We're tired, yes after helping over 4 million consumers make better, more economical safe decks we really are tired. So we decided to take a break.
Our adventure started 1988 when Paul Hoffman had an idea to make a very simple deck in a box. Something that anyone could not only make, but that everyone could afford. Even today a 12x16 deck for under $800! Gosh unbelievable. No wonder that at times one out of ten decks made in the US used Dek-Block piers. THANK YOU for making this product one of the most successful products that was ever invented. Yes over 50,000,000 blocks were sold. And yes we are very grateful that they were used in over 4,000,000 decks that you are now enjoying.
For years we've given away tens of millions of free Deckplans. This generated great business because the users of the free plans went to retailers and purchased our Dek-Block piers. Now the patent on Dek-Block piers has expired, and retailers are no longer stocking them. But our plans help millions of people build safe and inexpensive decks, and we believe these plans should still be available for the good of all. We're willing to donate this website and its content to a legitimate, charitable 501(c)3 organization. Or, if you or someone you know is in the deck industry or a similar field, and wants to monetize the site, let us know what your ideas are. This could be a wonderful opportunity to give Deckplans another life.
