Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

With 22 years of experience in bringing our customers’ outdoors alive, we understand your passion for your home and strive to build stylish and sensible spaces that elevate your lifestyle.

No. Unfortunately, we do not offer in-house financing at this time.
Yes! In fact, we are proud of designing specialized, high-quality custom decks. We know that each house is as unique as those who live there and that one-size-fits-all is a counter-productive construction strategy.
Project timelines are typically custom to each individual circumstance. We’ll typically give you a rough timeframe when you request a quote from us.
A permit is required when adding any load-supporting structures to your home or making any structural repairs/remodeling to your home. Also, any changes to your home’s mechanical, electrical, or plumbing system may require a permit.

Porches enhance the personality of your home without taking away its originality. Constructing a porch will not only enhance your home’s facade but adds practicality. A porch also creates extra storage space while offering additional security by building another barrier between your home and the outdoors.

If you are on the fence about constructing a porch, give us a call. We can help you with estimates and design suggestions.
Much like deck construction, the timeline for porch building is dependent on individual circumstances. We will typically give you a rough estimate during the initial consultation or quote request.
Yes! We offer screen installation options for both new constructions and retrofits. Screens can provide extra comfort by keeping bugs out and adding a layer of privacy. Contact us to discuss screen options for your porch.
Are you allergic to dust, pollen, or critters? Want to enjoy the freshness of the outdoors with the comforts of the indoors? A screened-in porch could be a great option for you. However, if you prefer an open-air porch or budget is a factor, it may not be necessary. We can help with design suggestions and estimates to suit your individual needs.
Patios are great spaces to unwind and entertain. You can enjoy the outdoors during all seasons without getting hit by the sun or drenched in rain. Patios also add value to your property and can enhance the overall aesthetic of your home.
Yes! A patio cover is a great addition for those looking for shade during sunny days or added protection from inclement weather. We offer various materials and styles for patio covers, such as aluminum, wood, lattice, and solid designs. Contact us to discuss your options.
The timeline for patio construction varies based on individual circumstances, including the size and design of the patio. We can offer a rough estimate during the initial consultation or quote request.
A retrofit is a renovation or updating of an existing structure. We offer retrofitting options for decks, patios, and porches, including screen installation and patio cover additions. Contact us to discuss your options for enhancing your current outdoor living space.
