Wood Railing Installation & Replacement

Wood railing installation & replacement is the classic option

Wood railing installations are very popular as a complement to an already existing wooden deck, but wood railings offer a variety of unique benefits of their own. Perhaps the biggest advantage of wood railings are their variety. Wood railings can be made from a wide range of wood types, offering different strengths. These wood types include:

  • Pine: This is the most affordable wood railing option. Pine is flexible with a variety of staining options. Since this wood is generally treated, it is also resistant to insects and rot.
  • Cypress: While costing slightly more than pine, cypress wood is naturally resistant to rot and insects while boasting a beautiful, dark, and rich tan or red color.
  • Cedar: This wood has a golden brown color and is fire resistant. It is quite popular thanks to its rich finish and natural beauty with only a simple glossing.
  • Redwood: This wood is long lasting and boasts a deep red color. Redwood is the highest end of the common wood option and offers high quality at a matching price.
  • Tropical Hardwood (Ironwood & Pau Lope): These tan colored woods are an uncommon option, but they offer an even higher quality than redwood with a longer lifespan and higher price.

Regardless of what wood you choose, one of the biggest strengths of a wood railing installation or replacement is customizability. Wood railings can be painted or stained in practically any color you can think of, which makes them easier to find the perfect complement to your home. Wood railings are also quite sturdy and long lasting, although the exact lifespan varies based on the type of wood.
