Madison Deck Builders from people just like you.

"The tech showed up on time and was very professional and courteous. He pressure washed and cleaned my paver driveway thoroughly. Before preceding with
" the driveway he asked if I had any concerns and was satisfied with the cleaning. The pavers looked as new as the day I moved into my home. He then started
the driveway and took his time to ensure an evenly coat over all the pavers. My driveway looks amazing. It turned out much better than I had imagined. From the first phone call, to the estimate, to the completion of the job,
was professional, honest, and performed and excellent job on my driveway. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again in the future.

"We contracted with
to build a pressure treated deck which included. a
. The work was done in October of last year" . At he time we were told not to stain or seal it since it had to dry and to do tha staining and sealing in the Spring in April I noticed that some of the joists were warped and they came and replaced them. Afterward I got the wood stained and sealed. Over the last couple of weeks I noticed the the capping on the fence was warping and coming loose from the fence. I also noticed another warped joist as well as mite red corners that were separated. I again called the owner of the company and he told me it was essentially
fault because I had not stained and sealed the deck earlier and they used the lowest quality wood available. At the beginning of the Job he never revealed that he was Gonig to use sub par materials or warn me about cracking or warping This was his response to my complaint. Your deck is made or acq lumber the least expensive material there is U were told to seal your deck in a timely manor and u didn't. This wood is known to shrink crack and bow. Especially if not sealed when and how it should have been. As u know the deck looked great all miters were tight when we completed the deck or u would not have paid us. We have no control of how or if the wood shrinks or expands. We went back to your house once already for wood that bowed probably because it was not sealed when it should have been and just because u seal the deck that does help the damage that was already done to the wood from not being sealed

Angie's Answers

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. 

Deck Building reviews in Madison


Co2 replaced and redesigned a deck that has been in use for More than 15 years. Our 19 year son and his healthy friends can now relax safely in what has become an additional room with two outside entrances. The pets (dog and cat) love it as they can access the yard without human interference, but will not run away because the two new gates are secure. We have room for storage underneath and can enjoy breakfast or dinner in comfort. They showed up promptly and worked long days. They cleaned up daily and showed receipts for all supplies purchased for the job. The job was started and finished on time even with additional requests that we made once we saw the high quality of their work. They are good, efficient and pleasant to work with. I wish I had the funds to do even more work inside the house!
- Annette W.

Provider called and texted several time about coming to give an estimate. Person never showed up even after they rescheduled twice. I texted them and asked if they got a
Madison Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to look at my deck and when they were sending the estimate that was promised, but never got a response.
- Sheena C.

I have NO understanding of why this company has such high ratings for
finished work when their sales people shut down quotes before they are
even done.
After being asked how much we expect to pay for this
project, she said it would take twice what we estimated. Of course we
were surprised to hear that and so before we even really had a
Madison Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
respond her response was - so are we done here?
What kind of sales tactic is that? You can play hard-to-get, or whatever that was,
all you want. I am not going to be part of it. Meanwhile, this quote
process had been completely inadequate - kept using decking terminology
without explaining what it was and she did not do a proper job taking
our input of what we were looking for (size, layout in the yard, tried
to DOWN SELL us in features before we even talked price, and so on).
While we were looking through the dated pictures on her iPad choosing ones
that had features we liked, an appointment reminder popped up that was
at 3:30 (her appointment with us was had started at 3 and we hadn't even
sat down to talk yet). I suppose she had a bigger better deal waiting
for her at 3:30 that she was willing to not try to land this sale and
get to the next one.
Thanks for nothing except absolutely wasting
our time! Do everyone a favor and only schedule quote meetings during
times that people don't need to leave work early for. Oh, and have your
sales people actually try to make a sale.
Good grief!

was always easy to get in touch with and explained everything thoroughly. His quote was clear and well laid out. He provided some ballpark figures for some other projects around the house, just so I could keep those in mind. In the end we went with a different company, but we will be contacting

I previously had a treated 2"x12" lumber framework added around the perimeter of my deck.

and crew built up this area and gently sloped it away, blending it with the adjoining portions of the lawn. All work was done by hand. When the soli had been put in place, the area was seeded, fertilized and covered with straw. I was given explicit instructions as to maintenance for the next several weeks/ Very impressed with their efforts and their professionalism.
- Mark B.

They were very professional. They applied many layers of underlay and decking material. The decks look beautiful. Plus they repaired stucco on the side of my house which had buckled due to the leaking of the old deck.
