Woods railings can be made to match the material of your wood deck, or compliment your maintenance free deck. Balusters can be matching wood, aluminum, cable, or glass. Wood, metal, or composite wrapped posts can be used with wood railings.
Aluminum or steel railings can be added to either type of deck. Metal railings are also considered low maintenance, which just require cleaning for upkeep. Post options for metal railings are matching metal or composite wrapped posts.
Composite railings are similar to low maintenance decking; they are made of similar material and only require cleaning. Metal posts, or matching composite posts can be paired with these railings to create a custom look.
Horizontal cable systems can be installed with metal posts for a modern, minimalist look. This system is capped with a wood or low maintenance top rail to tie it all together.
