Updating your home’s look with exterior design and decks can be a real challenge. You want to make sure it will enhance your existing architecture. And finding just the right metro Atlanta residential remodeler who specializes in exterior design and decks, understands your thoughts, offers good suggestions and completes the project on time and on budget is critical. Do your homework. Find out what your ROI (return on investment) will be. For example, installing new siding will return approx. 92.8% (according to Remodeling’s Cost vs. Value report).
For homeowners interested in using exterior design and decks to redesign their backyard, choosing an experienced, credentialed professional is the first and biggest challenge they will face, according to Dave Tibbetts, president of Atlanta Deck and Fence Co., based in Cumming and one of the fastest growing outdoor room designers in the southeast.
“Using an exterior designer opens a whole new world—because he or she can actually create a ‘wow’ factor beyond any homeowner’s imagination,” Tibbetts says. “Since this is a sizable investment that will dramatically impact your home you may have to do some homework to find the best person for your project.”
Controlled chaos usually surrounds the average contractor. Many of these individuals operate as the craftsperson, the receptionist, the bookkeeper, the delivery person, etc. – and often at the same time. Cell phones further cause deception as they allow he or she to multi-task and get distracted from the work at hand. If there is a problem at some other location there’s a good chance you’ll get stood up.
Yet if you do your homework, you will find an exterior design and deck specialist who cares about your project, takes pride in his/her work, and has the accountability of a skilled businessperson. Tibbetts offers these tips when selecting a contractor:
