When it Comes to Choosing an Outdoor Structure Builder, Beware of the “Tail-light Warranty”

hassle-free no textWe have all heard the old sayings of  “you get what you pay for” and “haste makes waste.” These ring true in many situations we encounter including choosing a builder for your new outdoor structure project. It is wise to explore your options and research any prospective builder by looking at their reviews and perusing their portfolio of completed projects, however it is also smart to be cautious about the builder that quickly brings the lowest price to the table and is ready to begin your project on a moment’s notice.

Keep in mind, that seasoned builders know what it takes structurally to ensure your safety and satisfaction. They also rarely have no pending projects on their backlogs to begin a project at the spur of the moment, securing proper permits and making sure quality materials to complete the project are all on hand takes a little time. Be very wary of those that claim they can start on a dime, chances are they aren’t pulling required permits necessary to even break ground. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and a professionally designed and built outdoor living structure shouldn’t be either. The impetus here is to realize that if a builder is ready to break ground immediately on your project chances are their services are not in high demand. This can be a direct reflection of their business practices and quality of work.

The ultimate backyard room

In our 26+ years of service we have seen, and repaired, many projects where the homeowner hastily hired a builder just to get the project completed quickly. Not only where many of these structures dangerous, they usually resulted in the homeowner spending more to make it right than they would have had they hired us initially.

Another aspect to consider before you rush into your project, are the builders credentials… does the builder have a license,  or even insurance? These may seem trivial but are crucial if something goes wrong while the builder, or crew, is injured or has an accident while working on your property because you could be held liable.

contractor-selection-checklist

Last but certainly not least is to beware of the builder that only offers what is referred to as “the tail light warranty” — in essence, this means the warranty extends just as long as the tail lights are visible as he is leaving your project — funny to joke about, but not so much if you are the one watching them fade into the distance. When you choose Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio to build your outdoor living structure(s) you will be protected by two separate guarantees, constituting the most expansive customer protection plan in the industry. And local oversight assures your property and privacy are respected as well. We attend to every detail from securing any needed building permits  to final cleanup.

Part of the joy of being your local Big Green Egg distributor is being able to taste new flavors s and learn about new recipes to enjoy on the Big Green Egg. Here’s a recipe that is sure to be a summertime favorite, beer can chicken on the Big Green Egg!

Beer can chicken on the big green egg

Ingredients:
•1 (4 to 5-pound) chicken
•1 (12-ounce) can beer
•1 cup apple cider
•2 tablespoons olive oil
•2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Equipment:
•Porcelain coated grid, 1 (12-ounce) beer can or “Sittin’ Chicken” Ceramic Roaster, 9 by 13-inch Drip Pan,
spray bottle.

Set the EGG for direct cooking with the porcelain coated grid and preheat the EGG to 375ºF.
Apply your favorite rub all over the chicken, even inside the cavity. Work the mixture gently into the skin
and under the skin wherever possible. Cover the chicken and set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Pour half of the beer into the spray bottle. Add the apple cider, olive oil, and vinegar and set aside. If using
the Ceramic Roaster, pour the remaining beer into the cavity of the Roaster and slide the chicken onto the
Roaster, through the tail end. If using the beer can, slide the chicken down over the can.
Place the chicken, still on the Roaster, on the grid and close the lid of the EGG. Cook, using the spray
bottle to baste the chicken once or twice, for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is just beginning to brown all
over. Carefully lift the chicken (still on the Roaster) into the Drip Pan and close the lid of the EGG. Cook,
spraying the chicken with the basting spray several times, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the internal
temperature of the thigh reaches 170ºF and the chicken is a mahogany brown color. Using barbecue mitts
remove the chicken and present it on the Roaster to your guests. After they have reacted appropriately,
remove the chicken from the Roaster. Be careful: The can and the liquid inside are very hot.
Spray the chicken once more with the basting spray, cover with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. Carve and serve.

Serves 4.
