America’s Deck and Porch Builder Franchise


Archadeck was founded by an architect that had the vision to bring creative and custom design to decks. Twenty five years later, that creative and custom design approach is being applied to all kinds of outdoor living spaces from decks, porches, sunrooms, screened rooms, patios and hardscaped areas, outdoor kitchens and outdoor fireplaces.

The original vision for Archadeck involved transitioning deck design, which were solely squares and rectangles twenty five years ago, to involve more design flare to match the architectural features or the home and fit with the landscaping in the yard. Today, the product line has expanded dramatically based on consumer trends to include porches, sunrooms, screened rooms, patios and hardscaped areas, outdoor kitchens and outdoor fireplaces.

When picking a franchise the most important factor would be picking a business that fits your skill set while also allowing you to achieve your personal lifestyle, income, wealth creation, and career development goals.

Archadeck dominates the outdoor living space design and build category. Archadeck is a national recognized and trusted brand with over 20 years of franchising experience and has been HGTV, the DIY Channel and ranked as one of Remodeling magazine’s Big 50 remodelers. Qualified Remodeler ranks Archadeck as the top deck and porch builder in the United States. Archadeck has also been ranked as one of the top 100 home-based franchises and “Best of the Best” by Entrepreneur magazine. Lastly, as part of Outdoor Living Brands, Archadeck receives customer referrals from sister franchise.

The industry growth rates are quite attractive — homeowners (and commercial establishments) are investing in outdoor living areas to enjoy more quality time with friends and family. In fact, the term “staycation” was introduced into America lexicon during the recent recession and Archadeck’s product lines fill this need in American society.
