Covered Sun Porch Cleveland

Covered Deck Contractors Cleveland OH

This covered porch in Cleveland has a great deal of unique detail and is a great addition to the house. The overall goal was to build a rear porch onto the home that kept the integrity of the original, old brick style house while simultaneously creating an atmosphere that feels like a relaxing refuge for the homeowner in Cleveland.


The Therma Tru Hinged Patio Fiber-Classic Oak Door and built-in screens that were custom made by our contractors in Cleveland fit each opening with precision. The sun-porch has cedar decking–a perfect compromise between the quality of composite decking and treated lumber and right in the middle as far as price. The black iron Afco handrail and balusters were selected specifically to be as invisible as possible as the Cleveland area homeowner did not want the railing to play into the look and feel of the covered deck project. Finally, with a fan and some patio furniture, this customer had found her secret getaway at last.


JM Design Build agreed to construct a covered deck on the rear of the home in Cleveland approximately 12’ x 22’ in size. The basic project looked something like this:

  • Provide all necessary permits, drawings, and inspections
