"Their price was in the ballpark with the other estimates we received.
’s crew was very nice. They were very professional to work with." We have four dogs which can be hard to work around at times. They worked very well with our schedule to be able to make sure we were there while the job was being completed. They finished the job in about four days and cleaned up well. He did a follow up with me about a month ago. They are going to actually complete a touch up job in the spring.
and his crew did a great job overall!

"It went great! After they came out and cleaned my fence, it looked brand new again. They put natural stain on my fence after cleaning and that made it look so fresh and new,

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.

The Dexperts came recommended by the company that built our new deck. We had three quotes, Dexperts was the most expensive. All contractors agreed it was a two day job. We were under a deadline to have the deck stained. But
Verona Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
neglected to realistically inform us they might not be able to get to us in time. Plus the cold and rainy weather delayed their other jobs. The crew came and "finished" the job in one day. Once we saw the mediocre job that was done we called and talked to
Verona Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Without actually seeing the problem areas (uneven blotchy staining, unstained wood, drip lines, overspray on the house, stain on the hot tub) he became very defensive saying all that it needed was a touch up. Over the course of three more visits (over several weeks due to the holidays and the weather) the crew repainted the affected areas of the house and redid some of the problem areas. But not without denting our new hot tub cover by standing on it. Even after all that we asked them to come out again to stain in between the boards because we could see areas where the raw wood was exposed. They claimed no one stains that area but did come out to do it. Though not satisfied with their work even after they did try to fix the problems we were tired of dealing with the Dexperts and agreed to pay the remaining balance. By not taking the proper time to prep the house and the deck they increased their own work and our frustration unnecessarily. Overall it was a rushed job and it looks like it.

The crew were prompt every morning they were scheduled to be here, worked cleanly and were very courteous. We had just put in all new carpet and they covered all the furniture and carpet with plastic. They moved large pieces of furniture and put everything back when they were done painting including window treatments. Overall a job very well done! I am going to use them for my exterior when it warms up enough to paint outside.
