Raeford Deck Builders from people just like you.

"Being rather inexperienced on this type of exterior work, I made some mistakes that I believe cost me. The person who did the estimate is likable and persuasive" and I believe I arrived at a poor idea of the size of the job and its cost. The work that was done looks to be very good, but it turned out to be quick and easy. When I added up the price of the actual labor and materials (plus a reasonable overhead cost), it was far below the billed price. In the future I will expect detailed costs in any estimate, not just a lump figure. I was told that I can't get that (especially on relatively small jobs like mine), but I will insist on it. One other lesson, I think, is to work directly with a company whose only work is what you need, in this case exterior painting. Contractors just seem to add a lot of cost.


"The whole project took a bit longer then scheduled but we were totally satisfied with outcome, it looks great and
addressed all issues we" talked during the project. The owner of the company
went above and even beyond certain points to make sure that job done properly and everything is secure. Thank you

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.

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.

Assuming you buy the right size door to fit the rough opening, and that your old door is not a size that is no longer made, and that you get the correct depth and transition adapters and sills and flashing and trim and seals and such, and that you transport it home without distorting and damaging it, then removal and disposal of old one and install new one probably about $250-400 depending on how well it fits, number of transition and similar pieces that have to be assembled (from 1 or 2 for some doors to as many as 30 on others).

The laundry list of things at the start WAS intended to intimidate you - I would say not 1 in 25 homeowners who buy a new patio door have bought it the right size for the rough opening and have everything needed to install it - the contractor almost invariably has to go get materials or parts to complete the installation - sometimes waiting weeks for factory adapters that are needed or missing parts AFTER the original door has already been taken out.

I would question why you are going to probably spend as much installing a door that may not do the job for you as the cost of the door. I would hazard at least half of people who go buy a $250-400 cheap door at a box store are sorely disappointed within months - due to poorly fitted parts, bad or non-existent seals causing drafts or water leaks, fogging or breaking glass, etc.

I would recommend you assess your needs, in conjunction with your installer find a decent and reputable brand unit to fit that need and that fits the loction right, and probably pay 50% more installed but have something that you might actually be happy with. Oh - BTW - your best installers generally will not install the cheapest box store units because they do not want the callbacks, so many times the quality of the installer who will actually do the job for you at a price you are willing to pay gives you a job that is - you guessed it, worth what you paid for it.


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. 

Deck Building reviews in Raeford


From the very beginning everything was handled in a professional manner. The availability of an in-house designer was essential. Everything was explained and the project started and was completed on schedule. Questions were answered promptly, often after business hours. The quality of the work and products was excellent, and the results are beautiful.

was recommended to me by my daughter.

and the team installed a gorgeous screened-in patio and deck on her home, and I was more or less blown away. So when the time came that I needed my deck worked on, I knew who I would be calling.

My previous deck was basically rotting away, and it had gotten to the point where is wasn't just an eyesore, it actually seemed kind of dangerous. The boards were rotting, the posts had mold, the paint was chipping – in short, it was time for a replacement. I didn't need anything as grandiose as what my daughter had, I didn't need it to be redesigned, I just needed a replacement of what I already had - even though I would have actually preferred a bigger deck if city regulation had allowed for it.

came out and got a me quote right away. He and the team were professional, easy to work with and built exactly what I was wanting. All of his people cleaned up after themselves on a daily basis, which I sincerely appreciated.

The project was slightly delayed due to rain, but they always let me know what was going on through every step of the process. I would definitely hire them again, and, in fact, I am already planning to have them come stain the wood parts of the deck before winter. I highly recommend this company.

and his crew were extremely professional, pleasant and hard working. They listened and delivered above our expectations. Communication was topnotch. The deck is beautiful and we couldn't be more pleased.

is a true professional and everything he does is of excellent quality and thoughtfulness. We are delighted with the results and how quickly the job was done. He was extremely careful with protecting our plants, house and chimney and used painting tools and techniques to best suit our needs. His price was fair as well. When you are looking for paint or stain work it's tricky to compare quotes sometimes. The extensive prep

did (the most important part of the job) is not offered by many others.
- Ann F.

Bill and his crew were not only on time, but were always early on the job. We had an existing wooden deck that was not properly installed in the first place, replaced with new vinyl decking, lighting, railing and a stairway that had not been on the original deck. There was an existing concrete patio below the original deck that had posts that were improperly installed that had to be removed and new posts properly installed. Bill and his crew repaired the holes in the concrete that were left over from the old posts after the new posts were installed. Bill is very easy to work with and will explain every detail that he is going to do. Bill is meticulous in his work and will take his time to do it right. Our home looks 100% better now with our new deck. I am not doing Bill

was always there to answer questions and he was responsive to email communications. He and crew were friendly and I would use them for any future work and recommend them to others for similar projects.
The entire length of the project lasted 5 days and
Raeford Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was there most of the time to oversee the project. He has an eye for detail and the workmanship is second to none. An example is the cedar trim around the steps that really is a nice accent.
There were changes prior to the start and minor one during, but
Raeford Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was excellent in communicating all changes. Rating this company as a "A" was an easy decision based on what was stated previously. I would give him an A++ for responsiveness. We waited all summer for this deck project to be completed and we are not disappointed. He has a backlog of projects, but it is well worth the wait! He is the best for deck construction and it shows by his ability to listen to the customer and work with them every part of the project.

The owner stopped by each day to make sure I was satisfied with the work.
The workers especially concrete workers were top notch
