Our company was born out of an installation company who got tired of using difficult and time consuming pedestals so we did something about it. We created Skydeck USA and the SkyJack Pedestal Product Line which is made BY installers FOR installers - to save you time, labor, money, and migraines!
We have installed and worked with the installers on some of the largest and most prominent rooftop decks and patios in the USA. Lean on our experience through the following services:
Real Time Project Consultation.
Onsite Team Training For Your Crew.
Takeoff and Product Estimation Assistance.
