Modern style patio doors

Adding a patio to your home not only adds a pleasant outdoor space, but the patio doors and adjacent windows allow more light into the house as well.

The length and floorplan of your home and the slope of your yard will determine the length and width of the patio you can add. The longer the patio, the more windows and patio doors you can add to let light in. These photos are of doors to a 9′ patio and a 12′ patio.

Choosing your doors


Choose a style of door that will complement the style of your home and your existing doors and windows. Traditional style homes may want traditional doors with pane inserts and matching windows, while more modern home styles may be enhanced with a cleaner, “no pane” look.

Professional in-ground pool installation

We build in-ground pool

We build in-ground pools – and patios, too!

It’s that time of year again – the time when families start to wonder, “Wouldn’t it be great if we had a pool in the backyard?”

We Can Help!

Adding an in-ground pool takes planning. Where you put it depends on building and homeowner’s association regulations, as well as the size and slope of your property and the type of soil it has.

We’re putting this pool in a yard with a slope. It takes a lot of work and know-how to get it just right. This will be finished soon and ready for the owners to enjoy, along with the flagstone pool deck we put in around it.

Do you have questions about putting a pool in your yard?

Contact us for a no-cost, no-obligation on-site consultation to determine the type of pool that will best fit your yard, your budget, and your family.
