Welcome to DK Railings – a journey of success, all thanks to two brothers with a vision. It all began with a phone call that changed their lives. Dax, the older brother, had had enough of the service industry and decided it was time for something new. After putting in 5 years installing railings as a subcontractor, he realized there was an opportunity to grow in the business and asked his younger brother Kaid, “You want to install railings?”
That conversation set the wheels in motion!
Determined to make their business a reality, Kaid traded in his beloved charger for a reliable business truck. With a serious commitment to their venture, they wasted no time and incorporated the business right away. Dax and Kaid’s relentless drive transformed them into more than just a small subcontracting company. Armed with a small laptop and a dollar store plastic binder, their truck became their business.
As they set out to conquer the railing industry, they were driven by a sense of urgency, always aiming to raise the bar. Double-digit growth was the norm, year after year. They embraced the mentality of “Think it, do it,” always moving forward, and it paid off. Soon, they expanded their team and moved into a facility that truly reflected their growing success.
It wasn’t just about business, though. Dax and Kaid recognized the importance of fun and great service. Their mission was to ensure that every interaction with DK Railings was a memorable one. They hired childhood friends, Jeff and Blair, who shared their enthusiasm for the business and its core values.
Today, DK Railings stands as a testament to their journey. The business has grown beyond their wildest dreams, but their commitment to having fun, creating great experiences , and crafting amazing masterpieces remains unchanged. So, join us in celebrating the journey of DK Railings, where hard work and determination, turned dreams into reality.
