If summer’s approach has you thinking it’s time to remodel a deck, you might be looking for a cost-effective, high-impact way to do it. Taking your deck’s railings to the next level could be your solution.
Deck railing is more than just a safety feature to keep guests and kids from a nasty fall. It can also make a powerful design statement. Railing kits can make it easy to upgrade your deck with a whole new look.
Consider these railing upgrades:
You have more choices and alternatives than ever when it comes to spicing up deck balusters. Aluminum balusters allow you to introduce curves, angles and interest into your deck design. They’re available in Classic, Colonial, Architectural, Estate and Traditional designs from Deckorators.
Deckorators also offers Scenic Glass Balusters. The clear, unobstructed view afforded by glass can make a deck seem more spacious. Deckorators sells them in two shapes: Frontier, which is straight with a beveled edge, and Contour, a graceful hourglass-shaped design.
One of the easiest ways to add interest to deck railings is with ornamental post caps. Installing them can be as simple as applying glue to the top of the post and putting the cap in place. They’re a great way to dress up a railing without completely replacing it.
Ornamental post caps come in glass, metal, wood and planter styles. Solar post caps add another layer of interest by providing good looks and gentle illumination at night. They’re available in glass and metal styles.
Aluminum deck railing
If you’re slightly more ambitious and want a railing that combines good looks with durability, consider replacing wooden railing with aluminum deck railing. You’ll have a wealth of colors and design options to choose from, and the added satisfaction of knowing you’re enhancing your deck with a railing that will last years longer than a wooden one would. An added bonus – Deckorators code approved aluminum deck railing kit is compatible with all their decorative baluster styles, so your design options are limited only by your imagination.
Thanks to innovative railing options, it’s easier than ever to do a deck remodel. Your hardest task might be deciding just which great look to choose!
