What drew you to live in the Hoover-area? Was it being able to watch the wildlife that often frequents your backyard? Was it the fresh air and smell of sweet honeysuckle that flourishes in the spring? Was it the constant show of seasonal color from the native trees? Was it the sound of the gentle echo of hoofbeats closeby? Maybe just one of these elements brought you to the area, but their sum is the reason why you stay.
One of the benefits of living in the Hoover area is the ambiance of upscale country living while remaining just a short drive away from the conveniences of Birmingham’s metro areas. As a Hoover homeowner, you also have the luxury of spacious, wooded lots perfect for outdoor living! Many of the region’s properties are not only picturesque but also well-suited for outdoor entertaining.
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. To help you through these complicated choices we will use your property & lifestyle as a guide to advise you based on our many years of experience. The personal service you get with Archadeck of Birmingham, the area’s premier custom deck builder, is top notch from the first call until well after post construction clean up. We specialize in wooden decks, low-maintenance decks and much more! Read below for more information on all of the considerations you need to take when planning your Hoover deck addition.
Backyard decks made of pressure-treated pine are still the most affordable and among our most popular, but if you want to keep a wood deck looking great, you will need to follow an annual maintenance schedule faithfully. This includes sanding, staining and sealing your deck. Some homeowners don’t mind the work, while others, swearing they will never refinish another wood deck, have moved to composite decking boards. Meanwhile, some clients simply love the look and feel of natural wood and see no reason to consider alternatives. You can visit Composite or Wood Deck? At Archadeck of Birmingham, We Want to Help You Select Materials That are Right for You, to explore the pros and cons of wood and synthetic decking.

Though we receive requests to design and build a myriad of outdoor structures from Hoover-area homeowners, there is a huge emphasis on reducing the maintenance required to keep them looking like new. This is why many of our custom deck projects include the use of synthetic decking like TimberTech decking and other low maintenance materials.
Low-maintenance decking will never have to be stained or sealed, but it will need occasional cleaning. Synthetic decking won’t split, crack or warp. Design versatility is a huge advantage of synthetic decking. Low-maintenance suppliers also provide extensive warranties, giving you peace of mind. With this much information to consider, we can help you weigh the cost versus the benefits to decide which decking material will work best for your home & lifestyle.
