   70% of all decks built in the U.S are constructed using wood. When using man made materials such as vinyl,composites or metals, connecting rail to post is done with a custom made rail connector. But what to use when connecting wood to wood? The answer - the Railing connector from Deckorators or Solutions.

In addition these connectors speed up the installation time and cure the issue of expansion at these joints.
