Most decks have specific railing requirements in order to meet local safety building codes, unless of course the deck is designed to sit close to the ground such as a platform or patio deck.

But with an elevated, two story or multilevel deck, deck railings are a ‘must-have’ for obvious reasons.

This, however, doesn’t mean that the deck railing is for safety only:  railings are an integral piece in the deck design process.

-Stylish deck railings make a huge statement, providing an abundance of curb appeal with function and fashion.

-Rails set the tone for the characteristics of a deck design.

-Options can express an elegant, contemporary, traditional, or a rustic ‘look’.

-Rails can coordinate with deck boards or contrast with deck boards.  And with balusters, lighting, and post cap options, the design possibilities are endless.

Be sure to rim your outdoor space with beautiful railings to provide structurally safe perimeters with loads of style.
