Covered Porches

Decked Out Builders Is Committed to Excellence

“Porch time” is one of the best aspects of living in Northern Illinois & Southern Wisconsin. At Decked Out Builders, we love transforming your outdoor areas into welcoming and dynamic living spaces. A well-designed and beautifully built front or back porch can change the look and feel of your home, add much-needed living space, connect you with your neighbors, and protect you from the elements.

Covered porches not only add architectural beauty to any home, they also serve as highly functional space for your family and friends. Enjoy the outdoors within the comfort of your home.

Ideally you want your newly constructed covered porch to blend with your home. Hiring a professional that can not only take what you have been dreaming of for years and blending it with its existing structure is important. Your covered porch design should be created with the goal of it looking like it was originally built with the house.

Covered Porches Characteristics

When it comes to choosing a local porch builder contractor for your home’s covered porch design, look no further than Decked Out Builders! We know that your porch is more than just a slab of wood. A great porch design can completely transform your outdoor space. A custom designed porch can become your family’s outdoor living room, an eventful and entertaining meeting space for friends and family, or the perfect relaxation area to use as your own private escape. Are you looking to add a fresh look to your yard or house? Then call Decked Out Builders to help redesign your yard by adding a new patio cover, screened-in porches or or sunroom. 


We specialize in exterior home improvements which add space and function to your outdoor living area:

  • Patio Covers that provide shade and significantly lower outdoor temperatures
  • Sunrooms that extend your living space and allow you to enjoy your outdoor environment year-round, rain or shine


When choosing a design and layout for your new outdoor space, your porch project should be designed and constructed with your wants and needs in mind. Ready-made kits don’t offer nearly as much flexibility as an experienced, innovative contractor like Decked Out Builders offers. We will work with you to design and build the covered porch and outdoor space of your dreams.

The Value of Covered Porches

On 99% of homes we see in Northern Illinois & Southern Wisconsin, we can do a porch structure of some type, and most of the time we can fit an A-frame (or Gabled Roof) style roof structure. We are very experienced in installing roofs as we install many per year, and we embrace the challenge of designing and building a space that includes a roof structure.


In fact, studies show that creative outdoor living spaces are one of the best things you can do to increase the value of your property. If you would ever sell your home, a potential buyer expects a nice interior, kitchen, etc but when they step outback and see the outdoor living space that is really what sets your property apart.

The Dream of Covered Porches

The professional porch builders at Decked Out Builders are ready to help you create the perfect front, back or screened in porch to give you an ideal spot for grilling or relaxation. Sometimes we take what another builder did before us, like a patio, and make it bigger and better. Or we take something old like a worn out deck, tear it down, and build a new deck-patio-outdoor-kitchen combination in its place. Who doesn’t love relaxing on the back porch during the warmer months? When the weather outside is cooperative, there are few better places in your home to relax and unwind than outside on the porch. Whether it’s reading a book, spending time with your family, or simply getting some fresh air, a porch can be a beautiful and functional addition to your home. Our porch roof contractors will work tirelessly to give you the perfect porch roof that you’ve always wanted.

Enjoy Your Outdoor Space

As your covered porch builder, we can provide the ultimate outdoor living space for your home and family. When investing in your outdoor living space, it’s important to consider where you will get optimum use. Transforming your existing deck into a covered porch would be ideal if your deck was built to support such an addition. Unfortunately, almost all decks are not designed nor built to support the weight of a roof. Outside of not being able to support the weight of a roof, other obstacles include whether your deck is already the correct size and shape that you would like for your porch to be and whether it is attached to your home, where it is most convenient and usable.


Adding a fireplace to your covered porch will allow even more time outdoors. You might find it enjoyable to host a movie night by your fireplace on crisp evenings. If your family already gets ample use of your backyard, having an open porch is an obvious solution, as there are little or no boundaries between your porch and yard. This might be especially useful for families with pets. Open porches can add value to the way we use our existing outdoor amenities, such as play yards or grilling areas.
