Rated 5 out of 5Â by Texas123 Base Trim Works Great
These work just as designed. Make sure you install them before you install the rail kit otherwise you will have to remove the rail to get them on, I only did this once :)
I installed Veranda Pro Rail around my entire patio and down my patio stairs. Normally the Pro Rail is used with the 5x5 post covers but I preferred the look of the smaller post and since all of my corners were 90 degree I could use the 4x4 post/cover. Everything worked as designed and the finished product looks wonderful. The install did take longer than I anticipated but we got faster as we gained experience. Remember this is a plastic/PVC product and all the screws go into plastic so you need to be careful not to over tighten (I also pre-drilled and ended up going through a couple of the square drive bits). Once everything is assembled the railing is very sturdy, some of my railings were just under the maximum length and even those feel sturdy. Since none of this product is stocked locally I was concerned that if I messed something up I would have to reorder and wait for it to arrive, by following the instructions (they were included) and being very careful everything worked fine. I did call Veranda with a couple of questions, once before I placed my order and once during installation, their support people were easy to reach and very knowledgeable about the product. Using this railing system was much less expensive than wrought iron, I believe it looks much better and it will never need painting, of course the big reason it was less expensive is my wife and I had to install it ourselves.

Love the way this looks. We paired this base trim with the New England top and it looks sharp! Helps to cover and hide the cement irregulaties at the post base. A win, win!

I purchased several of these white New England base trims to go with the rail kit. Adds a nice touch to your vinyl white sleeve when you purchase the entire kit.

There is total confusion over what "4X4" means. Some websites say it means an actual measurement of 4 in X 4 in, others say it means an actual measurement of 3.5 in X 3.5 in. Home Depot flops around somewhere in the middle.
