Uses Of Wood Railings

By Adam Peters

How to choose wood railings for your home. The advantages of wood railings. How to care for wood railings.

If you are interested in information about wood railings, just read this article. You can have all of the information you need for installing any wood product, most especially wood railings. In addition, here are tips on taking care of your wood so that it will last as long as possible.

Even though there are many materials to choose from for porch railings, the consumer choice has overwhelmingly been wood railings. Wood railings add a certain charm to a home that you cannot get from other materials. When deciding between wood and some of the other traditional choices, for instance brick or other stones, or metal, many people will opt for wood. One of the main reasons for this is that wood railings are so easy to install. It doesn't require a great deal of time and does not require a lot of special tools.

However, newer materials are starting to preempt wood as the first choice for railings. Wood needs to be properly maintained in order to continue to look good. Periodic stripping, sanding, varnishing and polishing is needed for wood to look really good. People who enjoy these kinds of maintenance chores will continue to prefer wood.

Cedar railings give all the advantages of the look of wood without as much maintenance. Cedar railings can be made from milled cedar or from hand peeled cedar. Peeled cedar retains the natural aroma and quality of cedar and is very resistant to decay. Peeled cedar is produced by the natural process of a cedar tree peeling off its bark and the exposed trunk of the tree is used to make the railings. The alternate way to have cedar railings is to use milled cedar. This yields a smoother look than the natural peeled look of cedar.

Cedar comes in two varieties, white or red cedar. Red cedar may change the color of your railings over time, but white cedar remains constant in color for as long as you have your railings. Cedar railings will have a very long life if they are properly maintained, and are not exposed to too much direct moisture.
