You see, as word of mouth is the best advertising. From one homeowner to another we know the greatest investment homeowners will make is their home and we are here to protect that investment for you.
Don’t be caught up in the circus here in the tri-state! Make sure you do your homework on the contractor you hire for your home improvement needs.
Don’t get us wrong there are other good deck builders here in tri-state other than ourselves, but we have visited homeowners that just paid the ultimate price and looking for resolutions to fix the unsatisfactory work, or the contractor ran off with their money, incomplete work or simply incompetent to make it right.
Sad but true: Anyone can throw a toolbox in the back of their truck and call themselves a deck builder.
Make sure to ask all the right questions when obtaining a bid so you don’t get charged more than you should! The only extras you should get from any contractor would be unforeseen underlying problems and not a surprise charge either…. This should be an upfront agreement that you and the contractor are both aware of before the project starts.
We take pride in a full and complete bid for your project and making your experience with us a “Stress-Free Experience”
We do recommend going with a composite deck simply for peace of mind that it is maintenance free (if your budget allows it). After years of working with both wood and composite we have run the numbers on the upfront cost of composite verses wood.
Wood is a cheaper upfront cost, but in long term you will save money with a composite deck because you won’t have the costs it takes to maintain a wood deck for the next 20-years. Today’s wood decking isn’t like it was 15-years ago and today’s composite isn’t like it was 20-years ago.
Today’s composite has come such a long way in technology that they are now offering amazing 25-year all the way up to lifetime warranties!
We believe in using the highest quality materials such as Fiberon, Azek, Timbertech, Decorators, Trex among other top brands. All structure unless noted otherwise (Metal) #1 ground contact pressure treated lumber.
At the end of the day Building Character is a local, family owned business striving to build a one on
one relationship with you, our customer. At the end of the day, yes, we are here to make a living to provide for our families but also as we walk away after a hard day’s work to see what we have accomplished and the relationships that we made humbles us in gratitude.
Our team is respectful, conscious and delightful to work with. For your initial estimate you will have “The Boss” Aka Jennifer Riddell (which is far better looking than the rest of us) come to your home to go over designs, colors and needs with you.
Meanwhile engineering, estimate takeoffs, scheduling and installs will be going on behind the scenes with our blessed team…. we will build your outdoor living to last and make memories!
