Deck Safety is never over. It's a year-round commitment and while our safety month may be over, we've put together three tools that you can use right now to help you maximize your profits while keeping your past and future customers safe and awestruck with your design and construction.

  1. Residential Market Reports: maximize your marketing by identifying those in your marketplace with existing decks, patios, docks, etc. and reach out to aid in maintaining their outdoor spaces.
  2. Second Edition of Deck Construction: Keep your current and past customers' decks up to date with the latest codes for decks. Grab yourself a copy (with our discount applied, of course!) and be a hero in your neighborhood. Use our special promo code: NADRA2021IRC and purchase.
  3. 10-Point Consumer Safety Checklist: Deck safety is a year-round endeavor and your customers should be made aware of issues that can crop up pertaining to the maintenance of their decks. Share this checklist with your customers to help them maintain their decks.

Statistics Fun:
fun with statistics also means manipulating or converting data to generate interesting values. Staying with the North American deck market we can extrapolate from one of our main data files that in 2021 there were around 1.82 billion fixings used to secure deck boards to joists. The weight of the through-the-board screws (excluding the hidden fixing plastic blocks and screws) would be around 6,598 tons of metal, or 20,200 average Harley-Davidsons (without fuel and oil obviously).

Part 4: How Green is Green?
Now one of the prime marketing aspects in current times is to say that a product has green credentials. To prove this there are a myriad of standards, tests, clubs, associations, and brands etc that one can use for promotion purposes, but at what point can an industry say it is actually “green”.
