NADRA HIGHLIGHTS


Trends in railing materials: Support NADRA
NADRA
Recent homeowner surveys show that more and more consumers are choosing mixed material railing systems. Leading materials include wood and metal balusters. In addition, aluminum railing is one of the fastest growing materials in key markets across the country.

We need your help and input on the latest railing trends. NADRA has teamed up with Principia to provide regional reports on the decking and railing business. Your input is important. Besides, we are raffling four $25 gift cards and one $100 gift certificates for contractors and the same for dealers and distributors that complete the survey. Please click on the link to answer questions on railing.
