Should You Add a Railing to Your Deck?

It’s important to determine your individual needs when deciding whether or not to add railing to your deck. Our team of expert, Trex® deck designers at Distinctive Deck Designs will analyze your space and provide advice on whether or not a railing system will enhance your custom deck. Our high-quality, Trex® decking products provide both functionally and an elevated aesthetic to your overall design.

Create a visual boundary

Adding railing to your deck design will visually segment your deck from the rest of your outdoor area. If you are choosing to install a multi-level or wrap-around deck, adding railing will establish separation and even create unique spaces within your deck design. Distinctive Deck Design builders will ensure that your railing serves the correct functions as part of your overall vision.

Increase safety

Railings are an important safety feature on a deck. If your deck is tall enough, a railing will be required to ensure the safety of your family. Even if you are considering installing a deck that is lower to the ground, having a railing will decrease the risk of injury and provide a buffer for children and pets.

Receive the best products on the market

Our Trex® decking products are unmatched by any other railing system. Trex® decking is the most popular brand of synthetic, splinter-free deck railing with handrail components.

How to Utilize the Space Beneath Your Deck

Installing a Distinctive Deck Designs deck area in your outdoor space is the perfect way to add value to your home. But it doesn’t have to stop there! Consider all the ways you can transform the space beneath your deck to elevate your backyard even more than you already have. Under deck solutions like added storage, or patio installation will allow you to get the most out of your deck design.

Create a stunning patio design underneath your deck

Distinctive Deck Designs offers patio designs that will fit perfectly under your high deck. Our team will ensure that your custom deck design allows for the right amount of space to add a covered patio to your Northern Virginia home. Our patio construction company only uses quality materials from top manufacturers like Techo-Bloc and EP Henry to ensure a long-lasting product. Beat the heat of the North Virginian summer and enjoy extra living space with patio design. Consider hanging a porch swing or twinkly lights to create an unbeatable ambiance under your deck.

Use the space underneath your deck for storage

A popular, under the deck solution, is to keep your outdoor maintenance supplies and extraneous items in a storage compartment. If your deck is too low to create more living space, utilizing the space for storage is a wonderful option. Beneath the deck is a great place to store things that don’t need climate-controlled storage and can potentially free up space in your garage or basement!

Other creative under deck solutions:

  • Build a shed under your deck
  • Create a playing area for children
  • Plant a garden
  • Add skirting or latticework under your deck.
