"I hired them after seeing an Angie's List review that said "don't WASTE ANY MORE TIME LOOKING, JUST HIRE THIS COMPANY" ... and they were right!" After calling many other deck companies and getting quotes, I should have just hired to begin with! The deck is large cedar and was long overdue for cleaning and staining ... really needed restoration and it was done beautifully! We looked at each board that needed replacing before the job was started so we were all on the same page. Railing posts were rotting so they got creative on site to put in decorative brackets to secure nails. , , , and the whole team was wonderful. don't look any longer ... this company is great!

" was a pleasure to work with. He gave us good advice on how to extend the life of our deck. He does not replace rotten boards so we hired" someone else to do that work before he washed and stained the deck. He completed the work on our deck while we were on vacation. When we came home we were very pleased with the results.

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.

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.

Neglecting your deck before a renovation could cost you.

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

Wooden decks can deteriorate quickly without proper care and regular maintenance. Follow these 10 guidelines to make your wood deck last as long as possible.

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.

Great experience. We had just purchased the home. It had not received exterior maintenance for many years. There was a large number of holes and gaps to fill in but and his people - Will - were great at solving that problem as well. .
I think it looks great but offered to follow up in the spring ...More to make sure nothing needs to be reblended due to the house having some areas of newer wood. I highly recommend to other list users!! Great people doing great work. Professional, respectful and honest.

Integrity?
After meeting several contractors, I was ready to hire based on his original quote and his reviews here that speaks highly about his integrity. He comes by and suddenly the cost is 25% additional.
That's not integrity, that's bait and shift.
He then presents a contract (25% higher than ...More the quote) and I say "I need to read it" and he insists I sign it right then…
and gets up and leaves in a - that's not integrity. That's hard sales pressure.

At this job cleaned out gutters, removed the screens that were not working properly, repaired leaking portions of the gutters and then also changed out a door lock and shaved down the door to work properly for my tenant. He met with the tenants and they were very pleased with his demeanor and knowledge.

Other jobs ...More that this company have performed went equally well. They have removed pounds of clutter from a listing, taken hazardous waste to the recycling, painted, removed tree limbs that were rubbing on the roof, removed overgrowth that was over 6 feet tall around a listing I had as well as changing out hot water heaters and fixing leaking sinks.

They can do almost any repair that I have needed for my real estate business.

I wanted to preserve the color of the new redwood deck but protect it from the elements. I did get conflicting advice from the provider and - . I wasn't really happy with the color of the stain and felt that it was not applied as well as it could be. I should have done a little more research.
