Whatever your ideas for deck railing installation are, there are certain peculiarities to consider.
Posts are the main supportive parts of a deck railing, so don’t hesitate to put another middle post if your deck is too wide.Our experts at Art Metal Workshop recommend not to place them farther than 60-70”. If you do, the railings may sag or even break if the material isn’t of the best quality or if the pressure is too strong.
Posts usually consist of:
There’s a wide variety of materials to choose:
While choosing the variant that suits you best, make sure to include all aforementioned points. Mind the regulations, as they were made to ensure your safety. Choose the right sized for railings and don’t hesitate to install more posts. Also choose the most appropriate material, and even if you choose metal or glass, our specialists are ready to implement your idea!
When choosing the right railings for their homes, these are the four major considerations that homeowners should be looking into — safety, quality, style, and price.
It seemed easy to have all these factors together, however, more often than not, you find yourself sacrificing some of the things in your wish list. Sometimes, you go for the more expensive option in exchange for great design and superb quality. In other times, you choose the less durable and less intricately designed to pay for a cheaper price.
So, you’re wondering if it’s possible to enjoy all these? Is it possible to get everything you want all at once?
The answer is in the affirmative.
Here at ArtMetal, we make sure that you will have everything that you’re looking for — stylish and safe deck railings, made from quality and sturdy materials, at a price you can afford. Name it, we got it.
Whether you want to install deck railings in your office, home, or business, we will make sure that it’s safe for your employees, family, and clients.
With the designs and durable materials we use as raw materials, safety will never be compromised.
Posts support the deck railing so by adding columns in the middle of the wide deck, we can ensure safety and balance. Here at Art Metal, an approximate distance of 60 to 70 inches is the safest distance to install your deck railing posts. Otherwise, your railings will break or will drop.
The deck railing post is usually made up of the following:
The railings will serve as support that would keep one from falling. However, it will only truly serve its purpose if the materials used to support the construction are sturdy and can withstand weight, pressure, as well as the extreme weather conditions.
There’s an extensive list of materials to pick from. Our balustrades can be tailored to fit your specifications and are made with the following materials:
Here at Art Metal, we commit to meet your expectations, if not surpass it. We take pride in being dubbed as the best railing contractor in Toronto by our most valued clients. Our Team of experts will make sure that your decks are not only safe but also durable and sleek.
Aside from the aforementioned materials, we can also use other raw materials such as composite. This is a mix of plastic and wood sawdust and makes the railing maintenance-free and resilient to harsh weather conditions.
The only precaution with the use of composite is you have to take extra care of it since once broken, it cannot be repaired.
Another raw material we can work on is wood. This is a conventional choice for decks and railings alike.
You can also specify what kind of wood you want to use. From redwood to cedar, name it, we can have it specialized for you. The advantage of using this type of raw material for your railings is that it’s easily formed and adjusted to the shape of the railings and it holds up really well.
We can also customize resilient and aesthetically pleasant deck railings made of steel, iron, and other metals. This is our field of expertise. The designs we can come up with and work on are only limited by your imagination since metals are really flexible. Our team of skilled individuals are always ready to deliver and are likewise present even after sales. You know that we take this business very seriously.
Lastly, we can also use glass as our raw material for your deck railings. Glass looks effortlessly classy and stylish so there’s need for elaborate and intricate carvings to make your deck railings stand out. Tempered glass is a very exciting material to work with. You can add frames to give it a more polish look. If you want to maintain a sleek and modern look, go for the frameless railing style.
Glass will also give you an unobstructed view of the horizon when you’re lounging on your deck.

If given a chance to choose between something pricey and something cheap, most people go for the cheaper alternative. If quality and style are not part of the equation, the price is the deal maker for some.
This mentality often leads to the mindset of cheap is the remedy when you want to save.
This should not be the case though because if you only know where to look, you can find an option which stands between pricey and cheap — a reasonable price.
Reasonable in a sense that you know you get what you deserve with the amount that you paid. Your money has more value since you paid for safety, aesthetics, and durability.
When it comes to your family, your employees, and your clients’ safety, never settle for the “okay” option, no matter how lucrative the cheap price tag is.
The truth of the matter is the cheaper ones are just a temporary remedy. They are like band-aid solutions to a pressing problem. They contribute more harm than an advantage in the long run.
Akin to the nature of a band-aid solution, it will only save you for a short while. You can truly save a few dollars from choosing the cheaper alternative but once wear and tear sets in, or harsh weather conditions will do their part, as well as aging and frequency of use, you will realize that the downsides outweigh the money you initially saved.
