I am a property manager and thus have a lot of experience with painters on owner's remodels, etc. Thus, when I went to hire a painter for my 4,000 square foot home I had very low expectations. I am used to contractors and repair people being on "island time," and not showing up when they say they will or completing the job quickly. First Class Painting completely surprised me! They FAR exceeded my expectations (even if I would have had normal or good expectations they would have exceeded them). They constantly communicated with me and then did what they said they were going to do. They were punctual and even fit me in to accommodate my tight schedule and finished quickly for me. They also did a fantastic job on the paint. Those would be my normal expectations for any painter though: do what you say you're going to do and do a good job. So here's how they far exceeded that! One day we came home from being at church and the painters had waited for us to get home so they could get some lunch but not leave the house unlocked (I hadn't even thought to give them a key or something). The owner of the company, Jordan, met us and told us they were heading out for a quick lunch but that they had set the table and cleaned up things a bit so we could have a nice Sunday lunch at home too. I laughed and was about to say, "Did you do my laundry too?" when I looked into my kitchen and saw that he actually had straightened my kitchen and set the table! I was shocked! I have five kids and we are right in the middle of a move, things have been in complete disarray but he had taken the time to put my dirty dishes in the sink and set the table and swept my floors. He said, "I would have mopped but I couldn't find one." Who does that? As a side note, Jordan actually has some really good design sense as well, I had had some centerpiece things out earlier for some staging and the way he staged the table was a way I hadn't thought of and I actually kept it that way afterwards because I liked it so much. One more time he totally went above and beyond (though I can think of five more but don't want this to be the longest post ever) was when Jordan's guys were finishing things up. Instead of sitting down and taking a rest from painting all day, Jordan came and found me. I was setting up the kids furniture and a brand new kids table I had bought was chipped from our move. He had some white paint with him and I asked him if he'd just dab a bit on the part that had been chunked out. He painted it and then said, "Let me just paint the whole thing so it all matches." Afterwards he said, "My guys aren't done and I have this paint, what else could I touch up?" Mind you, this was not part of the bid, this was touching up places in the house that we hadn't paid for them to paint. Last of all, they have said several times they would come back and touch up anything. After they were totally done they scheduled a time to come back just to touch up the areas that needed another coat. I just realized there was a patch area that we (the painters and myself) had forgotten needed one more coat when I was taking them through the little things that needed a touch up. I texted Jordan and he immediately called me back and apologized and set up a time to come back again. They live about 30-40 minutes away from me so this is not a quick thing but they obviously care about providing the best job possible! Okay, one more thing (really this is the last thing and I realized this became the longest post ever), there is a part on one of my walls that had needed repair and it isn't quite perfect yet despite them spending several hours on it. My husband said, "No big deal, we'll put a picture there." However, Jordan said, "Well some day you'll take down that picture and I want it to be as perfect as I can make it." So he is coming back to work on that again too. It totally pays to have an OCD painter with amazing design sense. In case you can't tell from my very long review, I would hire Jordan and his crew to do anything for me (I wish they did plumbing, electrical, maintenance work, etc. I'd hire them for all of it). He will be my painter from now on and I will recommend him to all my new owners.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Does a deck increase home value?

A back deck may (or may not) increase your home’s value or attract potential buyers if you’re looking to sell. According to the Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features, a new wood deck with an estimated construction cost of $10,000 recovered $8,000 for the overall recovery of 80%. Still, 9% of realtors suggested that home sellers should add a new wood deck before putting their home on the market, and 4% said this project has helped closed deals. 

The impact of adding a new deck will likely depend on its material (wood, composite, etc.) and where you live. For example, if you live in an area where people rarely spend time outside because of the weather, it’s reasonable to predict that prospective home buyers might not rate a deck highly on their list of must-haves when looking for a new home.  

When in doubt, consult with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out if adding a new deck to your home is the right move to increase your home’s value. If it is, contact the best deck contractors near you to get free estimates and start planning your project.  

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a consultation or appointment with a general contractor during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by performing an online search for local professionals near you.

Message the contractor, and see if they are willing to set up a video consultation call instead of an in-person site visit. With video chat, the contractor may be able to assess the scale of the project, give you better information on what needs to be done and perhaps provide an estimate. Be sure to discuss virtual payments, as well as general strategies for staying safe.

What should I ask a deck contractor?

One of the first questions you should ask is whether the contractor has the proper license or insurance. To be a licensed contractor in many states, they must have the experience and knowledge to pass the requirements from your state’s licensing board. 

You should also inquire if they have done work related to your specific project. Just because they’re a contractor, that doesn’t mean they’ve built a deck or an addition like yours. Ask for photographs of decks they've built in the past, and go online to read reviews from past clients.

You also need to ask for a free estimate from several contractors so you know how much the project will cost you and so you can pay the best price.

How much does it cost to build a deck?

The cost of building a new deck or porch is $1,500. However, this price can vary depending on a few different factors. The square footage of the space, the type of materials to be used, the intricacy of the project and your specific region can cause the price to fluctuate. To find out how much your new deck will cost, get free estimates from the best deck contractors near you.

For more information, read “How much does it cost to build a deck or porch?

How can I find out if a general contractor is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a general contractor is considered essential in your area during the current coronavirus pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website, which will have information on essential services.

Find information on national recommendations by visiting CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Is it hard to build a deck yourself?

If you don’t have the skills, experience and qualifications, building a deck may be difficult for you to do on your own.

Structural integrity is key when constructing anything, but especially something you plan to have your family and friends use regularly. The safety of the structure takes careful planning and experience.

Professional contractors have the knowledge to make a safe, beautiful deck for you. They also know the proper permits and insurance required to legally build a new deck or remodel a porch in your city.

When in doubt, contact the best deck contractors near you and start getting free estimates today.

Can I use digital payments to pay for general contractor services?

Currently, many general contractors are using common digital payment services like PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash, Zelle, Google Pay and more. And more will likely adopt these and similar platforms as coronavirus continues to force companies to take on digital capabilities.

Contact general contractors beforehand to discuss whether they accept digital payments, and take all necessary measures to meet social distancing recommendations. You can also compare general contractors side-by-side online to see which ones accept digital payments.

Do general contractors offer remote or virtual services?

General contractors perform manual work and typically need to be present to complete their projects. However, if you come across a profile that states the contractor is offering remote services, ask what those services include. You can also ask if they can perform a consultation via video call and if they can do the job while following guidelines from the CDC and local agencies.

Reviews for Jacksonville Beach decking professionals

we desperately needed a better deck, my wife and i drew up the plans and John was right on the same page very professional as well as a great contractor would hire him again

My wife and I were looking to price a new deck after there was really no fixing or repairing the one we had damaged by Hurricane Matthew. Ron was my third estimate I had gotten from thumbtack and I had a fourth coming the following day. I made the easy decision to hire Ron on the spot because his passion and creativity is 2nd to none. Throughout the process he made sure my wife and I were comfortable every step of the way. We're now left with a bigger and better deck that was built with the creativity and craftsmanship of someone who truly cares about their work. The little and big details he incorporated into our design made our deck one of a kind. I could go on and on, but just trust me in saying that you will not regret hiring Garden Home Spaces for your next project! -Happy Jax Beach Couple
