Marietta GA deck by Archadeck of Greater Atlanta
A beautiful backyard doesn’t happen overnight. It takes careful planning and design for everything to come together as one. Having a beautiful and functional backyard works like a carefully planned outfit for a special occasion. Let’s say you need to put together a fabulous ensemble for a black-tie event only to realize you forgot the right shoes. This is the same as putting together out your outdoor living space. Leaving a crucial element of the package off of your outdoor living design can affect the way the entire space functions. Unfortunately it happens frequently in outdoor design. A homeowner will plan everything to the smallest detail and realize during the project they overlooked a crucial element of the outdoor area they are trying to improve upon. That is exactly what happened in the case of these Marietta, GA homeowners when they were in the midst of their large backyard renovation and realized in the middle of the project their deck was in dire need of a facelift.
The homeowners knew they wanted to use composite or PVC for their expansion and re-decking. The rest of their backyard renovations included a new pool and large paver deckscape which were already underway. After carefully considering many composite and PVC choices they decided to use Gossen PVC decking. This PVC decking carries a lifetime warranty. This PVC decking is constructed from 100% solid core cellular PVC and is impervious to staining, warping, cracking, splintering, mold and mildew, as well as contraction and expansion from the heat and freezing conditions. Gossen PVC decking will not absorb water which makes it perfect for use on decks around pools and other water features. The only maintenance these homeowners will have to worry about is a simple, annual soap and water cleanup to remove dirt and grime.
They chose the Spanish Walnut color that Gossen offers which mimics the look of exotic hardwoods with its rich multi shaded fine wood graining. The homeowners will be getting a new and improved deck that will give them the best of both worlds – a gorgeous PVC deck with the look of real wood without the headaches of painting or staining. They also won’t have to worry about years of wet feet coming into contact with their PVC deck because water will not degrade the PVC decking.
Following a careful inspection of the existing deck, Archadeck of Greater Atlanta designed and engineered a plan to expand and re-deck the existing deck without adding to the profile or the thickness of the deck’s outer band. We began the project by removing several 6×6 joists that were impeding the view from under the deck but without taking the deck’s initial design out of balance. The homeowners have a finished basement with a drywall ceiling which has an air conditioning soffit which we did not want to intrude upon so we left that part of the deck free standing.
After all the initial existing structural and design elements were addressed we began construction on this stunning deck expansion and re-decking by coordinating our schedule with that of the pool contractor. The homeowners were impressed with our ability to deliver a great project by our coordination efforts and getting in and out in such a timely manner. In doing this we were also able to help the pool contractor wrap up their project in a timely fashion as well. Organization such as this is achieved through our careful planning and expert and quality-focused Job Process Methodology (JPM), which ensures every project Archadeck of Greater Atlanta takes on progresses smoothly and on schedule.
The homeowners chose black round metal balusters with an anodized painting process along with Gossen caprail for low maintenance materials throughout. The entire backyard ensemble is topped off by a 10 light low-voltage outdoor lighting system that enhances the deck with lights placed on the posts and stairs. The wiring was carefully done so no wires would be visible to the naked eye.
