Recommendations for repairing/replacing wooden steps on porch?

For some years now we've been watching water slooowly seep under the paint to the wood on our porch, and now the wood's warped and exposed, so, sigh, time to figure out what to do next before any of us stick our foot through it...Anyone had success in replacing/repairing steps that they loved working with and thought did a great job? Cheers!

Hi there - we replaced our cracked concrete steps and porch with Green Diaz Construction (ask for Julio). His estimate was fair and he got the job done in the time he said he would. Project went a little over budget but that was due to unforeseen rot that we had in another part of the porch that needed replacing (our house is 100+ years old so not super surprising). One thing I appreciated is that he was always available to chat - never left me hanging. They did a good job in the end and we're very happy with how the porch turned out (happy to send pics too if you want).

I highly recommend Chepe Siliezar (415) 515-4974 for repairing/replacing your porch wooden steps. I referred him to a friend for just such a project and they are very happy with the outcome (and have since hired him for many other projects). For me, he has repaired a fence, built a new fence (you are welcome to come see them), and remodeled a kitchen (tiling, painting, new appliances, etc). Wonderful to work with, hard worker and reasonably priced.
