Foothill Fence builds and installs stainless steel cable railings for customers that want to focus on the view from their deck or balcony without traditional posts or balusters getting in the way. Outdoor cable railing is a highly durable, low-maintenance solution focused on achieving a minimalist style.
Cable railing is perfect for a modern, linear look that offers limited visual distraction
A lot of residential customers interested in building a new deck or balcony want a sleek and safe railing system that won’t obstruct their panoramic scenic views. We recommend cable railing because it’s beautiful to look at, and the cable disappears around the railing space at distances over 7-10 feet.
Depending on your home’s landscape, you may want to mix the stainless steel cable runs with wood posts and top rails to create a unique look that adds more warmth than all components in stainless steel.
So if you want metal deck railing that blends into the scenery, contact us to learn more about the appeal of cable railing for exterior projects.
