Duradek Proud Member of NADRA

The North America Deck and Railing Association is the voice of the deck and railing industry and provides valuable resources to its members, industry associates and consumers. NADRA's mission is to:
"...provide a unified source for professional development, promotion, growth and sustenance of the deck and railing industry in North America so that members can exceed the expectations of their customers."

NADRA is in its 8th year as a 501(c)6 not-for-profit corporation and operates with an emphasis on safe building practices and deck safety. It was founded as a need developed for a unified voice in the industry stemming from concerns raised at the 2004 DeckExpo over compatibility of new generation treated wood. Since that time, NADRA has become the official sponsor of DeckExpo, the premier trade event for the industry produced by Hanley Wood.

Duradek is proud to be a part of a non-profit organization that operates under shared philosophies of performance, respect and sustainability. NADRA members are balanced between builders, suppliers and manufacturers, and this combined voice and perspective enables NADRA to effectively represent the industry regarding important issues such as code development to regulating bodies.

With a very strong consumer focus, NADRA is committed to empowering the industry to provide consumers with:
  • Beautiful decks that will enrich their family lives
  • Decks constructed from high quality but affordable materials
  • Decks installed efficiently, safely and properly
  • Decks constructed by professional and knowledgeable builders that they can trust.
  • Informationn on safety, design and products

Deck safety is a critical issue to NADRA, and the organization has a mandate of increasing public awareness of the necessity of regular inspections and maintenance of existing decks, and proper installation of new decks. This initiative prompted NADRA to declare May as Deck Safety Month® in 2006.

Another public relations initiative founded by NADRA is the Deck for a Soldier® program. This public service benefits a member of the US Armed Forces returning from a tour of duty and is funded by member donations.

Duradek looks forward to a  long relationship with the influential industry organization and encourages anyone looking for decking information and resources to visit the NADRA website. For general consumer information or for in-depth industry issues, the best place to begin the journey of decking discover is with NADRA.
