Our blog contains useful information pertaining to the deck industry. We make every effort to update it as frequently as possible. We also try to keep the topics on a local level following the Kansas City market trends. Weather, suppliers, and building products are some of the more common topics we discuss.
The deck industry is constantly evolving so some of our research will reach out across the county, and even the world. That’s because we try to stay in tune with the latest building trends, codes, and products. However, please keep in mind that different regions may vary greatly in construction methods, IRC code adaptation, and types of building products being used.
If you would like to contribute any relative comments, questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to register on the right and submit your post for our webmaster to review. We check comments on a regular basis and will always respond to pertinent information and inquiries.
