|How we build better,stronger islands than
the other guys.
|CROMAGNA MAN ISLANDS- Building a BBQ island out of
block has its advantages and disadvantages.
Advantages- if you ever need a bomb shelter you now have
Disadvantages- It is a permanent fixture requiring permits,
has to be built on location and take at least 7 days for the
structure with a crew of workers and all the mess that
comes along with that process. Lastly, if any stainless ever
needs to be replaced at a later date it is a major project to
re-size the openings.

|MODULAR ISLANDS- Building a bbq island out of
Modular pieces also has its advantages and disadvantages.

|Welded frame also has its advantages and
Advantages- It’s a solid one piece structure
Disadvantages- The biggest disadvantage is the structure

they don’t tell you is when the hardy backer is installed the
screws break through the powder coating making every
screw an opportunity for rust to grow. Also, similar to block
built, if any stainless ever needs to be replaced it is a major
project to resize openings.
