"I originally had a 20 x 16 shop built by
's
Construction, and as my needs rapidly changed and I needed to double it's size" and add some design enhancements with an overhead door to allow for larger equipment.
was again my choice to do the work, as my first experience from pricing to schedule to quality had been excellent, and the quote for this job was appropriate. The shop extension job was also done just exactly as promised, on schedule, with great quality. You would never know the original shop was modified to double it's size.
's crews and personnel were professional, and courteous,
again closely oversaw all aspects of the project. I have personally recommended
's
Construction to others and to commercial requests for reference, and will continue to do so. I could not be more pleased with the work performed by
Construction. My next project is in the planning stages, and I will be looking to continue my business relationship with
construction when I'm ready to have it built.

"The work was done over about a three week period. It went pretty smoothly. All the work looks great, and seems well done. The master carpenter,
, did very" nice work on the front porch, retaining wall/steps, and fence. There were a couple of minor spots where they had to come back and touch up the trim paint around a window, which they did promptly when I pointed it out. There was minor damage to some bushes around the house, which is understandable since the bushes were badly overgrown. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up after themselves and pressure-washed the concrete driveway.

"Chaz and
were INCREDIBLE. Both of them were so knowledgable, nice, prompt, and speedy. The job was completed far under the budget I had expected, and with perfect" results. I wasn't sure the railing was going to be able to work on the front of my house because the feet had rusted, but Chaz was able to find a solution and my railing is extremely steady. I also had some very heavy, unusual items to hang which they were able to do in under 30 minutes. They were very responsive leading up the the project and on-time. I can't recommend them highly enough and continue to use their services. It's been difficult being a homeowner alone as a girl, especially with a fixer-upper like mine. I feel like most of the jobs I've hired people to do have come with a lot of inappropriate comments and a "creepy vibe." I don't often like having people in the home alone, especially men.
and Chaz were a great team sensitive to that need for sure, I never felt uncomfortable or "weirded out" as I so often have with other people who have come to work on my home. They were great! The jobs were done quickly and at an amazing price.

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.

This was a long process as I needed to get the design approved by my
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. Following approval I worked with Nkosi Brown and
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
to figure out which color scheme and railing system to use. After all that was done, they sent out an incredible crew that worked all weekend long demolishing my old deck, replacing or reinforcing the deck supports, replacing it with composite material, putting up a cable railing system. They even worked to replace a couple pieces of trim that were displaced by the old deck. Even better, they sanded the top rail and painted it with matching color to my house trim! The excellence is in the details! My new deck looks better than I had imagined.

The job went great. We first got a quote from another vendor and they wanted me to supply the custom stain color (which we no longer had and couldn't contact the original painter who did it to get the color). Additionally, their quote was TWICE what
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Paint & Roofing quoted me! Needless to say, we didn't use them. Then we called
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Paint & Roofing. These guys were prompt, courteous, and professional. They did a great job refinishing all the wood and matched the custom stain color perfectly. They told me when some of the water stains and/or scratches might not come out completely and I appreciated the honesty. However, the water stains are barely noticeable. They really made everything look like new again. We encountered 2 issues, and both were promptly and professionally handled. One, was that one of the workers said that they would return the next morning, and he didn't. I did have to call, but when they called me back, they were very apologetic and immediately got someone else to come later that day and were trying to put another team together to finish the job on time, which it was. The other issue was that one screen got damaged when they removed the protective covering, but they took care of it right away and got it fixed. I would definitely recommend
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
Paint & Roofing for the quality of their work, their value, and their treatment of their customers.

It went beautifully. The weather held up and the job was completed within about 2-1/2 days. I can't say enough good things about
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his attention to detail and about his determination to do exactly what was requested by me, the customer. I would spring little tweaks and expansions to the project on him and he took it in stride and with patience. In one instance, he himself decided to make double sure that two certain spots on the back patio were reinforced with more concrete so that a future patio cover would be substantially secured.

Everything went great. We had several estimates performed in
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
2014 in connection with the painting of the exterior of our home.
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
provided us with a free estimate and a detailed written proposal. We hired Mr.
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
based on the cost relative to the work proposed as well as the level of professionalism exhibited by him during our first meeting. He gave us an estimated start date of Mid-October 2014. He kept in touch with me throughout the summer, and, due to better than expected weather, was able to move our start date to the end of September. The job took exactly as long as he said it would. He and his employees arrived on time, and were polite and lovely to deal with. Our house looks great and we could not be more pleased with the results. We would absolutely hire him again and would recommend him without reservation.

They were unresponsive to problems I had afterwards. I was not very happy about it. They were some hairline cracks in the concrete, which I pointed out to him before he ever did it. He said not worry because they grounded those out and filled them with epoxy of some sort that is expandable. They put the surface over it. One of the cracks reappeared and opened up pretty badly. He came back and had his guys grounded it out again but never came back and refilled it. It was a very speculate breakthrough this lab through the topping. One area is highly conspicuous. I had the patio pressure cleaned because we had mildew. It was popping off due to the pressure cleaner. Now, it’s going to be a problem the next time we have to have it pressure cleaned. In this planet, you get a lot of mildew; it’s an issue you have to deal with from time to time. I would too if I’d still be able to do it. That’s disappointing. It did not worked out satisfactorily.

When we first called
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(M.E.) we reached there office where there receptionist took our information down answered a couple of our questions. They let us know that the owner was in another appointment right now and he would contact me when he was done
Sure enough one hour later I received a call and we scheduled up a time for my husband and myself to meet with him. He was extremely helpful and meausered up all of the windows in our home. We prioritized a couple different options and ended up going with the whole house because of the volume discount. they were great and showed us how their windows differ from some of the others we have seen on the
Chicopee Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
. We were in love. We ordered them up that day and they let us know that our windows would be installed within 3-5 weeks as they will be getting custom ordered. The install was complete and they walked us around the house and showed us how they operate. I have reffered them to multiple friends and family.

Replaced all of our siding on the outside of our seattle home including the soffits and the trim. The crew was extremely helpful and did a excellent job with our home. The crew worked hard and was on time every single day which amazed me because I was late to work twice that week :(. These guys are really top notch
