At Sierra Structures, we’ve built quite a reputation for quality residential fences and gates over the years. But we are also experts at other structures that can turn any backyard into valuable living space. 

Here’s a look at what we do beyond fences:

  • Decks: Most people don’t think of this, but decks are important. After all, a deck is often the first place one steps on when going into the backyard. It can either be an extension of a home or just a utilitarian means to get outside. A well-built deck can add functional space to a home. They can be especially useful in providing usable areas in hilly or sloped backyards by providing a level surface for living. 
  • Covered porches: Covered porches are for those of us who want to take the whole ‘extension of our living space’ thing seriously. These are truly added living areas to a home that can be used almost all year long. These can be customized with lighting, skylights, fans, seating or swings. With a covered porch, you have the best of both worlds: a comfortable living space and fresh outdoor air. 
  • Arbors and pergolas: The key to a homey outdoor living area is to create cozy spots, and nothing gets that job done like an arbor or pergola. These structures help define spaces while adding height and character to a yard. 
  • Extra touches: Once the main structures are in place, it’s time to add those special touches such as built in benches, planters, tables and bars. This is where we love to work with our clients to let our imagination loose and come up with those customized, unique features that transform a backyard.
