The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in us spending more time at home, not just for work or school, but also for leisure and recreation. Planning ahead is key, and instead of planning for that summer vacation away, this is a good time to plan and invest in turning your home into a place for relaxation.
Is it time to get your deck or patio finished to entertain your bubble or to enjoy some peace and quiet during those long summer days? Glass railings can complete your deck, with numerous benefits. Read on to find out more.
Glass railings are a great way to add a contemporary touch to your deck, making an old deck look new again. They work with all sizes of decks. The slim, sleek, glass panels can make a narrow deck appear more spacious. Clear glass railings are unobtrusive and work especially well if your deck looks over water or has a great view. With nothing to distract from the view, you can enjoy your prime location from all angles.
As with most home improvements, installing glass railings will also increase the value of your home.
Glass railings can be customized to your needs. For example, clear and frosted glass can be used in combination, with clear glass giving you unhindered views of your outdoor oasis, while frosted glass at strategic points can be installed to provide privacy from prying neighbours. A range of hardware and finishes can be chosen as well. There is an appropriate customization for every project.
Glass railings are made using tempered glass which is about four times stronger than annealed glass. The strength of this glass allows this barrier between the deck and ground below to remain stable upon day-to-day stressors.
While glass railings will require the occasional cleaning, there’s little more to that when it comes to maintenance, unlike wood deck railings that need annual painting or staining and may crack or splinter over time.
For safety, railings are an absolute necessity for decks which are raised off the ground. It’s important to choose something that is practical and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Glass railings fit the bill! So, contact us today to discover the endless options.
