Deck cleaning, paint job brighten up Orlando pool area
Orlando Angie's List member Rica Hall is enjoying time in her pool this summer with her husband, Steve, and children Mikey and Katie. She especially loves walking on her pretty, new deck.
Richard Lopez performed the $700 job of pressure washing, repairing and painting the concrete deck in March.
“It was due for new paint, but I wanted to wait until after the fall and winter months when the trees drop most of the leaves,” she says. “As soon as the weather started to warm and I saw fewer leaves on my deck, I knew it was time.”
Rica called Lopez for an estimate based on Angie’s List reviews. She says she planned to get multiple estimates, but Lopez gave one that was within her ballpark expectation, and knocked it out of the park!
The project wasn’t a headache to deal with, since Lopez communicated well through phone calls, text messages and emails. There were some weather delays, but she says he was quick to let her know his plan going forward.
While she was involved in the paint selection, she says she went by Lopez’s recommendation.
“He showed me a popular color, and it was not very different from what I already had, so I trusted him,” she says.
Rica says her favorite part of the project was seeing old become new again. Visitors always tell her the deck looks great. “Of course, I rave about Richard and the great job that he did,” she says.
Katie and Mikey love the deck too. “They both play on the deck out back all of the time — riding tricycles and pushing toys around,” she says. “They love it out back.”
Rica isn’t currently planning any more projects, but she says she will call Lopez for interior and exterior painting when the time is right. “Once you come across someone like him, you stop shopping for anyone else,” she says.
