A few testimonials from our present and past seasons

October 4th, 2014:

" We truly enjoyed working with Jonathan. First off, he has a wonderful attitude which always gets our attention. Secondly, his knowledge of what he does and how meticulous he is with restoration is great. He explained everything to my husband clearly and my husband was in turn able to explain the process to me. We had 3 estimates and although Jonathan was not our lowest estimate, we felt that he would provide us with the best service. We are glad we chose him and we plan on keeping him for years to come. Our deck looks absolutely gorgeous considering Jonathan had to basically undo bad staining previously done for years prior to us purchasing our home a year ago. From a person who is very particular, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him."

Quote from Angies List Customer; Waldorf, MD


"Dear Jonathan and crew,

I am absolutely amazed at the way you transformed my screened-in porch and deck from what I perceived to be a big deterrent to selling my home, into what is now the best feature of the house. Both are now "drop dead gorgeous".

Your knowledge of wood, your attention to every detail, your expertise and craftmanship are amazing. Once I found your web site, I never even considered hiring anyone else. If anyone wants to come look at my deck, I would be more than happy to show them off.

I consider you, the Michelangelo of deck restoration!

With sincere appreciation"

" From the first meeting which was a very thorough consultation to the actual work, these guys were top notch. We live in a condo unit on the third floor. Not only did they have to power wash our deck, they had to rinse and clean the decks and patios below. Not an easy job. All they asked was that I alert my neighbors and they'd take care of the rest. Well, they certainly did! They arrived as promised and got right to work power washing the deck with a foliage and pet safe brightener. After the deck dried, they came back to sand and stain. We had elected to have the rough spots sanded and not go for the full sanding. Didn't matter, We Restore did a thorough sanding and didn't charge us more. They used a very high quality stain and used A LOT of it. The stain they used will allow us to get another 3-4 years out of our deck before we have to replace it. What was really remarkable about these folks is that they gave us the honest truth. We were open to replacing the deck thinking that it was at the end of its natural life. Not only did Jonathan educate us on a variety of stains, he actually told us to keep the existing decking and just treat it. Ultimately that saved us about $1,000. You can bet that when we do replace the deck, he will be our first call. These guys are TOP NOTCH! They went above and beyond and really wanted to give us the best service and product. Not just sell us the most expensive thing. "

"I chose We Restore Decks over several other bidders. They did work for my neighbor and came highly recommended. Jonathan, the owner, came promptly to see the deck and give me an estimate. He was enthusiastic about not just replacing worn parts of the deck but creating a more appealing outdoor space for us. They are a small company so I knew from the outset it would take two weeks for them to be free to start on my project. Because of constant heavy rain, they ran a week behind but kept me posted as to when they could start. Once they began, the project went quickly. The replacing of the deck floor and lattice work took a day and a half. There was another rain delay after the power washing before everything was dry enough to stain. They even came on the weekend to get the job done. I could not be more pleased with the results. Short cuts had been taken on our original deck but Jonathan corrected all of those to give the whole thing a more finished look and feel. "

"A note of thanks. From the prep work to the final application of the sealer, I could not be happier. You and your crew have delivered a quality job and made my deck the envy of the neighborhood. "

"Jonathan Shambarger and his crew were just what our 25 year old deck needed to make it look better than new. They removed the old deck floor, leaving only the basic structure under the deck and the vertical wood on the railing. All of the existing parts were finished with a solid stain, including the new top stair railing and overhead arbor. This contrasted with the penetrating oil stain used on the new deck flooring. The attention to detail and pride of workmanship of Jonathan and his crew is almost unheard of in this day and age. "

"After washing, every board looks new. Now that they have been stained and sealed, our 14 year-old deck and fence look brand new. I would recommend W.R.D. to anyone needing deck or fence work done. "
