The railing is an essential part of any decking design. However, its necessity doesn’t mean it can’t act as a means of enhancing the overall aesthetics of the decking space.

Some great aspects your Deck Repair and construction contractors can integrate with the railing include:

Cable Deck Railing

Cable deck railing is an excellent solution to traditional balusters. Installing this alternative across the railing can enhance aesthetics when done properly, and provides less of a sight-hindrance compared to bulky banisters, allowing individuals to enjoy the view. Most contractors recommend type 316 stainless steel for this fixture.

Bench Railing

Bench railing allows you to kill two birds with one stone. Contractors simply need to include an additional support system to support the bench as it contours itself across the rails. It should be noted that it’s essential to include a bench within a railing design that meets all codes, including height (at least 36” from the floor to the top of the railing).

Recessed Lighting

Light fixtures can play a significant role in enhancing ambiance and aesthetics. Recessed lighting has grown in popularity in the last few years, with lights fixed onto the sides of the guardrails or into the balusters for a more elegant touch.
