    2.0 David H. Arlington Heights, IL

    Vendor responded quickly and gave a fair estimate. The job was completed in the time he indicated. However, the color of the stain was not as preferred. Also, the contractor likes to deal in cash/check directly to him rather than to a company name; I do not like doing that.

    Great service. Did an exceptional job on our deck! I would highly recommend them.

    5.0 Dan U. Palatine, IL

    Deck Doctor was the first person to give me an estimate on the work needed on my deck and the total cost. He was honest about the condition of my deck (it was actually in better shape than I thought and none of the wood needed replacing .... by the way, this is what the other deck contractors told me as well). When I hired him, he was able to accommodate my schedule and the work was done over the course of two days finishing sooner than I anticipated. Completed power washing and staining looks great! Highly recommended for your deck needs!

    5.0 William norman B. Schaumburg, IL

    Excellent, efficient work painting our deck.

    5.0 Elizabeth M. Streamwood, IL

    Cleaned and sealed a new deck. Looks good. He was on time and started quickly.

    5.0 Ed E. Arlington Heights, IL

    Excellent, they said what they did and did what they said. Again, excellent job!!!

    Dr. Spencer - Deck Doctor re-stained my deck and stained my fence in July 2019 and gave us a 3 year warranty. The stain on deck and horizontal boards on fence faded badly and stain peeled on deck rails. My wife and I called and spoke with him multiple times and he said hed come out and fix the issues as per his 3 year warranty. He never came. Buyer beware!

    Response from Company:

    This is not true I did go back there. They had a pool and the chlorine fade a few boards, I told them I would redo their floor in a couple of weeks, but they wanted it done right now. I got into an argument with the customer I never went back. They were very mean and rude to me.

    5.0 Sheri P. Mount Prospect, IL

    Deck Doctor power washed and treated our 5 foot pine fence. He said he’d make it look like new and he delivered! Could not be happier with the way it looks.

    4.0 Triet N. Lake Forest, Il, IL

    Donald, the Deck Doctor, cleaned and re-stained our deck and re-sealed our brick patio with polymeric sand. He was reasonably responsive and gave us a very competitive quote. So far, we're very happy with the end results and would highly recommend Deck Doctor. Note that Donald is basically a one man crew and he hires addictional help as needed.
