Deck Of The Month Winner - March 2019

Mar 15, 2019 | Posted in Deck of the Month By Jamie B.

Deck of the Month Winner for March!

Congratulations to David S. in Idaho for winning our Deck of the Month contest for March! Proving that truly any weather is deck weather, David's deck looks amazing and provides a cozy place to look out over the snowy, expansive fields. The Trex decking was installed using the Trex Hideaway System, a hidden fastener specially designed to work with Trex grooved composite boards. These hidden clips install between the deck boards and fasten directly to the joist for no visible screw heads and consistent spacing throughout.

Made from durable, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, Trex Hideaway Fasteners are also sealed with a black oxide finish to truly disappear when installed. Working with non-grooved composite boards? The Trex Hideaway Groove Cutter can help route out an opening to help prepare your Trex boards.

Here's a video that David was generous enough to share with us! Even in the brisk Idaho winter, the Trex Hideaway system installs quickly and easily. Especially when using a handy Pneumatic Gun to keep things moving fast.

No more stubbing your toe on an old, rising nail; and gone are the days of catching the edge of your snow shovel when clearing off the back deck. For a smooth, blemish-free surface that will help your deck look and feel its best year after year, discover the wonders of Hidden Fasteners. Long-lasting and looking great, now that's a deck to cheers to!

Congrats again, David from Black Dog Framer and Kendall Homes Inc.! A DecksDirect T-Shirt is heading your way!

Feeney DesignRail Kits

A High-Profile Look with a Low-Labor Install


Feeney Inc. has been creating top-of-the-line stainless steel cable railing and products for over 70 years from the San Francisco Bay area. As they've been growing and innovating the cable railing industry, Feeney has also sought to streamline their cable railing systems. So, whether it's your first deck or your 50th, Feeney wants to help you look like the pro you are.

That's why they've just created their newest, most convenient railing method yet; complete DesignRail Kits. These kits include top and bottom rails, decorative snap covers, pre-drilled intermediate pickets, all mounting brackets and installation hardware. Everything you need to complete your cable railing section all together in one package.

DecksDirect Pro Tip: When mounting the included brackets to the two posts in your section, not all openings need to be filled.
Top Rail Brackets: Use two of the included #10 x 1-3/4 inch screws diagonally across from each other on the bracket
Bottom Rail Brackets: Use two of the included #10 x 1-3/4 inch screws on the two outer-most openings of the bracket.

Bonus DecksDirect Pro Tip: Pre-drill 1/8" wide pilot holes in posts for easier bracket attachment.

DecksDirect Pro Tip: Feeney CableRail on Stairs

Mar 04, 2019 | Posted in How-to Tips By Jamie B.

How to Install Feeney Cable Railing on Staircases

How to Install Feeney CableRail on Staircases

One of the most popular deck trends over the past several years has been installing a stainless steel cable railing infill on your outdoor space. This corrosion-resistant infill is sleek, long-lasting and allows your view to remain entirely free and open with hardly any upkeep or maintenance throughout the years. Feeney Inc. has even created CableRail Assembly Kits which include all the hardware you would need to install a run of cable. Getting a minimalistic and modern deck railing has never been easier.

Now for a DecksDirect Pro Tip: When installing your Feeney CableRail Stair Kit be sure to install your Threaded Terminal End at the bottom stair posts. This will allow the kit to be incredibly easy to tension and altogether a quicker installation. Installing in this way will also allow the Quick-Connect Pivot Fitting to reach top stair posts that don't allow access to the back face.

The parts and pieces of the Feeney CableRail Stair Kit including an attached threaded terminal end, a quick-connect pivot fitting a snug-grip washer nut, and necessary beveled washers.

CableRail Stari Kits by Feeney are available in 20 foot lengths and feature a pre-swaged Threaded Terminal End to eliminate any crimping on the job. These kits also includea Quick-Connect Pivot fitting, a Snug-Grip Washer Nut, a Beveled Washer and a Flat Washer. For a complete run of cable all in one package, look no further than the CableRail Assembly Kits by Feeney.
