Making the most of your money with something little


Your backyard deck is calling for you this time of year. They are the perfect place to relax and unwind or to entertain your neighbors and friends on gorgeous summer nights.

Today’s decks offer property owners a comfy place to spend time with the family. As a home improvement it offers a solid return on your investment, and a new or upgraded deck ranks near the top of the list, behind only kitchen and bath remodels.

The biggest trend we are seeing this summer is add-ons, including different styles of outdoor lighting. If you have been reading this blog then you know that Great Railing specializes in solar lighting but what about the other lighting options out there.

Exceptional styles, like tiny, recessed LEDs for the edges of decks, LED strips for running underneath a rail, or lights with remote control dimming, have a propensity to get customers eager about the finished product.

“Not every customer is building the sophisticated dream deck, but every customer is concerned about prices these days. That transforms into quality material and attention to detail that make a deck come to life whether it be day or night,” says Great Railing owner Mario Conlin.

Great Railing has found that simple lighting can set one deck apart from another. Great Railing uses only state of the art top-notch LED bulbs and Aurora is one of the nation’s leaders in the design and manufacture of deck lighting, and the company says their business has remained steady even during the latest economic downturn.

“Today Customers need to get the most of the money and value and what better way to do so then buy energy efficient lighting like Aurora lighting.” says Conlin.

Great Railing has done a lot of research on lighting and over the years we have installed a lot of traditional lighting and solar lighting. If you stop by our showroom or our website you will see outdoor lighting ideas. Visit
