Spring Home Show Observations…from a Charlotte Deck and Screen Porch Builder

Archadeck of Charlotte designed and built this deck and pergola

As the owner of Archadeck of Charlotte, we have participated in at least 2 – 3 home shows annually for over 20 years now. We just completed our big spring home and garden show and stepped up our presence with 3 different booths. One was a booth for decks and porches, one was for patio’s, outdoor fireplaces, and outdoor kitchens, and one for awnings.  We had over 100 leads where people either asked for an appointment on the spot or at least for us to call when we get back to  our office. This is an amazing result in this economy. People are staying in their homes longer and remodeling them the way they want to now. A few observations from many recent conversations with people at the show….1. “we are told we need to get 3 estimates”  2. “do you have any deals right now” 3. “how much will you take off if I pay in cash”….what are the commonalities in these statements? People are shopping more and getting less unfortunately. We have been called back too many times by people who thought they got a “deal” and instead got poor workmanship or worse yet a contractor who could not complete the project!
