Question

Railing Selection with TimberTech Earthwoods Decking


Greetings- We are about to have our deck re-planked with TimberTech Earthwoods Evolution. The wife and I love the colors of Pacific Teak (decking) and Pacific Walnut (picture frame).

We have decided to go with the Radiance Railing, but are having a hard time choosing a color. It would be nice if TT made railings in matching Earthwoods Evolution colors, but oh well.

We definitely want to go with the "Classic Black" balusters, but are having a hard time picking the colors of the rails, post and caps. Have any professional installers or homeowners used the decking color we went with? Would the Mountain Cedar match? How about Pacific Walnut- would that look better? We want to avoid the lighter colors, so I am thinking we are limited to those two colors in the Radiance Rail. Any suggestions based on personal experience?

Thanks very much!

Hey skinsfan44!
If you look on timbertech.com in the photo gallery (http://www.timbertech.com/design-too...s/default.aspx) you can actually see a photo of one of the combinations that you mentioned. The Earthwood Evolutions (in Pacific Teak and Pacific Walnut) is shown with Traditional Walnut Radiance Rail with Black Balusters.

skinsfan- We are deciding on our deck colors this week. We would love to see your pics. WE are also Pacific Teak with Pacific Walnut picture frame and our debating now on radiance rail colors.

We are either all black or traditional walnut with black balusters. Would love to get some feedback from you!!

Came out real nice. Wife wasn't convinced I was doing the right thing, but she ended up loving the look. Sorry the pics aren't too clear as they are from my phone. Don't have any closeups of the railing, but hopefully you get the look. We obviously went with the Walnut on top and bottom rail, black everywhere else. If you need better pics, let me know and I'll get the Cannon out and take some clearer ones for you.

To add a bit more, I don't think you could go wrong with either. I like how the walnut sort of matched the picture frame. But, I checked all black out before making my decision and think it would have looked fine as well. Good luck to you.

Not to be a debbie downer but the OP hasn't logged in since august of 2011.

It does look like your standard cedar lattice though.
