Railings are a vital part of the deck structure.
They make it a safe place for the kids to play on and they keep pets and local wildlife off the deck too. The railings will make the deck look good and give some privacy to a family area. They even keep the adults from slipping off the deck, when enjoying the warm summer nights.
The quality of the deck railings should be a priority. You don’t want ones which are liable to break easily or which will rot during the winter months.
With this in mind, you should think about using vinyl fencing around the deck
The benefits of using vinyl fencing for the deck railings are:
- Vinyl lasts and lasts
