Screen Shot 2018 03 07 at 10.50.53 AMNow that winter is on its way out the door, this is a good time to think about preparing for summer. For some, that means visions of BBQ grills and backyard pools. For others, it means beautiful decks and porches to spend endless summer nights on. If this sounds like you, check out how these unique railing ideas can add some flair to your outdoor sanctuary.

Thinking about railings for a deck or porch may be a non-issue for some homeowners. Instead, they worry about stain colors or board layouts. However, the railings are what bring the entire project and design together. The professionals at Fischer Lumber recommend aluminum railing to enhance your home’s deck or porch and here’s why:

Aluminum is both strong and classy which makes it the most ideal railing material. It is a high-quality product that is versatile, stylish, and comes in a number of custom designs to suit anyone’s taste. The numerous style options available is what makes aluminum so ideal for many homeowners. You can select railings that are traditional or something more modern - whichever peaks your interest. By choosing this aluminum for your railings, you’ll be sure to give your deck or porch the most elegant finish.

Think about having a wood railing. Can you focus on the maintenance it would require? Dealing with rotting, warping, and splitting does not sound like something most homeowners want to worry about. With aluminum railing, all upkeep worries disappear as it is virtually maintenance-free. This long-lasting material can stand up to the harshest weather. Hail, wind, snow or ice? No problem. Not even the best wood products can sustain these hurdles. After just one season, wood can start to show dramatic wear and tear. Oh, and did we mention that aluminum even resists rust and corrosion? It doesn’t get any better than this! Think long-term; put your money into aluminum railing - it will stay beautiful for years.

Convenience is key. No one wants to spend days, even weeks waiting for wood installations, staining, waiting, then staining some more. Once aluminum railings are installed, the work is done. You can spend your summer enjoying the space and not having to worry about anything else. And speaking of installation, it’s a breeze and doesn’t require much time or any special tools. Your finished railings will be quality products that were installed in half as much time as wood.
