Homeowners Are Falling For Custom Deck Railings In Toronto


When considering deck projects in Toronto, most homeowners are looking to maximize their outdoor living space. Thoughts turn to decadent food preparation, mood-lit dining, and sun-drenched lounging first before turning their thoughts to keeping all that safe and sound on the deck.

The height of your deck will determine if a deck railing is required as well as the height of railing. Then it’s time to consider the custom deck railing that will perfectly suit your deck and backyard oasis. Backing up your chair from the table, adjusting your lounge chair with the sun or rolling your barbecue over just a bit could result in a mishap, if not for a railing protecting you.

A deck builder will be able to provide a plethora of options with regards to building materials and an abundance of styles to choose from. Standard or custom, your deck railing will become not just a safety feature but a stylish and complimentary accessory.

Deck Railing Maintenance

The first question in considering your deck railing options is how much maintenance will be required. The beauty of wood, as with all natural beauty, fades and weathers over time and needs on-going maintenance. Having said that, most homeowners have very busy lives and would much rather invest their time relaxing with family and friends then stripping and staining every individual wood picket.

Low maintenance may include natural wood posts and rails with aluminum spindles or glass panels. No maintenance would be any mix of aluminum, stainless steel cable, glass or an enhanced version of iron railings. And with so many options of colors and materials to choose from, you’re sure to find one perfectly suited to your deck project.

Deck Railing Materials

Many homeowners love the look of iron railings. Its classic appearance has always been synonymous with a lifetime of strength and durability. Nowadays, the look of iron can be used for your deck railing but with the added feature of being completely maintenance free. You choose your color of textured finishes like gloss black, black sand or antique bronze. And select from numerous custom accents like panels, ornaments, scrolls, brackets and post caps, to name a few.


Cable railings are an interesting twist and provide a reasonably clear view through to your backyard and beyond. The cable railings are made of stainless steel and suspended between aluminum railing posts and handrails. You choose the color of aluminum that best suits your deck design.

Glass railings are actually glass panels also suspended between aluminum railing posts and handrails. They are popular deck railing choice with homeowners in Toronto as they provide the optimum clear view to the entire backyard oasis. Whether you’re watching the children swim in the pool or watching your beautiful gardens grow, a glass will give the feeling of no railing at all. With glass railings, however, like any solid piece of material, it’s important to consider airflow and heat. Glass panels are also available in smaller panel sections and tinted glass just like your sunglasses.

Aluminum railings are a great choice as they are strong, maintenance free, available in different colors, and 100% recyclable.

Deck Building

We Build All Year Round

The most important part of any deck project is finding the right builder to do the work. Our builders have the right set of skills, our designers share your vision, and we always can adjust project according your price range

Deck Foundation

Helical Piles - Every good thing begins with a good foundation, and your deck is no different. Strength and stability is an important thing to build upon, and that’s why we like to build our decks upon something called Helical Piles. Often known as Screw Piles, Helical Piles are quickly becoming the most efficient and cost effective way to provide your project with a safe and sturdy foundation.

Deck Framing

Metal Framing - Once you have your post properly anchored and standing strong, it’s time for phase two: framing. Available in both metal and traditional pressure treated lumber, framing is the skeleton that supports you decking for the duration of its life.


Low Maintenance Materials - After your foundation is set and your framing secure, it’s time for the main event of the building process: your decking of choice. This can take on many forms, from traditional pressure treated to synthetic materials (composite/pvc), but is always accompanied by one constant; experienced and skilled build teams.

Deck Accents/Details

Having a new deck is great, but what really turns you backyard space from renovation to staycation are the character pieces and accents that you choose. Things such as custom pergolas, privacy screens, shading options and custom metal artwork can go a long way in turning your outdoor space into a retreat; and we all want the kind of yard that will leave our neighbors and friends jealous and talking.
