31 photosThis was a pretty straightforward job. The owner just wanted to replace the current deck with something a little larger. They were content with not having stairs.
They did add a privacy screen with plant hangers on one side and opted to get the stone and edging to finish off the underneath. The stone really helped as the area under the deck really needed to be stabilized to control erosion and to just make a nicer place to walk.
It all turned out quite nicely.
Call Roofed Deck
23 photosAll they wanted was a covered deck that would provide some protection from the elements and provide a nice place to relax.
Cedar benches with lights underneath provided some nice seating and the wow factor at night.
44 photosThey liked the shape of the old deck, but they wanted it a little larger and to take advantage of the space taken by a second stair case that was not used.
They also wanted low maintenance. A Trex Transcend deck in Tree House color with matching railing fit with what they wanted perfectly.
We were able to meld the new deck in with the existing walkway and landscaping.
28 photosThe owner was happy with the layout of the current deck. It was showing some signs of age though.
After inspecting the structure to determine if it could be kept, and some discussion about materials we decided to go with Trex Transcend material for the decking and rail caps and go with cedar with metal balusters for the railing.
This is a great combination of materials that minimizes maintenance at a great value.
What a great outdoor living space!
33 photosTheir new addition was complete and now it was time for a deck.
The desire was for something that ultra low maintenance and flowed well to the yard.
We did exactly that and produced a Trex Transcend deck in Rope Swing color with plenty of bench seating and large set of stairs that wrapped the corner and flowed to the yard.
A great result!
Del Giudice Deck
19 photosThe size and shape fit well, so we did he same thing again. New and fresh was all that was needed for this one.
28 photosThe old deck was small, not up to code and just not safe anymore.
The owners wanted something a little larger and with minimal maintenance required.
A composite deck was the answer.
The design fit perfectly with the house and the backyard!
74 photosThe old deck was failing and was really too small for the what the family needed.
While providing a great outdoor living space the deck also provides some important utility in a level path from the driveway to the rear yard and some dry storage underneath.
This deck really fit in well with the house. It is a very private setting and will be enjoyed for many years.
25 photosThe railing and decking had served for 45 years and it was time for a replacement. This time we did the railing with cedar and made some of the parts from larger stock for strength. These rails take some time to do right, but in the end we ended up with exactly the desired look.
35 photosThe old deck was in dire need of an update. It was not to code and very unsafe.
They were very happy with the size and the design of the existing deck. Because of the landscaping and hardscaping we did not want to make any major changes.
A couple of enhancements were made:
- Hidden fasteners
- Metal balusters
- Low voltage lighting
It is a great fit.
36 photosThe basic layout worked well.
The owners just wanted it a bit larger and low maintenance.
A Trex Transcend deck with cedar railing was the answer.
Konigsberg Screen Porch II
98 photosThis is the 2nd screen porch we have built for the Konigsberg's. The moved to a new house and wanted a new screened porch.
Because they now have the house they are going to stay in for a long time, they wanted to go "all out" with the outdoor living space to go with it.
- Spacious screened porch
- Good sized open deck on the upper
- Hot tub with plenty of space and seating on the lower
- Stairs that look good and are very functional
- Low voltage lighting throughout
The list goes on and on with this one, but the pictures really tell the story.
The family is wonderful to work with on this screened porch and the last one. We are sure they will enjoy many, many years of enjoyment on their new outdoor living space.
Kose Screened Porch Phase II
15 photosWe finished the screened porch and deck and now the patio and landscaping has been added.
It is a total backyard makeover!
21 photosThis was a tight location, but in the end we were able to accomplish our goal.
47 photosThe old deck was very small for the house and it was constructed in a way that was just unsafe.
The solution was to tear it all down. There was an unpleasant surprise waiting underneath. Lots of concrete and dirt that had to be move off-site and graded under the deck.
In the end everything turned out beautiful!
16 photosThe deck that they had been living with was built very unsafe and was quite small. The referred to it as a balcony.
The new one is much larger, very safe and we used an engineered beam so we could do away with the center support post underneath. This will make way for a much nicer patio space.
16 photosThis townhouse really needed a deck and a fence.
This would make the backyard a much more enjoyable space.
A low maintenance Trex Transcend deck was a great fit.
29 photosThey were happy with the size and shape of the upper deck.
The changes they wanted was to remove the stairs from the upper deck as they were seldom used and wanted the added security.
The lower deck was also to be enlarged a bit to the edge of the house.
It all turned out nice and refreshed.
Saindon Screened Porch
97 photosThe challenge on this one was grade of the backyard.
We were able to come up with a design that integrated with the existing grade. It all fits very well.
Even the shed is tucked neatly underneath.
32 photosWhat a great total backyard makeover!
Deck, shed and patio all at the same time.
Spengler Screened Porch
88 photosThey wanted a screened porch with an outer deck for grilling. The outer deck needed to be ultra low maintenance, so we went with Trex Transcend decking. We also used a new aluminum railing system put out by Trex. This worked perfectly and allowed us to match the railing on the open deck with the screened porch. The plans for the patio underneath require that there be no center post under the screened porch. For this to happen we needed to use engineered beams that would make the span. There are just too many features to list on this “Total Backyard Transformation”. Just check out the photos and you can see them all.
Stoehr Screened Porch
29 photosThey wanted a screened porch.
The deck still had a few years in it, so we kept the deck and just attached the new screened porch to it.
In the end it looked like it had been built with the house.
An addition that will be enjoyed for many years to come!
46 photosThis house and backyard deserved a much nicer deck than what was there.
After a few rounds of design we settled on a stepped approach that would not block the view of the great landscape in the backyard.
Planter, a cedar pergola and LED lighting make this a one-of-a-kind!
41 photosThere was a deck on the rear of the house.
There was a deck on the side of the house.
The problem was that they did not connect together. Well, they do now.
The whole things just flows so much better now.
We also to the opportunity to change all the decking to Trex for ultra-low maintenance and we installed beautiful clear cedar railings along with black metal balusters.
What a change!
