"The job was done close to the time promised. The crew arrived at expected time and completed the job quickly . Did a great job in terms of clean up. Would use them again.

"Met
two times at my location for an estimate of what I want done. I even provided blue print plans and he said he would get an estimate" to me in 2-3 days, but when I didn't hear from him after a week I sent an email for inquiry. I never got a reply. If you say your going to do something (in this case give an estimate), then please keep your word. I would rather you just tell me that you can't do it, then to tell me something else (i.e.. a Lie) and then not do it.

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.

they gave us a quote and when the work got underway they discovered additional work that needed to be completed in order to make the deck structurally sound, they did not charge us since it wasn't in the original quote, but completed the additional work anyway. these are honest people.

We bought our home 5 years ago and have been wanting to replace the deck ever since. We finally had some extra money and this is exactly what we wanted to spend it on was a new deck. We knew it was not going to be cheap because I know they are not built in a

days. Our main problem is that we didn't really know what we wanted for colors and railing although we did know we wanted to use trex. When the estimators came out they were extremely friendly. What made it really nice was they had a form that they used to show us exactly what different options costed at their pricing. we chose to pair the trex decking with the trex railing and it turned out wonderful. we paid just under $20,000 by taking advantage of some of the discounts they offered during their visit. We Highly recommend this company and wish them the best!

It was nice not having to paint the new materials they hung up. The company hired good workers and they were not a nuisance. We had to pull every picture off the wall for them to do the job because of all the banging. The lawn was a mud swamp but they worked right through it and did there best to minimize the messiness. I liked the discounts they had and got right into the install schedule. Worked out great.

I love
Monroe Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and the rest of the team! They are just great. I can't say enough good things. They are always reasonably priced and some of the time almost too reasonable. For instance, if they quote you something and then it takes longer or is more difficult -- they don't change the price, but I make them raise the price! They are very honest. Keep in mind that they aren't designers when it comes landscaping. You do need to be specific with them as to what you want and they can accomplish it. They will fix anything you don't like though. They can help with design aspects related to, for instance, patios. I feel like I have personal relationship with them now since I've been hiring them for long.

Monroe Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew did an amazing job. I cannot stress enough now pleased I am with the deck. Top deck measures 14X12 and the bottom deck 12X12. They showed up when scheduled, worked until the job was finished and spared no detail. They exceeded my expectations, including with the price they charged, coming in below all of the larger companies I considered.
Do yourself a favor and use
