ProBuilder Product Report: New Products
Brand spankin' new products from Crossvile, DryJoist and more.
You’ve seen deck drainage systems, but not one that has the surface boards supported by the same structural design to create a waterproof deck joist support system. Both the company and product go by the DryJoist name. The underside of DryJoist creates a flat surface that can be painted. And because it’s made with marine-grade aluminum, the drainage system won’t deteriorate. For FREE information, visit http://pb.hotims.com/20666-262
