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.
Description of Work
My wife and I hired Doug (D. W. Haw Construction) to build a screened in, deck enclosure. Our house has a sunroom that extends out of the center of the back of the house. The sunroom kind of divides the back of the house in half. We have a deck attached to the house, the deck spans the back of the house, wrapping around the sunroom. The deck enclosure that we asked D. W. Haw to build encloses only one of the large areas of the deck, thus attaching to back and one side of the sunroom. The challenge of this project is the fact that the sunroom has a gable roof that is 90 degrees to the roof that extends down to the back of the house. In other words, multiple roof angles had to be considered. We recognized that to get the desired result, this would be a big project. The enclosure was designed and built to be more of an addition to the house, not just a simple screen enclosure that attaches to the house. As such, this new 'room' has a gable roof which runs perpendicular to the back of the house, the peak of which centers just about in the center of the deck area under which it encloses. One side of the roof of the enclosure extends down to the peak of the sunroom roof. The the other side extends down to heavy posts outside of the deck. These three posts are mounted on heavy cement pillars in the ground. The peak of the gable roof of this enclosure is attached to and extends out from the roof of the house that runs down from the peak of the house in the back. Difficult as it is to explain, clearly this enclosure involved a great deal of working with the existing structure of the house and roof. Immediately from above, it is clear that the one slope of the roof of the enclosure is tied into the peak of the sunroom and extends up to the peak of the enclosure. And the entire enclosure roof structure is tied into the main roof of the house. The wrap around screen is heavy and installed to last. We also wanted to have screen under the existing deck flooring. To accomplish this would require removal of the deck flooring. Due to wear and age, we elected to replace the flooring with synthetic. This helped a great deal and makes the enclosure that much nicer. The inside of the enclosure has a nice vaulted ceiling with decorative tongue and groove finish wood. A ceiling fan is in the room. Doug had great ideas on lighting and light switches. There are ceiling lights with multiple switches and dimmers, outlets in convenient locations. Doug will tell you that he likes maintenance free as much as possible. So rather than using wood to highlight the deck posts and screen frames, at Doug's suggestions we had him install decorative Azek trim. It looks beautiful and we don't have to be concerned with pealing and painting. We love the new addition to the house. It is beautiful, well made, smartly designed and constructed.

The end results are amazing! I use this room as a main entrance to my home and it is now a room I am proud to have people see! D.W. Haw Construction performed all work on time and within my budget. They kept me informed of progress and any issues that arose where decisions needed to be made. They kept the jobsite clean & organized. They are extremely professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. They tore down & hauled away my old fence and any debris from the breezeway without extra charge. I would hire D.W. Haw Construction for any of my future home remodeling projects.
Description of Work
D.W. Haw Construction designed, built and stained a beautiful, one of a kind, 6' tall privacy fence that spanned my entire back yard (~200'). They also renovated a breezeway between my garage and home that was water damaged and severely weathered and brought the room back to its original beauty (and more!). My home was built in 1945 and the breezeway was added on years later but was built keeping with the style of the home. All casement windows and the main entrance door were custom built for the room. The windows and doors were water damaged. The many years of paint on the walls, windows and door began to peel and chip. And the window glaze was deteriorated and the glass was cracked in a number of windows. The ceiling, a tongue and groove pine, was severely water damaged. And the terra cotta floor was faded and dingy. D.W Haw Construction masterfully repaired/replaced one of the walls that had to be torn out due to the amount of water damage. They stripped years of paint from the casement windows, replaced any damaged glass, and expertly re-glazed and painted. They built new custom screens for all windows and built a new custom door. The ceiling, the new focal point of the room, is a naturally stained gummy cherry with black walnut splines between the cherry boards to add depth & character. It is truly a masterpiece of wood working! All custom woodwork was designed, built & installed by Douglas Haw. He also stained & sealed the terra cotta floor to complete the room. It was a very labor intensive project due to the custom work throughout the room. D.W. Haw Construction maintained the style of the room while also adding new elements of custom wood work and color.
