"They were very careful and covered everything that could get spray on , including a car that I forgot to move when we were gone that day. The men were very professional" and courtious in all that they did. I was very satisfied and glad I called them.
called me when I had chosen a color and let me know that that particular shade would mostly come out orange looking and not brown. He then recommended a shade that we are very happy with. A great way to do business. They were honest and reliable about everything---from the time he would come to give the estimate, too the day they would do the work. They are A-1 in my book.

-Raymond W.

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.

Pressure Washing, Deck Maintenance, Landscaping

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 Bessemer


They did a great job. I received a phone call about 2 weeks in advance to let me know they were coming. The owner, Bill, made the call. Then Bill called again the day before they were coming. The team of 4 people showed up early in the morning as promised to power wash the deck. That evening, Bill called again to let me know they would be back on Thursday morning to stain the deck (they power washed it on Tuesday). A team of 5 showed up early Thursday morning and completed the job in about 3 hours.

This is a first-class operation but you have to be prepared to wait your turn. They are very busy because they do such a high-quality job and they are at the mercy of the weather (a lot of rain during the first half of the summer resulted in unavoidable delays). I called in February 2015 to get an estimate. I got my estimate within a few days and they estimated they would be able to stain my deck in
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
, weather permitting. Due to the very wet summer, they weren't able to work on the deck until early September.

I recommend them without hesitation and will continue to use them every few years for maintenance.
- Therese K.

provides a very detailed estimate and assisted in guiding me through many color choices. I had a kitchen re-model and have two accent walls which really make the kitchen "pop". I also had to have the wood floors sanded, and he worked with the floor company to make sure the fine dust particles did not affect their work.
The crew was very professional and clean. The did a really nice job of covering the floors and making sure they're weren't any fine drops of paint.
They aren't the least expensive, but the price is fair for the amount of prep work and time spent. There were no surprises, because the estimate really covers everything to be done. There was 1 add on, but it was clear what it was going to cost.
Professional, clean and detailed oriented. Thanks!
- Hilary O.

The washing, sanding, and board replacement was fine, however the stain they applied has basically washed away and is non-existent, the deck and
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
which will require a complete re-staining next Spring.

- Dennis W.

Originally when I received the quote and turned my deposit in back in June, I was told that the work was expected to be done on 8/21/15. I received a call (on August 27) a few days before they were going to come out. The woman on phone said they would be out on Monday to power wash and I would receive a call to find out our stain color choice. They did come out on Monday, and then I got a call on Wednesday to find out our color choice for the painting to be done on Friday. They did paint the deck, but it clearly states in the contract that "any protruding nails" would be taken care of and everything was not cleaned up. They left behind a couple of clamps and a wad of tape. We were looking forward to not having anymore nails sticking up, unfortunately that did not happen. Also, the wood they put on the top rail was not sanded and is very scratchy. I called when I got home to voice my concerns and I thought I would receive a call back. I realize it was a long holiday weekend, but today, Tuesday, I still didn't receive a call back. Meanwhile, we haven't moved anything back on our deck hoping and waiting for them to return to finish the job. Communication and thoroughness seem to be some issues this company needs to work on. I expected more from an Angie's List provider.

EXTREMELY lovely accommodating my schedule and squeezing my job into their busy, rainy summer schedule.
Professional with an excellent finished look.
I will definitely use them in the future.
- Karen K.

Last Summer, I called a few places to have my pool deck stained, as it was 2 years old and the pressure treated wood had turned considerably greyer than when the deck was new.
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
was referred to me by a co-worker of mine. He lives in the same area as I do. I asked
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
to come over and provide an estimate for my job.
The initial estimate cost was $825 (which included power wash and 2 gallons of stain as well as Labor), and I figured that that was a great price at almost half the price of my next lowest estimate. I agreed to have
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
begin work on my deck.
He started my job when he said he would, even though he had other jobs going on at the same time as mine. The first day, he power-washed half of my deck. I saw the difference in the wood immediately. He came back the following day to finish power washing the other half of the deck.
We waited about a week, and
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
came back. This gave the wood the opportunity to "dry out" to the point where it would be able to accept stain for the first time.
My wife and I picked

Natural Number 500 Deck Stain to use on our deck.
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
even went to Home Depot to buy 2 gallons, per the initial quote.
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
began getting to work. As the job progressed, it became clear that the first 2 gallons were not enough for the job.
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
had to make 3 more trips to Home Depot to pick up an additional 5 gallons of stain (7 in total). He applied 2 total coats of stain to the deck boards and railings and 1 thick coat on the spindles, rolling on and back brushing my entire deck... BY HAND.
In total, the job took
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
about 40 hours worth of work by himself. If I am able to provide pictures with this review, I can prove his work is spectacular. After all of his additional work and extra special attention to detail, I decided to give him $1,050 for the work and $50 towards taking his wife out to dinner for working late on so many occasions... just to get my job done.
I should have paid him more. I know I would not have received the same level of service or quality of workmanship anywhere else.
If you have any painting or staining work, give
Bessemer Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
a call. You wont be sorry. I promise you.
- Frank H.

Everyone was professional. Communication was a bit of a problem. The first time someone came out to give me an estimate the gentleman did not come into the yard, so the bi-level deck around my pool was over looked. It was explained to me that the estimator would not come onto the property if no one was home. I understand this, however, it made the process that much longer. I had to wait for someone to come out and look at the back decks. But overall I am pleased with the work done and the coupon I purchased on Angies list made it affordable to me.
- Debra B.

Cost-effective, courteous and trustworthy. My job was likely easier than most as the fence(s) was brand new - no need to power wash. Additionally, as one side of the larger fence faced out and was difficult to get to, they did not need to oil it. Knowing all that, I wish the attention to detail was better. Objectively it was still a decent deal - I didn't need to buy the oil nor do the work. But, it wasn't as good of a deal as it could / should have been - was a very easy job.
