Hello LogHome Neighborhood,
I was thinking about changing my deck railings. Right now I have pine spindles and I'm not happy how they are holding up, plus the maintenance issue.
I was thinking about going with ceder logs with the plexiglass inclosed. Cabin is on a lake so I want to have a nice view. Some of my concerns is we are located in Vermont so we get lots of snow and I was wondering about the glass discoloring after awhile?
Wondering if anyone out there as has any experiences with this or if you know someone that has?
Would really appreciate any input and look forward to hearing your comments.
I'd use tempered glass.
We have just the cedar logs - why do you have to have anything in between them? We are in Maine so we also get a ton of snow. I added a couple of pics so you could see.
Thank you Judy and Lee,
The reason I want to put something between them is because of the view. I do not want to look through anything!
Thanks for you reply,
Plexiglass can scratch easily especially when you clean it and rub it with the dirt still on it, but if your careful it may be okay for a while. I designed into my outside railing,( we haven't built yet) to use metal spindles in front of the great room and as I like the look of log spindles, to use them where we wouldn't be looking out the great room windows, on both ends. They will block a lot less of the scenery.
