The warm weather is here…do you wish your new outdoor living space was too?

PlansHere at Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio we do client consultations for hundreds of homeowners each year and periodically we encounter some who get their perfect space designed but then have to put it on hold for various reasons. They just can’t move forward in pursuing their outdoor living structure project at that moment, but will get back to it a little later. For these homeowners, the good news is that there is never an expiration date on their dream space design, but the bad news is that the pricing for raw materials will more than likely increase. As an alternative, did you know that you can lock-in this year’s pricing and project schedule?

This deck, patio and fire pit flow naturally as one outdoor room!Stop putting your outdoor living space dreams on hold… now is the time to act in order to lock-in this year’s pricing and project schedule! These can include re-decking projects, outdoor room (porch) additions, patios, and amenity additions such as fire pits, fireplaces, and especially outdoor kitchens.  Wouldn’t you love to have that screened porch built in time to watch the colors of fall, or that fire pit to roast marshmallows to your heart’s content during autumn?? You can, but you need to get on the schedule as soon as possible!

NOW is the time to move forward if you want your space built and ready for enjoyment this year! Keep in mind, when dealing with a quality builder wait times can be longer, especially during the outdoor living season. With the summer being our busiest time of the year, our construction crews are booked several weeks out and if you are holding out on a design the schedule is filling up FAST!

The new deck complements the Tudor architecture of this home in Cincinnati, OH.Prices on synthetic/composite materials are can increase throughout the year as building continues and demand increases. By deciding to move ahead with your intended outdoor space and have it designed, planned and scheduled now, it will ensure you can lock into your pricing module for materials and not have to deal with a headache. Making the decision to schedule now will make certain that you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your new structure sooner too!

Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio wants you to know If you build it now…the fun will come…now!

Miamisburg OH Outdoor Living Space Combination is pure blissWe believe building your outdoor living space is much like the movie “Field of Dreams” — maybe one of the best parable movies made to date. In the film, while standing in the middle of his Iowa corn field, the main character hears someone whisper, “If you build it, he will come”, and sees a vision. “It” is a baseball diamond, for which he must plow under his corn field in order to have a place for it and “he” is Shoeless Joe Jackson, a deceased baseball player. No movie spoilers here…but the farmer builds “it” and “he” appears. Now, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio is not implying you have to plow under everything on your property, nor can we bring someone back who has passed, but we will renovate a portion of your site and will absolutely breathe life back into your backyard with your new outdoor living area. After all, you’ve already had the vision of your new space, so (I’m whispering) if you build it now, the fun will come, now!

Don’t put it off any longer. The outdoor living season is right around the corner, so now is the right time to get started and make sure you’re ready before it gets into full swing, (no baseball pun intended).

There are construction benefits for every season, but here are just a few of the reasons you should get your project started now:

  • No one enjoys playing the waiting game!

    Reduced wait times – Our busier season is in the summer, so a smart reason to build your outdoor structure in early spring is the shorter wait time to begin construction. Obtaining required permits and HOA approvals will take less time as well. Less waiting means much more time to enjoy your new space just as the warm days are rolling in. During the outdoor living season, when dealing with a quality builder wait times can be longer.

  •  More time to properly seal your wood structure -If your structure is built from wood, whether pressure treated or hardwood, it 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 now, during the least humid time of year, your wooden structure will have ample time to cure in preparation to accept the sealer you choose. Humid conditions, such as those in our summers, will cause more rapid expansion and contraction of wood that is not yet sealed for protection against the elements.

  •  Greater value for your budget dollar – Furnishing your new structure will be your final task before you can take full advantage of your new space. The outdoor living season is starting up offering you a bounty of deals on outdoor furniture. These savings will allow you to splurge a little on some of the higher end must-have items like outdoor sound systems or a new flat screen TV.

While there is never really a wrong time to begin your outdoor living space project, as you can see from the few reasons above, there are advantages to designing and even building during early spring. To date, almost every client, upon seeing their newly finished outdoor living space, says, “Why on earth didn’t we do this sooner?”…but not one has ever said, “I wish we had waited.”
