When it comes to building dream outdoor living spaces for homeowners in Raleigh, Durham, and the Greater Triangle, only the best materials for the job will do. Over the years, we’ve developed great relationships with specialized artisan and commercial vendors who offer stunning, high quality, and top performing products. Some of these vendors we’ve found through our clients (if there is a particular vendor that interests our clients, we are happy to work with them) and others we have found through our own networks. No matter how we found them, we are happy to include their very best products in our work. Access to a wide range of customizable design and construction materials is just one of the benefits of working with Archadeck on your outdoor living project.
Here are a few of the specialty vendors we work with and recommend:
Over the past twenty years, AZEK has become a leading brand of low-maintenance synthetic decking. Now owned by the same company that owns TimberTech, AZEK provides high-quality decking, railing, trim, and moulding for beautiful and lasting outdoor living spaces.
AZEK’s premium capped polymer decking line is known as TimberTech AZEK consists of three collections: Vintage, Arbor, and Harvest. Each collection differs in its colors and grain patterns as well as the size of boards they offer. All are backed by a 50-year limited fade and stain warranty.
The Vintage Collection is AZEK’s designer series. It offers natural wood-grain patterns and six highly variegated color options. A special feature of the Vintage collection is that the decking boards are available in different widths. This provides greater customization if you have a preference for wider or more narrow boards to complement your home.
The Arbor Collection offers natural wood-grain patterns and color tones in seven warm earthy hues. Decking boards are available in one standard size. Although it has a larger variety of colors, the Arbor collection is less expensive than the Vintage collection.
The Harvest Collection is the most cost-effective composite decking offered by AZEK. It features three colors in soft, calming tones with wood grain embossing and standard board widths.
If you choose to have a low-maintenance deck, we recommend you also use low-maintenance trim. AZEK offers a full line of synthetic trim, railing, and fasteners, and railing that – like the decking boards – can withstand a wide range of weather for durability and lasting beauty.
AZEK Exteriors’ low-maintenance trim, railing, and fasteners will not rot, split, splinter, or warp. As with AZEK decking, these materials are insect and moisture-resistant and do not require painting or sealing, although they can be painted with vinyl-safe paint if desired. AZEK Exteriors also include UV inhibitors, so they will not fade or yellow with time. All AZEK decking, trim, railing, and fasters come with a limited lifetime warranty.
Do you want to avoid the on-going maintenance of natural wood decks? TimberTech is the leading manufacturer of low-maintenance, composite decking materials that fit a broad range of budgetary and lifestyle needs. We love TimberTech’s capped composite materials as they are enclosed on all four sides. This makes them extremely resistant to mold, insects, and rot for longer-lasting durability. With a wide range of popular colors and a more natural-looking woodgrain – plus matching railings, gates, trim, accessories, deck lights, and dry roof systems – TimberTech can fit anyone’s style preferences. Working with TimberTech also brings extra peace of mind. They stand by their quality with amazing 25-30 year stain and fade warranties. At Archadeck of Raleigh, Durham and the Greater Triangle, we have certified knowledge of and training on all TimberTech product lines.
What type of patio paver interests you the most? Belgard is today’s premier manufacturer of patio pavers. Their versatile range of paver styles offers unique options for every patio and walkway style. From classic brick pavers and cobblestones to natural flagstone and Travertine, Belgard is current with today’s trends without forgoing the timeless classics. With a top quality product line and nationwide distribution, Belgard’s stone and paver veneers are the clear choices for outdoor fireplaces, firepits, patio walls, and other vertical hardscape structures. At Archadeck of Raleigh, Durham, and the Greater Triangle, we are part of a nationwide partnership between Archadeck and Belgard. Our Raleigh team is trained and certified in design and installation of all of Belgard’s products so that we can offer you the best quality patios and hardscape in the Greater Triangle area.
Are you interested in ways to “green” your new outdoor living space? EarthStone Products make recycled granite pavers using 100% post-industrial waste, which reuses material that would have traditionally gone to the landfill. We were first introduced to EarthStone by a Raleigh client who knew he wanted their amazing recycled granite pavers for the large patio and outdoor firepit we were building for him. EarthStone’s pavers, which are perfect for the outdoors, are four times stronger than concrete and can be used in patios, sidewalks, fire pits, retaining walls and even driveways. Their tumbling process creates a textured, non-slip surface, which also works well in walkways and even poolside. In addition to the great functionality, the recycled granite pavers are absolutely gorgeous and come in many color and size options.
By working closely with the best greatest material vendors available, Archadeck of Raleigh, Durham, and the Greater Triangle offers top quality craftsmanship and a streamlined building process for luxurious outdoor living.
