"They cut out the rotten floorboards and replaced them with new wood, making a perfect fit into the remaining original wooden flooring. They also took off all the" rotten railings and spindles and replaced them with composite material which looks better than the wood originals and better yet, will never need repainting or repair. Lastly, the rotten wooden columns were removed and replaced with tapering fiberglass columns which look identical to the wooden originals but are permanent and will never rot or need repainting or repair. Because my house was built in 1870, most surfaces are uneven and nothing is exactly level, but
worked with the wood so that it all looks picture perfect. When I was taking too long to decide on what style railings and spindles I wanted,
sent me specific examples, and when I couldn't figure out the columns, he found exactly what I had described. All work was done expertly and timely. As important as the quality of the work was the reasonableness of the cost;
's bid was literally a fraction of the competing bids. Best of all, the entire crew was friendly, pleasant, and immaculate.

"The problems were ours, no theirs. We had a difficult time selecting colors, since we needed three. They were very helpful and patient thru several trial and errors," returning to complete the job as soon as the proper stain was selected. We were pleased both with the work and the way they treated us.

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.)

Keep your home clean inside and out by hiring a pro to pressure wash your home's siding and get your deck ready for spring.

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.

finished the job yesterday (
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
30, 2015), and I have to say...it looks even better than I had hoped! The work crew did a fantastic job with every aspect of the work, which included 1.) Tearing out the old stairs and upper & lower decks, 2.) Rebuilding the same, including replacing a large support beam, 3.) Staining all the wood, 4.) Painting where needed, 5.) Replacing the stepping stones and wood leading up the driveway to the stairs, 6.) Installing a new gutter around the upper deck to ensure proper water drainage, and 7.) Sanding and refinishing the entire back deck. It was a lot of work, and it took about two weeks for total completion.
Upon hiring
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner (
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
) came out to provide an estimate. He was very detailed and pleasant to work with, and explained everything in terms I would understand. I could quickly tell he knew what he was doing. At various points he also gave me options on the work: I could use a less-expensive method of construction or materials, or more expensive. He was good at pointing out the pros and cons of each, and didn't pressure me at all to choose the more expensive options. He seemed to understand that different people are working with different budgets, and his recommendations allowed for both. Oh,
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
was also very good about explaining the required
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
legal paperwork associated with jobs over a certain dollar threshold. As a legal professional myself, I appreciate the fact that
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
handles his business "by the book". (Many other contractors don't.) Overall his professionalism was outstanding.
I should also mention...I tried to get bids from two other contractors as well, but
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
was the first to respond. Those other two contractors finally got back to me only after I had already hired
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
, and a full week after the work had already started! Reminds me of the phrase "You snooze, you
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
." The bids I finally got from those other contractors were less expensive, but honestly, after seeing the completed work I'm now GLAD those other contractors were slow to respond. I might have hired one of them otherwise, and I doubt they would have done as good of a job as
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
did.
I can recommend
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
without reservation, and will certainly use them again in the future.

The owner,
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
, was very professional in his dealings with me. We set a firm date for the work, and he and his crew showed up at my door right on time. The job took two days and consisted of sanding and repainting the deck, as well as replacing several boards which were rotten. I was not charged for several additional boards that also had to be replaced, that were not in the original proposal. I am very happy with the results and would have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend

and his company. He deserves an A+ as far as I'm concerned.

We communicated via email. I sent him pictures of our deck and he responded with a quote which was quite reasonable. After a short weather delay, Barack arrived and thoroughly pressure washed our deck. He helped us select a stain color and returned a few days later to finish the job. We could not be more pleased with the results. The original cost was estimated at $750 but Barack reduced the price because he said there was less work involved than he had anticipated. This was a very pleasant surprise. Barack is an honest man who does an excellent job. Of course we will contact him again when our deck needs to be re-stained.

I'm very happy with the results. I had limited times when the work could be done and

worked around my schedule and weather to get the job completed. He was on time or early for every appointment and kept in close contact as we were trying to get the work scheduled. He and his team were very careful taping off and controlling overspray of the stain. I'm really happy with the work.

We have a large deck.
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
came out last month and pressure washed the deck one day, and within the following day or two stained our deck. Unfortunately we had a downpour the evening that we had the deck stained. We had many water spots on it and were not satisfied with the way the deck looked after it dried. We called and left a message, and that day we received a call back letting us know that when the weather cleared up they would be back. Yesterday they returned and not only sanded the deck but also restained it. They were very professional and did an amazing job. (Thank you
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
and

They did a beautiful job once they got around to finishing. The only complaint I have is, when I bought the deal they told me they would powerwash one day and stain the next day. They didn't stain until one week later and were not forthcoming regarding when they would complete the job.
The workers were very courteous but they trampled my ferns by the side of

Called for an appointment and Rusty came out and looked at the newly installed decks and told me what needed to be done. Purchased the Big Deal for the deck restoration through Angies List and had to wait because of all the rain had backed logged his team. The first time they called I was out of town attending my youngest daughter's wedding. A week later another call and scheduled for the following day. Two day process and the crew was extremely courteous and professional. Did not want to come into and through the house but because they did not have their 30 foot ladder on the truck there was no choice. The next day

and crew were back with their 30 footer. Any and all questions were answered. Great group to have working for you. Would use again.

My experience with

started with a visit from

who arrived on time as promised.
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
spent the time to explain what needed to be done on my new cedar deck. He brought cedar wood stain samples to make it easier to choose the color for our deck.
Auburn Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
was very professional. The power wash crew came a week earlier than originally promised (a good thing). The crew was very attentive to the landscaping surround the deck. A cleaner and brightener was applied by the power wash crew to prepare the deck for it's fresh coat of stain. The staining crew arrived three days later after the deck had time to dry in the warm summer sun. Again, the staining crew was very attentive to the landscaping surrounding the deck. They also were extremely careful not to get stain on the house or adjacent concrete. The crew of three stainers got right to work with each member of the team knowing their specific job. When they were finished the deck looked fantastic. Other than the obvious new stain on our deck, you would have never known the crew had been at my residence. My experience with

and ALL of their employees was fantastic. Service "after the sale" is also exceptional. Highly recommended.
