came over to my house to give me an estimate, it was more than I thought it would be for what we had done. We are happy with the quality" of work. It took several weeks for his crew to begin working and several weeks for them to complete the work. He did not include the engineering fee's in his estimate. Its was a complete and total surprise when were charged for it!

"I am extremely pleased with the service and the result. Bill came out promptly to give an estimate. His cost was higher than other bids that I requested, but the" process he uses is significantly more labor intensive. Instead of chemically stripping the deck, his process employs two rounds of sanding before stain application. Additionally, he was the ONLY contractor that mentioned resetting any nails/screws that were backing out. The guys that came to do the work were professional, courteous, and hardworking. They moved ALL of the furniture, plants, and two barbecues from the deck. It was clear that they were very detailed about their work and took pride in it. The final result was outstanding. The deck has never looked this good, and this is the third restaining that I've had done (the first two times by a different contractor). The guys even returned after the stain was fully dry to put the stuff back on the deck and to make sure the area was cleaned. Overall, a very positive experience and a beautiful result. I highly recommend this contractor.

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.

Pressure Washing, Deck Maintenance, Landscaping

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

?
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.

powerwash cleaned my deck. They blew debris everywhere that dried on all the surrounding house, grill (relocated 15 ft away), basement windows, side windows, and kids playground equipment. I ended up cleaning all those items myself.
They came out the first time approximately 3 weeks later and stained my deck. When I came home, I noticed several areas of my deck were not stained, not sanded, and there were stains running down my vertical black railings that needed to be cleaned off. I sent a detail email with pictures explaining the issues. No apology or explanation was given and after calling them again several days later, they came out to address these issues. They restained my deck a third time, with a different color that I did not ask for, and left the invoice for the remaining amount in my mailbox. Once again, I took new pictures of all the areas not even stained once, not sanded once, and the railings not cleaned with drip

on them. I asked to meet them at my residence to review these items one by one this time. I reminded them twice to give me a time they would visit my deck to review these items with me.They did not. They came out to fix these issues again not notifying when they would visit or what they were going to do. Once again I took new pictures and sent it to them in an email asking to stain the panels of wood that have never been stained, sand the unsanded areas, and wipe off the railings from the stain or cleaning debris they left there.

Reibe charges the remaining amount to my credit card (50%) without my authorization and then sends me an email of what he did in that order. Once again I have portions of my deck that have never been stained, railings that were not cleaned, and areas that have never been sanded. I can only conclude that

He did a really bad job. Some places the stain did not work. He killed some plants even though he said he would cover them. He dumped the materials on the grass and it died as well.

I got them on Angie's List. It was reasonable otherwise I wouldn't have had them. It was very nice. When he first came to give me an estimate, we knew it was going to take a while. They came when it was ready. They called me when the weather was nice so he could do it. The workers were very pleasant. The price was about what I expected.

This review involves 3 service providers that I called for my deck refurbishing (cleaning, sanding, & restain). More details below, but the bottom line is that I had the best luck with the category of home maintenance (rather than deck maintenance), such as

It’s a large deck, with main section over 60 feet long, and there is also an adjacent side deck where the hot tub sits. Portland Deck Refinishing called me and said they were coming out to give a bid. They never followed up with the bid or a call back. Deck Renovations was nice enough to come out, but told me my deck was in bad condition and needed a lot of work done.
