Add Value to Your Home with a Covered Outdoor Living Space

Warmer weather is finally here, which makes it a great time to get outside and enjoy a new gazebo, deck or outdoor living design! Covered outdoor living spaces are among our most popular installations – and with good reason. If you want shade as well as protection from bugs, wind and other elements while still being able to enjoy the great outdoors, then a screened gazebo or covered patio is probably right for you. Northern Virginia’s beautiful climate allows for comfortable outdoor living and recreation in the spring and summer months. Take advantage of it with custom shade options for your backyard space!


We offer customization at every level of the construction process of your covered outdoor living space. As you consider your unique space, think about different elements you might want to complement it, such as a deck railing, different under-ceiling materials and finishes or different colored products. At Distinctive Deck Designs, our skilled construction team can create a covered outdoor living space made to your specifications. As a Trex Pro Platinum builder and Best of Houzz winner, Mark Shriner and the Distinctive Deck Design team are recognized as experts in constructing all manner of cabanas, gazebos and screened porches.

Our Process

Once you decide that a covered outdoor living space is right for you we will make a professional assessment of your space. No matter how simple or complex, we will make sure you get the outdoor space that is right for you. In fact, we specialize in creating multi-level designs that allow for different activities in different areas. For example, we could install a covered space for dining and a different patio space you can enjoy while the kids run and play in the backyard. In addition to your gazebo or covered deck, our team can install customized outdoor lighting to enhance your space. Landscape lighting can help to highlight certain planting beds or trees while path lights will ensure a safe walkway for guests.  Deck and patio lights will allow you to keep the party going or enjoy a quiet night with the family long after the sun sets.

Add Value to Your Home

Our team can even create an outdoor fireplace that complements your new covered gazebo, patio or composite deck design. Each new element that we construct for your adds enjoyment for you and your family and increases the value of your home by adding living space. A covered outdoor area adds functional space that can be used throughout the seasons and appeals to nearly everyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors with a little more comfort.
