Sweeping mountain views and a full four seasons of weather to enjoy, make outdoor living space a vital part of home ownership in Layton, Utah. With an aging, unsafe deck and a complicated multi-level backyard, this Layton family was not utilizing their outdoor space. They wanted to extend their enjoyment of gorgeous mountain views from their home. By adding a safe new composite deck, we gave them the ability to relax and unwind without worrying about current or future safety issues.
Strategic Backyard Planning
At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we don’t just replace aging unsafe decks with new long-lasting composite decking. We discuss every detail with the homeowner to uncover opportunities for improved function in the entire backyard space. This unique backyard in Layton, UT featured two very distinct levels. To make both parts of the yard safe and functional, we added a retaining wall under the deck. This will help with erosion issues, but also created a second covered patio space underneath the deck. A perfect set up for the potential future renovation that could lead to a walkout basement.
Gorgeous Layton Deck Design
To meet the demands for a long-lasting deck that looks as beautiful as it is strong, we used TimberTech Terrain in Brown Oak with a Rustic Elm parting board and landings. TimberTech Terrain offers a composite core with a protective polymer shell on all four sides so that you can enjoy a mold and mildew resistant low-maintenance deck with a 25-year stain and fade warranty, for a lower price than a 100% synthetic deck.
To extend the low-maintenance, no staining, no sealing, no painting lifestyle, we chose RDI Avalon Railing in white. The white railing features gorgeous post caps for a polished look and matches the home’s siding and backyard fence, really tying the contrasting deck to the rest of the property. This aluminum deck railing will last as long as the deck, also requiring little maintenance. A simple garden hose to clean it off when it gets dirty and these Layton homeowners can enjoy the classic white picket fence feeling from their modern custom deck.
