Composite Railing suggestions for price comparison

alesm106October 24, 2012

Hi all. I plan on having a basic, rectangular 14x24 deck done soon and am having contractors come out for estimates.

I'm pretty much set on using TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions decking but I am up in the air with the railings and am looking at this area to help keep total cost down a bit. I'm perfectly fine with a basic/traditional looking railing, without any fancy decorative elements or anything (ex. metal ballusters or any lighting). I actually prefer basic looking railing with square ballusters.

Can anyone recommend any railing kits that aren't too pricey? From what I understand, the TimberTech Radiance Rail is on the pricey side.

I'm just looking for some good recommendations so I can look it up and also bring it up to the contractors for the estimate.

Is a railing like this on the expensive side?

I really like the solid/rectangular brown top rail and how it's a different color than the white part (that the ballusters connect to).

Thanks for any help.

Look for a vinyl or pvc railing.
