Deck Railings For Elegance And for Safety

Deck Railings are a must-have accessory.

The deck and railings complement each other. A deck without a railing is dangerous and can violate building codes. If you don’t obey the deck railing codes, you risk being harassed unnecessarily by many people, particularly in our litigious society. So why take risks when you can instal the deck railings yourself? We have a habit of having a lower deck railing height than the building code needs. This must not be permitted.

Decks and railings are regulated by a set of rules.

Building codes vary by state, but most accept that if you have a deck that is more than 3 feet from the next horizontal surface, you must have a fall safety device. A wall (not necessarily brick and mortar; it may be a wooden or PVC wall) is also suitable, but it is usually avoided because it is expensive, blocks the view, is heavier for the same length, and does not provide much more protection than the deck railing.

Deck Railings Come in a Variety of Styles

The key reason for installing deck railings is for protection, but the beauty they offer adds to the building’s aesthetic appeal. Multicolored railings may also be used to give the structure a unique look. Aluminum, PVC, wood, or even a mixture of all three materials are available, but the latter is seldom used.
