The Importance of Hiring a Professional

When it comes to hiring a contractor, the precept, “you get what you pay for,” truly comes into play. For professional services and professional results, you must choose a professional service provider.

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio wants you to know that this adage is especially applicable when it comes to building a new outdoor living area onto your home. If you are considering building a new deck, porch, patio, or any outdoor structure call us for custom designs and guaranteed professional results. Never trust a super-fast or super-inexpensive builder to deliver exemplary building results. Trust Archadeck to deliver on every positive aspect of your new building project.

Professional building results take time.

At Archadeck of West Central & SW Ohio, we know that our clients are excited to build their new space even before they call us. Most have been researching design options and building materials for their new outdoor living area for some time before contacting us. While we are also anxious to build your space, know that the Archadeck process is in place to be certain that your every need is fulfilled. We will take the time to get to know you – how you want to use your space, how much space you will need, how much time you care to spend maintaining it, and how many seasons of use you prefer. As experienced builders of outdoor living structures, we also want you to know that if a contractor says he can start building your project immediately after your first telephone conversation, you likely should not hire them.

We will custom-design your outdoor living space.

After your design consultation, we will present a custom rendering of your project for your review. This will show you what your new outdoor living space will look like on your home. It will also showcase design elements we discussed during your consultation, bringing your intended design to life before it’s built. This will not be provided by a non-professional builder.

We will include a complete building materials spec list with your quote.

When you receive your Archadeck building quote, it will be complete with all building materials listed. This will include patio paver types and colors, wood framing, specialty shade products, composite decking types and colors, and more. You will know exactly what will be used to build your project, based on your choices during our design consultation process. This is not something you will ever receive from a fly-by-night builder.

We will obtain all necessary building permits.

Archadeck is a full-service outdoor living design and build firm. This means that we will handle all aspects of your building project. We will obtain your building permits. We will schedule your construction inspections. We will do everything for you. This is not a service provided by non-professional builders.

Professional builders have professional certifications and qualifications.

You must hire a certified and insured building contractor to build your new outdoor living space, without exception. Even if you have a friend or family member, who has used another builder, who is not certified and insured, you should never allow them to work on your home. Even if that person is a friend or family member. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is a certified and insured contractor, which will protect you throughout your design and building process.

We are a NARI certified remodeling contractor.

Archadeck of West Central & SW Ohio is certified by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. Archadeck’s owner, Tim Stephens, scored the highest in the nation the year he sat for the NARI exam. Our entire team of professionals has the knowledge, training, and experience to give you the best outdoor living space for your home and family – safely and beautifully. You will not find a less-than-professional deck builder to have credentials, such as a NARI certification. As a matter of fact, you will not find other professional builders to have this level of certification.

Hiring an outdoor building specialist is imperative.

Let’s consider for a moment that you are familiar with a qualified building contractor, but that contractor does not specialize in outdoor living structures. Now, you can likely expect a trusted contractor to build a structurally sound porch, deck, or pergola. What you probably cannot expect is for that contractor to deftly guide you through crucial outdoor living design decisions. Will that builder suggest low-maintenance materials? Will that builder take into account that a family member has a bee sting allergy, and suggest a screened porch instead of a deck or open porch? Will that builder consider that you host a family reunion at your home each year, making certain that your space can accommodate large crowds? Probably not. With our vast experience in building for only outdoor living needs, we will build the space that is perfect for you in every way – usage-wise and budget-wise.

Professionals offer financing options and warranties.

Unlike, non-professional builders, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio offers project financing options. Our budget-minded clients, who want to build a premium space without paying a premium price up-front, can quickly and easily apply for financing. In addition to manufacturers’ warranties, Archadeck offers workmanship and structural warranties on all our building projects. You will not get this with non-professional deck builders, and you will not get this level of protection from any other qualified remodeling industry contractor.
