Deck railings have evolved over the recent years. There are a variety of different systems that work to fit with any deck style. Since deck railings are so visible it is important to pick a railing style that compliments your decks color scheme, building materials, even your house or place of business.
Types of deck railings
Many railings are built with metals or composite materials. Those railings are popular because they require low maintenance. Glass railings are becoming increasingly popular because it gives the homeowner a great view of the surrounding area and have a modern feel. However, they tend to be more expensive and typically require more maintenance to keep the glass clean.
Price ranges for deck railings can very from $15 per linear foot for traditional treated wood railings to $125 per linear foot for a custom glass railing system.
This is often a more cost effective way to add styling to a deck. They usually come in a variety of styles including round, flat, baroque, and square.
Cable and Glass Railings
