what we do

porches & decks

We specialize in repairing and rebuilding single family and multi-unit building front wood porches and stairs, rear wood porches, rear decks, balconies and roof-top deck structures with pressure-treated yellow pine lumber, red cedar lumber, exotic woods (Ipe, Tigerwood...) and composite decking materials (like Azek, Trex, Deckorators, Zuri, TimberTech, etc.).

pergolas, arbors, trellis & privacy walls

We specilize in custom build garage-top or roof-top wood pergolas, arbors or trellis with a modern look or in a more traditional style. Most of our pergolas/arbors/tresllis are built out of red cedar lumber that comes in two difference finishes... rough sawn for a more rustic look and a smooth cut for a more traditional style or softer appearance. Also we offer custom pergolas/arbors/trellis in pressure-treated yellow pine lumber as well.

wood fences & gates

We repair and replace wood fences and gates in several design options. We can either replace a broken post or panel or completely install a new wood fence. The materials that we use are either pressure-treated yellow pine, or red cedar lumber.

flat roofs

Since we repair and install roof decks we also offer roof repair and maintenance services for flat rubber roofs. In many cases repairs and maintenance is needed on an existing old roof before a new deck structure is installed. Silver protective coating can increase the life of your roof significantly.

rehab

As a family construction company we offer complete rehabs. Either a bathroom or a basement or a complete home renovation we can provide all that is needed. From hardwood floors and tiles to walls and painting, electrical, plumbing and HVAC we can do it all.

architectural services

We offer complete architectural and design service for your deck and porch project or a complete home rehab. We closely work with a licensed architect and designer to provide an accurate and detailed design in a timely matter. We also offer permit expediting services as well.
