Cutting corners on discretionary spending and trying to save money whenever possible – especially if retirement is in your near future – is a frequent fact of life.
But you will surely agree that the adage is often so very true, especially in home improvements – “You get what you pay for.”
INTEGRITY, EXPERIENCE, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND LONG TERM VALUE – THE EXPENSE IS WORTH IT
When you build your long awaited outdoor living space, compromise is not an option.
Let’s face it. It will most likely be a once-in-a-lifetime investment for your future relaxation and extended living space.
Unlike other builders, Archadeck structures come with more value than just the sticker price for what your project costs.
As a custom design and build firm, we realize it is possible to find someone else to build your project cheaper. But the keyword here is cheaper, and if your goal is simply to find the lowest bid without taking the value of your project into account, then we will be the first to say we are likely not the right fit for you.
However, if you realize the importance of investing in a high quality outdoor living space, we are likely the company for your project. If you value construction standards, experience, quality materials, workmanship, and service after the sale, then Archadeck will become your first choice. Our process is proof of that.
WHY PAY MORE FOR AN ARCHADECK PROJECT?
There are many factors that contribute to the Archadeck cost structure. These include insurance, warranties, affiliation with a national company that provides technical expertise, and a professional and seasoned design consultant and contractor who can answer your questions and guide you through design decisions and material choices.
In addition, our entire staff is knowledgeable and our tradesmen are among the best in the industry in executing custom designs – and this level of skill doesn’t come cheap.
WHY IS INSURANCE IMPORTANT?
Having adequate insurance is a serious consideration. When our workers are onsite, they are covered by liability insurance. This means that damages such as fire or water that could be incurred as a result of the work being performed at your home would be covered by Archadeck of Nashville’s general liability insurance. If your builder isn’t covered, then this will come out of your pocket.
HOW MUCH DOES AN ARCHADECK OF NASHVILLE PROJECT COST?
In addition to liability insurance, Workers Compensation insurance is just as important, if not more. For example, if you hire the proverbial “two guys in a truck” to build your deck or screened porch for a cheaper price and one of them gets injured while on your property – who is responsible?
If they have Workers Compensation insurance, then the insurance company is responsible for costs associated with the injury according to the law.
However, if there is no insurance, the injured party can sue his/her boss, as well as the homeowner to recover damages from the injury.
You can rest assured our tradesmen are covered with both general liability and workers compensation insurance on every job we set foot on.
DESIGN & WARRANTIES THAT ARE PRICELESS
Because we’re part of a larger franchise system, we have access to technical expertise that includes engineering and architectural drafting.
A small, independent contractor doesn’t have those critical resources.
Additionally, our in-house design consultants are trained on structural design, material choices, best pricing options, as well as best use of space.
They also offer advice on what not to do based on problems we have run across in the past. The depth of the advice we will provide almost always results in a better project overall than you would come up with on your own.
WHY AN ARCHADECK OF NASHVILLE PROJECT IS WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD
No other builder in the area offers the warranties we do. We stand behind our work, and if you have a problem with something we build, you know where to find us. Archadeck provides 3 kinds of warranties on all of our projects:
1. An “edge-to-edge” warranty covering all materials and labor for a period of one year.
2. A structural warranty covering structural issues for 5 years.
3. A builder’s warranty from a 3rd party assuring you that if we become unable to build your project, another Archadeck office will step in and complete your project.
These are not to mention our extended labor warranties as part of our Archadeck and TimberTech partnership. Our labor warranties will also match TimberTech’s lengthy product warranties.
OUR FIRM COMPLETION GUARANTEE MEANS YOU WON’T BE LEFT HIGH AND DRY
No other outdoor living space contractor in the area offers a firm completion guarantee except Archadeck of Nashville.
What does a completion guarantee mean?
It means when you sign a contract with Archadeck of Nashville, your project is automatically covered by a completion guarantee. God forbid if anything were to happen to Archadeck of Nashville, the National Guarantee Corporation would step in to make sure the job was completed by another Archadeck builder. Not just completed, but completed to the agreed-upon specifications of your contract.
