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.

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.

It was really straightforward. We had approached 3 vendors for this job.
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
had the ideal combination of knowledge & experience, location & price. He was upfront with us on the scheduling of his resources and explained to us how and when the job would get done.
The team came over to do the powerwashing at their convenience and with our approval. It worked out well for us.
They completed the painting to our specifications - stopping to give us detailed explanations if we had questions. They were neat and careful and made sure to cause the least disturbance. The job was exceptional and I will recommend them to anyone needing this service.

I hired Deckmasters to strip, repair and stain 3 decks at my home -- a small deck on the top level and 2 large decks on the main and lower levels of my home. I am very pleased with the quality of the work. My decks look beautiful and the price was fair. The only problem was in the scheduling of the work. They did not show up on the date promised, claiming that weather was an issue when it was not. Also there was a delay because they couldn't get the wood they needed to make the repairs. Then the wood suppliers showed up at my house unexpectedly and dumped the wood in my driveway. To their credit, the Deckmasters workers came to my house and moved the wood. I had to nag them to get the work done because whenever there was the slightest
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
of rain reported by the weather forecasters, they would not show up.
In the end, however, I was very pleased with the work. My deck is beautiful; it looks even better than I expected. I would recommend Deckmasters, despite the delays.

I live in the
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
, OH area and needed some significant trim repair and painting done on my house. I researched painters and carpenters on Angie's List pretty carefully, and selected 4 or 5 of what I considered the best to come out and give me an estimate. My first and most important criterion was quality.
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
Painting was on this list, although they are currently based in Indianapolis. I chose them because of the nature of their reviews and in particular their focus on quality and detail orientation. Of the contractors I called,
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the quickest to get out and give me an estimate, they were at least (if not more) professional in
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and demeanor than the others, and
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
took as much time as any of the others to walk around and develop an estimate.
I had some (natural) reluctance at the thought of using a service based in Indianapolis, but
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
(the owner) and
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
came back out to address some additional questions I had about the job, and in talking with him he explained why they are now developing in the Columbus
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He also assured me (and it is true) that the people he uses for jobs here in Ohio are the same people he uses in Indiana...they simply travel and do work here. After reviewing the different estimates and my interactions with the different contractors, I felt that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team would do the best job for me.
I am very happy with the work that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team did. I have a fairly large house with lots of trim and surface area. I also had a lot of trim that needed to be replaced, including some larger 4' x 9' panels in front of my house. As they continued to do work, they found (as often happens) other trim panels that needed replacing and
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed me these areas (and I suspected there was going to be a lot as well). The carpenters and painters that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought to the job did a great job. They were personable, had a strong quality orientation, were very professional and friendly, and cleaned up the area after each day. One of my initial concerns (and one that I mentioned to
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
during the estimate phase) was that the quality that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
insisted on (and takes pride in) might be harder to achieve here since I'm in a different state. Well, that wasn't the case at all.
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
was here himself quite a bit of the time, supervising and making sure everything went well. If
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
wasn't here, either
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
or
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
were here to do the same. During the job (it took about four days),
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
would check in with me at the end of each day to make sure I was happy with the work that had been done, and to ask if I had any questions. At the end of the job (and before accepting any payment) he also did a thorough walkaround with me to review the work. Last but not least, he assured me that if I caught anything that hadn't been done, that he wanted me to call him and he would make sure it was taken care of.
In sum, I am very happy with the work that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
performed. When reading the other reviews for
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
it was hard for me to tell if any were outside of Indiana, and as a result I had some initial concerns about receiving the same quality of work and customer focus. IF YOU ARE A COLUMBUS RESIDENT, let me assure you that my experience with
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
team wa basically the same as the other great reviews you read on Angie's List. Put another way, if I didn't know better I wouldn't have been able to guess that
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team are based out of Indiana.
I had a great experience with
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
and found
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
as a person to be a great balance of professional, focused but also very friendly and fundamentally a good and nice guy. I'm a pretty good judge of character, and
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a person of good character. I'm also very handy as a DIYer and very detail- and quality-oriented myself, and I was happy with the work they did. I would (and will) be working with
Cleveland Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the future and am quite happy to recommend them strongly on Angie's List.

We chose DAL for experience and responsiveness. Their original quote was not the lowest, but seemed to be the most thorough for what we wanted for our building, which was maintenance and repair of 4 decks. DAL was very clear that there could be additional costs once the demo process began, as we did not know what the underlying structural condition would be. It became clear upon demolition that we would require a complete rebuild. The cost to do a complete rebuild with DAL was very high compared to another contractor that works exclusively on decks. As a result, we cancelled the remainder of the project and paid for the work DAL had completed. They were easy to work with and very fair when we cancelled the remainder of the contract. DAL just wasn't competitive with another contractor that only does the type of deck work we needed.

I was informed about a couple of shingles that were missing. I was very thankful because I had just had roofing people out 6 months before to repair a missing shingle and they were supposed to do a complete check of the roof (which they obviously did not do). I was able to get the roofing company to come back and check the entire roof and replace missing shingles.
Our house is clean and in good shape for the winter.
