"Jim is a consummate professional. From his first visit, we were impressed with his attention to detail and the time he spent explaining
our options for deck refinishing. Our project was completed (deck refinishing and house power wash) on time and on budget. The
professionalism and knowledge of equipment, materials, and techniques was clearly evident in the quality of the work performed. We
highly recommend Deck De-Fence."

"We just had our 18 year old deck refinished by Deck De-Fence. We are so pleased with the result and impressed with the meticulous
work performed. Extra work was performed on our stairs and railings at no additional charge. We received a free estimate and all our
questions were answered as well as recommendations on the type of stain and color explaining the pros and cons of our choices. We
highly recommend Jim's company as he is truly an exceptional expert and extremely knowledgeable."

"It is rare that I'll put my neck out for a recommendation like this, but I cannot tell you how impressed I was with Jim Ethridge
who owns Deck De-Fence. I came across them randomly after a Google search for power washing. Jim came exactly on time to do an estimate
for me and clearly communicated everything and how much it would cost. They came out and worked their butts off cleaning my gutters
and power washing my patio and gave me a weekend of my life back.
I was contacted in the late fall and scheduled for another
gutter cleaning. And again, a great job. I will have Deck De-Fence out again before Memorial Day to do the patio again.
worth mentioning, was how our privacy was respected. We were home the day our work was completed and you could tell a point was made
not to look in our windows.
If you are going to have something power washed, or need a good gutter guy, I can't endorse Deck
"First I want to thank you for such a great job! The deck refinishing is fantastic. It turned the old deck into a new deck with style
and attitude. We are truly thankful that Deck De-Fence did the job and were so fastidious in your work. We will certainly brag
about you guys and your work!"

"In some areas my deck had too many prior coats of deck stain. In other areas it needed to be restained. Although
it was not yet peeling, it did not make sense to add another coat of stain. I tried stripping it myself but after two applications
and power washing there was still considerable stain to be removed.
Deck De-Fence applied a PH balancer to neutralize
the effect of the stripper I used. They then hand-sanded with palm sanders and when done the deck looked almost new. They
then hand-brushed in the stain.
The work was done by Jim, the owner, and one co-worker. They were extremely professional, showed
up on time, worked diligently throughout the day, and paid attention to detail. Jim also answered all my questions and explained
in detail what he was going to do and why.
I would absolutely use Deck De-Fence again."

"Just wanted to say thanks for the fabulous work on my deck!! I absolutely love it! I had no idea it could look so good again after years of abuse as a weekend warrior. Far beyond my expectations. I love it! I will certainly be calling you for future upkeep! I have given your number to a few friends who are looking for similar work. Thanks again - just can't tell you how happy I am with your work!! Have a great summer!"

"I had my siding cleaned by Deck De-Fence. I really liked the "No pressure" options that were given on the website for getting an estimate and making an appointment. My phone call was returned promptly. They addressed my concerns and gave me future recommendations. My house and siding looks great. They did a wonderful job cleaning the tough spots and they cleaned up the patio and driveway areas around the house before they finished. I will be hiring them to do my gutter cleaning annually."
