As with our additions, we strive to use the sun to your advantage to gain as much sunlight during the winter months as well as a well-shaded, breezy area during the warmer months. We can design an outdoor living area using low maintenance PVC, masonry, wood or a blend of all three.
Value and Proper Construction
Exterior construction such as porches and sunrooms can not only add value to your home but can provide many years of use and enjoyment. The key to a properly constructed exterior structure is superior craftsmanship and the proper use of materials. If the wrong materials are used or installed in an improper manner, a patio or sunroom may fail or, at best, have a shortened life span. Distinctive Carpentry has many years of experience working with exterior grade products and with this knowledge and our unsurpassed craftsmanship, we will create the perfect outdoor structure customized to your tastes and needs.
Working hand in hand with our landscaping trade associates, we can blend your new structure into your existing landscaping or create an entirely new scheme that can include exterior lighting and/or water and fire features.
While no exterior structure is completely maintenance-free, many of the produces we use require only simple annual upkeep. We will provide you with all pertinent maintenance instructions for your structure and plantings as well as any material warranty information.
Distinctive Carpentry is certified by the Environmental Protection Agency as a certified renovator and will test the existing surfaces for the presence of lead paint before any project is started on a structure that was built before 1978. If lead paint is present all work will be completed in accordance with the EPAs Lead Renovation, Repair and Paint Rule. Following this procedure will add cost to your project but will protect not only the health of your children, yourself and the environment but also with ensure that no delays are created due to EPA enforcement actions due to code violations.
As with all of our projects, we will finish your job as per the original scheduled completion date. Upon final punch-list and inspections by township officials, your project will be complete. All workmanship is guaranteed for one year or when property is sold, whichever comes first.
