Everything You Should Know About Aluminum Deck Railing

News & Media

DekPro Prestige Rod Rail

Professional-quality decks demand professional-grade products. That’s why The Deck Supply is proud to provide the same great supplies to discerning DIYers and accomplished contractors alike. To build your ideal deck railing, we carry great options that use only the highest-quality materials. Our dexperts recommend aluminum deck railing for truly professional looks and unmatched durability. To fully understand this amazing material and our top products, The Deck Supply shares what every customer should know about our most popular railing option.

The Miracle Metal

When you think of aluminum, what comes to mind? From soda cans and shell casings to truck beds and space shuttle parts, aluminum is one of the most versatile metals in the world today. Once more expensive than gold, this metal is made possible by over a century of research and development from scientists around the world. Aluminum deck railing is just one more innovation in the long history of this amazing metal. Here are the main reasons our dexperts prefer this material over others.

Heavy-duty doesn’t have to mean heavy! Aluminum deck railing is one of the lightest materials available for decks. In addition to making the installation less labor-intensive, this material lowers shipping costs. This often offsets the initial cost of this railing compared to other metal railing options.

Corrosion Resistance

The main reason for the popularity of aluminum is its corrosion-resistant properties. Because it doesn’t need the replacement or maintenance of other metals, aluminum is one of the most widely used materials in skyscrapers, park slides, and, yes, deck railings. To further protect your investment, the brands we trust utilize specialized coatings to protect aluminum deck railing against whatever Mother Nature has in store.

Our Trusted Brands

When we say decking is all we do, we mean it! At The Deck Supply, we only trust brands that provide our customers with the highest-quality products possible. Our dexperts grade every product we source on aesthetics, value, and customer reception. By providing durable, beautiful, valuable solutions, The Deck Supply ensures every customer can enjoy their great outdoors in style and comfort.
