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.
