Recent Review: Stephen came out and blew our minds on what he could do for our back yard. Originally I wanted a quote on just the pool pavers. He came back with an idea that tied the pool to the back yard via rebuilding the deck and using an alternative for the pool area surface. Stephen noted the condition of our existing deck as unsafe and he was right. We agreed on his design and day by day it all came together. We went from a single tier deck to a three tier deck that spilled down to our pond incorporating our flag pole and taking out part of the existing fence to let us appreciate the nature of the pond. He noticed we had a fire pit on one side of the yard and incorporated it into the middle of the deck area. We have spent many hours enjoying our back yard since its completion in March. The kids love roasting marshmallows when its cool out. Steph really knows what he's doing with back yards and met the deadlines he promised. He is also reasonable on pricing for superb work. It came out great!

Recent Review: Our 1st exp. was negative as they failed to show for the appointment; however, we gave them a 2nd chance & our experience was wonderful! They called before arriving a few minutes later than scheduled, gave a competitive bid on the work, came out & cleaned the deck as agreed upon, then did an excellent job in painting the deck. Their work was outstanding, we were satisfied with the price, and they finished the work in the time frame that we required. We are extremely pleased with the finished work!

Recent Review: They always return my calls promptly and have appeared on the job when they say they will. The pool equipment was replaced promptly and they cleaned my pool of all the debris from the tornado. The pavers look beautiful and I love the pattern they used to lay them. They arrived on time, pressure washed the decking, and laid the pavers. I am extremely happy with the service I receive from this company and highly recommend them to others.

Recent Review: Mahdi was always prompt and courteous and downright fun to talk with! He's a true professional with a deep level of skill and understanding of what it takes to prepare new pressure treated lumber to accept stain/sealant. Mahdi spent nearly 5 days working on our deck..not because he was slow, or because the deck was overly large in sq. feet, but because of his profound attention to detail and wanting everything to come out 100% perfect. I gave a "B" on price, not because they were overly expensive, but because a homeowner could feasibly clean and stain a deck for less. However, the work that is done to prepare the deck is amazing. Mahdi (and Deck Medic in general) has their own proprietary deck preparation method which is a THREE step treatment. One that takes off the "mill wax" and other surface contaminants, another which cleans deeper and opens the "pores" of the wood to allow it to accept the stain more readily, and a third which is a mildewcide to kill any and all spores or mold which has gotten into the wood during the time it has taken to dry enough (pressure treated wood takes 4-6 months from new to dry out enough to accept stain). Then, Mahdi HAND SANDED THE ENTIRE DECK to remove "just enough" of the surface wood, in case anything greyed during the initial drying time, and to assist in stain absorption. It took him an entire day on his hands and knees with a sanding block...because (as he explained to me) that using a large pad sander can lead to severe wood damage and can also make swirls in the wood, so hand sanding is the only way to be certain it is right. He sanded every surface, whether walking surface, uprights, railings, etc.. both inside and outside. Mahdi then (the following day after carefully using a blower to clean the sawdust left from sanding) used two coats of Deck Medic's proprietary stain, which is designed to absorb deeply, create a lasting seal with the wood, prevent mold/mildew, etc. There are many color choices, and Mahdi was more than willing to do actual color sampling on a piece of wood if asked, rather than just using the swatches and samples. Mahdi followed the Deck Medic "playbook" to the letter and once he sprayed the first coat on the flat (walking) areas he used a lamb's wool "mop" to go over the stain/seal in order to even it out and make sure everything was covered and perfect. The railings were done by hand, as were any areas in-between the boards to assure there was nothing "missed". When it came to staining the lattice skirting, since it was already stained with a solid stain previously, it was cleaned with the pressure washer and stained with a color matching solid stain, rather than the semi-transparent stain used on the decking itself. Mahdi got under the deck and placed plastic behind each piece of lattice, o no overspray would contaminate the freshly stained deck and railing. With regard to overspray, Mahdi was absolutely thorough when it came to taping-off and covering every part of the house which could be subject to overspray. He even covered the screens on the screen porch with plastic tarping and also covered every window, taped every edge where the decking met the house, so no stain got onto the lanai concrete flooring, etc. He taped BETTER than a professional painter and tarped more than anyone else I've seen in my many years. Also, in order to keep any overspray from making "dots of stain' on the already stained deck railing, he placed plastic tarps over that when spraying or painting the deck flooring, etc. Overall, there is not one spot of overspray anywhere...which was very important because the house was just painted about six months ago. Well done, Mahdi! After the job was complete, we had to stay off the deck for 48 hours, which is a minor inconvenience and well worth the time, as during that curing time, the oil-based stain/sealant kept absorbing deeper into the wood and created a truly rich, deep color that is unparalleled by any other deck stain I've seen in the past. So back to price. While I marked it a "B" due to the cost of the job, it is not an over-charge by ANY stretch of the imagination. The labor that Mahdi put in to the deck was well worth every penny. The value is there, and no other process available (to my knowledge) cleans wood so thoroughly and no other stains (and my wife picked-up at least 15 samples from 5 different companies at the "big box" stores) came even close to the rich and beautiful color of the cherry stain (and other proprietary stains) created by Deck Medic. There IS an Angie's List discount, and due to certain circumstance in my life (financially), Mahdi was able to reduce the price a bit more. For that, and for the results of the deck and hard work Mahdi put in, I am grateful. Once the job was complete, Mahdi came back to do an inspection (all as part of the service!) and he touched-up any areas he felt needed it. He was always open to communication from me, accepted and acted on feedback without complaint and gave 100% of his expertise to our job. I have referred Mahdi and Deck Medic to several people already and intend to continue to do so in the future. We've had friends and relatives to the house since the deck was stained, and every one of them, without prompting, complimented the beauty of the deck since the staining process. On top of it all, Deck Medic offers a great warranty and is very responsive to any "off the menu" requests, such as tightening down a screw on a deck board that may have come loose as the pressure treated lumber dried. Highly recommended overall, and when it is time (as any oil stain gently fades over the years) I will have Mahdi and Deck Medic come back to do a one-step cleaning and re-seal, which is significantly less expensive than the original job. My wife and myself recommend Deck Medic and Mahdi with great enthusiasm! Regarding the attached photos, any light areas on the wood are from wood filler used to fill knot holes, and had nothing to do with Deck Medic. As the stain/sealant used is semi-transparent, there will be natural color variations in the wood due to grain, wood color, etc. I think it adds "character" to the deck. Much moreso than to use a solid {on top of the wood" stain which is more like paint and covers the natural beauty of the wood).

Recent Review: Dennis was extremely thorough. He spent three hours washing and scrubbing my deck, removing all aglae from deck as well as the screen enclosure. He communicated when his schedule changed. He repaired all areas damaged by the cleaning. Our 17 year old deck looks like new. We would definitely call him for your deck work.

ASunrise Quality Painting Inc
They stained the wood decks with the correct deck stain and it is a pleasure to look at and walk on the decks again. They also did some repairs on our dock and stained it. They did more than we expected, even stained under the stairs. Three years ago we had the same wood decks painted by another company and were very unhappy with their work. What a difference! And in addition Sunrise Painting pressure washed the whole house outside walls, the pool deck, etc. for a total lower price than the previous contractor.

They stayed for the whole 6 hours and there were no additional fees. It turned out pretty good. The quality of the painting of the furniture was great, but the wood deck was a challenging task.

Aaron came to our home and throughly went over the benefits of composite decking. Then we discussed the overall look we wanted to achieve. Looking through a variety of pictures of their completed job sites, we selected the railings and colors that would work. Rich was our installer and we appreciated his eye for detail and perfectionism. Phil was the project manager and kept us informed of progress. The new decks are a great improvement to our outside living area. We have already recommended Archadeck to our neighbors and friends.

FIntegrity Finishes of Tampa Bay
John came out to survey the proposed project.  He was very nice and we talked about at length about their work with wood stains.  I told him I wanted to use TWP 100 for the stain.  He later called back that day to tell me that, according to the manufacturer directions, new decks would have to wait one year before staining with TWP 100.  However, I looked it up and TWP says 4-12 months before staining.  Of course how long you wait depends on the climate.  Since we live in Florida and the deck is out in direct sunlight after four months the deck was showing signs of drying.  For example, popping nails, cracks in the wood, signs of cupping, graying of the wood, and etc.  We had other companies and the contractor who built our deck come out and tell us to stain this deck ASAP.  So, I contacted John to tell him about TWP 4-12 months readiness for staining and that we will select his company for the job.  He agreed.   The next day I received an email from Aaron containing a proposal that included price and materials.  We asked what warranty was there and he replied that there was none since TWP says to wait 4-12 months before staining new decks and that my deck does not fall within that safety area so therefore my deck does not qualify for a warranty.  We also asked for a contract and he replied that we don't need one.  The signed proposal is enough. Where we needed to sign it explicitly states that we approve the terms, specification, and price.  We authorize you to draw up all necessary contract documents so work can begin.  I replied with that we have been burned in the past for not having a binding contract written and would respectfully request one containing a stated warranty, assurances of quality, itemized list of costs for materials and labor, step by step application process of the stain, start date for the project and approximate ending date, and assurances of payment to subcontractors if used all to be stated on a binding contract.  Aaron replied that they don't think its necessary to write up contracts for jobs less than $10,000.   His last email to me stated that it is clearly too early to stain my deck so a warranty cannot be given and they had canceled my order and declined the job.  Aaron's earlier excuse for no warranty was that TWP says wait 4-12 months to stain a deck with TWP.  Then says my over 4 month old deck is not ready to be stained?  He also never saw the deck himself.  Was it the warranty excuse or the written contract request he had a problem with?  Pretty shady to me.

APro Paver Clean & Seal
Mr. Chapman is a star.  He tells you what he's going to do, in detail, then does it in a very professional and effective manner, and leaves you with a beautiful result.  He is excellent at what he does, and this time, the third time, looks even better than ever before (and that was already excellent). They showed up on time, did what they had to do, and even having to move a few items I could not move myself, left the place immaculate.  The paver patio (around the pool) and the adjacent deck look brand new.  They removed stains, secured loose pavers, replaced the sand which had washed away over the years, and restored the beauty of our covered surfaces in the back of the house.  He communicates very well and in a timely manner.  He answers all questions fairly and honestly, and does what he says he is going to do....in a very professional manner. We had used him twice before over the last 6 or 7 years, and this effort appears to me the best ever.  And he was already d*** good at it then. I would highly recommend him and his company to anybody.  I get nothing out of this review other than the satisfaction of giving a great review to a great provider of a great service, and the hope that he continues to be successful enough to be available for me and my wife ant our house again in 2 - 3 years when we will need this again.  Anyone can call me at 813-486-5886 if they want a verbal testimonial or have questions.  You will not be disappointed if you contract with this man and his company to protect and preserve your pavers and your wood decks.  Thanks Jon! Regards, Rob and Lisa Snyders Dana Shores Tampa
