"Everything went really well--ahead of schedule, on budget, wonderful people to work with, and the end result is fabulous. Mitica really knows how to work with Ipe" (tricky wood to work with); his website describes this specialty and has plenty of pictures of work he's done. I appreciated the suggestions he made for design (e.g. blocking, bronze instead of black aluminum, adding a face board to the upper deck, etc.) He gave me his bid the day he came to see the project (other contractors took over a week to send me a bid). he was very responsive, professional and pleasant. Highly recommend!

"When
first came out to our home a couple weeks ago we had no clue what to expect. Needless to say we were beginners to the whole decking" thing. All we knew about decks were that we had a old rotten cedar deck and it was time for a new one. The one thing we didn't want to worry about again was maintaining the deck because I think we have proven that we just won't. Two younger gentleman came to our door and really educated us on the process. They brought samples, showed us pictures of different options on the iPad and dreamed up a amazing deck plan. After choosing the materials we wanted we started talking about pricing and we quickly realized this was going to be a much bigger expense than we had imagined. This all made sense because we were going with a Trex deck and we knew the construction wasn't going to be done overnight either these things take time. Since we couldn't afford the lump sum the company went over some excellent financing options with us. We knew that we were going to make a large payment with our taxes so they offered me a one year same as cash option. The payments were well within our budget, we get to enjoy the deck of our dreams, and we get to pay for it over the next year with no interest. This project couldn't have went any better! Pictures to come!

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.

He is exceptional. When I need something he comes over to get done. He is honest and a hard worker. He has a really good eye for what the finished product will be. He re-did my daughter’s floor and suggested something that looks great. I have used him since 2011. The price was very reasonable.

When he said he was coming, he came. He did really good work. He did all the work himself -- he had no helpers. He was a very hard worker. He was very communicative with us, as well. Toward the end of the project, I think he missed a few finishing nails and he forgot to put locks on the gates, but we took care of that ourselves.

answered the phone and was very nice and proceeded to help with scheduling an appointment but informed me there is a $75.00 fee for coming out to give estimate although it can be applied to the job. I explained that doesn't seem fair as I am spending thousands on this project and to charge shows a lack of interest in getting a job that could be thousands in profit. As well as that's not customer friendly because any person would at least get 3 different estimates and that could be 500.00 alone if everyone charges. I also believe this could lead to more little charges here and there ....Ill go with someone who wants my business and not someone I have to pay to take my business - she agreed with my point of view and hung up. I also told her it said free on Angie List.

It was the single most useless act ever to have money spent on. The deck has started breaking and has faded to look older than the house. The color we wanted on the outside looks like a

He has not and will not respond to calls to come fix his mess. He left the paint outside that was used to paint the house ruining 10 gallons of it. The roof has to be fixed in numerous spots and the fascia that was removed and repainted has come off in low winds. He also goes by the name b&b remodeling
