Our standard and custom deck design packages include pressure treated wood for the deck structure. Composite decks use different building materials and are popular alternatives to traditional wood decks. If you plan to live in your house more than 5 years, you may want to consider composite decking such as a Trex deck, which is longer lasting and more durable than pressure treated wood.

Our deck building teams use high quality materials for each job and take great pride in our work, from small repairs to total renovations, because we know that every job matters.

Standard & Custom Deck Design Packages

We offer standard and custom deck design packages which include pressure treated wood for the deck structure. This is wood that has undergone a special process to make it more durable and less susceptible to decay, insect infestation, mold, and water damage. Pressure treated wood may last up to 10 years or longer if regularly sealed and properly maintained.

You may also want to consider pressure treated wood that is fire retardant. This type of wood resists being ignited and significantly slows the spread of fire.

Composite Decks

CHL Services designs and builds custom decks using composite materials including Trex Decks, FiberON, Moisture Shield, TimberTech and AZEK. These are all popular alternatives to traditional pressure treated wood decks, and they are longer lasting and more durable.

As a Trex Certified Pro, we are vetted and trained to install Trex decks.

The average cost of composite decking has become more cost effective over the years, so if you plan to live in your house more than 10 years, you should consider composite decking. If you factor in the cost to refinish a pressure treated wood deck two times, you actually save money over time with composite decking.

Composite Deck Advantages

  • Durable and highly resistent to rot, mold, insect infestation, splintering, staining, and fading from the elements.
  • Virtually maintenance free since they are easy to clean and never require painting or staining.
  • More cost effective than pressure treated wood decks since they don’t need to be maintained via periodic staining.

Deck Refinishing

Wood decks become worn and weathered looking over time due to exposure to the elements, so it is important to maintain your deck to keep it looking good. Deck refinishing, also referred to as staining, should be done every two to four years, depending on your deck’s exposure to the sun. The horizontal boards of a deck get more exposure to the sun than the vertical boards and will show wear first.

Before we refinish your deck, we will thoroughly pressure wash it to deep clean it and remove all the debris, mold, and algea.  Once your deck is completely dry, the stain is sprayed or rolled on.

We use Behr Stain & Sealer as well as Sherwin Williams Superdeck Stain for deck refinishing. These sealers come in a wide variety of colors and provide increased protection from the elements and the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Deck Repairs

Simple fixes and repairs to a deck can bring an older deck back to life, so we encourage you to talk with us about our deck repair services.

Before we do any repairs on your deck, we must ensure it is built to code according to the Georgia deck building code requirements. If it isn’t build to code, we will make the necessary repairs to ensure it is compliant. We require this since we assume liability for the deck, and a deck that is not code-compliant can be a safety hazard.

Common Deck Repairs

  • Replacing deck boards and handrail replacement are easy repairs that can be done without spending a lot of money.
  • Items such as replacing flashing or rotten wood are more involved, but we can do that too.
  • Rotted support joists and support posts may require temporary supports and removal of additional wood to get to the rotted wood. 

Chris and CHL Services were absolutely fantastic to do business with. From the first meeting to the completion of our project we couldn’t have been happier! Chris was a terrific communicator and kept us updated on the progress of our deck. The crew was always on time and did a great job of cleaning up after. We would recommend CHL for any home improvement projects and will definitely be using them again in the future.

CHL rebuilt the deck on the back of our house. It is a second story deck with stairs. Not only is the quality incredible, the attention to detail was second to none! They were very professional, courteous and on time. I would not only recommend CHL but I will use them again in the future.

I don’t want cheap or inexpensive – I want value! I feel that CHL provides value. I appreciate efficiency and CHL hits the mark in this department as well. We needed to replace an older, large deck (~384sqft). Chris had a quote to me within a day or two. Once everything on my ends was complete it only took them a day to rebuild; very impressive. I’ve had several people come see it and they all compliment how nice it looks including my dad who is general contractor. Couldn’t be happier with CHL Services! Thanks Chris and team.
