Custom Deck Design, Deck Refinishing & Repairs
Custom Deck Builder Serving Woodstock, Canton, and Nearby North Atlanta Area
CHL Services designs and builds customs decks, composite decks, plus deck finishing and repairs for communities north of Atlanta including Woodstock, Canton/Holly Springs, Acworth, Kennesaw, Marietta, Roswell, Dallas, and Waleska.
We are experts in custom decks and will work closely with you to design and build a deck that makes the most of your outdoor living space.
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.

Design Package for Custom 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
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.
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.
