They did a very good job on everything. I'm especially impressed with how well the deck has stayed looking nice in the 4 years since it was done as long as I put a clear coat over it every year.

Sanded front deck, then sealed and buffed both decks using his 'special' formula. He did return several times to work on the back deck as it was not sealing properly. Looked OK until the rain started, then both decks turned black. I washed with Dawn as he instructed but it didn't have any impact. We called this June to ask what could be done to clean the decks - he offered to come back for $800.00. When we declined, he said that since we live in the woods this was not a surprise. Wish he would have told us that before we spent $1700 to have him treat our decks. It took us a couple of weeks, but we have finally removed the finish with several coats of '30 second cleaner' and have resealed with a conventional deck sealer.

My wife and I have 40 X 18 foot concrete deck supported 9 feet off the ground. The glue lam beams were failing and the deck was sagging from all the weight. Alan and his crew carefully removed all of the concrete, replaced all the faulty beams with new, and resurfaced the deck with his special polymer coating and crafted the surface to look like Italian tile. Perfect result. Would recommend them highly!!!!!!!

AAvos Inc - Wrought Iron Engineering IronWork
We had several sections of wrought iron railing on a two-tiered deck that needed re-furbishing. One section of upper deck railing was a single corner piece with each section 8 feet long. This was too big to remove easily. We had Avos separate this piece into two sections and weld some additional fastener brackets. They also did some minor re-fabrication of the railing on the deck stairs to fit this after the deck had been re-built. Avos did the initial fabrication on-site and then removed all the railing for final fabrication and powder coating. They re-installed the upper deck railing, ensuring a water-tight seal with the waterproof deck surface. We were very happy with their work. The quality was very good and Surge Sova and his crew were all great to deal with. Highly recommended.

We had not sealed our deck for several years; it was grey and slimy. My husband power-washed but it took a long time and we weren't sure how much more work it would be to seal it. I called two deck re-finishers for quotes finishing the job. One wanted to use chemical brighteners before sealing. Bill Cumby said his company used light sanding instead of the chemicals. I chose his method because the deck was splintery, and we have a creek below so I wanted to be easy on the environment. The two quotes were very similar in price. Bill also agreed to fix some dry rot in the deck railing. He and his two assts worked all day. They countersank the nails, replaced some bad deck boards, sanded, and when Bill found carpenter ants and more extensive damage in the railing, he didn't refer me to someone else but said he could fix it, which he did over the next two weekends including priming and painting the rail. We were very pleased.

BLo's Contracting, Inc.
The pressure washing crew was excellent. They were very thorough. The painting, staining, and sealing all went OK, but I was very surprised (I had NOT asked) that they sprayed the deck and carport areas. I am talking the "floor" of the deck (basically a big flat floor with gaps in the boards) and the concrete slab, which is flat. My feeling is that one loses a lot of stain/sealer into the air (there were breezes). I did not feel that the coverage was acceptable. They agreed to put another coat on the deck and this time to apply it with a roller. Also they applied additional coats of sealer to the concrete. Besides asking how the paint is applied, be sure to ask: what do you consider "a coat" of paint? They did not look at "number of coats" as how many times paint is applied (say on successive days), but rather how many sq. ft. each gallon of paint covered. So putting it on heavy in their eyes was 2 coats. And if it said 100-300 sq. ft. per gallon, they used the 300 number.

ASchopp's Home Maintenance
The original estimate was the final price. The deck was about 10 years old and had had very little maintenance. We thought it might need to be replaced. Paul looked at and said he could make it look good. His crew arrived when they said they would and sanded the entire deck and all of the railings in one day. They also did some minor repairs to some of the railings. The next day they applied one coat of finish. They let that set for a day and then finished up with a final coat. The finish was brushed and rolled on. They did a good job of cleaning up as they went. The deck looks great.

APortland Deck Refinishing
Everything went smoothly. Chad was timely, professional and accommodating. This is the second time we've had him seal the decks. Two years ago he took on our slightly neglected decks: sanding, cleaning and refinishing. This was just standard 2-year maintenance, and it was easy.

Excellent work. Ross was great to work with. Our deck is old and needed a facelift. It looked bad, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. We were amazed at the outcome. The job was performed thoroughly and meticulously. We could not be more satisfied with both the quality of the work and the price, which was very reasonable and competitive. We will have Ross paint the house next. We highly recommend Ace of Paints.

Recent Review: I’m extremely satisfied with the work they did. When the solid stain started to fade a little they even came back and put another coat of solid stain on the deck for no additional charge. The bid I got was very fair and they answered all of my questions. They noticed a crack in one of the seals of a roof pipe vent. They showed me the crack and then they resealed it.
Recent Review: SFW was great to work with on this project. We were replacing a deck and they took care of demolition, designing a new deck and once construction was done, did a great job working with us to find the best stain. We also had to do some house painting around the area of the deck and SFW also was able to help us with this as well. Overall, a great experience, very professional crews.
Recent Review: Alex and his crew put in an AWESOME new trex two level, hot-tub-containing deck for us. Alex worked with us from the design stage through completion. He helped us choose and purchase materials (additional $5500) at Home Depot, his crew built the deck frame but to save $$ they were happy to have us lay and screw in all the boards. Then they came back and did the stairs, railings and fascia so that it looks professional. We love our new outdoor living space. We found Alex several years ago on Angie's list and have used him for a basement remodel, a kitchen remodel at our rental, and now our deck. We've always been pleased with his quality of work, the professionalism of his crew and his responsiveness to our needs/ desires as well as how he works with us to limit cost in various ways.
Recent Review: DAN PROVIDED A QUICK AND COMPETITIVE QUOTE. HE WAS IN REGULAR CONTACT REGARDING SCHEDULING THE WORK. THE CREW WAS ON TIME AND VERY CAREFUL ABOUT MASKING,COVERING PLANTS, ETC. THEY WERE POLITE AND FRIENDLY. THEY DID A GREAT JOB AND CLEANED UP IMMACULATELY.
Recent Review: PDX Arrow was quick to respond to my estimate request and had the quickest turnaround time in getting me a bid. Their workers were courteous and professional and kept my home clean throughout the painting process. At the last minute I asked if they could also refinish my front porch and they were able to accommodate the additional work within a couple of days.
Recent Review: Kory, the owner, is super. He is prompt, very thorough, knows a lot about construction, materials etc. is creative in suggesting solutions. In short, he is head and shoulders better than many others I have used. His price is reasonable, and he even absorbed some of the excess cost over his bid, which was otherwise right one. His workmen are first rate. They show up on time, do the work well and are very accommodating.
Recent Review: He is a very professional guy. He said he'd be here at 8:00 and he was here a few minutes before. He works out in the yard, does decks, or anything you need him to do. He is doing it by hand with a brush because he said the power-washer could split the wood. He is careful with my plants. He is very professionally dressed and his truck is immaculate. I am thrilled to have him.
