Nothing is more beautiful than a home with a wrap-around patio or spacious porch to enjoy the afternoon sunshine or spend an evening around the fire. In Florida, many older homes have wrap-around porches and back patios, with some requiring fencing to make them safer and more enjoyable for homeowners.
If you’re thinking of adding a railing to your porch or patio, consider these three options from FloriFence. We can help you design a railing to match your fence that is suitable for your home and stays within your budget.
Aluminum fencing is great for porches and patios because it provides a view that will keep pets safe from falling off the deck. When combined with a wooden or aluminum trim that complements your porch, you offer a great place for people to relax, lean against the railing, and watch the nature or neighborhood with their morning coffee.
Wooden rails are equally popular for porch and patio designs. They can be vertically designed like an aluminum fence or have a split rail design for a more simplistic and rustic appearance. Wood railing won’t last as long as aluminum, but it can look nicer if the porch is all wooden and has a cabin style.
If you use your patio as a primary socializing spot, you may want privacy fencing to surround it and create a more intimate environment. This is a great option for patios with hot tubs, fire pits, or other outdoor elements where you socialize. Privacy fencing can create the illusion of another room and is ideal for yards where privacy fencing isn’t used around the perimeter.
