Deck railings are more than just a matter of safety. For one, it gives deck support and handles during porch soirees.
They also enclose the area for some added privacy with family and friends and most interestingly, it gives a lot of visual value to the entire home depending on how you elevate that visual value. And speaking of that, here are some deck railing ideas that you can consider.
Having a heads-up on what deck railing ideas is very important because first off, they have to be compliant with the railing code. This code stipulates that homes with decks above 30 inches must have deck rails and it should be 36 inches above the deck surface. Other than this, you also have to decide about the material: will it be wood, metal, vinyl, a mix of one or two?
Usually, deck railing ideas include more than just deciding which material you will use. You need a comprehensive design about where the essential parts will go, how they will look like and of course the measurements. So what are these essential parts? Of course we have guard rails, the balusters, the rise, the tread and of course decorative ideas that will complete the project.
