You will have to do regular maintenance on your deck, including staining and sealing with a quality deck stain, at least every 2 or 3 years. Without the regular application of stains, sealers, or paint, wood decking is susceptible to warping, splintering, cracking, and rotting.

That depends.

Decks that are built higher than 30 inches off the ground will require a railing. Otherwise, a railing is optional. However, there are other reasons you may want to include a railing in your build, such as:

Aesthetic reasons:

  • Adds another layer of dimension and style to your deck

Functional reasons:

  • Keeps people from stepping off the edge of your deck into landscaping.

Practical reasons:

  • Makes guests feel more comfortable when closer to the edge of the deck and prevents young children from falling off.

It is always best to simply call your town building code office. Local municipalities have different requirements for deck construction and building permits. Please reach out to our expert team, and we'll be happy to help you with the permitting process should you need one.

Pressure-treated wood decks in Wilmington, NC last on average around 10-15 years depending on how well they are maintained. All decks are built with pressure-treated wood and will eventually need to be repaired or replaced, so it is important to take every step in protecting your deck with a high-quality stain.

Depending on the height of your deck, the protection of a guardrail is often a good idea.

Here are the typical requirements for guardrails and handrails for the Wilmington, NC area:


  • If the walking surface of the deck is 30-inches off the ground, your deck must be surrounded by guardrails which are a minimum of 36-inches in height. The steps for the deck must also have a handrail on one side if there are 4 or more individual risers (spaces between steps).

Stairs and Handrails:

  • Handrails need to be provided on at least one side of stairs with four or more risers. Handrails must be a minimum of 34" to 38" maximum above stairs. Handrails shall be continuous the full length of the stairs from a point directly above the lowest riser of the flight. Landings at the top and bottom of stairs need to be the same width as the stairs x 36" in the direction of travel.
