As life slowly returns to normal here in Northeast Ohio, chances are we’ll still be sticking close to home this summer. And there’s still time to get on Chagrin Home Improvements’ schedule to have your deck cleaned, stained, sealed and ready for your family to enjoy.

“We can do the job for you from start to finish without you ever leaving your home,” says Joe Jacobs, owner of Chagrin Home Improvements. “From your first phone call or email requesting an estimate to the minute we finish the job, you never need to directly encounter any of our staff.”

With the temperature fluctuations we’ve had this winter and spring, your deck has taken a beating. But with proper maintenance, you can enjoy it for years and it’s never too early to start. The sooner you protect your investment, the longer it will last.

“The Northeast Ohio temperature swings have been even crazier than usual, but those temperatures will go up and stay there,” says Joe. “When they do, you’ll want your deck to be ready—and no one does the job like me and my crew. We assess your deck’s condition, make any necessary repairs and clean and prepare the deck for staining and sealing.”

Joe says people often think their deck is beyond repair and needs to be replaced, but only about five percent of the time is that necessary. He and his crew can almost always repair it.

A true local business, all Chagrin Home Improvements employees grew up here and continue to live in the Chagrin Falls area.

“We take great pride in our community,” says Joe. “My employees are some of my lifelong friends and we are all extremely passionate about what we do.”

With proper maintenance from Chagrin Home Improvements, you can enjoy your deck for years to come—and the sooner you start to maintain it the longer it will last.

Chagrin Home Improvements is not a franchise like some other deck service companies. It is a home-grown business that Joe started after graduating from college in south Florida in 2007. Wanting to start his own business and seeing a need in Northeast Ohio for deck restoration, Joe decided that’s where he wanted to focus.

“I knew that in order to be successful I had to make sure my employees were exceptional,” says Joe. “In a service business like this, where customers are trusting us with their homes and property, I need to trust my employees. This is why I don’t use subcontractors or hire temporary workers. Some companies do deck work in addition to sealcoating, gutters, or windows. When you hire us to do the job, you’re getting true specialists who do this work with expertise and efficiency.”

Joe and his crew use the highest quality products and equipment when servicing your deck, and take extra steps to protect your property while they’re on the job.

“Other companies use lower quality products to save money and it shows in the results,” says Joe. “We take extra steps to mask the side of the house and protect your surrounding landscaping to protect your home and property while we do our job. We go above and beyond the ordinary to be the best at what we do.”

Joe’s dedication to excellence is reflected in your finished product.

“When you’ve built a company from nothing, the pride shows in every aspect of what we do here,” says Joe. “Give us a call and get on the schedule.”
