Rick’s aluminum patio covers were a big hit last weekend at the Portland Yard, Garden & Patio Show, where several customers scheduled installations on the spot. The covers are made from an aluminum frame with a shatterproof polycarbonate roof that can withstand up to 25 pounds of snow and winds up to 100 miles per hour. They can be customized to an existing deck or patio and can even be modified to fit a pergola.
Our vinyl and cedar pergolas, a perennial favorite, also received a lot of attention. Two of our managers — Ben Fitzgerald from corporate headquarters and Bruce Lovell from our Hillsboro office — offered a free pergola building seminar in one of the seminar pavilions on Sunday, during which they built an actual pergola to be donated to a charitable organization.
We also received lots of positive feedback on the show’s entryway, which Rick’s Fencing built and donated to the show’s sponsor.
“The best part of the show is always getting to visit with the many happy customers from years past,” said Nick Marshall, general manager of Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking.
