Serving Southern Michigan, Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Wyoming
Working with in building codes and restrictions are sometimes difficult. This customer had existing non-conforming deck that needed to be removed and replaced. Due to current building restrictions we could not tear down more than 75% of the original deck. Our expert design consultants were able to find the solutions to the problems during the 1st visit. So we took off all existing decking and handrails. Added support posts and beams up to code. Current floor joists were 2' on center so we added a floor joist between each of the existing joists making the entire deck joist layout now 12" on center. We then resurfaced the deck and added new handrail to complete the project.
The goal of the customer was to make their home warmer and update the look. We accomplished this by removing the existing sun faded brittle siding and adding 1 inch styrofoam insulation and did a complete house wrap. When then used our 4-D siding in Forest green. Making for a crisp clean finish on the home. The customer and neighbors loved the look.
Rotten wood in valleys replaced, Ice and water shield on low slopes, new ridge vent and chimney flashed.
Steve M. sent Boyd this text "Can't express to you how great the roof looks
and they cleaned up everything!( I should have let them in my garage too...Ha!)
Please convey my heartfelt approval of your companies work."
The home owner in Sturgis MI wanted a unique look so when Mitch came out for the consultation he explained the durability and stability that comes with using cedar for the deck. “We now know we made a fantastic choice choosing a cedar deck to enjoy our summers by the lake.”
