How to Choose a Deck Builder

During the course of the year, many of us as you would expect turn to the outdoors for entertaining, and this inevitably creates a very high demand for decks, arbours, patio covers, and other outdoor living spaces. Inappropriately, not all deck builders are at the same level and selecting one can from time to time be a stressful experience. Upscale landscaping companies aren’t very idle all summer as they are busy in building beautiful backyard stone and masonry patios for discerning customers. In the recent times, if homeowners wish to get elevated decks, composites and treated wood were their only preferences as a decking material. You can now include stone and masonry to your list of decking material suggestions by using Silca Grate on the structural portion of your deck. Here are a few tips to help you choose a builder that will not leave you hanging after you’ve capitalised time and money in a project.

Firstly, look for a builder who wants little or no down payment. There have been many times when we have heard the stories about a friend or family member who gave a contractor hundreds or thousands of dollars, only to end up being left with a project that was poorly built, or even worse never completed.

Second, search for a company who is licensed in your city. Sometimes, a company will procure a license in a small city and use it to piggyback into larger areas. The problem with this is that small cities rarely have the stringent requirements and oversight for licensing procedures that are common in larger cities.

Third, ask your possible builders if they provide any third party reviews. Companies who are doing the work properly won’t balk at being asked to subject the project to a third party inspection.

Fourth, look for a company that controls its own supply chain. This can be complicated, but don’t hesitate to ask questions about where the company gets its material from.

Fifth, find out what supplementary services are being included with your project. Some companies are there merely to build the deck or other project. Most will help with design, but only some will help with things like homeowner’s association submissions or finding qualified contractors to help with plumbing or electrical work involved in the project.

Sixth and the final, read the fine print about the warranty being accessible on the project. Many companies will say that they propose anywhere from a five year to even a lifetime warranty on their products, but unfortunately these profligate claims are usually liable upon so many pre-requisites being met that they are virtually valueless.
