After meeting with Brendan at my house and talking with his referrals, everything looked good, so I hired him to do my project.
They stained the deck and painted the windows and garage doors which took around 3 days. I had noticed some areas on the deck, windows and garage doors that where missing stain and paint.
Both Brendan and his partner came on a Saturday to do the touch-ups on the deck and windows. After they finished I paid them in full.
There are still spots on the windows and garage doors that were not painted properly.
The following week I noticed white ring stain marks on the deck. I contacted Brendan and he told me that he would take care of it.
He showed up with a pail and a mop with white vinegar and water and said it would neutralize it. It did not work. I contacted him again and he told me that it was out of his control. He told me to use a deck wash to see if it would work. I tried it, and It did not work. He then told me a solution around this is to apply a stain blocking oil primer to the entire deck - and restain with a solid oil. These costs are something I would have to cover.
I haven't spoken to him since. I would like to add that my deck is 1 year old and never been stained.
