The old deck was rotten, we replaced the deck with a bigger deck and added a screened in porch.
I used the minitrack screen porch system from screen tight and the customer loves their new screened in porch
The deck was so rotten it was unsafe to walk on and ready to collapse, notice how the far side sags, the deck was not built to code.
before picture of the rotten deck
We installed screen over the floor joist before we installed the decking.
we installed screen underneath the decking boards
Notice how the bull nose on each step plains with the other, that is code and how steps are supposed to be built.
The steps are done, with solid kick plates
The porch roof is built and plywood installed, now we are installing the asphalt shingles.
In order to correctly roof the porch we had to remove shingles from the existing roof
I used the minitrack system from screen tight, i was able to install the screen from the inside using this system, it comes in white or bronze
I used tongue and groove to fill in the gable above the brick vaneer
There was no existing porch light to get power from but there was a receptacle, we installed a ceiling fan on a switch and two receptacles
Here is the finished porch, gutters have been installed and the tongue and groove ceiling was stained prior to installation.

here is a look at the deck framing from the under side, we ran the joist parallel to the house so that the decking will have no butt joints
