Deck & Porch Railings
Types of Railing
Features Of Railing
Rails / Handrails
Usually people select railing materials that match decking materials: wood rails with wood decks, composite rails with composite decks. Sometimes, though, a contrasting material provides an aesthetically pleasing experience, as does a contrasting color. As you plan the deck railing, consider how unobstructed a view you want, ease of maintenance, and what extra features – such as lighting or privacy lattice. That may increase your enjoyment of the deck. Remember to comply with applicable building codes. For safety reasons, these often specify the height and spacing of balusters. HOA codes can also limit railing materials and colors to conform to the neighborhood aesthetic.

Railings are the most visible aspect of a deck as they are seen from the deck proper, from the yard, and often from a home’s interior.
