Serving Bay Area Building Professionals Since 1935

Addison Street

Located in downtown Berkeley is this uptown looking mixed use commercial project that we supplied materials for. This 62-unit development features curbside retail with five levels of apartments and one large roof deck with city and Bay side views.


We furnished Marvin windows and doors, Steelcraft doors and metal frames, Trex decking and custom millwork, including custom wood doors for the lobby entry and retail spaces.

To meet the demands of commercial real estate a collection of Marvin windows and doors were installed in each of the apartments. Marvin was chosen because they build high-quality, long-lasting products that require little maintenance.

Six stories up and open to the city and our Bay Area weather with views of the Bay is our Trex roof deck. Installed with hidden fasteners, which is a great look BTW, these eco-friendly deck boards feature a long-lasting, weather resistant surface with low-maintenance required. Perfect place for a night on the town.

Naturally we are very pleased with how this project turned out and thanks to the project manager for the tour. If you are a commercial builder, we’d love to see what you build — and if you are doing a project, give us a call and we’ll show you what we can do for you.

Messmer's logo
Large hardwood deck treated with Messmer's penetrating oil

We just started carrying Messmer’s UV Plus penetrating oil finishes in the store. This single coat product protects wood from damaging UV rays and is available in two flavors, UV Plus for Redwood or Cedar decks, fences and siding, and UV Plus for Ipe, Mahogany and other hardwood decking.

Messmer’s is a high solids content product with 50 to 60% content versus 36 to 38% content found in similar type products. It’s the high solids content that gives exterior wood surfaces the maximum protection and excellent resistance to UV radiation, helping to reduce warping, cracking and shrinkage.

Why protect wood from UV?

Ultraviolet or UV radiation is produced by the sun and it destroys the color pigments found in wood and the lignin that bond the wood fibers together. Over time the cell walls weaken and moisture penetrates the lumber causing it to swell, shrink, warp and split. There is not a true test to actually determine the amount of UV protection you need — but the more solids the better.

Kleer Trimboards deliver

Developed with a micro-structure density similar to White Pine, Kleer PVC Trimboards deliver all the advantages of natural wood and do not splinter, rot, delaminate or swell, and can be installed in direct contact with the ground, masonry or other potentially moist surface.

They come white so painting isn’t required or they can be easily painted using a 100% acrylic latex paint. These reversible trimboards have one side smooth and one side with a slight wood grain pattern.

Applications include corners, fascia, soffits, rakes, casings, cornices and other trim applications. They are worth checking out in the yard.

Available in the following sizes

1x4, 1x6, 5/4x4, 5/4x6     18' length

Additional Kleer PVC trimboard sizes, trim corners, decorative moulding and beadboard are available via special order, allow 1-2 days for delivery.
