Deck of the Month Winner April 2018

Congratulations to Teri and Bob from Pennsylvania for winning the Deck of the Month contest for April! They added an entire front porch to their house and used DecksDirect products to add style. They used Vintage Series Round Iron Basket Baluster by Fortress in both single and double basket styles. Teri and Bob secured their balusters to the rails using a variety of connectors by Fortress, Tehk, and our Universal Round Baluster Connectors.

Check out what Teri had to say about their project:

"We are really pleased with the way it has all turned out. We literally have people stop every day to tell us how much they love the new wrap around front porch. The Fortress Balusters make it!

I designed the whole porch and Bob built it with a local contractor’s help.

When designing I wanted something more decorative than the basic wood or straight metal so the baskets looked beautiful. I also wanted some level of privacy...but an unobstructed view from the porch. This works perfectly because when cars are driving past they can’t see in (think of the effect of blinds on a window) yet we can see everything while sitting on the porch.

I had a great experience with your company. The pricing was great and the processing/shipping speed was excellent. We are delighted with the quality of the product and the overall appearance of the finished product.

We were asked to have our home on the house tour for our town. We will put a good word in for Decks Direct."

They can now enjoy their new front porch while sporting their new DecksDirect gear!

This porch looks great and it's an awesome kick off to our summer Deck of the Month Contest Winners!!
