Installing A New Deck? Why You Should Choose Vertical Cable Railing

If you are installing a new deck at your home, you have many options to choose from. One of these options is what to use for the railing. One type of railing you should consider is vertical cable railing. This offers you many benefits, four of which are listed below.


One big benefit of vertical cable railings is they are safer when compared to horizontal railings. This is especially true if you have small children that play on your deck. Children can easily climb up a horizontal railing and then fall over the side of the deck. With a vertical railing, they will not be able to do this because they would not have any kind of foothold while trying to climb up the deck. This is also true if you have pets that will be on the deck. Pets can also climb up a horizontal railing and fall off the deck. 

Better View

You can see through vertical railings much easier than you can other types of railings. This is especially beneficial if you have beautiful scenery in your yard that you would like to see while outside. You can then sit and relax on a chair or other deck furniture while enjoying the beautiful views.  Also, if you have children that play in the backyard you can see them much easier with vertical railings. 

Offers Ventilation

Choosing vertical cable railing offers you much more ventilation than if you choose solid siding, such as glass or wood for your deck. Because cable railing is open, air can get through it much easier. This is especially beneficial on hot days when you need more ventilation to stay cool. 

Low Maintenance

Vertical cable railings are much easier to maintain than other types of decks. For example, if you have a glass deck, you have to keep the glass clean constantly. You have to clean not only the inside but also the outside of the glass. If you have a wood siding deck, the wood must be maintained and sealed to prevent termites. It can take a lot of time to apply a wood sealer. With vertical cable railings, they are completely open so there is not nearly as much to clean.
