Best Railings for Unobstructed Views

Deck Railing Styles | December 5, 2019

Are you are thinking about building a deck to get the most out of the view your home has to offer but are worried that adding a deck railing will obstruct the view? At Vista Railings, we understand how important it is to create a safe deck space for your family to enjoy, while also being able to take full advantage of the view from all angles. That is why we offer a wide range of different railing products, including some of the best railings for unobstructed views.

Railings for Unobstructed Views

While some types of railings are designed to guarantee a fantastic view from your deck, the type of railing you choose will depend on your stylistic preferences and overall budget. Some of the best railings for unobstructed views include:

Glass Railings

Glass railings provide a sleek look, making it easy to sit back and relax while enjoying completely unobstructed views from anywhere on your deck. Depending on the finished look you want your railings to have, you can choose between framed glass railings and frameless glass railings. All glass inserts for framed glass railings come in standard size glass panels that are available in a range of different widths (in 2″ increments), while frameless glass railings require custom ordered glass to fit the specific opening size of your unique railing system.

All glass railings are low maintenance, requiring only periodic cleaning, and are durable enough to withstand harsh weather patterns. Adding a glass railing to your deck is the perfect option for creating an upscale feel without a ton of maintenance.

Cable Railings

If you are not a fan of glass railings but are still wanting to enjoy unobstructed views, installing a cable railing might be the perfect option for you. Cable railings offer a more modern look and feel when compared to the sleek, upscale look of glass railings, and they require even less maintenance, as you will never have to worry about cleaning the cables.

Cable railings are incredibly easy to install as the cables come in pre-cut lengths that are designed to fit perfectly into the metal and wood posts. When compared to glass railings, cable railings are often cheaper but are just as durable.
