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.

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.

?

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.

flooring from Home Depot and Lowes. IMPORTANT - buy Trex railings etc. from either Home Depot OR Lowes - not both. Produc differs - ran into huge problem due to that factor. Contractor grasped exactly what we wanted and had homeowner assist him as homeowner is acquaintance of contractor and has knowledge of carpentry. Contractor suggested several finish ideas that were incorporated into finished product. Homeowner very pleased with outcome.
Paid contractor for labor - homeowner purchased windows, doors, stock, etc out of pocket.

has done a lot of work on our home over the years to deck extension, roofing, door installation and others. Not only does he do great work for a reasonable price,hhe is trustworthy and is at your home working when he tells you he will be. No chasing him down wanting to know when work will be completed like other repairmen I have used before.

We hired

to do a kitchen remodel, tiling and painting.
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team were great to work with. I interviewed
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
along with several other contractors for the job.
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was by far the most professional and answered our many questions about the remodeling process. He was not the least expensive but as they say you get what you pay for. He came highly recommended and we are very happy with the outcome.
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was very communicative during the entire process- we were very clear as to what to expect each day and the time frame of when different aspects of the job would be completed.
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
had a tight timeline which he amazingly kept. He coordinated the subcontractors (electrician, flooring, and plumbing) and kept them all to a timeline. Our kitchen (including flooring of other areas of the house, and painting) was completed in 5 weeks. He made the entire process livable by doing key things i.e. we were never without a fridge, and during the tiling phase when you can't walk on the tile he built a bridge for us to walk over so we would have access to all parts of the house. I don't think most contractors would have taken the time to do these things.
Carrollton Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
was on the job just about every day- his team worked 6 days/week and we felt very comfortable with the entire team. He was always accessible- any issues/questions he would respond quickly. All of his subcontractors and workers were very professional and respectful of our home. I anticipate that we will be using him for projects in the future.

did a fantastic job! - Initial Meeting: I had an idea of the type of new deck I wanted (layout, seating, etc.), but they came up with an even better design based on years of practical experience. They thought of things I never would have and developed a wonderful design. - During construction: The men on the site were very friendly and courteous. Just before the build got started I wanted to change the length of one set of stairs and the material of some of the supports. They catered to these adjustments perfectly. The build was done on time and bang on budget. - Durability: It's been a couple of years since we had the new deck put in. I've stained it twice just to make sure the wood stays protected. The construction is holding up very well. We couldn't be happier!
