Dear NADRA Believer,

We, like you, believe with all our hearts that through the organization we together have found and with the support of many wonderful people like yourselves; that NADRA is and will continue to bring about positive changes while setting the bar high for this and other industries to follow.

Shortly, we will take a big step forward in showing the current governing bodies in our industry that NADRA is here to help the decking industry grow. We will do this while working to provide the awareness of the best products and services available in the deck, dock and railing industry.

We are drilling down into the local, state and even federal jurisdictions to help prevent the over regulations on our industry. We are now providing education with NADRA's Master Deck Builder Certification programs. MORE

A little holiday humor from the Beaudry's to you

It is one of the downsides to living in a home of a certain age, something always needs repairing. While most of us despair and see dollar signs when a part of our home starts to deteriorate, Roger and Pamela Lupei saw an opportunity when their old deck began to fall apart.Situated on a double, corner lot, the home has a large side lawn, but the old deck provided a view straight out into the street. Roger says he knew that he wanted that view to change when they built a new deck. More
