Initially we were happy with his work, as Mike built us a decent deck.The agreement was to demolish and remove the existing deck, install a new one and stain it. Mike convinced us that he would do the demolition and installation and come back next spring to pressure wash and stain, which we were ok with and paid in full when the installation was complete.
Come spring, I tried calling him and sent several emails to schedule pressure wash and stain. I tried all means to get in touch with him, got read receipt confirmations for my messages and he just refused to respond. I had recommended his name to many of my friends and neighbors, which I regret. Though he came across as a hardworking and skilled guy, he turned out to be a dishonest and unprofessional business man. I would NOT recommend anyone do any kind of business with him.
