Jersey Shore Custom-Built Decks

Outdoor Living That Enhances Your Seaside Lifestyle

The best place to enjoy the ocean view and refreshing sea breeze is from your custom deck, balcony or poolside patio. J. Lorton & Company constructs beautiful outdoor spaces that withstand the rigors of seaside living and add value and function to homes and businesses.

Building That’s Tailored for the Coast

Sun, salty air and seasonal storms degrade decks and building exteriors. To minimize maintenance and preserve property value, you need a carpenter specializing in coastal construction. J. Lorton & Company has almost 40 years’ experience building at the Jersey Shore. As certified Timber Tech Elite Contractors, our construction team recommends high-performance decking that is resistant to wind, weather and moisture.
