Aluminum is a chemical element that is considered in the same group as boron. Aluminum is frequently represented by its periodic table abbreviation of AL. Aluminum is a silvery-white metal that is soft, nonmagnetic and a ductile metal. By mass, aluminum is estimated to be the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon and the most abundant metal on the planet. Aluminum is a metal that maintains its strength even in extreme reducing environments. Aluminum is popular for construction and especially for railings because of its durability, longevity and relatively light weight. Aluminum railings have a remarkably low density making it light in comparison to other metal railings and is also resilient to corrosion and elements of the natural outdoor environment.

Aluminum as an element has numerous properties that make it the ideal choice for railings. Aluminum railings are corrosion resistant, are stronger than comparable metals, and light weight. Painted or colored aluminum railings are often considered superior to other railing materials including PVC since they have little to no maintenance costs and will almost definitely last longer than the structure they are installed on.
Aluminum is frequently used for places where durability and strength are important. Aluminum is a popular material for aircraft’s, space shuttles, vehicles, wall systems etc.. In comparison to plastic, wood or composite railing alternatives aluminum will out last and out perform other railing products. The advantages of aluminum railings include; low maintenance, safety, esthetics, can be recycled, resistant to corrosion, favorable contraction/expansion, and durable through changing the weather.
Just because aluminum railings are considered “low maintenance” does not mean aluminum railings require no maintenance. Generally maintaining Aluminum Railings is relatively simple and quick to do. Maintaining Aluminum Railings helps to keep the railings aesthetics and durability for years to come. Aluminum railings require minimal care and maintenance when compared to other railing systems. It is generally recommended that a homeowner inspects and cleans the railings at least once or twice a year in spring and fall. If aluminum railings are near swimming pools they should be checked and cleaned more regularly.
Aluminum railings are becoming an increasingly more popular outdoor railing option, and are one of the leading alternatives for exterior railings.

“We are very pleased with the work Mountain View Sun Decks did for us. They were on time, efficient and did an excellent job. We highly recommend them for any deck/railing work!"
"Our glass house in the sky" These fellows managed to build our sun room onto a second floor balcony straight up from the outside...The project was finished on time and on budget, despite all the wet weather. Bravo, Mountain View Sun Decks!
Hi Steven, Happy Friday!!!! Just wanted to say hi and that I love my deck. The guys finished up Wednesday evening. I haven't had time to really enjoy my deck yet but hopefully this weekend I will. Thanks again for all your patience and help with getting this completed and to what I was looking for. I have all of July and August to enjoy my deck now and hopefully September. Have a wonderful weekend. April
Rebuilt the deck at the back of the house;because of cost we kept the same footprint as the previous deck;workmanship was excellent, the deck flooring is exceptional, almost like the extension of the inside flooring, loved the enclosed stairwell and the changes to the railing; very clean exit after job was complete, no delays in getting the work done;very pleased; in hindsight we should have spent the extra money for a tiered deck that we had in mind.
Our experience with the company and its employees, for the most part, has been excellent. The deck was enlarged and updated with dura deck vinyl covering, aluminium powder coated rails and lightly tinted glass over ten years ago, and it still looks great. Additional upgraded railings, opaque glass and a gate were later added. From the initial meeting with the sales representative to the completion of the project, the costs were on budget and on time. The quality of workmanship performed and professionalism of their employees can be considered first rate. The best part of having a Mountain View Sun Deck is not having to do any maintenance, just sit back and enjoy.
We had our old deck replaced. Complete removal and new installation. The work was performed during the winter and completed on time and budget to our complete satisfaction.
They came and put down my deck in record time. Looks beautiful. It was a difficult job because of a previous contractor had failed. They turned things around and left us very happy.
I hired Ewald and his team to replace a old wrought iron circular staircase off my desk with a traditional set of stairs in all aluminum. They were excellent to work with and I'd do business with them again anytime. Very professional, humble, creative, extremely detail orientated and excellent customer service from everyone. Price was fair and nothing negative to suggest about the product or service. Highly recommended!
Great staff, great owner, great service....could not be happier with my custom deck they built for me in 2015 and the issues they caught and fixed during the build. A great company and team....I would highly recommend. No corners cut....just quality product and service. Rod C.
Mountain View Sundecks installed an exterior staircase from out upper deck to the ground on our house. We were very pleased with this install. They were very responsive, met our schedule and came in at the price they quoted. I highly recommend them.
