If you are installing a deck in the future, are starting the planning process, or even are in the middle of installation, you are probably overwhelmed with the process. We know it can be a lot to handle and take in especially if you have never gone through the process before. Between budgeting, HOAs, materials, suppliers, labor, and then installation, it’s a lot of moving parts and things can get forgotten easily. When you look at inspiration pictures of decks you see how beautiful and complete it looks, you don’t think about all the small details. You need to think about the deck itself, the railing, the post caps, fasteners, framing, and lattice to cover the underneath. All these things and more are components that go into making a deck look like your inspiration picture.
Think about how incomplete your deck might look without a railing, this is probably one of the most important aspects of completing your deck. Here at RMFP, we offer multiple different styles of railing from different brands that offer glass styles, aluminum, metal, and cable railing.
