When considering which contractor you should choose to build your patio, porch, or deck, it is crucial to choose an established company that focuses on safety for every single one of their projects. While many businesses may say that safety is their #1 concern, it is important to choose a company that has a long-standing, strong reputation in the community. Atlanta Porch and Patio has received many stellar reviews from satisfied customers regarding our safety measures on Facebook, Kudzu, Houzz, Google, and Angie’s List.

 

Building Codes

At Atlanta Porch & Patio, we take pride in creating extraordinary outdoor living spaces that are not only gorgeous but safe and secure. Although our building standards are higher than any GA code standards (we build to the highest standards of FL and CA building codes for a safer outcome), we always permit all of our jobs so that local inspectors can be a second set of eyes.

 

Materials and Hardware

Be sure to ask your contractor about the materials and hardware they use in their projects. For example, at Atlanta Porch & Patio our lumber is pressure treated with chemicals and rated for ground contact, plus we use stainless steel screws to prevent corrosion from the wood’s chemicals. Lookout for contractors who make shortcuts to save $50 here and $50 there. You don’t want their shortcuts to affect the safety of your structures.

 

Licensing and Insurance

Always hire a licensed builder! Licensed builders are required to carry a certain level of insurance with a prescribed level of coverage and contractors are only able to obtain insurance if their safety record is good. At Atlanta Porch & Patio, we post our business license, builders license, and certificate of insurance on our website for easy access by current and potential clients.
