"It went better than I ever could have expected, except for the fact that I missed my initial appointment, but they were very forgiving. They exhibited absolute" professionalism and quality in all areas of customer service, design and construction skills, builders, and communication. I changed my mind about the design a few times during the design process, and they quickly came back with the revisions each time. There was a bit of delay with the start of the project due to an illness with one of builders, but they went above and beyond to remedy this situation and had another person out to start the project within a few hours. The project was completed on schedule and I could not be more pleased with the look of my new front steps. They look great and are solidly built just as one would hope, but it is their other qualities in customer service and honesty that I am so impressed with. This company should be the standard that all others should strive for. I strongly recommend this company.

"Fantastic.
and his crew stripped old, rotten decking to the footings and completely rebuilt the deck. The finished product was awesome." They did a great job. Pricing was vary fair. The work was done as scheduled and they finished ahead of time. The old deck material was removed and the area left cleaner than it was before they started. Overall great experience. Would highly recommend
for anyone looking for a high quality deck.

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.

?

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. 

?
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.

has not returned to my home to do any work. This company has been holding our $3120 down payment (50% of the total cost of $6,240) for more than six months and has not returned our calls. They have our money, provided no services or supplies and we are without a serviceable/safe deck. We are using N/A for the "quality" of their work because there has been no work done to assess the quality of a final product.

Jefferson Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
created a beautiful design, brought me samples of a few different materials, and called around to get the best price on exactly what I wanted. He put in low walls to hold in the gravel, creating a very modern zen look which was exactly what I was going for. He contributed other ideas too, such as rearranging some brownstone I had into an attractive low wall (which he did not charge me to do). The end product was much more beautiful than I had even imagined!! He also suggested moving my back door so it opened directly onto the deck so I hired him to do this job as well. This was a great upgrade and I'm glad he suggested it as it never would have occurred to me. He works quickly and thoughtfully to get your projects done so you can enjoy them. He's also very easy going so it is not stressful to have him working at your house. I highly recommend him!

In the mean time I called other contractors from Angie's List and was able to get bids from them. I total I called Cascade 8 times. I never received a call back. I at first thought that he was not working because of the holidays. if so his voice mail should have stated that. The holidays are over and still no call. Cascade does great work, but their customer service is lacking.

They showed up right on schedule, worked quickly, and left the site very clean. The new deck is beautiful. The price quoted was a very good one - other companies offered prices from $10,000 to $14,000 for the job. One smaller company declined to bid - the job was too big for him to handle.
Jefferson Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
offered an additional off-season discount, for work done during the winter (his slow season) on a when-available basis. I accepted this, and was a little surprised that it delayed the job by two months. It must be a good thing for them to have that much work in their slow season! The delay wasn't a problem - we don't have a lot of use for the deck in December and January - and once they started the job, they worked at it (even through a brief snowstorm!) until it was finished. The whole job was done in three days - one to demolish the old deck and two to build the new one.
As I mentioned, the new deck is beautiful. We couldn't be more pleased.
