Your own backyard just may be your vacation destination this particular summer more than any other. Have you been out there yet? Do you like what you see? Joe Jacobs, owner of Chagrin Home Improvements will repair, clean, stain and seal your deck for this summer and beyond, making it the place you’ll be proud to call home for years to come.

“Deck maintenance can often be a forgotten chore, but it’s one of the most important to protect this investment in your home,” says Joe. “And the best news is that proper deck maintenance is a relatively small investment that will save you big costs down the road.”

A deteriorating deck greatly detracts from the value of your home, not to mention it can be dangerous. The trick is to not let it get to this point, by maintaining it now so you can enjoy it in the future.

“I write all of the estimates myself and the first thing we will do is come out and inspect your deck and make recommendations based on its condition,” says Joe. “Often people think their deck needs to be replaced and sometimes that’s the case, but often small repairs and a good clean, stain and seal will bring it right back to its former glory.”

And Joe says that between rinsing off your deck regularly to avoid mold and mildew buildup and a proper cleaning and staining every couple of years by Chagrin Home Improvements, you can get at least 20 years of enjoyment out of your deck.

“Neglect is enemy number one, and that’s where we come in,” says Joe. “With the temperature fluctuations we’ve had this winter and spring, and now the heat and summer sun, your deck has taken a beating. With proper attention from me and my crew, we’ll get it ready for the rest of summer and beyond.”

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. Taking Covid-19 precautions into consideration, we can do the job from start to finish without you ever leaving your home. 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.”

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 go above and beyond by masking the side of the house and all landscaping to protect your home and property while we do our job. We’re the best at what we do.”

Joe and his staff stress that deck maintenance doesn’t have to happen only in summer. Cleaning, staining and sealing can be done well into fall, as long as the temperatures cooperate.

“We’re scheduling restorations into fall for people who are already enjoying their deck and don’t want the interruption just yet,” says Joe. “That’s not a problem. Just give us a call now to get on the schedule, enjoy your outdoor living space this summer, and we’ll see you in the fall.”
