Aluminum Railing Sections with Ipe Deck
I am trying to decide on the style of railing to install with my new, 800-sq-ft deck. The decking will be ipe, and I want to select a railing that is in keeping with the same quality. I like the look of combining wood with black metal.
As an example, I like ipe hand railings and horizontal supports combined with black aluminum balusters (spindles).
I am particularly interested in aluminum railing sections that could be attached to ipe posts. Ipedepot.com offers this type of product. Please look at the second row of photos on this page: http://www.ipedepot.com/deckpicks.htm.
Has anyone had experience with these railing sections from ipedepot.com? I would be very interested in some customer feedback.
Has anyone used black aluminum balusters?
