"They did an excellent job. They were very good. It was very reasonable. They did what they said they were going to do. They were on time and communicated well, and" it looks good. This is the second time we used them. We didn’t put it out for bids last time. We did it the time before so we knew his price.

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.

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.

?

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. 

?
?

While you can apply for an after-the-fact permit yourself, you risk a LOT - i.e. if you do not dot the i's and cross the t's just like they want, they might deny it and issue a removal order for it - not at ALL what you want. And you may not be looking at just the building permit, but a Planning and Zoning review andpossibly other types of permits like wetlands permits as well.

 

I would talk to an architect or civil/structural engineering firm who ROUTINELY does permit applications and waiver work. In many jurisdictions, a retroactive permit requires an inspection by a structural engineer (for this type of structure) and sign-off on the design and installation before the city will accept an after the fact permit application, so that might be your best starting point.

 

Regardless of the outcome, be prepared to pay the regulatory fine for building without a permit. And of course, if it violates P&Z regs like being too close to a property line, then you will also need to apply for a waiver for those violations, plus maybe pay a fine for not having gotten prior approval. Of course, if in violation of a non-waiverable condition, like infringing on wetlands or in a designated floodway it might have to come out anyway, so having a professional review your situation FIRST before putting money into trying to get permits and approvals (with any fines) might tell you removal is the only likely result anyway.

They were professional and did a careful job. They came when they said they would come. The weather intervened but they handled that appropriately. They had to do some minor repairs but the charge for that was very reasonable.

came out to my house to stain the deck and it went great! There is not a drop of stain on any surface other then the deck, there are several areas that required a pro to make sure it did not get on my wall.

It was horrible. There there was no evidence of sanding and when he applied the sealer stain I provided a can of my own stuff, which he did not return. I have 150lb pots, which he left in my yard. I had to ask him to come back to return the pots. He arrived with this son and they dragged the pots across my newly finished deck and broke the stands. Within 30 days of completing the deck treatment it began to mold and moss again.

I have a large cedar deck that encompasses more than 1,500 square feet, not including the railing and support slats. I had several companies come out to review my deck and bid on the job. Of the 4 bids I received, they ranged from $3,700 to $5,500 (please note these were from several very large companies around town that all receive "A" or "B" reviews from AngiesList and
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
extensively in the area). I was also informed that I would need the job redone after another 12-18 months.
It was at this point that I decided to take a
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and call
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
at "
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
." I was a touch reluctant at first since I wasn't sure if he was going to be able to take on a project this large. I called him and he was able to stop by that very day to thoroughly review the scope of work and offer his suggestions on an approach. We ultimately agreed on a price of $1,500 for the entire deck and playground set. He also allowed us to utilize his discount at HD so we could purchase all of the stain for the job, which he picked up the next morning before coming over. This discount alone saved us nearly $60 on materials. All-in, materials for this job added another $250 to my cost, which still put it nearly $2K less than the nearest other bid I received.
It took
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
nearly 6 days of 10-12 hour days to complete this job. He could have done it quicker but he insisted on hand-brushing every part of it; ensuring maximum absorption and quality. You can really tell that he cares deeply about the job that he's doing and is passionate about ensuring the customer is completely satisfied with his work. The deck looks awesome! I can't imagine it looking any better had I chosen one of the larger companies in the area. In fact, I'm sure it would have come out looking inferior to the work he did, no doubt I would have had a crew of disenfranchised teenagers out there with some of the other firms.
I highly recommend calling
Waynesville Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
out to get a quote from him before committing to one of the larger, more-established companies out there. He's incredibly honest and genuine and will do his best to ensure you are satisfied. Communication with him is seamless and his work ethic is to be admired. He truly enjoys what he does and it shows through his work.
