Why Would You Need Railing Services in Portola Valley, San Mateo County?

In Portola Valley, part of San Mateo County, adherence to specific building codes related to railing installations is crucial for ensuring safety and compliance. Unlike some other counties, San Mateo County enforces particular regulations that are designed to address the unique topographical and environmental conditions prevalent in the area.

  1. Guard Rails: San Mateo County’s building codes mandate the installation of guard rails for any raised areas with a vertical drop of more than 30 inches. These guard rails must be a minimum of 42 inches high, a standard that is rigorously enforced in the county to prevent falls and enhance safety around steep or uneven terrain.
  2. Stair Rails: For staircases, the code in San Mateo County requires rails to be installed on stairs with more than four risers. The required height for these rails is set between 34 and 38 inches. This specification ensures that the rails are accessible and provide adequate support for safety, which is particularly important given the hilly landscapes in areas like Portola Valley.

Our railing services in Portola Valley are tailored to meet these specific county requirements, ensuring that every installation not only enhances the safety of your property but also adheres to local building codes. Whether you’re renovating an existing structure or building anew, our team of experts will guide you through the selection and installation process, ensuring that all safety measures are met with the highest standard of craftsmanship. Trust us to handle your railing needs with precision and care, ensuring compliance and security for your home or business.

Railing Systems

Cable Rail – Cable Rails are great option for a more modern look. Makes the space look more spacious. The cable makes little to no visual impact. This helps when you are not trying to obstruct a view off of a balcony or a fancy set of stairs. 

Glass Rail – Glass Rails are also a great addition for modern homes. Glass Rails have the same properties as cable rails when it comes to visual impact. Glass rails have an increased protection since there is no air space in the middle of the rail. There are many variations of Glass Rails that we offer.

Custom Rail – Custom Rails can range in style. We have designed custom rails that have more of a traditional look and feel or we can give it a modern twist. Do you have any reference rails that you have seen somewhere or any of the rails we have on our Gallery. We can design a rail with those designs for any need in your home.

Horizontal Rail – Horizontal Rails are a more traditional approach to rails with a contemporary look. There is more metal on a Horizontal Rail but it helps with the look and feel and will also help with the feeling of protection although all of rails are safe for all types of scenarios.

Etc… These are only a few examples. Feel free to check out our Gallery for more Railing Systems and examples of our work.
