"Let me start off by saying that the actual work completed looked good - my main issue was that the estimation process was so vague that it required me to be home the morning I got the work done to explain again to the actual work crew doing the work. Unfortunately, the crew arrive 1-1.5 hours AFTER their scheduled arrival time of 7 am, which I had worked out with
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
due to the fact that I have a very inflexible work schedule.
when I spoke to the estimator, I showed him the areas that needed to be cut back to allow for new tree growth.
He estimated that it would take 2 guys approximately 6-8 hours to complete the work and he mentioned that they had a big deal on sale through Angie's list for 6 handyman hours for $328 (worth $528) at $88/hour. I signed the contract and in addition to the $328 I paid for the big deal, I had to put an additional $300 deposit as well (which seems steep considering they buy the materials the day of). While they were not the least expensive by far, I thought that the reviews on Angie's List seemed favorable.
The problem came when they still hadn't arrived AFTER I left for work 40 minutes after their scheduled time. A little miffed, I left for work and got their phone call 1-1.5 hours after they were supposed to be there. Unfortunately, my husband got sick that day
en I setup the initial appointment, they were very understanding of my non-flexible work schedule and said they would send a crew that could

"We called Deckmasters to replace the back third of our deck, and to do a clean/stain. When the guys started pulling the boards up, it was clear that the joist were all rotten from being too close to the ground. They recommended that we rip out the whole thing and start over. It was a lot more money than we had wanted to spend but safety first. So we were in for a brand new deck.
Because of rain, it took a few more days than expected for the old deck to come out and the new deck to be fully built (4 days altogether). Also the only access to our backyard is through the house, so they had to bring all of the old wood through the house to dispose of them.. and wow they cleaned up everything so well, there's not a
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
of any dirt in the house.
The new deck is beautiful, well-built, sturdy and higher off the ground (to prevent water damage). We couldn't get it stained right away because the new wood needed some time to breathe, so per
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
's advice we waited about 1.5 months before calling them back to complete the job.
I was able to get on the schedule right away, but less than 12 hours after the stain job, we got 4 straight days of rain, which washed away a lot of the stain, and left the deck looking streaky and horrible. We called Deckmasters and emailed a few pictures, thinking we would have to beg and convince them to come back. But before we even had to say anything, they said -- no problem, we will come back and restain in, no charge. Just like that! No issues, no push back! The guys (same ones who've been to our house 3 times now-- they are really awesome -- hardworking, fast and polite) came back for round two and stained it again. This time the weather held out and it dried beautifully.
We are so happy with how the deck came out. True, it was a looooong process and more money than we'd expected to spend. But the guys at Deckmasters are great, and I'm glad to give them the business.

did an overall superb job in helping my fiance and I update our townhome. From the get go, the professionalism of the office staff in setting up a consultation was top notch. Someone came to our home literally the next day to assess our needs, and work days were scheduled soon thereafter. The workers arrived on time each day and worked over their 8 hour time allotment to get the job done, and get it done well -- we liked that they took their time to ensure quality work was achieved, versus a quicker job that left something to be desired (or made us call them back to redo it). My fiance and I gave them a rundown list of what we needed to be done, in this order: retile the master bathroom; repaint walls around bathroom vanities; replace kitchen sink; replace kitchen ceiling light; fix loose railing on deck; stain trim in kitchen; replace and paint front door. The workers purchased the majority of the materials, charging us in our final invoice -- my fiance and I are two busy working professionals (who probably wouldn't know what to buy anyway!), so this was very appreciated as it saved us so much time and worry in purchasing high quality materials that would support the fix-ups being completed.
We'd like to highlight the retile of the master bathroom, which was more that we had hoped for! Our friends and family couldn't stop complimenting us on the pictures we sent them. We appreciated that the workers asked my fiance and I for our opinions in tile colors/type, trim colors/type, etc. -- they ensured that they consulted us before making any permanent decisions. Overall, all the work that was done was superb, and look seamless in our home, like no one had ever been there. One incident that occurred was a tool cracking one of our bathroom sinks. The workers immediately called the
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
office, instructed them to order a new sink, and installed it as of this week as soon after it arrived. The workers left our home clean every day in which they were there (4 days total) and were friendly and welcoming. Morever, they left the front of our home free of debris/trash. Cost-wise, we believe the price reflects the high quality work performed and was well worth it.
We would absolutely recommend
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
to our friends and family in the area! Thanks to the company for all you did -- we'll be sure to call on you for future house work.

"Phenomenal—this one word sums up the
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
team. When you need a job done correctly and on budget look no further than this company. In my particular case,
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
from
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
rescued a structure that could have possibly collapsed by immediately making the time in his busy schedule to shore up the problem area. He then came in on budget with well built permanent columns. I really appreciated that
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
valued my money as if it was there own. Frequently the less expensive option was recommended from both the guys on the line and the office. Lets face it, no one likes emergency repairs, but
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
makes the solution high quality, budget friendly and a positive experience. They will be the contractor of choice for my next improvement project.

"Everything went fairly smoothly with this service- originally purchased as a deal of $250 for pressure wash and seal of a 250 sq. ft. deck.
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
did have to reschedule the original date for pressure washing, but he found a suitable alternative just a few days later so it was not really an issue. After measuring the deck, he explained that my deck was over the original number of square feet, so there would be an added charge, but the price of the deal obviously applied to the cost. I was a tad surprised at the size he measured (413 sq. ft.), but measured it myself after he left and came to basically the same number with my own rough estimations. The added cost was $266 over the original deal price, which basically made the cost for the wash and seal $1.25/sq. ft. I didn't really price any other options, but I figured I'd toss that out there so people understand where the overall price ended up. They did a very nice job, came back when they said they would for the waterproofing application, and were easy to work with. While it cost a bit more than I was anticipating, I'm certainly happy with the result and glad that I didn't have to do it myself!

was great. He took the time to explain to me in detail everything that he was going to do before the job and afterwards he went over how everything went.

The fact that he showed me before and after pictures of his work blew me away! Since most of the work he did was on my roof, I would never be able to see the results otherwise.
I will definitely hire
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
again for any roof or deck work I need in the future. He takes pride in his work and it shows.

"We submitted an online request for a quote for fireplace cleaning, power washing the siding of our townhome, powerwashing and sealing our deck, cleaning our gutters and installing gutter guards.
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
was out at our house the next day to look at the townhome and provided us an estimate that evening. Estimate was very reasonable compared to others we had received. After approving the estimate,
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
was over at the house the day after. He was amazing! We work full time out of the house, which makes having contractors very challenging because we don't have cell reception in our office and have to have folks call me in the office or email. Also, because they were going to do the fireplaces, we agreed to leave a key under our mat so they could get in to do those. First,
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
sent a note to me when he arrived at the house. then he gave me status updates all throughout his time at the house. When he inspected the gutters, he sent me a recommendation that they should be replaced because of their level of damage. We told him they leaded pretty badly and he was very upfront and honest about what he could do, and what my options were -- all by email. He gave me a quote for the gutter replacement and said that he could do those in the next few days. All in all it was as positive an experience as I could have hoped for. When they were finished - the house looked fantastic! Such a difference in our siding, the deck looked completely different and when it rains, I no longer get poured on outside my front door. When I asked for an updated invoice,
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
immediately sent me one, no questions asked (other contractors I have worked with have actually gotten offended when I've asked for something similar). I will hire them in the future and recommend them for anyone looking for top-notch professionalism, honesty, and quality of work.

"Our deck had been in bad shape, due to some bad self-help work. We contacted
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who responded quickly and sent out someone for an estimate. We asked for a complete deck powerwashing, sanding, and new stain. The powerwashing was pretty ineffective, because of the previous stain we'd put on ourselves. My wife was concerned that it was a waste of time; hard to say, I guess.
There was a lack of contact from
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
once the powerwashing was complete; they'd said they'd get in touch a week to 10 days afterward, but it took more than three weeks. Strangely, the techs for the sanding and staining showed up unannounced one morning--fortunately, I was home, and they got to work.
The guys did a great job. They only sanded the horizontal surfaces (not the vertical supports or major support beams, or anything underneath), and used a power sander, so we'll see how it goes. To be fair, that's what they told me they'd do, so it was no surprise...though I'd have appreciated at least some attempt to rough up the other surfaces so the stain/paint would adhere better.
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the Operations Manager, did a great job explaining the whole process, and let me know that our initial color choice wasn't going to work over the existing stain. She helped pick out a good color, which now looks great.
Overall, I'm pleased with
Alexandria Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and would recommend them to friends and neighbors (and Angie's List members).

"Company came when they said they were going to, pressure washed one day, and came back to seal the next day. Our deck never looked better. Will definitely use again."

"Provided a prompt quote, which seemed reasonable enough that I didn't bother getting other quotes. They were able to perform the work almost immediately (within a few days), which was great. When I called for some additional work I decided I wanted done, they were able to give me a quote over the phone and come do the work almost immediately (again, within only a few days). My only suggestion to them would be to be slightly more communicative with clients when they are going to be late for an appointment. (They were 30 minutes late one morning when we were going to meet them at our house to look at paint chips, and showed up a day later than scheduled to perform some work. Neither of these are problems but it would have been nice just to get a call letting us know of the change of plans.) Overall I felt like they provided a good enough value that I would use them again though."
