"Restored roof damage, interior damage including large structural beam.
was amazing to work with. He was honest, fair and prompt.
" 's team did excellent work restoring unexpected tree damage that was fairly significant.
went out of his way to locate an "heirloom" structural beam of similar vintage to the 1955 modern home. The replacement beam was the crown-jewel of the project, as anything less than a beam that perfectly matched the house would have ruined the restoration. I unreservedly recommend

"Everything went fairly well. The install of the riprap only took about a week. The only problem was that it had rained the night before and there was pretty extensive" damage done to the lawn. It ended up costing approximately $4000 in new sod to repair. It probably should have been put off another week. When I asked about them about repairing the lawn they referred me to a landscape company. They told me that it is part of the business. Overall I am satisfied with the riprap they installed. They even replaced some of the dock that was damaged.

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.

They built a great deck for my home and they showed up on time all the time. The deck turned out great for my family to enjoy in the coming summer! Everyone loves it so much.

He came out and did not finish the work, stopped the process in the middle of the job. He is someone to stay away from, he does not have the credintials to be working. He is not to be trusted.

I was a wonderful experience and they were great. We had some water problems and he worked with the township and he did whatever they said. They wanted a filter put on the deck and he told them that it wouldn't be necessary. He got it to what would work for us. It only a slight cost more. He did a beautiful job on the deck. He started it and finished it when he said he would. He worked straight through until it was done. He put what was required underneath the deck. He saw to it that it passed.

They did come out and give an estimate and they were very nice, but we had scheduling issues with them. We initially tried to get the work scheduled, and thought that we did. However, it seems that our scheduling was bumped for a larger job. We contacted Angie's List for a refund.

I thought when we signed up with Angie's list they would be weeding out the contractors who are not professional.
Nashua Deck Builders Provider Name Locked
came over and looked at two different projects that we need done in our home. One to be completed ASAP (cash in hand now) and the other in the fall. He seemed very nice and knowledgeable on the tasks at hand. When he left he informed us that it might be as late as the next week before he would be able to get a bid to us.....well, it has been 3 weeks and I have not even received a courtesy call. If you don't want the business, the job, or don't have the time, you should still return a call. I am very disappointed in the professionalism of some of the businesses that Angie's list allows on their website.

was very prompt, responsive, and professional. He scheduled a date and time to come out and measure for a new patio and covered patio for our backyard along with a sidewalk and small area for garbage cans. He arrived on time and called to let me know he was on schedule. He provided a thorough bid within 2 weeks of the visit. We ultimately decided to go with another vendor but not due to pricing. His pricing was right in line with other bids. The other vendor we chose could roll in some hardscape work and provided better visual representation of the work we wanted done so we went with them. I would recommend them and would definitely have them bid on future projects.
