Have you ever thought about the kind of backyard renovation companies that exist in Burlington? Probably not. But have you ever thought about… …getting your privacy fence put in for the pool you are hoping to have installed soon? …giving your sundeck a make-over, especially repairing that frustrating bottom step you want everyone to avoid so their feet don’t go through it? …building a storage shed for your lawn mower, weed trimmer, gardening tools and other backyard supplies? …hiring a fence installation company because you would love it if your dog can freely run in your backyard? …repairing the work the deck construction contractors you previously hired had completed that you aren’t very happy with? …finally having the backyard retreat you’ve always dreamed about? Probably!
Obstacles of the DIY handyperson
It seems that more television shows, websites and magazines are encouraging everyone to take on do-it-yourself projects. For most people, looking at the “before” picture may be motivating; however, most people never get to see the “after” because they run out of money or they encounter problems they didn’t anticipate (or budget for). You will quickly see why using backyard renovation companies will save you time, money and a lot of headaches.Decks:
One of the biggest challenges people face when building decks attached to their home – without using backyard renovation companies – is water infiltration and damage. Water infiltration occurs when water is absorbed into a surface and water drainage is not affective. Water can sneak into nooks and crannies you didn’t think existed. If this happens, you may need to replace the floors and doors inside of your home, windows, even the structure of your home may need to be repaired.
Issues of this kind arise constantly during DIY projects of this magnitude, and can be easily avoided by hiring reputable backyard renovation companies.Fences:
Using fence installation services may seem unnecessary for something that sounds so easy to do on your own. Let’s really think about what you’d have to consider, though: type of wood to use, the height the posts have to or can be, the fact that the posts all have to be even, and the distance between each post. Have you gotten your permits? How deep is the frost line in your area?? What is a frost line??
One of the most difficult challenges people face with this DIY project is building a fence on or near a slope. Building a fence incorrectly on a slope can lead to drainage issues and potentially damage your home’s foundation, or cause major irrigation issues in your backyard.
Here at Northgate Construction, we recommend leaving jobs like this to a professional fence installation company.Sheds:
Again, many people take the “DIY route” rather than use backyard renovation companies that offer shed installation services. Unfortunately, water damage seems to be what’s common in issues that result from outdoor DIY projects. With regards to sheds, water vapour and condensation build-up in metal sheds is common place, leading to material erosion, and greater exposure to the elements to everything you have stored within your shed. Ensuring to create a level foundation on which to build a shed can also prove to be difficult for someone who is not experienced.
Benefits of hiring reputable backyard renovation companies
Browsing through a list of backyard renovation companies can seem overwhelming, but while you are scanning through the list, it is important to be mindful about why using backyard renovation companies is worth your while.Decks:
Deck construction contractors that work with backyard renovation companies will be your saviour.
Why do we recommend using deck construction contractors? Yes, we admittedly have an incredibly talented team of them, but we’ve also been asked to repair a lot of DIY decks that have led to larger problems. Common issues include using the wrong type of wood, not confirming property lines, or not having the appropriate permits to build your deck in the first place.
There certainly is not a shortage of deck construction companies; here at Northgate Construction, we want to make sure you do not waste your time or hard-earned money trying to build a deck yourself. Rather, have our deck construction contractors do it right the first time.
Deck construction companies should listen to your budget and admit whether it’s possible to stay within it after hearing what you would like your deck to look like. Instead, they typically work very hard to increase their sale by suggesting more expensive things. Take these particular deck construction contractors’ recommendations to use red wood as a red flag.Fences:

To discuss building fences on or near a slope again, backyard renovation companies offering fence installation services know what to consider: the drainage of the slope, the percentage of the slope, and special equipment they would have to use.
For whatever reason you would like a new wooden fence, it is important to leave this daunting and tedious task with lots of repercussions if done incorrectly to backyard renovation companies offering fence installation services.Sheds:
