Steve Wilkins wanted to create a backyard oasis for him and his family to enjoy. The old wood patio cover was falling apart, but we were able to save the structure; repair the posts, change the ceiling, and re-roof. Our sunroom wall system with windows/doors was added between the hardie-sided posts along with an Amana Ptac heat/ a/c unit, ceiling fans and electrical outlets. We built a beautiful new deck and added stamped concrete around the outside of the room. The room is fabulous and the Wilkins family is able to enjoy their new space year round!
“First of all, let me say that I spent many years in construction management, and interviewed several contractors before making my selection as to who would be my contractor. I contracted with McBride Construction to perform some home improvements for me, i.e., turning my back porch into a room, and the addition of a sidewalk, that would surround the room, and lead out to my storage building. They did an excellent job, overall, in turning my back porch into a room, using an excellent wall system, which I’d never seen before, but was quite amazed by it. The wall sections were measured exactly to conform to this particular application. I have to say, also, that the double-paned windows and doors were of the highest quality.
The concrete work was of a patterned design. It was made to look like field stones, and we, as well as everyone who has seen it, just loves the way it looks. Also, getting back to the room, I also have to add that the insulation, as well as the windows, which are double-paned, have kept the room very comfortable, utilizing mostly only the heat that comes from the house. They installed a very nice heating/cooling unit, also, but we haven’t had to use it very much. When we do, it comes on, cools or heats, and turns itself off. It cycles very well, thanks to the insulating qualities of the walls. I should add, too, that they had to completely tear off, and re-roof the section over the new room, as well as add overhead insulation. They also ran all new electrical wiring to take care of the lighting, outlets, and the heating/cooling unit.
The work was, as I said, done beautifully and professionally, and all of the workmen were as courteous as they could be. Also, each time I had a question, Mr. McBride was available to answer them. He stayed in close touch throughout the duration of the job, and I would not hesitate to recommend him, and his company, to do any type of construction. My wife and I are very, very pleased!” -Steve W. in Tomball
