Deck & Railing Systems, Inc, Duradek / Durarail Systems Inc. and Duradek West (DRichey Enterprises), has been serving the industry since 1985. We have chosen materials based on a philosophy of providing products that will serve our customers over the long term, absolutely considered low maintenance. We're concerned about the rising cost of residual maintenance of low cost product which require costly service over the life of the materials. Our systems can be considered as "Green" since they do not experience the constant dollar load of other materials requiring recoating, painting and such.
