Archadeck of Suburban Boston Deck Craftsmanship

Decks are an important part of successful outdoor living areas. Decks provide a place to gather, play, reflect and relax. Archadeck of Suburban Boston creates decks to beautify your yard and to enhance your leisure time. We build our decks with quality materials and expert craftsmanship to ensure they endure.

Our deck designs are the cat’s meow!

When you choose Archadeck of Suburban Boston to build your dream deck, the fine print includes attention to detail, craftsmanship, finesse and love. Our designs get noticed! Our outdoor living awards include the prestigious Contractor of the Year (CotY) awards, given each year by NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry). We have won this prestigious award in 2011, 2012 and again in 2013. We have also earned numerous design and customer service awards from Archadeck’s National Headquarters and Super Service Awards from Angie’s List.

Here is a glimpse of some of the craftsmanship details we use in our deck designs…

These custom stairs in Melrose, MA include beveled tread boards which add aesthetic appeal and eliminate any sharp edges.

We wanted to preserve the vintage stonework on both of these homes by integrating the stair treads and risers into their stone foundation. Intricate scribework is labor intensive, but the benefits are worth it. The careful scribework results in stairs and stonework that celebrate each other!

Our craftsmanship is evident down to the very last decking board!

Diagonal decking adds a distinct character to your deck and can be directed to emphasize a view or affect how people move through the space. On tall decks, diagonal decking increases the strength of the frame by making the entire deck more rigid. On a low deck, directional changes enhance the visual appeal.

Here we used a parting board to dramatize the diagonal decking.

This deck below features the more intricate herringbone floor pattern. Herringbone patterns take more time dedicated to carefully layout and build, but the result are striking.

Sometimes the proof of quality craftsmanship begins with the things you DON’T see!

Look closely at the boards of this Ipe hardwood deck — how many screws can you detect? Archadeck of Suburban Boston installed Ipe plugs to hide the screws on this deck to create an unblemished materpiece. Attending to the smallest details makes our decks stand out. (There are six screws here.)

We inset textured, translucent glass diamonds into the floor of this deck and installed accent lights below. In daylight, the result is reminiscent of custom-tiles installed by master craftsman. At night, the deck floor glows.

This deck in Waltham, MA features a fenestrated curved bench. Spacing deck boards on edge creates a bench that is comfortable to sit on and impressive to look at.
