The advantages of aluminum vs wood railings

When comes the time to choose a railing for your outdoor deck, it can be difficult to make a choice between the different types of materials. In order to help you in your search, we would like to show you the many advantages of aluminum railings over wooden ones.

We all know someone who spends a considerable amount of time in spring, maintaining the wooden railings and handrails on their decks. Cleaning, sanding, treating, dying and repainting should be done once a year (or once every two years as a bare minimum). It is a long and arduous task and one that needs to be done all over again every year. Time consuming and costly. Fortunately, aluminum railings require minimal maintenance so you can make the most of your deck and enjoy the sun. No need to dye, paint or process aluminum railings. To maintain their shine and remove dirt, you can simply clean them with a hose and soapy water. That’s it! And honestly, this maintenance is not mandatory.

In connection with the previous point, the finishes of the Distinction aluminum railings are guaranteed, and the structures as well. To our knowledge, such a warranty on wooden railings does not exist. Good luck trying to get a refund at your local hardware store if your wooden railing has been damaged or if the finish has lost its shine!

Whether you do the installation yourself or hire a team of professionals, you will save on installation time by choosing aluminum railings. If you decide to do it yourself, the lightness of aluminum in comparison with wood will make its installation quick and effective. In addition, Aluminum Distinction products are delivered pre-cut, saving you the time and hassle of measurement and cutting. In addition, wooden railings are often more difficult to install since they require more adjustment during installation.

Snow, ice, rain, UV ray, no problem, aluminum is resistant to all weather, which makes it a lasting, durable material. Furthermore, aluminum will not rust, rot and will never be infested with insects. In short, aluminum will preserve its high-end look for several decades.

Whether you like modern, contemporary, sleek or classic looks, the possibilities are endless with aluminum railings. No matter what project you have in mind, our team of experts guarantees to meet your needs.
