Many reasons to hide exist. In the animal kingdom, concealment—crypsis—is the ability to avoid detection using visual, olefactory (smell), or auditory techniques. While the tactics vary greatly, the strategic purpose is generally either an antipredator adaptation (what animal wants to be eaten?) or a predation strategy (what predator wants its hunting to be detected?).

Camouflage—the visual form of crypsis—is accomplished in several ways: a creature can modify its appearance to resemble its surroundings; it can use disruptive coloration (employing strongly contrasting patterns or colors to hide edges or distinguishing characteristics); it can eliminate shadows by fitting and flattening to its

People have always prized “the real thing” over copies. This is why there is only one Mona Lisa. Extremely accurate copies can be made, but they are not prized nearly as highly as the priceless original. The idea that the copy is inferior to the original goes back at least as far as Plato’s “Republic”, where the ideas of “imitation” and “copy” are discussed in philosophical terms.

Other commonplace expressions convey this similar concept: we say “It’s the real McCoy” and “It’s the genuine article”.

But favoritism for originals is not an absolute rule: sometimes the copy is good enough.

Aluminum is one of today’s most commonly-used metals, but its use is relatively new. Unlike some metals, for instance gold, aluminum does not naturally occur in metallic form. Moreover, aluminum didn’t exist at all in metallic form 200 years ago.

Most of today’s aluminum is either refined from bauxite, its primary ore, or it is recycled aluminum. Recycling aluminum is increasingly common, as aluminum is infinitely recyclable and the recycling of aluminum products and alloys is very energy efficient when compared to refining bauxite.

Refining bauxite into metallic aluminum happens in two stages. Bauxite is first mined, often from shallow

Deck Foundation

Helical Piles - Every good thing begins with a good foundation, and your deck is no different. Strength and stability is an important thing to build upon, and that’s why we like to build our decks upon something called Helical Piles. Often known as Screw Piles, Helical Piles are quickly becoming the most efficient and cost effective way to provide your project with a safe and sturdy foundation.

Deck Framing

Metal Framing - Once you have your post properly anchored and standing strong, it’s time for phase two: framing. Available in both metal and traditional pressure treated lumber, framing is the skeleton that supports you decking for the duration of its life.

Surfacing/Decking

Low Maintenance Materials - After your foundation is set and your framing secure, it’s time for the main event of the building process: your decking of choice. This can take on many forms, from traditional pressure treated to synthetic materials (composite/pvc), but is always accompanied by one constant; experienced and skilled build teams.

Deck Accents/Details

Having a new deck is great, but what really turns you backyard space from renovation to staycation are the character pieces and accents that you choose. Things such as custom pergolas, privacy screens, shading options and custom metal artwork can go a long way in turning your outdoor space into a retreat; and we all want the kind of yard that will leave our neighbors and friends jealous and talking.
