I was looking for a deck cleaner and refinisher for our old deck that was very dirty and mildewed. I took a chance on someone in the want ads in the Tuscaloosa News. I didn't check Angie's List because before, there have never been people from Tuscaloosa listed. Anyway, called JD Handyman phone number and had to leave a message. Waited 2 days, but he called back and immediately apologized for not returning the call sooner. He asked about the job and we arranged a time for him to come the next day to look at the deck. He said he had to finish another job by noon and would call and then be at our house after that. He called and came by at about 2:00. He looked over the job, said he could do it for $350, if we bought the deck paint. He recommended a full coverage paint, due to the condition of the wood. He also recommended going to Lowe's because he had found that their personnel were the most knowledgable about deck finishes. He said he could start the job the next morning, if we had the paint. We agreed and went to Lowe's that night to get what we wanted. JD had said he would start at 9:30 because he had to run past another job before he came here. He showed up about 9:45, which was GREAT. (Better than almost all of any other workmen we have had.) After getting everything prepared, he worked till he had done 2 bleachings, scrubbings and rinsings. He told us he was leaving for lunch and would be back to do more. He came back to check on dark spots that needed more cleaning and worked on those. He then left for the day to let everything dry overnight. he said he would be back at 8:00 in the morning and he emphasized that twice to us. He returned about 8:10 in the morning and proceeded to paint. He painted the railings, seats and other side surfaces first and gave them 2 coats. He then painted the edges of the floor area between all the boards, with a brush, on his hands and knees -- very conscientious job. Then painted the boards with a roller. He waited a while and did the second coat. He then waited a while and did a touch up on areas that needed it. He was done by 12:30 and talking to us and leaving. My husband showed him some other exterior painting we need done on our house and JD gave us a quote for that job, too. We will be calling him again, soon. He is a very nice, courteous worker. He was quiet--no loud radio, or lots of phone calls. He mentioned Angie's List, so I am giving him a review here to help him get more work. You will not be disappointed, if you call him. He does lots of other things, too, like plumbing, interior painting, repair, electrical. But I don't know personally his skill in these areas.
