We’re Your Experienced Guide to Custom Deck Design
Building a deck is not as simple as it used to be. With advances in engineering and design, plus improvements in synthetic decking, there is an increased variety of material options. Choosing your decking material and color is the first decision, but there are many more. You must choose the size and shape of the deck, location of the stairs, and the railing type and color. From the low-maintenance simplicity of composite decks to the traditional warmth of wood decks, we will help you design your ideal structure.
To help you through these complicated choices we will use your property and lifestyle as a guide to advise you with our many years of experience. The personal service you get with Archadeck of Charlotte is top notch, from the first call until well after post-construction cleanup.
Read below to learn more about the many choices and options you have when planning your custom deck in Charlotte.
The traditional choice for deck building, wood is still a gorgeous and sturdy choice. We use pressure treated Southern Pine for most wood decks projects. We also offer Cedar, Redwood and even Mahogany or Teak. For more luxurious decking projects we might build a gorgeous Ipe deck or choose from other Brazilian hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Cumaru, Garapa or Massaranduba.
Wood decks do require regular maintenance with stain or sealant. Depending on your property, if your deck is exposed to full sun most of the day or is under the cover of a heavily wooded lot, you may need more or less maintenance. The versatility in finishes allows you to choose different stain colors each time to make your deck look brand new.
Special Deck Design Features
Deck design doesn’t end with choosing the type of decking material you’d like to use. If you are in search of a truly custom deck with special design features, our team of deck builders at Archadeck of Charlotte can help you bring your vision to life.
Customizing your deck means big design decisions in staircase position and style, railing color and type, skirting, and other custom design additions. Add traditional lattice skirting to your elevated deck to hide the underside. Choose a wide fanning staircase that opens to your large backyard or create two smaller staircases on each side for easy access to multiple areas on your property. For a unique custom design, we can even add picture framing, parting boards, and custom inlays.
Probably the hardest choice to make will be your railings. Railing choices are endless and can have a huge effect on the final look of your deck. With brands such as Deckorators and Fortress offering materials such as iron, aluminum, metal, cable and glass, traditional wood railings are being chosen less frequently.

The Ultimate Charlotte Outdoor Living Spaces
Is a deck the only outdoor living space you need? Sometimes our clients opt for additional outdoor living areas to create a multi-faceted outdoor space. Add a stone or paver patio landing for a grill or additional dining table. Building a patio around the pool and a screen porch that overlooks it is a great option for watching the kids swim. We can build decks outside an upper-level master suite for a morning coffee retreat or a spa deck with privacy wall for your hot tub area. Whatever your outdoor living needs, we will work with you on creating a space that meets or exceeds your desired lifestyle.
