start your dream
The process begins here...
The first step is for you to call, email, or text about a professionally built deck, porch, railing, or pergola. Our process will provide you with a free no cost estimate and price quotation. The more information you have available, the more accurate our estimate will be. If you can stand back in your yard and take a couple pictures of the area where the project will be and send it to us, it can really expedite the estimation process. We can also schedule a time to have you come into the showroom and see the latest decking materials and talk with someone in person.
- The cost to disassemble and haul away your old deck.
- What the costs are to replace the structure of the deck to meet the current building codes, as well as if can the existing structure be modified to allow its continued use.
- The different decking materials options, what the costs are for your project, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
- What the different handrail options are, what will work best, and what the costs for your project will be.
- Post wraps, porch roofs, accent lighting, under deck waterproofing, and other options and accessories.
- Show you photos of previous projects similar in scale, materials, and colors
- Advise you on local regulations about easements, boundary setback’s etc.), and building codes.
Upon your approval of the preliminary estimate, we can also set up a time for a visit to our showroom to look at all the choices of materials in person for your project.
Regardless if we are the ones doing the installation, we are happy to provide you with a quote on the materials package for your project.
The next step is for us to come out to your property and verify the measurements, job scope, any special site specific conditions, and perform an in depth cost analysis. We then make custom 3D designs, as well as all necessary detailed drawings. This allows us to specify all the items necessary to provide our clients with an exact bid along with a detailed proposal. The fee for this service is $299.00. If we are awarded the job, the fee is deducted from the contract price.
We believe estimates are meaningless, if they are based on vague or hypothetical criteria. Detailed proposals benefit everyone by reducing uncertainty, and we believe no one should sign a contract without knowing exactly what they are getting.
With your feedback, we are able to then quickly modify the designs and drawings to achieve the exact look and function to best fit your property and lifestyle.
Following the presentation of the design and discussion on time frames and fees, a fixed price contract with all the accompanying documents are now prepared ready for your approval.
After your approval, a contract is prepared for signing. Deckadent Designs’ over 25 years experience in project management makes it simple. We take care of your project from inception to completion, including necessary documents, permits and inspections, and insurance.
Your payments are scheduled into stages.
- We do not require deposits. You pay for the materials’ cost of the project only once the materials arrive on your property
- Payments progress in line with completed construction stages and inspection approvals
- Final 25% payment is not due until substantial completion
Sit back, relax and watch your new project come to life.
Upon completion, Deckandent Designs will remove all waste materials and construction debris.
If required, the local government will conduct the final inspection and issue a certificate of occupancy.
Your new outdoor living space is now complete and ready for years of enjoyment.
