In the Pacific Northwest, a complete outdoor space can provide an ideal area for spending time with family, firing up the grill or taking in surrounding views. Whether seeking shade from the summer sun, or coverage from the region’s familiar drizzle, outdoor living improvements can take on many forms. And at Precision Patio Covers, their main mission is to help demystify the process toward a complete outdoor space. Acting as a resource, Precision Patio Covers provides up-to-date information and excellent service while also giving back to the greater community.
Helping clients to create their ideal outdoor space, Precision Patio Covers specializes in a wide range of outdoor living improvement projects, including patio covers, decks, retractable awnings and sunrooms. From backyard decks and sunrooms to handrails, the Precision Patio Covers team uses materials that are simple to clean and require little maintenance. Working with each client, the team at Precision Patio covers works with home owners and business owners to build an outdoor space that can be enjoyed in both rain and shine, and throughout all four seasons.
“We get a ton of calls where people think they know what they want but they’re not sure,” explains Benjamin John, CEO of Precision Patio Covers. “And they really just want somebody to either have a conversation, or ultimately have somebody come out to the job site and do a site plan walkthrough, go over suggestions and different solutions and what might make sense, what would work well within their specific job site area.”
John says that as a resource to the community, providing accurate and timely information for outdoor improvement projects is important, because each project may have a different timeline or steps to take along the way. And by providing up to date information, including a project’s scope or pricing, clients can decide on an outdoor space that works best for their needs.
“Our purpose really is to first get people the information that you want,” explains John. “There can be a lot of questions regarding home improvement. Depending on the type of project, it can be a one two-day job or it can be kind of a huge undertaking. And when it’s a bigger job, there are a lot of elements to it that you got to really prepare for. There are a lot of questions as far as how it’s going to be approached and the kind of the steps that need to be taken, whether it’s permits, HOA approval, engineering, people have a ton of questions. And so, I spent a good portion of my time on phones getting information out to people.”
As a local business, Precision Patio Covers is also an active member of the South Sound community by participating in trade shows and providing support for local causes and organizations. A lesson passed down from John’s mentor, community involvement has become an important pillar of Precision Patio Covers. Currently, Precision Patio Covers provides sponsorships for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Thurston County and the Thurston County Washington Explorer Search and Rescue Team as a way to give back to the community. “I was taught by my mentor on getting involved with the community,” says John. “Networking and helping out as much as possible. It’s good to establish relationships with your local community.”
From the initial consultation, John ensures proper communication throughout the entire design and construction process, to even after the project’s completion. “Communication is key,” says John. “And that is part of our mission, is to make sure you’re fully aware. Even after job’s finished, we follow up by doing a walkthrough to make sure that they’re happy, there’s no lingering things on the job that we might have missed any questions or concerns, all that can be addressed during a walkthrough.” During construction, the Precision Patio Covers team will also provide comprehensive updates about the project, providing the client an accurate timeline toward a complete outdoor space.
The right outdoor improvement project can help homeowners make better use of their outdoor space, increasing opportunities for entertainment, relaxation and recreation. Through creating a complete outdoor space, homeowners can find both shade from the sun or shelter on rainy day. With a range of projects that provide protection from the elements, Precision Patio Covers can help homeowners build an outdoor space that can be enjoyed during the summer and throughout the year.
“It’s a four-season type product,” says John. “It’s nice to shelter from the sun in the summertime and then, in turn, these other wet seasons. It can provide shelter from the rain, so you can have a nice dry area. You can move out there, read a book even barbecue anytime you want, you can pretty much utilize this this space and reclaim the space really that hasn’t been utilized.”
