Aluminum Railings for Decks

Beautify Your Decks with Aluminum Railings

If you have a deck, then you should also have outdoor railings.

Decks are common features on houses, cottages, and vacation homes of all kinds. In fact, decks are considered among the top things buyers look for when looking at properties. Decks are raised, elevated platforms attached to the house, allowing people to simply step outside and sit, barbecue, or relax while enjoying the outdoors.

However, decks have more than just a functional value. A good deck increases the aesthetic of your home by adding style and beauty to your house. Central to the look of your deck are exterior railings, which provide much of the appearance of your deck. A deck without railings is just a flat surface, which can look drab, boring, and unsightly (and is also unsafe). With the simple addition of the right railings, you can transform the look of your deck and even your home.

Aluminum Deck Railings

When constructing a deck, the first step is to build the platform and supports. This is often done using composite lumber, treated lumber, or aluminum. Once you have selected decking boards, the next things to consider are your railings. There are many options available, including wood, metal, and vinyl. However, one of the best options, from both a functional and aesthetic perspective, is aluminum railings.

CPL Aluminum Railings & Glass specializes in manufacturing and designing powder-coated aluminum railings. Aluminum railings offer distinct advantages over wood, metal, and vinyl railings, particularly for beautifying your property.

Aluminum railings have many perks for your deck, one of which is the fact that they are the easiest railings to install and maintain. Not only can aluminum railings be easily installed by a few crew members in a matter of days, but they are maintenance-free and require no regular upkeep. While wood railings require regular refinishing and repainting, and metal railings need repairs due to corrosion and rust, good aluminum railings only have to be cleaned every so often. Otherwise, they require no maintenance. You can expect to save a lot of time and money by using aluminum.

Yet, it’s the design benefits of aluminum railings that make them such great options for decks. Quality aluminum railings come in a variety of designs, styles, and looks. Clean straight lines can be used for sleek, modern designs, while decorative balusters and embedded orbs can add a luxurious flourish to a deck. Powder-coated aluminum can come in any desired colour, and it always retains a sharp, new-looking appearance.

What’s great about aluminum railings is that they can be customized and individualized to add beauty to any type of property. For instance, aluminum railings can be designed to look like lamb’s tongue wrought iron railings, providing true elegance to your deck. With more options for custom design, homeowners can truly take control of the look of their house exterior using aluminum railings.

For homeowners, it’s also important to consider not just how your deck looks but how your surroundings will look from your deck. Of course, one of the most important parts of your deck is the view.

If you want to capture unobstructed views, then glass railings are a premier option that can retain panoramic views.
