    I'd like your help in finding a company to help us with our deck. We need to fix my husband's deck resurfacing project :rolleyes3: He used a product from Home Depot called "Restore" and it has been a nightmare to work with; now hubby is giving up and wants a professional to fix/finish it (one day we'll learn our lesson and stop trying to do the job of professionals)

    My search on the boards only came up with a couple or recommendations (I've left msgs) and I'd like to know if you have used someone recently that you are happy with. Thanks in advance!

    I am also looking for recommendations for someone to clean and water seal the deck. Not looking for some dude with a power washer to just spray it to death. Can anyone recommend a vendor to try? (or one to avoid??)

    I used to recommend dominion powerwash but no longer, so please ignore my old endorsement of that company

    I have used Kris's Painting twice to do my deck, about four years apart. They do excellent work in both power washing and the stain they use is superior but has a very nice reddish color that we think looks really nice.

    are you guys finding Kris to be relatively significantly more expensive...or are his prices competitive?

    Hi Redon, we decided to power wash ourselves (okay, okay a family member might have helped ... a lot!) the staining was done by Montoya Painting. They did a great job but they are very busy, at least they were in the beginning of the summer. It was 3 weeks from the time of the estimate till they could start the job. Hope this helps!

    RESULTS: (I don't know my deck size, it's typical for a SFH in Broadlands, not huge, not small.)
    Montoya- booked estimate appt, they called day of to say they couldn't make it (van issues) and didn't call again to reschedule, so I moved on.
    Elite quote was highest, about $100 more than Kris
    Kris quote was reasonable, booked them based on good reviews.

    Very professional, great job done, deck looks great, job completed when they said it would be. would highly recommend them! Here's before and after pic.
