This existing deck was 16' x 36' and was a challenge to span such an overhang with strength and security. Please note:
*Double 4x4 posts secured to existing weight bearing posts with 5/16" galvanized carriages bolts.
*Double 2x8" header beam with 2x8" rafters set 16" apart for maximum strength.
*Roof decking is of 5/8" plywood...not the particle board used by other builders.
*Roofing again contracted for 2 layers of membrane and tar paper and architectural shingles.
*5 year warranty on roofing.
* All posts and beams additionally secured with "hurricane clips" and brackets.
* Built above and beyond code...stronger and longer lasting.
Built by a Marine for a Marine.......
Customer is a former Marine (Thanks Hugh for your service!)
The process, as with all HJ projects, begins with strength for a long lasting structure.
1. A pressure treated top and bottom board are secured into header and concrete.
2. Pressure treated 4"x4" supports are bolted into place.
3. The bottom section (not seen) was then built with solid t&g pine, primed and painted before installation.
4. Factory painted aluminum screen frames were installed next.
5. This type of "bead in" screening assures a drum tight screen for years.
Enclose, roof and screened... to an existing deck or patio.

Semper Fi Fence and Deck also built the accompanying deck pictured above.
This screened in room (also in Cantebury Farms) was built onto an existing upper deck structure.
Tongue and groove "knee wall" which helps protect animals and the screen.
The roof was contracted to a local roofing company that provides a 3-5 year warranty against leaks or failure.
All supports of 4x4 posts and beams.
All lumber of Premium Pressure Treated to prevent mold, termites and decay.
This patio in Canteberry Farms was enclosed with 2x4 posts and tongue and groove pine for a great look. Unlike what a contractor will give you with staples and loose screen, this room has aluminum frame with bead to give a "drum tight" screen. The major commercial companies will charge $10-15,000 for a renovation like this. HJ can build this for you for less than half that amount..
Existing Deck is now a dry, bug free escape to enjoy all year round.
Taking an existing patio and enclosing with screen can allow you to enjoy summer afternoons without worrying about mosquitos and flies.
A covered patio instantly transforms a hot sunny patio into a cool place to enjoy the afternoon.
This home, also in a new subdivision in Grovetown, came without a covered patio because the contractor wanted $8500 to "upgrade" the patio. Semper Fi was able to provide this superior / extra strong patio roof about half of what the builder wanted.
As you can see, this addition of aluminum roofing, gives a waterproof area with complete shade for you or your pet.
Built with posts set in concrete...this overhang can withstand hurricane force winds.
The owners wanted save even more by painting themselves...although they liked the craftsman look.
A Patio can be a place for a cup of coffee, reading the paper or just relaxing after a hard day at work.
Why pay the builder thousands more, when Semper Fi can build it for you for a fraction of the cost?
