Proud to win a 3rd year in a row

Consumers choice Archadeck of ColumbusWhat do you call it when something good happens three years in a row? It’s certainly not a “turkey” like in bowling. “Third time’s the charm” makes it sound like we didn’t win it before. Perhaps there is nothing to call it but a tremendous and humbling honor. Archadeck of Columbus is so excited to have won the prestigious Consumer’s Choice Award for 2014 in the category of Home Improvement: Patio and Deck Builders. In fact, we are honored that this is the 3rd year in a row that we’ve won.

You may be wondering how the nomination and award selection process works in competitions like this. The Consumer’s Choice Award board advertised on TV and radio for people to visit their website to nominate a business. People were not given a list to choose from. They needed to already know about our company. The were asked to “consider issues such as Value, Service, Professionalism, Appearance of the Business or any other criteria you wish to take into account.”

After Consumer’s Choice collected nominations, it hired a top consumer research company called Survey Sampling International® to query a panel of roughly 5,000 respondents in the Columbus area. Next, a legal panel validates the work of the consumers by reviewing the background of each of the companies to make sure that they meet important ethical standards. Only after a company clears all of those hurdles can it be named a Consumers’ Choice Award winner.

I wish I could thank all the people who helped us to win this award through nominating or voting for us. I’d like to thank the people who helped us earn this recognition: my office, design, and construction staff. If you haven’t met them, you should. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, more professional group to work with. I’m so lucky. We will continue to work hard through 2015 to earn the privilege of winning this prestigious award again next spring. Even if we are not lucky enough to win for a 4th year, I’d be satisfied to spend another year creating more gorgeous Columbus decks, porches, patios and outdoor living spaces for our local Buckeye families.

Love to spend time in your sunny Columbus OH back yard? Want shade?

If you are like me, you are trying to figure out ways to get more sun, not less. But, trust me, there will soon come a time when you will be looking for ways to get a little protection from the hot summer sunshine. One of the most beautiful and versatile ways to introduce additional shade to your deck, patio or yard is by building a Columbus pergola.

Pergolas are open structures that can transform your yard or garden into a cooler, quieter, more peaceful haven. They frequently have a lattice design across the “roof” which provides shade on its own and may also serve as a frame for decorative climbers like clematis or wisteria. Whether or not your pergola is adorned with greenery, it provides a striking vertical interest to your yard.

This TimberTech deck includes classic white rail with decking boards as rail caps.

Pergolas can be free-standing and may be designed in many different shapes with details that complement the architecture of your home and yard.  One of the first things we look at when starting a discussion about a pergola or Columbus arbor or trellis is the orientation of the yard with regards to the sun. It’s important to orient the structure so that it best suits your needs during the prime outdoor entertaining months. We’ll also help you choose the size of your pergola based on how you plan to use it– I love them for their flexibility is size, design, and choice of material.

Many of our customers love vinyl pergolas because they are low maintenance and their slats are angled slightly to provide additional shade. White is the most popular color for our vinyl structures as many homes have white trim on their windows or elsewhere on their exterior, which provides a nice visual tie-in. Beige is another option. Regardless of color, vinyl offers superior strength and long life, in addition to its easy-care nature.

Pressure-treated pine is the least expensive option for building a pergola, with cedar at the midrange (about 20% more) and vinyl at the higher end (about a 75% premium, depending on the design). Fiberglass and aluminum have a smaller presence in the marketplace. Regardless of the material you choose for your Columbus pergola, it will be a gorgeous adornment to a walkway, deck, patio or other seating area.

If you are interested in a new twist on the traditional pergola design, I’d encourage you to check out ShadeTree canopies. They have an almost Mediterranean look, which will make you feel like you have an exotic getaway locale right in your own backyard. Whether you choose ShadeTree or another pergola design, you have the option of upgrading with ceiling fans, lights, speakers or other accessories that will make your yard more fun and festive. Bring us your ideas or ask us for some. Brainstorming your dream backyard is the most fun part of every free consultation.

Your big May or June outdoor event needs to be started in March – if you are planning on using your new Columbus deck or porch

Don’t wait! Do you have a backyard event you’re planning for May, June, or July? Are you planning on having that event on a new deck, porch or patio? If so, you will want to call your Columbus outdoor builder in March or as soon as you can.

Marysville Columbus TimberTech brown oak deckI know it sounds counter intuitive to be calling Archadeck for a free consultation on a Columbus deck now when you don’t really need your new space until May, June or July; but if you wait until things get nice outside to start thinking about your project, it will be too late for you to get the most out of your new space this summer.  Believe it or not, it’s only early March and we are already booked into late April. Once a new project is on the schedule, we need several weeks to work through all the steps of the design and permitting process. For example, in Powell, Lewis Center, Westerville, and other parts of Delaware County, OH, we complete one of these forms and wait as long as four weeks for approval.

Are you looking forward to a barbecue blowout for Memorial Day weekend? If you give us a call now, there may still be time to get a new deck and grill pad in place for the event. Want to host a graduation party in the backyard? You won’t have to worry about a rain-out if you have a new screened porch for your guests. Regardless of your plans for outdoor entertaining this summer, the key to making them happen is to act on them now.

perfect backyard oasis in Columbus OH by Archadeck lrDon’t be tempted to delay with the rationale that you can simply choose a builder who isn’t busy. If a contractor or tradesman isn’t busy in central Ohio in spring and summer, you have to ask yourself why. Then ask them for referrals because they are either new to the area or they don’t have repeat customers or clients who sent friends and neighbors their way. Your family’s safety, your wallet, and your sanity demand that you find someone to work with who is professional and reliable.

It’s already March. If you call now, you can talk to me about your Columbus porch or patio project (and I’d love to!). I can give you my enthusiastic and undivided attention.

Cost vs. Value: the real value is in really living in your Columbus home

cost vs valueIf you aren’t in the home construction or real estate industries, you probably missed the news that the new “Cost vs. Value” report for 2015 is out. Briefly stated, it looks at different home improvement projects regionally and nationally and attempts to quantify the cost of doing a project and how much the finished project will add to a home’s market value. This document is well regarded by professionals, but often overlooked by homeowners. I mention it because it conveys some important lessons.

The first and most important takeaway from this report is the same each and every year: the primary reason to build an addition or remodel your house is that it is something you want and will use and enjoy. If you assess almost any project solely on the the basis of the cost you will recoup from the financial investment, most of them are not worth it. The real value lies in how the deck or patio or bathroom or garage door will improve the quality of life you have in your home while you own it. Your home is an investment, but that’s secondary the the fact that is is where you live.

If you enjoy spending time outside socializing with friends and family, a Columbus deck (either wood or composite) remains a superior choice for a home improvement project in this area. Decks are wonderful places to spend time and make memories and one will almost certainly increase your home value at sale. According to this year’s report, at sale time, you will recoup 67.9% of your week deck investment and 55.8% of your composite deck addition. But, if you come home each night from work and head straight to the tub for a long soak, you may be better off with a bathroom remodel.

Installation of a home office provides very little payback at sale time, but if you need a home office, you need a home office. Again, your home is where you live (and maybe work) and it has to suit your lifestyle, needs and taste. The longer you plan to stay in your home, the more real value you will get from your project. You don’t want to be one of those people who waits until they are ready to move before doing all the delayed projects. Why should the new owner of your home get to have all the fun with the new fire pit you always wanted?

Digging a little more deeply into the report, we learn that the Columbus deck projects used to generate these numbers are cookie cutter affairs: 16×20’ rectangles with a railing, bench and 3 steps into the yard. Anecdotal evidence from our customers tells us that professionally designed custom deck projects like those created by Archadeck are almost always a featured selling point for homes when they go on the market. They dramatically improve the curb appeal of a home and are a feature buyers remember as they move from house to house, looking for the right fit. That’s a whole new level of value.

Outdoor living trends for Columbus in 2015

One of my high school teachers always encouraged her students to ask the questions we had because, “If you have a question, someone else probably has the same question too.” With that in mind, I’d like to share some common questions I get which may help with some insight into what’s trending now and will likely to continue to trend at least early in 2015.

Q: What materials will people use the most in decks for 2015?

Synthetics like TimberTech make up about 80% of our deck business and we don’t foresee that changing much.

Q: Will we see anything new in composites?

Yes. TimberTech generally adds to their line at the beginning of each year. I understand they will add new colors to their line including a gray board.

Q: What new colors are becoming popular?

Dark brown is rising in popularity and we will build a lot of decks with contrasting colors, like those done in a picture frame design. Clients are also getting more creative with some of their trim choices on the sides.

Q: How about railings? Anything new there?

Nothing new really, but we anticipate high demand for aluminum because its thin profile allows for a superior view of your yard.

Q: What alternatives are there to the traditional rectangular deck?

Most houses are very linear so rectangular decks are always going to be popular. Having said that, we can use angles to soften the shape of the back of the house and add some visual interest to the design. It’s really the best of both worlds and less expensive than going with round or curvy.

Q: What’s hot in deck accessories?

Built-in lighting, especially with LED bulbs, is a trend that’s here to stay. It makes sense: why go to the trouble of building a deck and then make it hard to use after the sun sets? We can put accent lighting on stairs, which is a terrific safety feature, or mount it on posts or railings. If you can see your deck, you are going to use it more. And the newest generation of bulbs is energy efficient and designed to last. We can even link your lights to a timer or remote control for easy use.

Q: How about patios? What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in them over the last 4 years?

Larger stones are being requested more often. I’m ordering a lot of 8×12 and 12×12 stones. When I first started installing Columbus patios there were more 3×8 or 4×8 blocks. We also are building patios with different natural stones.

Q: Why are people using different sizes?

Sometimes they want to have more than one pattern in the layout, like using a soldier course inlay, a sailor course or designing the patio like a deck picture frame. We’ve collaborated on some really beautiful, creative projects using multiple sizes of pavers and stone.

Q: What are your customers adding to the patio base?

We are including lots of vertical components. Seating walls are terrific for a variety of purposes. Planters and pillars add visual interest and provide great opportunities for seasonal decorating. And, of course, we install fire pits and fireplaces.

Q: What stone colors are going to be popular next year?

Browns, buffs and grays. I think people like to use the colors of stones that they see in the environment around them. Reds generally are not as popular in this area.

Q: What feature do you consider a “must have” for a Columbus patio?

Lights. They provide safety and make any outdoor space more beautiful and useable. You can never go wrong with outdoor lighting.

Q: Any last words of outdoor living wisdom?

It may sound a little simplistic, but I always remind customers that the patio doesn’t end at the edge of the stones. You have to give some thought to what you will see all around it. Make sure to have a landscaping plan, even if it’s not fancy. If gardening is not one of your passions, we can help with Columbus landscape design and recommendations for low maintenance plants suitable to our climate.

We know cedar is great for indoor use. Is it a good outdoor wood for your Columbus outdoor living space?

Columbus cedar pergola and hardscape duo

Many of my customers choose composite decking for under their feet because you can’t beat it for durability and ease of maintenance. But humans have been building with wood for thousands of years and I think we’ll always respond on an emotional level to its feel and beauty. That’s why I frequently suggest that homeowners who want to integrate natural wood into their project consider adding vertical elements made of cedar to their composite deck design.

Cedar vs. pine

Cedar is a little softer than pine, but it contains oils that keep it from expanding and contracting the way that pine will during the freeze/thaw cycle that we have in central Ohio and throughout the Midwest. It’s also, to my eye, a much prettier wood than pine. It has wonderful color and grain patterns. Cedar is also very accepting of a wide range of stains so you can get the look that you want. It contains naturally occurring fungicides which give Western Red Cedar its resistance to decay. Properly finished and cared for, cedar  has a superior lifespan when used for applications above the floor.

Best uses for cedar

Because it resists warping and is so easy to work with, we can use cedar in almost any application not subject to foot traffic. Railings, pergolas, gazebos, fences, bench seats: these are all

Enjoy using cedar for the open rafter ceiling on your open porch

great uses for red cedar. Just off the top of my head, I’d estimate that 90% of the pergolas we build are made of cedar. If you are building a Columbus porch and want a rustic look, you will enjoy the look of cedar on the ceiling, for knee walls or trim around posts. Any of those applications will give your room the feeling of a mountain ski chalet or hunting cabin. If you have ever stood in a cedar closet, you know what a warm feeling cedar gives you.

Best bang for the buck

While I don’t recommend cedar for the floor of your deck, it is absolutely a terrific, budget-friendly option to consider for other key elements of your outdoor living areas. It is less expensive than composites and, for a mere 15-20% cost premium over pine, you get a stable, beautiful natural wood product that is ideally suited to our local environment. Take a look around our website to see some of the stunning projects we have completed with this versatile wood.

Archadeck of Columbus chosen for Cougar 100

PrintI grew up in an Ohio State Buckeye family and never miss a chance to put on my scarlet and gray and take my boys to a game. But I have another allegiance to the University of Houston. I met my lovely wife Carol there and wouldn’t trade my time at the University of Houston for the world. That’s why we were both thrilled to find out that Archadeck of Columbus has been chosen as one of the companies in University of Houston’s first ever “Cougar 100” list.

The Cougar 100 celebrates the top 100 fastest Cougar-owned or Cougar-led businesses in the country. The University of Houston has a number of very strong academic programs and is rightfully Cougar100proud of the more than 4,000 companies worldwide that are owned or led by its graduates. It’s very exciting for me (and Carol and the rest of the Archadeck of Columbus staff) to be named to the top tier of such an esteemed group.

More importantly, this award has given me pause to reflect on the success that my wife Carol and I have had here in Columbus. When I returned to Central Ohio after being away for a decade or so, it was almost like I had never left. As with most small businesses, I got started with the help of friends, family and neighbors. We continued to build and grow with the help of generous customer references and a business community that fights back hard when it meets tough challenges. I appreciate everyone’s support and I thank you all for helping us achieve this honor.

Many of our projects our multi-faceted and combine different elements, this takes precision and planning to bring these elements together properly.

Creating one-of-a-kind outdoor living spaces is a complex business. It is also a business that requires an immense amount of organization to ensure every project is executed in a timely, efficient manner. Here at Archadeck of Columbus, we use the latest technology to provide the absolute best home construction experience for all our customers. One of the benefits of owning an Archadeck franchise is having many best practice systems in place. We are able to utilize the newest technology coming to the forefront of the business. With this in mind, we have been searching through different applications which can help us manage a job more efficiently. The application we found and developed two years ago is great — it is called Smart Sheet.

Archadeck of Columbus Smart Sheet technology on Ipad

Smart Sheet technology allows all team member to stay up to the minute with each of our projects.

Smart Sheet allows us the freedom of being web-based. In addition we can place anything in a particular file which is easily accessible to other members of our team at any time. This allows us to see where they are and it also makes it easy for our project managers to stay up to the minute on the progress of any given project. It also assists us in communicating the steps necessary to project completion. For example; contacting the utility company, verifying deliveries, coordinating inspections, reminders on special orders & evaluating lead times on special orders, and coordinating with subcontractors such as roofers and electricians.

As an owner, this system allows me to manage at a quick glance. On average we are managing over 70 projects a year, with each project taking an average of 1.5  to 2 weeks. On average, each of these projects has over 100 checklists. Smart Sheet has a checklist format so we can check off items that need to be completed prior, during and post completion. This technology helps me organize the number of jobs we have going at any given moment, and keep up with the fast pace required to keep everyone smiling. It has allowed us to become much more efficient than we ever imagined.

Our system ensures each phase of your project is done on time.

Our system ensures each phase of your project is done on time.

Most of our customers don’t understand what a construction company goes through and the complexity of the process itself. It stands to reason if a company is more organized, and has a streamlined process it will run more efficiently and the customer will reap the benefits. Other builders just don’t use this type of precision when it comes to project management. This explains much of the discontent felt by homeowners because their project was not finished on time, or it was managed poorly during construction. There is much that can be overlooked with builders that don’t use systems such as ours. Our system ensures even the smallest details are scheduled and overseen properly– and the customer gains from this technology as much as we do.

We are so proud that this tool has allowed us to streamline our efficiency practices. Our project managers are happy, our team is happy and most of all our customers are happier because of our smooth production schedule. As we look into the future, our hope is to extend this technology and take it a step further by being able to use email to allow the homeowner to log-in and view the planning details for their particular project. Customers won’t manage their job, but will be able to see what is going on and when, in real-time. In this business, there is a lot of transparency in this area but we want to break down the barriers and get the customer involved and excited about being part of their building experience!

Pardon our dust: Archadeck of Columbus aims to make construction a kinder experience

proper_deck_sub_structure_lr

The path to outdoor living bliss is fraught with noise and dust!

Customers always ask us how much interference the construction of their project will cause. This covers all aspects of disruption from personally and in respect to their lawn. My answer to this question is with any type of construction, home improvement or remodeling project interference is inevitable. Depending on the type of project and the specifics involved in excavation will determine how much damage to your turf will occur. The amount of time a project takes to complete and the weather conditions also play a huge role in damage to the turf. In regards to personal disruptions during your project:  noise is something that is hard to avoid and will be a factor in having your project completed in a timely fashion. The type of equipment we have to use such as drills, power saws and hammers don’t have a quiet mode, we quite often wish they came with a volume control feature as well!

We go the extra mile to try to make the disruption minimal and we work around our client's schedules.

We go the extra mile to try to make the disruption minimal and we work around our client’s schedules.

One of the most important assets of working with a good company is that we recognize the disruption projects cause. We go the extra mile to try to make the disruption minimal and we work around our client’s schedules. We are also more conscious of homeowners that work from their homes. We realize that your home is your castle, and our crews exercise the utmost respect and are dedicated to taking care of every aspect of your home to make the construction process as minimall invasive as possible.

Our goal is to deliver a breathtaking outdoor space with minimal interference during construction.

Archadeck of Columbus’ project standards make the construction process a kinder experience:

When loading and unloading materials we strive to establish a traffic flow that will create the least amount of impact and disturbance on your property. This includes using a one-way route around your house during the course of a job to minimize disruption of turf. We understand the need for heavy equipment and materials on your project and may even use wagons or wheel barrels to move materials to the area they need to be. We try to avoid the use of heavier excavation machinery and will only use smaller scale versions if the project absolutely depends on it, such as a mini Bobcat or skid steer.

Our climate can lend itself to some really wet seasons, but there is nothing that will keep us from building your project within a wet year. Don’t let the weather be a deterrent because the sales process will take some time and we do everything within our power to avoid disruptions caused by weather conditions. If the ground is thawing from freezing conditions or is very wet we have a heightened conscience about the conditions of our customer’s lawns and will put down plywood between the material and jobsite to minimize turf damage and avoid rutting.  In summary, during the time we have been in business we have only had to repair two (2) lawns due to damage incurred by inclement weather conditions during the construction process. By taking a proactive approach with these actions, 99% of yards will quickly recover in a month or so.

Sweeping Up

Daily cleanup is protocol on all our outdoor living space projects.

Our project standards are also visible on the inside of our projects. Daily cleanup is protocol. We carry 50 gallon trash cans so when there is waste we remove it daily to avoid an unsafe or unkempt looking jobsite. In addition, we also use caution tape during construction when it is unsafe to traverse an area under construction. Obviously, dust is an issue with many of our outdoor living structure additions. This is especially the case when we use a partner saw to cut concrete pavers during patio installations. In these “dusty” situations we often post a “pardon our dust” sign to help warn (and apologize) to neighbors that are adjacent to your project.
