Concrete Stain / Quikrete

Transform boring driveways, garage floors, sidewalks, and patios into aesthetically pleasing surfaces through the use of concrete and masonry stains from Quikrete. There are three stain options to choose from, each one offering its own unique look. Etching Stain permanently stains concrete in one step and delivers a marble-like appearance with warm earth tones and unique shading. Penetrating Concrete Stain is a UV-resistant formula that provides an opaque appearance with a deep, rich color highlighted by natural variations in concrete and masonry. Translucent Concrete Stain is a semi-transparent, water-based, polymer-bonded stain that highlights the natural variations in concrete and masonry surfaces. The three stains are available in a variety of colors. 




Cement and Concrete Products / Quikrete

Quikrete has played a role in delivering durable, long-lasting projects for 75 years and has been a major component of new construction as well as helping to bring old projects back to life. Quikrete offers more than 200 products ranging from structural concrete and masonry mortar to water repellents and decorative finishes. With over 150 manufacturing plants, Quikrete is the largest manufacturer of pre-blended, packaged concrete and related products in North America, providing what is necessary for any concrete construction job, be it residential or commercial, big or small. 




Outdoor Kitchen Cabinets / Danver

Stainless steel construction makes the entire line of Danver’s indoor/outdoor kitchen products virtually maintenance-free, the company says. But homeowners need not opt for a strictly stainless steel finish: dozens of finish combinations are available, including custom painted color options and powder-coat painted wood finishes on doors and drawer fronts. 




Hardscaping / Keystone Retaining Wall Systems

Keystone offers a range of segmental retaining wall products for both structural and landscape use as well as pavers, patio stones, edgers, and capstones and the pins and tools needed for creating distinctive hardscapes. Attractive, functional, and durable, the products are versatile and easy to install. Keystone’s landscape wall systems can be used to create small to mid-size gravity retaining walls and outdoor living elements such as kitchens, fireplaces, fire pits, benches, and more. Patio stones and pavers are offered in a wide range of styles, sizes, and textures. 




PVC Decking / Kleer

Using 100 percent PVC deckboards that are lightweight, easy to handle, and resist mold, mildew, and insects, Kleer’s decking solution combines the deckboards with KleerKlip, a specially designed system that conceals fasteners within the grooved edges of the boards. The boards are designed with an embossed pattern for added traction and are available in solid colors with wood-grain patterns, and streaked colors such as Brazilian Redwood and Golden Teak. The product does not splinter and includes a 25-year stain-resistance warranty.
