We could tell Bob and his wife had real gumption. The two were searching for a weather-resistant railing system for their forest-facing deck, and one which they could install themselves.

He even offered to provide us a narrative emphasizing the ease of installation his wife and he were able to achieve while installing the system by themselves. Thanks Bob, we’re just happy to know you’re happy. Look at that deck!
