Archadeck of Central GA and our crews
When I bought the business in 1999, three crews came along with the business. One of these crews did not work out immediately. They were taking too long to get the projects completed.
The remaining crews went on to do their own thing shortly after I purchased the business. So I was looking at being without a crew. I asked our bookkeeper (who had dealt with every construction crew in the area) whom she felt the best two crews in town were. I was able to hire those two crews (Jay & Mike) and they have been with me for over twelve years now.
Our 1st crew consists of a father/son team that have worked together since the son was 9 years old. His son, Zeke would come out and help Jay, his Dad and learn valuable knowledge of the trade. That same son is all grown up now and will soon be starting his own crew. Jay’s other son Jason is also part of this crew. Jay can build practically anything in the back yard. He specializes in decks and porches and also builds our paver patios. Jay is very organized, keeps his work site super clean and is very fast.
Our 2nd crew is managed by Mike who is excellent at building decks and porches. Mike is also talented with aluminum porches and aluminum work. For aluminum porches, pergolas, and anything that needs fabrication like welding, Mike is the man. Mike is also very people oriented and our customers love him.
The reality of being an outdoor structure builder is when you are trying to put together an experienced crew, the nature of the trade attracts people who can only work well in temporary type basis. Since construction is a temporary type work, finding the right people can be a hit or miss situation. There is a reason why people look for short time employment and it typically is because they have challenges in their lives. Many times in this trade you can hire someone who has some experience and you may get lucky and get them when they’re doing well. But you might also get unlucky and get them when they’re not doing well. Finding the right individuals to make up a good crew can become like playing a game of Russian roulette. Archadeck of Central GA is fortunate to have two fine-tuned crews. When you decide to use us to create your outdoor living space, you get the peace of mind in knowing you are getting a knowledgeable, experienced team that resembles a family unit.
Having this unified team is a benefit to our customers for several reasons.
- We know each other and how each of us work. Lines of communication are open so the projects work very smoothly. There’s no learning curve
- These guys specialize in doing Archadeck construction and they know things like span charts, footing sizes, etc. so they don’t need to look them up.
- Because they’re used to working in people’s back yards, they understand they are not working on a work site where nobody’s living. They are clean cut, they clean up when done, and don’t throw trash.
- Our crews have a proven track record because they’ve been doing this so long
- Our crews are stable since they’ve been with us a long time. They’re not going to end up in jail and will not come to work under any influence.
