Cedar Shakes and Shingles was contacted about updating a existing wood deck system and at the same time adding a new cover screen porch. A new cedar shake roof had been installed by Cedar Shakes and Shingles for this customer a few years earlier at the property. Due to very strict HOA requirement a design that blended with the existing house structure and the landscape setting was very important. A natural open feel was wanted but also a more finished look inside the screen porch area was desired. This combination was achieved using updated picket rail design with a T&G floor system.
