"Lawson and his team completely rebuilt our deck on a townhome. He showed up to do the estimate when he said he would and then worked with me to accommodate my schedule for the project. His team tore out the old deck, hauled it off and rebuilt a new deck on the same footprint. They worked hard and we are very happy with the new deck."

Screen Porch

A screen porch is an ideal choice if you are looking to beat the heat and take refuge from those pesky flying insects. With the addition of a ceiling fan to any of our porches, you will find your new porch very relaxing and enjoyable—a great investment. Our screen porch builders will help you find the right design to fit your taste and budget needs.

3-Season Porches

Three-season porches use EZ Breeze or Sun Panel windows to keep rain and pollen out of the porch, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors again. These track windows allow much more airflow into the porch than a traditional "house-type" window and flexible membrane brane. Often, a heat source can be added to the porch to extend the length of the season so that you can enjoy the porch pretty throughout the year.

The sunroom's windows will flood your new porch with plenty of light, and the windows can be raised to let fresh spring air into your home. A sunroom porch will give you the extra space you need for your guests and a quiet place to unwind after a long day at work.
