Here in Western New York, it can get incredibly cold in the winter, with snow and ice covering the ground sometimes for months at a time. This can create hazards for you and your family, particularly on areas with ramps or stairs, like your driveway and front door area. It is crucial that you have proper railings in place to help keep your loved ones safe from slips and falls during the winter months.
Vinyl vs. Wood Railings
Here at The Vinyl Outlet, we are proud to install some of the highest quality vinyl railing safety systems in the area. So what makes vinyl railings so much better than traditional wood railings? It all comes down to the quality and durability of the material. When wood is covered in ice and snow throughout the winter, it absorbs much of that moisture. Then, when it thaws out in the spring, that moisture can turn into wood rot and mold, leading you to have to replace your railings each year or risk them not being safe anymore.
With vinyl railings, on the other hand, no moisture is retained within the material at all, so it can last for year after year, even under the harshest weather conditions. Not only that, but we also reinforce our vinyl railings with aluminum stiffeners for added railing safety. Our railings have been tested to be able to withstand weights of up to 1,000 pounds!
