Decking Contractor in Collegeville PA

It was time to replace this older pressure treated deck. The deck required too much maintenance, and we found the structure was no longer safe. We built a new deck to meet code requirements, and used Trex composite decking with a contrasting railing for a good look and many years of low maintenance enjoyment.

Custom decks are one of R&M’s specialties. Nothing is more rewarding than helping homeowners create a Dream Space in the Backyard.  One that can allow them to extend their entertaining and living space from inside their home into the backyard. The ideal deck should fit the esthetic style as well as structure of the house. It should also fit the  personality, preferences, and needs of the owner. The deck should be constructed with easy-to-maintain materials  that allow use year-round as much as possible. We also believe it should be built to the highest of standards for years of worry-free use.

Corona Virus Notice

May 11, 2020

We are happy to report that we are back at work as of May 1. We are doing our best to follow the guidelines and restrictions Governor Wolf has in place during this health emergency. We are glad to be back at work again, and as always, our focus remains to work safely and as productively as conditions allow. We are mindful of those who can’t yet return to work and the people whose livelihoods put them at increased risk yet continue to serve. We are especially thankful for our clients who continue to support us through this pandemic.

As you can imagine, our schedule looks quite different after being away for five weeks. We’ll work through this though and should have a better idea soon of what things will look like going forward. Our suppliers are working to get back to normal, and we are fortunate to have relationships with good people built over many years.

These are trying times that call for patience and understanding as we all continue the precautions required to keep us safe. While so much is out of our control, we also have opportunities to help others – with food for the local food bank, checking in safely with those who may be lonely, and support for restaurants offering take out and other local businesses. We’re all stressed, and still need to be kind to the people we meet. We have faith that we will get through this together!

With all good wishes for health and prosperity,

The R & M Construction Co. Team

Home Remodeling in Oaks PA

 

The owner of this older home in Upper Providence Township wanted to make some substantial changes to improve the appearance and function of the home.

The porches were rebuilt to add a feeling of welcome.

The side porch steps were moved to point to the driveway, in a direct line to the door. Both porches feature composite and PVC materials for great appearance, durability, and low maintenance, with black railing providing a classic touch. The new concrete walkways serve the porch and the rear deck.

The floor plan of the house left the kitchen closed off from the living room, and the small dining room didn’t function well to provide enough seating. We wanted to open the space to allow for comfortable family gatherings, with the cook being part of the group, rather than tucked away in the kitchen.

We always use a professional to specify the beam required to support the structure above when we remove a bearing wall. Safety is always the most important part of our work.

The kitchen became a focal point, and truly the heart of this home.

The old breakfast nook wasn’t an inviting space, and it’s now better used for additional and very convenient pantry space.

Baking is one of the owner’s hobbies, and this kitchen is ideal for it, with the double wall ovens and large island providing a great workspace. Don’t you just look at this and think, “Christmas cookies!”

The open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings now, with lots of room to mingle. The cook will always be in the midst of the fun!

This is a great old farmhouse in East Coventry. The kitchen is in an addition that was added to the back of the house some years ago. We removed the bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room to open the space and supported the floor structure for the large island.  We added some nice modern touches like the heated floor, great lighting, and up to date appliances. It keeps the farmhouse feel with the glass front cabinets, farmhouse sink, and traditional cabinet style. The bathrooms are elegant and functional, with the same clean design that brings comfort and style to this home.
