"
answered my original call and came out personally to give us an estimate. He was on time, very knowledgable and overall just a really nice" guy. We weren't sure what we wanted to do and
gave us great suggestions for both our back patio and front walkway. He prepared the quote very quickly and came in under other quotes we had gotten. He gave us a start date and said that he'd have it done in about a week. I have to say that I thought that was an ambitious and possibly unrealistic goal but, true to his word, it was done within a week of when they started.
was on site often during the week and was very easy to get in touch with when questions came up. His crew was polite, very skilled, and left the job super clean. We were thrilled with every aspect! After the job was done we realized that the electrical outlets on the patio extension were a little off from where they needed to be to accommodate the kitchen that was being delivered in two days! We panicked and called
. He had his electrician out at our house the next day to make the correction! It is rare these days to find someone who truly understands customer service AND does excellent work. I would recommend
to any one. In fact, my brother just had his patio extended and loved
's work as well.

"This is the second job that
did for me.
answered all of my questions and kept to the schedule once the job was started." The job included a 570 square foot patio and two small decks of 30 square feet each with steps leading down to the patio. I was provided options for the colors of the base and contrast and got exactly what I wanted. Neighbors and friends were so impressed they asked for contact numbers to have quotes done for them. Everything went very well and the results were spectacular. I could not be happier and
will be the first company I call for any additional work around my house.

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.

As good as it gets from start to finish. Options and details were initially clearly outlined and explained. The work was completed on time, quickly and with the utmost professionalism. A minor issue months after the job was completed and the check had cleared was quickly responded to. You can't go wrong with Stellar Deck's owner/operator

It went very well. We were very happy with the results and especially the floor. He did a much better job on the floor than I thought was possible. But the best and greatest features were that he actually called us back, showed up on time, did the work, and even rearrangd his schedule to accommodate us; when we were around and available. There are a lot of contractors out there that won't even call you back. So "yes" we are happy with their work and will hire them again in the future.

.' The work went well. He was always on time and worked a full day. Should there be a change in plans on the time there was always a courtesy call prior to any changes etc, But that was rare, he worked on the project until it was completed and you were satisfied with the work and again worked a full day. We were very satisfied with his work and would work with him again.

Although there was some confusion on the time of the appointment, they came as soon as they were aware that I was expecting them. They gave me a comprehensive overview of my deck which was very helpful. They also made some great suggestions on improving my deck. When I told them that I wanted to find the most cost effective option, they were very straightforward with suggestions for me. They even mentioned that they would probably be pricier than I than I could find elsewhere due to the small scale of the work needed. I value the honesty and professionalism of

We had
La Vista Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
come to our home and provide an estimate to place a Roof over our deck. The Designer was very knowledge answered questions gave suggestions and had many pictures to see different styles. He provide us a price and when the project was completed the price was what he stated. Our installation guys were great they even had guys that dropped off materials and cleaned up through out the project.

Our new roof will increase our spring, summer and fall living space and make a great place to entertain guests and family. With the added roof it won't matter what the weather I can still use my deck.

The workers were extremely professional, on time, and were enthusiastic to do the work for me in a timely matter. They were very patient in answering any questions I had about the work and made sure that I was completely satisfied. The wood flooring and carpeting in my rooms look absolutely beautiful! However, the porch is the real masterpiece and I love that everyone in the neighborhood can see how fantastic it looks! The overall outstanding positive attitude and work ethic they display to their customers, excellent craftsmanship, expedient work, and great price makes it easy for me to recommend them to my friends and family. I will definitely be using them again for my future endeavors in home improvement!

Main project went pretty well. Guys were there working on the property as expected and work went pretty smoothly. We are happy overall with the quality of the deck, but still have issues with the RainEscapes product that was applied to keep water from coming in below the deck. Have contacted them numerous times to address the situation without being resolved. Be careful to also ask that your information is not provided to the owners father who likes to send you solicitations for investment advice. Generally, these guys did a good job, but lack of professionalism and followup have soured our overall impression.
