Hi all,

My deck needs a facelift after 26 years. I’ve had a couple of people out to look at it and then the typical mountain ghosting, no estimate ever forthcoming. I am sick and tired of this behavior and would love someone to actually give me a realistic bid and then actually show up and do the work. Recommendations for good people will be appreciated.

Thanks. I am sick and tired of being ghosted by people, just want someone reliable to do business with. If someone can’t spend a few minutes to actually send me a bid or say I can’t do your project, then you cannot work for me.

Did you ever find anyone? I'm having the same problem. They advertise what they do and then don't answer the phone and don't return calls. How hard is it to call someone with an explanation if they can do the job or not.

Freedom Homeworks, listed in pinecam ads. He called right back, came out & gave an estimate. Very personable and reliable. I was tired of that treatment too and Jeff was very good about calling back, and doing work on deck promptly.

I had the same experience last fall when trying to find someone to stain the south/east side of my house, replace a few pieces of cedar siding etc.. One guy showed up 3 weeks after I called, looked it over, took measurements, never heard from him again!
Was finally able to reach another company that advertises here on Pinecam, the owner was pleasant and once they were able to get someone to come and look at what I wanted done, they were able to schedule it, and sent me an estimate. What I did not realize was that the owner of the company himself is no longer local to our community, and hires out local guys to handle the work.
They did come out and complete the job, and although the stain looks good on the house, it does NOT look so good on the windows and trim and deck where they were not so detailed in masking, covering things. I was able to scrape the dried stain from the exterior glass, but there are other areas that they dripped stain that I can't clean off.
I would like to get my deck cleaned and stained soon, so I'll be looking for yet another different company, let us Pinecammers who you choose and if you are satisfied!

Same issue here.I did hire someone and the structural work was great. Staining, not so good. My deck was left half done. I’ll geton my hands and knees in my mid 60s and do it myself.
