Belgard Hardscapes has a new partner

Supplier News

The company joins forces with Archadeck and Outdoor Living Brands.

| July 7, 2011

Belgard Hardscapes by Oldcastle, a manufacturer of patio pavers and garden wall products, has joined forces with Archadeck, a builder of outdoor living environments, to offer homeowners increased product and installation options of outdoor hardscapes. The partnership agreement names Belgard as Archadeck’s Preferred Supplier of pavers and hardscapes materials and reciprocally adds Archadeck’s nationwide installation services to Belgard’s pool of certified installers.

“Archadeck has over 60 locations in the U.S. and Canada and brings over 30 years of experience to the table as the largest outdoor living builder in North America,” says Rob Haislip, vice president of operations for Archadeck. “Belgard’s products are not only visually stunning and exceptionally well made, they offer the nationwide distribution needed to help us continue to grow the hardscape installation segment of our business.”

Haislip adds that an increasing number of Archadeck projects have included some kind of hardscape component, whether a paver patio, walkway, or retaining wall.

“Phased, or staged, selling has become a growing concept in outdoor living construction,” adds Haislip. “Working off of one master design, homeowners can phase out construction of an outdoor space that can include a porch, deck, pergola, patio, walkway, and a fireplace, for example.

Other Belgard joint-venture partnerships include agreements with Mediumrare grills, Chicago Brick Oven, and Harmony Outdoor Living, manufacturers of modular outdoor kitchens and fire places.

“In addition to our hardscape product lines, our existing affiliations with these companies also increase the offerings available to Archadeck,” says Ken O’Neill, vice president of Belgard Hardscapes. “And in return, Archadeck brings an increased level of professionalism to our installation services due to their history in the industry and their knowledge of outdoor construction that goes beyond hardscapes and into all aspects of outdoor living.”
