Archadeck of Birmingham's Wet Weather Days Bring Construction Delays

Instead of asking “How’s life been treating you lately?” we’ll ask it like this: “How’s the weather been treating YOUR outdoor construction project lately?” Specifically, your outdoor living project. Perhaps one that Archadeck of Birmingham is building for you?

Archadeck of Birmingham customers are frustrated that afternoon thunderstorms are wreaking havoc on the construction schedule for their outdoor living projects. The screened porch, deck or patio they had expected to be completed by now is not finished yet. Why, why, why?

We share your frustration and wish we could handle the weather as just another obstacle to be overcome, but we can’t. It’s Mother Nature, and she will not be handled.

The Weather IS What the Weather IS

You know the saying, The grass is always greener on the other side? If you have rain every single day, the grass is going to be greener on your side, too, and that is certainly the case here in the Birmingham area. Every. Single. Day. And we aren’t just having rain, but big ol’ thunderstorms that send everyone running for cover.

We knew a woman who used to laugh at people scurrying to get out of the rain. She always said, “You’re not sugar. You won’t melt.” The problem is, with these thunderstorms it’s not about personal comfort, it’s about safety.

An article posted recently on AlabamaNewsCenter.com reminds us that the weather here is pretty much the same from June through August and even into mid-September. "Hot and humid with scattered afternoon storms” is correct 95 percent of the time. If you happen to be in the spot where the thunderstorms hit—usually in the afternoon—you may experience a brief but intense period of dangerous lightning and damaging winds called “wet microbursts.” They last just a few minutes, but during those minutes wind speed can be greater than 60 mph, enough to damage trees and power lines.

It’s true we didn’t need to tell you what the weather has been like in the Birmingham area lately. You know because it affects you, too.

Schedule and Re-Schedule, It’s the Best We Can Do

The reason we mention the weather is to acknowledge—and make you aware, if you’re not already—that Archadeck of Birmingham IS behind schedule at this time. Not only does that affect the clients whose projects we are building right now, it also affects those who are scheduled to come after them. It’s the proverbial domino effect.

We are doing what we can to move things along, but you must be aware that we cannot control or mitigate weather-related construction delays. For example, when one of these storms hits our job site, our crew rushes to cover work in progress and to secure materials and equipment including power tools. We don’t send a crew home because it’s storming. Since we all know the storm will pass fairly quickly, the crew waits for it to clear, and then they jump back into the job. There is still a delay while they uncover what they just covered, etc., before they can swing back into full building mode.

Thunderstorms with lightning and wet microbursts are hazardous. We take the safety of our crews seriously—and the safety of your property, as well, because unsecured equipment and materials could do some damage in 60-mph winds.

The crew doesn’t get advance notice of a storm bearing down. These summer afternoon thunderstorms move so erratically it’s hard for the meteorologists to predict where they will strike. Once the storm passes, it still takes time to set everything back up and get going again—turning a day’s work into a day and a half.

We Share the Same Goal: The Outdoor Living Space You’ve Been Waiting For

As a company that derives joy from designing and building outdoor living projects our clients LOVE, we understand your excitement. Of course, you are eager for your Birmingham deck, porch or patio project to be completed so you can start enjoying it. When we first give you a construction schedule, you know bad weather could be a factor, but until it happens to you, it’s not part of your reality.

We appreciate your patience as we get through these next several weeks of continuing scattered afternoon storms. We share your frustration, and we want your project to be completed just as much as you do.

Now, thinking ahead to those crisp fall days with no clouds in sight, what outdoor living project can we build for you (once we get back on schedule)? Call for a free design consultation at (205) 970-0121 or email us or email us at [email protected].

Don't Be Daunted By The BIG Outdoor Living Projects You See On Our Website

If your heart is telling you that you’d prefer a smaller scale outdoor living space, then by George, it’s time to stop,and listen. Very often we work with homeowners who want to go smaller rather than bigger when it comes to their outdoor living space. As the premier Birmingham-area deck and porch builder, Archadeck of Birmingham will fully support you in this decision.

You are probably familiar with the old saying bigger is better, right? As Americans, we generally assume this old saying rings true — hence our affinity for bigger cars, houses and yes, super size fries. But the old saying of bigger is better is not the case for everyone. The reasoning behind building bigger decks and outdoor living spaces is simple. It is because homeowners crave a transference of the comforts and function they have in their interior living space, outdoors. However, if the scale of the project is not in proportion with the home it is being used on, or alongside, then it certainly doesn’t make sense — after all, it just wouldn’t make sense to build a 1200 foot deck onto a 1200 foot home!

As a homeowner looking for a custom outdoor living design and build company, perusing our website photo galleries may make you feel like we only build BIG outdoor living spaces. As the economy has improved over the last few years, building projects have generally increased in size, scope, and level of specialization, including the introduction of many new amenities and materials. Decking, porch materials, hardscapes and electrical components are just a few of the areas that have all changed dramatically in the last decade. With this in mind, building a BIGGER outdoor structure is not always the best option for many Birmingham homeowners. Outdoor living structures should compliment the scale and proportion of your home, lifestyle needs and budget.

Here at Archadeck of Birmingham. we don’t just build, we design and build outdoor living spaces. To design, we first listen to you, the homeowner, as you describe the space you have in mind. We will never try to talk you into something bigger or fancier than you want or need. On the other end of the spectrum, if you are only seeking a repair for your deck, porch or outdoor living structure, Archaeck is not a repair company.

Archadeck of Birmingham pours the same level of expertise and level of specialization into every project we build — both large and small. Whether it is a singular traditional pressure-treated wooden deck, cedar pergola or a full-on outdoor living combination space, we will professionally design and build the Birmingham-area outdoor living space you’ve always wanted.

6 Reasons Fall is the Best Time to Build a Screened Porch in Birmingham, AL

As summer is coming to an end, you might be thinking of putting off your outdoor living project until spring. Why wait? Now is the perfect time to create a screened-in porch or three-season room for your home. Since starting the process now will result in an autumn or winter building schedule, you’ll be able to enjoy your new outdoor space at the first opportunity the weather allows. And we all love those occasional winter and early-spring days when the afternoons feel like full-on spring! There are many perks to building in the fall:

1. Cost Savings Before the 2019 Price Increases on Building Materials

We always recommend building an outdoor living project before the end of the year because you’ll benefit from the current year’s prices that way. Building materials historically increase in price just after the first of the year as a reflection of rising energy and labor costs. Currently, lumber prices are already up because of U.S. tariffs on Canadian lumber. We can’t predict what will happen in the lumber market between now and December. It’s a safe bet that if you get on our calendar now to start your project in the fall, it will cost less than if you wait until spring.

2. Be Ready for Spring Weather

Wouldn’t it be great to have your new cedar porch or three-season room completely finished before spring weather arrives? While spring seems a long way off, we must consider the potential for construction delays from rainy weather, hold-ups with building permits or inspections and other factors beyond our control. In addition, Archadeck of Birmingham—like all reputable builders—usually has a bit of a lead time before we can start on a new project. The first step is to meet with us soon for a design consultation so we can put your project on our calendar for this fall or winter. If you wait to start the process in the spring, you may not be able to enjoy your new outdoor living space until late spring or early summer. Time’s a-wastin’!

3. Fall is a Great Time to use Your Screened-in Porch

The sooner we start designing and building your porch, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy it. If all goes well—without those delays we cannot predict or control—you may have your project completed before fall turns into winter. Here in Birmingham, fall is one of the most comfortable seasons temperature-wise with lower humidity, cooler days and crisp nights. Autumn can be downright glorious around here—a great time to enjoy a porch whether it’s a screened porch or open (covered) porch.

4. Consider Eze-Breeze Windows for Winter Use & Pollen Protection

If you’re considering a 3-season room, you’ll have windows to close when it gets cold, so what are you waiting for? We love the Eze-Breeze convertible 4-track window system that turns a screened porch into a 3-season room. When the weather is nice, you can open 75% of the windows at once to reveal screens. When it’s rainy, cold or pollen season, you can close all of the windows to preserve indoor comfort and keep the pollen outside where it belongs. That means if you have your new outdoor room built before winter, you can let the fresh air in when you want it and keep it out when you don’t. With Eze-Breeze windows you’ll use your porch more days out of the year, not just this year but every year!

5. Outdoor Heaters & Fireplaces

There’s something extra cozy about using an outdoor heater or fireplace on a screened porch during our mild Alabama winters. That’s right, a fireplace! If you haven’t thought about including an outdoor fireplace on your screened porch, it’s something to consider—either a gas burning or wood burning fireplace. Outdoor heaters can create a cozy outdoor room, too. Today’s outdoor heaters are safer and more affordable than ever.

6. Landscape Replacement

Ask any landscaper … letting your lawn recover during its dormant season can help to give you a prettier yard when spring arrives. Why do we mention this? Because while we do our best to minimize the impact of our construction activity on your lawn, most outdoor home improvement projects do necessitate some amount of repair work there. If you choose to have your porch built in the fall, you can use the cooler seasons to get your landscape back in shape by spring.

What outdoor living project have you been planning for next spring? Archadeck of Birmingham would like to design and build your new screened porch, cedar porch, open porch or three-season room this fall so you can enjoy it by spring.

Trending Barn Doors Are Everywhere Including This Birmingham Screened Porch

With the exploding popularity of barn doors as design elements, we knew it wouldn’t be long before we were using them in our designs for Birmingham outdoor living projects. Sure enough, here we go— Archadeck of Birmingham’s first project using these trendy sliding barn doors.

These doors are so practical, it’s no wonder they’re catching on in Birmingham and everywhere. Visually they’re dynamic and attention-getting, yes, but they are also very functional.

The project shown here is an entire screened wall that we installed in a breezeway between the house and the garage. In effect, we created a screened porch out of a breezeway. The screened wall was made using a custom wooden barn door as the sliding panel in the center. Picture a barn door where the center wood panel is replaced with screen. All of the openings you see here are screens, not glass, even the lower ones below the railing.

The framing for the screens and the barn door panel was custom made for this space using 6″×6″ pressure-treated wood posts. These Cox structural pre-manufactured wood posts are great for projects like this that are painted instead of stained. These sturdy posts won’t move or warp.

The tell-tale barn door hardware above the center panels lets you know there is a sliding door here. The left center panel is stationary, and the right center panel slides to the left to reveal a doorway to the outside. The door has an insert of fiberglass screen with a white aluminum frame. The homeowner painted the wood to match the white aluminum.

What was once a Birmingham covered porch is now a screened porch with a sliding barn door. It’s a perfect example of taking a design trend—barn doors—and customizing it to make it work for what you need—a sliding door to your screened porch. It looks simple enough, but it’s actually a huge design statement.

This sweet project is also an example of some of the smaller projects we do. Archadeck of Birmingham is always interested in the smaller projects as well as the large ones. If seeing photos of our big projects gives you the impression that’s all we do, please don’t hesitate to call and ask about any small outdoor living project you have in mind.

Archadeck of Birmingham would like to design and build your outdoor living space whether your design preferences lean toward trendy or traditional. Call for a free design consultation at (205) 970-0121 or email us at [email protected].

Archadeck of Birmingham Creates At-Home Oasis for Mountain Brook, AL, Homeowners

If you look up “oasis” in the dictionary, you might find a picture of this home’s exquisite pool deck—actually, it’s several decks—and pergola we recently completed in Mountain Brook, AL.

First, you have to love a home that has an outdoor living space designed so that you can step through your glass doors directly onto your pool deck. How convenient! In this case, the pool deck meets the home’s back doors (in the center section) on both sides of the pool.

The pool is an inground above ground pool, sometimes called a semi-inground pool, made with beautiful Italian tile. We built a free-standing deck around the pool and extended the deck opposite the house to create a lounge area under a large pergola. Archadeck of Birmingham built the deck with pressure-treated pine and the pergola with cedar. The railing, which extends the length of the deck and the pergola, is all aluminum.

So you can get a sense of the size of this project, the pool is 17’-9″×51′. The pergola is 12′×29′. There are decks, each 12′×30′, on either side of the pool where the house extends beyond the center section. The deck also wraps around both sides of the home to create a 4′×60′ walkway along each side. Finally, we built a 15′×24′ deck on the side of the home not pictured here. The entire project is over 2,700 sq. feet of outdoor living bliss with the walkways unifying the space. For the pergola posts, which are cedar, we used 10×10′s instead of the typical 4×4′s or 4×6′s to give the pergola a really beefy appeal.

For comfort, ambiance and safety, we incorporated more than a few electrical features throughout the structure: sconces, spotlights, fans and lights on the steps leading up to the deck.

If you needed one more thing to convince you this home, with its multiple decks-within-a-deck, is paradise itself, then we will tell you that the home backs up to a beautiful golf course.

While we can’t build you a golf course, Archadeck of Birmingham would like to design and build the perfect oasis at your home. Call for a free design consultation at (205) 970-0121 or email us at [email protected].

Birmingham Homeowners Trust Archadeck of Birmingham to Bring Their Outdoor Lifestyle Vision to Life

Your design sensibilities don’t change when you go outdoors, so why shouldn’t you design your deck the way you design your home’s interior rooms? These Birmingham, AL, homeowners found that Archadeck of Birmingham supported their design choices 100% for this low-maintenance, multi-level deck project with several remarkable amenities.

For their decking boards, the homeowners selected low-maintenance TimberTech Tropicals composite decking in Amazon Mist and a striking deck railing system with an urban retro feel. The railings are from TimberTech’s Evolutions Rail Contemporary line. The homeowners selected black low-maintenance posts and rail caps with see-through stainless steel cable infill instead of the traditional balusters or pickets. Looking through the railings, the cables are barely visible, so anyone on the deck has an unobstructed view of the yard and surrounding foliage.

And the bed swing! The custom cedar bed swing is a work of art set apart on its own level of the deck and suspended from a magnificent, pergola-like cedar frame. This bed swing makes a bold statement about the way these homeowners prioritize relaxation!

To obscure the neighbors’ view of their private outdoor space, the homeowners asked for a substantive privacy screen. We built the privacy screen of cedar to echo the cedar bed swing and its frame and to tie the two sections of the deck together. The overlapping cedar boards provide strong visual interest that says, look at this beautiful wall, rather than, see how we’re blocking the neighbors’ view.

A wonderful feature not visible in these photos is a wood-burning fire pit in the center of the deck’s seating area. Archadeck of Birmingham designed and built a recess in the middle of the deck to accommodate the homeowners’ metal fire pit. We imagine the homeowners and their friends will spend many an evening on this deck sharing good times and gazing into the hypnotic flames.

The finished deck project is exquisite, multi-textured and endlessly inviting on several levels (pun intended). The homeowners are pleased that their vision coupled with Archadeck of Birmingham’s design and seamless execution has resulted in an outdoor space that functions as an extension of their home. With emphasis on a low-maintenance lifestyle, relaxation and comfort, this Birmingham deck with privacy screen, fire pit and bed swing may just give you some outdoor lifestyle ideas of your own!

Composite or Wood Deck? At Archadeck of Birmingham, We Want to Help You Select Materials That are Right for You

Picture your two outstretched hands, palms up and slightly cupped, weighing the differences. Left, or right? Ask yourself these two questions: Wood deck or synthetic materials? Composite or natural wood? Will the contents of one hand outweigh the contents of the other? Which selection is going to come out the winner?

Archadeck of Birmingham is here to help you work through this decision as you get ready to build a deck or a combination deck and porch outdoor living space. We know it’s a hard decision. While it’s one we hear about and talk about almost every day, as your Birmingham deck builder, we know it could be a new decision for you, the homeowner. Stop for a moment and think about these questions.

How much do you know about composite and synthetic decking?
How much do you know about wood decks?
What kinds of decks do your friends have?
What are their experiences with their decks?
Have you owned a deck before, or will this be your first one?

WHAT IS SYNTHETIC OR COMPOSITE DECKING?

These two words are sometimes used interchangeably, but there can be differences.

• Purely synthetic decking is made of PVC. AZEK makes synthetic decking boards and railing systems, probably the most durable of all decking products on the market.

• When people refer to composite decking, they are usually referring to products made by AZEK and TimberTech, among others. Composites are synthetic but not made of PVC. Composite decking boards are formed from a mixture of plastic and wood fibers. Some of these manufacturers also produce a composite board that is capped on three or four sides. The cap, or shell, provides an extra layer of protection and durability. These boards are called capstock and are usually the most expensive composite decking products.

• While all synthetics and composites are more expensive than pressure-treated wood, several of the composite manufacturers offer a few different product lines at different price points. Some composite decking is less expensive than some other composite decking.

• The technology for producing composite and synthetic decking materials is constantly improving. Newer product lines may look more “like wood” — with wood-like grain, texture and streaking — than older ones. You can get more information from the various manufacturers’ websites about their newer product lines.

THE DIFFERENCES: SYNTHETICS/COMPOSITES VS. WOOD DECKS

Wood Decks (Pressure-Treated Pine) — Pros and Cons

Synthetic/Composite Decks — Pros and Cons

HOW DO YOU DECIDE? SYNTHETICS/COMPOSITES VS. WOOD DECKS

Here are some questions to help you decide:

1. Which type of material do you prefer to look at and touch? If you have a strong preference for the aesthetics of one type of deck over another, and price is not an issue, that preference might supply your answer. Select the decking material that looks and feels the best to you. For some people that will be wood; for others it will be synthetics. Remember, this applies if price is not an issue. That means if you prefer wood decks, you can afford to pay someone to handle the annual maintenance.

2. How do you feel about the annual chores of wood deck maintenance, including sanding, staining and sealing? If you don’t want to spend your valuable free time on these chores, can you afford to pay someone else to do the work?

3. How long do you plan to stay in your current home? A general rule of thumb is that if you’re going to be in your current home for five years or more, a synthetic/composite deck can be a wise investment. You will recoup much of the cost of a composite deck in what you will save on maintenance costs and time spent working on the upkeep of a pressure-treated wood deck.

From Hoover, AL, to Brook Highland and all of Birmingham, Outdoor Living Spaces are for Everyone

YOU deserve the biggest and best outdoor living space you want. It doesn’t matter whether you want to enjoy it with bunches of other people or if it’s all just for you. Now and then we encounter someone holding the preconceived notion that a deluxe outdoor living space is just for families or just for entertaining lots of guests. In contrast, Archadeck of Birmingham believes an outdoor living space is just for anyone, for whatever reason, whenever.

Today we’re looking at two different outdoor living spaces that illustrate how Archadeck of Birmingham custom designs each and every outdoor living space we build for the needs of one specific client. No two clients are alike, and no two outdoor living spaces are exactly alike, either. That’s how you know, working with us, you’ll get the space you’ve been dreaming of.

Deck time is playtime in Hoover, AL

Wouldn’t it be fun if your porch and deck doubled as a playground? If you have kids who love to play outdoors, and you enjoy being outdoors with them, then this “playground” in the Sulphur Springs area of Hoover, AL, is for you. It’s an elevated screened porch and deck combination with a couple of unique features. First, they have a plastic tunnel slide that starts on the deck and ends at ground level near the foot of the deck stairs. Sorry, no adults allowed on the slide! Children only!! Then, for more fun, they installed two swings hanging from the lowest deck beam. (Adults, if you’re very well behaved, you may swing.) The swings are literally under the deck.

Archadeck of Birmingham designed the screened porch and deck combination around the tunnel slide the homeowners had purchased. We know what’s important here! The large screen porch is built of pressure-treated wood, while the deck is made of low-maintenance TimberTech decking. The clients chose a low-maintenance composite material for the deck since it will be uncovered and exposed to the elements.

Originally the deck was designed to be the same level as the porch, but to make the slide work we lowered the deck and installed another landing to accommodate the specifications of the slide. We will do whatever it takes to build the project you want. In this case the homeowners love spending time outside with their children and asked us to add on to the original design to give them ample space for outdoor play.

Brook Highland, AL, pool pavilion for one; nieces optional

This homeowner in Brook Highland, AL, wanted the perfect poolside porch. It is large and grand and she doesn’t have to justify it to anyone. We love this project. Sometimes the client’s nieces come over to enjoy the pool and porch with her. It’s the perfect space offering shade and relaxation after an energetic swim in the Alabama sun. The client had custom cedar bed swings made for the space, and of course now that’s her nieces’ FAVORITE place to spend the night.

The cedar poolside pavilion features a cathedral ceiling with can lights, a chandelier and ceiling fans, fit for a queen and princesses, too. As you can imagine, these swinging day beds are perfect when you want to relax and unwind after a long work week.

No matter the size of your family or the makeup of your household, Archadeck of Birmingham is ready to design the perfect custom outdoor living space to meet your needs. Whatever outdoor living space you desire, for you and your fur-baby or you and a cast of others, let us help you select the shape, size and materials that are right for you.

Understanding Your Outdoor Living Project Timeline...

It is only natural that many people think of building outdoor projects in the moment. This is usually during the outdoor living season when the weather is nice and they want to spend time outside, but sometimes it can be challenging to hire a quality contractor during these busiest of times. Choosing to secure your project design and details early has many advantages. That is why I am often stumped when a customer has their preliminary design in place and says we will just wait to sign the contract in order to confirm moving ahead with the project.

From our 25+ years experience as an outdoor living space designer and builder, procrastinating about when to begin a project can mean waiting longer to enjoy your finished space. Any reputable contractor will have some lead time before they can begin construction on your project. In addition, there are many timing factors that are beyond our control and moving ahead will prevent less hold up of your anticipated project.

The timing factors you cannot control
Scheduling

When you sign a contract with Archadeck of Birmingham to build your project, we will add your project to our construction schedule. Keep in mind that we have other jobs underway in the Birmingham, AL, area. This means more projects, with signed contracts, which were scheduled to begin in the order they were confirmed.

Before we build anything, we work with you to design the outdoor living space you’ve dreamed of. The design process may take several iterations from rough sketches to polished 3-D renderings. Some clients think of elements they want to add or change each time they see a new version of their design. That’s okay because it’s your home. But each change must go back to our drafting department and be added to the architectural renderings. Archadeck of Birmingham is one of the few local Archadeck offices that still structure their own drawings in-house. We are a certified office and supply our clients a rendering for every porch or outdoor room we design.

When the design is finalized, we also finalize all of your material choices including the genre of materials you choose to use on your project, including woods, synthetics, amenities, porch ceilings, railings, pillars and beams, etc. Knowing what materials you want in your design enables us to give you an exact quote for your project. At that point, we can sign the contract and schedule the job.

Permitting

We must submit the confirmed design and specifications to the local permitting agencies, either city or county, depending on where you live. Sometimes we encounter delays at these agencies. Permitting usually takes 3-5 days, but the permitting process is unpredictable. If zoning issues arise, additional action is required. You may have to meet with a zoning board, and you must get on their calendar a certain number of days in advance of their meeting. If you just miss getting on the agenda, you may have to wait a month until the next zoning board meeting.

HOA approval

Does your community or neighborhood require Homeowners Association approval of your construction plans? How often does this group meet, and how far in advance do you need to notify them of your plans? In most of the neighborhoods in and around the Birmingham-area, HOA approval usually takes about 3-5 weeks.

Material Availability & Delivery

We special order many of the materials we use from reliable vendors we have worked with for many years. Some of the materials may not be available during the timeline we need them or in the amounts required for a particular project. In these cases, additional material arrival date and delivery may be affected. While we can usually predict when materials will arrive, every now and then we encounter delays.

Mother Nature

Every season has its share of bad-weather days that can set a construction schedule back. Weather can be unpredictable. For example, the Birmingham region is just coming out of a rainy spell, and now would be a perfect time to get your project underway.

As you may have gathered from the details outlined above, you cannot call a contractor in May to build a project you plan to start enjoying by Memorial Day. With so many factors beyond your — and our — control, the timing works out best if you begin planning farther ahead.


— Isn’t it time you called Archadeck of Birmingham today and start living the outdoor lifestyle you deserve?

The most important timing factor for your new outdoor living project is when you first make the point of contact schedule your design consultation. The sooner you start the process, the sooner your new porch, deck, screened porch, (or outdoor living combination space) will be completed. That’s why you should go ahead and get started now, while spring is fresh in the air. Before you know it, summer will be here! If you take steps now to begin setting up the project, you’ll be showing off your new outdoor living space in no time at all!
