Decking and Porches

Wanting a new deck or porch added on to your home?  The options are huge when it comes to decking and porches.  

What are you going to use your deck and porch for?  

  • party area, relaxing area, grilling, vegetable or flower growing area?  The possibilities are endless.

Knowing how you are going to use this space is where Larry and All Phase Construction Plus, LLC comes in.  It all starts with a conversation.

Budget is always part of the plan.  Are we going with composites, PVC and other materials that are low maintenance?  Or are we going with treated wood that will need to be pressure washed and treated on a 1-2 year cycle?

Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Your Site Views, Yard and Elevation
  • Type of Deck Railing do you want?
  • Traffic pattern, stairs and access from the house.
  • Utilize the space with proper planning.
  • Type of material

Knowing your need and wants helps when considering the dick or going to a porch option. As a rule of thumb, a porch that’s 6 feet deep provides enough square feet for comfortable seating spots. Eight to 10 feet will allow for a small dining table and chairs.

Is the porch going to be enclosed?  A three or four season option. Heating, ceiling fans all come into play.  Do not rush, take the time and explore all your options.
