To Start Off on the Right Foot, Share Your Budget with Your Archadeck Design Consultant

At Archadeck of Columbus, we want to take the mystery out of designing an outdoor living project that fits within your budget. Your budget is the primary factor in determining the size and complexity of your project – and the materials available to build it.

We understand it’s difficult for homeowners to shop for a Columbus deck builder when your primary concern is price. At Archadeck of Columbus, the question we often hear is, “How much is this going to set me back?”

Share Your Budget with Your Archadeck Design Consultant

“How much will I need to invest to get the outdoor living enjoyment my family is looking for?” In an ideal world – one in which cost is not the primary concern – this might be a constructive way to rephrase the question.

A Relationship of Trust is Essential to Archadeck’s Design-and-Build Process

In the real world, cost matters. We know that. You’re looking for an outdoor living project you can enjoy and afford. The reality is that we can better design the project you can afford if we know your budget.

Many homeowners hesitate to reveal their budget to a contractor. You’re likely speaking with someone you’ve just met. You’ve heard stories about contractors who have taken advantage of clients. You’re afraid if we know your budget, we’ll increase the price without expanding the scope of the project.

With Archadeck, the opposite is true. If your budget is higher than you initially disclose, that can give you the option of increasing the scope of your project. We won’t raise our rates if we find out your budget is higher than initially expressed.

How Your Budget Affects Our Price Quote

An outdoor living project includes many variables. If your budget is relatively low, we are going to create a design for you featuring the most affordable materials. If you have room in your budget for top-of-the-line low-maintenance decking, we can design a low-maintenance project for you. But only if that’s what you want.

Every project is different. Archadeck of Columbus custom designs each outdoor living project based on the client’s needs and preferences and the specifics of their property. We will ask lots of questions and spend the time it takes to understand your needs. We call this conversation “a comprehensive needs analysis,” and it helps us identify exactly what you’re looking for.

How would you describe the kind of outdoor living space you want? How do you intend to use your deck, porch, patio, 3-season room, or sunroom? And yes, your budget is a factor because it tells us what materials will be within reach for your project. Our design goal is to address your needs while staying within your budget.

When You Might Want to Consider Financing Your Outdoor Living Project

If you have your heart set on a deck or other project that’s significantly outside your budget, you may want to consider financing the project. Have you been comfortable financing other purchases such as a car, boat, or home appliance? If so, would you be comfortable financing your outdoor living project? Archadeck of Columbus refers potential clients to a finance company that we trust and recommend. This approach allows you to enjoy your ideal screened porch or three-season room while paying for it over time. We will never push you into financing. We simply let you know the option to finance is available.

Let Archadeck of Columbus open the door to your outdoor living imagination

If you were given the chance to build the ultimate dream backyard in your backyard where would you begin? Archadeck of Columbus is proud to be part of the 2013 Archadeck dream backyard makeover contest where one lucky homeowner will win a dream backyard built by Archadeck and valued at up to $70,000. To enter, contestants have to submit a description of what their dream backyard would be. To help envision your dream backyard to enter the contest, here are some ideas for you.

This Columbus, OH backyard has it all, TimberTech double decks, a screened porch and hardscape patio.

Maybe your outdoor dream begins with a large porch. The porch can be screened, open or covered depending on how you want to live on your porch. Both covered and screened porches are great for adding living and dining areas to your outdoor space. With screened porches you get the added luxury of protection from insects and inclement weather. And, they can function much like an outdoor room. When you imagine your “dream porch” what type of roof does it have? Gable and hip roofs are among the most popular choices, but many times a shed roof can work great too. You roof style will depend highly on how the porch will connect to your home. Porches can be attached using either sidewall or roof tie-in connections and your roof style will be one key consideration in determining this. It is also possible to build a detached porch that functions much like a cabana, or pavilion. When envisioning your outdoor oasis it is also important to consider the orientation of the sun within your backyard. The location of the sun may mean a shaded structure such as a covered porch, or pergola would make the most sense and bring you the most enjoyment.

This Columbus TimberTech deck includes built in seating, and a custom fire pit proving that the details make the difference.

Your dream porch could spill into a rustic hardscape patio, maybe even a patio with a fire pit and seating wall. Hardscape features like seating, columns, and retaining walls can balance your outdoor space and finish them out to give you a more custom look. You may even consider a hardscape patio that has a little elevation to it so that you may step down into your backyard from the patio. Remember that it always the little things that can turn a good design into a great one when it comes to outdoor living structures.

Custom amenities like ceiling fans, lighting, and even wiring your outdoor space with speakers will enable you to further your outdoor enjoyment. Decks are always a solid choice for enhancing your backyard bliss. Adding features like planters, benches or even an outdoor kitchen to your deck will enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your dream backyard. TimberTech has a deck designing page on their website that allows you to design your TimberTech deck by mixing  their vast selection of color combinations of decking and railing to come up with the perfect deck to suit any taste.
