Each year, one of the most anticipated events among deck builders, dealers and manufacturers is the North American Deck and Railing Association’s (NADRA) recognition of outstanding deck, porch, and outdoor projects. This year, NADRA celebrated the winners of the National Deck Competition on April 22 in Clearwater Beach, Fla. Deck building pros from across North America (and beyond) entered this 11th annual competition. Projects were judged by a panel of experts based on use of space, functionality, creativity, use of materials, and overall visual appeal. Of the many notable projects, pictured here are an assortment of first place winners. To learn more about NADRA, visit nadra.org.
