One of the under appreciated values that decks bring is that you can enjoy outdoor living without being right on the ground level.  Decks also can be quite cost effective if you have a slope in your yard. Trying to build a patio when your yard has a slope requires a retaining wall which adds cost to a project. Typically retaining walls are not the most aesthetically pleasing to look at.  Decks also can be outfitted with built in benches, lighting, and planters. Take a look a some great deck designs…… or

Building decks and screen porches in the winter in Charlotte

Beautiful Custom Screen Porch in Charlotte by Archadeck

Contrary to common practice, having an outdoor living project built in the winter in Charlotte actually makes a lot of sense. As in dollar and cents…..

Building materials like wood have cyclical pricing and are always at their lowest when demand is down. The lowest cost of each year falls after Thanksgiving and extends until the beginning of February around Charlotte. In addition, most quality remodelers keep the same carpenters all year around and want to keep them working and are often willing to lower their price in order to do so. Finally, because demand for outdoor living projects like decks and screen porches is down in the winter, you actually can get your project built quickly without having the delays that invariable happen when the season hits!

Outdoor Living Design Concepts in Charlotte

To say outdoor living in Charlotte is popular is like saying it’s important to know people.  When you are considering your new or improved outdoor living space, it is important to work with someone who can help you imagine the possibilities. There are so many solutions but it is important to understand the integration of the architecture of your home along with various structures, materials, and designs. Archadeck of Charlotte has amazing 3-D software that can take your home and design any structure you can imagine so you can see it on your home prior to building it! The concepts can range from paver patios, screen porches, open porches, decks, pergolas, gazebos, outdoor fireplaces, and outdoor kitchens. Many times there are a combination of these products integrated into the design based on form and function. Start with the end in mind with your design so you can easily expand your outdoor living space as your budget allows.
