A traditionalists Dream. Wood has a time honored natural aesthetic. There are unlimited hand crafted options available. In its simplest form it has a very low initial cost. They WILL fade, stain, warp, twist, cup, splinter, and bend. It requires regular maintenance staining, sanding, and painting. It is a long and tedious process to stain all the spindles and surfaces. In fact it often takes far longer to stain the railings on a deck than the deck itself.
By combining the low maintenance of aluminum spindles with traditional wood you can create a budget friendly modern look. We buy in bulk and pass on the savings to you. With the addition of baskets, collars, and center pieces you can really create your own unique modern design. With the addition of graspable aluminum rails to steps you can rest easy with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. We have the complete line of metal spindles in an array of colors.
When taking a look at your project’s budget, it’s worth considering how much time is involved in installation. Wood railing needs to be cut and assembled. Black aluminum spindles take significantly longer, special tools, and connectors, and increased accuracy on stairs all take special attention. Some of the better rails have no exposed fasteners for a clean sleek look. Rail kits that are well designed save installation time, but care has to be taken to make sure they are laid out and installed right the first time. Mistakes can be very costly, and the learning curve especially when it comes to stairs is long. That is why it is so important to have a contractor experienced in Decks, and in Kentucky no one has more experience than us!
The cost of maintaining and replacing some railing products can really add up. Over time, things like power washing, water seal, stain and weekend-killing chores mean alot of money (and time) wasted. Consider a more durable option thats engineered to withstand the elements. While the initial cost of high-performance composite or aluminum railing may seem a little steep at first glance, they’ll end up saving you money in the long run. After all the rail is the part of the deck that you feel the most and requires the most amount of time to maintain.
Enjoying the great outdoors is even better when you know that you are doing your part to protect it, and there are many sustainable railing options out there. While aluminum is a 100% recyclable material, composite takes it a step further. Comprised of recycled materials such as sawdust and plastic packaging, composite offers the look of wood without contributing to deforestation.
Return on Investment
Adding quality railing to your deck enhanced the overall feel of your outdoor space, adds value and joy to your home and ultimately makes it more attractive to potential homebuyes. So when you consider what you’re ready to invest in this feature-the frame of your outdoor space- it’s wise to consider your choices from a safety, aesthetic and long-term performance perspective. After all your home is most likely your biggest investment. While you spend money on a car, you invest money in property. Many times a little more upfront yields a far better long term return!
