When you contract for a multi structure outdoor living space like a deck/patio combination or an addition like a Columbus sunroom, you will have tradesmen from a variety of building specialties involved in making your dream a reality. Coordinating the efforts this army of skilled workers is a large part of the general contractor’s job. Many contractors will “sub-out” or hire independent subcontractors for most of the different parts of their jobs. At Archadeck of Columbus, we have a professional team of in-house specialists who handle a majority of the work on all of our projects.

It’s easy to understand why many contractors work with so many different subcontractors. As the economy has improved over the last few years, building projects have generally increased in size, scope, and level of specialization, including the introduction of many new amenities and materials. Decking, pavers, and electrical components are just a few of the areas that have all changed dramatically in the last decade. It’s challenging to keep up with those technological advances and invest in the continuing education necessary to stay at the top of your trade.

When I started this business more than 10 years ago, we were a deck and screened porch company. We have since expanded our range of expertise to include the many wonderful kinds of spaces you see illustrated on our web site. To maintain our uncompromising level of quality, Archadeck has its own carpenters and masons on staff who build all projects to our national specifications, using our unified structural system. While your design is custom, the standards are not— projects are built the same way across the country.  Whether you are interested in a deck/patio/landscaping job or adding a porch/patio/pergola combination, we either have the skills in-house or longstanding partnerships in place to quickly and professionally design and build the Columbus outdoor living space you’ve always wanted.

As specialists ourselves, we know what components of our jobs require another specialist. For some tasks, you want a specialist that does that particular function all day long every single day. For example, if your project includes wiring for lights, fans, or other electrical specifications, you will probably meet the electrician we partner with – James Hartley. We rely on Joe Hughes Roofing to top all of our porch and 3-season room jobs. Alex De la Paz at New Image Irrigation plays a big role in many of our landscaping projects. When it’s time to put the finishing touch of a coat of new paint on interior walls, it will likely be John Carter who will arrive promptly with ladders, brushes, and a smile.

We believe this approach to building projects ensures consistently high quality for our clients. Each of our partners is an expert in their field and we have built a relationship on mutual trust and reliability. We respect the work they do and won’t ask them to be part of a project that would compromise their professionalism. They always give us their best product because, in addition to their professional pride, they value their relationship with Archadeck. This collaboration is a win-win-win because together we are able to give our customers exactly what they want.

I began my association with Archadeck in 2001 when I was working for a subcontractor that Archadeck of Columbus was employing for patio installations. I had been working in the Landscape/Hardscape industry for quite a few years at the time and immediately noticed a difference in how Archadeck operated in comparison with other deck companies that we worked with. Over the years of working with Archadeck on numerous projects, large and small, I came to realize the importance of what they were selling; beautiful designs, top-notch craftsmanship and a world class customer experience. This is what drove me to start working for Archadeck in January of 2011 and eventually buying the company in 2016. My wife, Amber, and my son, Logan, could not be happier to be a part of such a wonderful organization. We look forward to the future as we build the outdoor living environments our customers dream of with the “world class” service they deserve!
