Understanding Licensing Requirements

Archadeck Outdoor Living has helped countless owners build brighter futures for themselves – and we’re ready to do the same for you. One of the best features of our franchise opportunity is that prior experience in the construction industry isn’t required. 

When you invest in our franchise, we’ll provide you with the training and support you need to become properly licensed. Proper licensing ensures compliance with local regulations, maintains high standards of workmanship, and protects both your business and your clients. The home remodeling contractor license requirements can vary by state and locality, making it essential for franchisees to understand the regulations pertinent to their areas.

Starting a business independently often means navigating the licensing process alone, which can be time-consuming and complex. In contrast, joining a franchise like Archadeck Outdoor Living provides significant advantages. We offer robust support in securing the necessary licenses and permits and guiding new franchisees through the regulatory landscape. Our support includes providing resources and assistance with applications, ensuring that all legal requirements are met efficiently.

We do not require previous construction experience as our training programs and franchise support teams will teach you all the basic elements you need to know.

Archadeck Outdoor Living designs and builds every type of outdoor living project, including decks, sunrooms, pergolas, patios, outdoor living spaces, gazebos, shade structures, outdoor kitchens, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, and hardscapes.

Archadeck Outdoor Living provides extensive support to its franchisees, including initial and ongoing training, marketing assistance, and operational guidance. Our support ensures franchisees are well-prepared to run their businesses effectively from day one. We also offer help obtaining necessary licenses and permits, as well as providing access to proprietary design software and a network of other franchisees for peer support and knowledge sharing.

What is the initial franchise investment required?

The start-up capital required to launch an Archadeck Outdoor Living business generally runs between $120,400 to $139,300, and working capital between $60,000 to $70,000, which includes the initial Archadeck Outdoor Living franchise fee. However, please note that start-up costs are significantly lower if you’re considering adding an Archadeck Outdoor Living franchise business to your existing business or are looking to convert your current deck and patio construction business to the Archadeck Outdoor Living brand. In addition, several discount and finance offerings are available to qualified candidates -  including Veterans.
