We have all heard the old sayings of “you get what you pay for” and “haste makes waste.” These ring true in many situations we encounter including choosing a builder for your new outdoor structure project. It is wise to explore your options and research any prospective builder by looking at their reviews, and perusing their portfolio of completed projects, however, it is also smart to be cautious about the builder that quickly brings the lowest price to the table and is ready to begin your project on a moment’s notice.
Keep in mind, that seasoned builders know what it takes structurally to ensure your safety and satisfaction. They also rarely have no pending projects on their backlogs to begin a project at the spur of the moment, securing proper permits and making sure quality materials to complete your project are all on hand takes a little time. Be very wary of those builders that claim they can start on a dime, chances are they aren’t pulling required permits necessary to even break ground. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and a professionally designed and built outdoor living structure shouldn’t be either. The impetus here is to realize that if a builder is ready to break ground immediately on your project chances are their services are not in high demand. This can be a direct reflection of their business practices and quality of work.
Over the 30+ years we have been serving the Nashville area, we have seen, and repaired, many projects where the homeowner hastily hired a builder just to get the project completed quickly. Not only where many of these structures dangerous, they usually resulted in the homeowner spending more to make it right than they would have had they hired us initially.
Another aspect to consider before you rush into your project, are the builder’s credentials… does the builder have a license or even insurance? These may seem trivial but are crucial if something goes wrong while the builder, or crew, is injured or has an accident while working on your property.
— When choosing a contractor for your deck or porch, beware of the tail light warranty!
Last but certainly not least is to beware of the builder that only offers what is referred to as the tail light warranty — in essence, this means the warranty extends about as long as the tail lights are visible as he is leaving your project — funny to joke about, but not so much if you are the one watching them fade into the distance.
