The Benefits of Having Metal Deck Railing in the Winter

Anyone who lives in a colder climate understands the unique challenges that winter brings. Between the frigid temperatures, ice, snow, and sleet, your home or business takes quite a beating – not to mention the copious amounts of salt used to de-ice the roads. All of these elements combine to create a season that can be very hard on your property.

Luckily, Union Metalworks has the solution: metal deck railing. With balusters and rails made from metal, you can rest assured knowing that your deck railing will stand the test of time.

Impressive Weather Resistance

When it comes to toughing out the winter, nothing performs better than metal. Vinyl and wood railings can decay, crack, shrink, and expand repeatedly over the cold season. In other words, they’ll deteriorate rapidly and have to be replaced before you know it. Metal, on the other hand, can withstand the elements regardless of how tough the winter proves to be.

Additionally, with balusters and railings made from aluminum, you don’t have to worry about rust and corrosion resulting from the moisture and salt that is common this time of year. In fact, aluminum is actually made stronger by frigid temperatures.

Safety First

Winter can be dangerous, especially for the young and the elderly. The last thing you want is to see a loved one slip and hurt themselves as a result of deteriorating railings. With metal deck railing on your property, you’ll be able to relax knowing that there’s a sturdy and safe railing for everyone moving around your property.

Low Maintenance

When spring finally arrives, it can be discouraging to see the damage that the winter season brought to your property. Many wooden surfaces have to repainted or even replaced – including wood decking, railings, and balusters.

However, after you install metal deck railing, your spring to-do list will undoubtedly shrink. Unlike wood, aluminum balusters will never rot and do not need to be repainted. Reach out to us today to order metal deck railing and start getting ready for next winter.
