benefits of aluminum railings

Getting to know some of the benefits of aluminum railings will help you make an informed decision about whether or not they are the best type of railing for your specific needs. At Vista Railings, we want to help you select railings that you will love for years to come. That is why we offer a wide range of railing products, including a selection of aluminum railings.

1. Durable

Unlike most other kinds of railings, aluminum railings are not susceptible to rust or corrosion and can easily withstand even the harshest weather conditions like snow, ice, rain, and sun exposure. Aluminum railings will also not splinter, warp, twist, or shrink, which means that they will remain durable for years to come.

When compared to other types of railings, aluminum railings:

  • Will not splinter, crack, or twist like wood.
  • Will not discolour or fade over time like composite.
  • Will not require structural post inserts to strengthen the fence to meed codes like vinyl.
  • Will not rust or corrode like steel.

2. Low Maintenance

Since aluminum railings are naturally strong products, they do not require very much maintenance to keep them in pristine condition. This is because most aluminum railings come with a powder-coat finish that will not crack, chip, or peel. In most cases, aluminum railings only need to be cleaned once a year or every six months if the railings are located near an ocean or pool.

3. Easy to Install

Thanks to manufacturers designing simple systems that come in kits, homeowners can easily install aluminum railings with basic tools, such as a saw, drill, tape measure, level, and rubber mallet. All aluminum railing kits come with almost everything you need for installation, from the posts down to the screws.

4. Affordable

Even though aluminum is not the cheapest railing material option, it is still an affordable option that provides a range of benefits. Compared to other types of railings, purchasing aluminum railings can save you money in the long run, as you will not have to worry about paying for any maintenance since aluminum lasts longer than other materials.

5. Aesthetically Pleasing

While a railing’s primary function is to provide safety, that does not mean that the railing cannot also be aesthetically pleasing. Aluminum railings are available in a wide selection of different styles and colours, making it easy to find the right railing to match your taste and home’s character. Choosing the right colour and design for your railing will help it blend into its surroundings, allowing the property as a whole to shine.
