"The price for the deck was comparable to 6 or so quotes I had received from other builders. Based on discussions with the project manager (
" ), seeing pictures of prior jobs, and reading Angie's List reviews, I felt that
would provide a superior deck and thus decided to go with them. Construction was scheduled to begin a couple months after signing the contract. However, things initially got started about a month late because of a prior job running over, and then a mix-up with the permits. However, once the 2-person crew showed up, they began working quite quickly and were friendly and considerate. Total construction time was a bit over a month. With respect to the final product, I am happy with the quality of the deck and have received many compliments. There were a few things along the way that I asked
to take a look at, and each of them was fixed right away. I would use
& Patio again for future jobs.

"
and his crew arrived in a timely fashion. Got straight to work on preparing site for our new deck. We had worked out all of the details w/
" when we signed our contract. We even had an unexpected situation come up, and
and
worked out how to fix and repair the issue and then continue on with the deck. Thus, showing us that they are very knowledgeable with home repair and how to fix things correctly.
and
stayed with their task and did a Super Job. Our deck is just beautiful. My husband is disabled and can finally go outside our back yard, and can easily access the new deck.
and
did a terrific job.
(the owner of R&R) even took the time to stop by one day to meet us.

I agree with Jim Casper - after about 50 years of dealing with weathered wood finishing both in my homes and in the construction business, it comes down to about 90% preparation, 10% the finishing. If you do not prep the wood right, any moisture, mold, etc in the wood will destroy whatever you put over it.

High-build finishes like paint and epoxies and, from reading the Rustoleum flyer on this new product that too, work by trying to make an impenetrable surface and depend on a very good bond with the surface, AND no water getting under them. Because they are thick and are designed to provide a waterproof surface, unfortunately where water gets under them they are just as good or better at keeping it from evaporating, so you get fungal growth, blistering, and peeling.

Unfortunately, on deck and most outdoor applications except siding the surface will get nicked, scratched and otherwise develop leaks in short order. Water will therefore get into the underlying wood, and because it entered through small cracks and scratches, does not have any airflow to make it evaporate, so it sits there and breaks the finish bond to the wood (causing peeling and blisters), and promotes decay. That is why new deck boards and siding and trim that have been heavily or multi-coat painted on all 4 sides, thinking that will give the best protection, only last a few years versus the usual 10-20 years or so for boards that are painted top and sides only.

The full sun and hot conditions will, of course, cause more thann normal heating of dark colored painted decking. I had one instance where I was doing an independent appraisal of a very large commercial deck at a government facility, and in 85-90 degree daytime temps, in the sushine the chocolate brown deck surface temp was 150 degrees, and the paint was softening so much it stuck to the bottom of your shoes a couple of months after application.

As Jim said, the studies pretty clearly show that a breathable penetrating stain gives the best life, after plain ACA/CCA (copper chromium variations - the green stuff) treated wood. Penetrating stains, properly applied, do NOT seal in the moisture, they inhibit its entry and (when dark colored) help protect against sun damage to the wood and finish, but still breathe enough to let moisture escape on dry days. For my money, I will only use petroleum distillate (paint thinner cleanup) products, as they penetrate into the wood much better. Water based ones immediately start swelling the wood pores, so it blocks further penetration of the stain, which while cleanup is a bit easier, totally defeats the purpose of a PENETRATING stain or sealer.

I would recommend against any sort of waterproofing sealer, as they trap the water just like paint, and I have never seen one that is effective for 2 years.

My personal preference, though it limits the architectural coloration possibilities, is ground-contact rated copper compound treated wood (NOT the Wolmanized brown product), which comes green initially but can be retreated with either green or brown solution or can be liquid colorized darker (though not easily to a specific tone) using either of those as a base. My practice is to redo the treatment before installation to ensure thorough treatment, as from the mill it commonly has skips where boards contacted each other or where stacking seperators laid on it, and the ends are commonly very poorly done. This is done after cutting to length, as cut ends have to be retreated anyway.  A simple short deck cleaner soak followed by a light pressure washing and brush or roller re-treating of ONLY the TOP surface every 10 years or so has, for me, reduced visible weathering of the boards and beams to negligible.

?
As stated by others: You get what you pay for.  Many contractors no longer use employees.  The cost/benefit ratio is gone by the time worker's comp. insurance, unemplyment and other taxes are paid.  Especially with the high turnover in our industry.  Many, myself included, have our guys set up as sub-contractors.  That means even if the job is only for a day the duties have been outlined and a set pay to complete those duties has been established from the onset.  It's a better way to manage costs once I got used to it.  Also, it means I can operate cheaper and not have to charge as much to the customer.  My agreements with my guys, which they sign, make it clear that I nor the homeowner are responsible for their safety and medical care should a problem arise and that all parties are relieved of any such obligation.  If you hire a contractor who follows this growing practice ask to see a copy of his sub-contractor agreement.

That being said, a legitimate contractor still has operating cost which vary by area and how they run their business.  I break even at $150/day not including labor and materials so I've got to charge more than that to make money.  To keep the math simple, if I'm paying $250 for a pne day job in labor plus another $300 in materials and $150 operating costs I've got to charge $700 to the customer to break even.  That's if I'm only doing one job a day which is why most of us manage several at a time.  The point I'm trying to make is that someone with the necessary knowledge and experience to build you a safe deck is not going to be cheap.  Knowledge accompanies success which costs money.

I've repaired or restructured several decks built by handymen who should find another profession.  Ask yourself this question when hiring someone for this project: Would I trust this person to build my house?  If the answer is no you need to find someone else.  The deck is just as important.  It's where your family, friends, kids are going to gather and interact.  If it isn't structurally sound it can collapse causing injury or even death.  One last word on decks: Always screw a deck together, don't nail it.

Assuming you buy the right size door to fit the rough opening, and that your old door is not a size that is no longer made, and that you get the correct depth and transition adapters and sills and flashing and trim and seals and such, and that you transport it home without distorting and damaging it, then removal and disposal of old one and install new one probably about $250-400 depending on how well it fits, number of transition and similar pieces that have to be assembled (from 1 or 2 for some doors to as many as 30 on others).

The laundry list of things at the start WAS intended to intimidate you - I would say not 1 in 25 homeowners who buy a new patio door have bought it the right size for the rough opening and have everything needed to install it - the contractor almost invariably has to go get materials or parts to complete the installation - sometimes waiting weeks for factory adapters that are needed or missing parts AFTER the original door has already been taken out.

I would question why you are going to probably spend as much installing a door that may not do the job for you as the cost of the door. I would hazard at least half of people who go buy a $250-400 cheap door at a box store are sorely disappointed within months - due to poorly fitted parts, bad or non-existent seals causing drafts or water leaks, fogging or breaking glass, etc.

I would recommend you assess your needs, in conjunction with your installer find a decent and reputable brand unit to fit that need and that fits the loction right, and probably pay 50% more installed but have something that you might actually be happy with. Oh - BTW - your best installers generally will not install the cheapest box store units because they do not want the callbacks, so many times the quality of the installer who will actually do the job for you at a price you are willing to pay gives you a job that is - you guessed it, worth what you paid for it.

?

The product has evolved considerably since the lawsuit.

 

I would still do your own research and give you contractor your feedback.  At the end of the day, the cost for whatever board you want will be similar.

He did a terrible job. He said he cleaned the floors before he began but realized afterward that the water had not been on during that time so he could not have washed. He rolled on the stain and left terrible lines. He said those would go away when he came back and sprayed the second coat. It did get better but you could still see some lines. He was supposed to scrub and wet vac the entire area before the finishing coat, as well as a final mop with clean water. Again, he was in and out so quickly there is no way he had time to wash it. Then, when he put on the top coat, he used a spray gun to put it on instead of rolling it. We had to go back and scrub it off and redo it ourselves. He showed up late on several days. He would say he was coming at a certain time but not show up. He also had the nerve to call and say that he went ahead and took the last of the clear coat since would wouldn't be using it. He was highly unprofessional. I would NEVER recommend this person to anyone.

runs the most professional contractor service with which I've ever dealt. He's the president of the company, which also includes his brother and his son. His quote was professional and had obviously been vetted by legal council. It is also clear that

.
Brunswick Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came to our home and discussed our project. He brought samples and took measurements. We made decisions on replacing the deck the same size using composite. Later we decided to add a screened in porch and to have a concrete pad poured beneath it. We also upgraded our initial composite selection to “Azek”.



The concrete pad took awhile to pour due to all the rains. Yet the forms were ready to go as soon as there was a break in the weather. Once the concrete was poured the project moved swiftly. All the work preformed was done professionally.

I had hardwood floors installed throughout the first floor of my house. NA Mans and their subcontractor did a great job! Very punctual, efficient, courteous, and they did a top notch job. They moved my furniture, removed all of the carpet, linoleum, and current hardwood and replaced it. I'm very satisfied.

Fabulous! The representative, Zeth, was thorough and informative. He was willing to work with me and came up with some good solutions. I loved the daily updates via their website where I could see what was going on. They were responsive and returned calls and emails promptly. My job was not a huge one but I was treated as if it was and as if I was the only job they had at the time. And the deck looks great!
