"
and
did a very professional job cleaning my house, porch and driveway.
contacted me immediately after entering" my information on their website. My appointment was scheduled the next day. The company arrived as scheduled and did an outstanding job. I really enjoyed the knowledge I received on the difference between power washing verses soft washing my home. After the soft wash, my house looked like new and the driveway was bright and white. Since soft washing uses a chemical to breakdown the dirt, the entire house cleaning only took 2 hours. I was extremely pleased with the process and the work done on my home.

"The work was done over about a three week period. It went pretty smoothly. All the work looks great, and seems well done. The master carpenter,
, did very" nice work on the front porch, retaining wall/steps, and fence. There were a couple of minor spots where they had to come back and touch up the trim paint around a window, which they did promptly when I pointed it out. There was minor damage to some bushes around the house, which is understandable since the bushes were badly overgrown. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up after themselves and pressure-washed the concrete driveway.

"This was a long process as I needed to get the design approved by my
. Following approval I worked with Nkosi Brown and
to figure out" which color scheme and railing system to use. After all that was done, they sent out an incredible crew that worked all weekend long demolishing my old deck, replacing or reinforcing the deck supports, replacing it with composite material, putting up a cable railing system. They even worked to replace a couple pieces of trim that were displaced by the old deck. Even better, they sanded the top rail and painted it with matching color to my house trim! The excellence is in the details! My new deck looks better than I had imagined.

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.

Everything went great. We had several estimates performed in

2014 in connection with the painting of the exterior of our home.

provided us with a free estimate and a detailed written proposal. We hired Mr.
Verona Porch Cleaning Contractors Provider Name Locked
based on the cost relative to the work proposed as well as the level of professionalism exhibited by him during our first meeting. He gave us an estimated start date of Mid-October 2014. He kept in touch with me throughout the summer, and, due to better than expected weather, was able to move our start date to the end of September. The job took exactly as long as he said it would. He and his employees arrived on time, and were polite and lovely to deal with. Our house looks great and we could not be more pleased with the results. We would absolutely hire him again and would recommend him without reservation.

I was looking for someone who used nontoxic products, and couldn't help noticing all of the A reviews for this company. My house has white aluminum siding, and the whole one side was covered with mildew.

promised I'd see a big difference, but I tried to keep my expectations low, since I'd been disappointed with another company I'd used in the past. When I returned home I was stunned...could not believe the difference. When

recommended washing the roof, I liked the idea, but told him I thought I had some shingles missing from the highest part of the roof. He replaced those too! Are you kidding? I know how hard it must have been to cut through the years of accumulated mildew and dirt, especially on my driveway. And my windows have not been this clean in a LONG time. I highly recommend this company's services, and would not hesitate to call

They were hired to replace rotted wood boards on a front and back deck, sand, varnish and paint both decks, prior to the rainy season. We hired them on August 16th.
They contracted the work out - which was fine. The contractor hired to replace the rotten wood, did his part and did a good job of replacing the rotten boards.
The painter was hired to come out the weekend of October 10th. We were told she was available during this time. She showed up on Ocrtober 11th which was a sunny day. The power washer she had didn't work so she left and said she would have to reschedule. She came back the next day (it was raining), power washed both decks and we haven't seen her since. She was to come back the weekend of the 18th if the sun came out - which it did. She called on Sunday, Octoger 19th at 2:30 and said she would again have to reschedule. Today is Monday, we now have the rainy season in full force and both decks are stripped. We told her we would find alternative help.
It's clear that at some point

and Company did great work as they got great reviews on Angies List. Unfortunately, it looks as though they are over-booked without enough help to catch up. I can't give a good review as the work wasn't completed - in a timely manner or otherwise. We will by necessity need to go elsewhere.
