Deck railing project

 

Hi

I would like to build a white deck railing as the pictures attached. 

What type of materials do I need to get? This is from my front porch at home. I already have installed long white piles through the decking as the picture below.

Is there is a pre made railing fence that I can buy in Bunnings as the picture below?

Hi @GigiFlores,

 

Let me extend a very warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community.

 

Normally the ever-helpful Bunnings D.I.Y. expert @MitchellMc would be able to promptly assist you with this project but he is taking a well-deserved break at the moment. I will ask him to assist you when he returns next week. Many thanks for your patience in the meantime. I will tag other members who might be able to also assist: @Adam_W, @redracer01, @Brad, @TedBear, @Madmoggy, @DIYology

 

Please don't hesitate to post anytime you have something to share with the community or need a hand with a project around the house and garden. We're pleased to have you join us and look forward to reading about all your projects and plans. 

 

Thanks again,

 

Jason

Re: Deck railing project

Hi @GigiFlores,

 

I haven't seen any pre-made sections to suit this purpose before. You can build something similar by using a handrail, bottom rail and balustrade.

 

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Re: Deck railing project

Hi Mitchell,

 

Can I find all those items in Bunnings? I was looking also to get some cap rail on Bunnings website and I couldnt find any.

 

Would you mind to send me some links about this product?

 

Many Thanks

Gigi

I believe the cap rail you a referring to is the handrail I have linked above.

Re: Deck railing project

Hi Mitch, I was interested in this, but your suggestion is missing the vertical slats, and also the balastrade that travels higher to meet the pergola?

Re: Deck railing project

Hi @muzzymuzzy,

 

There are a variety of different materials and styles to choose from. What size vertical slats were you interested in? As mentioned above, you could use Heritage 42 x 42 x 940mm Treated Pine Plain Baluster. Alternatively, there is Woodhouse 66 x 18mm 5.4m Pine Primed Fj Losp,  Woodhouse Weatherproof 138 x 30mm 6.0m F7 FJ H3 DAR LOSP Treated Primed Radiata Pine and Woodhouse 187 x 18mm 5.4m FJ LOSP H3 Dressed Primed Pine.

 

The posts which travel up to meet the roof would be 88 x 88 H3 LOSP pine. You might like to look at our complete range of H3 LOSP Pine as there are various combinations you can use.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.

 

Mitchell
