The Importance Of Choosing A Professional

Your Local Custom Deck Design and Building Company!


Archadeck of Central Georgia advises Macon and Warner Robins-area homeowners to be cautious when selecting a company to design and build your new deck. Not everyone who can nail two boards together will qualify as a legitimate deck builder. And, not everyone who can build a deck has the high standards, professional business practices, and quality workmanship you get with Archadeck as your deck builder and design company.

What’s the difference between a deck builder and a deck builder and design company?

There is a difference between Archadeck and other local deck builders, and we call it “the Archadeck difference.” Archadeck of Central GA is a professional deck design and build company. To us, the process of designing a high-quality deck is as important as building it.

Designing an outdoor living structure requires knowledge of building materials, an understanding of spatial requirements, and familiarity with local building codes. We focus attention on the design to make sure that when we reach the building phase, we have everything we need, including the building permits and any HOA approvals. Careful design and planning reduces the likelihood that we’ll encounter unnecessary delays during the building phase.

If you use a contractor who knows how to build but doesn’t understand the importance of design, your deck will probably not be as sturdy or as functional as if we had designed and built it. How do we know this? We have been called in to rebuild or replace decks that were designed poorly. A poorly designed deck is not going to last as long as a well-designed deck. Flaws in the design can also lead to structural deficiencies.

What do you gain by using a professional deck design and build company?


Answer — a lot!

You might think, but it’s just a deck – until you take a good look at the decks in our photo galleries. Whether you’re interested in a wooden deck or a wood alternative – such as composite or PVC – having it professionally designed and built gives you an advantage in several respects.

Professionalism and customer service

At Archadeck of Central GA, we respect your time. We arrive on time for our meetings with you. We return your phone calls. Many clients are surprised by this because they’ve had the opposite experience with other builders. This is just the way we do business, with integrity and thoughtfulness.

Our experience shows!


We’ve been designing and building high-quality decks in Central Georgia since 1991. We have extensive experience with composite and synthetic decking as well as wood decks – and we also have deep experience in building porches, 3-season rooms, sunrooms, outdoor living combinations and much more. We keep up-to-date on preferred installation techniques for the leading composite and synthetic/PVC decking brands. With Archadeck building your project, we will not make costly mistakes that could void your manufacturer’s warranty on materials.

You get a custom deck and design every time

Each of our decks is designed for a specific client’s home. All decisions about materials are based on the homeowner’s preferences and budget. The size and shape of your deck are specific to your site and guided by the way you intend to use your deck. To make sure you get the perfect deck for your home and your lifestyle, we really listen to you describe what you want in a deck, and we ask questions. We call this process a comprehensive needs analysis. No other builder will give you a better custom deck and design experience. The success of this process is evident in our customer reviews.

Careful attention to tried-and-true processes


Process is important to us. For this reason we follow specific steps throughout the designing and building of your deck for planning and then monitoring construction. We use checklists to make sure we follow our processes in the proper order. It’s not just paperwork or busywork. These processes increase efficiency and result in consistently high-quality work.

Attention to detail: A deck builder vs a construction crew

A deck builder’s attention to detail (or lack of it) can make or break the appearance and safety of your deck. For that reason, attention to detail is built into Archadeck’s processes. Sloppy work is not acceptable to us, and we require our sub-contractors to meet that high standard, too. When we meet with you for a deck design consultation, we can point out specific examples of our attention to detail in photos of our projects.

When we say, a deck builder vs a construction crew, we don’t mean to diminish the importance of a good construction crew. We hire skilled construction crews to carry out the plans we have made with you during the design phase of your deck. However, that is different from you hiring a crew – a carpenter and their helpers – to build your deck. The difference is in the details.

Warranties and protection


Archadeck gives you warranties, in writing, that your deck will be built correctly. Your deck will be covered by a 1-year warranty for workmanship and a 5-year warranty for structural integrity. We also provide a completion guarantee. If we were to go out of business, another Archadeck location would step in and complete your project according to your contract’s specifications. You won’t get this kind of warranty from another deck contractor.

We also carry liability insurance and workers comp insurance to protect you from financial exposure in the event of any accidents on the job site. This assurance ties back into our promise of professionalism. If you interview other deck builders as well, be certain to ask them for proof of insurance coverage. A reputable contractor will not be offended.
