Point Deck Builders from people just like you.

"This company did a great job. When I initially contacted construction companies for my project, I only contacted people with "A" ratings. I like quality." The quotes I received ranged in prices of up to $6k. The people that I communicated with at the various construction companies all had different communication skills. The think that set
apart from the others, is the fact that he wanted to come check out the existing footing himself,, rather than rely on the fact that they were located in the correct position. My ex and I had poured footings back in 2004 when we remodeled our house. We just didn't have the cash to put a deck in place.
came to my house, measured the deck location, went over composite color choices, etc, with me as well as the railings. I ended up having
adjust his bid three different times during the deck builder
. Once was for an upgrade in the decking material,,, once was for a change in the style of alimunium railings, and finally,,, a change when I decided to go with the glass panels. Through out the process,
was very professional. The crew started on the day they stated, and made remarkable progress. The only thing that slowed them down was the fact that I ordered black satin railings, and these are custom order. So,, it took several weeks for the railings to arrive. Once the deck was complete,, and the city of
came for the final inspection, it passed with flying colors within 5 minutes. I love my new deck. It has been almost 20 years since I have had a deck. I enjoy sitting out side in the evenings or on the weekends just enjoying nature. I would definitely hire
for any building needs. Their crew was very proficient, professional, and courteous.

"I had previously had this company install all new siding and custom windows on my house. I was so pleased with their work that I decided to use them again to build" a deck on the back of my house. Owner
who I had worked closely with on all the renovations is a true professional and is a pleasure to work with. The actual work was performed by one employee,
. The fact that such a project could be undertaken by one person and done right made me a little nervous when he first started since composite decks are not common in my area but I found him to be completely knowledgeable about everything and (as are all the employees of
) a perfectionist. The weather was bitter cold but didn't see to phase
one bit. After a snowstorm in fact he shoveled out our driveway so he could continue to work. I purposely waited to submit this review until I could see how the deck is holding up. It's only been 7 months but it 's still as perfect as the day it was finished. People who see it rave over it...it really is beautiful. My one concern is the fact that the deck post lighting control is on the outside of the house (in an outlet plug) and I am worried about how that will be affected by the snow.
is aware of my concerns.and has assured me it will be fine. He has taken care of some window issues I had since they were installed (none of them the company's fault ) without hesitation so I know if a problem does arise it will be handled. I gave them a B for price because I may have been able to get the job done cheaper but I have found that you really do get what you pay for. I will be contacting them shortly in fact for a new door and siding on a large shed. A+ Company!!!

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.

& his workers removed the cross woods of the porch poles and remaining rails then they replaced them with new cross woods. Then they covered the porch with screen, when that was done they installed the lattice holders on the poles and placed the lattice securing the end with nails.

It went quite well. We had a few issues that came up along the way as is typical of a project of this size.
Point Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was consistently responsive to these issues and he doggedly followed through until the various problems were solved. We want to credit the company with some extraordinary creativity. Our original plan called for a 50 x 4 foot strip of land to be left unpaved for tree planting but we eventually discovered a gas line was there which prevented us from digging. We thought we would have to abandon the plan but MDS then came up with the idea of building a raised planter in which to place the trees with some accent lighting. The final product looks wonderful and is much better than our original plan. It was a brilliant solution and we are extremely grateful for it. We would also like to acknowledge the company's responsiveness when we had some warranty work that needed to be done months after the project was completed. We called
Point Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and within a week a crew arrived and took care of all the issues very satisfactorily. Our only complaint overall is that the project took longer than expected but this isn't the first time that has happened and some of the delay was due to circumstances that were unanticipated. MDS was also highly responsive to modifications of the project that came up along the way at our request and this accounts for some of the extra time.
In summary, these guys are attentive professionals who will follow through and provide a finished product that will probably exceed expectations.
- Rhonda F.

When I contacted them, I spoke with

. He was extremely professional and punctual throughout the entire process. My wife was home during the estimate and she told me that they were professional and that the pictures that they had were very helpful in seeing what they could do for us. They did an excellent job on our deck.

designed some beautiful built-in benches for the deck as well. And the deck is built for

. Rather than place the deck on some concrete support beams (which will eventually sink and heave), it is supported by concrete piling that goes over 5 feet into the ground. Very happy with the job!

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

- Natalie N.

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.
