About DIY Done Right

With wood, a hammer and the right hardware, you can build almost anything. Well, that’s what we believe. At Simpson Strong-Tie, we have been helping engineers, architects, contractors and other construction professionals build safe, strong homes and buildings for nearly six decades.

Based in Pleasanton, California, we manufacture metal connectors and fasteners (nails and screws). These products not only can hold homes and buildings together, but can help you accomplish your home improvement projects. From fixing your fence post to building shelves for your garage and a planter box for your deck, we have the connectors and fasteners to help tackle your project with confidence. Our products are available at thousands of local hardware and home improvement stores across North America—just ask for the Simpson Strong-Tie® brand.

We believe in quality craftsmanship, safety and doing it right the first time around. Our goal is to help you Build Anything. Your Way. Done Right.

We encourage you to share your projects with us and with others by posting comments and uploading your photos.

Thank you for visiting us. We look forward to seeing your projects and hearing your ideas!

Simpson Strong-Tie Teams with Mike Holmes

Mike Holmes

When you tackle a new project, it's always good to have a strong partner. We're excited to be teaming with Mike Holmes as a HOLMES approved product partner. Mike is a professional contractor and the popular host and creator of the hit TV series Holmes on Homes®. With more than 30 years of experience in the building and renovation industry, it's his passion to Make It Right®.

We also believe in this approach and are proud to join forces with him and to help you take on your DIY project.

Mike has kicked off a deck safety campaign with Simpson Strong-Tie to give homeowners resources to help them make sure their decks are safe. A wood deck typically lasts 10-15 years and should be inspected at least once a year to make sure it's safe for you and your family. Together with Mike Holmes, we are helping homeowners get their decks ready for spring and make them safe and strong.
