Summer is upon us, and if you haven’t scheduled your deck cleaning and staining, you’re in luck. The level of service and the quality of the job they do at Chagrin Home Improvements has become common knowledge in the area—so much so that owner Joe Jacobs has added two new trucks to the fleet in order to serve more customers, just in time for outdoor summer fun.

“Word of mouth is a powerful thing, and the word is out about Chagrin Home Improvements and the quality of work we do for our customers,” Joe says. “We’ve been in business in this community for almost 10 years, and we’re now servicing repeat customers along with our new ones. These additional trucks make sure we get to everyone in a timely manner.”

With the addition of two new trucks to the fleet, Chagrin Home Improvements is giving more homeowners the opportunity to enjoy their outdoor deck space earlier in the season.

At Chagrin Home Improvements, whether they are doing interior painting work in the fall and winter months or deck work in spring and summer, the goal is always to deliver the highest quality of work.

“I started this business with the idea of serving the community where I grew up, utilizing the trades that I, my brothers and friends learned when we were working summers in high school and college,” Joe says. “We take great pride in what we do, and we do these jobs the right way because that’s the only way we know how.”

Joe took all that knowledge and experience and applied it to his own business.

“When I graduated college and came back to Northeast Ohio, I knew that deck servicing and interior painting were the areas I wanted to focus on,” Joe says. “Attending college in Florida showed me how precious the summer months are back here in Ohio in terms of outdoor living, and also how brutal the winter months can be on our decks.”

As part of their meticulous process, the Chagrin Home Improvements’ crew protects your home and landscaping from overspray.

Joe knew that the best way to serve his customers was to do the best cleaning and staining job possible as quickly as possible.

“Our goal is to get your job started as quickly as possible and done as efficiently as we can so you can get back out there and enjoy your deck as long as you can,” Joe says.

Once Joe and the crew get started, the process is simple. Just give him a call and he or his brother will come out to your home, take measurements, inspect the deck and get back to you with a written quote.

Simply give Chagrin Home Improvements owner Joe Jacobs a call and he or his brother will come out to your home, take measurements, inspect the deck and get back to you with a written quote. When work begins, the entire process takes just about two days.

“We’ve perfected this process over the years,” Joe says. “Give us two days and we’ll get the job done. And now with two additional trucks, we can start that job even sooner.”

Joe says the fact that Chagrin Home Improvements does not hire seasonal workers adds to the reliability of their process. Joe’s crew is made up of friends and family who are experts at what they do and know there’s a right way to do it.

Chagrin Home Improvements prepares your deck by making small repairs, then properly cleans and seals it to bring it back to a beautiful finish.

“We get in right away and get the job done, unlike other companies that may subcontract and, due to the unreliability of their workforce, drag a job out for weeks,” Joe says. “With us, you see the same crew every day until the job is finished.”

Deck jobs begin Day One with minor repairs and a thorough power wash. Things like replacing rotted wood pieces, and securing screws, nails and railings is followed by ridding the deck of dirt and mold buildup. You don’t want to seal over mold and dirt.

A professional deck repair, cleaning and staining by Chagrin Home Improvements is a relatively low financial investment for a surface that takes a lot of wear and tear.

“It’s a very efficient process,” says Joe. “My guys arrive on time and get to work. We also are sure to protect the other areas of your home by covering the adjacent siding and any landscaping that could be damaged. Our customers appreciate that attention to detail and our respect for your property. It’s just one more thing that sets Chagrin Home Improvements apart.”

Joe says with a job done by Chagrin Home Improvements, your deck restoration should hold up for two or three years with some minimal attention by you in terms of rinsing the deck of dirt and leaves occasionally to avoid mold buildup.

“It’s the Northeast Ohio weather that does a number on deck surfaces,” Joe says. “This is why I chose this particular service after spending time in Florida, where the temperature fluctuations, snow and ice are not an issue like they are here. Your deck is an extension of your home. It needs to be cared for just like the inside areas. Give us a call and we’ll get the job done.”

There’s still time to get on the schedule for your summer deck cleaning and staining. For more information call Joe Jacobs at 440-247-6700 or check the website
