Do you install or design with stamped concrete?
No, we only design and build with pavers from Belgard. Pavers are more durable and provide a more unique style of patio.
Do we need permits for building a patio?
No permits are needed, unless we have to design for water management or impervious surfaces.
Do you build with wood for the decking?
Your deck flooring will be built with composite decking from the TimberTech Azek brand to provide you with a maintenance free high performing finish.
Do I have to replace my existing deck structure, and can I just resurface my deck?
When you are investing in the TimberTech Azek products for decking, fascia's, and railings we want to make sure we build you a high performing structure underneath. Your new framing lumber is going to be a premium #1 grade. It will need to include many design and structure elements to it, which will not be able to be met when reusing an older structure. We also need to make sure the footers are up to date, and make sure the area where your deck attaches to the house is weatherproofed correctly and has no existing water damage. Codes and material engineering specifications update every few years and your decks needs to be current and correct for long term enjoyment and safety.
Do you charge to come out and look at our space and give us ideas?
Yes, we do have consultation fees and those fees are applied towards your project when you contract with us. There are many elements to go over from how we can design everything out, to the product choices for each unique project. Our time on-site can be up to 2 hours and will give you a full understanding of what we can do for you and realistic project expectations.
Does it cost for a design?
Yes, we do have design fees when we provide you with a 2D or 3D design and those fees are established with the size and how complex the project is.
How much should we budget for on my project?
Every project will have its own elements to budget for and it is important to have an idea of how much you want to invest into your backyard renovation. As a design and build company we want to make sure we have an idea on what that budget is so we can design your space to fit around that budget. If you are not sure of what to budget for, that is fine, we can go over some realistic costs during our initial phone consultation.
