The old business adage says you can pick 2 out of the 3; Fast, Cheap, & Good. While this is certainly a great notion in business, it does not apply to deck building. While we know it can be tempting to go with your lowest bid or the contractor who can start your job the soonest, we have to caution you to take the time to investigate your contractor. Making a wise investment for the long-term safety, quality, and value of your new outdoor living addition is much more important than the lowest price or the quickest time frame.
Good Deck Builders are Busy Deck Builders
At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we are neither the cheapest nor the fastest. It is peak season in the deck building world which means we have a queue for design consultations and project starts. A wait list is something that all good deck builders will have during the spring and summer months. If you have a deck builder telling you he/she is ready to have their crew start tomorrow, I would think “Why is this deck builder not busier?” The answer might give you pause in choosing them as your deck builder.
Custom Quality Decks Can’t Be the Cheapest
Many deck builders try to cut costs by pushing one-size fits all deck, patio and porch designs. At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we want every homeowner to get exactly the deck that fits their house, style, and needs. The function has to be there, or the whole project is a bust. We look at outdoor living as an investment in your home. We will custom design every aspect of your outdoor living project. We use the best fasteners and hardware and advise our clients to use the best decking materials. Excellent products yield long-lasting decks and porches for the best investment.
Permits, Permits & Permits
The Archadeck process guarantees that all of our building codes will meet or exceed local and state building codes. Our decks are built for longevity and safety, and we take this process very seriously. When it comes to building a safe deck, it is key to pull the proper permits and have the proper inspections from our local building enforcement to ensure the job was done correctly. Most deck failures happen where the deck connects to your home; an inspection will guarantee your deck is connected properly. If a permit is not pulled and inspections are not done, you or the next buyer of your home could be forced to tear it down.
