Aluminum or vinyl railing /balusters for screened porch

dorry2January 13, 2013

Trying to decide between vinyl or aluminum railings for a screened porch. Interested in your opinions. Our contractor initially suggested aluminum, but has found the vinyl seems to clean up easier. I like the thinner look of the aluminum balusters, but easy cleaning is a priority. I might add this porch backs to woods, gnats are a problem in the humid summer and the porch will get filtered morning sun.

Thanks!
