Choosing A Contractor
Deck & Patio Contractor Checklist
Whether you’re selecting a porch, patio, sunroom, or deck contractor, choosing the right company is the most important step you will take in securing the project of your dreams. Archadeck Outdoor Living suggests you start with our contractor guide below or watch this short video!
Choose a company with a positive reputation in your area. Porch, sunroom, patio, and deck contractors in your area will be well versed on the local building codes, terrain, and weather conditions that impact the designing and building of outdoor living space.
Listen to Others
Ask your prospective contractors for a few client references. Speaking to clients will give you an idea of the builder you're hiring. Reading online reviews is another good way to gauge how they work with homeowners.
Verify Their Expertise
Looking at examples of a contractor's work will illustrate their experience building projects both simple and elaborate. Especially if you're considering a combination project or have difficult parameters, make sure you know they can build to your specifications.
Check Their License & Insurance
Make sure that your prospective contractors and builders are licensed and insured by government requirements.
Compare Apples to Apples
If you obtain bids from several deck contractors, make sure that each one is bidding on the same scope and quality of work. If there are differences, ask why.
Get A Warranty
An outdoor living space is an investment. Every contractor should offer a written warranty to prove they stand behind their craftsmanship.
Take Your Time
If your ideal outdoor living space is beyond your current budget, ask your contractors about the option of building it in stages. For instance, start with a patio and then add an outdoor kitchen later when your budget permits.
A custom porch can dramatically transform your home, providing an ideal space for outdoor entertainment, peaceful relaxation, and fun times with the family. Whether you want a simple front porch design or a wraparound porch that encases your home, our porch contractors and designers will create a stunning addition to suit your needs and budget.
