What is your vision of a perfect outdoor space? Is your goal to extend your living space outdoors or to create a separate oasis?
We handle everything from sky-high decks in new West Loop high-rises to the century-old Craftsman porches out in Lakeview/Edgewater. We also serve the North Shore, working alongside landscape artists to create custom deck buildouts. We provide the attention to detail, knowledge, and skill you need to get the result you want.
Wanting to complete home updates prior to move-in, prepping your property to be listed for sale, or getting ready for Chicago patio season – there are many reasons to renovate a deck. We can help define your project and carry out your vision.
Decks should complement your home. There is no right or wrong way — you have to look at the property to determine the footprint, traffic flow patterns, materials that blend with the existing structure, and so on.
We also work on other exterior architecture such as restoring “modernized” historic homes, creating a sunroom by enclosing an outdoor space, siding, fencing, and masonry.
We have a complete team of landscapers, designers, and builders. We can help you sort through all of the options and make all of the important considerations. We provide the perspective and experience you need to get the grilling, playing, lounging, and entertaining space you want.
Areté Renovators has worked in over 60% of Chicago’s downtown high rises. We know how to navigate association paperwork, partner with building management and engineers, maintain accountability, keep open lines of communication, and still finish the project on time, within budget, and exceed expectations.
With over 18 years in business, we have built and renovated decks that mesh seamlessly with extensive green roofs, swimming pools, challenging footprints, and existing utility structures.
Whether you’re updating a penthouse property or spearheading your organization’s outdoor amenity install, our high standards of quality, meticulous designs, local experience, and systematic project management are all at your disposal.
Decks tend to get weathered, especially in Chicago weather. The most life you’ll get out of any decking material is probably 30 years for high-quality composite. Add that to all of the storm damage, and the result is a rough climate for outdoor decks.
Our exterior scope ranges from design and installation of a handrail to installation of a new deck. We also work with standalone structures, such as above garage decks, pergolas, and sunrooms. If you do not see your project listed, please reach out to us and ask if we are the right fit for you. Ask around — we’ve probably completed projects for some of your neighbors in the Chicago area.
