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:
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

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.
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.
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.
Excellent in all respects!
….The deck is exactly what we hoped for….
…We will be glad to recommend Archadeck to our friends.
The room is beautiful and I know we’ll enjoy it for years to come.
….This deck is clearly built to last!!
….Thank you for designing and building the classiest, sturdiest, and most functional deck in all of Waltham….
All work was done to incredible detail, and adjustments were made (at no additional cost) as details were uncovered. Many of our neighbors have commented how nice the new porch is.
…If all contractors were as committed as Jim Finlay is to fairness, quality and doing things right, then this world would be a much better place
…An outstanding design that exceeded my expectations
….This was the most painless construction project we have ever done….
The space is fantastic, it represents exactly what we wanted and completely changed the feel of our back yard. In addition to the project itself, I cannot say enough about the professionalism, consideration and quality of the work from Jim Finlay and his design and building team.
The finished project is the envy of the neighborhood.
Couldn’t have been more satisfied with the professionalism and workmanship of this company. They deliver 100 percent every step of the way!
…Archadeck was true to its word…the costs identified at the design phase were indeed the final costs…
…Thanks for a job VERY well done!!
…We love our deck and the incredibly high quality…
…We feel comfortable endorsing your work, your crews and the Archadeck name
A very good experience from start to finish. Jim Finlay’s attention to detail and professionalism were outstanding…
Jim Finlay and his team are professional, thorough and do an excellent job with good communication throughout.
…Thank you for the fabulous job you did on our deck…
Communication was superb from beginning to end. Owner Jim Finlay is a complete professional, thorough and thoughtful…
…Great job, start to finish.
…The Building Inspector came, said Wow! and left.
We have undertaken a variety of renovations on this house; none were as thoroughly planned, carefully thought-out, well-constructed and trouble-free as this one. The deck is the envy of our small neighborhood. It was a pleasure dealing with these professionals, and we love the deck!
We’d be happy to be referrals for your future clients.
…Every aspect of the job…was completed in a timely and truly professional manner…
I have never had such a stress free interaction with a contractor. We would definitely use these guys again
Archadeck took my contract very seriously, and truly cares about getting the job done right and done the way my wife and I wanted.…During the entire project, Jim’s communication with us was perfect…
….Thank you for helping us create a truly fantastic new space in our home.
Archadeck was pretty intense.They take their jobs very seriously and your new deck means quite a bit to them. They want to make sure that you’re aware of everything that they can do for you, and they really want to please…
All of your people were a delight to work with…
…The design and the workmanship are excellent, and their communications, advice, knowledge, and responsiveness made the process very easy!
…The experience overall was an excellent one with a most wonderful outcome.
….We absolutely love it! Thank you!
Overall, the experience was great! Archadeck’s designer provided CAD drawings (computer-aided drawings) to help us visualize what it could look like…
I cannot say enough about this company. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with every step of the way. Even the littlest concern I had was dealt with as if it was as important to them as it was to me…in the end, quality doesn’t cost – it pays. And these guys are a quality outfit. I would recommend them without reservation to anyone.
….The Archadeck staff was incredibly professional and responsive…
Phenomenal workmanship, responsive, professional in every regard. Developed a living space that has truly transformed our family’s living experience.
… The design and finish detail far exceeded my expectations. The quality of work and
materials were outstanding, as was the professionalism and expertise of Eric, Larry, and Jim.
We could not recommend Mr.Finlay and his whole team more. They designed and constructed a deck that ideally suits the style of our 1840 house in Sudbury. They were professional from beginning to end.
…Everything about our project turned out to be better than expected…
“The decks look great and are easy to maintain.”
…We have never seen this level of customer service. It is refreshing.
“Archadeck treated this rather modest project…with the same respect and
meticulous attention as if it was their most complicated assignment.”
Your outdoor projects…fit with the landscape, they enhance the living space
of the owner, they are designed and built by craftsmen who care…
Larry took the time and courtesy to go over all details with us and kept in touch throughout the project, so we knew where everything stood.
They were meticulous and quality of work was excellent. They were very professional and
“The deck and patio look fantastic….This is a high quality deck and very well built.”
The porch looks pretty flawless!….We got quality work, no doubt about it. I would recommend
Archadeck to anyone looking to have a quality deck or porch built.
“The work was meticulously planned and expertly carried out. I could not have been more
We love the new deck!…The one thing that set Archadeck apart from the others was the design
We were in very good hands. We were so pleased by how the design turned into the completed work and how it fit into our house and backyard.
The workmanship and design is exceptional…This project started out as a simple hot tub enclosure and has taken on a WOW factor. It is extraordinary and far exceeds our expectations.
Professionalism from first meeting to job closure. Quality and customer focused. Great job, great team.
While I rated them an A for price it was not because of the immense value they bring…If you are interested in partnering with a professional team that will meet or exceed every expectation from start to finish then this is the right company for you….I have nothing but praise for Jim and his team – they are truly exceptional and worth every penny. You will not be disappointed.
Great, they are very professional and met with me multiple times in advance of work…The work was of high quality and they are honest/accurate in their estimates.
…careful and considerate service. Very responsive. Impeccable work.
Enjoyed working with Archadeck very much.

…We chose Archadeck over the lowest bidder because they had a much superior construction plan… and were by far more professional…
…We just love the deck. The workers did a wonderful job…
…you’re getting quality work, no doubt about it. I would recommend Archadeck to anyone looking to have a quality deck or porch built.
It was, in a word, awesome…We would absolutely use them again, and recommend them without reservation.
Meticulously planned and executed.
Outstanding service – read my review on Angie’s List
I’d like to thank you for construction that was beautifully and professionally done. The sunroom is everything that we hoped it would be. The design continues to get rave comments from our friends, and your execution and focus on our requirements was a pleasure…
Larry’s professional approach and design abilities were instrumental
in creating a spectacular three season room. The project manager and carpenter were top quality and the results are outstanding. We got a superior level of design, build and satisfaction.
Larry and Jim were great to deal with from start to finish. They were very knowledgeable, responsive and extremely professional.
We had a general idea of what we wanted in a porch, but didn’t know where to begin. Archadeck was instrumental in helping us create the actual design, down to what type of ceiling fan and wall sconces would complement the space. The room is even better than we ever imagined.The Archadeck staff — from the demolition crew to the owner —was incredibly professional, responsive, and paid close attention to detail….We wholeheartedly recommend Archadeck.
Archadeck was true to its word…the costs identified at the design phase were indeed the final costs.
Everyone who has seen our deck says “that’s the nicest deck I’ve ever seen!”, even the inspector…We love to show it off and strongly recommend Archadeck.
Larry designed a beautiful sunroom in a challenging existing space
and continued to recommend design details that added up to a
stunning room. Both Larry and Jim are very professional…
All decisions were made based on sound engineering analysis
with great attention to all details and considerations.
Thank you for helping us realize a dream.
We selected Archadeck for many reasons, their great reputation, the fact that they would help us design the perfect deck, and the fact that they were very accessible….We are so happy with everything that Archadeck did – and we are so happy with our new deck.
