Maryland Deck to Screened-in Patio Transformation

Many might ask why not just re-do the deck? Well, there are a few reasons why that wouldn’t work for this homeowner, and they choose a deck to screened-in patio option instead. Let’s do a quick rundown of the top two reasons. You can find even more project details on the blog about this Maryland home.

First, the deck was poorly made. (It can happen more than we’d like to admit.) It would be a complete demo and rebuild. That might seem extreme, but it’s the only way we provide a lifetime warranty on our workmanship. Often the work isn’t salvageable. Secondly, the homeowner had no protection from the elements. Which was a big must-have. Having a deck would not allow for a roof.

When working on additions like this, we consider the roofline, windows, and how this all works with the existing house structure. A raised deck would not allow for the same pitch roof without looking horrible and butting up against the second-story windows. Therefore a screened-in patio was the solution that fits the bill.
