Maintenance-Free Outdoor Living Design

July 15, 2020

When you’ve got a beautiful backyard, you should enjoy it to the fullest. Hatchett can design and build a maintenance-free sunroom and outdoor living space that you and your family will enjoy year ’round. Check out this recent project of ours in Virginia Beach.

Hatchett Sunroom Addition Maintenance-Free Materials

Originally, this house only had a small wooden deck on the back.  It was good for enjoying occasional mild days in the Spring and Fall, but it wasn’t a comfortable place to relax or entertain during the rest of the year. By adding a sunroom and a new covered deck, these homeowners can now enjoy their backyard regardless of the season or forecast.

To further extend their hours of enjoyment, they selected maintenance-free materials for this design. The sunroom windows are PVC casement windows with transoms. The interior walls, ceiling and the tongue & groove flooring are all PVC as well. Then they chose a standing seam metal roof to finish the room.

Maintenance-Free Decking & Railings

We also used maintenance-free PVC materials for the decking and stadium steps that stretch across the entire rear of their home. The railings are vinyl with aluminum pickets. To provide shade from the sun and shelter from the rain, we covered the porch as an extension of their sunroom roof.

For comfort and convenience, we added ceiling fans, additional electrical outlets and a gas line for a new grilling station. Under the deck, the vertical PVC lattice provides hidden storage with access doors on either end.
