Frequently asked questions

My deck looks dingy and dirty. Can you restore a new look to my deck before you install a Re-Rail ? I am even considering replacing my existing deck with a new deck.2021-09-03T16:46:55+00:00

Consider keeping your existing deck platform; having it pressure washed and stained and then installing a Re-Rail in place of the old handrail.  You will be saving a small fortune in not having to rebuild a deck. We have another service that can pressure wash your existing deck and apply a high quality stain/sealer, with a pigment color of your choice, to protect from weather elements.

Do you warrantee your work ?2021-09-03T16:38:36+00:00

Yes.  We provide a 2 year warrantee.

Can the wooden parts of the railing be constructed out of another type of wood if I choose?2021-09-03T16:49:31+00:00

Certainly.  Our base pricing is for pressure-treated pine, which are select pieces from the manufacturer.  Properly stained, the PT pine will last as long as the steel.  As an alternative though, to PT pine, we can supply other specialty hardwoods or composites as integral parts of the Re-Rail installation.

What is the maintenance will be required for my new Re-Rail handrail, as compared with a 2×2 picket railing? Will the Re-Rail parts rust?2021-09-03T17:01:15+00:00

Maintenance of a wooden 2×2 picket handrail is very tedious and time-consuming, with regards to pressure washing and staining all four sides of every 2×2 picket. Our steel products are supplied with an industrial coating, and like the wrought iron railing on an old front porch, are more durable, with less maintenance than any of the wood trim parts on the same house.

Does the Re-Rail system pass my local building code?2021-09-03T16:59:26+00:00

Yes. We have engineered the 4×6 post Re-Rail system to specifications that local building departments will be satisfied with for safety.

Will the Re-Rail be safe for my children? Can they climb over it?2021-09-03T16:58:42+00:00

Building departments use the term “ladder effect” as pertaining to horizontal deck railing systems. Horizontal rail parts are approved in the building code, although they can be climbed over.  Regards any such danger, one must also realize that a chair pulled close to even a vertical 2×2 picket railing can also be climbed by a child.  Each parent must be aware of their children’s inclinations to climb up onto things.  It is good to talk with other parents who have similar deck installations.
