Also to know is, is cable railing more expensive?
Cable patio rails are going to be more affordable than other modern deck railings such as glass railings, provided those cables aren't attached to stainless steel or comparably expensive posts. However, while the installation process is also quite easy and straightforward, it's a bit time consuming.
Secondly, what is code for cable railing? In most states, the residential code is 36” high. There are some exceptions though like in California the required height for residential railing is 42” . On the other hand, the commercial International Building Code requires the railing to be at a minimum of 42” height.
Also question is, are cable railings safe?
Vertical stainless steel cable is a safe, easy-to-clean railing style that's perfect for homes with children. Fortunately, modern building codes are mandating railings be built with child safety in mind. There are also railing options that eliminate the risk of entrapment between railing balusters.
How much does it cost to install a composite railing?

In comparison, a pressure-treated wood deck costs $15 to $25 per square foot while a cedar wood deck starts at $30 per square foot.
