Check Out Our Glass Railing System for Decks!

Convert that beautiful view hidden by rails and uprights every few inches to a crystal clear wide open view.


We can install glass railings on any new construction or retrofit your existing railing to crystal clear.

Our glass railings are unique because we make your glass deck railing fastersafer, and stronger than the other guys.

Glass deck railing offers…

  • Unobstructed views
  • Durability and safety
  • Minimal maintenance

It can also increase the value of your home and make your home stand out from all those other homes around you with boring, old, view-obscuring wood or vinyl railing.

Glass is also resistant to decay, rot, and rust, and isn’t susceptible to damage from insects or pets.


Just a few reasons to choose us to install glass railing on your deck:

  • Crystal clear glass
  • Stronger than code requires
  • We only install Tempered safety glass
  • We install glass panels with added framing on the edges to protect the glass from corner strikes and increase its strength

Call us now to get an estimate on modifying your existing railing or to install glass railing on your new project!

Case Study: Composite Boardwalk at the S.C. Botanical Gardens

I wanted to point out a beautiful outdoor project I saw the other day at the South Carolina Botanical Gardens located at Clemson University.

They have a large outdoor section that takes you through various climate zones and topography found in the Palmetto State. It includes the piedmont, palm trees and shell rings, and even a carnivorous plant habitat.

Weaving throughout all of this is a beautiful composite lumber boardwalk.

Maybe instead of a sidewalk or more concrete, this might be a great idea for you. If you need something like this to connect areas at your home or traverse a muddy area in the backyard, give us a call.

Here’s a sample of one of our composite projects-

Our DIY Corner on the website is back online!

Just wanted to let everyone know that the DIY Corner on our website is back up.

Got a bunch of folks letting me know that links were broken. I fixed them, added some new stuff, and it’s back.

If you’re not familiar with the DIY Corner, it’s a place on our website where we recommend tools, materials, and plans for your own DIY projects on the outside of your home.

It might seem like we’re giving away business doing this, but, to be honest, we can’t always fit in smaller projects in time or it’s just not something we can do at a reasonable price for you.

A great example would be trying to build a she shed for your wife’s birthday and you waited until the day before. We just wouldn’t be able to help you with that…but we can sell you the materials.

The way I figure it, if you’re gonna do a DIY project, I’m just as happy selling you the materials for it.

Check it out, and if you need something you don’t see, feel free to give us a call.

Who likes credit card points?

A lot of our materials are purchased with company credit cards. It’s the easiest way for us to buy fuel or pay for lumber, because well, who has enough cash on hand to pay for lumber these days?

Our company has been a loyal customer of Chase credit cards for years. They’ve treated us well, and the bonus points from purchases converts easily to a credit on a statement.

Every so often, they send us a special offer to send out to friends and family, so I wanted to pass this one on to you. It’s for the Chase Ink card. Full disclosure, if you sign up, both of us get bonus points.

If you need a new card or your first one, there’s a link below for the special offer. I don’t know all the specs on it, because I think the offer is tied to your spending or income or something, maybe even your dog’s name.

Hint- If it’s tied to spending, you’re welcome to use your new card for a sunroom or deck from us.

Now, on the flipside, we pay off our credit cards every month so we don’t pay interest. It’s a tool, not a debt machine. If you’re not able to pay your card off every month, don’t get another one.

If you’re trapped in this cycle, there are ways to break free. Here’s a resource for the program we follow to stay debt free. It works for business and on the personal level.

Here’s to the beginning of another awesome summer!

Build Your Own Outdoor Projects Virtually

There’s a ton of project visualizers out there for the types of projects we do. I wanted to send out an updated list so you could take a try at it.

Most of these are really good and produce detailed plans and material lists. Feel free to build your dream project here and e-mail it over for us to look at and price out for you.

Note- There are a couple of these for projects that we don’t install, but I included them anyway just in case your dream project requires things outside our product line.

As you get into the process, feel free to get in touch with any questions.

Thanks, Dave

DIY Deck Building- We’ll Help!

We get quite a few customers come to us wanting help with do-it-yourself projects. Because of our 30 plus years in business, access to wholesale material pricing, and experience with code enforcement, they often ask for a range of services, including:

  • Help drawing up plans or getting engineering
  • Selling materials
  • Onsite help getting a job started or fixing one that they messed up

We do all of the above, and more, but it’s not our favorite way of working. The vast majority of the time, a DIY project of the type we do (sunrooms, decks, awnings) turns into a disaster that costs a lot more when we have to come out and fix it or bring it up to code. 

Seth Godin wrote a blog about DIY surgery. You can find his original post HERE. I modified his blog to apply to DIY construction-

Here’s a drill and a hammer from Lowe’s.

Here’s a video I saw on YouTube once.

Here are some instructions I read on Quora…

Okay, how hard can it be?

Actually, it might be very hard. Actually, expertise has value. Actually, just because someone said it on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true. Or useful.

Experts aren’t always right. But I’d rather live in a building built by an expert, fly in a plane designed by an expert and yes, have surgery done by an expert.

Even barbers get trained.

Doctors are Writing Prescriptions for Outdoor Time

Our goal as a business is to build projects that help you enjoy the outside parts of your property as much or more than the inside.

We spend way to much time inside, and it’s begun to affect us medically. It affects us so much so that doctors are now prescribing “outdoor time” as a treatment for some illnesses.

Check out this article from a newspaper in Oregon for more information on how physicians are responding to inside-itis. Click HERE for the article.

If we can do anything to help you get outside more, give us a call. We build projects that…

  • Provide shade for your patio
  • Keep bugs from ruining your outside time
  • Protect your home in a hurricane and still allow you to see outside
  • And more!
