Do you start from scratch or do you restore the old porch?
It all depends on the state of your front or rear deck. If you already have them, and you are the new owner of the house or you did not have too much time to invest in the maintenance of your decks, we are here to help you. We can assess the condition of your actual porch, see what can be done to improve and if we can work with what we have, we will. If the state of your deck is not anywhere near to being restored, we recommend a new construction. If you are thinking about a new deck, we can help you out with the design and once the plan and the design are approved, we can start working on your new deck.
How do I choose the design of my new deck?
Front or rear, all new decks need to complement the house, so the design is very important. The size of the decks also matters as it depends on the architecture, how close the sidewalk is from your front door, and how your backyard is organized if you have a pool or not. There are a lot of details to be considered, but that should not worry you at all, as we have a team of experts that will help you all the way. For all types of decks, we visit the job site to make sure that the design matches the surroundings and that it completes all your family needs.

Another thing you do not have to worry about is the safety of your family during the construction of the deck. Your safety and your pure satisfaction are our main concerns from the moment you contact us until we say goodbye and we let you enjoy your new front and rear decks.
Can we choose a front or rear deck or do we need both?
It all depends on your family needs and the architecture. If you want both, and the surroundings permit it, you can choose both. Most homeowners, especially in the Chicago suburbs, focus on the rear decks. While the front decks are meant for improving the look of the house and can have little gardens and benches included, the rear decks are the ones adding more space to your home. Even if they are enclosed or opened, they are treated like that extra room that gives you the ability to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends. Even so, in the end, it is up to you which one you consider.
How important are the maintenance of the front and rear decks?
