did a amazing job on our siding replacement project. I can't even recoginize my house anymore. Every time I pull up to my house I" think I am at the wrong place. The siding looks great and we went with a
fiber cement board. we will recommend this company to our friends and family. They weren't the cheapest but we had a lot of faith that they would do it the right way and not take shortcuts

"
was backed up with a lot of other jobs, but the reason was clear. His workmanship and professionalism were excellent, and the price was more" than fair. FLEXIBILITY is definitely an attribute of this company. They worked with me to allow my own installation of tile floor and paint jobs in between periods of their work. This allowed me to save a lot of money by doing some of the work myself. This is not something that every contractor will do.
was very accessible though cell phone and email, and every concern was adequately addressed. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of their work. Using J&B Construction for your project is something that you will not regret!

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.

The company was great! Our decking was installed and looked fantastic. We will be using them in the future as we have moved to a new house and will be adding a deck in the future.

He showed up to do the job on time as promised. He stayed in contact with me after the estimate was given to ensure all my needs were met. Once I accepted his estimate the time and date were set and he arrived on time with all required tools and equipment needed to complete the job.
He was professional and very courteous to me and my family....More /> The job was completed quicker that estimated and a quality that I require.
He even went the extra step to run water in them to show me that they would drain.
Would definately recommend

Everything went well. Cavalier described the scope of work and gave me a cost estimate and a "not to exceed" estimate and every time I've used them they delivered on their promise. I also appreciated their honesty in that during one occasion I asked for work to be done and they said that was not in their area of expertise. I'd much rather have someone be honest with me and do what they say they will do and if they can't do it, to let me know. Cavalier is definitely that company.

I really don't think I will purchase one of these "deals" again from Angie's List. We really got absolutely nothing for it. I thought we would get a design and that didn't happen. If we would have continued to negotiate our plans with this contractor, maybe it would have

After contact three deck builders, we decided to go with keystone. Not only because their competitive price tag, but also because keystone is the only one who provided us a visual 3D file about what our deck would look like.(it turns out that the final project is very close to the 3d picture they provide). The whole project took them almost 6 days due to some weather condition. I am so impressed by their courtesy, punctuality, and wonderful craftsmanship. Thank you keystone, your hardworking brings me one of the best decks in my community, I would recommend keystone to all my friends!

The entire experience was great, they came over a few times to look at our existing deck/space and discuss ideas. They listened to us but also offered their thoughts & suggestions. They showed up on time everyday, even worked in the pouring rain. The deck is stunning, we are beyond happy, we would definitely use

was punctual, caring and professional. He showed up on time for estimates and installation. He listened to and responded to all of our questions before estimating the work and again before starting the work. He completed the projects with minimal mess and/or commotion for our family. He has been careful to confirm our satisfaction before he finishes his work.
