What Makes The Best Deck Builder in Bountiful, Park City & Salt Lake? Part Two: The Boring But Crucial Details

Last week we shared the reasons why the best Park City deck builder will not be the cheapest or the quickest but will be the best investment for your outdoor lifestyle and home. We realize there is a lot that goes into making a deck builder the Best Deck Builder, and some of those qualities are neither glamorous nor necessarily apparent in the finished product. These qualities might be boring house-keeping assurances, but they are crucial to protecting you, the homeowner from less than high-quality work, less than honorable contractors and unfortunate accidents.

Archadeck of Salt Lake is part of a nationwide franchise of deck builders that prides itself on a tried and true process for the best customer experience and best quality decks. At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we have policies in place to protect you and us if things do not go perfectly.

Safety, Insurance & Background Checks

We start by protecting you with our hiring process. Our employees all have to pass a thorough background check. All of our contractors follow strict safety guidelines as set by OSHA. For further protection of our employees and you, we are licensed and insured with a $1 million liability coverage as well as full workers compensation insurance.

Clear Project Specifications

Upon project design approval we provide you with full written specifications in your contract. Your contract will include visual designs and an exact project price. While client requested changes can alter the project price during construction, you’ll start the project with an exact price and changes will not be made to the plan without you knowing the financial cost and signing a contract addendum stating the specifics.

HOA Approvals & Permits

We can’t reiterate this enough. At Archadeck of Salt Lake, we always get plans approved by HOA boards. Next, we get design approvals and permits from the local building inspection office. This process ensures your job will be built to meet (and many times exceed) local building codes. With regular inspections and final approval by the building inspector, you can rest easy knowing we did the job right.


Archadeck backs all decks, sunrooms, porches and custom outdoor living spaces with a written warranty for workmanship for 1 year and structural integrity for 5 years. Further backed by the National Guarantee Corporation, you are guaranteed to have your outdoor living project completed to the terms and specifications in your Archadeck contract with a performance warranty for up to 2 years. In addition to the Archadeck warranty, most of our vendors offer manufacturer warranties in the event of material defects. For instance, TimberTech offers a 25-year fade and stain warranty for their Terrain, Tropical and Legacy synthetic decking collections.

While we realize these behind the scenes protections are not very glitzy, but they are absolutely one of the most important things you should consider when choosing a Park City deck builder. Any builder that does not offer protections of this variety should be seriously questioned before hiring them for your Park City outdoor living project. If you’re ready to begin the process of building a luxurious new outdoor living space at your Park City home, call today. 801.683.2355
