Balusters are an essential style point for your deck. Your railing can only look as great as the balusters will allow it. In other words, your choice of baluster can make or break the look of your railing project. DecksDirect has a massive selection of balusters as we are the largest stocking dealer of balusters from top brands. This means that, combined with our unparalleled customer service, you can be sure that you will make the correct choice of baluster and your balusters will ship to you quickly.

As we mentioned above, we are the largest stocking dealer of balusters. Meaning that we have balusters available from Afco, Deckorators, Dekor, The Fortess Company, Solutions, Tehk, TimberTech, Trex, Woodway and our own brand of DecksDirect balusters. With all of the different manufacturers you get a larger variation of styles, colors, and materials.

We have balusters in lengths from 23-3/4 inches all the way up to 48 inches and widths from 5/8 inches up to 4 inches, so you can customize in any length and width that you want. We offer Straight Balusters, and Architectural & Curved Balusters in case you want to have a more classical look. Our architectural and curved balusters are face mounted balusters meaning that they would go on the outside face of your top and bottom rail rather than being in-between the top and bottom rail.

DecksDirect also realizes that color and material are important when deciding which balusters to purchase. With that being said DecksDirect has balusters available in Aluminum, Steel, Synthetic & Vinyl, Glass, and Cedar. Material will matter if you are mixing wood and metal, or if you want a low-maintenance system you would use a synthetic or vinyl baluster. We have balusters available in many different colors including: Black, White, Bronze, Copper, Stainless, Browns & Tans, Red Tones, Greens, Grays, and Clear or Glass.

The best part about DecksDirect's balusters are that the vast majority of them are going to cost you less than $20, giving you the biggest bang for your buck! Don't hesitate to call us at anytime with any questions that you may have.
