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
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.
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.

Trex® decking is the fact that you’ll never have to worry about splinters or
warping of the wood. Since your deck will be made from synthetic materials, it
will look flawless all year-long and be safe for your family and pets.
Trex® decking is also low maintenance, which is a big plus
for homeowners. A good scrub at the beginning of spring will help keep it shiny
and clean. You won’t have to utilize potentially harmful chemicals to keep your
natural wood deck in good shape.
Trex® material also stays much cooler to the touch than
wood. Enjoy a barefoot stroll on your deck in the summertime and be completely
comfortable. Let your kids and pets spend time on your deck without

Distinctive Deck Designs prides itself on providing you with completely customizable deck design, and Trex® decking offers us the ability to create uniquely curved designs to match your vision perfectly.
Trex® Decking tends to be more eco-friendly since it’s made
from recycled materials and the process of manufacturing it is less damaging to
the environment than that of treating real wood.

backyard and want to go with a high-quality, low maintenance alternative to
wood, consider going with Trex® decking. Contact Distinctive

Composite decking is a beautiful product and is used in a variety of decks all across the nation. In applications throughout Northern Virginia, residents find composite decks are very easy to keep clean and are less expensive to maintain than other decks. Traditional wood decks, in comparison, need sanding and periodic staining or repainting. This adds to the cost of the product.
