Designing a Deck that Fits Your Needs

At Archadeck of Chicagoland, we love helping our clients create the outdoor living space of their dreams.  We worked closely with this client, discussing spatial issues, their functional needs, aesthetic tastes, and their budget.  Having these elements in place helps our Design Consultants develop a design that fits the needs of their clients.   This particular client wanted to replace an existing deck with something larger and with the ability to extend the time that could be spent using it.

Low maintenance material lessens the amount of time and money spent caring for an outdoor deck.

A pergola for shade and a fireplace for warmth extends the time you can enjoy your outdoor living space.

One of the benefits of custom design is the ability to match new structures to your home.  The vinyl pergola adds a touch of elegance, yet looks as though it were built with the home.

Added shade from the pergola allows you to enjoy your outdoor living space, even when the hot sun is directly facing the space.
