One important design element that Archadeck of Chicagoland often implements is diagonal decking direction. While this may seem like a small detail, it significantly strengthens the deck. Decking direction can also be used to guide the eye towards a specific area of the deck or the yard. Using the herringbone pattern creates an aesthetically pleasing look for your custom deck design. This Arlington Heights re-deck, meaning that Archadeck replaces only the deck boards per the homeowner’s request, was built with pressure treated pine decking.
