"
answered my original call and came out personally to give us an estimate. He was on time, very knowledgable and overall just a really nice" guy. We weren't sure what we wanted to do and
gave us great suggestions for both our back patio and front walkway. He prepared the quote very quickly and came in under other quotes we had gotten. He gave us a start date and said that he'd have it done in about a week. I have to say that I thought that was an ambitious and possibly unrealistic goal but, true to his word, it was done within a week of when they started.
was on site often during the week and was very easy to get in touch with when questions came up. His crew was polite, very skilled, and left the job super clean. We were thrilled with every aspect! After the job was done we realized that the electrical outlets on the patio extension were a little off from where they needed to be to accommodate the kitchen that was being delivered in two days! We panicked and called
. He had his electrician out at our house the next day to make the correction! It is rare these days to find someone who truly understands customer service AND does excellent work. I would recommend
to any one. In fact, my brother just had his patio extended and loved
's work as well.

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.

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.

?

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.

They were unresponsive to problems I had afterwards. I was not very happy about it. They were some hairline cracks in the concrete, which I pointed out to him before he ever did it. He said not worry because they grounded those out and filled them with epoxy of some sort that is expandable. They put the surface over it. One of the cracks reappeared and opened up pretty badly. He came back and had his guys grounded it out again but never came back and refilled it. It was a very speculate breakthrough this lab through the topping. One area is highly conspicuous. I had the patio pressure cleaned because we had mildew. It was popping off due to the pressure cleaner. Now, it’s going to be a problem the next time we have to have it pressure cleaned. In this planet, you get a lot of mildew; it’s an issue you have to deal with from time to time. I would too if I’d still be able to do it. That’s disappointing. It did not worked out satisfactorily.

I scheduled an appointment with
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
from
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. He called ahead, then arrived at the house on time. He was very professional and friendly but not pushy. He brought with him an ipad filled with photos of work they had performed as well as a photo album. While he measured the patio area, I browsed his work and found photos that I liked. After we met and reviewed what I had in mind,
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
took me out to his car where he had samples of travertine and pool tiles. That made it very easy for me to choose! Minutes later, I had a written proposal in my hand. After receiving several estimates, I called

to discuss more details and pricing.

came out to the house the next day and I signed a contract with

and gave him a deposit. Within 48 hours, they started the job! The shutters and screening were removed one day, then all of the tile and flower box were chipped up the next. By day 3, all the old tile was removed. By day 4, new tile was being placed down.

probably would have finished everything in 1 week, however, it rained almost every day. The entire job took only 11 days with extensive rain. Many of the workers worked into the evenings and over the weekend.

It started well, I had them come over and draw pretty pictures. Unfortunately, that's where it all ended.
Communications has been spotty, to say the least, and I've yet to receive an estimate.
Either they are overworked and understaffed, or they do not genuinely care about their business.

Just had a sunroom built by
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. I found them on Angies List and liked their reviews so we gave them a call. I spoke with a young lady on the phone who scheduled an estimate appointment for me, they even accommodated my work schedule and set the appointment for a Saturday.
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was the next person I spoke to, he called when he was on his way to our home Saturday morning. He arrived, asked what we were looking to build, apparently he listened carefully as his sketch of the room was exactly what we were looking for. We thought about it for a week and although we had received a bid for around 3,000 less from another company, decided to go with Venetian as we thought their version of the room was the most attractive.
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was scheduled to come back out to fill out all of the paperwork, and there was a bunch of paperwork indeed, but he was very efficient and explained the process carefully and was patient with the 500 questions we had along the way. After all of the paperwork was completed, we heard from their general manager (
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked

gave us a call to let us know that

had been assigned to build out sunroom as he is their specialist in glass enclosures and needed to set a time to meet with us and review the project before they fabricated the room.
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
scheduled with us again on a Saturday, arrived and reviewed the contract and permit information and spent around 3 hours taking measurements and leveling things, then let us know he was going to build the walls of the room in the factory, then return when he had them assembled and ready to install. We waited for a week and
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called to set an appointment to begin his installation. Once these guys arrived to begin work, they really moved. The walls were mostly built when they arrived at our home,
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his helper had the framing of the room done in 3 days, then had the roof up on day 5, they worked in a relatively clean manner and were both very polite and easy to deal with, even with some questions thrown in here and there. Once the room was standing,
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
let us know they needed to order the glass and that would take 3 weeks to arrive. He said he would call once the glass was in their factory to schedule a date to come and finish our new room. The glass arrived 2 weeks later,
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called, we let him know he could start anytime and he had the glass installed before the weekend and final building department inspection scheduled and passed the following week. Although we could have asked for a little more communication over the length of the project, we felt the Venetian staff were very competent and happy to be working for us. The room is great and we couldn’t find anything to complain about when it comes to quality as our finished sunroom is beautiful. I would definitely recommend Venetian to anyone that asks as we thought this process was really going to be painful but it turned out to be a piece of cake. Nice work guys.

Upon estimate,
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
took the time to actually show me samples and pictures of work done. I was actually impressed with the knowledge and professionalism
Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
displayed. I admire when a contractor actually knows and educates his clients on the products they are selling. Not to mention, he came to my home on a Sunday and was very patient with the process. He gave me a date to start and told me the whole process would be done in 3 days. I was very skeptical but considering the other reviews I read on Angie' list, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. His pricing was also very fair and offered 0% financing which was a huge benefit.

Miami Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
called me a day before delivery of material to inform me of a time the pavers would be delivered. To my surprise, he also told me that the job would be started a day before scheduled. I was very surprised by that news and eager to see it all come together.



Materials were delivered when promised and job was started one day later.

's crew were both punctual and courteous. They worked at a tremendous speed and discipline. They left no stone unturned and had a very special eye for details. I am the most pickiest of customer and was very impressed by the work they had performed. Also,

came down form Coral Springs to Miami (Country Walk) everyday to see how things were going. Very impressive. They also met the 3 day deadline.

My wife and I are 100% completely happy with this company and the work they performed. I probably will go out on a limb and say this is the best contractor I have dealt with to date being a homeowner of 14yrs. Thanks to

's phone number somewhere in the papers of the house, so I called the guy to ask if the roof had a warranty. He told me it did so I asked if he could come out to repair the leaks. He said sure so we set up an appointment. I think he said he was going to send his roofer sub-contractors out. They didn't show up for the appointment so i called and the guy said, in a condescending

I've had so many experiences like this lately with contractors and hearing the horrible bad luck they have every time they stand me up, which is why I joined Angie's List, in order to try to avoid these types of experiences. So far I've had the same experiences with contractors on Angie's List. Is there any hope to find professional people in Miami?
