BRICK, NJ -- Jeff Schulz’s entire life has involved woodworking. As a young boy, he routinely helped his father complete numerous projects ranging from the building of cabinets and bookcases to fences.

Today, Schulz owns JD Schulz Custom Woodwork, a business he started nearly two decades ago in Howell, NJ after years working professionally for several local cabinetry and construction firms. Never investing in any form of marketing, his company’s success lies solely in its ongoing ability to satisfy the general contracting needs of residents based throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties as well as their continued referrals and word-of-mouth advertising.

“Fortunately, no matter the economic conditions, we have worked non-stop, six days a week, for the past two decades,” says Schulz. “Throughout this time, we have fulfilled nearly every request imaginable. We’ve designed and built multi-million dollar homes, multi-story additions, roofs, docks, decks, interior and exterior upgrades and even the occasional lattice and gate. The only constant is our dedication to unsurpassed quality.” 

Deeply involved in each layer of his firm’s construction efforts from design to completion, Schulz is also meticulous about the proper choice of fasteners, which he believes are essential for ensuring the long-term structural integrity of any project. Among his prerequisites are the use of stainless steel fasteners due to their ability to provide excellent protection against unsightly staining, streaking and connection failures that are common in either acidic or salt water environments and/or related to the corrosives found in wood preservatives like alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ).

“I only use stainless steel fasteners due to their durability and longevity,” offers Schulz. “The integrity of each and every structure we build is an essential part of our business that we absolutely refuse to compromise.”

As a result, for the past 12 years Schulz has relied on Manasquan Premium Fasteners for all forms of stainless steel fasteners ranging from screws, joist hangers, bolts, brackets and clips to siding and ring nails. “It’s not only that Manasquan stocks about 90 percent of everything I need right in their warehouse, it’s that their service is so exemplary,” adds Schulz. “Depending on my schedule, they will either put together a package for pick up on my way to a project or drop ship the order for delivery within a day or two. 

“In addition, they are constantly updating their inventory with the latest fasteners from all the leading manufacturers. Subsequently, I’m always sampling the newest products and deciding upon the ones that work best for us. For stainless steel fasteners, there isn’t anyone else that I would totally trust or recommend.”
