27 May Everything You Need to Know About Cable Railing
Cable Railing is gaining in popularity with homeowners all across the Quad Cities. This functional, safe and low-maintenance railing adds a sleek and modern vibe to your exterior deck or terrace. The best thing about this product? It doesn’t interrupt your view.
Whether you live among scenic grandeur or a simple suburban backyard an uninterrupted view feels much more serene. Thick, obstructing picket railings don’t jest prevent you from seeing the world from your vantage point, they make your deck feel closed-off and tend to pen in smaller deck, making them, well, smaller.
Sleek cable railing around your deck blends almost seamlessly with the surroundings. And the minimalist design of this material goes with virtually every style of home. Install cable barriers around your deck and see for yourself the amazing ambience it provides.
What Exactly Is Cable Railing?
Cable railing, simply put, is a deck barrier system in which picket railings and balusters are replaced by stainless steel cabling. Your cable railing can be installed vertically between the top and bottom rails, as traditional picket design, or horizontally through the posts. When installed horizontally the posts must be fitted for the cable. The cables will require tightening, for safety, and typically the fittings in the posts accommodate this.
Some homeowners tend to shy away from this versatile product assuming it will look too industrial or commercial for their home. While many commercial buildings appreciate the versatility, strength and security cable rails provide, today’s residential cable railing has an aesthetic appeal as well. And what homeowner doesn’t desire versatility, strength and security for their home?
