Acorn Deck Accessories, Inc. was incorporated in August of 2008. This new company was formed to focus on the business of providing the best under-deck ceiling product available for homeowners that have a patio or other usable area beneath an existing or new deck. Our staff has been designing and installing Sealing Ceiling™ under-deck protection systems since 2001.
The Original Design
The original Sealing Ceiling™ design came about when the designer, a retired fluids engineer, built a new deck over his walkout basement patio and wanted to find a way to keep the area under the deck dry and free of the rain and debris that fell through the deck boards above the patio.
Research and Development
Researching the systems that were available, the engineer found that most of them had serious fluid design and/or mechanical strength issues and in addition, were just plain unattractive.
He wanted a ceiling that was flat, clean and handled the water, leaves and other debris that fell through the deck boards and was easy to maintain.
He designed eight different systems and tested them over 18 months on his own deck and a deck test area he assembled. Each design was tested for the handling of water, ice, leaves, pine needles, dirt, seeds, and other debris common to Michigan backyards as well as extreme temperature changes and high winds. The result of that effort is the exclusive vinyl under-deck protection system called Sealing Ceiling™ — patent in process.
Friends and Neighbors: The First Customers
The neat looking and fully functional final design became an object of interest and soon a few more ceilings were designed and installed for neighbors and friends.
Commercial Installation: Green Oak Gutter, Inc.
In June of 2008, a local Company, Green Oak Gutter, Inc. agreed to take the design commercial and several of their technicians were trained to install them. In the next three months, 11 ceilings were installed.
Commercial Development: Acorn Deck Accessories, Inc.
Acorn Deck Accessories, Inc. was formed to handle the new product as a stand alone entity and allow Green Oak to return to its core business of installing gutters. Acorn Deck Accessories is now a fully licensed and insured company based in Brighton, Michigan. Engineering and design is still handled by the same group and several new technicians have been trained and certified to install the growing demand for Sealing Ceilings™.
A small support staff handles the business end of the venture. The commercial side of the best looking and most functional under-deck ceiling system was launched.
Acorn Deck Accessories' core business is the under-deck Sealing Ceiling™. It is a specialty company providing expert advice on under-deck protection systems and other unique deck accessories.
