Ground Level Deck Idea: Three Season Porch With Sunspace Windows

Homeowners that prefer to expand the time period they’re able to enjoy their deck often opt for a three season porch or a four season room.  In the past, screens were the primary way three season porches were enclosed.  For homeowners that want to extend the use of their three season porch as long as possible, we recommend the use Sunspace Porch windows.  Spanning from the floor to the ceiling, they create a sense of openness.  Don’t let the term “window” deceive you.  The product is actually a polycarbonate that holds up well to Mother Nature, but can still be washed like an ordinary window.  An advantage of porches with Sunspace Windows have over screened in porches is that maintenance is easier because dust and pollen cannot penetrate the windows.

Utilize Composite Decks To Bring Your Backyard Ideas To Life

When it comes to the construction of a deck, most homeowners opt for composite deck designs over wooden ones.  While this decision may cost more upfront, it prevents the need for the tedious task of future deck staining.  For homeowners that love the look and feel of a wooden deck, it’s highly recommended that a maintenance-free railing system be installed.  The most popular Minneapolis low maintenance deck material the homeowners we work with opt for is Zuri®.  Designed to emulate the look of exotic wood, this deck wins favor with homeowners for its beauty and unmatched durability for years to come.

Consider The Elements When Adding Or Remodeling A Deck

As a general rule, the darker the deck color, the more heat it absorbs, causing a hot surface temperature.  Placement of the deck also matters.  South facing decks tend to have the hottest surfaces and warrant the installation of a canopy system.

MN Deck Installation Reviews:

"The guys who built our deck were very courteous and responsive. There were a couple KDAT boards we didn't like because of some big cracks and we showed them and they replaced them without a problem. After the project was finished they sent out their own Lindus inspector who then showed me some other things that we had not noticed and was sending them back out to take care of. We were really impressed with this.  The initial consultation was very informative about a lot of different products out there today. What they are made of, how they are made, how they hold up, and what is best for your personal budget."

"We had Lindus do our roof in Plymouth in 2020 and a deck replacement on our home in 2021 to 2022 over winter. Everything was done on time, correctly and for a reasonable price, (not inexpensive but material chosen a large factor in that.) The old adage you get what you pay for applies to construction work and Lindus provided good value."

"I recently needed my 22 year old wooden deck replaced and contacted Lindus Construction. Dave, the sales rep, was very responsive and answered my questions. He even looked at the other estimates I received and went over them line by line to explain the differences and signed with Lindus. Chad and Logan did the tear down and rebuild of my deck and they were great! Very efficient, cleaned up the area and constructed the deck in a couple of days. I love it! It looks beautiful and is very well constructed. Then a couple of weeks later, Josh from Lindus called to ask to inspect the deck. I couldn't believe it. Lindus has their own inspectors! I've never seen that before. If you need a new deck, I'd highly recommend contacting Lindus Construction. They aren't the cheapest...but they are the best quality!"
