Archadeck of Charlotte is one of the largest design/ build firms for outdoor living in the USA. As the largest of the over 50 Archadeck franchises in the country, we have built over 23,000 jobs over the past 28 years in the Carolinas.
Like anything else, things change over time. What are the latest decking trends? There is a continued push to low-maintenance materials such as Trex Transcends composite deck and rail, Travertine stone decks, Flagstone raised patios, etc….
We are seeing a big push for picture framing decks with accent colors and materials. People are looking more and more to make their outdoor living space more than just a deck. They prefer an integrated outdoor living oasis. Decks are a big part of this, specifically for homes that are built on crawl spaces as homeowners do not want to negotiate steps right out their back door.
When we design decks today, people want outdoor kitchens that are conveniently built right on the deck such as the one shown above. They love fire features such as this wood burning outdoor fireplace built into the ground and up to the surface of the deck, wonderful for entertaining! The travertine tile deck above is both elegant and easy on the feet.
