Mullet’s Aluminum Awarded Balcony Railing Replacement Projects

In an announcement earlier this morning, Mullet’s Aluminum was awarded dual contracts by the Privateer North Condo Association and by the Privateer Condo Association South. Under terms of the contract, Mullet’s Aluminum will replace the original concrete block walls on the balconies of each tower with a new, fully welded aluminum and glass railing system fabricated and installed by Mullet’s Aluminum personnel.

“We have completed the Privateer South tower and have recently started on the Privateer North tower.” states Jay Coblentz, Director of Sales at Mullet’s Aluminum. “There has been incredibly positive feedback from owners, guests, real estate agents and residents on Longboat Key about the significant improvements that have already been made to the South tower. We are thrilled to have been selected and given the opportunity by the association boards and owners at both properties.

Constructed in 1972 and 1974 respectively, the Privateer South and North Condominium towers are located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, behind the gates at the prestigious Longboat Key Club. “The relevance in what we are doing cannot be understated.” Says Nate Yoder, Director of Marketing at Mullet’s Aluminum. “We are taking buildings that were dated with partially blocked waterfront views – and with the addition of new aluminum and glass railing – transforming each of them into a modern and current structure that aesthetically blends into their beautiful waterfront surroundings. Now, owners have an unobstructed view of the beautiful white sandy beach on Longboat Key, clear aqua green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and those gorgeous blue Florida skies. The transformation has been amazing and perhaps one of the single biggest visual changes to any structure on Longboat Key in recent years.”

Spear-heading the project on behalf of the South Privateer owners was Alan Yaruss, President of Designs & Purposes, Inc. Gulf Coast Builders Xchange member, Forristall Enterprises was contracted to complete the concrete cutting and blockwall demolition scopes.
