August 2016 Western Woods Newsletter

launchgolf16_webOur annual customer appreciation golf tournament marks another successful year for Western Woods. Over a hundred people came out and braved the heat to relax, make connections (new and old), play a little golf and have some fun!

We are excited to share our memories with you. Please take a moment to watch the short slide show from the golf tournament.

The Western Woods family understands we would be nothing if not for our customers. We hold our suppliers in the same high regard. Our annual golf tournament is a wonderful way for us to bring our customers and suppliers together and to show our appreciation.

But don’t take our word for it, here is what some of the participants had to say:

“I had a great time and always look forward to it. You guys are well organized and generous hosts!” – Greg C.

“I had a great time, still thirsty though. Looking forward to next year.” – Doug H.

The festivities will also be featured in the September issue of Lumber Merchant magazine. A special thank you to Patrick Adams for coming out and being a part of this event. And a shout out to our sponsors – it wouldn’t be possible without you!

From all of us at Western Woods we thank you for your business, support and friendship over the past 45 years. We hope everyone had a great time and we look forward to making the event bigger and better each year.

More than Lumber, Iron Railing

railing_webDid you know that we also carry a full line of iron railing here at Western Woods?

It’s a fact! We carry prefabricated 6’ and 8’ sections of railing to meet the needs of your deck, porch and garden projects. This low maintenance and incredibly durable railing product comes in three finish options; matte black, gloss black, or antique bronze.

In addition there are two styles to fulfill your client’s high end appearance needs, at affordable prices.

Each finish is adhered to the metal using a state of the art process called e-coating. This application electrically charges the iron surface to attract the paint particles. What this means to you is the railing, posts and brackets are all coated very uniformly. Sealing all welds and crevices to create a moisture barrier. Using e-coating in manufacturing also allows us efficient utilization of the coating materials which results in lower costs that are passed down to you.

The prefabricated sections are quick and easy to install using the railing posts (available in 32” or 38” to meet standard building regulations) and our bracket options. For a sleek, low profile look we suggest the straight/angle bracket or for a beefier, old world look the Superior bracket is the ticket.

We’re so confident in this product our iron railing comes with a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty. Zero upkeep, affordable, high end appearance railing all from a company you already know and trust!
