Rome responded quickly. I saw that he had many very positive reviews on Thumbtack. His estimate was very reasonable so I chose him. He was very friendly, he did extra work by helping me with an area of hardwood flooring that had water damage inside the house, as well as repairing, power washing, sanding and restaining the deck in a color we both agreed on. They shifted all the deck furniture to the lawn while working, and brought it all back up when they were done. I would hire him again in a New York minute!
