The exterior of your home is seen by friends, family and all passersby, making it a personal statement in your neighborhood.The natural elements can take their toll on your home and its surroundings, making it important to take care of the outside of your home to protect the inside. You may only need small repairs to siding, trim, roofing, windows and/or doors, or it may be time for a complete home make-over including roofing and a new paint job.
We can also change the look and character with the addition of natural wood and timber or by closing in a carport. Whatever your exterior needs are we are ready to leave you with a fresh, new, inviting look to come home to.
When you entrust Rafter 4K Contracting with the construction management of your home you are not only getting a team who wants to improve where you live, but take care of it too. From the beginning we take your personal situation into account; not only determining the time, cost, and materials necessary, but the people needed to take care of it as well. Our employees are experienced tradesmen in a variety of areas, but if your project requires the expertise of someone outside our staff we have reliable sub-trades that have worked with us in the past and uphold the same standards we do. At the end of every day we secure your home; making it a clean and safe environment to live in while your project is underway. Your comfort during construction is as important to us as your comfort after, and our construction management experience will give you the peace of mind to relax.
Installing new energy efficient units will save you money in the long run, while providing you with an attractive and comfortable home. Finding the right style of window and door for your personal needs is important to us, and we will help you find the most energy efficient option within your budget.
Our team is competent in the installation of a wide variety of windows and doors and will replace a single door or window, or upgrade your entire home for you. We are also able to create and install them in a new location to brighten a room or provide new access.
New products such as fiber/cement siding can provide you with an aesthetically pleasing look and longevity. We also install new wood exteriors and we can repair existing siding, including log home refinishing.
The paint and stain on your house is an important component in the feeling of your home. Simply applying a fresh coat of paint to the outside of your home adds years of life, along with an increased value by refreshing your home’s appearance.
Staining offers another aesthetically pleasing option for the wood areas of your home, all while maintaining the natural look and penetrating the natural fibres to last a long time. We will accomplish these projects with as little disruption to your daily routine as possible.

A Deck is an extension of your home, a living space for relaxation and entertaining. In Kelowna having an outdoor deck is essential; what a better way to enjoy our beautiful surroundings than from the comfort of your deck. Our team is experienced deck and rail builders and know how to create the perfect deck for your individual home and lifestyle.
Outdoor decking can be added to most homes to give you a clean comfortable outdoor environment; what you do with your deck from there is almost limitless. Decks can be covered for extra protection from the elements, completely enclosed, or have partial shade incorporated such as an awning. There are many material options, from natural wood to composite decking, which our deck builders can discuss with you to determine the best fit. You have various railing choices to either create privacy or enhance the view from your deck. Some of the features you can include on your deck are heaters, a gate to keep pets out and kids in, or bar space built into the railing for extra eating room; features incorporated to enhance your outdoor deck experience.
The choices are yours to create an outside living space with your personal character. Another area our deck builders are experienced in is deck repairs. All things wear down over time, and if your deck is looking a little tired we have the ability to bring it new life however you desire. Basic safety is our first concern with an older deck, but once that has been assessed the outdoor decking can be repaired, refinished, or altered completely to suit your current needs.
Patios are a beautiful addition to any outdoor living space that can be incorporated nearly anywhere due to their versatile options. Everything from elevated wood structures to concrete patios or other unique materials are possible. Fitting a patio into your outdoor living area is not a problem as they can be any shape and size while keeping your comfort and privacy in mind.
Personalizing your patio is also possible; consider one of the many accessories that we have the ability to incorporate into your design; outdoor kitchens, barbeques, fire pits, and entertainment systems.
Whether it’s that Kelowna summer sun that keeps you from enjoying the outdoors, or you want a private area to relax, a gazebo is the perfect solution. Acting as both a visual and sound privacy barrier, gazebos offer you a comfortable way to enjoy your outdoor living space, even in more crowded residential areas. Gazebos provide you with a shaded area in the summer perfect for either entertaining or simply escaping the heat. The many options available regarding size, shape, and building material allows you to design a gazebo that matches your individual needs.
Pergolas can add aesthetics and shade to decks, walkways, and gardens. They can be built for privacy purposes, or with more of an open design to increase visual appeal. There is so much variety of design, purpose and layout for these types of projects that we find it is best to work closely with you and create a plan to satisfies your personal desires.
