Screened Porch with Trex Decking

Outdoor Living: A Bright Screened Porch

Sandi and Roger hired us to rebuild their existing deck and with a new beautiful screened porch to create an all-seasons room that allows them to appreciate their backyard views. The new Trex deck is a functional deck product solution that is easy to maintain and durable to last for years. The custom screen porch was built around their beloved landscaping, which involved unique details that not only solve structural challenges but also provide an interesting design detail. This porch project involved re-roofing the back of the home, skylights, new paint, and screens rather than windows for a greater connection to the outdoors. Roger and Sandi are thrilled about our workmanship, attention to detail, and they love to show off their new outdoor living room.

Project Details

Up for the challenge

They asked us to build around their lilac bushes, so we designed a covered porch with “clipped corners.” This created a challenge because it is nearly impossible to frame an exposed beam, vaulted ceiling with clipped corners with wood rafters. We brought in our structural engineer and worked with him to engineer a “flitch” beam, which consists of a 3/16-in. steel plate sandwiched between 2×8 roughsawn rafters.
