Pressure treated for ground and above ground contact, treated lumber is wood that is specifically for exterior use only. Treated lumber is also insect and rot resistant and painted or stained as well. Treated lumber also requires, most importantly, that you use the right fastener, galvanized or stainless steel.

The bumpers on your dock protect every vessel coming to your pier. Install vertical bumpers for the pilings and horizontal bumpers for the frame of the dock made from materials that will withstand the elements and consistent contact.

Saltwater is inherently corrosive, which is why it is vital that all materials used for marine construction have been duly treated to withstand this environment. From foundation piling to line-wood lumber, only the strongest products will stand the test of time.


Crushed stone aggregate that's 1 ½" in diameter is pretty large, which is why it's usually not used for decorative applications. DGA stone this size is used as a paving base, while non-DGA crushed stone this size is used for wells, drainage, or septic systems.


Porches enhance the value of a home and give the residents a great place to hang out. But it's hard to enjoy the great outdoors when you're plagued by bugs. Having a screened enclosure installed can restore your enjoyment of your porch.

Columns usually seem like a simple enough structure to install, but the older designs of columns involve way more intricate designs.

Working with plaster requires the use of a multitude of tools. These include trowels, hammers, utility knives, scratching tools and more. Plasterers also work with various cements and color wash ingredients.


When fabricated to specification, aluminum profiles can be made as strong as is needed for most applications. Aluminum is especially recommended for cold weather applications, as when temperatures fall the aluminum becomes stronger.


The bottom line is, gravel driveways provide a relatively inexpensive alternative to an asphalt driveway. To determine how much aggregate you’ll need delivered, you need to measure the driveway length and then its width at the widest point. This will give you a final square footage, which you need to multiply by the layer thickness you’re looking for.


High quality manufactured stone is a popular building material. Cast in molds taken from natural stone, it’s carefully colored to resemble the specific type of stone it emulates. Cultured stone is generally colorfast, but like natural stone, the colors may weather over time.


There are many benefits of aluminum, no matter what the application. It is extremely resistant to corrosion and weathering, both reducing maintenance and extending the lifetime of the product. In addition, the reflectance of the material offers valuable insulation benefits.


Plaster worker guilds were already flourishing in Philadelphia by the 1790s. In 1864, a plasterers' union was founded. Its members included American and British workers.


While standing seam metal roofs are popular and durable, modern aluminum roofs are often designed to emulate other materials. Interlocking aluminum panels can create a tight, waterproof roof that resembles traditional shingles, wooden shakes, or even slate.

Polystyrene foams are made using blowing agents that form bubbles and expand the foam. In the case of expanded polystyrene, these agents are usually hydrocarbons such as pentane that have a relatively low impact on the environment.


It’s easy to concentrate on the wood or other material when you’re looking at a dock, but it’s not very effective if there’s no place to tie up the boat. Fortunately, marine construction suppliers carry hardware like dock cleats, line holders, and more, so you’re completely covered.


Planning to use concrete in a water environment, such as for a bridge or boat ramp? Concrete is naturally porous, and if water seeps in too deeply it can lead to problems. The right concrete treatments can seal the concrete to improve its durability and longevity.


Quality aggregate has a significant effect on the strength and durability of concrete projects. The aggregate must be equal to or stronger than the final hardened cement, and rounded aggregate particles help create a nearly voidless concrete that is durable and long-lasting.
