Exterior Facelift

on Tuesday, 22 March 2016.

A new entry and expanded decking created wonderful outdoor living areas for the homeowners to enjoy.

At this bay front home the prime views of the Rehoboth Bay had become underappreciated due to the lack of enjoyable outdoor space, so the homeowners decided to make an outdoor living upgrade. Turning to Boardwalk Builders for help expanding their deck overlooking and improving their curb appeal we were able to revamp their outdoor space without impeding on the views of the bay.

A facelift on the front of the house included new ipe decking, refinishing the existing front door, and the installation of columns around the stairs. The new decking combined with the columns and the refinished front door created a warm welcoming entryway. The ipe decking - used throughout the exterior remodel - provides a cohesive design between the entry way and the rear and side decks. The refinished front door adds texture to compliment the bold red columns that were installed. Matching red gable brackets were added to the roof to balance the red pillars. The new entryway is a bold welcome to the homeowners and their guests.

On the bay-facing rear of the home, Boardwalk Builders was able to replace the existing deck with matching Ipe decking and a new cable rail. The new deck has a larger footprint than the one it replaced, creating enough space for an outdoor kitchen area. The homeowners can now grill while overlooking the bay. A stair was added to access the backyard and under deck area for easy access to the driveway and outdoor shower. The existing screened in porch was expanded and revamped with matching Ipe decking. The expansion of the screened in porch created enough space for a sitting table and outdoor lounge area. The cable railing replaced the existing wooden railing, and new light fixtures and an outdoor fan were installed. The homeowners added a new pergola next to the screened in porch to create a shady outdoor area. They can now choose to enjoy the bay views from the open deck, under the shade of a pergola, or from the comfort of their screened in porch.

An additional private deck and pergola were added to East side of the house overlooking the canal. This new deck receives morning sun and is aptly called the Coffee Deck, so a full pergola offers a shady reprieve from the summer sun. The Coffee deck features matching decking, cable rail, and pergola and completes the new outdoor space.

The completed upgrade created a brighter, more welcoming entryway that connected to the expanded outdoor living spaces and tremendously boosted the curb appeal. The expanded screened in porch and outdoor kitchen allow the homeowners to enjoy their outdoor spaces throughout the seasons. The addition of a coffee deck takes advantage of the morning sun and offers a perfect space to watch the sunrise. Does your outdoor living space need a spring upgrade?
