"Worst job ever. Horrible company and ignorant owner. We called in to get back on the schedule after paying $200 and he just kept pushing" us to the end of the week then to next week then the end of that week and so on.

-Amy J.

" The work started the day we agreed on and contined every day thereafter until the job was done. maintained his presence throughout the job" as stated. We made some changes along the way and they accomodated. The crew were all hardworking professsionals.They were always friendly and ccurtious with the neighbors thru the whole project. We couldnt have been happier with the finished product. We will hire for more work in the near future.

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 Building reviews in Port Saint Lucie


was great to work with. He communicated clearly and easily what the deck plan was, what permit was needed (and how long it would take), accurately estimated the cost and the timeline to start and complete the work.
He accommodated our desire to change the footprint of the deck, add a few little features like an access ...More point to a faucet, steps that wrapped around a corner, and other little details such as dealing with slope of the yard and tieing deck in with existing gazebo structure and two doors to home.
His crew was fastidious in their work. They were not the fastest crew, but they cleaned up each night and the final product is beautiful and well made. Getting inspections done was delayed, but once the approval came, work resumed immediately. If weather caused a delay, we appreciated getting a call explaining that the crew would or wouldn't be there that day.
We are completely satisfied with the quality, look and price for our deck. Our neighbors have complemented us on the look and design of the deck as well as the workmanship. We highly recommend .
- amy H.

. We received an estimate from in June who also warned us of his hectic schedule that would put the project back to August. He returned the weekend after giving the estimate to replace the board so that no one would fall through. He returned to complete the projects in October due to delays caused by projects that preceded ours. ...More He and his crew repaired everything well and the deck and bridge look much better and just in time for the holidays!
- Aya W.

was very professional in providing an estimate to replace the front porch. The crew showed up a little later than expected due to a flat tire. They finished the job in one day and removed all of the debris. Yard was left very clean and no damage to landscaping. One minor issue was addressed and corrected within a week. Overall ...More we are pleased with the outcome.
- Julie L F.

and his team did a great job from design to installation. Very complicated job on time within budget. They worked with us to refine the quote to ultimately give us exactly what we needed.
- Daniel M.

Started the work on time but never completed.

- Venu P.

Everything went as smoothly as could be expected with what I would describe as a medium size project. came out promptly on time to give a bid and gave a written estimate the same day which ended up being the final cost. I worked with Chip who was the project manager who did a great job keeping us updated on what was going on ...More and what the plan was. Some bad weather and supply shortages (not NC exteriors issues) slowed down the project a few days but I knew about everything as it was happening. and his team did a great job replacing our siding and the painters made it perfectly blend with the rest of the house. Our roof needs to be replaced and we will definitely be contracting NC exteriors for that work and a deck replacement next year. We looked around for several months and many contractors this was certainly the right choice.
The Family
- Caitlin M.

I did call with some questions after the service was done, that I wanted him to look at and I never heard back from them. The job was done nicely and it was beautiful. He was quick and responsive in the beginning.
- John P.

was a pleasure to work from the beginning of my project. He is extremely professional and responded to my request through Angie's List immediately to schedule our initial visit.
My job started with a front porch remodel and because of the quality of work I saw in the initial stage, I quickly decided that I had a very ...More good contractor here and expanded the scope of work to some much needed deck, staircase and siding replacement.
and team demolished my old porch and overhand and broke down a large concrete planter and revealed the original porch stoop for my house that was built in 1918. This took me in a different design direction and I was able to "refresh" the concrete surfaces of the original steps and add Tuscan columns to make this period stoop usable and beautiful again.
My house has vinyl siding on the outside and after we removed the vinyl for the porch, I did not have the heart to replace it and decided to install Plank cement siding instead. Combined with new stoop and colums, the porch looks like it belongs with the original 1918 Federal style design.
The best thing about my experience is that with and team, I felt like I had a design partner as well as a contractor throughout the remodeling and renovation project. learned my design sensibilities and aesthetic quickly and I was able to rely on his carefully considered decisions throughout the project and was committed to a high quality job.
also put together a great team of high quality workers who were reliable and could execute quickly with a very high level of quality. When discussing the front staircase, brought in his best concrete contractor who worked his magic to create a beautiful curving staircase for my entry. Each phase of the project, was able to bring in other professionals that knew how to execute high quality work in their respective fields of expertise.
I would highly recommend to anyone who is considering deck, front porch or siding work here on Angie's List. I am a thoroughly satisfied customer and will definitely call for any future work on my home.
