First, a few fyi’s. Deck railing looks really good, but it has a purpose. And that is to make sure that your beautiful 18 month old daughter that just learned to walk doesn’t walk right off the edge of the deck. Or your drunk friend Jason. Either one. Because of that, smart people made rules for deck railing:
- Any deck over 30” off the ground needs a rail
- If there are three or more stairs they need a rail
- The rail has to be at least 36” tall
- There can’t be gaps in the rail bigger than 4” (I guess that’s how big a baby’s head is?)
Now the fun stuff.
