Let Your Railing Be The S.T.A.R Of Your Backyard Project


star railingStars can come in many forms, from gracing international stages, to selling out sporting events and captivating you on the silver screen. They can also quite literally fall from the sky and be a member of your favorite constellation. Children receive them in sticker form for a job well done, and they even have their own key on your smartphone! Yes, the star lives a very privileged life no matter what form it takes. One would think it would be quite difficult to capture any of these star varieties and have them a permanent part of your backyard space, performing night after nights for years on end. But what if you could?

star railingWell the late Joe Zen of East & West Alum Craft Ltd had this vision, and used it to develop his own S.T.A.R (or Snap Tight Aluminum Railing).  The concept was simple: introduce a low-maintenance option of aluminum railing that not only is cheaper to manufacture than metal (we’re talking the 1960s here), but is more durable than traditional wooden rails. So Joe, the self-described “guru of aluminum railing” set to work, and after several trials and prototypes, the S.T.A.R Railing system was born!

The result was a fully modular railing system that is easily modified and assembled on site. Because of its versatility, the S.T.A.R system is able to adapt to most residential and commercial project needs, and its patented “snap installation” makes applications a breeze. The adjustable stair system is also a pioneer of the industry, and the ability to adjust heights and sizes to any stair angle needed is a great asset. The S.T.A.R system is available in a variety of colours and styles, so you’re virtually guaranteed to find a rail system that suites your project needs.

You can use S.T.A.R to adjourn balconies on high-rises or apartment complexes, border fishing docks, decorate store fronts or complete patios. A great looking railing system can often be the accent piece that really draws your project together, and is what sticks out as a memorable signature for both current clientele and future clients. And to top it all off, the eco-friendly finish and material add a great green component to your building portfolio as well, with options such as S.T.A.R often considered for LEEDS government credits.

Deck Building

We Build All Year Round

The most important part of any deck project is finding the right builder to do the work. Our builders have the right set of skills, our designers share your vision, and we always can adjust project according your price range

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.


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.
