Beautiful colorsAbout Your Outdoor Project

It is our earnest ambition to insure that our clients are of the most informed consumers.  We will begin our initial service with answers to your questions by phone or e-mail and then to schedule an appointment whereby Philip or Paul will come to your residence to assist you in the design process for your deck, Patio Cover, Shade Arbor or any type of patio project. Diverse engineeringAt this site meeting, discussions will take place concerning functional uses, your family size (who is using the product on a daily basis) and their life patterns, the 2018 IRC and IBC building code requirements, the possible restrictions as well as the budgetary and style issues that may affect your projects future design, size, shape and aesthetics.

We will be able to deliver an accurate ball park figure at the time of the estimate, however the actual quoted price shall be determined at our office after thorough examination of all the details and with our computer aided database systems and a lumber market confirmation. This database is designed to bid the materials and all of its components by the square foot, face foot or lineal footage according to the species of wood or type of finish desired. Taking into account the foundation costs and labor costs with a nominal profit margin. It is set up to give accurate material and labor costs for hundreds of options that are frequently requested, but also needs to be verified with standard market variations. The job site conditions, elevations, existing structural conditions and the landscaping will always have some bearing on the ease or difficulty of construction and will often effect the human aspect of the job and schedule.

The bid shall be faxed, e-mailed, mailed out (snail mail), hand delivered and or verbally Simple beautygiven at our earliest opportunity and in most cases within three or four business days of the estimate. The quote shall be comprised of a computer drawing, a proposal for the services - listing all the requested options, which is discounted for cash or check price, as well as a contract for services and a fax cover sheet explaining in great detail how to proceed with the process if you wish to move forward with the project. We require that you send us a copy of your site plan (Improvement Location Certificate is better) with the signed contract and initialed proposal; this could be a survey of any kind, a plot plan, site plan or an I.L.C. Please note that the cost of the permit, engineering and site plan (if one does not exist and we have to draw one for you; if possible) fees will be in addition to the cost of the total project costs that we have proposed and these cost updates will be sent  to you after the permit has been purchased from the Building and Zoning Department.

The process for our clients to get the project started is simple, please fax or email us a signed copy of the contract, an initialed proposal with the selected options clearly noted, a stamped site plan or I.L.C. and an initialed copy of the accepted project plan or drawing of the project for accuracy. You will then be contacted by one of our office personnel to determine the desired schedule for the construction and nail down any remaining details.

Different projects moves forward with different requirements

Please Note: If your project is a deck, Shade Arbor, Patio Cover or any other type of project requiring a building permit, we will need a copy of the Improvement Location Certificate - or a plot plan (which is usually located with the closing papers of your property) to submit your permit. If you have a problem locating these papers, please call your title company or Realtor, or check with the building department of the municipality in which you reside.

Within a couple days of the scheduled start of the project, a locating service will show up (free of charge) at your property to locate the gas, electrical, and other utilities. Please keep any dogs inside the house in order to give the locaters free access until the location services have been performed and the lines are clearly marked with paint dots and flags. This is a free service for public safety. The locater will mark the grass or other landscaping materials with a biodegradable paint and with flags (in certain weather conditions, both will be requested) which allows us to see the marks when snow is present. Please try to keep the flags in place until we first start work on the site. Any other private lines (from house to detached garage) will need marked by you.

Meanwhile, our field manager Jay will coordinate the materials and labor needs as our draftsman John will be submitting the documents necessary for the building and zoning permits when it is required. Please remember that the actual costs of building and zoning permits, I.L.C. of engineering fees shall be reimbursed by you, the homeowner, at the time of completion of the project when the other project moneys are collected. Unfortunately, it is too great of a challenge to estimate exactly how each governing municipality within the 40 cities and counties in which we work, shall assess and interpret the permit and zoning requirements. They can often vary slightly within the Building Departments and the Zoning Administrations depending on the structural requirements and the estimated project costs (valuation provided).

We will be ordering and delivering much more material and hardware than is actually necessary for your type of project, our experience tells us that the lumber yard will send a few pieces that do not meet our aesthetic or structural standards and that cannot be used on the project. These materials will be delivered to your house, placed in your driveway and will be banded together and protected from the weather when it is necessary, so please do not remove any type wraps, packaging or banding that is required to keep the materials in good shape. We will be returning all the extra materials that are left in the driveway at the end of a project, for when you contract a deck to be constructed, you are not purchasing materials, but the finished product.

A deck specialist shall layout, drill the caissons, pour concrete and set metal post anchors if the job calls for a structural foundation. Most municipalities require an inspection of these caisson holes. Note: the placement of caissons or concrete piers will create excess dirt around the drilling area and you should expect to allow for some removal, relocation or re-grading in and around this area. Landscape sprinklers cannot be pre-located because they are plastic and may get damaged when we dig the structural foundation; if this does occur; the costs of relocating, patching, splicing and the adjustment of sprinler lines or heads will be your (the homeowner) responsibility. This is also the perfect opportunity for you (or your agent) to place your landscape fabric or other ground cover for any future landscape projects if you so desired. We will remove the dirt from the caisson holes as a standard practice unless you specifically request beforehand that we leave the dirt for you to use somewhere else, or to fill in areas under the deck. Please remove any sod or grass, which you wish to re-use elsewhere before we start your project.

Award winning design

 

Denver Decks would like to enjoy the distinct privilege of placing a sign in your front yard for advertising and referral purposes while we are on site and until the work is completed and paid for, also having our signs on the trailers in front of your house and using the pictures of all stages of the construction as well as some times having future clients contact you to ask questions and to possibly even come to your house to see the quality finished products. If you have any objections to this, please notify our office (303-730-9642) of your stipulation at the time that the work order is first being placed so that we may perform our services according to your specific requests or other limitations.

Project materials shall be delivered in the driveway (not allowed in the right-of-way) on the side closest to the fence gate. So please remove all vehicles, which will be affected or inside the garage and place the on the street or any designated parking so that vehicles do not get trapped behind the materials, on the day that we commence work. The carpenters are scheduled to arrive between 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. to start work on any given day; with the exception of holidays and week ends. Our field managing team will deliver a tool, scrap or debris trailer to maintain a clean and safe project site. Depending on job conditions, you will be able to use only certain portions of the area around the construction project and you will be asked to refrain from using other areas near your new deck or structure for some time for public safety reasons.

All building inspections shall be performed by a building inspector between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. if a permit was required, so please leave the fence gates unlocked throughout the entire process during these hours and please leave all the paperwork affixed to the front door or window. Prior to the time of a collection on the job, the carpenter will let you know of his intended finish schedule, he will walk the project with you and collect the check when he is finished as you are please with all the finish details. All the unused new and used materials (out front in the driveway) as well as the debris on site are removed from the property by a Denver Decks, LLC representative. After the project is completely finished, this is the time at which you should start Gorgeous landscapingto plan the treatment of any exterior wood, caulk, paint, seal or to schedule a trained professional to satisfy any protective coating requirements that are necessary. For your greater benifit, the Cap-stock materials will not need any of this type of care - only cleaning and normal maintenence.

Please be sure to review your entire contract, the job drawing and the proposal provided to you thoroughly to know exactly what the responsibilities of each party are and to ask lots of questions if you are in any way unsure about anything pertaining to this process. If you have a question about anything - please contact the office by email or phone for more clarity. It is our greatest ambition to be available to serve your needs, as you make your questions known to us.
