My wife loves the look of the neighbor's balustrade around their patio. So much so, that she would like to put add one to the deck we are planning. I found a company called Fypon that makes a lightweight balustrade system. http://www.fypon.com/Products.htm
Unfortunately, when I checked the prices at the local lumberyard the balustrade could easily equal the price of our entire deck! Does anyone have any lower cost alternatives?
