"Had contacted
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
a year earlier (late 2012) during the
siding bid process, due to the costs decided to wait but had
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
do some
wood siding and porch repairs early 2013 that was perfect work. Latter part of this year 2013, re-bid and selected

and job was completed Nov. 5th.
Pros: Best bid I got both times including a few upgrades. Work was professionally done, looks like I
have a brand new house and have gotten nothing but compliments from the
neighborhood. The owner and estimator/contact

Ford was a pleasure to work with, a man of his word while being patient
(no hard sell), and a great eye for color/design suggestions. I followed one of his design suggestions and
was blown away with the results! The
work crew itself were professional and cleaned up daily and at the end of the
job, headed by
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
whom was a gentleman at all times and always responsive
to any questions.
Cons: Besides a couple miss-communications on job details (have never
seen that not happen lol) which were resolved and corrected immediately, I have
no other issues. I am typically very
critical of contractors and the resulting work, but would have to give a 98%
out of 100% to
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Ford and his staff, from estimation to
work quality to follow up.

"Scheduling after buying the Big Deal on September 10, went well and they were responsive. After being rained out once, date was set for October 2. Because the tile had to set and paint on the trim had to dry, handyman said he'd return the following week to wrap things up. The follow-up was the only disappointing part of the experience; had to call several times once the handyman didn't show up again. However, once the job was fully completed in late October, we were very satisfied and used

again for tub caulking.

Company was the person who

the project and we couldn't be happier with the entire process from beginning to finished product. We loved the "can-do" attitude and his attentiveness to detail and to what we wanted. My husband and I live in a 100 year old house which can be a challenge to work around. We have had some prior work done on the house which

us to be very cautious about who we used since we have had some bad outcomes. We really wanted just your basic 2 level porch with an emphasis on low maintenance since we did not want to have to do much upkeep on it - we just want to enjoy it.
Once the project started,
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was in communication with us, was easy to contact, was over once or twice a day to take a look at how things were moving along, and got the job done faster than we anticipated without any trauma or stress! The project came in at the price quote, there were no glitches, and the crew cleaned up everything plus were very professional and pleasant. The end result is exactly what we wanted. The only thing is - we love it so much I wish it were twice the size. I believe that

Company does more of custom home construction and additions than porches but we have highly recommended them to other people who want porches.

"On the evening of 9/19 I received a call that a medical issue came up and asked for me to reschedule to Sunday at 10am.
At 9:35 on Sunday the gentleman showed up. I started showing him the specifics.
1) The french door. We could fix that if he had a paddle bit in his truck and if I would go and get a cover for the hole he drilled in the floor. I offered my drill and standard bit so he could drill a smaller hole and fixed that.
2) He looked at the deck and agreed with me that it needed fixing. He wanted to reschedule for another time and wanted me to go to Home Depot or Lowes to pick up the supplies for an extra $10. He also suggested that I pick up a Deck Sealer that he recommended and that I should pick that up because I had to decide a color (that I agreed wtih).
3) He looked at where I wanted the railing and seemed surprised that I wanted it to mount to the concrete in place...he, of course didn't have the tools to do that either. I also did not have a high degree of confidence that he knew how to do that task.
He left with a promise to get back with me later that day after talking to the owner and to schedule the job that was suppose to be done that afternoon for either Monday or Tuesday and also he wanted another person to come out there (so now $80/hr) with him with the promise that it would take half the time. As he heads out the door I ask about what we are doing about the railing. He tells me to just measure the distance and buy piping but they can't cut it.
I go to Lowes. They do not have the deck sealant. So I call him. At that time he says that I need to go to Home Depot...even though I told him earlier I'm going to Lowes. He also told me he talked to the boss and they "might" be able to get back to me later this week. With the complete lack of professionalism so far I doubted it so asked for him to have the owner call me back. So far I have not heard back.
Bottom line, I call professionals when I do want to deal with a project or do not have the tools or expertise myself. I do not expect to have to supply tools, run around town getting supplies, and having to measure and figure out what's needed myself. I also expect that when I give someone a list of what needs doing and they say they are coming to do it, that they are prepared to either do the task or get the materials and then do the tasks. I thought that was what I was buying.

Update: In response to doing no work for me, that is correct even though I wish they were prepared to work the four hours they scheduled. I have not received any contact from this provider since my original review.

"A & W Power Wash was recommended to me by a real estate agent. I called/emailed and was pleased with the quick response. I received an estimate which was not low but not high either. I felt it was reasonable and proceeded with the work. They came out and power washed the porch and deck and that is when I began to get a feeling that this might not turn out so well. I have had my porch and deck cleaned and sealed before. Previously after power washing, the porch and deck looked significantly better immediately. All mold, dirt and rings from pots were gone. After A & W Power Wash cleaned the deck, they were still there. I Where the grill and mat was still had the old sealant and was quite notieable. It looked like it had barely been cleaned. I figured though they knew what they were doing and that after sealing the deck it would look better. Well, it looked worse. I called and again they were responsive and after a week and a half (they were on vacation) they came out to look. They told me that was just the way it should look. They offered to come back out and try and fix it. I said okay. I guess they came but it didn't make much of a difference. Exasperated, I paid them but told them I was not happy.
I then put ,after at least 2 weeks, my deck furniture and pots. I noticed the next day that there was what looked like mud spots all over the deck. It rained and I sprayed them with the hose thinking it would come right off. It did not. Then, I moved some furniture and more

. I emailed A & W asking them for help in getting it clean. I have not heard back from them and it has been over a week. The comment a friend made was "This isn't bad, it is worse than bad!".

"We had

. We had multiple sales calls from our sales guy (
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
) who was great to deal with. What we initially wanted and what was financially feasible were 2 different things so we changed gears midway through the process.
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was great through the changes and really listened to what we wanted. We were able to build a phenomenal deck for a great price (they came in as the lowest bid out of 3 companies). It took around 5 days from demo to completion.
We can't say enough good things about the guys we worked with.
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(GC) and his team were professional and punctual throughout the process. They kept a clean job site and were a pleasure to deal with. We had anywhere between 2 and 4 guys on site at any given time so they were able to get it done quickly. Quality and craftsmanship is top notch. And the finished carpentry touches really make it pop.
I would use
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
again in an instant and would recommend them to anyone. Good honest company with some fantastic carpenters. Use with confidence!

"I like the look of my front porch, but after 33 yrs, the wood columns, posts and railings were rotting in places. Aside from being unsightly, it was becoming a hazard too.

I had three other contractors quote on remedying the problem. Two suggested replacing all columns, posts and railings at a cost of about $2000 (give or take $100 or so). However, the end result would be a different, more vertical appearance because neither contractor could locate an exact match for my horizontal railings.

Another contractor quoted a $1000 to wrap the the wood with vinyl, but recommended against it because it would likely discolor over time and it wouldn't resolve the "hazard" problem.

Then I contacted
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, who I had used for another project last year (see my previous tree-removal report).

The owner, Ed, came out promptly and offered me a couple of options that would retain the look of my porch. One involved cutting out and replacing just the rotting wood sections, then caulking all porch seams, exposed nails & screw heads, etc., and sanding, priming and painting the entire porch. The second option would be similar, except it would entail replacing the entire columns and posts, rather than just cutting out the rotting parts.

I was delighted Ed's solutions would retain the look of my porch, and both were priced very reasonably.

I decided to go with the first option since it would retain the look of the porch more exactly, and save me nearly $300 over the second option. And Ed assured me the final look would be nearly seamless.

A few week's later, at the appointed time, two of Ed's staff (pleasant, college age guys), came out in a van and got to work setting up a table saw on the front walkway. They spent much of the day carefully measuring and cutting CUSTOM replacement parts for my porch. They also made sure everything was level, and caulked all seams & exposed nail & screw heads before they left for the day. They returned 10 days later, after the new wood had "cured", to sand, prime & paint the entire porch.

After enduring unsightly rotting porch columns and rails the past few years, I am thrilled to have my porch looking "new" again! I've attached some before & after pics below.

Recently I recommended
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to two neighbors. One needed his driveway expanded and another needed multiple home improvements, including a new roof, backyard patio and custom indoor shelving. Both neighbors had spoken with other contractors before contacting
Richmond Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
, and both are now fans of Ed's honesty and resourcefulness for pricing projects affordably.
