Craig Arthur, branch manager for Outside Concepts Adelaide’s southern suburbs which includes Marion.

My name is Craig Arthur and I’m the branch manager for Adelaide’s southern suburbs, including Marion.

Firstly, thanks for taking the time to look at my page and the Outside Concepts website. You’ll perhaps understand by now that by choosing Outside Concepts you won’t just get a structure, you’ll get a quality built asset that will add value to your home.

Im not a ‘Sales Guy’…

The other thing you won’t get when you choose Outside Concepts and my branch is a sales representative coming to your house, more interested in gaining the highest commission than meeting the needs of clients. I don’t talk the talk of a salesman. Instead, I will do my utmost to advise you on different options and ideas of what will work best for you. As a building supervisor, my goal is to design the best structure to suit your needs rather than gain a sale and move on to the next one.

I’ve been building for years

I have built hundreds of structures over the years, in the process helping to create outdoor living spaces where people can relax and entertain in comfort. In addition, my son and I have installed many outdoor blinds to complete people’s outdoor living areas. We can show you our range of outdoor blinds and install them on any existing structure. Many people who have gone on to become clients have commented on how nice it is to have the person quoting the blinds actually installing them.

I’ll be with you throughout the process

With more than 27-years experience in the home improvement industry, I can help you through the entire process of making your outdoor living dream a reality. What’s more, I can make the process easy. Whether you want a deck, verandah, pergola, patio, carport or outdoor blinds, I can guide you through all the options, planning permits, insurances and engineering requirements.

Southern Adelaide region including Marion is operated by Craig

Testimonials

Hi Craig,

I just wanted to say thanks and how pleased I am with my pergola. It looks just as I hoped.

Cody was great. Showed up on time ( rare these days), cleaned up at the end and did a brilliant job. He was friendly and courteous but consistently got stuck in to the job.

I was very impressed with the whole process

I would have no hesitation in recommending Outside Concepts.
