year, from two different prestigious associations.

Combination outdoor living spaces are considered a favorite amongst clients and builders, so it seems only fitting that our awe-inspiring combination project in Clear Creek Township, OH was the winning design for the CotY in the category of Residential Exterior projects. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio believes an “outdoor living space combination” is achieved when the function and aesthetic assets of two or more outdoor structures are merged within the design and construction to allow them to function as one large space.

For this outdoor living space combination project, our clients expressed their desires for an outdoor living space that allowed them the best of both worlds; a covered porch perfect for dinners al fresco or an escape from inclement weather combined with a large open hardscape upon which they could entertain and bask in the sun during the day as well as enjoy evening celebrations under a star filled night sky. We custom designed and built this combination outdoor living space to fulfill, if not surpass, their outdoor enjoyment wishes as well as create a structure and space that blended seamlessly with their home’s original style. As confirmed by multiple awards for the finished space, we succeeded!!

Waynesville OH outdoor living space expertsThe details of our award-winning space include a spacious open deck and porch finished in all low-maintenance materials. For the covered porch we used Envisions decking in the warm hued “Spiced Teak” for the flooring and stairs, a rustic-inspired pine tongue & groove material for the ceiling, durable white vinyl railings and for continuity, wrapped the porch posts also in white vinyl. The porch stairs graciously step down to the large curved paver patio including an integrated custom fire pit, all of which were constructed with Oberfield Tumbled Pavers in neutral tones to enhance the decking and exterior of the home. To complete the design and provide symmetry, Archadeck Outdoor Living installed a second sconce above the door(s) that lead into the porch. This combination outdoor living space truly exemplifies the visual interpretation of poetry in motion, as you can see in the pictures below.
