Building a Mountain Deck and Incorporating Existing Aspens

Deck showcasing water feature

Deck showcasing water feature

We at Mile High Window, Solar & Landscape, recently completed this deck in Coal Creek Canyon – located in the foothills northwest of Denver.

Working with environment created an amazing outdoor living space.

We were able to build the deck around the trees to preserve the aspens and incorporate them into the design of the deck – bringing in the natural environment – creating a peaceful space. Almost like sitting in the woods – not separated from it.
The client also wanted to showcase the water feature, so we used a curved line to accentuate it.

Here are some more photos showing the deck and the trees in the design…deck_2

We are now Certified in Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair, and Painting

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children.

To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning in April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

EPA’s lead renovation, repair and painting (RRP) program rule requires contractors to be certified in lead-safe work practices and training providers to be accredited by EPA. Mile High WSL is pleased to announce that we have completed the coursework and we have the required certification to safely and legally remove the lead necessary to replace windows in your home. The new EPA rules take effect in April 2010, don’t be caught off-guard by a contractor who isn’t prepared. Your city will likely require a separate permit for the removal of the lead, and contractors must be certified to perform this work.

We offer FREE lead tests with a signed contract to anyone living in a house built before 1978. If you have lead in your home, we are a certified lead-removal contractor in the Denver, Colorado Metro Area.

Changing a window into french doors in Denver, Colorado

This historic home in the Baker Neighborhood of Denver, Colorado underwent a major renovation in 2007. The homeowners hired Mile High Window, Solar and Landscape Inc. for several parts of this project, including replacing some doors and windows, building a new front porch/deck, building a privacy fence in the rear of the property, building an historically accurate boundary fence in the front yard, installing an irrigation system and landscaping and much more. This blog entry will highlight one particular project, which was to replace a second story window with Pella French doors, which lead out to the new deck off the master bedroom (which we built with composite GeoDeck). First the window was removed and an expert mason was hired to remove bricks and reconfigure the opening for the new doors. Then, we framed around the opening in preparation for the new door installation. Finally we installed the doors and final exterior trim.
