Recently we had the pleasure of installing a new screen porch and deck in East Cobb/ Marietta. Atlanta Curb Appeal standards are high when completing a porch installation. Safety, quality of materials and design are the main focus when planning a client’s outdoor oasis that will be a showcase piece to enjoy for years to come.
We asked Avi some questions about the project below.
Did they have a porch before or was this project from scratch?
No, they did not have a deck, but they did have a porch.
What did Atlanta Curb Appeal do exactly?
First we built the screen porch walls and installed a matching shingle roof. Second, we added a lower deck and a new set of stairs. At this point, we took the time to reinforce the old deck up to code, per inspections. Then we enclosed the area underneath allowing for added storage.
Did you do more than a back porch?
Atlanta Curb Appeal added a front portico and replaced the front door. We enjoy installing porticos; the transformation is always astonishing. Then we renovated two bathrooms in the home.
Did you do any electrical upgrades?
We added outlets, new outdoor floodlights and new can lights on the back porch.
Why did they decide to do this project?
They wanted to add a covered porch and extend their deck space so they could enjoy outdoor seating while covered from the sun and protected from mosquitos. We also added wiring for an outdoor TV. It’s the perfect package.
How did they find you?
Word of mouth. We have happy clients in their subdivision that recommended us.
What is the client planning for this new space?
The porch is mainly for the entertainment of kids and friends.
What was the biggest obstacle?
No obstacles. All permitting inspections passed the first time, and all work was finished in within budget and timelines.
How many days did it take?
The porch and deck project took just under four weeks. The small bathroom took a week and a half, and the master bathroom took three weeks. The portico took less than a week, including inspections. We did these projects in parallel and completed all work in about two months.
What did the clients think about Atlanta Curb Appeal?
They are so happy with the final results! They had a party to show off the work to their neighbors, and we’ve already started another project in this subdivision.
