Offering Unwavering Support with Your Outdoor Living Franchise

Archadeck took on deck projects when our company first opened in 1980. After expanding from Richmond, Virginia, to new regions in 1985, our home improvement franchise quickly became the largest building network in the nation, specializing in custom-designed and custom-built gazebos, sunrooms, screened porches, and related outdoor living structures.

Creating Outdoor Sanctuaries for More Than 40 Years

Over the years, our home improvement franchise has grown to meet the increasing consumer demand for outdoor living spaces that are more comfortable and complete. As life’s pace and stresses have increased, more and more people seek sanctuary from the demands of school, jobs, and full calendars. By the late 1990s, the concrete patio style of the 1960s had paved the way for a variety of materials and designs for our deck franchise with outdoor kitchens, outdoor living rooms, sunrooms, pergolas, porticos, porches, hardscapes, decks for pools, spas, and multiple levels, and outdoor living spaces of every kind.

A Network of Experienced, Well-Recognized Professionals

Today, Archadeck includes locally owned and operated offices in the U.S. and Canada and has built over 120,000 projects worldwide. We believe our competitive edge is in our approach to design, with local teams of Design Consultants across North America specializing in creating custom projects for our clients’ outdoor living spaces.

We’d like to think our local outdoor building offices offer the best of both worlds: each local office is staffed by trained professionals with an in-depth knowledge of local building law, but every location also has access to Archadeck’s national network and established manufacturer relations. We're very proud of the fact that Archadeck is currently ranked as the top deck and porch builder in the U.S. by Qualified Remodeler magazine and has been featured on HGTV.

- Kyle Faulkner
