My wife and I presented a challenging project for Doug. We wanted a warm weather, screened enclosure attached to our house. We have a sunroom that extends out of the center of the back of the house. Thus the sunroom kind of divides the back of the house in half. There is a deck attached to the back of the house. The deck essentially spans the entire back of the house, wrapping around the sunroom. Over the years we've purchased various gazebo type structures, commonly available at Lowes, Sears, etc. They worked fine, but we found that even with good care and maintenance they would wear out and need replaced. So we decided to look into an attached enclosure. We didn't want to enclose the entire wrap around deck, only a section off of the back and one side of the sunroom. This would be approximately 16 ft x 14 ft. We wanted a screen enclosure that looked nice, and was attached to the back of the house as well as one wall of the sunroom. We wanted to be able to walk out of the sunroom directly into the enclosure. What made this an interesting project is that the sunroom has a gable roof, the pitch of which is 90 degrees to the roof which extends down the back of the house. Suffice it to say that the roof angles is what made this an challenge. We had a few remodel contractors and enclosure companies come out to the house to take a look. They either came up with designs that didn't interest us or did not feel they wanted to attack the roof angle problem. We found Doug on a recommendation from a friend. We contacted him sometime in April 2012 and he came to the house to have a look. Doug recognized that the roof angles certainly made this an interesting project. However, as we described what we wanted, you could tell Doug's mind was working on the problem and he actually came up with a few very good ideas even as we talked. We felt very comfortable and decided to have Doug continue to work on some ideas and draw up some designs for us. We were not disappointed at the designs and ideas that Doug presented to us. We decided to hire Doug to do the project. As the scheduled start date was nearing, it was interesting communicating with Doug going over more and more ideas.

We decided to hire Doug to do the project. As the scheduled start date was nearing, it was interesting communicating with Doug going over more and more ideas. We realized quickly that Doug someone who loves the challenge of the project, loves to come up with ideas. We would find this outstanding characteristic throughout the project. Many times he would have ideas that would save money or for very little cost add functionality or a great look to the enclosure. Construction started in June, 2012. It was a two man crew, Doug and Jason. This would be an involved project. Due to another project that they had scheduled, they could work on our enclosure from June into the middle of July. They would then come back at the end of August to finish. As construction progressed, we found their professionalism to be outstanding. We were impressed daily, talking to them about progress, little ideas here and there, impressed with their work, and the progress of the project. We could see immediately that Doug was a perfectionist and loved the details of the project. Yet, he did not get mired in the details - the details were always connected to the overall goal of the project. But it was the little details that added so much, where to put the light switches, where to put the ceiling fan, how far down should the ceiling fan hang. From day one, we knew we were getting a solid, well made, professional, nice looking deck enclosure. In July construction ceased so that they could work on their other scheduled job. They left thing buttoned up nicely so that there would be no leaks from rain. They cleaned up everything and left the construction area in good shape for their return. They returned at the end of August to finish. We found their approach to be the same throughout the project, professional and detailed. They didn't come back just to slap the end of the project together. They came back to finish final construction and put their professional finishing touches on a fabulous deck enclosure that we absolutely love. Doug at D. W. Haw Construction is knowledgeable, professional, pleasant to work with. He has a keen sense of knowing just what you want, is soft spoken - definitely doesn't push his ideas, he is open minded to your ideas and he has a great sense of humor! Doug is patient, takes his time, thinks things through and makes sure to get it right. You don't feel like you are working with some huge corporate entity. When you hire Doug, you feel like you are working with a friend.
