    Deck looks amazing - way superior to any work done by other contractors.

    Carlton originally did my deck one year ago. Unfortunately, the stain I requested did not last and the deck looked terrible one year later. I contacted Carlton and he offered to clean, sand and put on one coat of a different stain for free. The job was done quickly and the deck looks great. I respect people who stand by their work.

    Our deck is 18 years old and needed some minor wood replacement and refinishing. We also needed some minor brick cleaning. We got bids from deck specialists and painting contractors. Carlton and Sam came to our home and quickly assessed our options for refurbishing the deck and cleaning our brick. They were very professional and knew what they were doing. They gave us reasonable options and pricing. We do a lot to maintain our house, are fairly meticulous and wanted quality work. We had them remove the old finish, replace some deck wood, sand the horizontal surfaces and stain. I have to say, I was impressed by their management of the project, quality of materials, staff and quality of work. They were also very helpful in helping us choose a stain color. We couldn’t have done better. My conclusion is: nice honest people, high-quality work, on time, reasonable price.

    Carlton was great. Our deck had not been washed or given a fresh coat of sealant for over 5 years. His crew was professional, he gave great ideas and recommendations on repairs and finishes. Our deck looks great. The color is natural and we think it's the best one in our row.

    Carlton and his fellow worker, Oscar, just finished cleaning, sanding, and refinishing my deck ALL BY HAND. They did not use spray but applied the coats by hand. It was labor intensive and a bit more expensive but it was worth every penny. They used Armstrong oil -based wood stain on the deck and waited for 2 dry days before applying the stain so that it would be done properly. I highly recommend them and will plan to use them again.

    No nonsense, just prompt responses and honest work. Time will tell, but we've used several deck maintenance "services" before and the results were not satisfactory. With Carlton, we seem to be off to a much better start, at a reasonable price.

    Carlton did a great job cleaning the siding and concrete walkway of my townhouse. He was prompt, thorough, and totally easy to work with. Next time I need my deck or siding cleaned, I'll be sure to call Carlton!

    These guys did a great job stripping and refinishing our back deck. It looks as good or better than when new. Price was reasonable. They came when they said they would; wokred neatly; cleaned up well. Really couldn't have asked for anything else

    Carlton is a true professional, willing to wait until there is sufficiently decent weather to complete the job, willing to put in the extra effort regarding special requests, and very responsive in terms of answering questions about the time course of events and keeping the client informed as to the service schedule. I recommend him highly; he is ethical and fair. And his work is of a very high quality.

    I used Carlton Cleans to stain my deck and was pleased with the work. They were prompt and professional, and did the work for a reasonable price.
