Product will last forever

Purchased the decking separtely from railing & framing and had it installed by a local contractor. If you are shipping this to your home, you must have two reasonably fit individuals to take it off the truck.

The project involved a two tier deck with two flights of stairs. The upper deck forms a roof over a 80 square foot storage area so having a waterproof solution I wouldn't have to fuss with in 5 - 10 years was a technical requirement. Winnipeg sees up to +35C sunny days in the summer and -40C in the winter and vinyl solutions have seen mixed results here.

The contractor (with no previous aluminum deck experience) did a great job. This could easily be a DIY job on a regular (rectangle) shaped deck.

My nits are that using this product for stairs was tedious (plus the the instructions were "look at a picture"). Craftbilt should consider an special solution for stairs. I also had to hunt around for some drip flashing and eventually got something that worked at Roofmart.

The product still gets an A as the final result was spectacular.

Deck

We are very impressed with the quality of Craft-Bilt materials and the craftsmanship of their installers. Our new deck is beautiful. Moreover, it is water-tight so the space underneath stays dry.

Rimless glass railing

I installed a rimless glass rail around my deck as well as a picket railing down my 10 stairs. The product looks fantastic.
Customer service was excellent - both order desk and shipping department.
The written instructions were vague. The drawing of the post with glass was useless. It didn't show the detail of how the stops fit into it.
It would help if each part shipped had identifying part numbers on them and those numbers were referenced in the assembly instructions. I found it odd that there is a lengthy YouTube video showing how sturdy the railing system is but not one showing installation. As long as it meets code, that's all that matters. Assembly tips would be much more helpful in a YouTube.

Hi John,
Glad you figured it out! And thanks for your business :-)
DIY is kind of new to us, and not a big part of our business. But you're right, so when things slow down this winter we will get around to updating the instructions. Thanks for your input!

New porch columns and railing

When our old porch columns (wooden) started to rot, we shopped around for replacements. Craft-Bilt had one of the best-looking all-aluminum products we found, and one of the best prices for the quality of the product. To top it off, installation was completed weeks earlier than we anticipated, in just a couple of days (to remove all the old columns, put up the new ones, and install new railing). The job was completed quickly and very professionally: the new columns look excellent, the installers were careful with the rest of the porch structure, and we look forward to enjoying the new railing for years to come.

Exterior Railings on my front porch

We have used Craft Bilt twice now. It is always a great experience visiting them in the showroom, they are so friendly and helpful. We had beautiful custom railings with plexi glass installed by a Craft Bilt Installer. They did an amazing job, and left no mess behind ! We are very picky and they did it perfect ;) Thank you Craft Bilt, we always recommend you to all our friends and family !

Front Porch Railing

I contacted Craft-Bilt after a long search on the Internet for a local provider of aluminum railings. I visited their offices where I met Sedat. I showed him some pictures of my property and described what I was looking for. He was able to provide me a drawing of the project, and price quotes as well as an estimated date for installation. They delivered well inside the date, and their installers were experienced, professional, and they cleaned up after completion. Good products, good installation, I am very satisfied.

water tight aluminum decking

After lots of research in many different water tight decking options I came across aluminum decking online and decided to get some samples from craft-bilt and a another company and decided on craft-bilt decking based on my own educated opinion and comparing spec. sheets, alloys, hardness, finish, etc.. With a background in metallurgy and working with aluminum for a living as an aircraft structures technician I had no objections to using this product as it is a material that will last for many years, so my wife and I decided to spend the extra money and rebuild our second level deck here in Shawville Quebec so we will never have to worry about it again. The staff at Craft-bilt were very helpful and replied in a timely matter, the decking arrived packaged extremely well, was pretty straight forward to install and all the fasteners they shipped are of top quality.
We are very happy with the deck so far and loved being able to sit under the deck in the rain and stay dry. We are now ordering Craft-bilt railing and led sconce lighting to finish the job.

Grand Vista Sunroom Kit

After much research and several visits to the showroom we settled on a 10x16 Craft-Bilt Grand Vista Sunroom Kit. We found the staff to be very helpful and they answered all our questions, working with us to get the proper permits for our town. The kit itself required a moderately high level of skill to assemble but everything was well marked and fit together nicely resulting in a very professionally finished sunroom. We are very pleased and our friends are envious!

Aluminium porch railing

This is the second time that I have used a craftbilt railing system. The quality of the product is excellent and easy to install. The finished rail is sturdy, has clean lines and does not look any worse after a few years of use.

Large 14ft X 44ft Patio Roof

Craft Built has a fantastic show room displaying their quality products on Green Court in Ajax which is worth the trip to see.
Their Sales and Installation Advisor "Sadat" was very thorough with his on location assessment of what we wanted, product options and installation details.
The Craft Built installers were very friendly, professional and knowledgeable during the installation leaving our patio work site clean and tidy at the end of each day they were installing the project.
We would like to thank our installers very much for a great job well done, thank Sadat for his great service and Craft -Bilt for their high quality products.
We are extremely pleased with the final product and perfect installation
Family, friends and neighbours are all very impressed with this new addition to our home and we are enjoying the extended use of our outdoor living space during inclement weather.
From start to finish we would highly recommend the Craft-Bilt Team and their products to anyone considering a project in their area of expertise.
Very happy customers,
Dave and Donna Gray
