Solid Ground Homes & Remodeling is a building company based out of Ramsey, MN. 

We focus on building new homes with ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms), Additions, Remodels, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Garages, Basement Finishes, Insurance Restoration, Decorative Concrete, Decks, Windows, and incorporate proven technologies that help with energy efficiency & comfort.  I guess this makes us a wise builder, and we intentionally choose these technologies to improve our project performance.

 

 When it comes to Decks, Porches, & Patios, our approach . . . .

  • Is based on The Solid Ground Building Philosophy, we begin by helping you sort through a process of answering simple questions that compound to our understanding of your goals and values.
  • Means that this Deck, Porch, or Patio IS the opportunity to make the decisions you want and need. 
  • Says that we could rely on experience alone to help you with this.  Of course, if we only rely on our experience, we are likely to just produce something we already produced for someone else.  Sometimes this experienced approach is enough.  We always prefer to build for you and your Family. 
  • Demonstrates that we prefer to use our intelligence.  Put simply, this involves us using our ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills. 
  • Requires us to focus a lot of attention on providing a solid structure and building envelope for your project.
  • Involves getting to the heart of what you want, and applying our expertise to help you with these desires and goals for your family.

More Considerations. . .

Decks can be fun, elegant, functional, operational, beautiful, and elaborate centerpieces to the exterior of a building.   Whether you are just trying to create more livable space, run a long set of stairs to the lake, or do a complete yard and landscape plan, we can help with your project. 

The products we have to work with today have come a long ways in durability, design capabilities, and product selection.  We have access to many different composites PVC, and manufactured maintainence-free decking.   For those who would simply not build a deck without REAL wood, do not  fret, standard green treated and unfinished cedar options ARE available.  Teak and many other Exotic Natural Wood species are also at our convenience for incorporation in many areas and circumstances.

Solid Ground is not in the market of "pushing" a specific brand of decking material or attaining pre-negotiated price points, hoever, we do encourage customer thoughtfulness and goal oriented decision making.  We simply help you figure out the right deck or patio solution to suit your needs, and then we ensure courteous installations by knowledgeable professional carpenters.

Things to think about:

-          Is the deck or patio a stand alone detail or is it part of a bigger picture?

-          Do you want maintenance free products or do you prefer wood?

-          Are you planning on any special type of functions in this area?

-          Is durability a priority? 

-          Are costs a priority on your deck or patio investment?

In terms of broader goals, you can ask these 4 questions as well:

-          What do I want from my deck but currently do not have? (Achieve)

-          What do I have with my home or landscape that I like & want to keep? (Preserve)

-          What is it that I don’t have with my home or landscape and never want to experience? (Avoid)

-          What is it that I don’t want but currently experience with my home or landscape? (Eliminate)

We would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how we can help with your Deck and Porch project planning and details.
