"
up a contract to stain deck which was supposed to include a $100 credit. Said he would be in touch to schedule, but never heard from him." Ended up staining deck myself to get job completed. Feel like I am owed a refund on original cleaning.

"Very pleased from start to finish. Cost was higher than originally indicated, but this was due to the unforeseen need to build a base.

How to Stain Your Deck in 3 Easy Steps

If hiring a contractor isn't in the budget this year and you’re ready to take on the project yourself, learn these three easy steps to staining your deck.

Pressure Washing, Deck Maintenance, Landscaping

Dear Angie: What kind of companies can I hire to pressure wash a home and a wood deck? Are there any risks with power washing? -- Alan M., River Vale, New Jersey

After a harsh winter, get your home looking fresh and clean with a professional pressure washing. (Photo by Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dee G.)

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.

Afther the initial round of sanding, there was still several boards with a significant amount of paint on the horizontal surface. I called, and they came back the next day to do more sanding, but still did not do a very thorough job. The following week, they stained the deck. It looked absolutely horrible. Paint was still visible underneath on most sections of the deck, and the stain that was supposed to be dark brown was put on so thin it looked like the honey stain. I called, and someone came out to look. They agreed to resand the worst parts and stain again. It is better, but still not very well done considering the price. The quality rating of C is an average. The first time was a D and after they "fixed" it is a B

I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my deck. I bought the 199 coupon, but this did end up costing about 500.00 due to the size of my deck.

and his crew were unable to provide an exact date and time d/t weather conditions; however, they came by and cleaned on one day and then stained, sealed the following day. The finished product was excellent. The cost was a little more than I had anticipated but I am very happy with the outcome.

For the past 12 twelve years I has used this provider to clean and seal the river rock deck of my pool.
Deck was pressure washed.
A couple of areas were patched and the deck was sealed with epoxy.
I will continue to use these folks.

We had an excellent experience with this company.

, the sole proprietor of this small business, not only did great work but his communications were professional and he was very punctual e.g. returned texts quickly, showed up when promised etc. He also explained what to expect the first time staining a new deck and provided a projection for how long the stain would continue looking good before it would likely need another staining (approx. 2-3 years depending on weather conditions). Overall, we are very pleased with

It has been almost a year that we had taken the help of this provider to get our deck stained. The reason for posting this review almost a year later is the bad quality of the job which has started to become evident. At the beginning of this spring we started seeing the stain peel off at many places. That is, just after one winter, the stain is peeling off. One reason for this could be that the original stain was not sanded off properly. Or the new stain was not applied sufficiently. We were told that this new stain would last for around 3 years but what we are seeing is really bad in less than a years time frame. Also, when we had got this job done last year, some areas were not touched. We had to contact the provider to get these stained.
As compared to my deck, my neighbors deck, which was stained around 2 years ago by a different provider, looks much better even now. We are wondering what would be the state of our deck after the upcoming winter. After spending a significant amount we expect that the stain would hold up for the said duration of around 3 years at least. However the current condition is looking much worse than expected within an years time frame.
We use professional services to save time. However, not sure if this is true anymore.

The carpenters arrived on time and did a great job. The power wash made the deck look like new.
It took them one and a half days to stain the deck. This is an old deck and needed a lot of work.

I contacted the provider via online questionaire on May 15, 2015. I was called immediately and told to send some photos of the house, which I did. They followed up with a questionnaire which I filled out.
Didn't hear anything for a week, so I emailed them the following: "It's been a week. Haven't heard anything. I guess you're not interested in my business???"
They responded: "It's not that at all. It's alot like the week before Christmas in retail here. We are working non-stop, with little to no time off and getting time to quote these jobs is not easy, since Rod is out most days. You have not been forgotten. Thank you for your patience. We will be in touch."
Didn't hear anything for a couple of weeks, so I called. Although pleasant enough, it was basically a run around. Said they couldn't get to the job until October! And they would contact me in a month. Never heard a word.
Meanwhile, I found someone else, more local, who did a fantastic job for half the price SeeDirtRun quoted (over the phone).
I have no idea what kind of work they do.
