, the owner of
, did an excellent job. He painted my living room and bathroom. His painting was exceptional," his mannerism was professional and his price was very acceptable. I felt comfortable and confident with the job that he did. He was also very punctual and took an extreme effort to do a good job. Bill even returned the next day to provide some touch-ups. He even brought me coffee, which was such a nice surprise! I had previously hired JW Home Improvement to do some handyman work and I must say that I was disappointed with their workmanship. Bill
was actually able to solve my flooding basement issue and he also helped with other handyman issues. I will definitely hire Bill for future home projects! I would recommend him for his professionalism, dedication to a job well done and reasonable cost estimates. I have to say that it was refreshing to have a handyman and painter that is responsive and easy to talk to. He understood my concerns and my attention to costs since I had just recently purchased my first home. He actually is coming back this Saturday to help me with additional handyman projects. I am very excited to get my house back to looking lovely and WITHIN budget! I recommend him to others!

"We have used
several times to refinish our wood deck, but this is the first time he painted our house. It was" a large job and they did excellent work.
is a pleasure to work with: he is very good at letting you know when he will be arriving, or when he might not be working due to the weather. He had 4 or 5 guys working with him each day and they were all very polite, cleaned up every day, and were great with my dogs. We couldn't be happier with the job
did for us. We have absolutely no complaints.

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.

Dear Angie: What kind of companies can I hire to pressure wash a home and a wood deck? Are there any risks with power washing? -- Alan M., River Vale, New Jersey

After a harsh winter, get your home looking fresh and clean with a professional pressure washing. (Photo by Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dee G.)

Ready to tackle some deck maintenance? There are a lot of terms to understand, from joists to ledger boards. Here is a glossary of deck terms you should know.

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 Modesto


purchased the 299.99 special. Originally wanted this done within the two weeks first purchased but could not.
Then, played phone tag for 6 weeks (two weeks which i was on vacation, to be fair)
Told the owner my schedule 4 different conversations, he would then call the next week for a follow up and he never had is calendar available to book an appointment at time. It was a crazy cycle and after 6 frustrating weeks, conversations did not end well, have asked for a refund.

came out to do a quote, discussed our needs with ne, and then sent the quote over within 24 hours. They were able to start the work within three days of us accepting their quote. Theyou made the repairs we needed and powerwashed one day then sanded and stained another. The color, suggested by them was perfect. We still rave about how great it looks on a daily basis.

Side note - they aren't very active on Angie's List, so you may have to call or email. Mattached was extremely responsive via email.

He was timely and very professional and pleasant. Did an excellent job! The fence looks fantastic! The driveway nice and clean. we really appreciate your good work.
- David C.

Everything was excellent. They are a great contractor. They do good work, they are professional, on time, and if there is a problem they will take care of it.
- John R.

He used a kind of deck paint he had never used before. After I let it dry the time frame he told me to wait, and i put my furniture back on the deck, it emmediately began to peel the new paint off and show the old stain underneath. He came and resanded ad painted several spots. It kept spreading and spreading. He repainted the whole, not charging me, which I thought was professional. However, it still peeled after waiting a week to walk on it. The instructions said to wait 48 hours. He had the paint store rep come out, and then gave me his number. This rep told me it was because it's a floor surface, and thats why this was happening and that this was not a problem with the product. He said it was due to heavy furniture. The pool ladder, which is light enough for my then 7 year old so to lift into the pool did damage!!!
I texted

, and he said lets wait until this spring and see how the deck faired. Well, it is peeling like crazy, and even in spots where there is no furniture. I called and texted

this spring. No answer. At all. Which I think is very very unprofessional.
I would not use him.
If he calls me back and takes care of this issue like he promised he would, I will change my review

and his crew did a incredible job on sealing my flagstone patio. He was responsive, gave a fair quote, and provided great detail on why & how he would seal my patio. He recommended to have my driveway power washed and I'm glad he did. Looks like I have a new driveway!!.
Very happy with the price & most important the end product.

was very polite and professional with both my wife and I. He was thorough and communicative throughout the process. He is a very good deck repair specialist and I would recommend him to anyone looking for this type of service.
- John - Bert L.

I had not had it stained since I built it so I depended on him to get the right product. He brought the product over in an unmarked can and I found out it was paint mixed with turpentine. He claimed that he got it from Lowe's so I took it to Lowe's, gave them the number on the can and they said he did not get it from them. I contacted him to call things off and he told me he was going to come over and "shove it down my throat". I would strongly advise against hiring this company
