Answer: 
They are NOT 6 feet long, period. I actually counted on them being 6 ft. EVEN with the hardware, they are still WELL under 6 feet, as the hardware only adds about 1/8th - 3/16th of an inch on each end. I bought two, and had to return them - they were too short for a 69 1/8 inch opening (by an inch).

The 6' railing section is 68" with the hardware installed. I made a pattern board out of a piece of 3/4" stock as a spacer for my posts and it worked great.

Answer: 
As far as I know (and read) this railing meets the standards if installed correctly. The top rail on the six foot model is reinforced. I believe that an 8' section needs an aluminum insert. But I would use the 6' sections because I believe the 8' sections wouldn't meet the code in some areas.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your question. Yes, all components of this railing are code approved when properly installed. Some railings do have metal support inside, but this is a PolyComposite that is much stronger than traditional vinyl. This product is stocked in many stores if you'd like to see how strong it is in person.

Dear Gerry: Yes, Veranda rails are made from a very strong composite plastic, not vinyl as noted in the summary. They are stronger than standard 2x4 wood rails. This is an excellent product.
You should also take a look at the Veranda rail kits, which do not require the 'pocket' brackets and covers at the end of each rail. Although they are not 'pre-assembled', it is actually easier to install the bottom rail first, then the top rail. Plus no visible bracket fittings at the end of both rails.
I hope this is helpful.

How far apart should the 4X4 posts be installed?

This question is from 6 ft. x 36 in. Traditional Pre-Built Rail Kit without Brackets
Asked by
Tioga, Texas
Read all my Q&A
March 31, 2016
I am having a deck built. The 4X4 posts will be set in concrete footings. I want to install 6' vinyl railings with post covers. Exactly how far apart must the posts be set to use the stock railings? And how high should the posts rise above the deck to use the post covers? I would like to do as little cutting as possible; however if the last section is short of 6', can I cut these to fit? Please help so I can give the contractors exact specification before they start the deck.

Answer: 
Be careful. By my calculations, the posts should be on 71 1/2 inch centers. The railings are 67.75. Adding .25 for expansion, that means an opening of 68 inches is needed. Two 4x4 posts on 71 1/2 inch centers will give you this gap.

Answer: 
Install on 72" centers. The panels are 68" long. I cut my posts at 38" in height above the flooring.
You can cut these to fit, use a bungee cord to hold railing section together if you cut off a baluster.

PVC versus Composite

This question is from 6 ft. x 36 in. Traditional Pre-Built Rail Kit without Brackets
Asked by

October 13, 2014
The Veranda Traditional Pre-Built PVC railing is less expensive than the Veranda Regency Composite railing. From this pricing, is it safe to assume that Composite is of better quality/durability than the PVC? Or is there some reason to select one over the other without regard to pricing? Thanks !

Egret, let me re-phrase my question: Traditional and Regency both come in 6' and 8' sections. Regency is more expensive than Traditional. Is it the Regency that has the aluminum reinforcement on the top rail in the 6' and 8' sections? And that is why Regency is more expensive? Thank you.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Looking Product We chose this railing for the ease of installation, but fell in love with how beautiful it is. Chose to use contrasting color post sleeves to match my Trex Enhance deck. Very happy with the results. Pops and myself installed 12 panels in just 1 day! Used a 10" composite blade on a miter saw to trim the ends. Start with the largest opening so if you make a mistake measuring, you can re-use in a smaller opening. IMPORTANT: End balusters keep the railing together as a unit. Use a bungee cord to hold railing together if you cut off a baluster on either end. This keeps the railing together till you install it. Saves you a big headache. :) June 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice product I love the railings. However, the information needs to be corrected on your web page. Among the questions answered about this product is how far apart are the posts to be placed. The answer is reported as 72" So, I set my posts at 72" apart. However, when I received my railings, it is noted on the package that the "actual length" is 67.75". I had to remove the anchors from my concrete porch and then re-drill and reset the posts. While I am not a happy camper about all the extra work and mess, I still like the pre-built rail kit without brackets. June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I just completed installation of this railing system. My wife and I love it. It looks great and installation was straight forward. I see some negative comments about this item mentioning wrong dimensions and not up to code which are completely wrong. I'm sorry to say that the people who wrote this are inexperienced or not interested in details. If you click on the specifications tab the dimensions are displayed correctly. One writer doesn't understand that the 36" height is measured from the deck to the top of the rail, (not the width of the railing) etc. I love this product and it has made a nice improvement in my home. I used my own set up for the posts. I didn't like the post kits. I installed on concrete patio and porch. May 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vinyl porch rail Good quality, very solid when installed. I was disappointed that the description measurement didn't match the product. An 8-foot porch railing should be 8 feet long; it was 7 feet 6 inches. I was able to add pieces at either end to account for the shorter length, but expected a full 8 feet. June 11, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by When is 6 foot only 5' 8" ? In spite of how they are labeled, they are NOT 6 feet long, period. I actually counted on them being 6 feet long, as I had measured the distance to fill at just a couple of inches shy of 6 feet. EVEN with the hardware, they were and are WELL under 6 feet - the hardware cannot be measured in its entirety, it only adds about 1/8th - 3/16th of an inch on each end. I bought two six-foot rail sections, and had to return them - they were too short for a couple of 69 1/8 inch opening (by an inch). By that time, I was already well into my 'weekend project', and had to take time out in the middle of the project to return these, and get 8' sections (also not 'quite' 8 feet) and cut them down by almost two feet. In general - Good materials (not great), I believe that the 'bottom rail' is too flimsy, and should be made of the same material as the top rail. Don't put any weight on the bottom rail (i.e., don't put your foot on it and lean over), it will not take it. June 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Totally misleading! I just received my order of nearly $1000 of this railing Only to realize I have to put a 2x6 plus 4 inches of of air space under it to bring it up high enough to meet code. The actual height is 2 3/4 inches less than the headline description. The length? Yes, that is 3 1/4 inches shorter than the headline length of 6 feet. Read the fine print before some code inspector has you pull out all your brand new rail. May 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by actually not as hard to install as I thought it might be, and I am a 63 year old woman who works a desk job thought it would be much harder, though getting started with directions was a bit of a challenge, but once I stepped back and did one step at a time put the whole thing together in one weekend October 13, 2015
