7 Reasons Why Aluminum Deck Rail Is The Best Deck Railing Choice

How important is it to make the best deck railing choice when planning your aluminum deck project?

Most people, when preparing to build their dream deck, do a lot of research. They consider a plethora of deck ideas – including decking materials and deck systems – and even spend time looking at various deck designs. Then, they make their decision and get started on their deck plans.

Often, however, that is just phase one. The next step is considering deck railing.

Of course, it’s not rare to have a deck without railing. However, that’s only possible if your deck is ground-level. If you plan to have an elevated deck, deck rail will be a “must” for your project.

When contemplating the best deck railing choice, each deck rail option has its pros and cons.

At Wahoo Decks, we manufacturer aluminum deck railing. If you’ve never researched or thought about using aluminum deck rail before, it may seem like a somewhat unusual idea. Yet, when you learn about the benefits, you might see it’s the top deck railing choice.

Here are 7 reasons Wahoo Rail aluminum deck railing is the obvious deck railing choice:

1. Aluminum deck rail is long-lasting and strong

We use the finest available aluminum for our deck railing systems. What this means to you is that it’s very sturdy and durable. It doesn’t rust like traditional metal deck railing either.

2. Wahoo Rail aluminum deck railing is intelligently engineered

Our deck railing is specifically designed by experienced engineers to ensure it starts out with stellar performance and beauty and maintains that reliability and appeal over time.

Furthermore, while it’s the perfect complement to our Wahoo aluminum decking, it’s also architected and produced so that it can be an add-on to any decking surface desired.

3. Aluminum deck railing is a low-maintenance railing

Traditional deck rail materials – like wood, composites, or steel – need frequent upkeep to remain looking good and standing strong. This is not the case with aluminum deck rail. We powder-coat our railing so that it won’t crack, chip, warp, peel, or need re-painting. All you need do is hose it down to clean it off.

4. Aluminum deck rail options are aesthetically-pleasing

The clean lines of our aluminum deck railing make it a very attractive option and the perfect complement to nearly any deck design. Wahoo Rail comes in three different neutral shades – White, Antique Bronze, and Mocha – to match a variety of different color schemes.

Additionally, Wahoo Glass Rail takes the very best of our aluminum railing and pairs it with tempered glass panels – either Clear or “Twilight” (tinted) – for a deck railing design look that is out of this world. Using Wahoo Glass deck railing means nothing obstructs your view or gets in the way of your ability to enjoy the full beauty of your outdoor deck scenery.

5. Our aluminum deck railing offers a great degree of customization for functionality too

Another highlight of our aluminum deck railing – that can also be traced back to its design and engineering – is its ease-of-use in achieving a myriad of deck designs. Wahoo Rail can be utilized and configured in nearly any linear-based shape you can conceive of, allowing for the creation of truly customized deck.

6. It’s eco-friendly…

Our deck railing systems at Wahoo consists of 50% recycled aluminum. This means it’s environmentally-friendly—much more so than most other decking choices. Combine that with the fact that Wahoo Rail requires no harsh chemicals for cleaning or upkeep, and you can rest easy knowing your deck railing is a socially responsible, “green” choice too!

7. Aluminum railing is an economically-smart choice

Aluminum deck railing is affordable and even more so when you consider savings over time. Off-the-bat aluminum rail is often on-par with the pricing of other deck rail options. Yet, because of its limited maintenance and extreme strength and durability, you don’t need to re-finish, re-do, or replace it like other deck rail choices.

It’s no doubt you have several options for your deck railing decision—many of them in fact. However, you’d be hard-pressed to find another deck rail choice that delivers ALL the same benefits and features of Wahoo Rail – or Wahoo Glass Rail – in a single deck rail system. Not to mention, the Wahoo name and reputation stand behind every railing. With Wahoo aluminum railing, you not only get a deck you are proud of for many years to come but that you will also enjoy season after season, without tons of effort and upkeep.
