Pleasanton, Calif. — Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, announced today that deck builder Dr. Decks will join the Decks Done Right Presentation Series, a full slate of deck design and construction clinics to be held at Simpson Strong-Tie Booth #8355 during Deck Expo 2022, November 12-17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Co-located with the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo™, Deck Expo is the premier decking, railing, and outdoor living show in North America. Deck Expo features thousands of decking and outdoor living products along with educational sessions, an expo hall, and various networking opportunities for industry professionals looking to stay informed on trends and new innovations and solutions.
Known for his obsession with fit and finish and his signature Dr. Decks beanie cap, Tacoma, WA–based deck building authority Jason Russell aka The Deck Doctor, will join Simpson Strong-Tie during Deck Expo as a guest speaker to share elements from his master class sessions, including techniques for bending PVC and composite deck boards. Expo attendees visiting the Simpson Strong-Tie booth during the presentation will receive a free Dr. Decks and Simpson Strong-Tie–branded reversible beanie cap.
“Creating unique spaces is at the forefront of our design process,” says Russell. “With composite decking, it’s possible to incorporate beautiful swoops and curves into new outdoor living spaces that clients love and that are going to last for a long time.”
Additional Simpson Strong-Tie Decks Done Right presentations during Deck Expo will showcase proper deck construction techniques using Simpson Strong-Tie products, including the Quik Drive® auto-feed screw driving systems and Strong-Drive® structural fasteners. Clinics will be led by recognized Simpson Strong-Tie deck building and engineering experts including senior research and development engineer Scott Fischer, research and development engineer Rachel Holland, and education and training manager Billy Viars.
Attendees to Deck Expo can also test-drive the popular Outdoor Living Solutions software apps from Simpson Strong-Tie, including Deck Planner Software™, Pergola Planner Software™, and Fence Planner Software™, which help builders and DIYers quickly design strong and beautiful outdoor structures in just minutes using prebuilt templates or customized dimensions.
Plus, the full line of Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware will be on display at Deck Expo 2022 for contractors seeking to add elegance and structural strength to any outdoor living structure. The Mission Collection® and Avant Collection™ both feature an innovative hex-head washer and fastener combo for the look of a bolted connection that installs as easily as driving a screw.
