Are you planning to add a deck, porch or patio to your home this year? Which will be more important to you: locking in the price for your outdoor living project, or ensuring you get your project built in 2021?
The good news is that you don’t have to choose between these two options. You can accomplish both with a call to Archadeck of Akron, if you call soon. ASAP, as they say.
Now is the time to lock in pricing on your anticipated project to ensure a 2021 build.
We’re not trying to create a false sense of urgency. Both of these options truly are time sensitive. The longer you wait, the higher lumber prices may rise, while other building material prices are rising, too. At the same time, the longer you wait, the fewer openings we’ll have on our construction calendar for 2021. As the premier outdoor living design-and-build firm in the Akron area, our services are always in demand and we are scheduled into the fall already.
How to Lock in the Price of Your New Porch, Deck or Patio with Archadeck of Akron
Unless you’ve been on a no-news retreat, you are probably aware that lumber prices are continuing to rise. Some other materials are now following that trend as well. We can’t stop rising prices for everyone, but we can stop them for you. Yes, we can, and we will! Keep reading …
When you work with Archadeck of Akron on your new project design and sign a contract with us, we lock in your costs at signing. If material prices rise between the day you sign your contract and the day we start construction, you won’t pay the difference. We will.
How is that possible? Actually, this is the way we have always operated. When we price a job for you, we give you that figure in the form of a firm quote, not an estimate. Unlike companies that give an estimate – which then becomes a moving target as the job progresses – we stand by our quote. Unless you request changes that increase your project cost, your original quote is your final cost.
What’s the difference between a quote and an estimate? We explain it here: The Archadeck Difference – Our Quote is Not an “Estimate".
How The Archadeck Difference Locks in More than Just Your Price
Our firm quote is not the only reason to work with Archadeck of Akron on your next outdoor living project. We bring the same professionalism and attention to detail to every project we design and build. When you sign our contract, you lock in quality. From a single deck or porch project to a multi-faceted outdoor living space combination, we maintain high construction standards. We also maintain the appropriate liability and workers comp insurance at all times. In addition, you can count on Archadeck’s warranties and completion guarantee. That’s why we say, With Archadeck of Akron You Get Much More Than Just An Outdoor Living Space Builder!
Don’t you think all residential construction projects should come with warranties and a completion guarantee? We do! Yet, this is exceedingly rare in the outdoor living construction and remodeling industry. We offer two warranties with every project to give you peace of mind. We provide a 1-year warranty on workmanship covering defects like splitting, severe warping or cupping of building materials, leaking roofs or shifting patio pavers. We also provide a 5-year structural warranty covering structural components such as footings, joists and paver patio base. In addition, we provide a completion guarantee in our contract. If something were to happen to Archadeck of Akron, you would not be left with an unfinished project. Another Archadeck location would complete your project according to your contract specifications.

How to Ensure Your Outdoor Living Construction Project is Completed in 2021
Surprised to learn a 2021 completion date is even in question? That’s understandable since it’s only June, but our construction calendar is booked out pretty far. We don’t say this to discourage you. Our objective is to get your attention so you don’t miss out if you want Archadeck of Akron to build your project this year.
Homeowners are sometimes surprised to learn about all of the arrangements we must make before we can start building your project. First, we need to design that perfect deck or screened porch you have in mind. We design it in collaboration with you, because your preferences and your budget will determine the materials we need to order. Sometimes the design takes a few iterations, and that can depend on how clear you are on what you want us to build. Only when we are in full agreement on the design details can we give you a quote and a contract. Once you sign your contract, we can add your project to our construction schedule. Do you already see the pages flying off of the calendar in your mind’s eye? That’s why we encourage you to give us a call so we can get started!
Is your next outdoor living project going to be a simple deck, a new patio or a SCREENEZE® three-season room? We would love to design and build it for you. Don’t wait! Contact Archadeck of Akron today to schedule a design consultation for your new outdoor living space.
