Mounting Matters: Baluster Length & Rail Height
Structural building requirements are in place to protect the safety and welfare of people. Local building codes vary greatly from state to state and even city to city. Many municipalities require a building permit for the construction of a deck or patio, especially if it is attached to a house or is more than 30 inches off the ground.
Length & Height
Baluster length is just one factor that goes into the total height of your installed handrail. We have provided examples of the two most common rail heights below. How and where you mount the balusters will also have an impact on total rail height, as demonstrated in the next section.
Project Note! It is always important to check with your local building department or municipality to obtain the most up-to-date information available.
