Tradional Railing

 

Post and spindles attach to the fascia board of the deck. A wide top rail can be installed that's ideal for plates or drinks. Alternative construction methods may have the 4x4 post extend above the top railing cap.

Similar construction to the standard style railing above with an added bottom rail that provides an additional space between the bottom of the railing and the deck.

Spindles attach to the outside of the top and bottom rail. Extended 4x4 post support the railing and add a decorative look. Ball tops or post caps can be added to the extended post for a more stylish appearance.
