A new or upgraded deck

With more of us spending time at home, a lot of people are looking to expand their space. Decks are a great way to add more room for entertaining and for a wonderful change of scenery. If you are not sure where to start when it comes to a deck, we might be able to help. Here's a guideline that will walk you through every decision you’ll need to make for your new deck. You can also reach out to a service provider and get started that way.

Finished Basement

Looking to add lots of livable space? Finished basements can create the room—or rooms—you need to accommodate your growing family. Finished basements are also a great place to have your very own in-home theater or game room! Think a home theater is out of reach? Think again! If you are finishing your basement anyway - an in-home movie theater is a great addition that everyone in the family will love! It's also a great reason to invite your neighbors over and get to know them. Learn more about home theaters.
