New Deck Build 

Members of the Merina+Co team recently helped out a local Tigard family, reflecting our firm’s commitment to the community.  The family has a special needs child and their deck provides outside access for the child.  When that deck collapsed due to weather and age, our team members stepped in to design and build them a new one.  Over the course of a little more than a week, they demolished the old deck, framed and built a new, stronger, and safer deck for the family, and hauled off the debris.  A donation from The Home Depot helped offset the cost of the project that was otherwise funded out of our team members’ pockets.

Merina+Co remains committed to our communities and our team demonstrates this commitment throughout the year participating in specific projects, serving on boards and commissions, and through personal involvement at any number of levels.  It is a core value and simply part of who we are as a firm.
