No Job Is Too Small

In the previous post I spoke about our desire to increase our portfolio of distinctive designer Decks. Of course, as deck builders we love when clients want the best. With that being said, however, we understand that price is important. If you have a deck in place and would simply like to change the decking boards (boards that actually sit on the frame and you walk on), we can provide this service. If you believe a simple make over of staining is all your deck needs, we will be happy to offer tips on how to stain, or we can complete the wood preservation project for you. Keep in mind, it is important to change rotten or faulty boards before staining!
