When you choose Archadeck of Akron to design and build your deck, patio, porch or other outdoor living space you get much more than just the structure. What do we mean by this statement, you may ask? The answer to this question is as simple as it is complex. Where other builders may be quicker to the draw in coming up with a quote, or have the ability to start your project on a dime, you have to ask yourself why?
Do You Know Who’s Building Your Project? With Archadeck, You Do!
If you’ve started to round up quotes or estimates for an outdoor living project at your home, how do you know who to trust? Have you asked friends and colleagues for referrals? Have you seen builders recommended online—but recommended by people you don’t actually know? Have you read their reviews?,,, Have you perused their completed project portfolio? Have you done enough due diligence?
Just like any other service professional, the ones who are really good at what they do have a backlog. Any builder that claims they have no backlog should immediately send a red flag. A quality, well designed and built structure takes time – time to craft a design, time to communicate with the client, and time to secure permitting and materials.
Hiring a deck, patio or porch contractor is no small task, especially if you prefer to “go it alone.” That might mean meeting with builders you find online, vetting them and comparing their quotes or estimates. One issue with this approach is you don’t necessarily know what kind of experience you’re going to have once you hire someone.

Every deck, porch, patio or other custom outdoor structure we build is backed by Archadeck’s written warranty for one year workmanship and for five years of structural integrity. When you choose us to be your contractor, first, we include a one-year workmanship warranty with every project. This will cover defects including severe warping, leaking or shifting. Then, we also provide a five-year structural integrity warranty covering the fitness of the construction components and the integrity of your new outdoor living space.
These warranties are further backed by the National Guarantee Corporation, which guarantees that your residential outdoor living project will be completed to the terms of your contract and built to the agreed upon specifications and with a warranty of performance for up to two years.
And there’s more! Depending on the building materials you select, manufacturers’ warranties may apply to protect you against defects in materials. And Archadeck’s intensive training and, in many cases, certification as an official installer help reinforce your confidence that those manufacturers’ warranties won’t be adversely affected by installation issues.
Without a doubt, no other company in the remodeling and outdoor living space industry provides this level of client assurance and protection Archadeck does.
