Easy to order and install, Deck Kits are available to DIY homeowners and residential contractors through top home improvement retailers

To meet continued demand for outdoor home improvement ahead of the 2023 selling season, Fortress Building Products adds customizable Deck Kits to its line-up of best-in-class outdoor living solutions.

By extending its newest offering to leading home improvement retailers, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Wayfair, Fortress® can offer DIY homeowners and residential contractors quick and convenient avenues to purchase an all-in-one deck system.

“Homeowners and do-it-yourselfers who have little to no deck building experience can spend countless hours trying to figure out what they need to build a 12’ x 12’ deck from the ground up,” said Glenn Coffee, Director of Channel Sales, Retail & E-Commerce, Fortress Building Products. “Deck Kits allow consumers to shop decking as they see the category, eliminating the unnecessary time, confusion and frustration often associated with the traditional material specification/ordering process."

Fortress Deck Kits include all of the products and components needed to build a standard 12’ x 12’ deck. To deliver lasting performance in nearly any climate, each deck is supported by the industry-leading Evolution steel deck framing system. A strong and durable framing solution, Evolution will sidestep any issues associated with moisture absorption, is backed by a 25-year limited manufacturer warranty and received a Class-A Fire Rating through Intertek for superior fire resilience. To accommodate specific project needs, customers can choose from a freestanding configuration or an attached-deck option, and can opt to include Fortress’ compatible steel stair system. A complete package, customers will also enjoy Al¹³ PLUS aluminum railing which is high performance and low maintenance. The outdoor building products manufacturer will be introducing additional Deck Kits in the future to meet demand for other standard sizes, styles and material preferences.
