"These guys are extremely easy to work with, very eager to please, and honest to a fault. They are highly competent in most areas of construction, and, to a high" degree, their subcontractors are highly competent in their areas of specialty. The subcontractors are also very responsive to A&P. A&P gave me a good price relative to the several other quotes I received and stuck with that price, except where I requested changes, and in these cases, they and their subcontractors were very reasonable. We are extremely pleased with nearly everything A&P has done. The amazing thing is that they did the work with very little documentation. Very few drawings – only drawings that most designers might call to-scale sketches – were made, and I only saw one, un-detailed schedule – in an e-mail – which proved way too tight to keep up with. I will say that I did take it upon myself to obtain a $100 home-design software package and make a reasonably-complete, 3D design on the computer, which allowed me to better envision the project and to provide A&P with some additional drawings. I would highly recommend that anyone considering extensive construction work like this (by A&P or anyone else) either do a 3D computer design themselves or have someone do it for them.
of A&P has told me that he wants get into doing this himself, so this might not be an issue with them in the future. A detailed schedule (say in Microsoft Excel) that someone checks and updates regularly, and which is shared with the subcontractors, would also be very helpful. Very likely at least partially because of the lack of documentation, there were some things which were not completely satisfactory. There was an issue with the new garage floor not being well aligned with the adjacent basement floor, which might have been avoided if the layout of the slab had been completely documented beforehand. There were also some drainage issues, which resulted in some water getting in the original basement during the construction (some of my tools are rusted), and an issue with the new garage floor not lining up well with the driveway. A&P did take steps to at least partially fix these. I would definitely recommend thinking through all drainage and landscaping details beforehand so that it is completely clear what problems or extra expenses might be encountered. There were several other minor issues, most of which A&P has corrected or for which we were at least partially compensated.

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.

Overall, it went well but there were a few hiccups along the way. Both

and
Springfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
(wife and owner) are very nice to work with, and honest people to deal with. I was debating between going with composite railing or wood. We received the initial quote very quickly but I had a few questions concerning the exact products they were using for composite and it took about 2-3 weeks to get responses to my questions. (I understand that this is a very busy season for them. ) Even then, because of a bit of a language

, I wasn't completely confident in the responses I received. In the end I decided to go with pressure treated wood because of the price and because I knew what I was getting. I received an e-mail on a Sunday that they had an opening and they came Monday morning, much more quickly than I expected.

and a helper worked for two days and had the job done. After careful inspection, I had some concerns with some of the wood they had purchased from Home Depot - it had pieces missing from the sides and didn't look good. Also, in a couple of places things were not nailed on straight. When I brought it to

's attention, they immediately scheduled a time to come take a look and then fixed it at no extra cost. My only recommendation would be that they try to pay a little more attention to detail in the first place... I felt like they were rushing to get the job done but in the end it took longer because they had to come back and fix it. I am happy with the end result and I felt the price was definitely a good one!

I called for an estimate and got someone over the same day. Got an estimate via email shortly after. Got a good price and agreed to it. They set it up for Friday. Rain was in forecast so they just did the prep work which was cleaning and power washing. They would have to come later to seal since t looked like rain. It rained the next day , but they returned on Sunday morning to do the

They did an excellent job from the very beginning, Their advice on the design was skillful and artistic. They recommended, at no extra cost, edging the deck with a contrasting color (picture framing). This turned out quite nice. They gave me a start date and actually started early. This is the first time in my life that a contractor has done that. The President of the company showed up a day early to introduce himself (I had been dealing with a sales person) and make sure everything was in order. Wow! The men who worked on the job, particularly Min who was the lead carpenter, were very professional and nice to deal with. All of this included the best price verses several other folks who bid on the job. The job was completed in a timely manor with exceptionally high quality. I highly recommend them.

Ed arrived precisely at the appointed time to provide an estimate. The deck in question serviced an upstairs bedroom and was in really bad shape ... the railing was rotting and some of the deck boards were barely able to support weight, and the top of one of the support posts also had rot. The posts seemed okay where they disappeared into the lower deck, but some of the joists showed rot, as well. Unfortunately, they were cantilevered into the house and would have to be sawed off and attached to a

. Ed explained all the options, we talked about various types of decking (I wanted it to match, as close as possible, the material used on the lower deck, which he told me was no longer used. I also asked that the railing approximate the railing on the lower deck (metal bars anchored in cedar rails). Ed said he could do all of that and told me he would send an estimate later that afternoon, but guessed that the cost would be about $2500. He called, as promised, and confirmed that his rough estimate was correct. He also said he could pick up the material and start the job the next Monday (it was Saturday), and be done by Tuesday. I was very pleased with that news ... the bid was competitive with all but one other bid I had been given (and that one lower bid was from a painter who was bidding on a paint job for the entire house). I am of the school that I would rather have a deck guy build my deck than a painter, and being done by Tuesday rather than waiting a month to have the job start was an added bonus. I said "yes."
Ed arrived on Monday morning promptly.
Springfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
accompanied him. The two went directly to work. They were efficient, fast, and very professional. Ed encouraged me to watch, and explained every step of the process if I asked. He showed me all the materials he was using and explained why he used them instead of materials. The rot on the upper posts and in the decking was worse than we thought, but a real problem emerged when the whole deck was down ... the rot was really bad where the railing had been attached, and it seemed that there was also rot at the base of the posts. We discussed multiple options for addressing that problem, and agreed to take up some of the main deck in order to better see what was going on. Oops. The posts needed to be replaced. We again discussed options, agreed on a couple of alternatives, and he began calling around to see which lumber stores might have two 16' posts on hand. After knowing what was available, we again discussed options and prices, and made a decision. Ed called the store back and ordered two posts. He cleaned up, went to the store to pick up the posts and router the edges to round them off (to match the posts on the main deck), promising to be back the next day at 8:00 AM to finish.
He and
Springfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
returned the next morning ... at 8 ... and went right to work. They were done by 2:30 or 3. Again, whenever I expressed an interest, he and
Springfield Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
explained what they were doing and answered all of my questions. My wife had a doctor's appointment and we had to leave at 2:00. I left a check for the new total (additional charges for the two posts and the additional time to prep and install them ... as we agreed the day before) before they were finished. When we came home, they were gone. The job was finished, and everything cleaned up nicer than before they arrived. They had offered to leave the wood behind, if I wanted to burn it, but I asked them to haul it. Other than a very attractive (and strong) deck in place of the old rotten one, there was hardly a sign they had been there.
This was a very satisfactory experience, and I highly recommend Ed to anyone needing a deck. He is very good at what he does, but is also resourceful and more than able to adjust and adapt to whatever turns up.

From start to finish, our experience with

was exceptional. We met with several companies before choosing them and we did not make our choice based solely on price but because

had such professionalism and really took the time to answer all of our questions and changed the design countless times. I had fears because you always hear horror stories about how projects go with contractors but we honestly have nothing negative to say about our experience with them. The quality of the work they provided is superb and everyone that worked on the project that came to our house was always respectful and cleaned up after themselves every day.

made sure to keep us in the loop every day with what was going on and if there was something he felt might look better than what we had originally planned, he would offer his opinion and discuss it with us, not just do what on the drawings. That showed us that they truly care about the work they are providing and not just the money. we've had countless compliments on the deck and even the inspector from the county was so impressed she wanted their information so she could refer them to a friend. We wish they did electrical/ plumbing and all of that stuff because we would use them for everything!

The day went seamlessly. Materials arrived at 7:30 AM as did Nick. The crew arrived and were ready to begin at 8:00.
The operation was like clockwork, they came with everything they needed, to do the job. They completely cleaned up (swept and washed) the area and hauled away all garbage. By late afternoon we were able to entertain on our gorgeous deck!
We were extremely pleased and got rave reviews from our family and neighbors on this project!!
