To all our Existing Clients, New Clients and Potential Clients,
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy during this COVID-19 Pandemic. For those affected, we wish you the speediest recovery.
We wanted to reach out and let you know we are learning to work remotely while following the CDC guidelines and the Governor’s orders. We will be hosting remote meetings and teleconferencing, and where possible we will be working remotely with the building offices and inspectors to keep your projects moving forward as best we can in this difficult time.
To our Existing Clients – Our Governor, Jay Inslee has ordered that Residential Construction must stop during the quarantine. We are available for emergency issues, but otherwise we have shut down all construction at this time. We will be contacting you to provide updates as we learn more, and we’ll be back in the field to complete your project as soon as we are allowed.
To our New Clients – We are still working remotely on your engineering drawings, site plans, permit applications and other background work, so we have the best leg up to complete your projects when the lockdown lifts. Much of what we can do is dependent on your municipality and the availability of your Building Office during the lockdown. The situation is very fluid with each city doing their own thing. But we are working with them as well as possible, and we will keep you updated with our progress.
To our Potential Customers – It is our policy to provide potential clients with a complete “start-to-finish” bid on your outdoor living space project. Unfortunately under the current circumstances, we are not allowed to visit your home in person. Therefore, we are changing our process during the lockdown and providing estimates based on the information that you can provide to us such as photos of your outdoor space, measurements and a description of the project you’re interested in. We are setting up guidelines and remote presentation software so we can teleconference with you, to learn your needs and help plan the best solution for your project. We won’t remotely confirm the safety of your structure, for example, but we can talk through any of your concerns, provide advice and offer design and process guidance.
Once the quarantine lifts, I believe we will see a massive surge in construction as City Building Offices, Contractors and Supply Yards will all be buried in a backlog of demand. We are working to stay in front of this. We will be as ready as possible with our work planned out front and our permit and materials orders in the best shape possible. We will work to maintain or increase our communications during this difficult time.
We appreciate your patience as we all learn how to work and live in this new situation. Like no other time in memory, we really are all in this together. We wish you all the best, with continued good health to you and yours.
~ Aaron Smith and the Seattle NW Archadeck Team
We deliver the service and community commitment of a local, family-owned business backed by the strength of a company that’s built 125,000 incredible outdoor structures since 1980. We offer you the benefit of an international architectural design center that will custom design your project to complement your home, suit your personal tastes and meet your exact needs for functionality.
We invite you to call for a free design consultation (and/or a free deck safety inspection if you happen to own an existing deck). At your consultation we’ll show you past projects, discuss your needs and tastes, explain your construction material options (including the new, low-maintenance wood alternatives), talk about costs, and measure and photograph your home/lot.
The design consultation is completely free and you are under no obligation to hire Archadeck. Should you decide to move forward after your free design consultation, we will custom design your building plan. You will still not be under any obligation to hire us as your builder until you approve your plan and sign your contract.
Of course, once you do sign that contract, you will be protected by two separate guarantees, constituting the most expansive customer protection plan in the industry. And local oversight assures your property and privacy are respected. We attend to every detail from securing any needed building permits to final cleanup. And we work very hard to be as unobtrusive as possible during the entire construction phase.
Thank you for considering Archadeck for your project. We hope to hear from you soon.
