How we create the perfect deck for you

Your deck is your outdoor room.  You can use it to barbeque, dine, lounge, soak up some sun, entertain or all of these.  You decide!

There are many decking options.  We’ll walk you through the process of choosing the perfect decking for your needs and enjoyment.  Railing options also abound.  Some customers are enjoying the unique rail systems we have put together for them.  It’s your choice!

What about amenities?  You choose which ones, if any, you want.  We’ll help you fully explore amenities such as benches, planter boxes, pergolas (trellis), privacy screens, outdoor lighting, skirting choices, or any other unique feature that will enhance your deck project.  The goal is to make you long to get away to your own backyard.


We begin by exploring how you intend to use your deck.  Then, depending on your personal taste, needs, and style, we design the perfect deck for you.  Your deck will be comfortable, beautiful and functional.

With our 3-D computer design, you get an excellent idea of what your deck will look like.

See an example below.

Please allow us to suggest some ideas we have gleaned from years of experience.  Working together we can design your perfect deck!

Should I Add a Patio Room or a Deck?

For more and more people the simple answer to that question is both.  In our climate you can enjoy a patio room for many more days a year than a deck.  However for grilling, sunning, or just enjoying the fresh air nothing can beat a deck.

We recently completed a patio room project that included a small deck.

The patio room above will add many hours of "outdoor living" when the elements are harsh.  Even in relatively mild weather many folks enjoy being "bug-free" in their "outdoor living room."

What would you enjoy doing in your patio room?  Some people like it for watching T.V., enjoying their morning coffee, or just relaxing.  A patio room is also a great place for young ones.  As you can see from the picture gallery, patio rooms can range from basic to stunning.

I have been asked, "What is the difference between a patio room, a sun room and a Florida room?"   There is none.  You can call your room whatever you want.


This maintaince free composite deck will be enjoyed for years to come.

The above deck blends in with the new patio room.  The bench not only adds seating area, but it also creates a great perimeter border.  This composite deck comes with a twenty-five year warranty on the material.  It will be enjoyed for many years.

For some folks the answer to the question in our title is both.  We are always delighted to visit your home and discuss the solutions that best fit your situation.
