A His and Hers Deck in St. Ives

Cinda Salazar, Co-owner, Archadeck of Alpharetta

AL: Happy Spring! Thanks for sitting down to chat with us. We've been reading up. All Archadeck projects have two separate guarantees: offering an expansive customer protection plan and you handle every detail from securing any needed building permits, to the final cleanup, and work to be as unobtrusive as possible during the entire construction phase. Respect! Tell us about this St Ives (Johns Creek) home.

CS: This was a fun project to work on because it was two original wood decks that we were replacing to give the homeowner a maintenance-free outdoor living space. We call this one the double-decker.

AL: You build decks, patios, porches, pergolas, fire features, sunrooms, screened porches and can add built-in planters, seating, and storage. What were the homeowner's hopes and dreams for this project?

CS: The homeowners really wanted something that was more modern. They originally wanted the outer deck and railing to curve, but to cut down on cost we recommended doing more of a bay on the corners. This still gave them an updated look, and honestly I think ties in more with the angle decking that is an Archadeck standard. 

AL: Your design philosophy begins with functionality. Traffic flow is taken into consideration for the best functional use of the deck space. Smart. What makes this deck special?

CS:  This double-decker is a his and hers outdoor space. He has the upper deck that is located off the kitchen for a grilling area. She has her lower deck for a sitting area. We used Timbertech composite decking and railing. We installed an underdeck system to give dry space for the lower deck. This creates the perfect space for outdoor furniture and cushions that need to remain dry. 

AL: You work with your husband Mark and you love what you do.
