When your wood deck reaches the end of its useful life, you have some decisions to make about replacing it. Archadeck of Columbus is your deck replacement specialist in Dublin, OH, and throughout the Columbus area. We can help you determine your deck needs so you make the best decisions about the kind of deck you want going forward.
Our clients in Dublin, OH, wanted to remove their old wood deck and replace it with a new deck. This was their opportunity to make significant changes. They wanted a larger deck, and they wanted to build it with low-maintenance composite decking.

You Can Do More With a Larger Deck
If you’ve had a deck already, and have found yourself wishing it were bigger, deck replacement time is when you can finally make that move. Sometimes it’s a difficult decision. Enlarging your deck means you’ll give up something else, and for many homeowners, what you give up is part of your yard. You’ll need to ask yourself how much you use that area in your yard. Would you use that area more as part of an expanded deck than you use it now?
These Dublin OH homeowners knew they would enjoy a larger deck. They spend quality time relaxing, grilling, and dining outdoors. As for finding the extra space, their yard is on a slope and has a small retaining wall that was parallel with their old deck. Extending the reach of the new deck to meet the retaining wall was the perfect solution.
Does Deck Replacement Signal Your Move to Low-Maintenance Decking?
Some homeowners will prefer a wood deck every time, and some are thrilled to make the switch to low-maintenance composite decking. These clients in Dublin can be counted as part of the second group, and they’re happy with their choice, TimberTech Terrain composite decking. They appreciate the concept of the low-maintenance lifestyle, and they love TimberTech Terrain’s 30-year warranty, including a 30-year fade and stain warranty.
Archadeck of Columbus has been a TimberTech composite and PVC low-maintenance deck builder and contractor for more than 10 years. We are TimberTech experts. These Dublin homeowners made two wise decisions: choosing to build with TimberTech and hiring Archadeck of Columbus to design and build their new deck.
How Can You Customize Your Deck Design?
We custom design every deck we build, and our clients collaborate in the design process by selecting the materials for their project. These clients chose composite decking in TimberTech’s Brown Oak color. They selected black powder-coated aluminum railings, a popular choice. They liked the idea of adding a pergola at one end of the new deck. You’ll notice this pergola doesn’t have the crisscross layers of rafters and slats that provide shade. This pergola, made of cedar, is a striking design element that helps define the edge of the space.
Another way we created a custom deck design here was to angle the decking boards on the lower deck surface. We used a parting board down the middle, and on each side of it the boards run at an angle to meet at the parting board. The boards on the upper section, meanwhile, run parallel to the house. The combination creates visual interest and emphasizes the option of using the two levels for different purposes or activities such as grilling and dining.
For easy navigation and ambiance, we installed post cap lighting and tread lighting in areas where the deck transitions from one level to the other. The post cap lights came directly from the railing manufacturer, and the low-voltage riser lights are from TimberTech. Finally—another customization—we used pressure-treated vertical wood deck skirting for contrast.
