3 Ways to Save Money with Aluminum Railing Systems

Aluminum railings offers significant cost advantages for any home. Whether you have a small or large aluminum picket railing system, you will experience the following benefits:

1. Simple and Efficient Installation

Unlike wood or iron railing systems, modern aluminum railing systems feature simple, straightforward, and efficient installation. For example, a regular picket railing system from Vista Railing Systems features fully pre-assembled posts with factory-attached sleeved brackets to allow for fast and easy assembly while ensuring a professional finish. This reduces installation time, saving you money and allowing you to enjoy your view as soon as possible.

2. Reduced Maintenance and Repair Requirements

High-quality aluminum railing systems feature premium powder coating that will not require repainting, staining, or sealing throughout its usable life. This coating also minimizes cleaning requirements, especially when compared to wood or iron railing. In addition to being virtually maintenance-free, aluminum railings have an incredible strength-to-weight ratio. This drastically reduces the chance of chipping or bending due to an impact, reducing repair requirements.

3. Increased Durability and Longer Usable Life

Aluminum railings are incredibly durable, offering the strength of other metals without the high risk of rust. This lack of rust drastically increases durability and extends the total usable life of your aluminum railing system, even if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions. Aluminum railings are also highly resistant to moisture and extreme temperatures, eliminating the risk of mold or warping associated with wooden railings. Whether you have a picket, cable, or glass railing system, you can be sure that it will last for years.
