"Mr. did the estimate, I accepted, and he did the job the very next day. Several other neighbors had their driveways done at this time, also." He was able to get all the jobs done in one day. They started early in the morning with excavation. It was very well organized, and by the end of the day, everything was finished. The work was excellent quality and he took particular care to get rid of the depressions at the end of the driveway and to make a very nice fan shape into the street. It is very neat and looks great. aims to please.

-Carol E. A.

"Excellent, the owner was very responsive to every question and returning my calls. He was also very helpful and added good points to help me pick the color and" type of finish. Happy with entire process and the job they did.

How to Stain Your Deck in 3 Easy Steps

If hiring a contractor isn't in the budget this year and you’re ready to take on the project yourself, learn these three easy steps to staining your deck.

Moss and black stains on wood, siding or concrete patios can be cleaned without residual damage by using low-powered pressure washing, also known as a soft wash. (Photo by Katelin Kinney)

Homeowners eager to get rid of ugly stains on their siding, deck or patio, may worry about damage from pressure washing. That's where soft washing comes in.

Need to refinish your deck but can't remember what product you used last time? Here’s how to tell what kind of deck paint or wood stain you have and which is best.

Composite Deck

Neglecting your deck before a renovation could cost you.

If your deck's frame isn't securely attached to your house with heavy-duty bolts, you could risk a collapse when the deck pulls away from the house (Photo courtesy of Samson Contracting LLC)

Without the proper construction techniques, your deck could put you at a safety risk.

Angie's Answers


I agree with Jim Casper - after about 50 years of dealing with weathered wood finishing both in my homes and in the construction business, it comes down to about 90% preparation, 10% the finishing. If you do not prep the wood right, any moisture, mold, etc in the wood will destroy whatever you put over it.

High-build finishes like paint and epoxies and, from reading the Rustoleum flyer on this new product that too, work by trying to make an impenetrable surface and depend on a very good bond with the surface, AND no water getting under them. Because they are thick and are designed to provide a waterproof surface, unfortunately where water gets under them they are just as good or better at keeping it from evaporating, so you get fungal growth, blistering, and peeling.

Unfortunately, on deck and most outdoor applications except siding the surface will get nicked, scratched and otherwise develop leaks in short order. Water will therefore get into the underlying wood, and because it entered through small cracks and scratches, does not have any airflow to make it evaporate, so it sits there and breaks the finish bond to the wood (causing peeling and blisters), and promotes decay. That is why new deck boards and siding and trim that have been heavily or multi-coat painted on all 4 sides, thinking that will give the best protection, only last a few years versus the usual 10-20 years or so for boards that are painted top and sides only.

The full sun and hot conditions will, of course, cause more thann normal heating of dark colored painted decking. I had one instance where I was doing an independent appraisal of a very large commercial deck at a government facility, and in 85-90 degree daytime temps, in the sushine the chocolate brown deck surface temp was 150 degrees, and the paint was softening so much it stuck to the bottom of your shoes a couple of months after application.

As Jim said, the studies pretty clearly show that a breathable penetrating stain gives the best life, after plain ACA/CCA (copper chromium variations - the green stuff) treated wood. Penetrating stains, properly applied, do NOT seal in the moisture, they inhibit its entry and (when dark colored) help protect against sun damage to the wood and finish, but still breathe enough to let moisture escape on dry days. For my money, I will only use petroleum distillate (paint thinner cleanup) products, as they penetrate into the wood much better. Water based ones immediately start swelling the wood pores, so it blocks further penetration of the stain, which while cleanup is a bit easier, totally defeats the purpose of a PENETRATING stain or sealer.

I would recommend against any sort of waterproofing sealer, as they trap the water just like paint, and I have never seen one that is effective for 2 years.

My personal preference, though it limits the architectural coloration possibilities, is ground-contact rated copper compound treated wood (NOT the Wolmanized brown product), which comes green initially but can be retreated with either green or brown solution or can be liquid colorized darker (though not easily to a specific tone) using either of those as a base. My practice is to redo the treatment before installation to ensure thorough treatment, as from the mill it commonly has skips where boards contacted each other or where stacking seperators laid on it, and the ends are commonly very poorly done. This is done after cutting to length, as cut ends have to be retreated anyway.  A simple short deck cleaner soak followed by a light pressure washing and brush or roller re-treating of ONLY the TOP surface every 10 years or so has, for me, reduced visible weathering of the boards and beams to negligible.

As stated by others: You get what you pay for.  Many contractors no longer use employees.  The cost/benefit ratio is gone by the time worker's comp. insurance, unemplyment and other taxes are paid.  Especially with the high turnover in our industry.  Many, myself included, have our guys set up as sub-contractors.  That means even if the job is only for a day the duties have been outlined and a set pay to complete those duties has been established from the onset.  It's a better way to manage costs once I got used to it.  Also, it means I can operate cheaper and not have to charge as much to the customer.  My agreements with my guys, which they sign, make it clear that I nor the homeowner are responsible for their safety and medical care should a problem arise and that all parties are relieved of any such obligation.  If you hire a contractor who follows this growing practice ask to see a copy of his sub-contractor agreement.

That being said, a legitimate contractor still has operating cost which vary by area and how they run their business.  I break even at $150/day not including labor and materials so I've got to charge more than that to make money.  To keep the math simple, if I'm paying $250 for a pne day job in labor plus another $300 in materials and $150 operating costs I've got to charge $700 to the customer to break even.  That's if I'm only doing one job a day which is why most of us manage several at a time.  The point I'm trying to make is that someone with the necessary knowledge and experience to build you a safe deck is not going to be cheap.  Knowledge accompanies success which costs money.

I've repaired or restructured several decks built by handymen who should find another profession.  Ask yourself this question when hiring someone for this project: Would I trust this person to build my house?  If the answer is no you need to find someone else.  The deck is just as important.  It's where your family, friends, kids are going to gather and interact.  If it isn't structurally sound it can collapse causing injury or even death.  One last word on decks: Always screw a deck together, don't nail it.

Assuming you buy the right size door to fit the rough opening, and that your old door is not a size that is no longer made, and that you get the correct depth and transition adapters and sills and flashing and trim and seals and such, and that you transport it home without distorting and damaging it, then removal and disposal of old one and install new one probably about $250-400 depending on how well it fits, number of transition and similar pieces that have to be assembled (from 1 or 2 for some doors to as many as 30 on others).

The laundry list of things at the start WAS intended to intimidate you - I would say not 1 in 25 homeowners who buy a new patio door have bought it the right size for the rough opening and have everything needed to install it - the contractor almost invariably has to go get materials or parts to complete the installation - sometimes waiting weeks for factory adapters that are needed or missing parts AFTER the original door has already been taken out.

I would question why you are going to probably spend as much installing a door that may not do the job for you as the cost of the door. I would hazard at least half of people who go buy a $250-400 cheap door at a box store are sorely disappointed within months - due to poorly fitted parts, bad or non-existent seals causing drafts or water leaks, fogging or breaking glass, etc.

I would recommend you assess your needs, in conjunction with your installer find a decent and reputable brand unit to fit that need and that fits the loction right, and probably pay 50% more installed but have something that you might actually be happy with. Oh - BTW - your best installers generally will not install the cheapest box store units because they do not want the callbacks, so many times the quality of the installer who will actually do the job for you at a price you are willing to pay gives you a job that is - you guessed it, worth what you paid for it.


The product has evolved considerably since the lawsuit.


I would still do your own research and give you contractor your feedback.  At the end of the day, the cost for whatever board you want will be similar. 


Deck Cleaning reviews in Harrisburg


Mr. is exceptional. The work progressed smoothly and quicker then I was expecting. He is very professional and reasonably priced. We have been using his service for approx. 8 years. Both our sons had work done also by Mr.
- Jeff C.

They did a good job on the post and rail fence install. The clean up could have been better, but for the price I would consider them for installing manufactured fencing in the future.
The deck floor and stair treads was more diffcult then they anticipated, but did a fair job for the price, quality of materials was poor, probably my fault for ...More not questioning the grade of material. .
The custom fencing made to match exsiting fence around pool had a price that I thought was low, and I should have known better since I had built the 100 ft of fence around the pool. The quality of the fit of the balisters and rails was terriable at best. The young worker, I do not believe, ever had a saw or square in his hand before. I would not consider using them for custom fence work.
- Edward K.

I was very pleased with the work performed by Keystone. They cleaned my house, which is sided in vinyl, and they cleaned both of my decks, which are made of a composite material. Both looked terrific when Keystone was done. I saw some places on the house where there were drips of dirty water that showed on the siding, so I called, and Keystone did swing ...More by to take care of them. I liked that I dealt with the business owners both in person and on the phone, and they were professional and very nice. I have recommended Keystone to one of my neighbors, and I plan to use their services again.
- Beryl K.

Very professional. explained everything in detail, and I received a professional estimate. There was a small delay in completing the staining of the deck, but overall service was good. Would use them again.
- Bernadette H.

Roof for our home (bi-level) was completed less than a week after negotiated terms with (the owner). The roof was replaced in one day. They were very professional and searched around our entire home to ensure no nails or shingle pieces were left behind. Have received numerous complements from neighbors of how nice the roof ...More looks and how quickly it was replaced.
Getting the deck replaced took over a month to get started. apologized and said the weather was backing up all his jobs. He then had the job (deck repair and redesign and lattice work) started within 2 days of our discussion. who did and oversaw all the work on the deck and lattice is probably one of the best repairmen I have came across since my father (God rest his soul). Absolutely no detail was missed. Our deck is not a normal wooden deck. The structure was wood but then rubber sheeting was on top of the wood and then carpet on that. The problem was that who ever made the deck (was with the house when purchased), never sealed the rubber sheeting to the wood so it was moldy and rotted due to water seepage. removed all the bad wood of the floor and structure and replaced it. Then laid a new of rubber sheeting and he and his crew then sealed every area with a black tar (or some type of goo). A new floor was laid of a thick rubber tile instead of the carpet.
He replaced wooden lattice (that had to be repainted every couple of years) with plastic lattice around our patio (which is under the deck) and around a flower bed beside our garage. He also put plastic trimming around all the lattice work too so no more painting (yeah)!
Our neighbors have been watching to see what all is being done and now have started coming to ask to see the what we have had done. Everyone reacts the same way when seeing the new deck by immediately saying 'Wow". Yes, that's how nice it looks. The lattice work on the patio just dresses the area up and enhances the beauty of the backyard and pool area. I cannot say enough of how wonderful of a job that was done. I am 150% satisfied with the work done to my home. I highly recommend and highly suggest you ask for .
- Allan S.

I can't say enough good things about this company. We had a prior bad experience having our home pressure washed as we had water come into our home. I expressed our concern to when I scheduled our appointment for our estimate. (the owner) and his associate came for our estimate and photographed several ...More areas of concern or areas where pressure washing could cause paint to chip, etc. and also specific areas that had mold that required cleaning. Also, recommended Plex-Master which will prevent a future issue with mold and debris/dirt residue on our siding. Our siding is white which shows every small bit of mold or residue. Also, added to the estimate would be (the owner) personally on-site when the services would be performed to assure we did not have water come into our home as we have had in the past with a prior company. On the day of our scheduled date of service, Monday, March 25th we had 3 inches of snow. Of course, the services could not be performed in snow. The company offered to come on Saturday, March 30th. They didn't want me to have to take another day off of work to be home for the washing. Normally, they do not work Saturday hours. What wonderful service, that really means a lot in this day and age!!! They arrived 15 minutes early and hit the project immediately. We now have the best looking house in the neighborhood! Our siding looks brand new and the Plex-Master cleaned and shined the siding amazingly! Our deck looks terrific, our patio area looks incredible. There were a few spots that were missed on the original wash, and came back to clean the extra spots himself. I can't express how happy we are, I only wish I had found them sooner. I must also add the fact the guys moved several items for us while the cleaning was in process and then moved them back once completed. I've recommended to several people and will continue to do so. Great customer service and a job well done!
- Denise N.

did a good job on powerwashing and staining the deck. While they could have been a bit more careful around the screens, I do plan on using them again in the spring to power wash the house.
- Patricia W.

I will keep this short by saying that they are extremely overpriced and their price is very negotiable. The estimate started at $18,000 and after negotiations and talking with the supposed estimator/saes rep. we were at $9,500. This was on the condition that I allowed him to show up the next day and meet with my insurance adjuster and if they gave me ...More a check I would have them do the work.Needless to say the sales rep blew me off and the insurance adjuster was p*****. I never heard from them again.
