Trex Deck with Trex Rail & Lighting

This old wood deck was in major need of repair.  The hoe owner decided to recap the existing structure with two colors of Trex Transcend decking.  Add in the Trex Signature aluminum rail with post cap lighting and this will be a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy for years.  All maintenance free!


Trex Deck and Cedar Pergola

After much debate with the local township over the addition of a porch; Building Renewal, Inc. installed this 28′ x 12′ Trex deck on a beautiful lake home in the northwest metro.  The deck includes Trex Transcend Lava Rock decking and Westbury Aluminum Railing.  The following year the customer decided they really wanted that screened porch.  In order to get the variance approved, we designed a screen roofed pergola to enclose the deck.  The pergola consists of cedar framing with screen tight enclosure system, and custom built removable roof panels.


Capped Composite Deck with Spiral Staircase

This expansive 44′ x 15′ deck was repaired, added onto, and re-skinned with new decking, railing, and staircase.  The decking is a capped composite, with capped composite rail, accented by the glass rail viewing the lake.  The structural posts are wrapped with Azek PVC to add curb appeal and remove the maintenance of painting or staining the posts every couple years.  The custom built aluminum powder coated spiral staircase added the final touch to make this deck something special to be shared with family and friends for many years to come. 


Rooftop Trex Deck with Trex Signature Aluminum Rail

This was a very nice addition to this river front property.  The old deck was removed so the flat roof could be replaced.  Rather than putting back on the old deck, the customer chose to upgrade to maintenance free.  The Trex Enhance Decking combined with the Trex Signature Aluminum Railing give this deck a great look that will last much longer than traditional wood. 


Trex Deck with White Aluminum Railing

This compact 16′ x 8′ Trex deck was part of an addition project Building Renewal, Inc. built for one of our great customers.  The decking is Trex Select Winchester Grey.  The railing is White Westbury Aluminum Railing.  The structural posts are wrapped with Azek PVC to add curb appeal and remove the maintenance of painting or staining the posts every couple years.  The valence accent boards are also made of Azek PVC.  A beautiful addition to this home.


Covered Cedar Porch

This compact 14′ x 7′ Cedar deck was part of a addition project.  The decking and railing is constructed for red cedar.  The porch is covered by an addition to the home’s roof, extending out over the porch.  A great outdoor sitting area.


New (Old) Shed Addition

The goal of this customer was to restore their rotting shed to new, but to keep the vintage appeal.  We were able to acheive this through a custom plan to change the roofline and custom build new doors and siding to match the old.  A new life for an old shed.


Paver Patio, Paver Steps, & Exposed Aggregate Sidewalks

This large paver patio and water feature were added to expand upon the already beautiful views of this home’s backyard river.  The patio added a new outdoor cooking and entertaining area.  The new front stoop was a huge improvement for front curb appeal, and the sidewalks were a great improvement over the old dirt paths.  A very nice addition to this property.


New Concrete Sidewalk & Garage Apron

Tear out and replacement of an old concrete sidewalk and garage apron with some new accent siding around the front door.


Ice Dam Repair

Large ice dams ripped the gutters and fascia from the roof edge of this church.  Building Renewal was able to repair all damage to the substructure and install new fascia and gutters back to its original condition.  We also insulated the attic further to help prevent costly ice dams in the future.


New Concrete Sidewalk

Tear out and replacement of an old concrete sidewalk.
