Our Bidding Process
West Coast Decks offers custom deck design and deck construction services.
If you would like us to come out and give you personalized deck design
estimate, the process if as follows:
One of our estimators will visit your home. Weekend and evening bid times
are available, however these times fill up fast so please try to allow
1-2 weeks to schedule a bid. Bid times during regular working hours are
much easier to schedule.
We will be asking you for your thoughts and ideas regarding your new deck
project. We will be measuring your house and the proposed area for the
deck. We will give you our input as to what will work the best for your
home and yard areas. While at your home, our estimator will try to give
you a “ballpark” price or range of pricing for your deck project.
If this price range is acceptable for you, we will provide a custom deck
design line drawing (proposed plan) of the new deck to you usually within 1 week.
If you are able to commit to West Coast Decks as your deck contractor,
we will then try to “fine tune” the deck design to meet all
your guidelines. We will revise your deck plan as many times as needed
to have the deck meet your budget and space requirements. A written contract
will be provided outlining all the specifications and pricing.
At the time you commit to have West Coast Decks to build your deck, you
will be given an approximate start date. As your start date nears, we
will be contacting you to pin down the exact start date. You will also
be told approximately how long the deck project will take.
A material deposit will be taken on the day material is delivered and your
deck project is begun. Final payment will be due upon completion of your
project and contingent upon your complete satisfaction.
Long term care and maintenance instructions for your new deck will be given
after the project has been completed. We are always available to answer
any care and maintenance questions in the future.
