The Best Deck and Railing Options for Your Home In Calgary

Deciding to build a new deck and/or railings for your home is a big decision. There is a lot that goes into it, between planning, budgeting, and eventual construction. You deserve a deck and railings that not only look beautiful, but will stand the test of time too.  

At Mountain View Sun Decks, we understand that the building company you decide to go with for your new deck and railings should give you peace of mind throughout the entire process.  You want something not only stylish and well-built, but something that you’ll feel comfortable with your family lounging on for years to come. This is why we provide one of the biggest selections of the highest quality deck/railing building supplies in Calgary. 

Today, we at Mountain View Sun Deck would like to share the options we have available to you, and shed some detail about why these options are the best for your deck and railing needs. 


What Makes a Great Deck?

A great outdoor deck is one that is both functional and visually appealing. It should be well-designed and built with high-quality materials that are durable and able to withstand the elements. The size and layout should be appropriate for the intended use, with sufficient space for furniture and other amenities. 

It should also provide easy access to and from the house, with a clear path and safe steps or ramps. The landscaping and surrounding environment should also be considered, with the deck design complementing and enhancing the natural surroundings. Finally, a great deck should be designed with safety in mind, with appropriate railings and other features to prevent accidents.

Here are the custom deck materials we have available for your future outdoor deck:

Cedar Decks

If you like a natural product yet long-lasting and low maintenance consider installing a cedar deck.


What Makes Great Railings?

Great outdoor railings, like decks, should provide safety, durability, and style to any outdoor space. They should be made from high-quality materials that can withstand harsh weather conditions and remain sturdy over time. Aesthetically, they should match the design of the surrounding space, offering a visually appealing addition to the area. 

They should also be easy to install and maintain, with minimal upkeep required. Additionally, great outdoor railings should offer security and peace of mind to those using the space, especially if it is located at a high elevation. Lastly, they should comply with local building codes and safety standards, ensuring that they provide a secure barrier for those using the outdoor area.

Here are the custom railing options we have available for your next outdoor railings:
