Vinyl Vs. Wood and Other Materials for Railings—Is It Really an Upgrade?
In one word—YES! And the most significant advantage vinyl has over wood is that it’s a maintenance-free material. Vinyl railings are also big on style, so you never have to sacrifice beauty and elegance to gain function.
Vinyl railings are a great alternative to wood railings since they don’t require staining or painting every few years. Additionally, unlike wrought iron railings, vinyl railings won’t rust. But that’s not nearly all.
5 Big Advantages of Vinyl Railings Vs. Wood
- Vinyl railings are UV-stable and won’t fade or become discolored over time.
- Hate splinters? Vinyl is smooth to the touch and won’t crack or splinter like wood.
- Vinyl railings are easy to clean with a pressure washer—without the worry of damage.
- Like to grill on or near your deck? Vinyl is fire resistant and safer than wood.
- Premium, commercial-grade vinyl like we use in our railings is physically stronger than wood.

FAQ: How Do I Build a Deck Railing System that Lasts?
If you’re the type of homeowner who enjoys completing DIY projects around your Lancaster-area home and backyard, you’re probably well aware that building your own deck and railing system from wood can be a fulfilling venture.
However, while you can certainly DIY your deck, stair rail, or porch railings out of lumber, it’s not the safest thing to do—or even the most cost-effective over the long haul. Wood just doesn’t last. And if you do not have professional construction skills, it can be challenging to build a deck that’s up to building code standards.
The best way to build a strong deck railing system that will last for decades is to trust the pros at Elite Outdoor Expressions. We will help you choose the right materials—most often maintenance-free vinyl—and we’ll take all the guesswork out of installation, too.
