No Deck? No Problem

RailPro can design and install bolt on balconies that range from a simple doorguard (consisting of a guardrail across a door) to a full walkout balcony. The major benefit of these balconies is eliminating the need to build a cantilevered structure on your house that typically requires waterproofing and future maintenance. Our aluminum balconies are light weight, will not rust, and never require painting; they are virtually maintenance free.

These balconies can utilize any of our rail styles and can be rectangular or radial. You design it, and we turn it into reality.

Full Balcony

As these are full walk-out structural balconies. They will require additional support that could be support arms under the balcony, tie back rods along the sides of the balcony, or corner columns that go to the ground.

Please note that this type of balcony usually requires engineering and in most cases not suitable for remodel construction unless you have the ability to alter the framing as needed for a safe installation or you have the ability to use support columns.
