Customer Questions & Answers

What is the actual length of the six foot sections?

I need 5 ft 10 in from wall to column just wondering if this would work or if I will need a bigger piece.
Asked by: catfish0104
68" is the max length of a 6' section.

PVC versus Composite

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 !
Asked by: Anonymous
I've actually looked at the 6' sections in store and they do NOT have aluminum insert. The 8' kit has aluminum insert in top rail only.

does top rail meet building codes for strenght, sometimes you need an aluminum inseert in the top rail

Asked by: gerry
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.

How far apart should the 4X4 posts be installed?

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.
Asked by: MadamB
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased two of these railings because I extended my deck and changed the configuration. 12 ye... I purchased two of these railings because I extended my deck and changed the configuration. 12 years ago I bought this same brand from home depot and I was able to use almost all my old railings. When I installed the new railing up to the post and put the old railing to the post there was a 1 1/2 inch height difference. The new balusters are much smaller. Luckily I had left over smaller sections of old railings which I was able to breakdown and place in the new railings. This should not have been the case. The railings are not 6x3. If I did not have the old balusters I would have had to tear all the railings down and buy the new ones. 12 railings at 50 each is pretty expensive. I would not recommend this product if someone is adding to a pre-existing structure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected If you are like me, your concerns about this modest priced rail is "is it cheap looking and lacks strength?". The answer is "NO". The quality is great and it literally transformed the front porch and steps/ramp to an elegant entry. Every item fit well purchased for assembly from brackets to slant of the stair rails for a ramp instead of steps.. I purchased the 4X4 post covers to slip over my treated lumber for both the short support posts and the 8' roof supports posts. I now have a permanent, strong entry. So don't worry about the price of these rails compared to the higher price rails. I cant imagine a better look or strength from a higher priced product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything but the brackets This comes already put together. Better than the railings at the "other" home improvement center because this railing has all the balusters. At the "other" place, you buy the balusters separately. Sure, you can get the ones you want... at a price. These sections from HD are easy to fit , level and plumb. Just make sure you understand these railings and their 8 foot counterparts are not exactly 6' and 8' - they may fit between 4x4 posts that are 6' and 8' on center, but measure carefully. You will have some wiggle room with the brackets, but not a whole lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, once you figure a system, if cutting is required I am on my third deck so I am an expert with this railing. I needed to cut every section which as of now will be my 18th railing to be installed. I found it easy but I have found it easiest to cut these railings after disassembling them. After they are apart it is easy to cut the lengths on my cutoff saw and re-assemble. Strong, economic and a whole lot better looking than my old painted and peeling railings, I would never use wood again. The trick to taking these railings apart are that the balusters on each end have a hole punched in them to keep the assembly together, I just drilled that hole with a larger drill bit thus enabling the end baluster to be taken off each railing thus the assembly will come apart easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a decent product Over the last year I've installed quite a few vinyl handrails. There are a lot of different brands and styles. This style was one of the easiest I've done, the only thing I didn't like was the brackets that attach to the post, but that hasn't strayed me away I'm about to order more. Time wise this handrail is one of the quickest after you do a section or two.
