When choosing which balusters will work best for your area, it’s important to know how those will be attaching to your deck.There are two ways to install your spindles.

The middle of the top and bottom rails is where the most common installation style of baluster is found.This can be done either by using a coordinating connector at either end of the baluster or by cutting out a small hole in the rails for each railing to be inserted into.The in-between mounting method allows you to have a polished look for your balusters from both inside and outside views.

Unless installing your balusters into your rails via a hole is your next step, you will have to choose a ba-luster connection.The baluster shoes are needed at both the top and bottom of the spindle.Balusters are usually packaged in packs of 10 and balusters in a coordinating set of 20.This allows you to have your quantities in hand at the same time.The majority of baluster connections will fit the standard 34 inch size and allow you to easily connect your pieces on either level or stair applications.When working with pressure-treated lumber, these connections will help you affix your balusters to your rails.Important notes should be considered when choosing your baluster connectors.

Once the installation is complete, the connectors will be hidden inside the baluster.The metal balusters will be separated from the rail lumber by a thin section.

The baluster shoes will add a touch of adornment at the top and bottom of them while providing the same reliable hold.

One-piece designs are available for installing balusters on stairs such as the Square Standard Estate.The Square Estate and Designer Round are two models that sell a stair accessory separately or as part of a kit, which allows for the perfect stair angle.

Two included installation screws are drilled in either side of the glass baluster connectors, which are essentially the same as standard ones.Ensuring that you are sticking within the same system is the most important thing to keep in mind when purchasing glass balusters.Fortress glass balusters must be used.The width of glass balusters can vary from brand to brand because they don’t have a standard size.

One of the simplest types of balusters to install is face-mounting.It’s a great option for a new deck installation or replacement of old wooden balusters.

No additional parts or pieces are required when mounting face-mount style balusters.Attach your baluster with the included installation screws.If installing metal balusters on pressure-treated lumber, be sure to use a plastic washer between the rails.Not all of the washers will be included by many brands.To confirm, be sure to read “Package Contents”.Important notes should be considered when choosing face-mount balusters.

The top and bottom deck rails are covered by Straight Traditional Face Mount Balusters.The straight line form makes a strong statement, and color-matching screws reinforce the clean lines.These balusters are great for new construction.

The “belly” or “bow” shape of the Architectural Curved Face-Mount Balusters are similar to traditional.The balusters are an easy way to add sophistication and grace to your deck.

Security is provided by glass balusters.Glass balusters can be installed between the top and bottom rail or face-mounted.Make sure to check the holes in your baluster to make sure they are compatible with installation screws.

You can sandwich the whole top and bottom rail with another 2×4 if you leave the screws visible when installing the glass balusters.
