Enjoying Your Deck Year-Round

Porch and Yard

You can enjoy your deck or porch all year round – even in Minnesota. The professionals at Dupont Construction and Remodeling are experts in designing and building decks for every season. Call for a free consultation today, and we’ll help you find the back deck design of your dreams for the outdoor space you’ve always wanted. 

We have over twenty years of experience crafting high-quality and low-maintenance decks, sunrooms, wrap-around porches, and four-season rooms. Our craftsmen are experts in building quality custom decks, facelifts, repairs, and more. 

As certified contractors, we are qualified to address any structural or building code compliance needs. We can tackle your refacing needs and also attend to any structural issues or building upgrades.

Our goal is to provide you with a beautiful, custom, maintenance-free space that you can enjoy any time of the year. We’ll work with you every step of the way, from planning to building and clean up. 

Dupont Construction and Remodeling uses only high-quality materials, from natural wood to composites or PVC material like Trek, Azek and Timber Tech. 

We’re committed to building the right outdoor space for your home, whether it’s a terrace for two or a huge party deck. A well-made porch not only adds value to your home, but it also helps you enjoy the outdoors all year long. 


There is no shortage of ways to enjoy your home’s deck during the warmer months. Whether it’s firing up the grill, dining al fresco, or quietly sipping your coffee in the morning sun, a deck adds joy to your summer. 

If your family loves to soak up the soon, consider designing a deck with plenty of open space but also some shade for respite. A pergola, gazebo, or partial covering are great options to make shade zones perfect for napping and relaxing. 

To help keep small children busy – or spoil your pup – filling up a splash pool with water and toys is a great way to spend a hot day. Having a deck can help parents multi-task by giving them a birds-eye view of kids playing in the yard while they do something else. 

For those who love to entertain, the pros at Dupont Construction and Remodeling can help you design the ultimate party space. 

Our talented designers can also help you maximize your outdoor space with custom multi-tiered decks. Stairs and separate entertainment areas help create micro-zones that encourage mingling during parties. 

With a little help from us, your home could be the go-to party spot of the summer. Think lots of seating, cocktail rails, built-in benches, counters, and speakers, or a fire-pit.

A wrap-around porch can double the square footage of your home so that you can increase your guest list! 



Having a versatile deck is the best way to get the most out of the unpredictable fall weather. You never quite know what temperatures autumn will bring – it could be hot, buggy, and muggy or cold and windy. 

Installing a covered deck will protect you from intense sun or an unexpected rain shower. A screened-in porch eliminates the need to swat bugs all night or wear insect repellent in your own home. Having the option of ceiling fans or a heating element will help you enjoy the outdoor space no matter the season. 



Winters in Minnesota are notoriously long and tough. The days are short and sometimes it feels like got up before the sun and came home after it set. 

Having an energy-efficient four-season porch can help you beat the winter blues. Choose a design with lots of windows to let in tons of natural light. All that sunshine is great for houseplants, too. 

You may want to fill the space with hardy plants like pothos, sansevieria, peace lily, and English ivy. Having green growing things adds life and warmth to your home during the winter. For the ultimate luxury, consider installing a hot tub. There’s no better feeling than being warm and cozy inside while it’s cold and snowy outdoors. 




After surviving all those cold months, there’s no better feeling than peeling off your bulky jacket and reacquainting yourself with your backyard. 

If you’re a gardener at heart, starting your spring seeds and annuals on your deck makes it convenient to care for them. We are happy to build in flower beds and boxes for the plant-obsessed.  As the days get longer and warmer, you’ll naturally be spending more time outside. It’s a great opportunity to assess your deck and see if it needs repairs or a facelift. 

Our expert craftsmen can inspect your deck and check for safety concerns like rotting wood and loosened fasteners. We’ll give you an honest estimate and work with your budget repair, restore, or re-do your deck to make it safe and beautiful. 

There’s no wrong way to enjoy a deck or porch. Maybe you want it to be your own personal oasis of relaxation and calm, full of plants and water features. Or perhaps you want it bursting with color, music, people, and cocktails. 

No matter what you use it for, we can help you make it.
