We wanted to have our house stained and our deck and front porch cleaned and stained. Got 4 bids,3 of which we found on Angie's list. Jerry seemed very knowledgeable and fairly priced, so we went with him. It was a wet spring so we had to wait a bit, but eventually got the job done. Overall, his crew did an okay job on the house part of it. This is why I'm leaving the bad review. We have a 50' deck and a 20' front porch. Both of which, last summer I installed about 100' feet of cable railing, consisting of about 45 black painted stainless steel posts along with the cable that is strung through to make the railing. Along the top of that is 2x6 lumber that was to be stained, along with the surface of the decks. Not only did anyone not think about masking off the cable and posts, but the individual they had do the staining on this, got stain all over not only all the post, but the cables as well. When I saw this and brought it to the attention of the foreperson, nobody seemed to care enough to not only start to clean it off, but even care that much. It was only after texts, and phone calls to Jerry, did anyone try to do anything. Well, they needed an industrial type of aerosol paint remover to clean it. The areas where they could get it off, the removal product damaged the finish, and they still didn't even get it all off. At the end of the day, the only important thing for Jerry, was to get his check. I couldn't inspect the deck that night (because the surface was wet) so I didn't give his crew the rest of the money. So Jerry made sure to have his person stop by at 8:00am the next morning to make sure he got his money. After I slept on this for a few days, I called Jerry with my concerns about the rail. He was supposed to stop by that Friday, as he was going to be in the area, but he was a no show. Haven't heard from him since. If you hire him, I'd advise you sit and watch the type of job his people are doing. I assumed this was a professional outfit, and learned my lesson.
