Getting started with a new outdoor living project — now — could be your antidote to the uncertainty swirling around these days. It’s something positive you can control simply by making a phone call to set up a design consultation with Archadeck of Fort Wayne. If you’re like many homeowners, spending more time at home now, you may be increasingly aware that you need more outdoor living space. This is the best time to follow through and put your ideas for a new or improved backyard retreat into action!
The first day of Summer 2020 is Saturday, June 20. No matter what’s going on with the economy, etc., spring and summer will proceed as quickly they do every year. You know how “time flies”! Why not make the most of this time to create the new deck, screened porch, or patio you’ve been thinking about?
In our business of designing and building outdoor living structures, we anticipate we’ll see a bigger-than-usual surge of homeowners wanting get started sometime this summer. There’s definitely pent up demand out there as homeowners are postponing their deck, patio, and screened porch projects. Without the proverbial crystal ball, we can’t predict exactly when the floodgates will open. What we do know is that we cannot build everyone’s projects at once!
Those homeowners who contact us sooner are the ones who’ll have a greater likelihood of completing their project this year. The sooner we connect and talk about designing the backyard space you have in mind, the sooner we can add your project to our construction calendar. As you’re probably aware, we need time to create and finalize your project design and order materials. Depending on your project, we may need to obtain permits and HOA approval. Each step in the process takes time. Moving ahead now brings you that much closer to the goal: enjoying your new backyard retreat, one that’s custom built to your specifications.
At some point, we’re going to see a backlog of projects as our calendar fills up. While most reputable contractors have a backlog during the busy seasons, we feel the situation will be more extreme this year. We’re giving you a gentle nudge now because we don’t want your deck, your patio, or your screened porch project to be delayed. Clients who don’t act soon may find themselves waiting until 2021 to see their projects completed.
If you’ve had to cancel a vacation this spring or summer, can you use your time at home to recharge? Sure you can! Think of how much you’ll enjoy having a “staycation-worthy” outdoor living space in your back yard. We can design and build the perfect private retreat at your home. Don’t be surprised if you decide to vacation at home again next year, as well!
Have you been thinking about adding deck, a screened porch, a patio, or 3-season room? Do you have Pinterest boards full of ideas?
