Move your posts from the top of the deck to the sides and increase the square footage of your outdoor living space!
If you’ve seen fascia mounting brackets for deck railing, you may have wondered why. After all, in most applications, posts are mounted to the deck’s surface. But there are extremely good reasons to use a fascia mounting method!
The three reasons to consider using a fascia mounted railing are:
- More Space
When you choose to move your deck posts off your deck surface, you gain deck square footage. In fact, for every 1 linear foot of railing, you gain 6” of square footage. While space is important on a residential deck, on a commercial deck, mounting posts to the fascia gives a restaurant or an entertainment venue more room for tables or for entertaining.
Under deck options have come a long way, with complete systems for waterproofing. But if you have a membrane and a watertight under deck space with a wood or metal ceiling, there’s always a chance that drilling into the deck surface to mount posts will allow water to penetrate the deck, even with good flashing. Fascia mounting eliminates that risk and helps keep the watertight system intact since you don’t have to drill into the deck surface.
Beautiful flooring doesn’t have to be marred by posts and bolts—you can mount your railing posts to the fascia and preserve its beauty.
