Very happy with this product. Super sturdy. Followed advice of previous reviewer and purchased a saw blade to cut through metal due to the metal inside the top rail. I would say I'm a beginner DIYer and along with my fiancÃ© who had zero interest in the project, we were able to get 5 sections done in about 4 hours. (I've never installed rails before). My advice is to spend extra time installing posts (took me two days to level and attach properly) so that they are plum and level, this will save you time during the railing install. Pay special attention to your cuts and make sure you have equal spacing from your posts to your balusters. The balusters can only go in pre-spaced holes.

Rated 4 out of 5 Excellent product....BUT
It is NOT 8 feet long. It is 91 inches long. If your posts have 96 inches between them you have a problem.Other than this, It looks great. Easy to install and the price is fair.
I should mention... the rails shown as 6 feet long are not. Thet are 67 inches long. Don't install posts before you have rail sections in hand. You will end up doing double work.

This traditional rail kit was installed in my garage as a barrier for the stairs down into the basement. I am so pleased with it I an thinking about replacing the wooden railing on our back deck with the same thing.

My husband installed Traditional Rail Kit without difficulty and it is absolutley beautiful. My porch railing was in bad shape with old wood railing, now it is looking brand new. Please know there is some metal in the top and bottom rails, make sure you have a blade that cuts thru metal.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Budy Two bad features.
This product is overall a decent one. It is sturdy and fairly simple to use. However, I do have two complaints. One the rails do not fit the brackets, so that we had to grind down the edges of the rail to fit into the bracket. Very irritating. Number two, is that they put stickers, huge ones, on the sleevs, and the rails, and they are impossible to come off, in cold weather. We had to use finger nail polish remover to get them off. This was a big job, with over $1,200.00 dollars, in vinyl product, and it took us like two hours, to get all the dang stickers off.
