‘Tis the season when our thoughts turn to spending time with loved ones and setting goals for the new year ahead. Your aspirations may be unique and personal or they may include changes that will affect the entire family. They may include making lifestyle changes, setting work goals and even home remodeling and improvements.
If you imagine a new or improved outdoor living space in your future, now is the time to plan your course of action. This is especially important if you envision your family enjoying your outdoor space during the 2021 outdoor living season ahead.
Why the Rush?
As is the case with any remodeling or home improvement project, a good contractor’s schedule fills quickly. The most desirable builder will be the one customers flock to first. To ensure your project is built with the quality and workmanship you have in mind, it is best to finalize your design sooner than later. At Archadeck of Central SC, our winter calendar is filling quickly. It is important that you move ahead now to ensure your deck, porch, sunroom or other space is completed in time to enjoy this spring.
The first benefit of acting now is having your structure(s) completed in time to enjoy during the warmer season ahead. There are several other benefits to getting your project finalized before this year ends. These include:
* Avoiding any new-year price increases on materials, which are typical during the first quarter
* Ample time for any wooden outdoor structures to properly cure
* Less of an interruption of your lifestyle as you are less likely to be outdoors during the colder months
* Less damage to turf during the winter dormancy period
* More time to plan for outdoor furnishings and décor

Experience the Archadeck Difference
As part of North America’s largest deck and porch builder, Archadeck locations nationwide have built more than 100,000 outdoor living structures since opening the doors in 1980. If that is not impressive enough, your local Archadeck builder, Archadeck of Central SC, has a network of experts that have our back. These include the engineers with whom we consult when necessary and the draftsmen who produce our architectural drawings and 3-D renderings. We are licensed, insured and trained in all applicable areas of the trade. Each Archadeck location maintains a minimum of $1 million in liability coverage and full workers compensation insurance (where required by law) to protect you from any possible mishaps.
We have also built and nurtured relationships with preferred material vendors to ensure your project is built with the best materials and the most value.
Do Your Research and You Will See Archadeck is the Wise Choice
Hiring an outdoor living space contractor is no small task, especially if you are doing all the research on your own. This might mean meeting with builders you find online, vetting them and comparing quotes or estimates. One issue with “going it alone” is you don’t necessarily know what kind of experience you’re going to have once you hire someone. At Archadeck of Central SC, our record of many satisfied customers speaks for itself.
When you contract with Archadeck to design and build yournew outdoor living space, you get much more than just the new structure. What do we mean by this statement? The answer to this question is as simple as it is complex. Where other builders may be quicker in coming up with a quote, or can start your project right away, you have to ask yourself why.
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 complete strangers? Have you read their online reviews? Have you perused their completed project portfolio? Have you done enough due diligence?

Moving ahead before year-end with your anticipated project can bring many benefits. Chances are likely if you wait until warmer weather arrives, you may face longer wait times and the regret of wishing you had contacted us sooner.
Keep in mind, too, that Archadeck of Central SC can build your outdoor structure combination in stages. Fall/winter is the perfect time to start the first stage of your desired outdoor living project. If you are considering a porch and deck combination, for example, you can take advantage of our staged building option and build the porch this winter. Then we can add the deck later into the spring. With our staged building program, the choice is yours. Contact us to learn more. Don’t delay, schedule your design consultation today!
