I contacted this company to get an estimate for power washing my deck and cleaning my gutters, for which I was quoted $250. The work was delayed due to weather and the fact that I had a painting job that took longer than expected. When my painter/handyman found out I was getting the deck power washed, he made a competitive offer to wash AND stain/seal my deck. I contacted this company to get a sense of what their cost for staining would be, but seems "JB" does not take well to competition, as this was our email exchange (egregious responses in bold): Me: Hi james, while I'm waiting to hear about when we can move forward with power washing, I was just wondering how much you would charge to stain/seal the deck after power washing? James: It is impossible to determine costs for sealing without knowing the actual dimentions of the deck and type of sealer you would like to use. We usually gather that information after the deck has been washed. Me: the deck is 22' x 12', and we just want a standard outdoor stain that matches what we have now. the guy that does the painting for our house ended up giving us a quote for washing and staining the deck, so i wanted to see what you would charge before making a decision. James: I am painting too, Do you need an estimate for that so I can beat his price? Me: well he is finishing up the painting now, so that's done. he quoted us $250 to wash the whole house and deck and clean the gutters, and $625 to stain the deck and the handrails that go around the whole deck. i've attached a photo of the deck, if that helps. James: Go ahead and let your handyman/painter/pressure washer finish the work for you. When he is done, send him to my house, I need the yard mowed, toilet unclogged and some landscaping work done too! Thanks! Needless to say, I did not go with this company. The immaturity and the immediate insecurity that resulted out of me simply trying to get a quote for services was very telling. This is not the mark of a professional, and is not someone I would ever hire. I have dealt with many vendors on Angie's List, many of whom were kind and courteous enough to come to my home for a free consultation, and gracious if I ended up going with a different company. I was quite shocked to encounter someone so rude and so threatened by a competing bid. I am just glad that I was able to discover his true colors before he ever did any work, so I never had to give him a dime.
