Recent Review: I paid Travis $1,100 for 10 hours of the labor for him and his helper to stain two decks. I bought the stain on my own. One deck was a smaller redwood deck, which was approximately six years old and had been stained twice before. The other was a larger pressure-treated deck which was two and half years old and had been stained once before. The older deck had some mildew on it and also required stripping of remnants of the previous stain. With respect to the larger deck, I had bought 10 gallons of Behr solid color sage green stain. He, however, only put five gallons on, which resulted in a coat so thin that you could see the brown wood underneath. After I paid him, he promised to come back and put another coat on, but then claimed to have forgotten about me. So I had to hire someone else to put a second coat on. With respect to the smaller deck, as a result of stripping off the old stain and pressure washing the deck, the deck and railings were covered with numerous rough, fuzzy spots. It looked like the deck had cancer. The wood was no longer smooth. But rather than sanding down the rough spots, he applied the solid color gray stain directly on the rough spots. The deck had been completely smooth before he cleaned it. I told him that the rough spots were very unattractive and I would have expected him to sand the rough spots before he applied the stain. He explained that was not how it was done. Anytime that he has removed the old stain from a deck, it has resulted in rough patches, and his customers have not minded that their deck was no longer smooth. In other words, he felt that I was being unreasonable to expect a smooth deck anytime after a deck has been prepped and stained. I guess I just have higher standards than he and his other customers do. So I had to hire someone else to sand the rough patches and re-stain them. Bottom line, if you want a smooth attractive deck after it's been stained, don't hire Travis. If, however, you want an unattractive deck and railings covered with rough patches, hire him. This guy is not about quality and does not take pride in his work..
