Welcome to Archadeck of Suburban Boston

Thanks for visiting our website! We look forward to helping you design the outdoor living space you have always envisioned. With this in mind, there are several keys to a successful remodeling project:

  • Understanding your functional, aesthetic and financial requirements;
  • Creating a design that satisfies those needs and desires;
  • Professional construction, carefully managed;
  • An established quality control process;
  • Open and frequent communication;
  • Written warranties and project follow-up.

Once we understand your functional and aesthetic requirements, your financial target, and your material choices, then our Design Consultant can create a 3-D computer rendering of your project. You’ll see exactly what your new deck, porch, patio or sunroom will look like on your home. After you finalize the design, we adjust the detailed Project Specifications and give you the exact fixed price of your project. The next step is to sign the agreement then we schedule your project.

Rendering Before and Project Photo After

Our Structural Analyst then creates the detailed structural drawings for your project, after calculating load paths and ensuring that each element meets or exceeds both the International Residential Building Code and Archadeck’s more detailed Construction Standards. Our Structural Analyst has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Architectural Engineering, and his drawings are further reviewed and approved by the Construction & Drafting Department at corporate headquarters.

Satisfied customers: The strongest proof of our performance

It was, in a word, awesome. The architect spent quality time looking at our house and where the deck would go, and crafted a beautiful design to support how we wanted to use the new space…. We would absolutely use them again, and recommend them without reservation.

John in Framingham, MA

This is a wonderful company and we are very pleased with the outcome of our deck. It is a beautiful deck and they communicate well.

Christine in Sudbury, MA

I’d agree with other reviews that called them “intense” – they are very detailed and thorough, and are very attentive to the homeowner’s vision/needs/etc…. Mike did beautiful work, and they were very careful about adjacent landscape plants and completely cleaned up the work space.
