Welcome to Archadeck of
Central Iowa

Thanks for visiting the Archadeck of Central Iowa web site. Our site is designed to help you discover how our design/build services can enhance your outdoor living lifestyle. And, welcome to the party! We are now celebrating our Fifteenth Year of operation as Archadeck of Central Iowa!

Archadeck is a national brand of service professionals dedicated to the development of outdoor living spaces, rooms and accessories. Our custom design, construction and support services are focused on decks (wood and wood-alternative), screen porches, open porches, sunrooms, 3- and 4-season rooms, patios, pergolas, outdoor kitchens and other outdoor living components. Or, as we like to say, virtually anything under the sun!

Since 1980, Archadeck has been an industry leader in this exciting field. We’ve operated in the Des Moines and Central Iowa areas since 1997, for over Fifteen Years as Archadeck of Central Iowa. Over these periods, outdoor living has grown both as a popular lifestyle as well as a valuable and attractive (when done right) component of your home. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. But, we do understand it…we live outdoors everyday…for over Fifteen Years. And, yes, in Central Iowa…even in the Winter months!

Our Des Moines-area outdoor living projects are frequently featured in local – and even national – publications. More information about these projects can be found at the Special Media Features section in the “About Us” menu tab above.

As you consider your outdoor living lifestyle choices, feel free to download our complimentary Outdoor Living Design Guide. This popular guide has been prepared to help you understand our approach to “the art of outdoor design” and help facilitate our complimentary design consultation.

Satisfied customers: The strongest proof of our performance

Quality job!

Jeff and Nancy K., Johnston

Harold was great to work with. I was out of town for most of the construction and he handled all difficulties efficiently and effectively. Really happy with the finished product and have received many compliments from the neighbors.

Susan P., Des Moines

We are pleased with the overall quality and appearance of our screened porch. Whenever we found workmanship or something that did not meet our expectations, David made every effort to correct it to our satisfaction.

Terry and Janice C., Ankeny

This is probably about the best damn thing you guys could do. Every question that I had has been taken care of perfectly and I could not be happier. I just said that to my wife and she said, you’re kidding me, because I’m never happy. Everything is great. Now you’ve got to get your camera out here and take pictures of this one because its gorgeous.

Steve and Rosemary B., West Des Moines

The quality of work and finished project is outstanding! Its better than what we expected.

Randy and Natalie B., Ankeny

We had an excellent experience from start to finish with Archadeck and were very pleased with all aspects of the project.

Mary Alice H., West Des Moines

Harold and David did an excellent job. If I have anyone in the future needing services, I will definitely tell them about Archadeck.

Brett and Pamela M., Des Moines

I like the finished deck. Looks good.

Marilyn A., Des Moines

We are totally happy with the job David Cross and his crew did. Once started, they completed it an a timely and professional manner.

Arlo and Norma B., Albion

I’ve completed several projects on my home this year and this the only one that was stress-free. From the initial planning meetings through the entire build process, my expectations were exceeded. David and Harold Cross were fantastic to work with, the crews who were on site were professional and courteous, and the finished product was exactly what I envisioned.

Darla B., Des Moines

Finished great. Easy to work with. Nice end product. Well-built, good-looking.

Tom and Karla K., Ames

The end result made the project worthwhile. We have an extremely nice deck that is very unique compared to others in our neighborhood.
