Backyard decks provide an excellent space for entertaining. They are a wonderful place to enjoy your family and offer a high return on investment when looking to sell your home. Replacing or renovating your deck can improve safety, aesthetics, and your overall enjoyment of your backyard.
One Sycamore family discovered this when the professionals at Ken Spears Construction transformed their outdoor living space. Call the pros for an update to your existing deck when it has become worn and needs updating.

The Ken Spears Construction Solution
As with each client, we met with the family in their Sycamore home for an in-person consultation. We discussed how they use the space and what they envision for the perfect outdoor oasis. Once we developed a plan, we began our proven home remodeling process that we’ve been using since the beginning to deliver the space of their dreams.
Our team of professionals went to work removing the existing exterior decking. Our clients decided against a deck and instead chose a large patio with a cover. We worked to incorporate the modern design with the home’s existing style. We poured a large stamped concrete pad, the perfect choice for a home patio due to its affordability and durability. Next, we used cedar and pine to frame the space and installed a 16′ X 20′ patio cover with skylights to offer shade but allow natural light. This Sycamore family started with an outdated, out-of-shape deck that provided no shade on sunny days. Ken Spears Construction invigorated the space, made it more spacious, and enabled them to gather with family and friends with shading and just enough natural light. Our clients were pleased as we found out during our final walk through and presentation of their two-year general warranty.
