Getting your deck ready for spring

Punxsutawney Phil promises only six more weeks of the cold snowy weather.

 

As I write this it is once again snowing outside the office window, yet everyone seems to be looking towards the upcoming spring. People are already talking about planning gardens, cookouts, and the like. If you are dreaming of life on your deck this spring and summer, now is the time to plan ahead for annual maintenance. Skipping a day of TLC for your deck in the spring can end up costing you big money in the long run.

What you don't know about deck safety could KILL YOU!....well at least brake your ankle.

A simple miss step and I am in a cast for 6 weeks with a broken ankle.

We have all heard about how so many accidents happen in the home. On average 6,000 deaths a year are from in home accidents. Honestly I don’t know if this includes the deck, but as I found out last week accidents happen on the deck as well. A simple miss step and I am in a cast for 6 weeks with a broken ankle. SO since I am stuck at my desk with my foot up and everyone is running around doing the heavy lifting for me let’s talk deck safety.

Summer Cookout 2017

This past Friday the staff and their families here at Atlantis Rail Systems & Suncor Stainless stoked up the grill and cracked open a cold drink for our annual company cook out. This yearly tradition is a chance for all our employees and their families to let their hair down and blow off some steam. Our work day ended a few hours early to enjoy good food, games, waterslides, and even an ice cream truck.
