Cozy elevated Lenexa screened porch with outdoor fireplace.
Archadeck of Kansas City aims to be your first choice for a Lenexa deck builder. More and more Lenexa homeowners are seeing the benefits of having a custom deck designed specifically to their design and usage specifications. One very popular choice for custom decks in Lenexa is a low-maintenance deck. Low-maintenance decks offer several advantages, including many finish choices, including an array of wood-look colors and textures. They offer longevity with fade resistance, maintaining their beauty for many years. Busy families today enjoy the benefits of not having to perform annual maintenance, which might be required of a natural wood deck, including sanding, staining, or painting.
This Lenexa KS low-maintenance deck and screened porch is spacious enough to have multiple outdoor living areas, including space for a large outdoor dining table and chairs. These Lenexa homeowners chose to maximize use of the outdoor spaces by screening in a large portion of the deck. Screened in spaces offer homeowners the option to be outdoors during inclement weather, and when pests might keep us from using an open-air space.
There is a low-maintenance deck, which is also natural wood! It is possible to have a natural wood deck that is beautiful, long-lasting, and low-maintenance to boot. The wood is Ipe Brazilian hardwood, and it’s gaining popularity in the Kansas City market. This exotic hardwood has a hardness rating of 3700, compared to western red cedar, which offers a rating averaging 700.

Depending on your aesthetic preference and environmental elements, any type of wood deck will require periodic maintenance, on average every one or two years. If you wish to keep the rich color of this gorgeous wood, your maintenance will be in resealing, rather than staining. Oil is required to seal an Ipe deck to keep its color. However, if you prefer a natural, weathered appearance, you can allow your Ipe deck to fade over the years, aging to a light gray finish. Either way, Ipe is a solid choice for your new Lenexa KS deck.
Screened porches are popular in Lenexa for many reasons. Screened in porch designs offer a roof for shelter from the elements and screens to keep out pests, all the while giving more opportunities for homeowners to bring their comforts from inside to the great outdoors. Screened porches of today are truly customizable to accommodate any outdoor living style. From the simplicity of only offering a roof and screens, to the more elaborate amenities, such as custom-finished ceilings, electrical hook-ups, and outdoor fireplaces.
