Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edieb EXCELLENT QUALITY
Weatherables Bellaire is a deck/porch railing system that offers an unusual eye-catching combination of rails and spindles. The top and bottom rails are made of tough molded thick vinyl that encases an aluminum insert.for rigidity. The spindles are black round textured aluminum. The kit comes disassembled. The rails and brackets in one box and the spindles in another. After you get the hang of it, it goes together fairly quickly. This kit is an 8' straight rail with mounting brackets included. The railing can be cut with a good sharp saw blade for a custom fit. Additional brackets are available for purchase. All in all, this railing system offers an attractive, trouble free, sturdy and long lasting alternative for adding form and function to an outdoor space. Good job Weatherables!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RWH strong but pretty
The fencing is strong and pretty (surprise!). We're using this fencing to cordon off a flower garden area in our backyard. Our house is about a hundred and twelve years old; were s late Victorian look. The fencing isomers, obviously, yet it still complements our home nicely (it's white with black shutters, then colorful porch and railing). The simplicity of the fence design keeps the focus on the garden ants, but in an attractive way. Erecting and securing the fence wad no problem. Just a few minutes. And it seems durable, SD SO now we can turn to the other items on our long list of d-home-maintenance!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bhcdiy Very Impressive Good Quality Built Railing Kit---
We used this 8" vinyl railing kit on our patio. We have an opening and 4" sections on each side,so we cut this unit in half and mounted each section to the tiled floor with a metal baseplate bracket and put 4x4 posts on the brackets then used the white vinyl sleeves over the 4x4 posts and it turned out beautiful! The sleeves come with a base and top cap so it hides the metal base plate. The vinyl railing also comes with a metal insert in the top rail and bottom rail which gives a very nice heavy support system. The company that makes this unit(Weatherables) has done a top notch job with this product. I have never seem a railing system built so well, usually it's just all vinyl. The instructions are written very clear and pictures are included to help with each step. The complete 8' and 6' kits have made our patio look very attractive and modern. We will enjoy this maintenance free vinyl system for many years

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyman Amazing product
I purchased this fencing kit to replace the old railing on my deck. It was a do it yourself project and I can't say enough about how pleased I am with this product. It was shipped to my home within days of my ordering it. It is extremely sturdy and east to install once you get the hang of it and as you can see from the photos, it is beautiful. I contacted USA Vinyl the manufacturer several times and they were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I spoke with Mike and he was a great guy to deal with, absolutely great customer service. There are no CONS for this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JBCMH Outstanding customer service
This review pertains primarily to customer service from USA Vinyl, because I have not yet had a chance to install the railings. I will say that out of the box they look very well made. I will update the review after I complete my project when the weather warms back up.
On Sat, 10/24/15, I was considering ordering the Bellaire railing and accessories, and there was a sale on the Home Depot web site running only through the weekend. I had some questions about installation before I committed to purchasing. So I sent an email to the general 'info' email address listed at USA Vinyl's website, weatherables.com. I really expected no reply, particularly since it was Saturday and the business does not have Saturday hours.
My email was sent at 11:47 AM, and much to my surprise I received a reply from Mike at 12:53 PM. We then exchanged several messages in which he answered all of my questions, and I placed the order. It also turned out that I needed a special angle bracket for my installation, which was not available via the Home Depot site. Mike had me send him the order confirmation, and he made sure that these brackets were added to my order.
After the shipment arrived, and I started my project, I discovered I had made a mistake in my order, and needed to exchange one railing section for a shorter section. Mike helped me get this done easily, and even gave me the sale price on the shorter rail section that had been in effect at the time I placed the order. Later, I found I needed some additional materials, and again ordered directly through Mike, and it was very easy. Also, I live in Columbus, and their warehouse is in Groveport, so I was able to pick up my subsequent orders easily and efficiently at that site.
Everyone at USA Vinyl, and especially Mike, was very helpful and incredibly responsive. Some of the best customer service I've experienced, at a time when such a concept seems to be in very short supply.
So, 5 stars so far, based on the customer service experience. I will post another review on the product itself after I complete my project.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie Beautiful strong railing with cheap aggravating 2 piece bracket covers.
This railing kit looks really great. It cut easily and the brackets were easy to use. The cheap flimsy bracket covers are a pain right square in the butt. They don't like to line up correctly. A one piece design I have seen on other railing is much nicer with no seam between the brackets. The seam collects all the dirt and pollen in the air and is a nice spot for algae to grow. A little more thought on design could make this railing kit much better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kanadays Mike @ Weatherables = Customer Service
The products i purchased arrived quickly and damage free. Installation was time as advertised and easy enough to complete alone. The rails look great and can't wait til next year when I don't have to paint. But by far the best part of my experience was the customer service from Mike @ Weatherables. He even corrected problems that I created. I wished more companies had employees like this!

Much better than plain wood deck railing. Amazing look. A little difficult to assemble but not that bad.
