This story begins back in 1992 when Archadeck of Central GA built this stunning deck addition for these homeowners. The location of this project is in Macon close to the Rivoli Downs area of town. Back in 92’ when we originally built the deck it was for the Annual Parade of Homes event as this home was one of the featured properties.
Archadeck of Central GA returned to the property in 1996 to add a lower section to the deck where the homeowners had added a fountain.
When we were contacted by these gracious homeowners again just this year (2020), the deck was in need of a few updates. Given the age of the deck, some of the decking boards and lattice around the bottom of the deck was showing signs of wear and needed to be replaced. Additionally, the homeowners also wanted to update the existing Chippendale railing. The railing was on-trend when the deck was built, however, over time they felt like a new rail would help freshen up their beloved deck.
Since the substructure of the deck was structurally sound, Archadeck of Central GA only needed to update the decking, lattice and railing to make it look like new again! The homeowners were still very happy with the original shape of the deck, so we left the spatial area alone.
We redecked using low-maintenance TimberTech PRO Reserve decking in Antique Leather. We also rebuilt the built-in planters using the same decking. The railing was renewed using our traditional rail — with the exception of the area where the Wisteria is, we left that alone as to not obstruct its foliage and keep it looking lush. Along with the redecking and railing update, we also changed out a small area from a railing to stairs to open up the view to the landscape and surrounding ponds. We even added a new bench to one side to give them a vantage point to soak in the beauty of the property around them!
The only area where any structural change had to be made was where a tree root had lifted some of the decking underneath. The joists in this area were in good shape, so only minimal reframing was required.
As the Macon area’s most trusted deck builder, these clients know we are only a phone call away. This project is proof of the importance of choosing a professional. There is a difference between Archadeck and other local deck builders, and we call it “the Archadeck difference.” Archadeck of Central GA is a professional deck design and build company. To us, the process of designing a high-quality deck that stands the test of time is as important as building it.
