Do Deck Railings Have to Be Fascia-Mounted Due to Code?

Whether you are a homeowner, a builder, or a contractor, it is essential to understand building codes. When it comes to deck railings, you have to install a fascia-mounted system if the deck is new. However, if you are replacing an existing railing, you can use a deck mount railing system.

Can You Use Deck Mount Railing with Vinyl Decking?

We do not advise using deck mounting for your railing when opting for vinyl. The reason is simple: You will end up puncturing the vinyl deck when you fasten it. You can opt for this sort of mounting, but we recommend caulking the holes to avoid moisture penetration.

Can I Use Picket, Glass, Or Topless on One Deck?

The world is your oyster when it comes to building your deck railing. That means you can mix and match your heart’s content. As long as they work well together, they’ll look great. Our customers often opt for picket railings on the sides of their deck and a glass railing on the front for aesthetic purposes. We can help you select the best option for your deck.

Can I Purchase the Posts and Install the Deck Railing Myself?

You certainly can. But we are also noted for our skill as installers. If you do not want to risk doing the job incorrectly, or you do not have the time to work on the project yourself, we can come to your property and take care of the installation ourselves. Our team is skilled at doing so quickly so you can get back to enjoying your deck.

What Kind of Railing Is Best for A Deck or Patio?

For the most part, it depends entirely on your tastes and desires. We can help you select your railing, though.
