Summer is the season for enjoying your backyard pool. In order to take full advantage of your pool area, it is crucial to have a space conducive to proper traffic flow to and from your existing home. A pool that does not allow for good traffic flow and convenient access into the home will turn poolside entertaining and gatherings into a chore. Archadeck of Central CT transformed the backyard of these Farmington, CT homeowners into a poolside paradise with the addition of a low-maintenance pool deck and custom shade pergola which unifies the pool, deck and entry into the home.

When we met with the homeowners during their initial consultation, their existing backyard included a nice above ground pool and an existing older wooden deck with no way to easily access the pool without walking on a gravel pathway. Not only was the existing situation inconvenient, it made entering the pool difficult and the gravel path was hard on bare feet.

Notice how the new deck "hugs" the pool and includes easy access to the home.Also notice the glass railing portion we installed to maximize visibilty.

Archadeck of Central Connecticut  designed a pool deck that made accessing the pool and the home a breeze! Now the homeowners can easily step down into their pool rather than climbing up into it from a ladder. We used low-maintenance Fiberon decking on the new deck. Fiberon, like other composites does not retain heat as readily as other decking materials which makes it perfect for use around pools and spas where going barefoot is common. The Westech rail chosen to finish out this poolside beauty also delivers low-maintenance qualities and finishes the deck off nicely. We also opted to use  a unique glass rail in the upper portion of the deck railing for added pool visibility and to add depth to the aesthetics of the new deck space. We topped off this outdoor oasis by adding a shade pergola with decorative ends including a Shadetree pergola with retractable awnings  to provide even more sun protection on those sunny afternoons.

These Hartford County CT homeowners are quite pleased with their new backyard space. The finished poolside deck makes pool parties and entertaining more convenient with easy access to the interior kitchen via the deck through glass sliders.
