Deck Railing Systems in Baltimore, Maryland and the Surrounding Areas

Installing custom deck handrails throughout the Ellicott City, Annapolis, Columbia, and Baltimore, MD areas.

Over the past several years, deck manufacturers and builders have created a variety of attractive and useful rail systems. Beyond just the boards on the deck itself, rails are one of the most pronounced and visible features on your deck. Because of this, it’s important that you not only choose a deck for its safety features, but you also choose one that complements your house, your landscape, and the overall aesthetics of your yard.

Deck Design & Installation in Maryland

While there are many different railing system materials available, at Diamond Decks, we typically install railing made from vinyl, aluminum, wood, or cable. Deck rails come in various materials, styles, and colors, as well as different accessories. Because of this, it’s a good idea to take your time when choosing the system that best suits your needs and personal tastes.

Whatever deck railing designs you choose, Diamond Decks can bring your vision to life. If you need helping choosing the right deck handrail for you, or if you are ready to get started, contact us online or by phone at (443) 688-6072 today!

Deck Railing Designs

Vinyl Railing

Anyone that has ever dealt with vinyl, in general, knows it’s a very low maintenance material. It’s easy to clean and keep clean, it’s non-porous which means that it won’t rot like traditional wood, and it comes in various colors. Vinyl railings can be made to match any decking, including wood and composite wood. They also have different spacers, caps, and designs available to build a deck that is as complex or simple as you like.

Metal Deck Railings

There are quite a few different metal railings available, but three of the most popular are aluminum, galvanized steel, and, of course, iron. One of the really great things about metal balusters is that these tend to have a slimmer look than that of wood, which is a great idea if you have a view that you still want to enjoy and don’t want a bunch of rails blocking your view. Balusters, posts, and finials can all be customized to give them their own special, unique look. This lets you not only choose a railing system you really love, but it allows you to match it up with certain architectural features or designs in your house or yard.

Wood Rail Systems

Wood is a really popular option when it comes to materials for deck railings because it is simple, yet flexible. If you want simple or something that is more unique, the experts at Diamond Decks can assist you in choosing either custom or pre-made pieces to get the perfect look you really want. The biggest and main downfall to having wood is that it will need to be regularly maintained—cleaning, painting, staining, etc.

Cable Railings

This look cannot be beaten! This is considered a more luxurious option, but it looks fantastic when staring into the landscape on the outskirts of the deck. Horizontal cables are usually connected using wooden posts. These posts usually have a modern or industrial look to them, which works nice with modern homes and designs.
