The Value of Choosing Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake to Design and Build Your Outdoor Living Project
Beautiful workmanship, high standards, attention to detail—all of these elements, and more, are part of the bargain when you trust your outdoor living project to Archadeck. To some, the word value means low prices, bottom dollar, and never mind the quality. To Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake, value means giving our clients the “extras” that come with a high level of expertise and service.
Why Choosing the Lowest Bidder Can Be Costly
Are you thinking about adding a patio, porch or deck to your northeast Dallas home? Do visions of an outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace dance through your dreams? If you’re tempted to choose a builder based on the lowest estimate, pause for a moment. Pay close attention to the caution lights flashing danger ahead. There’s a reason why the saying “you get what you pay for” is a well-worn phrase, because there is a lot of truth in it!
We have spoken with homeowners who went with the lowest bidder and later wished they had been more selective. If a contractor intentionally underbids another just to get your business, they do not plan to lose money on your project. To keep from losing money, they are going to have to cut corners somewhere. Will they hire unqualified subcontractors, use low-quality materials or rush the job? Will they expect you to apply for your own building permits?
Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake won’t cut corners on your outdoor living project. Our crews and subcontractors have experience and expertise—and note that those are not always the same things. We use high-quality materials because the covered patio and outdoor kitchen you hire us to design and build is going to last a long, long time. We work hard to make sure your experience of working with us is a good one. We want you to be over-the-top thrilled with the work we do at your home.
Value: What Archadeck Includes that Most Builders Don’t
With Archadeck, you get an ultra-professional design and build experience with your outdoor living project. We say “design and build” because our focus on quality design sets us apart from most Dallas-area deck builders, porch contractors and patio installers. You’ll be a collaborator in the design process with Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake. You’ll develop a deep appreciation for the way we listen and actually hear you describe the screened porch you’ve been wanting.
— We are proud to be locally owned and operated.
Whether your project is a simple deck and pergola or a pavilion with full outdoor kitchen and fireplace, we bring our “A game” to its design. To us, your project’s design is as important as its construction. The same is true on large or small-scale projects so please don’t assume a smaller project will get less of our attention. We focus on design details with every project because that is how we produce consistently high-quality outdoor living structures. It’s one of the ways we deliver additional value with your new outdoor living space.
Attention to detail is a big part of the Archadeck process. We use checklists. We circle back. We follow up. We don’t leave anything to chance. We keep you updated about the progress of your project. We place great value on communication and customer service.
Warranties— have any other contractors you’ve interviewed mentioned warranties? —are another way we bring additional value to every Archadeck project. You aren’t going to get this level of service and value from another outdoor living contractor. Our projects come with a warranty on workmanship, and another warranty on structural integrity. We also take care to follow all manufacturer’s installation procedures for materials so you’re covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for materials. Finally, we provide a 3rd-party completion guarantee. In the event that we are unable to complete your project for any reason, another Archadeck location would come in and complete it. Of course we hope that’s never needed! But compare that to your lowest bidder. If something goes wrong and they disappear, what’s your recourse?
Choosing Your Dallas Patio Builder: Some Decisions Shouldn’t Be Rushed
Many homeowners are in a hurry to get started and a hurry for their project to be completed. We understand that. Once you decide to move forward, you want to move forward! We recommend you take the time to make a solid decision. Check reviews and references, ask for proof of insurance and ask about workmanship and structural integrity warranties. (It won’t hurt to ask!) Look at as many past project photos as you can. It’s a lot easier to change your mind before you sign a contract.
If you want beautifully-designed and well-crafted outdoor living structures, you may have to wait at different points in the process. We sometimes wait for building permits, HOA approvals, and zoning board approvals (where required). Look at it this way: you’re adding a high-quality outdoor living space you’ll enjoy for many years. Some things are worth the wait.
