A Few Words About Us

Bill Karras, President/Owner of Patio Enclosures of Raleigh began his career with Patio Enclosures as an installer for the corporate headquarters in Macedonia, Ohio in the winter of 1972.

Four years later Bill, with his wife Nancy, moved to Cincinnati to assume the role of sales representatives at one of the first local franchises. Bill continued his successful career in this area for 12 years, establishing himself a successful, customer oriented member of the Patio Enclosures family.

In 1988 Bill and Nancy moved their family to Raleigh, NC and became the proud owners of the first Patio Enclosures franchise in the Carolinas. Since then this franchise (Carolina Enclosures, Inc. dba Patio Enclosures of Raleigh) has grown to service a wide area and is recognized as one of the most respected businesses in the area.

In addition to offering America's Top Performing sunrooms PEI of Raleigh decided to expand its product line by offering replacement windows, awnings, siding, blinds, shades and furniture. PEI of Raleigh is a turn key operation for any and all remodeling needs. Since we are a general contractor no job is too big or too small. We'll take care of everything. From HOA submittal, engineering, permits to flooring, heating and air and furniture we have got you covered. Since Patio Enclosures of Raleigh is a family business we treat every customer as family and every home like our own.

From Our Valued Customer, Dante Landucci

"We obtained 3 quotes. In this economy, it was challenging to find that many well recommended service providers. Patio Enclosures won our business even though they were not the lowest bid."

"I know enough of the building Code to be aware when contractors are going by old habits. We have faith in the critical parts of the Code, that they actually have good reasons for being there. The guys at Patio Enclosures were far more up-to-date than their competitors. We also favored that much of the construction, the key parts, were prefabricated from well proven materials. The plans were well considered; we had wanted a particular roof design that only Patio Enclosures picked up was a less than optimal idea. They helped us revise our plans improving on the structural soundness, the esthetics, and lowering our cost. They laid out the timeline. After we signed the contract, things pretty much progressed as planned. We've had problems with contractors and subs when attempting the same project at our former residence. From the start, these guys were on time and, barring a lot of rain, on schedule. Their default mode was to build above our expectations, not just barely to them. There were change orders, just a few. We knew about them in advance, were able to anticipate the impact on the project and the budget. Each one was a slight improvement in some functional aspect of the room. We've had a few months to enjoy it. I've gone over the construction from top to bottom, both during the building and since and there's nothing I would have them do differently. These guys are not the cheapest. They also were not the most expensive. From our perspective, they're the ones who promised and delivered the best return on the dollar. Should we consider more work like this, they can count on having our business again."
