Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad initially met with these Northwest Winston-Salem homeowners a year ago for a consultation to discuss the outdoor living space they had in mind. The homeowners conveyed to us their love for grilling outside and in general, their love for the outdoors. They enjoyed sitting outside and making the most out of the warm afternoons and spring to fall breezes our region is known for. Their existing outdoor space did not look or function the way they wished. At the time, they wanted the new design to be built using composite and not wood and they also were thinking of screening part of the deck so they could still enjoy the outdoors when it rained. We went over all the options shortly after our consultation, but a decision was not made at that time.
Recently, we were contacted by these homeowners to discuss putting their plans for an updated outdoor living space into action. Even though it had been a year since we last spoke with them, they were exuberant and excited to pick up and go ahead with the project they had considered the previous year. The time was right, so we carefully went over all the specifications for the project which included refurbishing their existing deck with wood, adding a functional under-deck living space and patio with seating wall.
The outdoor living combination they ended up deciding upon added function, beauty and tremendous charm to their home and landscape. In essence, these NW Winston-Salem homeowners were on target to get the backyard of their dreams this season. We began the project by refurbishing their spacious deck with wood and stunning contrasting black aluminum rails. Under the deck we installed a Dry Snap under-deck system which allows the homeowners to utilize the space similar to a covered porch or patio. Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad uses the DrySnap under deck rain carrying system on many of our projects. We have found that the DrySnap system works best and is the easiest way to create functional space under your raised deck. DrySnap® is made of vinyl ceiling panels that collect and drain water away from your new dry space. It provides a maintenance free ceiling that covers the unsightly underside of your deck, turning it into a clean, bright, dry outdoor space. Having a covered under deck space opens the door for endless outdoor living possibilities.
The coup de grâce to this outdoor living combination was the addition of a gorgeous stamped concrete patio with curved seating wall and outdoor lighting. The patio area adds the final touch to this outdoor living space and extends the homeowner’s enjoyment past what they initially thought was within their budget to achieve. The finished project looks as if it came out of the pages of one of those glossy outdoor living magazines and the homeowners are elated with their new backyard space.
