Handrail Installation

Your deck railing doesn’t have to be boring and ordinary…

Northwest Decks has solutions and partners to help bring out a unique style to your deck. We can help pick railings from wrought iron to glass by offering a large variety of styles, shades and solutions.

Northwest Decks works closely with Trex and other manufacturers to provide lifestyle-enhancing products to “accessorize” your deck and railing. Options from railing, balusters, post caps, post sleeves, lighting, lattice accessories and more. We have the experience and eye for creating your unique outdoor oasis.

An important feature of a deck’s design, the railing provides safetyprivacy and style. When choosing a railing for your deck, consider whether you want it to be a focal point of your outdoor living space or if you prefer a less conspicuous style that lets your home’s surrounding scenery stand out. Wood, metal or vinyl deck rails can add privacy and a decorative touch, while glass or cable rails offer a sleek, modern look that won’t obstruct any views. Woods suitable for railings include cedar, white oak, redwood and pressure-treated wood. You’ll also want to take maintenance into account when selecting a deck railing material; wood, for example, will require regular staining and sealing.

Before beginning any deck project, check local building codes for railing height and spacing requirements. A railing system is usually required for any deck or porch that is more than 30 inches above the ground and your railing must be at least 36 inches tall. There are also codes for open-rail systems and requirements for the spacing of vertical pillars or balusters.

Consider your home and family’s needs and wants for your outdoor space, and contact us here at Northwest Decks. We can help you look at your options and decide what will work best for your home!
