A Disappointing Experience - Do some shopping around first!! – I recently had a deck built by Archadeck (July 2006). I choose this company over several other companies that I got quotes from based on reputation alone. They have a very good reputation, but have a little trouble living up to it.
* They had trouble meeting their scheduled timeframe. I realize at the time the project was to begin, we had some rain - but it took them an additional 2 weeks to get started. They finally started the project on 6/6/06 and completed it on 7/31/06.
* The workers would tell me that they would be there and not show up when they said they would. Sometimes I would get a call saying they weren't coming, sometimes I wouldn't (more often not).
* They left my backyard littered with soda bottles and cigarette butts on a regular basis.
* The salesman didn't know the product very well, or he would have given better suggestions.
* The billing clerk attempted to bill final payment before the final inspection was completed.
2 biggest issues:
They just completed this project and already there is a high degree of wood shrinkage. I realize that this is wood and it will expand and contract. Their partner/owner stated that this was common because of it being in direct sunlight. If this was the case, the salesman should have warned me about this and I would have spent the extra $2000 and had the composite installed, or I would have gone with a covered deck.
Big issue 2 is the time schedule/cost vs design of the deck. I had a simple design; 20' by 15' platform off the back of my house. Simple enough, well this simple project took 46 days to complete and cost about $6050.
Their workers and staff are friendly.
The partner/owner seems to really care about the reputation of the product.
In retrospect, I believe that I would have gone a different direction with this project.
