Benefits of Finding and Hiring Gazebo / Outbuilding Builder Contractors

There are many benefits to adding a gazebo or outbuilding to your home. While you may want to do the work for yourself, but Perfection Decks and Pergolas gives many reasons why you should consider finding and hiring a gazebo or outbuilding contractor. 

  • Save Time: While it may seem that a gazebo should not take much time, doing it yourself could take you much more time than if you hired a contractor. Anytime you make a mistake, you spend twice as much time fixing those mistakes. Hiring a contractor allows you to spend that time doing what you love, not spending time building. 
  • Planning: While a gazebo or outbuilding may seem simple, planning is key. You have to make sure you have the space measured correctly and put the building in the right location. You cannot just put a gazebo anywhere. Well, you could, but it may not look the best it can. A contractor will make sure all the planning is done properly so you can love your gazebo for a long time. A contractor will not miss any details, but you might. 
  • Experience: A contractor has knowledge and experience that you simply do not have. A gazebo is a structure that needs to be secure and you want to make sure it is not going to fall down while anyone is in it. The landscape of your space also makes a difference in how the structure is built and any grading that needs to happen. A contractor is able to handle those scenarios properly. 
  • Design: At first glance, you may think a gazebo or outbuilding has a basic shape or structure, but that is not always the case. A contractor is able to explain the different options available to you. The wood selection matters for any structure and an experienced contractor can pick the proper wood that requires little maintenance and will give your structures longevity. 
  • Cost: If you opt to do this work yourself and you are not a professional, you are going to make mistakes. Mistakes can be costly to you and your project. Every time you make a mistake, it means more money. You may have to buy more material and you definitely need to spend more time fixing the mistake. The larger the error, the more it cost to fix it. If you have a specific amount budgeted for your project, mistakes can quickly eat up your budget. A contractor is better able to get a good price on the materials. They know where to find the best materials and may be able to get them at discounted costs. 

Questions to Ask Gazebo / Outbuilding Builder Contractors

According to Dulando Screening and Awning, Inc, there are several questions you should ask a contractor before hiring them to build a gazebo or outbuilding.

  • Are you licensed, bonded and insured? May I have a copy of the documents?
  • Do you specialize in gazebos and outbuildings, and how many have you built?
  • Do you include plans and specifications with your bid?
  • How quickly will I receive a copy of a detailed contract?
  • How many people will work on the construction and what are your hours?
  • What responsibilities will I have during the construction?
  • How can I contact you?
  • What is the total cost of the project and when do you expect payment?

What to expect when a Gazebo / Outbuilding Builder Contractors comes to your house?

One of the benefits to having a structure built outside of your house is that is should cause little to no disruption of your day to day life. It is important to remember that the contractor is building a structure, so that means they will be hammering, drilling, sawing and generally making a lot of noise. You should be aware of what time they plan to start each morning, so that you are not woken up to the sounds of construction. 

You should know if the contractors are going to need to enter your home for any reason. Will they need access to a bathroom? Will they need access to water or electricity? Typically, you should have a hose bib outside of your house where they can access water. You should also have an electricity outlet for them to have access to power. They may have equipment they need to set up, such as wood and other tools. They may ask if they can set that up in your garage or driveway. This may mean that your garage and driveway are blocked while they are working on your home. The contractor may have more than one truck showing up outside of your house that may also block your driveway. You may want to have your car parked on the street so that you are able to get out when you want. You should have a conversation with the contractor before work starts about where the vehicles will park. You may want to consider letting your neighbors know that you are having construction work done in your yard, so they also know when to expect the noise. You do not have to do this, but just as a courtesy to your neighbors. 

What type of training do Gazebo / Outbuilding Builder Contractors get?

Typically, a gazebo or outbuilding contractor falls under the general contractor category. They have some basic requirements required of them, such as high school diploma or GED. They also need to have completed math, English, physics, mechanical drawing, welding, and blueprint reading classes. When in the construction field, it is common for some to start as apprentices or laborers. These people learn on the job and then more work they do, the more experienced they become. There are degrees available within construction fields. Some may choose a management course of study to become construction managers, while others may choose a degree in engineering or business. Individuals that build structures such as gazebos may choose to specialize in carpentry. 

When it comes to carpentry, a contractor may have to have lessons in a classroom as well as doing hands on work to gain all the needed experience. Trade schools often offer classes, including safety classes. It may take two to four years to complete these courses. Typically, you must be 18 years of age before taking on any of these paths.

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) offers certification in different areas such as carpentry, plumbing, pipe fitting, and heating and air conditioning. A contractor should be aware of what each state in their surrounding area requires of them to be able to operate. The contractor should be able to show you proof of their certifications and licenses.
