and his team were punctual, courteous, and professional during the entire job. They took out a window in my living room and enlarged the opening to fit a sliding" patio door. Then they built a 15x12 deck with composite decking and a vinyl railing.
installed some very nice lattice around the deck and also installed some doors that allow me to store things under the deck.
communicated with me during the whole job and listened to my concerns. They cleaned up after themselves each and every day and did a good job cleaning up after the job was completed. We are very happy with the finished product and have received a lot of compliments on the deck. I wouldn't have any problem referring
to my friends and family.

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 porch and driveway look nice but, he left standing water on the little deck. It dried partly with a dingy finish. I have to wash it and sweep the standing water away for it to look a bit better. All in all, he did a good job.

King confirmed the appointment.

arrived as scheduled and got right to work. He quickly replaced the kitchen faucet. Then painted the soffit and fascia with time to spare. So I asked him to get the hardware he needed and secure a porch railing. Since he worked more than four hours and purchased some parts, the total amount was higher than the special. He accomplished more than I expected and did excellent work at a reasonable price. I recommended

This project came in at budget, and was completed on time.
Brimfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
is a busy guy, but he personally handled the details of the project and was very fair, reasonable, and accommodating as the scope of the project became very dynamic, as we added and changed along the way. The porch is now the envy of the neighborhood, and while I waited over a year to write this--I wanted to see if any of it would fall apart, or leak, and really, everything has been great.

I hired Deckmasters to strip, repair and stain 3 decks at my home -- a small deck on the top level and 2 large decks on the main and lower levels of my home. I am very pleased with the quality of the work. My decks look beautiful and the price was fair. The only problem was in the scheduling of the work. They did not show up on the date promised, claiming that weather was an issue when it was not. Also there was a delay because they couldn't get the wood they needed to make the repairs. Then the wood suppliers showed up at my house unexpectedly and dumped the wood in my driveway. To their credit, the Deckmasters workers came to my house and moved the wood. I had to nag them to get the work done because whenever there was the slightest

of rain reported by the weather forecasters, they would not show up.
In the end, however, I was very pleased with the work. My deck is beautiful; it looks even better than I expected. I would recommend Deckmasters, despite the delays.
