“It was a good experience. I’d give Deck Tech an A+. I’m very happy. Everything looks wonderful. They did the whole process. I have already recommended them.”
“They did a really nice job. Our deck needed a lot of work, and it looks pretty good. They were very clean—they were spotless. I’d give them an A+.”
“I'd give Deck Tech an A. I've used them eight or ten times. They do really good work. They've stained two large decks and a gazebo over the years, and they've always done a great job.”
“We were very pleased. They were pretty meticulous. They covered the property so the decking paint didn't get all over everything—I was pleased with that. They're an A.”
“They did a really nice staining job. I'd give them an A+ rating.”
“I'd give it an A+ overall. Deck Tech sealed and stained my new fence.”
“I'd give them an A+. They've been good. They sanded and stained my deck. They did a good job overall. They kept everything clean and they did a covering of my plants, so nothing was ruined.”
“I'd give them an A+ grade. They refinished my deck.”
“It was A+ work.”
“I would give them an A+. They did a deck for me.”
“They did a great job. I'd give them an A overall. The guy who did the work prepping the deck and cleaning it did a really thorough job.”
“I'd give it an A grade. They stained my decks. I've used them twice.”
“I would give them an A. They followed through on everything like they said they would. They stained a deck. We had a deck that was brand new and needed staining. I'd recommend them.”
“I'd give them an A. I had no problems and they were here when they said they'd be. In fact, they did more than I expected. They prepared and stained the deck and the stairs leading up to it. There's a square around the deck and they did that as well. I would recommend them.”
“They were accurate, very neat, and precise. They did a very nice job. They recoated a porch and a wheelchair ramp. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were fast, efficient, and friendly. We have a redwood deck on top of our garage that they power washed and stained. I'd give them an A+.”
“The people were professional. Everybody spoke English. Generally, everybody was nice. My sales girl was Annette, and she was very nice. The work that they did was, they redid my deck in the back. They cleaned it and put a coat on there. I'd give them an A+. Everything was good; no complaints.”
“They did the work within the time they said they would. They helped stain our back deck. I'd give them an A-. I liked the end result. It was kind of hard to get it scheduled, but once it was scheduled, everything went well. Everything seems great.”
“With Deck Tech the weather always comes into play. Once they were able to schedule to have my deck redone, the crew came out. They put up tarps along the side of the house so that it would protect the house from when they had to remove the stain and for when they had to put the stain on. So they're efficient and clean in that manner. They worked their tails off. They kept the work clean and made sure nothing got on the sides of my house. I would give them an A. I don't know any better, but I was very pleased.”
“The guys who were working in the back were pretty thorough. I liked that. They stained a deck. They sanded it down and stained it. Overall, I'd give them an A.”
“I liked the way they cleaned up after themselves, and the results are wonderful. They were very businesslike, so they just took care of their business, and that was it. They did deck work and pressure washing for me, and the reason I chose them is because someone else recommend them. I'd give them an excellent grade—A.”
“They did a good job, and it looked wonderful. They didn't charge more than they said they would. They did deck work and pressure cleaning of the old deck. I'd give them an A.”
“They did very nice work, and they were prompt and quick. I would recommend them. They pressure washed a deck, gave it a good cleaning, and then stained it. They work hard—I was amazed. The guy showed up around four o'clock, and I thought, 'There's no way they're going to get this.' But they just kept working until they were done at seven o'clock. They did what they said they'd do, so I have no complaints. I'd give them an A.”
“They did the job with no fanfare. They just came, did it, did a good job, and were easy to work with. They stained a deck and also did pressure washing. It was a brand-new deck, so they cleaned it first. I found out about them from my contractor. They get an A from me. It was very no-nonsense, which was great.”
“They do a wonderful job pressure washing and sealing the deck. They did everything they said they were going to do. I'm pretty rough, pretty hard on people, and I'm giving them an A.”
“They were fantastic. They pressure washed, stripped, and re-stained an old deck. There was nothing at all that I didn't like, so I would call them back again. I heard about them from the neighbors who had them do their house. I would give them an A for sure.”
“They did pressure washing and sealing. They were extremely professional, scraped it, and got the job done. I expected a really nice job, but they went over and above. They sanded everything down to a nice smooth service, and then they covered everything, and even left us a little extra in case we needed to touch it up later on. They get an A all the way.”
“They gave us the time in which they were going to do it, came, got it done, and that was it. They cleaned and resealed a deck, and the reason I chose them is because we had used them before, so I would recommend this company to others. I'd give them A+.”
“I liked the scheduling, customer service, accommodation, and of course, the work itself. They did power washing, so it was general cleaning, rejuvenating, and staining. I'd definitely rate them A+.”
“They've done our deck three times, and we didn't have to do anything. They came in, cleaned it up, put the color on, and that was it. The first time they came, the deck was new, and now it's 15 years old. They get an A+.”
“They always do a really good job. Every time they've come, they've taken the time to sand down the deck, and they're very neat. They keep plastic up to protect the bushes around the deck, they're very courteous and professional, and they do a nice job. They've stripped the deck and re-stained it. The reason I choose them is because they're the ones that originally did the deck, so, of course, I continued with them. I'd rate them A+.”
“They were on time and finished the job nice, so that was pretty good. I had a small deck that they stained and painted. I'd give them an A.”
“So far, their product is fine, and their workmanship is fine. They did a clean job, protected the house and shrubbery, and cleaned up after themselves. There was no spillage. They just stained my wooden deck this summer, but it seems fine still. They did A work.”
“They did a really nice job of prepping the deck before they stained it. They put in drop cloths so none of the stuff got away from them. Because the wood was so weathered, the first coat didn't really cover it all that well in certain places. They came back for no charge and did it again so that it would fully coat the wood, so we were very happy with them. I chose them because the sales guy was real good. He talked to me, gave me a lot of good advice, and sold the deal very well. I'd give them an A.”
“They showed up on time, and they did the job they said they would. They did pressure washing on the deck. I'd grade them an A.”
“They stripped, pressure washed, and restained my deck. Their process is pretty good to work with once the guys come out. Coordinating when and what was done was pretty good, and communication was good. When you do projects like that, a lot of things have to align, including weather. Once they were able to come out, everything got done quickly. We chose them because we'd seen them in Best Pick Reports. They get an A from me.”
“They power washed and sealed the deck, and they did a very good job. They made a 23-year-old deck look like it was brand-new. They were very professional and picked up after themselves. We first had them do the deck more than ten years ago, and then when it was time to do it again, we called them back because we were happy with the work the first time. I'm a hard grader, and I'd give them an A.”
“We were satisfied with their work. They did what they said they were going to do. They refinished our deck, and we didn't have any issues, so I'll rate them A.”
“They cleaned and stained my deck. They did pressure washing, also. They did it while I was work, and I know they came back the second time, but I understood from the beginning that it was a multi-step process. They get an A.”
“They pressure washed and restained my deck. They treated the deck first so they could put some new stain on it. They came, did their job, and cleaned up. So far, everything seems to be OK. I give them an A.”
“They did a great job. They cleaned and stained two decks in our home. My wife and I had just bought the house, and our Realtor recommended them to us. They were actually pretty good. All we had to do was let them in, so they had access to everything, and they did a really good job. Just the fact that I didn't have to be at home was good enough for me, so I'd definitely give them an A.”
“They washed, sealed, and stained my wooden deck. They lived up to everything they said. They were on time, they did the work very well, and I'm happy with the service. They get an A.”
“They just refinished a deck and a porch for me, which included pressure washing and sealing. They did a good enough job for me. I'd give them an A.”
“They're fine. I've been a longtime customer. They've done power washing and staining for me, and it's been about three years since the last one. I like the finished end result because the deck looks much better than it had before. The only negative was they couldn't come out when they said they were going to, initially, because of some other backlogs. There was no real rush on our part to get the deck done, so it wasn't an issue. I view that as secondary in importance, relative to just having the deck be a lot cleaner looking now and stained better. It needed a rejuvenation. It had gone three years without one, so it was looking pretty bad. They get an A.”
“They did deck pressure washing and sealing. They're very professional. They do grade-A work.”
“They did a thorough job, and they did in the correct time, so it worked out fine. They did deck pressure washing and sealing. I chose them because they were the first ones that I called. I'd give them an A.”
“I just liked the end result. They did pressure washing and sealing. They were an A company.”
“They cleaned our deck. I'd give them an A.”
“They re-stained and finished my deck, and it was mostly hassle-free. They did a nice job, and I liked that it was easy. Since they did a really nice job, I'll grade them an A.”
“They're very quick. They did pressure washing and sealing. They get an A.”
“They're a good company. They did a fence for me recently, but they've also done the deck at my other house. I've used them for probably 26 years, so I'd tell anyone to use them because they're a great company. They've earned an A.”
“I'd give them an A.”
“I like them and they job they did.”
“They did pressure washing and sealing. I like them because they did a really good job, so I'm really very pleased with their work. It was done in a timely manner, so it was just very positive. They definitely get an A.”
“They did pressure washing and sealing, and they were really easy to work with. They came out, did what they had to do, and when we had some issues, they came out and took care of it right away. We've used them before previously. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a deck and the front staircase. They're quick and efficient, and they'd done it for me before, so it's easy when they come and do it. They also accommodated my schedule, so I would recommend them to anybody and give them an A.”
“It was a fine experience. I like that they did what they said they were going to do, and they did it the way they said they were going to do it. In the end, it was fine because they followed the procedure they said they were going to follow. They did grade-A work.”
“From what I can see, they did a great job with the pressure washing and deck staining. We'd done business with them in the past. I'd rate them A.”
“They did the pressure washing and staining that I needed, and I think they did a nice job. I have a painter who's worked here before, and when I asked him if he would do that, he said no, but he recommended Deck Tech. I'd give them an A.”
“They did pressure washing and sealing work for me this past spring, and they did a great job. I'd worked with them before, so I had a good experience with them. They're pretty thorough, and they know what they're doing. They power washed it first, let it dry, and then they came back out. It was spread out, but it was only a two-day job. I paid them to put the furniture back, so they came back and did that for me, and everything was fine. It was really an A job.”
“They did a great job pressure washing and sealing. They came on time, worked very hard, taped off the house, and everything was good, so they did a real nice job. They get an A from me.”
“They did pressure washing and sealing. They did a great job, so everything is OK. I would recommend them and give them an A.”
“I liked the way Deck Tech cleaned up after themselves. They did deck work and pressure washing for me. The results are wonderful. They were very businesslike. I'd give them an excellent rating. They're an A.”
“They resealed three of my decks, and they did a very good job. It was all done in a timely manner and with good customer service. This is the second time I've used them, and I've never had any issues. The work has held up; it's perfect. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were fantastic. They stripped an old deck and restained it, and they did pressure washing as well. There was nothing at all I didn't like, and I would call them back again. I would give them an A, for sure.”
“Deck Tech redid my deck, and it looks like new. The staff was excellent. I was very pleased. I'd give them an A.”
“They cleaned and sealed a deck for me. They were extremely thorough, their quality was excellent, and they were on time. All around, it was a good experience. I also used them at least seven or eight years ago. I'd give Deck Tech an A+.”
“I think Deck Tech was thorough, and they did what they said they'd do. They came out and gave us a quote on what would be done, and then it got done. It seems like it's in good shape. I really haven't seen it for months; we literally had snow on it until a couple weeks ago. I'd have to give them an A+ because I have no complaints at this point.”
“Years ago, they did our deck, but then last summer, we had our play gym stained and sealed because we had carpenter bees, and we were told that would help. It ended up looking really nice. It was clean, and they were nice. There were no problems at all. They were fast, too. I'd give them an A+, and we would definitely use them again.”
“I thought they were good. They were very clean about what they did. They covered everything up nicely, and they didn't get any of the spray around any of our other property or on our bushes or shrubbery. They were here when they said they'd be, they did their job, and it was good. It worked out for us. This was the second time we've used them. We recommended them to our neighbor next door, and she had them. Deck Tech is A+.”
“They power washed my fence and my deck, and they stained and sealed both. I've been satisfied with the results. The customer service was great. I didn't have to be here. Everything was scheduled, and everything was easy over the phone. Everything was cleaned up and taken care of well. I'd grade them as an A.”
“They did a great job of washing. They were much better than the company we'd previously used. Our 20-something-year-old deck looks much better. They did not damage the plants, and the finished work was great. I found Deck Tech through a friend who had used them. They're an A.”
“Deck Tech did staining. I don't think I've had to call them back to fix something. Considering I've had them here a few times, I would give them an A rating.”
“They cleaned it up and stained it. I was happy with them. I liked that I didn't have to be there. They gave me an estimate, they did the work, and everything was just as they promised. This was the second time I used them; they did it five years ago, too. I'd give them an A.”
“They were very careful not to get any of the stain or any of the cleaning products on the rest of my house. They even had the windows and the brick taped, and they cleaned up everything. They were very, very efficient, and it was an excellent job. They definitely deserve an A.”
“They did some deck work for me. They hosed it down and then stained it, and they did a good job. As far as I know, the work has held up, so they'd get an A from me.”
“I've had them clean and seal my deck before. They're certainly dependable. The first time I had had them out, I was very pleased, and they were the same this time. I have no complaints at all. I would say that Deck Tech is an A.”
“When they restained it, they washed it first, and then they came another day and stained it. They did the job, and they cleaned up afterward. It was satisfactory. I'd give them an A.”
“Deck Tech refinished it. I've used them for three years, and there isn't anything I feel they could do better. The deck looks good after it's done, and I feel like I get what I pay for. I would give them an A rating.”
“They've done some deck work for me. I liked a lot of things. They came out and did the estimate, and I was able to pay in stages. They kept me informed. They worked toward the end of fall, so they ran into some icy weather, but they fit the work in right when it was feasible, before all the cold weather settled in. I felt like my deck got its treatment before any issues, and it really needed the work. They get A—definitely.”
“Deck Tech did some patching, and they sealed it. They were thorough and clean. There isn't anything I believed they could do better—they were great. I'd grade them as an A.”
“Deck Tech stripped and stained my deck, and they did a fine job on it. I used to do it myself, but I don't have time to do it anymore. They get an A grade in my book.”
“They restored my deck; it was a two-toned job. They were professional, and I've been satisfied with the results. There was just a little bit of a delay, but once they started, they were very good. I would give them an A.”
“We did a stain. We've used Deck Tech every few years for probably close to 15 years. They're professional in making the appointment, but we did have a couple of instances where the person who set up the appointment gave us one piece of information, and when the guys got here, it was different. We got that straightened out. They seemed very professional, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A rating.”
“They did what they said they were going to do, number one. Number two, the solution that they put on the deck does its job, and it lasted as long as they said it was going to last—four to five years. This was the second time I had them do this. What they use is eco-friendly, and they're very clean. They do it, and they're out of here without a mess. There hasn't been any trouble with scheduling or missing appointments. I'm happy with them. There was a little outfit that I worked with eight years ago to do my deck, and I was very unhappy with them. I had them do it again. They were terrible, but Deck Tech did the right job the first time like they said they would. They have earned an A+.”
“I'm just very happy that I got a good job. It started with Jackie, who discussed my project with me. She was thorough and understanding, and she answered my questions. She was willing to come back out a second time to speak with me, and the other companies weren't even willing to speak with me once. I had five different companies come out or attempt to come out. I told the ones that said they didn't care if I was here or not that I didn't even want to bother—I wanted to speak with a person. When the three fellows came out to do the job, they explained what they were going to do and how they were going to do. They tented the entire back area of my house to make sure nothing got on my home. They were very, very pleasant and nice. I brought them out cold drinks, and they were very grateful and thanked me. When they finished the job, there was not one thing left behind—no scraps of paper, debris, or anything. I had two little areas that I wanted touched up, and they very politely, and without any hesitation, came back from their truck with their paint and took care of it for me. To back up the A+ grade I would give them, I have referred them, which I never would have done if I didn't care for them. I called the company and asked them to send me some business cards, and I have handed them out. A neighbor did consequently use them.”
“Deck Tech did what they said they would do. I'd had problems with the deck in the past, and they cured the problem when they sealed the deck, so I was very, very pleased. They were prompt and courteous. It was one of the better experiences I've had with contractors. I'd give them an A+. I was very happy with them.”
“Deck Tech is a great company. I would recommend them to anybody. They were fantastic, and I would give them the best score there is. They're A+.”
“They do a wonderful job. My relationship with them goes back about four or five years. They've done pressure washing, sanding, and staining for me, and I've been satisfied with the results.”
“Deck Tech is great. I was 100 percent satisfied with them. I would give them an A+. They did a great job.”
“We'd recommend Deck Tech. They came out one day and didn't really have the staff I thought they were going to have—a lot of the work was on one man. Then, the advisors came back to check out the work, and they actually sent more workers back. I was satisfied with the result. They removed the old stain, and it was some hard work to do it. They got it looking really good for a one-time application. They had warned me it wouldn't all come off in one go, and they'll have to come back several years later when it comes time to do it again. They set expectations, and they met them. I think they got like 96 percent of the old stain off, so they really did a pretty good job. They should get an A.”
“Deck Tech stripped and refinished my back deck. Their customer service was excellent, and they cleaned up after they finished. Their quality of their work was high—it was a very good quality job. I'm very happy with the job that they did. I would say they are an A+ company.”
“Deck Tech power washed and sanded our deck. They were very neat. They covered what needed to be covered, and they did an excellent job as far as I'm concerned. I would give them an A+.”
“Deck Tech was great. Last year, they did my deck, and this year, they did my cedar porch. When they got some of the solution on the inside of the porch, they came and cleaned it all up, and they finished the inside of the porch itself. It looks beautiful now that it's done. The work was finished in a reasonable amount of time. I had no problems. I would recommend the company. I'd say they deserve an A.”
“We used Deck Tech. It was a positive experience—A+. We've been using them for about six years. By the time they power washed it, it looked like a whole new deck.”
“I used Deck Tech. My deck looked a lot better when the crew was finished. They were an A+.”
“They resurfaced all the flat boards on the deck. The quality of the work was very good, and so was their customer service. They cleaned up after themselves, and they finished in a reasonable amount of time. They rate an A+.”
“My deck was cleaned and stained by Deck Tech. I was pleased with them. I would rate the whole experience an A—both the technicians and the cleanup.”
“Deck Tech did work twice. They refinished my deck. It, of course, gets all the weather, but I do have a cover on it; my husband put an awning over the whole deck. I have nothing bad to say about them. I was pleased. I felt like they knew what they were doing. I would give them an A.”
“Deck Tech did good work. They did deck pressure washing for us. They responded to our request in a timely fashion, and the technicians had good attitudes. I would use them again. I'd give them an A.”
