FAQs About Handrails
Deck handrails are a crucial component of any outdoor deck, providing safety and aesthetics for the structure. Whether you want to build a new deck or update the one you already have, understanding why handrails are necessary is essential. Keep reading to learn answers to some of the most common questions about deck handrails, including choosing the best type for you.
Why are deck handrails necessary?
Handrails give support and prevent you from falling off the deck, especially if it is elevated. Also, building codes typically mandate that decks over a certain height need handrails to comply with regulations.
What kinds of materials are used to make deck handrails?
Wood is a classic handrail choice because it looks natural and blends with the landscaping. However, we also offer aluminum, vinyl, and a mix of pressure treated and aluminum. Each material option provides durability. The one you choose depends on your home style and preference.
How do I pick the right style of handrail for my deck?
Choosing the right deck handrail style relies on what you like and how your deck is designed overall. Think about things like the architectural style of the deck and the surrounding landscape. We can create classic, modern, or rustic designs and more.
What kind of upkeep do deck handrails need?
Different materials have different maintenance needs. Wood handrails might need to be stained or sealed regularly to protect them from the weather, but metal and vinyl railings are usually low maintenance, only requiring soap and water to keep them clean. Our team can provide tips for maintenance to help you choose what type is best for you.
