Deck railings aren’t just about safety – they’re also an important visual element of your Annandale, Sterling, or Arlington deck. The type of deck railing you choose has a huge affect on the overall appearance of your deck. There are many different deck railing options that not only provide safety, but also complement your deck design and landscape, as well as accommodate your budget.
When picking a deck railing style, decide what type of material you want your railings to be and consider the maintenance involved with that material. Take into account how to connect the balusters or main railing posts to your deck for optimum aesthetic effect. Deck railings come in many shapes and lines, as they can be straight, twisted, or angled.
Many Northern Virginia homeowners opt for wood or composite deck railings. Custom wood deck railings come in any shape or size you can imagine, while composite deck railings are generally made from PVC, vinyl, or a resin composite of recycled materials. Composite railings are relatively maintenance free and come in a wide range of colors and textures. Unlike wood railings, composite railings do not have to be re-stained.
For a more modern twist, consider glass panels to serve as your deck railings. Glass panels are attached to the posts and allow those on your deck to enjoy a full view of your landscape. Metal deck railings, including wrought iron, steel, and aluminum provide a sense of strength and security to your deck, while still allowing an ample view of your landscape.
