Decks, Porches & Patios

Adding outdoor living space is a popular way to expand your home without breaking your budget. We can help you decide on the type of deck, patio or porch that best fits your home and your life style.


Tired of painting? Why not side your home instead? When you consider the cost --and hassle-- of painting your home every 3-5 years, siding becomes an inexpensive way to keep your house looking good long into the future. Check out our Painting vs. Siding cost comparison.

Basement Finishing

Looking for a relatively inexpensive way to increase your home's living space? The answer might be right below you. Finishing an existing basement is often an easy way to address the space needs of a growing (or active) family. We'll help you design a floor plan for your basement that fits your needs, and finish your basement without driving you out of the house.
