This deck has a beautiful view of Vancouver, but faces onto a back alley. So we incorporated a cement board “hardi board” material into the lower two thirds, thus blocking out the alley. We then installed a clear glass railing in the upper third so that the clients can enjoy the view. These custom aluminum railings have a very durable powder coating on them and we used only stainless steel fasteners so that they will never rust. When considering a railing design its important to consider what the attributes and negatives are of your deck. We then enhance the positives and use some careful designing to detract from the negatives.
As you can see in the pictures the hardi boards (lower 2/3) section of these custom aluminum railings are color co-ordinated with the house siding. This makes the railings look like a part of the house and definitely add to the look of customizing of the deck. Not only does it become a conversation piece but it requires almost zero maintenance. When we took the picture the railings had been installed for two years and they look as good as the day we put them in.
These railings use a combination of cedar and aluminum giving them a sleek custom look with the benefit of low maintenance. They complement the cedar decking as well. We do railings in Vancouver, West Vancouver, North Vancouver and basically all of Greater Vancouver. Give us a call so we can help you with your design ideas for your new deck, whether your looking for standard aluminum railings or fully custom aluminum railings, we can help with all aspects of the design to fit your budget and custom aluminum railings design requirements.
