In the years we've been in business, there's been many an
occasion where a customer comes to us seeking the best "bang for the
buck" - looking for the least expensive way to make the biggest
improvement in their home.
And, as you might imagine, since we do so many kitchen and bath
remodeling jobs, sometimes people automatically assume that
remodeling the kitchen or re-doing the bath is always going to be
our 1st recommendation. Well, to some degree this is true - we are
somewhat biased towards kitchen and baths, but this is only because
those are the most popular home upgrades which people ask for.
On the other hand, we can honestly say that a new rear-deck will
probably be the least expensive "big" upgrade you can do for your
Some of the advantages of a new rear-deck include:
- On a comparison basis, a deck gives you the most space for the
- More often than not, there are less space limitations on the
deck design, so there's more room to do things in a fully
- A properly built deck requires very little maintenance
- A well built deck is an excellent place to relax in the Summer
- When we build your deck, we can put your barbeque or grill
exactly where you want it.
- Decks are typically much easier & faster to build than other
home upgrades - there's less waiting until you can enjoy the fun.
- We used advanced fastener systems - we keep ugly assembly
items out of view
- We can build decks using a wide variety of lumber types:
Pressure Treated, Redwood, Teak - even exotics such as Ironwood
- We also offer the newer engineered materials - both for
longevity and to protect the woodlands
- We use only top quality material and we build our decks to
- All decks we build have a secure, solid foundation installed
- We design our decks with your convenience in mind - we sit
with you & plan the exact deck you want - before construction
If you want some additional outdoor living space and are thinking
about a deck, please call and ask for a consultation - we're
happy to come over and see what your yard space will best allow.
In addition to decks, we also design and build
porches, porticos, breezeways and entranceways. In fact, one of our
specialties is to custom match existing porches and stairs which
need to be rebuilt.
If you have a classic New England home, one of the
many beautiful Colonials or other style homes you'll typically see
in the Worcester MA area, we can exactly duplicate and replace any
part of your home that's damaged or worn out - indoors or out.
In the Worcester area, many times you'll see a
beautiful older home which has a sagging porch or stairs. Other
times, storm damage wreaks some of the classic woodwork on an older
home. And other times, outdoor stairs get infested by carpenter ants
or termites and need replacement,
In any situation, whether you want new construction
with a modern design or classic style restoration, we can plan
and implement the exact solution you're looking for. It's not an
exaggeration - we can fix, repair, replace or install any porch of
any kind - we've been doing it for many years.
All season porches
In some situations, where a rear-deck isn't the
right solution, we'll recommend a patio and we have many years of
experience installing them - poured cement, concrete blocks, paving
bricks or stone.
Walkways & Outdoor Lighting
In addition to decks, porches and patios, we can
also install any new walkways you'll need to access what we build
for you. With or without lighting (at your choice), we'll design and
build a solution that's tailor fit to your home.
You want it, we build it
For each and every outdoor build we do, we have a complete team
to handle everything from start to finish. We do it all, from
excavation and foundations, to the complete build - and we can finish
the job with your choice of landscaping elements.
When you hire R&K to build in your yard, the only thing you have
to do is make the phone call - we do everything else - from start to
finish, we make your home look beautiful.
