"Called
for an estimate and he arrived within 2 hours. He was upfront about the fact that he wasn't the least expensive option, but we" quickly found out that you get what you paid for.
's guys carefully prepared the deck (pressure washing and sanding), masked the house and other areas with huge sheets of plastic, and then used two coats of Deck Over to make our tired old deck look brand new. The results are beautiful!
's crew (
and
) were super nice and very responsive to any of our needs. I can't emphasize enough what a great job they did, and we have already talked to them about some other projects. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

"I have used

How to Stain Your Deck in 3 Easy Steps

If hiring a contractor isn't in the budget this year and you’re ready to take on the project yourself, learn these three easy steps to staining your deck.

Dear Angie: What kind of companies can I hire to pressure wash a home and a wood deck? Are there any risks with power washing? -- Alan M., River Vale, New Jersey

After a harsh winter, get your home looking fresh and clean with a professional pressure washing. (Photo by Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Dee G.)

Ready to tackle some deck maintenance? There are a lot of terms to understand, from joists to ledger boards. Here is a glossary of deck terms you should know.

Angie's Answers

?

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.

It was great. the company did a wonderful job and went above an beyond for the service they provided. They washed places I wasn't expecting them to get. I would highly recommend this service provider.

This provider came to apply a semi transparent, waterproof, sealant onto the deck. This is suppose to last up to six years. After the work was completed, there were footprints left in the surface of the deck, it has started bubbling, and the deck still have a "tacky" feel to it despite the fact that it's been three weeks since the job was completed. Someone is scheduled to come out this month to see what they can do to repair this. The deck itself is only one year old.

The weather caused a delay from the original date. The two fellas coordinated the work. One washed the deck and a couple of days later the paint was applied. The final cost was under the estimate.

I called three providers for estimates to refinish our 5 year old deck and

, the owner of

responded promptly. When
Roanoke Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
came out he explained what needed to be done, suggested a product he felt would work on our deck and gave me a written estimate. You must understand that our deck was over 1600 sq. ft. After receiving all three estimates and researching the products recommended, I decided that

was best for us. We did get other proposals. Some were very expensive and some did not seem possible to do to a deck which had three coats of solid stain applied over the past 5 years. Once decided, I called
Roanoke Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
and he gave me a date. His crew arrived on that date and began the work. It took three days and they were on top of the work at all time. Everyone was very professional and helpful. When finished the deck looked beautiful. We waited 5 days and then returned the furniture to the deck. It looks wonderful. I just hope the product holds up but after the research I did, I think it will.

We were very pleased with the professionalism and quality of work. There was perhaps a 6 week wait to get them out because they were booked up for that period of time and fighting the weather, (lots of rain). It was worth the wait. They didn't take chances with the weather and the crew of 4 or so completed the work in a very timely fashion once they got started. We had had a bad experience with a previous deck stain job, so we were rather shocked at how well the decks turned out. They didn't seem to skimp on the stain step, and no slop or untoward drips to be seen. Rather than track through the Master bedroom, they accessed the smaller deck with ladders. Not the cheapest around, but in this case I think we got excellent value for the money. We would definitely use them again.

I purchased a deal for $400. The technician explained the deal would not work due to the size and condition of my deck. He gave me a written quote for $1600. The work was excellent. The problem is the company will not refund my initial $400 paid via Angie's list with a credit card.

I thought

was very professional upon meeting him and also very polite. He appeared knowledgeable about his profession. I was referred to him by his brother who advertised on Angie's List and received great reviews. However, he didn't maintain decks and referred me to his brother,

. At the time,
Roanoke Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
was not even advertising on Angie's List and after meeting him, I encouraged him to do so like his brother. I love and have gotten great referrals from Angie's List and thought it would be great for his business. Point, we talked extensively about Angie's List and the fact that I appreciate the reviews and use that information in helping me decided who's services I will use. This is why I'm so shocked by how this encounter turned out.
First, after the work was done that
Roanoke Deck Cleaning Services Provider Name Locked
agreed to do and I took a look around, I was completely satisfied. Paid him $810 and he told me that he had registered with Angie's List and we just overall had a great exchange. However, once he left and the deck dryed a little, I noticed some imperfections that hadn't been visible when the deck was wet. I simply took a picture of the area I had concerns about and sent it to him and then called him. He told me that the deck was just old and that was the way the wood was and he would not be able to come back to look at the deck for a WEEK OR TWO. This mind you was approximately 2 hours after he left my home and cashed my $810 deck. Next, I noticed that all the grass on the outer side of the deck had been sprayed as well as the iron railings that are on my deck. He didn't bother to cover my railings, which were very expensive, or protect my grass which I had to nurse back to life from the chemicals. Also, he replaced a piece of wood that he didn't bother to cut the 45 degree angle tip off of. So, one side is just a straight piece of wood and the other is cut. Additionally, 2 of the planks he nailed down have come up because they were not nailed into wood. Unfortunately, I didn't observe these issues until after he left and some of them didn't happen immediately. He also told me that he was going to leave me some stain in the event I needed it for the future, which he didn't do. This relationship went from 10 to 0 in a few hours.
It has taken me this long to even report this experience because I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt. He's young and maybe this can be a learning experience for him. I contacted

again approximately two weeks ago to ask him to give me a call in hopes that he would simply back his work up. To this day, September 1, 2015, I NEVER got a respond from

from a job done on June 23-25.

Oasis did an outstanding job on the exterior of our house. Rotted wood was replaced in several areas of our cedar siding and mostly all trim areas of our home.

(the estimator) was great, our foreman

was very knowledgeable and walk us around showing the areas that needed work after the sanding. We felt confident that our home was in good hands and watched the process of them sanding and painting our our house.

Everyone was very professional and courteous, the work was reasonably priced within our budget, which was important. Would definitely call them for the interior of our house and would highly recommend this company.
