What is "Deck Plate"?

"Deck Plate" is an old Navy term coined to describe leaders who know their mission, their people, and develop their people beyond expectations to work as a team and as individuals. We go beyond checking off boxes, time limits, and the quick hello. We have hands-on construction experience and promise to empower you with the information you need about the home you are considering.
