A porch is the opening of the house – it is that part of the house that draws the attention of all the people who come to visit. Handrails ensure the safety of movement on the porch. As a good support, they help avoid falls when the porch can be slippery. Without them, it looks uncomfortable and unsafe. In addition, the railing (for example metal or wooden railing) also performs a decorative function, supporting the overall style of the structure, and making the porch design complete. Now there are a lot of ideas for front porch railings available in the market. Made of wood, metal, stone or synthetic materials, porch handrail can become a real decoration of the house, making the yard more cozy and welcoming.

· the design of the covered area;
· the expected load on the deck railing;
· the cost.
