GEN X Aluminum Framing Kit

Great customer service

They have what you need.one stop shopping that is great they help you pick out what you need and also willing to help even after the sale.

Austin Mask
Great product

Super easy to install with little to no background. I was able to knock out a deck extension in a few hours. One thing I will say don’t buy a cheap rivet gun like I did.

Cory Carlson

GEN X Aluminum Framing Kit

Great product, just what we needed

Great product. We will be able to create the frame for a deck. I would have given a 5, but having a cross glued y to the box should not be there.
