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.

Regards,

John

Years ago we did an inside staircase and balcony with tempered glass capped with oak to code. It was great. I would not use this outside mainly so as to not kill birds who try to fly through it. I would use black aluminum or powder coated iron verticals spaced 4 inches which I think is code now. If you use black your eyes tend to see through it. It sort of becomes invisible. Cap it with wood to meet code height.
