Need Advice?

Have a question on waterproofing a deck? Contractor problems or questions?

Don’t be fast talked by smooth talking salesmen, get the right advice for a low $50.00 fee, and turn the tables on the salesperson with my questions to ask every contractor, free with purchase. Whatever you may wonder about waterproof decks, I can probably help you.

How to Get Advice

Email me with your questions, and pay via Venmo. See below for our Venmo info. I will respond generally within 24 hours time; sometimes I’m traveling or on a job performing inspections and just can’t get right back to you. Send me digital pictures if possible, include as much info as you can!

The Price of Advice

I enjoy receiving your email’s, hearing the problems and issues and helping you out. I want to respond to everybody who emails in a question, however, it often takes several emails back and forth for further specific information and then an answer may take me 15-30 minutes to formulate and write up. In order to keep providing this service, I need to charge a fee for my time and expertise. I think $50.00 is reasonable (and I hope you do too) for my time and effort.

Get the Deck Experts advice* by email for a low $50.00 fee.
If I can’t help you, I’ll refund your money.

By making payment to the Deck Expert, you agree that our fee is earned in full upon receipt of an answer back to you.
