“I had a positive experience.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“I think the quality of the finish that they put on our deck and our playhouse was very high. It appears that it's going to hold up over a long period of time. We're satisfied with the product that they applied and the way they applied it. I would give them an A-. It took them a long time to schedule the initial bid appointment, a lot longer than it should've. Once we made contact with the sales representative, everything moved along very well.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They did a nice job. They were very timely, they were very competitive on their price, and showed up when they said they were going to do the work and got it done. And it looked good, time will tell how good it will last. I would grade them with an A. They could have been a little more informative, that's about it. When it stopped raining, they showed up and got the work done, and they were clean.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They did a great job. I was very pleased. They were backed up on their schedule but once they got to it, it was in summer time, they did a great job on the deck and the whole thing. I was very pleased with it. I'd give them an A+. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They're very efficient and they did a great job. I'd give Deck Tech an A+. They were just there for three hours. They did a heck of a job. Two guys, they cleaned the whole thing up. Cleaned all the deck, put everything back in order. Very efficiently done.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“Deck Tech worked for me this year. I'm really happy with them. I would say I was very happy with what they did, A+. For quality and for everything, it turned out very good. I would recommend everybody at this company.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“The gentleman who did the work was very careful, did some extras that I wasn't sure he could do, and was very conscientious and pleasant. It still looks good after a few months. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They were punctual, they were clean, they did a good job. I'd give them an A. I didn't get a call back the first time I made a call. I had to call them back a couple of times. I would recommend them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“The quality of the work was very good. The sales rep that presented the estimate did a really nice job, too. Overall, I would give them an A+ grade. They did a good job. I would definitely recommend them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They were excellent, on time. They said what they were going to do and cleaned up afterward. They were just doing deck maintenance—they stained a deck and a fence. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“Good service, good product, good price, and the job is done to my satisfaction. I'd give them an A. One day they were a little late or something—it's kind of hard to get a hold of them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They've always done exactly what they said they were going to do, when they were going to do it, weather pending, and I was happy with their work. I would grade them as an A.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“It was very positive. They were neat, clean, and did a good job. I would rate them as an A+. Deck Tech did a very good job. I would recommend them.”

Review by

“They did a good job. I'd give them an A grade. We had to wait. When they said they were going to come and do it, they kept putting us off.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“Nothing comes to mind, I thought their pricing was competitive and I thought their customer service was good. I would grade them an A.”

Review by

“So far. This is really not a good time, and I'm not a person who likes to answer these kinds of questions. So take me off your list.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They were very quick, efficient. Once they showed up, they were finished in two days. I would say they’re an A+.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They were fine. They're an A-. It was fine. They worked it out eventually—I just had to pester them.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“I needed some extra stain, and they gave me some extra stain. I would give them an A+ rating.”

Review by

“Deck Tech did quality work, good cleanup, and good follow-up. Overall, I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“I've used them for years. They're good. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by

“Everything went fine. They just stained. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“They've done stuff for us before, we're real familiar with them. I'd give them a B. There was no issue. Customer service was good.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“It was just a seamless operation. They were pretty proficient at getting the estimate and then getting the work performed in a timely fashion. I'd give them a B+. He always found stuff. I didn't have anything detrimental or major, just a couple of things.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“I think they did a beautiful job. I only had one issue with them which was just annoying but didn't affect what they did. I had given them my credit card for the down payment, and when they were done they automatically billed the balance. I would've preferred that they'd check with me before they did that, but it's not that it was the incorrect amount or I didn't owe it to them, so I got over my annoyance. But the actual work they did was absolutely great. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“I've used them several times in the past. It was no problem at all. I like the way the deck turns out, and they're very thorough. This time, I'd give them a B, only because there was a delay between the time they washed the deck and the time they coated it. There was a couple of weeks there. They did a good job. Really other than just calling up for an appointment, I've had nothing to do with customer service. I've never had a complaint. They were a little slow getting it done. They left a can of stain sitting under a bush of mine. Other than that, cleanliness was good. They know what they're doing.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“When they got on to doing the work, it was done very well and very efficient. It was done in two stages, and they scheduled each stage differently, and there probably should've been a day or two between the stages—there was over a month, and it affected the final output. The first stage they do is they clean everything and they let it sit for a month under a lot of trees with birds flying around. Well, guess what, after a month, how clean is it going to be? That's my only complaint; they need to work on their scheduling. I'd give them a C.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“I had a positive experience initially. We only had it done at the beginning of the season. Although, however, I think I need to call them back because I think it's wearing off quicker than it's supposed to. I'd give them a C-. I haven't contacted them again to fix this. It's hard to say if I'd recommend them—it'll be how they react to my calling them back to redo it.”

Review by
12/07/2017

“The job that they did was half-assed and terrible. The timeframe to complete the job took more than four months. They sprayed stain all over the side of my house and on my yard. I'd give them an D overall. I wouldn't be likely to recommend them.”

Review by
12/06/2017

“The first couple of times it was good. The last time it wasn't good because we just did the staining too late in the season. Overall, it was good if you do it at the right time of the year. I would give them an A-.”

Review by
12/06/2017

“The deck looks good. They did what they said they were going to do. It's just that it took them a long time, once I put my deposit down, to clean it and another couple of weeks to finish the job. So the whole thing actually took about two and a half to three months. I had had an injury and then I had people coming over, so the first time they wanted to come out and power wash the deck, I couldn't let them so that delayed it about a week and a half. And then after that, it took them about three weeks to actually come out and stain the deck. The deck is great, it's good, no doubt, and I thought I got a good price, it's just the time frame didn't work out as well as I had hoped for. I would suggest that people use them again, but I would warn them about the terms. I'd give them a B. The quality of work is fine.”

Review by
12/06/2017

“They took forever and were really rude about it. I would grade them a D.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“With DeckTech the weather always comes into play. Once they were able to schedule to have my deck redone, the crew came out and 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 then as well as when they put the stain on. So they're efficient and clean in that manner. They worked their tails off. I remember when they were doing it. They worked hard. They kept the work clean and made sure nothing got on the sides of my house. I would give them an A. I was very pleased.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“The people were professional. Everybody spoke English. Generally everybody was nice. My sales girl was Annette and she was very nice. 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.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“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. Once it was scheduled, everything went well. Everything seems great.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“They were fast, efficient, and friendly. We have a redwood deck on top of our garage they power washed and stained. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“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+.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“The guys who were working in the back were pretty thorough. I liked that. They stained a deck and sanded it down. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“They had a slow response time. I don't know if they over scheduled or under scheduled when we had it done. They did deck staining and cleaning. I'd give them a B overall.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“I really liked their response when I found an issue. They responded very quickly. They did pressure wash, sanding, and sealing. I'd give them a B overall. Their customer service was great. They were good about cleaning.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“It ended up different colors in different places because it was way too thick. They didn't roll it out very good and they were supposed to come back. As far as I know, he never came back and that was five months ago. He was going to resand it and redo the benches and he never did. I'd give them a B overall. I think they had their family with them. I'm not sure if they were all workers. It was really strange.”

Review by
02/01/2017

“They did some work for a church building that I help maintain. They did a good job. It's just that they weren't very clean and they left some stains on the ground. They tried to fix it, but they never did. The work that they did is good, but for the cleanup they didn't do as clean a job as I'd hoped. They did try to fix it, but it took them forever to get it fixed. They were cleaning a portico cleaning so it was an underside of a ceiling, which was wood. They cleaned it and they sealed it. I'd give them a B overall.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“It  was a good experience. I'd give them an A+. I'm very happy. It happened at the end of the summer; I want to see how it goes. I know they talk about definitely guaranteed for eighteen months. That's the only thing I'm holding up. So far, everything looks wonderful. They did the whole side process. I already have recommended them.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“We were very pleased. They earned an A. I think they were pretty meticulous. They covered a lot of our windows, although we did have to have our windows cleaned after they did our decks. For the most part, they covered most of the property, so the decking paint didn't get all over everything. I was pleased with that.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“I'd  give them an A rating. I've used them eight or ten times. They do really good work. I have two large decks and a gazebo. They’ve stained that all of that over the years for me, and they've always done a great job.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“I'd give them an A+ grade. They refinished my deck.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“I would give them an A+. They did a deck for me.”

Review by

“I'd give it an A grade. They stained my decks. I've used them twice.”

Review by

“It was A+ work.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“The colors were not what the samples were. I'd give it a B. They did deck staining. Once they came, they worked quickly and I like the job that they did.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“It was kind of positive. They took too long and they don't give me any answers. I'd give them a C overall. Their punctuality was okay, sort of. I asked them to do something and they didn't do it. They've been nice.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“It was a fairly good experience. Overall, I'd give them a C. It took a month and a half longer than they expected it to take. It was quickly done in one day with some obvious spots. It peeled already.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“It was an okay experience. I'd give it a C overall. I mostly had issues with the customer service, in terms of when we initially put in our request to have an estimate done. It took about four weeks to get that done and the sales rep who is assigned to us had us send him pictures rather than coming out and looking at it. We never actually met with anybody before the project began. They did sanding of a new deck.”

Review by
12/09/2016

“At the end it was good. I put in an order at the start of the summer and we weren't finished with the project until the end of fall. They came and midsummer to do the power wash. It was supposed to be just a few days after that they were supposed to finish. They didn't come back for a month and a half, two months, by the time they came back and finished the job. So in the meantime, I had all of my deck furniture in my living room. I live in a high rise, I don't have a yard to put it in. They didn't seem to care too much about that. Other than that, I'm happy with the job the way it's finished. I wasn't happy with the two month wait. Overall, I would give them a D. With my first experience five years ago, I was likely to recommend them.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“I'd give them an A+. I wasn't home when they did it, but they did a really nice job. Our deck was quite old and needed a lot of work. I hope their guarantee comes through, so if we start seeing peeling, we can call them. So far, it looks pretty good. They were very clean. They were spotless. Most people don't have decks, but if I had somebody that really needed one, I would recommend them. They're very pricey, they're not cheap to have it done, but they did do a good job.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“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.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“We had no problem with it. They  did a really nice job. They're an A+ company. They stripped our deck of the previous stain and put a new stain application on it.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“I'd give them a B+. They refinished a deck for us.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“I'd give them a C- overall. They had committed to getting to my house by a certain point. I understand that weather is a factor a little beyond their control. It was well beyond what any reasonable person would think would be an acceptable amount of time. They did power washing and a painting.”

Review by
11/29/2016

“I have a pending situation. I hired them back in the summer, and it unfortunately hasn't been resolved. I hired them to clean and stain my deck. Accidentally, the gentleman got stain on my siding of my home and we have yet to resolve it. It just hasn't been a good experience at all. I've been trying to work with the manager in operations. She was supposed to get back to me yesterday and I haven't heard back from them. I'd give them a D. I'm looking for a resolution.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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+.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“Our experience ended up being positive. I’d asked for a second quote because it seemed like the costs were too high at first. They sent another individual out, and she re-quoted us and had real good customer service, so ultimately it ended up being good. They basically did a little bit of sanding. I’d had the deck done three years ago by Deck Tech, and it just needed to be refinished with stain and the protective coating over the deck. It was kind of a maintenance job. The reason I chose them over a different company is because they were referred to me by a neighbor. I'd grade them an A.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“It was reasonably priced and they did what they said they were going to do which is what was needed. They did pressure washing and then staining. The reason I chose them over a different company is because I’ve used them before. I would recommend this company to others. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“They resealed three of my decks. They had the best price, did a very good job, and did it all in a timely manner with good customer service. I’ve never had any issues with them or had to call them back for anything they missed. I’m actually a second time customer. The work has held up, and it was perfect. I'd rate them A+.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“Everything was fine. They did what they said they would do. When she came out she gave a price. The price seemed fair. The work was OK. I’d use them again. They did pressure washing for me. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“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.”

Review by
11/20/2015

“We like Deck Tech. They did a good job. They were here on time. They did a good job. We’ve used them twice. They cleaned a wood deck and resealed it. I'd give them an A.”
