OSSIAN, Indiana, January 8, 2024 — Perma-Column deck posts are one of the most innovative deck-building products of 2023, a panel of expert judges determined at the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo™, co-located with Deck Expo. The quickest way to build deck foundations, Perma-Column precast concrete deck posts eliminate the hassles of mixing and pouring concrete on the job site. The ICC-ES-certified deck posts enable and empower builders to build decks faster, sell more decks, and make more money.
