Decks are perfect for spending time outdoors. Without the proper outdoor railing systems, decks can become dangerous. Outdoor railings for your deck are required for any deck space that is more than 24 inches above the ground or 1.2 metres from a highly sloped ground.
Deck and staircase railings are not only major benefits of your deck aesthetics but help keep your deck safe from falls. Railings can be made from a number of materials. Outdoor deck railings are key to getting the most from your deck space.
Your outdoor deck and staircase railings needs to be perfect for your deck’s appearance and function. You can trust the experts at Mountain View Sun Decks with your outdoor deck railing needs.
Aluminum is made from a blend of natural compounds and is commonly found in soil with other materials such as sulphur, silicon, and oxygen. Aluminum outdoor railings are more durable than wood or iron, they require less maintenance and repairs and can stand against the hottest and coldest Albertan temperatures. Aluminum is resistant to any types of corrosion and can last for upwards of 20 years without major repair requirements.
Glass railings can be upscale, inviting and fully customised to meet your specific needs. Glass railings are commonly made from panels that are braced with aluminum balusters and can have a top bar. Topless glass railings can be more modern and can be more effective in showcasing the beautiful views from your deck. Tinted or frosted glass can be used to increase the privacy on your deck. Tall glass can be used to effectively block the wind for properties that back onto highly exposed areas.
Falls from more than 12 metres will almost certainly be fatal, though any fall higher than a foot or two can cause serious injuries. Deck railings are important for limiting the fall risks proposed by a deck and can make the most of the deck space. Wood, aluminum and glass-based railings can all be used as sole deck materials. A combination of railing materials can also be used to craft a complete one-of-a-kind railing. Deck railings help keep your deck safe from falls and allow the deck space to reach its aesthetic potential.
There are a number of custom exterior railing materials and styles that can be used for your exterior staircases. Aluminum picket railings can be used as a pure system or in combination with wooden materials. Wood railings can be a very inexpensive alternative to meeting your railing needs. Staircase railings need to match the angle of the stairs, which can be determined with a stair angle calculator. A stair angle calculator can be used to consider the stair rise, total rise and run as well as the stringer length, stair tread and more.
“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.
