Picket Railing systems maintain to be a popular decision for everything ranging from small balconies to extensive roof decks. They offer the most flexibility with an extensive choice of options such as size, style, and top rail alternative. Picket Railings can be used for chain link or steel and mesh wire, concrete or timber posts. Other equipment or materials used to design and set up picket railings may consist of timber boards and railings. After the timber boards or chain link are in place, a live railing or the desired shrubbery can be added. When installing picket railings the creation is quick and boasts amazing visual features. For a picket railings to maintain their durability frequent maintenance may be needed, depending on the materials used. When installing picket railings or fences we use a sequence for positioning and digging the holes at roughly six and a half feet. Once we have established the picket location we put the posts in, ensuring they are structurally sound. Use post of four by three inches extensive and of five feet long. After two days, we nail the railings in three rows of four by two inches onto the posts straight.

For exterior picket railings, there are a number of materials that can be used, picket railings are a popular form of decorative railings as they have an aesthetic appeal that is desired by many homeowners. Picket railing systems can be made using wood, metal or plastic. The styles and shapes picket railings are able to create are nearly endless, with possible finishes that can increase the longevity of the railing system. Picket railings are a popular railing alternative for Calgary homeowners as picket fences have smallest expansion and shrinkage characteristics and remain consistent throughout farthest heating and cooling temperatures, making them ideal for Calgary’s ever changing climate.

  • 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.
