Creative Living Choosing the best railing design for your Decks Virginia Beach can make a huge difference in its overall appearance. You can take your deck from ordinary to spectacular by making the best choice here. Rails have an obvious and necessary function – keeping people from falling off your deck – but rails also serve an important aesthetic role. Make your deck pop with the right railing. But first… Call Creative Living Deck Contractor Virginia Beach.
Do you really need deck railing?
If your deck is low to the ground, railing may not be necessary. Jurisdictions vary, but if your Deck Virginia Beach is less than about 30 inches from the ground, railing may not be required by your local building code. As always, check the building code in your area before deciding. Now, just because you can build a deck without railing, that doesn’t mean you should build your deck without it. Deck Contractor Virginia Beach .Think about who is likely to be using your Deck Virginia Beach . A 2 year old or a 92 year old could be significantly injured falling off of a 30 inch high deck. For that matter, a 22 year old could get hurt, they just heal faster. (at least that’s what I recall – its been a while you know) Anyway, consider who your guests will be and plan accordingly. If your deck is near the upper end of the requirement range, strongly consider adding railing. Deck Contractor Virginia Beach If your deck will be near the lower end of the range, you may be fine without any railing.
Decks Virginia Beach
There are other ways to compensate for no railing if you decide to go without it. You can strategically place items around the Decks Virginia Beach to serve as a substitute railing. Plants,furniture, grills, barbed wire…Okay, maybe not the barbed wire, (I was just checking to see if you were paying attention) but you get the idea. Built in benches and planters can serve as a more permanent barrier. Wide stairs are another option for those in between applications.

As you will see, railings can enhance and beautify your Decks Virginia Beach as well as provide the necessary safety requirements. But those same railings can interfere with your view from your deck. The trick is to balance those three considerations: safety – beauty – view. And, as always – budget.
