Chadvances installed laminate wood in my kitchen and hall way. He did a fabulous job! He was prompt on time and always professional. He gave me an estimate and a great one at that one day, and was ready to do the job a few days later. He picked my materials up and delivered them to my house, in which that helped me out tremendously!!! His services were heaven sent. I would recommend him to anyone that needs flooring etc. I will definitely be calling him for my next project. I give him a high 10!!!

As always a few things will come up that you want to add onto your home after you've settled on a price. I thought CWD Construction was very reasonable with the cost of the few things that we did add onwhich is nice. I mean, a builder could gouge you there if they wanted to but CWD Construction was very reasonable

Tips & Advices
The main benefit of a patio cover is that it allows people (and pets) to be outdoors in a variety of different weather conditions. Patios provide cover from rain and direct sunshine. Certain types of patio cover also protect from cold and wind.
The build time for a patio cover varies according to the scope of the project, but experts always advise that getting permits from the city and approval from the homeowners association usually takes longer than the build itself. The time it takes for materials to be sourced and shipped can also affect the project duration. Weather can also cause unforeseen delays. The quickest length of time a covered patio might take to build once design and permits are handled is one to two  days, if professionals are doing it. The actual build process could take a few weeks with unforeseen delays, and if your builder is working on other projects at the same time.
A patio cover costs $600-800 for the simplest vinyl awnings, with an average cost of $,1400 for vinyl or simple lattice.  Wood patio covers cost more, and Alumawood, as the most durable yet attractive of coverings, is the most expensive--anywhere from $8,000-$15,000 including professional installation.
Adding an attached covered patio generally requires a building permit because you are modifying the roofline of your home. Detached patio covers do not always require a permit. Open patios (i.e. those with no cover) also do not always require a permit.
Attached patio covers are built onto the house and change the roofline of the house, whereas a detached patio cover is part of a freestanding structure. Some cities have requirements on the minimum distance a detached covered patio needs to be from the main house.
