Types of Deck railings
Creating the perfect outdoor space for your home can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to deciding what type of railing to use for your deck. There are many different materials available in the market today, each of them offering unique benefits and drawbacks. We will look at three of the most popular types of deck railings: treated wood railings, aluminum railings, and glass railings
Treated wood Railings
Treated wood railings are a great choice for homeowners looking to add a unique, natural style to their outdoor decks and patios. These attractive railings can provide safety for your family as well as an inviting aesthetic look while saving on costs. It is recommended to maintain treated wood railings every year as exposure to the sun can cause them to dry, twist and crack. If you are looking to reduce the amount of maintenance needed we also offer treated wood railings with aluminum balusters.
Custom Aluminum Railings
Aluminum railings are increasingly becoming the preferred choice for homeowners looking for a low-maintenance, stylish railing option. Not only are aluminum railings incredibly durable and long-lasting, but they require very little maintenance to look brand new year after year. Unlike some other materials such as wood or steel, aluminum does not need to be stained or painted regularly so you can spend more time enjoying your outdoor living space instead of doing tedious maintenance tasks. Additionally, aluminum railings come in a variety of styles and colors to suit any home décor. Whether you prefer a sleek modern look or a traditional style, there is an aluminum railing design that will fit perfectly with your aesthetic. Aluminum railings also offer great value since they cost less than many other materials while still delivering superior durability and strength.
Our custom aluminum railings come in four different post sizes: 2″, 2.5″, 3″, and 4″.

Custom Glass Railings
Glass railings provide an upscale and modern look to any home or business. With their sleek design and transparent structure, these railings are designed to not take away from the beauty of your home, but rather enhance it. Not only do glass railings provide a visually appealing aesthetic, they also have many practical functions that make them a great addition to any building. Stronger than traditional wood or metal railings, glass is more durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions for many years without requiring maintenance or repair work. Glass railings also offer excellent visibility, providing unobstructed views of the surrounding area for homeowners. Ace of Decks offers several types of glass railings that fit into any design including: Frameless glass railings, Framed glass railings, and Framed glass railings without a handrail.
