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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom 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.

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.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappy 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bec200 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
