Install Your Deck Railing System in 3 Easy Steps

While you may think that these high-end, classy aluminum deck railings must require installation by a professional contractor, the truth is anyone can install a Regal Ideas aluminum rail system in a surprisingly short amount of time. The simple installation process requires only a few basic tools and can be completed easily by a DIY homeowner.

Be sure to check local building codes prior to construction to ensure you're in compliance with any regulations that may exist in your area.

  1. Install the aluminum posts. Identify the location of each post then loosely secure each one into place, allowing for some play if needed.
  2. Install the top & bottom deck rails. Simply slide the top rail and bottom rail into the welded post brackets. Use a level to plumb all posts, tightly secure the posts in place, then fasten the top rail and bottom rail to the post.
    Tip: Drill a 3/16" hole every 24" on the bottom rail to allow any water or moisture to escape.
  3. Install the aluminum pickets or tempered glass infill. For pickets, lock into the bottom rail and snap into the top rail one at a time. As the pickets are being locked in, snap the aluminum spacers into the top and bottom rails between each picket. For glass panels, clip the vinyl insert into the  top & bottom rail and place a rubber block on each end, then slide the glass panel in from the top rail, making sure it resta on the rubber blocks.
