This Xenia Township deck gets a new lease on life from Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio

Xenia OH redeckingOur designs here at Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio are often so impressive that some may think all we cater to is building new large-scale combination outdoor living spaces. Fulfilling the dream of the ultimate backyard is something we cater to, the scale of what one customer imagines as their “dream” backyard can be quite different. That being said, we specialize in designing and building new outdoor living spaces and upgrading existing outdoor living spaces — in all shapes and sizes, big and small.

Remember, custom doesn’t only mean extravagant designs with an unlimited budget, but it always means a design tailored to your personal needs and tastes to fit your budget.

One of our most recent completed projects in Xenia Township, OH,  serves as a testament of how making small changes and upgrades to your existing outdoor structure can increase their aesthetics and function dramatically.

  • Before: The decking boards on this existing Xenia, OH, deck had lost their dazzle. Not only were they faded and beginning to warp, the curves and existing fascia board were also in need of attention.

The improvements included in this project were performing structural rework around the integrated trees, adding a new TimberTech composite fascia, replacing numerous deck boards, adding the charming paver landing  and sealing the entire deck to tonally match the color used in the new TimberTech fascia. In addition we also created a small but charming paver surround/landing off the main exit of the deck.

Take a look at this amazing before & after image — wow!

How realistic is your outdoor living addition budget?

BudgetThe subject of budgets is an integral part of every outdoor living space project we do. It is obviously not the most glamorous or most-anticipated element that goes into planning your custom outdoor oasis, but is a necessity in ensuring the vision you have is realistic. Just as we covered in our article ” What does shopping for an outdoor living structure and a car have in common?” it’s only natural for homeowner’s to want the most “options” at the best value. The search for the “right” contractor is much like shopping for a new car — finding the best value with all the features you want within your budget.

BudgetsIt is imperative to establish a budget for your outdoor living project. Deciding how much you want to spend needs to be decided upon before we begin designing your project. This is why we inquire about your intended budget during your initial phone call because of the importance of having one in place before proceeding. We realize this is sometimes a hard decision and we make every effort to make it the opposite (easy). If you are unsure of where you need to set your budget, we can show you our portfolio and pictures to help you get an idea of what you want and what you want to spend.

Archadeck outdoor living blissOne thing is certain when it comes to outdoor living spaces: Imagining yourself having one is easy but being able to afford your expectations of that image can sometimes be difficult. This is mainly because often homeowners have a surreal expectation of what a custom outdoor living space can cost, and what they can afford. This is where our commitment to superior customer service, honesty and communication come into play. We are poised to accommodate the customer, in every way. We ensure all the groundwork is in place from your initial consultation to completion of your project which includes helping you establish a realistic budget. We also extend the utmost flexibility to our customers through a detailed materials and pricing menu, for example if one facet of your vision won’t work with your budget, then we can suggest alternatives that can bring you just as much satisfaction. We also strive to keep you in tune with scheduling and ensuring we not only meet but exceed your expectations as we plan, schedule and complete your project.

Why Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio is the Dayton & Cincinnati area’s trusted outdoor living space advisor

Have you ever had a vision of what you wanted in an outdoor project but was unable to convey this to the salesperson while researching companies for your project?

Have you ever had a vision of what you wanted in an outdoor project but was unable to convey this to the salesperson while researching companies for your project?

Have you ever had a vision of what you wanted in an outdoor project but was unable to convey this to the salesperson while researching companies for your project?  This recently happened to a couple I encountered attending the Miami Valley Home World Show, looking to add a backyard deck to their home.  My booth was in close proximity where I overheard the conversation this couple had with my competitor’s sales people.  This couple wanted several features included on their proposed deck but the conversation with the sales people went along the lines of “No, you can’t do it that way.  You have to do it THIS (my) way.”  By the time the couple reached my booth, they were tired, confused and frustrated. They were turned off to the fact that they may not even be able to have their project completed as they wanted.

Say “NO” to a one size fits all builder,

As tired and frustrated as this couple was, I encouraged them to communicate the features they had in mind for their anticipated deck.  I listened carefully, to what they wanted and showed them the different options that are available.  They seemed relieved to have someone take their concerns seriously and not try to pigeon-hole their concept into a “one size fits all” mentality.  By truly “listening” to this couple I was able to communicate to them they could choose what options they wanted and a design that best fits their budget.

“Quality work, and more importantly, great owner who is responsive to his customers before and after the sale. It’s obvious Tim cares about the work his company is doing.”
— Christopher G. of Dayton, OH

“Very professional group, no surprises, excellent communication. First rate on the workmanship, materials and quality. I would highly recommend to friends and family.”

“We appreciate that Archadeck (Tim) listened to our wants and needs and helped design a pergola that met ( in fact exceeded ) our goals. We have rec’d lots of positive feedback from friends/neighbors and we are enjoying the extra outdoor living space. Happy customers !!”
— Ken D. in Waynesville, OH

“Archadeck built our back yard deck. Our first appointment was very productive. Tim brought his portfolio of past projects and asked about personal preferences. He was very respectful of my choices and budget. Our second appointment was just as productive. I went to his show room and was able to view / judge the different products offered. The project started much later than the approximate date I was given; however, once started it was finished in a timely manner. The workers were very professional and knowledgeable. Their work ethic was commendable (showed up on time and worked very hard in inclement weather to get the job done).”

What does shopping for an outdoor living structure and a car have in common?Shopping for the right contractor to design and build your outdoor living structure is much like any other investment. It’s only natural for homeowner’s to want the most “options” at the best value. The search for the “right” contractor is much like shopping for a new car — to find the best value with all the features you want within your budget.

“Let this be the year that Archadeck makes your outdoor living dreams come true.”

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio explores why NOW is the best time to move ahead with your outdoor living structure addition!

Big question MarkOut of all the questions homeowners ask us in regards to planning and building an anticipated outdoor living space addition, the most frequently asked is “WHEN is the best time to build?” Many factors can fall into play when answering this question, but in essence if you are  ready to pursue your addition then there is no time like the present to get the ball rolling!

While there is never really a wrong time to begin your outdoor living space project since we build structures year-round,  there are advantages to begin the process during the fall and winter months.

  • hassle-free no textAdvantage — A good  reason to begin your outdoor structure in the late fall and winter months is there may be less wait time to begin construction. Gaining approval through HOA’s and permitting will take less time because there is less backlog and this can often make the wait-time minimal in most cases. Making the decision to build now will ensure being able to enjoy the benefits of your new structure sooner and in plenty of time for the arrival of the outdoor living season in the months ahead. Keep in mind, when dealing with a quality builder wait times can be longer, especially during the warm season. Deciding on a fall/ winter project can greatly reduce those wait times.
  • Underside of a cedar shingle gazebo roofAdvantage — If you are considering a structure built from wood, a cooler month project timeline will provide many benefits. Wood requires a time period of acclimation and curing. The laws of expansion and contraction always apply when it comes to working with wood. All wood is hygroscopic, meaning that when exposed to air, it will release or pick up moisture until it is level with the humidity and temperature of the air. Humid conditions, such as those in summer, will cause more rapid expansion and contraction of wood that is not yet sealed for protection against the elements. A structure built from wood needs to cure for a period of time before the sealer or paint will properly adhere to the wood and promote beneficial protection qualities. By choosing to build during the fall & winter the least humid times of year, your new wooden deck or other outdoor structure will have ample time to cure in order to properly accept the sealer or paint you choose.
  • Winter projects mean less interruption of turfAdvantage — Your lawn and landscape will incur less stress by choosing to build during the cooler months of the year — this is because most turf grasses, trees and shrubs are in their dormant period during the late fall and winter. During dormancy, these plantings are less likely to experience permanent damage from having to be trimmed or pruned to accommodate the addition of a backyard space. Aside from the landscape, construction during the winter will cause less of an interruption to your family’s day-to-day activities and lifestyle as most people use their yards less during these months. This means the noises and materials will be less of an annoyance than they would be when you are using the yard a lot during the warmer months.
  • PlansAdvantage — Choosing to move ahead with your project now will save you money in the long-run. This is a driving factor that drives many “fence-sitters” to move ahead. Material prices typically rise during the first part of a new year, especially when dealing with synthetic materials such as composite used for decking.  Along with saving money on materials in some cases building your structure in the later quarters of the year can also help you out when it comes tax time. In addition, if you intend to finance your new outdoor structure, the interest rates are still extremely low which can save you a tremendous amount over the long haul. Even if our project timeline exceeds the calendar year, deciding on your intended design and getting the contract signed prior to the end of November will ensure you are locked into this year’s pricing. For many homeowners, the savings  are reason enough to move ahead with getting all the logistics in place now, instead of waiting until later.

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio brings home three awards!

Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio awards for 2014We have just returned from attending the Outdoor Living Brand’s annual conference. Archadeck corporate staff and franchise owners from all over the country gathered for an enlightening three days to increase brand knowledge while meeting with other members of the Archadeck family to discuss ideas, share successes and learn about ways to better serve our valued customers. During the meeting there was also a special time set aside for Archadeck to announce the award winners for excellence in sales, customer service and design. Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio brought home three impressive awards from this year’s meeting.

Dayton and Cincinnati's premier outdoor living structure designer and builderIn the combination outdoor living space category, the outdoor living structure group considered a favorite amongst clients and builders, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio won third place for our awe-inspiring combination project in Clear Creek Township, OH. An “outdoor living combination” is achieved when the function and aesthetic assets of two or more outdoor structures are merged within the design and construction to make them function as one large space. The details of our award-winning space include a spacious open deck and porch finished in all low-maintenance materials. The project also includes a stunning patio and custom integrated fire pit.  The images below confirm that this outdoor living space truly exemplifies the visual interpretation of poetry in motion.

Miami Township award winning sunroon and deck combination spaceArchadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio was also awarded third place in the porch and enclosures design catagory for our newly completed project for repeat customers at their newest address, located in Miami Township, near Dayton Ohio. This project is an example of our staged building program, with phase one marking the completion of the sunroom and deck. Phase two is to include a hot tub deck that leads into a paver patio with a custom fire pit (this will be completed at the homeowner’s discretion). Thus far, the completed space includes a rustic open gable sunroom built with select rough hewn cedar and a custom adjoining deck.

Archadeck of West Central and SW Ohio customer service award 2014Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio was also recognized for outstanding customer service and was awarded a Customer Satisfaction Acheivment Award. This award is based on surveys from our large customer base.

Don’t let the season become the reason for putting your outdoor living plans on hold!

Old Man WinterWinters in Central and Southwest Ohio can be quite frigid. Snow, ice and temperatures that dip well below freezing can make it hard to imagine that warm weather is actually a lot closer than you think. In spite of the song “Baby, it’s cold outside” crooning over the airways during the holiday season many homeowners daydream about the first signs of spring and the satisfaction that comes with spending it outdoors! If an outdoor living space addition is part of your daydream now is the perfect time to move ahead in planning the project you have in mind for the coming year. Choosing to proceed in spite of the season, or weather, comes with a long list of benefits:

Save moneyBeginning now will save you money:  Materials used in outdoor structure construction generally increase with the arrival of the new year. Several factors contribute to this increase, including supply & demand, and even fuel costs. Materials such as premium pressure treated lumber, pavers, railing and composite decking such as TimberTech or AZEK often increase in price with the arrival of a new calendar year. Our consistent building volume allows us to lock in materials with “this” years pricing for you. One way to avoid price increases is to have the contract signed for your addition prior to the end of the calendar year. This will ensure you are locked into this year’s pricing in the event material prices increase in the new year.

In some cases building your structure in the later quarters of the year can save money with typically lower interest rates as well as when it comes tax time. In addition, once your structure is complete, you’ll want to furnish and decorate it to complement your current home’s style. All of those “after Christmas” and “end of season” sales will offer you a bounty of savings on outdoor furniture, allowing you to splurge on some of the higher end must have items like outdoor sound systems or state of the art BBQ grills, or even a BIg Green Egg…all while staying within your budget!

Waiting in LineNo standing in line: During the warmer months backlogs and wait times for quality outdoor living space builders, such as Archadeck, can be quite lengthy. Having the foresight to have us plan, design and schedule your outdoor living project in the winter will eliminate having to wait in long lines to have your outdoor living space built and ready to enjoy for the outdoor living season ahead. Naturally, many people think of building outdoor projects in the late spring and summer when the weather is nice and they want to get outside, but sometimes it can be challenging to hire a quality contractor during this time.

Winter spring summer or fallLess impact to the landscape: We design and build outdoor structures for the way you and your family want to live outdoors. Our goal includes creating a space that looks original to your home, no matter what the age or style of architecture your home happens to be. As with any construction project, there will be damage to the landscaping caused by foot traffic and equipment, however, winter constructions inflict less damage to turf grasses and plants (as many are in their period of dormancy during this time), thus preserving your home’s surroundings.

Ample curing time for wooden structures: As for protecting the value of your investment, when building with wood, fall and winter projects have more time to cure properly to ensure they are in tip-top shape for the upcoming outdoor living season. A structure built from wood needs to cure for a period of time before the sealer will properly adhere to the wood and promote beneficial protection qualities. By choosing to build during the least humid time of year, your wooden structure will have ample time to cure in preparation to accept the sealer you choose to preserve your investment.
