Blend together Westbury Tuscany railing and Westbury VertiCable railing for a unique look!

Deck of the Month Winner: November 2019

it's your deck and you can have it all

We're carving up the turkey, snuggling in our sweaters, and starting to get cozy with cocoa; that must mean it's time to announce the Deck of the Month Winner for November 2019! Everyone here at DecksDirect wants to give a big, booming, "Congratulations!" to Dan and Catherine here in our home state of Minnesota.

Expertly blending together the classical looks of the Westbury Tuscany aluminum railing and the stunning modern style of the Westbury VertiCable vertical cable railing system, Dan and Catherine have created a beautiful-looking deck that is all their own. Multi-leveled and connecting to a free-standing structure, their gorgeous deck helps open their home out into the nature around them.

The Black Fine Texture finish of the Westbury Tuscany Rail Kits nearly fades from view to keep the backyard sights open and clear. All the while, the unique vertical lines of the the Westbury VertiCable Rail Sections help draw your eyes up to soak up the colorful trees throughout their home.

We asked the winners for any tips or tricks they learned along the way, they said,

"The most important thing is measure three or four times then carefully cut once! Install the longest rail sections first then progress to the shorter ones. That way if you cut a section too short you can still use it elsewhere down the line."

"In our case we set up the project on the upper deck so all the sections from the corner stairway in both directions were full-length and only the last section needed to be custom cut. Every section on the octagon was a custom length but there again we installed the longest first and worked around to the shortest."

Congratulations again, Catherine and Dan! You've given us some great inspiration to think outside of the box, work with an extra set of eyes when able, and to get creative with our deck and railing designs. Bravo and job very well done! We'll be sending some DecksDirect shirts, can koozies, and other swag your way today!
