A major benefit of living in Florida is the warm weather and seemingly endless sunshine. But without a deck or patio, it can be hard to enjoy the beautiful weather from the comfort of your own home. By having a deck or patio installed — and custom-designed to your specifications — you, your family, and your guests will be able to relax in the outdoors, enjoy BBQs, and create family memories.

Choose Vanguard North for your outdoor living needs, from patio design and building to a full deck installation. Call us at 850-659-7068 to learn more!


Think of your backyard as a canvas. There are a variety of ways you can embellish it to your specifications. Whether you’re interested in installing a patio or deck for your home, our team at Vanguard North provides you with a multitude of options to create your own one-of-a-kind outdoor living space.

When you hire Vanguard North to design and install a deck or patio, you can rest easy knowing a professional home building contractor is on the job. We take the following factors into consideration when planning your outdoor living space:

  • Placement – We recommend that your new deck is placed off a high-traffic area like your living room or kitchen.
  • Sun Exposure – You need to decide what the purpose of your new patio will be. Is it going to be used for sun bathing? Would you prefer to relax outdoors in the shade? We’ll install the patio wherever it best suits your needs.
  • Privacy – Our team will study your property to see which areas provide the most privacy. If needed, we can make additions to your deck or patio, such as decorative railings, sun shades, or custom stairs down into the backyard.

Our contractors have more than 35 years of experience designing and installing patios and decks throughout the Tallahassee area. You can depend on us to create a custom-designed outdoor living space that exceeds all your expectations. Contact us for a consultation!


For those looking to upgrade the exterior of their home, there are a number of ways to make it more functional year-round. Adding a beautiful outdoor deck is one of the most popular types of exterior home additions, working to provide a great place for hosting events with friends and spending family time outside.

  • Extra Space – Ever throw a gathering at your house that was slightly too cramped? With a custom-built outdoor patio, there is more room for your guests to mingle. An outdoor patio essentially gives you another room during the long summer months, which makes a great home addition investment.
  • Home Value – Outdoor living spaces are a sought-after feature for many home buyers. Having an outdoor family-oriented area makes it easy for potential home buyers to visualize their own family in the space.
  • Aesthetic Appeal – Having a deck builder install a patio or deck adds a new element of design to any home, making it more visually appealing while enhancing the home’s overall quality. Custom decks and patios can easily add dimension to any yard for an attractive property that stands out from the rest.
  • Entertainment Area – A deck or patio provides the perfect area to host a family dinner, a neighborhood gathering, or a barbecue! When the weather is nice, a deck gives you the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine in a living room type of setting.
