You might associate Fisher Lumber with wood, but we work with a wide variety of materials in order to help meet the needs of as many customers as possible. One of the numerous things we offer in addition to our decking services is vinyl deck railing. What are some of the benefits of vinyl deck railing, and why should you consider choosing it for your backyard? This type of deck railing can provide you with increased durability, moisture resistance, and easy maintenance.
Vinyl deck railing is much more durable than similar types of deck railing, as it is designed to easily withstand various harsh weather conditions. Whether your backyard experiences a great deal of direct sunlight in the summer or you are concerned about rain and snow taking a toll, you can rest easy. In fact, when your deck railing is installed correctly, it will be up to five times stronger than wood would be.
Keep Water Out
One of the biggest issues many homeowners face with wood deck railing is moisture problems. When moisture penetrates the surface of wood, it can lead to decay and wood rot. Vinyl deck railing will not absorb any type of moisture. You never need to worry about painting or staining it, and it will naturally repel water with ease throughout the life of your deck.
Because vinyl deck railing is so durable and you do not need to worry about moisture problems, you can clean it much more easily than other types of railings. In order to keep it in great condition, you simply need to wipe down the deck railing with a little bit of warm water and some dish soap. If you have a hose or a pressure washer on the appropriate setting, you can also use them to clean up. Vinyl deck railing also resists fading and discoloration, so as long as you choose the right cleaners, you can clean your railings quickly and easily.
