379 Niagara Frontier Building Officials participate in Deck Construction class

“Simpson Strong-Tie was honored to be invited by the Niagara Frontier Building Officials to speak at their annual conference on January 23rd.  Doug Stercho (Simpson Strong-Tie Territory Manager), Chuck Frisicaro (Simpson Strong-Tie Sr. Dealer Rep for Western NY) and Jim Mailey (Simpson Strong-Tie Technical Training Manager and NADRA Structural Advisor & Educator) all had a major part in the success of this program.

The subject was on Deck Construction and the class was 6 hours long.  There were 379 people in attendance and the class was primarily made up of code officials from the Niagara Frontier region.  Although, there were numerous comments in the beginning about a class that is 6 hours in length on decks, those same people were amazed at how much was covered, how much there is to know about deck construction and how quickly the time seemed to pass.  At the end there were a lot of people requesting more information and asking if there are other classes on deck construction that they could attend.  The NADRA Deck Evaluation checklist, the best document currently available for assessing new and existing decks, was a big hit along with some of the other literature provided.”

Thank you, Deck for a Soldier® Participants in MN

 

 

 

Dear NADRA Members and Supporters: 

I am extremely pleased to let everyone know that the recent Deck for a Soldier® project for the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, went very smoothly and was completed in just a few days after obtaining the permit.  Several NADRA builders and suppliers all got together to create this beautiful curved deck on the home.

MVAC’s program director and administrators were extremely thankful and really could not believe that a program like ours exists.  They were overwhelmed when they thought about how many veterans will use this great outdoor space.

I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, everyone involved in this project for their time and or materials.  A special thank you goes out to Pat Noonan from Deck and Basement Co. for taking on the responsibilities of leading this project and Rick Wooton from Crossroads Remodeling for his contributions to the NADRA National Deck For A Soldier® committee.  Many gave so freely to this project that it was inspiring to all.   We certainly could not have gotten this project without the support of the best teams in the decking industry.  NADRA Rocks!!

Respectfully,

Bruce Verblaauw

Trex Unveils Top Trends in Outdoor Living for 2018

Trex Unveils Top Trends in Outdoor Living for 2018
www.trex.com
Desire for Personalization and Year-Round Enjoyment; Ushers In New Approaches to Design and Materials.

With the popularity of outdoor living expected to hit its highest peak yet this year*, homeowners across the country will be going all-in for the outdoors in 2018.

Once again, Trex Company, the world’s #1 brand of premium decking and railing, has gleaned insights from contractors, homeowners and industry experts to compile its annual outdoor living forecast.

“Among the biggest trends we are seeing is a shift away from seasonality as consumers adopt more of a year-round mindset regarding their outdoor spaces,” said Adam Zambanini, vice president of marketing for Trex Company.

“Outdoor living is no longer restricted to spring and summer nor reserved for certain parts of the country. Thanks to new high-performance materials and innovative design approaches, homeowners everywhere are transforming their outdoor spaces into multi-seasonal extensions of their homes.”

Following are some of the other top trends that will be dominating the outdoor living landscape in 2018:

Minimal Maintenance, Maximum Enjoyment

Just because people are spending more time outdoors doesn’t mean they’re willing to put in extra hours for care and maintenance. In fact, high-maintenance materials, such as wood, are seeing a decrease in demand as people are opting for lower-maintenance offerings that deliver better performance and sustainability.

Wood alternatives, particularly composite decking, are expected to experience above average annual gains in demand through 2020. Analysts predict this segment of the decking industry will grow at a faster rate than traditional wood** – and for good reason.

Unlike wood, high-performance composites, such as Trex, resist fading, staining, scratching and mold – and won’t rot, warp, crack or splinter.

No sanding, staining or painting is required, and food and drink spills wash off easily with just soap and water. Additionally, Trex decking is made from 95 percent recycled material, making it an environmentally friendly choice for eco-conscious consumers.

Comfy Cozy

Among the hottest design influences right now is “hygge” (pronounced hoo-gah) – the Scandinavian term for a feeling of coziness and comfort. This season, outdoor spaces will beckon homeowners and their guests to relax and rejuvenate with hygge-inspired accents, from plush cushions and throws to protective pergolas and cozy warming features.

Trex contractors also have reported an uptick in requests for its RainEscape® deck drainage system by clients looking to add multi-seasonal living space underneath an elevated deck.

Residential Goes Commercial

With the heightened focus on creating “outdoor rooms,” railing is finally getting the attention it deserves as homeowners recognize its role as not only the functional frame of their space but also one of the most visually prominent design elements.

While railing matched to the decking remains perennially popular, an increasing number of homeowners are taking advantage of the complementary decking and railing pairings afforded by new railing materials in modern, metal finishes, as well as sleek designs inspired by commercial architecture.

“Our contractors are seeing more homeowners being inspired by outdoor spaces they find in commercial settings, such as hotels and urban rooftops, and wanting to replicate those looks in their homes,” noted Zambanini.

A prime example of this commercial-to-residential trend is the growing popularity of horizontal railings such as rod rail – a sleek, sturdy look that’s ideal for customers who like the view-optimizing aspects of cable railing, but with a modern, industrial touch.

Hide & Chic

With the increased usage of outdoor living spaces comes higher demand for chic storage options and privacy.

“Nothing can dampen the view of a gorgeous sunset or the enjoyment of an elegant al fresco gathering quite like unsightly plastic storage, trash bins or scattered tools, lawn equipment and toys cluttering the scene,” Zambanini said. “Today’s homeowners are interested in both function and design, with solutions that add ambiance rather than detract from it.”

Adding beauty to any outdoor space, lattice panels are perfect for enhancing privacy and concealing storage areas or unsightly views.

With styles ranging from romantic to deco, lattice panels can easily be integrated into both new and existing outdoor living spaces and applied to structures such as arbors, trellises and gazebos, or used as decorative wainscoting or deck skirting. It’s a clever – and easy – design trick that adds both personal style and functionality to any outdoor living space.

Customized outdoor cabinetry and storage solutions also are available in designs that integrate seamlessly with popular decking finishes. These functional and fashionable components include built-in trash bins and ice chests, as well as sink cabinets and grill bases to hide plumbing and gas hook-ups for a completely finished look.

Fun & Games

Kids are not the only ones who enjoy playing outside! Outdoor play spaces for all ages are on the rise, including everything from swimming pools and embedded sandboxes to regulation cornhole courts, horseshoe pits and dedicated spaces for volleyball, badminton and bocce ball.

Beyond yard games, outdoor entertainment has reached a whole new level thanks to advancements in both equipment and equipment storage. Electronics manufacturers now offer televisions and entertainment systems specifically designed for the outdoors, taking into consideration differences in lighting and outdoor acoustics.

Meanwhile, new storage options include durable wall-mounted television and entertainment centers that beautifully protect pricey electronics from the elements, while concealing all of the unsightly – and potentially unsafe – cords and cables.

NADRA Member Spotlight: Custom Design Group, Barry Fate

Company Name: Custom Design Group
Member Name:  Barry Fate
Position:  Owner
Member Category:  Builder
Location: Kalamazoo, MI

What inspired you to join NADRA? I’ve been building decks for over 40 years. I wanted to become part of an organization that dedicated itself to MY profession.

When did you first get involved with this industry? On a full time exclusive basis- 35 years ago.

What was the first thing you ever built? I helped my father (who was a builder/remodeler) build a two level deck on a lake home when I was 14 (53 years ago).

We want to get to know you, please tell us a little about your business: I am a small, self-owned business professional. My daughter works with me every day (she is a fine carpenter) as well as my middle son (on a part-time basis). I have a strong background in outdoor living – pools & spas / specialty concrete and hardscapes, and I love the creativity of designing and then building what I have designed. Award-winner “Qualified Remodeler” magazine, and several other awards including “Best of Houzz.”
We are a TREX-Pro-Platinum contractor. BBB – A+ rated. We don’t have crews….we are the crew. Fully licensed & insured. Community oriented – contributed labor to several “Habitat for Humanity” homes through the Home Builders of Western Michigan and have built several ramps for veterans.

How do you define success? Success can be defined in several ways: 1) If you love what you do; 2) If you love who you work with: 3) If your customers become your friends and you satisfy them beyond their expectations; 4) If you have been able to weather the economic instability over the past 20 years; 5) If you are recognized by your peers in the industry that you work in.

What advice would you like to share with fellow members that you have learned in your career? Be open to listen to others – you can learn something new every day if you are just willing to listen. Also, be humble – don’t be the “know everything” person in the room…. because you don’t. Always be open to sharing ideas.

What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this? Cooking is my hobby. I love to cook (My wife is a great cook, but I do 90% of the cooking in our home). I would have a small specialty eatery/café offering specialty salads and sandwiches (made to order right in front of the customer) and unique soups.

A little more about Barry: My family is the most important aspect of my life! I used to be a “workaholic” back in the late 70’s / early 80’s. After my mother passed away and my children were growing, I decided that I needed to focus my energy on them and not on just chasing the money. I would rather have my wife and children see me as a role model that they can look up to than an “absentee” dad that was never home because of work and chasing the almighty dollar. At a time when most people my age are retired (I’m on Social Security), I am out in the field every day with my best friends (my daughter and my son) working side-by-side doing what I love.
My wife and I have been together for 46 years and enjoy spending time together in our first (and only) home. We love spending time outdoors (why not? I work there) enjoying our kids and grandchildren around the pool…..life couldn’t get any better!!!

Manufacturers share highlights from International Builders Show

NADRA Vice President, Heath Bowman attended the International Builders Show alongside President, Matt Breyer & several NADRA Committee members and NADRA ambassadors.

“It was great spending time with all of the NADRA members who participated in IBS.  Each booth we visited told stories and showed excitement about growth in sales, as well as, in new products coming.  I am personally excited to have accepted the VP position as it will allow me to be part of the industry in a more hands-on capacity.” Heath Bowman

NADRA Bronze level members, Screw Products, Inc.:

Three days can be a long time to stand on a trade show floor, but this year’s International Builders Show kept a steady pace and truly brought out the “International” for those interested in Screw Products, Inc. With growing interest from South America and even genuine interest with new friends in Africa!

From the moment we left the airport en route to our hotel, we knew this years show was going to be different. Different indeed. The IBS Marketing Team really stepped up their game this year with “Welcome” signage at the airport, as well as billboards along the way to the convention center! Well Done Team IBS!

Attendees were engaged and eager to learn. While we continued to have considerable interest in our overall Fastener line, our C-Deck Composite Deck Screws and DeckLok really caught the attention of many contractors. Several of which were proud members of the Great NADRA Team! Thanks for the continued support!

With hundreds of solid leads from contractors, dealers, distributors and fellow manufacturers, we are poised for a great 2018 at Screw Products, Inc. You won’t want to miss it! In fact, I hope they add an extra day to next year’s IBS! See you in Vegas!

AZEK® Building Products, NADRA Gold Level Members: 

AZEK Building Products had a great showing at IBS with a stunning new booth, showcasing more than a dozen new products.  AZEK® and TimberTech® each released three new colors to their premium decking lines.  AZEK’s Vintage Collection® launched Coastline™, English Walnut™ and Weathered Teak™ while TimberTech added Sequoia™, Espresso and Whitewash Cedar™ to its Legacy Collection.  TimberTech also announced an upgrade to its warranty, growing from a 25-year to a 30-year limited lifetime warranty.

AZEK also ran various demonstrations, highlighting a new and expanded line of Adhesives & Accessories for cellular PVC trim and moulding. The company also released various new deck fasteners, including additional color options for TOPLoc® by AZEK and a new hand-driven option of FUSIONLoc®.

Finally, AZEK® Trim & Moulding showcased 6 new surrounds for windows and doors, providing contractors even greater architectural options to present to homeowners.

Check out AZEK’s highlight reel on their YouTube channel!

 

CAMO Fasteners, a Bronze member of NADRA had a great show at IBS.  We interacted with a lot of fabulous deck builders and demoed our CAMO products.

The International Builders’ Show is THE trade show of the year — and a great way to start 2018 says NADRA members, Feeney, Inc.! This year was especially big for Feeney, as we unveiled our new brand evolution: new logo, new booth, all new packaging, and new literature! We got great feedback from contractors, architects, retailers, and other vendors. Folks were WOWed by our new look! We also unveiled two new products:

DesignRail® Kits: a complete modular aluminum railing system

CableRail Conceal Kits: a low-profile alternative to our original CableRail Kits

Optimism was high at the show, folks were positive about the year ahead in the building and remodeling industries. We noticed more VR games and displays in booths: you could tour a model home or a sustainable quarry in Brazil, and even smash up an old water heater with a lightsaber! We had a great time touring the show, talking to folks at Therrawood (who had our CableRail on display in their booth!), Camo Deck Fasteners, Home Advisor, Houzz, Use Natural Stone, Architectural Grille, and 84 Lumber. We even did some live streaming on Facebook at our booth on Day 3. Thank you to all who stopped by!

Heather Marchand, NADRA’s National Programs and Marketing Director, walked the show visiting members.

“I so enjoyed walking the show floor and having the chance to stop and speak to as many members as my feet would allow! The IBS show is gigantic! I needed more time! It was a blast getting to sit down with so many familiar faces- and new ones. The weather was beautiful for the outdoor exhibits. Bob Heidenreich and The Deck Store crew did an outstanding job! I loved the little touches – such as the custom picnic tables. The highlight of my trip was probably the warm, welcoming running hug I received from our members at AZEK. I love my job! I loved having the chance to see our members hard work pay off at this fast-paced, packed show. You all put a lot of time & resources into coordinating booth personnel, Facebook Live events, the displays, handouts, trinkets & novelty items & so much more. It showed! Job well done, friends! Now let’s get to work building, and get folks playing outside more… one deck at a time!”  Heather Marchand

The NADRA team met with members and prospective members at IBS. As you know, it’s a HUGE space to cover, and we missed many of you! We hope to see you throughout the year at various NADRA events and shows. Please stay in touch! If you’d like to send us photos and a brief recap from your experience at the International Builders Show, please send images, links and recap to Info@NADRA.org. We will keep this blog post updated with posts from our members that exhibited at the show! 

Take a look at members we saw along the way!

Trex Commercial Products Debuts Custom Railing Solutions at IBS

PRESS RELEASE

“From stadiums and large public works to universities and hospitals, no two commercial projects are alike – and their railing systems shouldn’t be either,” noted John Lewis, president and CEO of Trex Commercial Products. “Instead, Trex Commercial Products takes an individualized approach by designing, engineering and manufacturing custom railing solutions tailored to each specific project.”

Trex Commercial Products will showcase several of these solutions within the Trex Company booth (#W3440) at this year’s show, including:

  • Tensiline Cable Rail – A popular look at stadiums and other settings where sightlines are paramount, TCP’s Tensiline Cable Rail system is designed and constructed using stainless steel cables and a selection of stainless steel fittings and turnbuckles. The use of stainless steel cable allows for minimal sightline obstruction, while a variety of materials, finishes and colors are available to create the desired look for any project.
  • Gridguard™ Rail – An industrial look that offers strength and security, TCP’s Gridguard™ Perforated Rail and Mesh Rail systems are available in a variety of wire mesh panels and other infill materials, with flexible mounting methods that allow for use in nearly any location. A variety of materials, finishes, colors and infill attachment styles are available to meet specific facility requirements.
  • Line Rail – A sleek, contemporary style that offers the luxurious look of glass infill, the Line series is characterized by the clean, modern rod style standoff and glass mount. Builders can choose between top rail and handrail options, determine top-mount or fascia-mount surface attachment, and specify infill glass material, thickness and orientation for complete customization.
  • Track Rail – A popular interior look, Track Rail with glass infill provides a bright, airy atmosphere to any setting. The beauty lies in its subtlety, as the system is designed and constructed without the use of vertical balusters or posts between glass infill panels for high visibility throughout the space. The Track Rail system can be customized with multiple cladding options and glass types, including tempered, laminated, low iron, fritted, PVB interlayer, SGP interlayer, colored interlayer and patterned interlayer.
  • Dot Rail – The most distinguishable feature of the Dot Rail series is its unobtrusive circular glass mounts attached to TCP’s trapezoidal posts. Both handrail and top rail choices have three distinct rail standoff options creating more design flexibility – a rectangular base plate side mount for a clean mounting solution, a node-style side mount for a minimalistic installation look and an oval side mount base plate for a more linear, compact look.

“The Trex Commercial Products team has supplied railing for some of the largest projects in the country, and this wealth of experience provides us with the ability and expertise to achieve unrivaled customization and customer service,” said James E. Cline, president and CEO of Trex Company. “Through Trex Commercial Products, we aim to expand the relationship with builders and architects across the category. We’re thrilled to make our debut with such a strong line-up of core products that lay the foundation for future innovation within the commercial railing industry.”
