Advantages of Cable Railings

Cable Railings | August 13, 2020

Cable railings are the ideal solution for homes at higher elevations as they provide safety while also allowing for beautiful views. At Vista Railings, we are aware of the many advantages of cable railings and how this particular type of aluminum railing system is a great choice for decks of all shapes and sizes. That is why we offer a selection of cable railing systems in a range of different dimensions.

1. Offers Easy Installation

Cable railings can easily be installed efficiently with the use of minimal tools. Cable railings also provide a simple installation process that can easily be handled by a skilled homeowner or by a professional.

2. Requires Minimal Maintenance

Similar to other types of aluminum railing products, cable railings are highly durable and can easily withstand exposure to all kinds of harsh weather patterns. All cable hardware used in cable railings is made from marine grade stainless steel, which is highly resistant to corrosion and requires minimal maintenance.

3. Increases Home Value

Cable railings that are properly mounted with the right strength and tension can last for decades, making them a wise investment for homeowners. When it comes to selling your current home, having cable railings on your deck will allow potential buyers to better enjoy the view from the deck while also providing them with a structurally sound railing system.

4. Complements Different Home Styles

Unlike some other types of railings, cable railings can easily blend in with any design or style of home, from contemporary homes to traditional homes, thanks to their clean lines. Cable railings can be installed using a selection of different materials, such as aluminum and wood, making it easier to find the right cable railings for your unique property.

5. Provides Unobtrusive Views

Cable railings are constructed from posts, rails, and narrow cables that allow you to see your surroundings right through the railing. Depending on the configuration of the deck the cable railings are being installed on, you may have the option to space out the posts every four or five feet, which would help keep the view as unobstructed as possible. Cable railings are the ideal option for homes near or overlooking the water, as they will not be affected by the morning fog obscuring the view like glass railings often are.
