Tag Archives: When is the best time to plan design and build your outdoor structure

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.

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

 

 

 

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 and Southwest Ohio designs and builds year-round!  We can also design and build your dream backyard in stages as part of our staged building program. With this in mind, any time is the perfect time to start the first stage of your desired outdoor living project. If you are considering a deck, patio and fire pit combination for example, you can take advantage of our staged building option and build the deck now and then we can add the patio and fire pit later in the fall, or as your lifestyle and budget sees fit. With our staged building program the choice is yours.

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!

baseballCan’t you just see yourself soaking up some sun on your new deck or you and several friends catching one of this season’s Major League Baseball games on your flat screen TV in your new outdoor living room? 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!

    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.”

If your dream space seems to be a little bit more than your budget can handle all at once, we can design and build your dream backyard in stages as part of our staged building program too. With this in mind, early spring is the perfect time to start the first stage of your desired outdoor living project, such as the deck as part of a deck and screened porch, or deck and patio combination — the possibilities are endless for creating the backyard of your dreams!

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.

Fall is a great time to set the wheels in motion in regards to your anticipated outdoor living space addition!

It is the gifts of Mother Nature that make outdoor living so enjoyable and desirable.

Every season has its upside; however, autumn has a fascinating beauty to it. When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. As a lover of this season, I sit in awe as the backdrop of my world comes alive with changes in nature and its color palette. It is this environment that makes outdoor living so enjoyable and desirable. Your outdoor living space allows you to not only appreciate, but share your “little corner of the world”, and its changes, with friends and family.

Did you know that fall is also a great time to initiate or enhance your outdoor living space projects? 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.

If you missed your opportunity this summer, don’t despair. Right now is a great time to hire Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio to get things in place for next year. Projects like decks, covered areas, pergolas and patios are not weather sensitive. Like many wood and masonry projects, they can be completed in any season, but if you begin now, you’ll reap additional savings that are specific to this season.

Who doesn’t like to save? There are so many things that can be saved or preserved, like photographs saving moments in time and preserving family memories, but when contracting an outdoor living project, saving time and money while preserving the style and value of your home are of the utmost importance!

Hiring Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio for your fall project saves time for you. The backlog for work is generally shortened moving into the cooler months making it the perfect time to build! Required permit applications and HOA approvals have shorter waiting periods…thus saving time in the overall project schedule. Making the decision to build now will ensure being able to reap the benefits of your new structure sooner and in plenty of time for warm weather. Your time is valuable, so choosing to build this time of year involves less of an interruption to your life, as most people use their yards less during the fall and winter months. Also during the fall there are minimal limitations with construction due to weather so schedules stay on track more…allowing you to plan your next event more accurately.

Choosing to have your outdoor structure designed, scheduled and constructed by Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio during the cooler months can save you money for many reasons. As materials typically increase in price at the beginning of a new year, our consistent building volume allows us to lock in materials with “this” years pricing for you. 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 “end of season” sales will offer you a bounty of savings on outdoor furniture, thus allowing you to splurge a little on some of the higher end must have items like outdoor sound systems and state of the art BBQ grills…all while staying within your budget!

What is your greatest backyard wish as you plan your July 4th outdoor celebration?

Memorial Day Weekend in Dayton & Cincinnati OH

The 4th is not only the birthday of this great country, but maybe the largest annual pilgrimage to backyards in the US!

Yes, it is already that time again; tomorrow is the 4th of July. A time that marks not only the birthday of this great country, but maybe the largest annual pilgrimage to backyards in the US! This is the day that hits you the hardest if you have an inadequate (or non-existent) outdoor living space. It is also the day you are left wishing you would have moved ahead with plans to enhance your space sooner, for many homeowners it will be a day full of “I should have’s” and “I wishes.” Alas… all is not lost– there is still time to make your backyard wish come true and still plenty of summer to enjoy it!

When you do make the decision to move ahead with your outdoor living space plans, there are many beneficial elements to consider. There are key elements to focus on when creating an outdoor living space. These elements will be sure to bring your backyard beauty, and the serenity you are looking for in an outdoor space. They will also guarantee many successful outdoor celebrations in the future.

  • Key elements for backyard bliss:

There is still time to backyard wish come true and still plenty of summer to enjoy!

Plenty of seating areas – One of the main reasons homeowners create outdoor living spaces is to engage friends and family for great entertaining. A comfortable, well-placed seating area will make your space more inviting. Seating can be accommodated a number of ways, from designing separate functional areas spacious enough for your outdoor furniture, to built-in seating such as integrated bench seating on your new deck. Even stairs of a deck can be designed to double as additional seating when in a pinch. The key to a successful outdoor living design is to never overlook the obvious when it comes to seating!

Enjoy your backyard!

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and the backyard!

Plan for cooking space – Cooking outdoors is a great way to spend those summer holidays, like the 4th of July or Labor Day. Having an outdoor kitchen available makes holidays like these a perfect time to invite friends and family over for a barbecue. For larger spaces we can design a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio can design a custom outdoor kitchen that includes the same components that are found in the best interior gourmet kitchens! These include a grilling station, warming drawer, ice maker, sink and refrigerator. We are also your local dealer for the Big Green Egg, and since the Egg comes in 5 different sizes we can easily integrate this versatile outdoor cooker into any outdoor cooking space, large or small!

Don’t forget a covered spot  having a roofed structure, such as a porch or screened porch would allow you to rest easy regardless of the weather. If clear skies turn to rain during an outdoor celebration, a covered or screened porch would prevent guests from having to run inside or perhaps leave early. Having a screened porch would mean you could relax during the summer evenings and enjoy the setting sun as your ceiling fan keeps you cool in your bug-free space. When the sun beats down on your fun, a porch, or even a pergola can provide a shady spot to cool off!

We are in the midst of summer, and as we head into the 4th of July weekend, our outdoor spaces become the seasonal heart of our homes. If you haven’t built the outdoor space you’ve always wanted, now is a great time to do it. Remember: summer isn’t over for two more months.There’s still enough time to plan a Labor Day celebration your family, and friends will remember.

If you haven’t made plans to build your outdoor dream space yet, call us now so you can finish the summer season in style.  Let your family and friends get excited about your outdoor space this season. Let this year’s Labor Day celebration be a taste of what they can expect next year. If next winter is like our last one, being able to look out at your planned outdoor living space and thinking about the good times ahead may make this winter feel a little bit warmer too!

Not surprisingly, the spring and summer months make up our busiest season here at Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio. As the weather warms up and people move outside they often realize that they need to improve their outdoor living space. Unfortunately, if you wait to pursue your project until spring, it may make take months to get your new outdoor living structure built. Waiting in line can also cut down on the time you can actually use your space during the 2014 outdoor living season.

Maybe you have a son or daughter that will be graduating this spring, or are hosting a family reunion, wedding or special occasion at your home in the coming months. Wouldn’t an outdoor living space addition serve these occasions well by expanding your outdoor entertaining possibilities? If you anticipate the need for a new deck, porch, patio or even a pergola to use as the focal point of a backyard wedding — now is the time to plan for these additions to ensure they are finished in time to utilize for these backyard functions. Here is a look at a few of the decks we have built that have added function and enjoyment to homeowners right here in the Dayton and Cincinnati area…

In planning your perfect outdoor oasis, we begin with ironing out the details of your intended design. During this phase of the project we work closely with you to learn your expectations, preferences and dislikes. We will prepare your design to make sure it is exactly as you want. We will even produce a 3-D rendering to view your design realistically. Once your specific design is finalized, we then draw the building plans. These plans are submitted to your specific county for permitting, and any third party approval boards such as HOA’s. Permitting can take up to several weeks according to existing backlogs or other conditions. Once the permit and approvals are received, we can then begin building your project. Depending on the scale and elements involved in your project, you may be able to begin enjoying your completed structure(s) in a matter of weeks!

Yes we work in the winter!
