Do you have a great view? There is really nothing worse than having a busy railing to block your view. Over the last 10 years, great strides have been made in the cable railing system. Fortunately, these systems pass code easily and reasonably. Installers can purchase them at local lumber yards or any place that sells decking supplies. Ricci Lumber in Portsmouth, NH is a great contractor supply house that I highly recommend (see Pat).
In this home in the photo it is located in a Historic District. I am proud to say that we were the first cable rail system passed in New Castle, NH! Now everyone gets a great view!
