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 by Deck Doctor: 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.

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.

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.

My deck looks great!! Don worked around the spring rains and did an excellent job. He did some painting too. I would hire Don again.

Deck Doctor had to work around a rainy schedule and they did so responsibly so the job took a couple of extra days but stain was applied to dry surfaces. Good guys and good work.

Don was very polite and professional. He and his two helpers arrived right on time. They worked very hard and finished the work quickly. He did the work he said he would do and did it very well. My deck has never looked so good. I would use Don again and would recommend him.

Final Deck product is very nice however customer service and communication terrible. Donald seemed to be confused regarding what was needed on my deck each time he arrived at my house, 5 gallon bucket of paint dumped into flowers/mulch, poor communication. Just does not seem we had the same experience at all given the other positive remarks.

Donald stayed on top of the deck project from start to finish. Monitored the weather and picked just the right days to work. Very professional,beautiful result.

Don did an outstanding job and the price was better than I've ever paid others in the past - for much less quality work! He kept me aware of his schedule along the way and it truly looks like we have a new deck! The patio looks awesome as well! We will definitely use him from his point forward for all of our deck and patio needs!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
