Cable Railing Systems For Decks

Wood Posts

Alternatively, wood posts flaunt a natural and strong appearance that is customizable by choice of wood species, stain, and finish. You can use your current wood posts with a component kit to tension cable from one post to another. Viewrail’s DriveTite Surface is perfect for adding cable railing to pre-existing wood posts with little modification to your deck. It can be used with posts that are solid or hollow while standard DriveTite kits are only for solid posts.

These DriveTite kits are also DIY friendly which is an attractive feature for many deck owners. Installing a cable railing system yourself using pre-existing wood posts are two great ways to save time and money on your project. If you are looking to purchase metal posts, they are also DIY accessible.
