Don't Wait To Call If You're Thinking About Adding A New Deck, Porch Or Patio This Spring

Is this the year you’re going to build that deck you’ve dreamed about? Are you finally tired of an old paver patio with uneven bricks or cracked concrete? If 2018 is the year to add the outdoor space you’ve dreamed of, don’t wait to call Archadeck to discuss your project. If you wait, your new project may be completed much later than you had hoped.

How long does it take to build a new deck, porch or patio?

We are asked this question all the time. While actually building your new outdoor space may not take long, the process does take time. For example, all reputable builders have a waiting list for start dates. In fact, if you contact a builder that can start tomorrow or next week, be very wary. Good contractors are in demand and they have a waiting list to get started.

What else determines how long it will take for your new project to be completed?

In addition to the wait time that you can expect with reputable builders, there are a number of steps in the design process. While each of these might not take a lot of time, cumulatively they can add upto several weeks.

The decision process

When you give us a ring, we schedule a time to visit your home as shortly after your call as possible. A few days elapse before we even meet. When you make your decision to move ahead, it may take a couple days to finalize your contract. After your contract is finalized, Archadeck of Charlotte pulls your permits and schedules the appropriate subcontractors such as electricians, painters or roofers.

The finishing process

Even the finishing process requires a little bit of time. Archadeck ensures that every job is properly inspected by the local inspectors. As you can see from the list above, the required steps in adding a custom-built structure or space to your backyard take time.
