When we start a project, we focus on the process. Our process begins with an initial appointment where we go out to your place and take a look at what we’ll work with. We make professional suggestions based upon what we see, combine those with your vision, and wrap it up with an estimate for you. Once we sketch your custom deck design and you approve it, we engineer a more specific drawing and calculate the exact cost of the project.
Then we come out a second time for a presentation on the final drawing. Once it is approved and within your budget, we agree by cash or check with 10% down to lock in your build date, pull permits, and engineer the plans for building. 40% is due the day materials arrive and we start the project. Then the last 50% is paid when we complete the project to your satisfaction.
Repair & Restaining
Over time, most decks diminish in some way, shape, or form. In addition to restaining and maintaining your deck, we have a variety of repair options available. We resurface decks, which means we rip up the old boards and replace them with new ones. Many customers opt to replace wood decks with composite materials, which offer lasting beauty and minimal maintenance. This simple process usually costs less than fully replacing a deck or building a new project.
If your project has a solid structure, we often will not need deal with footings or digging into the soil. We check the quality of structure on the initial appointment to observe any problem areas we may need to fix as we work. However, if there are structural issues that need repair, we can do that too.
