A bit Torn on writing this, I try to give the benefit of the doubt, and not always complain.
Ray was great, although very professional, very polite, on time, knowledgeable, I am not at all pleased with the work done, it seemed rushed, incomplete, missing pieces, poorly and sloppily done.
We had discussed prior that a cleaning was needed, there was green algae on water pooling points on the deck. This was not cleaned, I was home at the start and Ray and his assistant just started staining the deck. This was to be cleaned prior to staining, as written in the email quote.
I confirmed with Ray as to what type of stain to get and how much, I was told a Semi Transparent deck stain. Stated that this would cover up most of the little stains etc.
This did not, and upon closer inspection the stain was not applied evenly at all, where you can see roller marks, and double layers where the roller overlapped.
The Fence, looks awful. its blotchy and has dark spots. This container was $160 plus tax,
I spoke with Ray, letting him know I was not impressed and that much had been missed. The front edge of the deck was not done,the roller marks were visible etc. He came back several days later, and redid some (only the deck, not the fence etc) , with a different stain, and Opaque stain(Same color, different look) Adding to this, I saw bird droppings on the deck, right above the steps, the day he was to return to finish it. I did not have a chance to clean them up. When he was there, I watched him try to paint over them. Now, the bird droppings are bleeding through the stain, and are not removable. I have tried a coat over top, and they wont go away.
So due to the different Semi Transparent, and now the Opaque Stain, We have two completely different looks in the back yard.
The fence has a blotchy semi transparent stain,
The deck and external fence has an awful "poo" paint look to it.
Going through and completing work in the back yard it seems more and more was missed, or semi done. (Spots of semi transparent paint, mixed with Opaque stain over top)
This is extremely frustrating when going to sale.
I was quoted at $875, including cleaner, material, and Labor. I will end up spending approximately another $300 fixing this.
Extremely happy with my choice to hire RaySon Electric & General Contracting. I had a rotted 2 level deck. Raymond went over my plans in detail, came up with options and solutions. He started on time everyday and worked virtually non-stop. His attention to detail and customer satisfaction is first rate.
I'm thrilled with my new deck. I highly recommend RaySon for all your contracting needs.
Raymond showed up on time and did a very good job He's easy to deal with and very knowledgeable. Would use him again and refer to my friends/family.
