They may be simple structures, but there’s a lot that can go wrong.
For builders, the first hurdle is finding the right products to do the job, whether it’s a specialty hanger or a form for the piers. If you the right stuff on your shelves, that helps, but installing these things correctly is no guarantee. You also need to arm your customers with the most important tool: good information.
- Poor pier installations
- Attaching stair stringers the wrong way or at the wrong height
- Over-spanning composite decking (in the field, on the stairs)
- Cantilevers can’t do that

You need to help them understand that at times choosing a more expensive product may in fact save them expensive callbacks. We will show you how to do that.
