All Deck...All the Time!

What's the status on your deck? Is it falling apart? Do you power wash the cement? Are you one of those residents who don't stick to the "clear natural stain" only policy?

It's not falling apart but needs a power washing. Will get that done in April. I know a reputable handyman (not associated with the you know whos)--if anyone wants to join me for a group discount, cool.

Who is your handyman?

Imperial is ok, very expensive. The management office contracts them for painting, etc, but they always make you feel like they're doing you a huge favor.

For decks I'd try Craigslist.

Get estimates. They're are plenty of hungry contractors who will do a good job and it won't cost you an arm and a leg.

For HVAC I'd go with someone who's bonded and Liscensed. And don't be afraid to ask for referrals.

GMR rebuilt my deck. They worked quickly, did a nice job, and charged a reasonable price. If the supports are still good its an easy job.

Mine is falling apart. We're supposed to get it fixed in a few weeks. It keeps getting postponed due to the weather.

I'm using Potomac Handyman & Remodeling for the repairs that need to be done.
