A night out on a covered deck is a fantastic way to spend an evening. Covering your deck can greatly increase the amount of time you spend outdoors without sacrificing comfort. Create a cozy space to host parties, a shaded area for hot summer days, and a safe space outside from pests.
We have built lots of covered decks in all shapes and sizes. Some of them have open sides, some are enclosed with screens. Our talented carpenters do all the work, so we don’t need to hire sub-contractors. We are specialized in covered decks, and while we don't build sunrooms, we do install the roofing and siding for our covered decks.
Take a look at these options to get an idea of what you might like for your covered deck:
Basic Roof Styles
Hip Style Roof
This is our most popular style of roof. It can be built with an octagon front or a straight front.
This is the most versatile roof style. It can be adapted to fit almost any house, and can easily be screened in for a 3 season room.
Porch Style Roof
This is generally the most cost-effective roof style. However, it can only be used for small to medium sized porches on certain types of houses.
All of these roof styles can be customized with many options, as well. Check out some of the features you can display on your covered deck:
Columns or Posts
Whether you're looking for round columns, or square posts, we can help you. From the design stage, if you let us know your ideas, we'll build in right in to our layout.
Are you looking for more vertical space? Or do you like to feel cozy? We can help you find what you need with an open vault ceiling or closed-in ceiling. We can add skylights, and even ceiling fans to your covered deck for that extra appeal, and comfort.
There are ton of lighting options when it comes to a covered deck. Recessed lighting, low-voltage lighting, and step lighting just to name a few.
A Custom Process
We love to try new things. We have added some really cool options to our covered decks over the years, including outdoor kitchens, bar tops, benches, planter boxes, and stone pillars to name a few. So, if you have an idea or a picture of something that you want to be included, just let us know. All of these styles can be screened in partially, or fully.
Having a partially covered deck allows for serious versatility. This will give you the option of sitting in sun on cooler days, or staying cooler in the covered area on hot days. You can also add some patio heaters to extend the outdoor season. Our customers have added a lot of cool features to their covered decks, from ceiling fans and lighting to outdoor TVs. All of these things will add to the appeal of your outdoor space.
If you would like a covered deck but your budget only allows for decks that are a little simpler, let us know during the design process. For a very little extra cost, by adding a few posts and footers, your deck can be designed to support a roof. In the future, a roof can easily be added without re-doing your existing deck. If you're looking for something a little different, like a Gazebo, we would be happy to help you build it, too. At Decks-R-Us, we work with our customers to find their ideal outdoor space.
