Decks & Patios Service

Why confine your living space to your home’s interior when you can expand your horizons with a stunning deck? Imagine the contentment of sipping your morning coffee while watching the sun rise over your garden, or the fun of gathering friends for a barbecue on a balmy weekend without having to toil in a hot kitchen. 

A deck is a versatile structure that can be raised just a little above ground level, used to extend the second story of your house, or even located on your roof. It might even occupy more than one level. Along with enhancing your lifestyle, it can give you a nice return on your investment and boost your home’s curb appeal.

When it comes to materials, you can choose wood or composite. Whichever we provide will be of the highest quality, so your deck can last a long time, standing up to whatever our local weather dishes out. Each material has its pros and cons.

Nothing beats the natural beauty and feel of genuine wood. We use only the best lumber from Yankee Pine, and we weather-proof and seal it when we install a deck. While wood is less expensive than composite to install, it does require more maintenance. Caring for a wooden deck typically includes periodic power washing, staining, and resealing. 

Composite, a mix of wood particles and plastic, mimics the look of real wood boards. It comes in colors ranging from cool dark gray and light white to warm golden brown and red. It’s environmentally friendly and low maintenance, requiring only occasional sweeping and washing. But composite is pricier than wood, costing about 32% more installed, according to 

If you already have a deck, but it’s old and starting to rot, we can repair it or demolish and replace it. If you like your deck but just want more of it, we can expand it. Whatever deck services you need, you can count on us for superior craftsmanship as we install the framing, railing, flashing, joists and joist hangers, hidden fasteners, and ice and water shield, as well as sonotubes to help keep the footing strong. 

Would you like a patio, perhaps at the bottom of your deck stairs, to house your grill and some comfy outdoor furniture? We can take care of that, too. There are several materials that work well for patios in our climate:

  • Concrete can be poured as a slab or installed as pavers. It’s a durable, affordable choice.
  • Brick pavers are a classic choice that’s durable and aesthetically pleasing. While brick provides good drainage, it may crack in extreme cold.
  • Stone pavers provide natural appeal, with options including granite, sandstone, flagstone, limestone, and travertine. However, they can be costly and are less durable than concrete or brick.

Anthony and the team did a fantastic job with the demolition of a "porch" in our back yard that a previous homeowner did a terrible job building. Said previous homeowners basically just walled in the underside of our porch without installing a vapor barrier in the ground, and to add insult to injury the dryer exhaust was venting INTO this room. Needless to say, everything was quite rotten and nasty. Anthony came over and gave me a very reasonable estimate, then once work started everything was sorted within a couple days. They replaced the rim joist and any other rotted wood, re-insulated the underside of the porch and covered it up and cleaned everything up. It's so nice to not have to worry about it anymore, and the quality of the work AMS did is top notch. They really went above and beyond, coming back multiple times to address small issues with door alignment on the porch above. I would absolutely recommend AMS for any kind of renovation you need done.

The guys at AMS were great they gave us several options for our renovation which included replacing an old deck for a new bigger one and adding a new 4 season sunroom. Everything came out great and it was just what we wanted. Including mounting a tv to hide all the wires and a few other odd requests. The mantle for the fireplace was custom made for an electric insert we picked. Will definitely fire again.
