The Best Room (not) In the House

Are you tired of battling with mosquitoes and bugs in the spring, summer and fall? Enjoy the great outdoors feeling while being protected by a nice new screen porch! Screen porches have changed from a want to a need with new home buyers for good reasons. They offer light sunshine mixed with shade and bug control. They are instantly your pets new favorite place with their own entrance and exit. Sit outside during a light rain and meditate. A glass of wine or bourbon just tastes better outside!

Are You Stuck Inside?

Are you tired of being stuck inside? Have grown tired of staring the same four walls? We have the solution! Gant Design + Build models and creates beautiful open-air and screen porches. Our porches can be built from scratch on a new composite deck or concrete patio with all the amenities. Relax under a soft breeze created from the overhead fan while you kick it on your new outdoor couch napping, reading your favorite book or watching the ball game. That’s right they specifically make televisions for outdoor spaces!

Tired of working from home indoors? Take your laptop and phone and plug in. Take that next conference call outside! Work is still going to be work but imagine how much nicer it will be working in the fresh air?

Match Your Home Style

At Gant Design + Build, we design porches to ensure they fit with the architecture style of your home. Our primary goal is to make your new porch look as if it was constructed when your home was built. We match the roofing, siding, gutters, downspouts, and trim of your home to ensure a seamless look and feel. We work with you to ensure every design detail matches as closely as possible to your existing home. Depending on the architecture of your home you may also choose from a variety of roof styles including gable, open gable, shed, or hip roof. This does not mean that you cannot add your own flare!

Matching the esthetic style of your home maximizes your investment. Most home buyers look for symmetry when purchasing a new home. Human beings’ eyes are automatically drawn to believe symmetry equals beauty.

Customized Porch Amenities

We offer various amenities for your porch to create the ultimate space where form meets function. A ceiling fan is a must for any outdoor space, but you do not have to stop there. Add recessed can lighting with a dimmer switch to set the mood in the evenings or additional outlets so everyone living in the home can plug in their electronics.  Add a fireplace or a LED fire pit appliance that changes colors to the music coming out of your outdoor speakers. Televisions do not have to be mounted to a wall now. Add a ceiling mounted cable and electrical outlet to install a ceiling mounted TV.

Maintenance Free

There is enough work for you to do around your house. We do not want to add to your list. We offer a lifetime workmanship guarantee along with all manufacture warranties, so our goal is to make your porch as maintenance free as possible. We install a vinyl ceiling treatment as part of our standard build. No need for paint or stain! We trim out each support post with a high paint adhesion PVC composite for a more maintenance free space. We build our screen porches with high quality aluminum and screening. Along with matching all the rest of your homes materials you get a maintenance free outdoor living space.

Custom Designs

We use the latest drone technology to customize your design. Each project renderings is made with your home incorporated into the design.


All of our projects come with a Gant Design + Build guaranteed lifetime warranty plus manufactures warranties.


Each completed project has scheduled follow up inspections at 3 weeks, 3 months and annually thereafter. We stand behind our work.

    Barry and his team built our paver deck and we are extremely satisfied. We were originally going to add a porch and due to zoning issues we were not able to proceed. Barry and the team patiently worked with us in finding a solution.
