Deck refinishing--restaining and sealing. Kept postponing the job. After refinishing the deck, left many puddles; sealant was unevenly applied and there were a few uncovered areas

He is an outstanding worker. I like the way he presented himself when I called him to refinish my deck. He painted the downstairs of my house. He changed some light fixtures for me also. I trust his pricing. He is perfection oriented. He shows up on time.

They contacted me to let me know each time that they would be at my home to perform each process in the deck refinishing. They were prompt and courteous. The deck's previous finish was well worn and flaking. Because of the previous finish, they had to use a solid stain (I was hoping for a clear stain so that the wood grain would show through). To my surprise, I can actually see the wood grain even with the solid stain. The finished deck looks much better than I had anticipated. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking to have their deck refinished.

Carl was out checking on crew each day. Carl is so great to work with. He returned phone calls promptly and was very helpful to answer all questions. His crew members were polite, professional and such hard workers. They also cleaned up after each day. The price was so reasonable for the amount of work done. Out of 4 companies contacted, Phoenix was the only company who would take on this work. I am so happy to have hired them and will use them for future other painting or decorating jobs.

Very disappointed with the overall quality of work and lack of professionalism, start to finish. I truly wish I would have used a different company. I cannot think of a worse experience than the one I had. My recommendation: if you use this contractor, be sure to get a copy of the insurance certificate before any work is started!

We have used Jeff and Decks RX several times to refinish our wood deck, but this is the first time he painted our house. It was a large job and they did excellent work. Jeff is a pleasure to work with: he is very good at letting you know when he will be arriving, or when he might not be working due to the weather. He had 4 or 5 guys working with him each day and they were all very polite, cleaned up every day, and were great with my dogs. We couldn't be happier with the job Decks RX did for us. We have absolutely no complaints.

They blasted the deck to clean it then refinished it.They were backed up and weren't able to do the work for about 6 weeks, but kept me in the know about when they would schedule the work. The deck looks terrific and the sealant they used makes the wood look new. Plus the price was very fair.

With a minor wrinkle of not enough paint initially being ordered, Gordon ironed out the issue, allowing for the job's completion. His crew was detailed, meticulous, and thorough. The final result is a fabulously refurbished deck, meeting expectations.

This is the second time we have had Kevin and Kerry do extensive interior and exterior painting, staining, sealing, and power washing at our home and we **could not be more pleased** with the quality of their work or the ease of working with them!! They are very friendly, timely, knowledgeable, and extremely trustworthy and honest. The work areas are always very neat during, and at the conclusion of, the projects. Kerry also has a keen eye for color and was very helpful in selecting colors, which saved me the anxiety of choosing colors on my own, or the expense of a decorator. We were new to the area, chose them from Angie's List, and truly feel that we have unearthed two wonderful gems. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful painting experience!

It was excellent. He knows what hes doing. He was on time, kept to his estimate, and so far the work has been excellent.
Recent Review: i had met with five companies total for our porch and siding. Some estimates were one or two lines of explanation for a $15000 job. The Siding Group gave a very detailed, complete bid which covered everything they would be doing. Mr. Borowski spent a lot of time going over the product choices, the details of the installation. We then decided to go with them for the porch, and the process for that bid was just as complete. The crew showed up early, prepared for the day and then started at 8 every day. They worked quickly and efficiently. The owner of the Siding Group stopped by frequently to make sure everything went smoothly. The crew cleaned up daily. The porch and siding are beautiful.
Recent Review: The whole project took 2 days. I had water damage in the bedroom, several severe cracks from settling, and a deck that needed to be power washed and sealed. The owner came and gave me an estimate. He discussed some repairs that I had done myself and explained that I had missed a step and the repairs might not last. After checking his recommendations, I decided he was correct. We scheduled a date for the jobs. He and his employee showed up on time and did great work. I wasn't sure if it needed further attention, but the owner wanted to come back. He also threw in a few very small extra jobs while he was here--gratis. The only thing I would suggest I that they clean up a little better and put all the furniture back. I will definitely call Accurate when it is time to paint.
Recent Review: This was a positive, customer service oriented experience from start to finish. Jim Scanlon, the owner provided the estimate. He spent much time with us to be sure he understood our expectations. We were clear about what we needed/wanted up front and he gave us a detailed estimate and fair price for the job. We have used MANY other professional painters before and Lookswell Painting is the company we will use in the future. Because my husband was having major back surgery, Jim worked with his schedule to get his crew out to get our job done before the surgery. The crew was terrific (primarily Mario and Edmundo); hard-working, polite guys who did a great painting job and thoroughly protected our property and cleaned up the area when they were done. We were very concerned about our brand new windows and Jim and the crew reassured us that they would do everything in their power to protect them....and they did! There are lots of little things that Lookswell does right that mean so much to a customer. Jim has his own carpenters which means that we were able to get a complete estimate and also means that Jim has control over how the work is done to avoid waiting for another company to get the carpentry work done. And, the carpentry was done to our satisfaction and we are particular. Jim also doesn't nickel and dime a homeowner. We suspect there were a few extra things Jim had the crew do for us but he didn’t add on any extra charges at the end of the job. He brought on extra guys on the last day to finish the job so that it wouldn’t go over to another work day. He willingly made arrangements to have the items on our punch list completed. They weren’t the cheapest of our estimates but having used some of the other companies before that we got estimates from, we know Lookswell was the best. And they provide a two year guarantee from the completion of the job.
Recent Review: All I can say is that Steadfast had to deal with 1. an old house that had not been painted in 33 years with three types of surfaces. because of the age OSHA assumes there is lead paint - this meant abatement (think haz-mat suits). 2. a two story house (one of the tallest in the area) and one side that has with porch, a pine tree and bushes. They dealt with these obstacles with the utmost professionalism and did a beautiful job (many compliments) But what I did not expect was Randy (I hope I remembered the right name) came and power washed the house and deck and he noted that the deck had a loose railing and missing spindles. He then said that they would fix the railing and spindles (I had extra) and there would be no extra charge!! End result - house and deck are beautiful and I would recommend them to anyone.
Recent Review: Had the whole house painted. Original was white but I wanted color. I was scared but I needed to be bold. A lot of wood rot. Marco and his team came promptly, earlier than scheduled, and were very professional. I work long hours so I they were really left to themselves the first 2-3 days. I would just come home at 6 or 7, check any work done that day, if I had a question I would text and he responded right away. Marco also did a lot of carpentry so I didn't have to hire a second person. On their second to the last day I was home all day. That was when I first met him and his crew, before that I just dealt with his work product. His crew was cheerful, dressed professionally. I had some anxieties about the color. He helped me decide how to proceed. He had some very helpful suggestions regarding color matching and how to paint the details. Because of rain I later called for a touch up. They did it within 2 days. Weather was unpredictable, but because they work fast they beat the rain. Paint dries before it drizzled. I would hire them again.
Recent Review: In May I was advised when I had a roofing contractor look at a leaking copper roof above a 6x12 one story entry-way on my 2-story 1928 brick house that before I got the roof fixed I should get the brickwork done since that was the original cause of the problem. I found that getting the several contractors' estimates was a learning process. John Serafini came out the first time within just a few days of my calling the company and gave me an estimate for what I absolutely needed. After considering that I'd rather get other marginal problems fixed I called him back twice to look at these areas of concern, get his opinion for the additional work and got 2 revised estimates. He was very patient with my call-backs. After I signed the contract and paid a deposit I was put on work list and informed that it would be about 4 weeks, depending on weather, until the work was started. However in just 2 weeks I got a call that the work could start in 2 days. Andy, the foreman, was at my door at 8:00 in the morning and estimated that it would take1 long day or possibly a little longer to finish the work with his crew of about 10. Because of thunderstorms they stopped work at 2, returned the next day and worked most of that day to finish the job. Andy gave me a couple of choices for the mortar color. The color selected matched the previous tuck pointing perfectly after it dried. Because of the color shift as mortar dries I know this color matching can be tricky and was really impressed with the outcome. After the first day, I was concerned about some mortar residue left on the rebuilt brick and voiced my concern which was taken seriously and resolved to my satisfaction. We were really impressed with the clean-up as well as how well the crew preserved the plantings around my house. The days that the work was done were brutally hot but even at the end of the day the crew worked like gangbusters, completing the job and cleaning up. To sum up I was totally impressed with the quality of the AAA-1's work, their efficiency and the respect they showed my property.
