We need our deck stained.

Our deck is only about 15 months old but we never had it stained after the build. It's time!

    Are you looking for advice on staining or a contractor to do this for you?

    if you are staining for the first time, you should give it a light sanding to open the pores of the wood, you will get a more durable finish.

    Hi Mary, it's definitely time to stain and preserve your deck. While my company does the Underdecking and Retractable Awnings for the deck, I do work closely with some quality deck stain guys. We are in Marietta, so let me know if you need a good referral. Have a great day. Jeff@ RainAway

    RainAway, are you able to do awnings around a fireplace poking out of the house?

    Hello Ana, thanks for the question. Yes, we can install our underdecking around fire places. Can you post a picture of the area you need covered? I'd be happy to take a look at it and point you in the right direction. Thx, Jeff@ RainAway PS- My partner and I just recently (as of last week) become the authorized dealer for Eclipse Retractable Awnings that look great and provide shade on the top of the deck. I don't think this is the type of awning that you are asking about, however...
