My Husband just got done installing these. We ordered 6 and all of them were in great condition. We had no issues installing, but with that said, they are not like the deck railings sold in store, as these are Not put together and though easy enough to do and the enclosed instructions are easy to follow, you would need some level of handyman skills to get it done. They look of great quality to me and all my neighbors love them. We choose to glue the top rail on and not to use the enclosed screws as the deck railing tops that match are glued and wanted a consistent look. A++++++
Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Light Weight, Good Shape

added a rough cut open beam covered deck to my cabin product is very nice looking and goes with the overall look very well,instructions are straight foreward and assembly was very easy the only thing that was a problem were the screws that attach the two top rails together are to long they came through the top caught this on first rail used shorter ones that i had and they went together great.
Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish, Good Shape

I don't like how we had no choice other than to order online in order to be able to get the stair railing to match the regular railing they already sell in store, which mean't we had to put it together but my husband handled that with no trouble at all.
Pros: Easy to Install, Stylish

THis is a great upgrade option over pressure treated spindles. My deck looks into the woods and the thin black spindles blend into the background. I couldnt afford custom railings and my olnly option was this system or pressure treated. The PT spindles are very bright and significantly thicker that the aluminum ones. VERY happy with this purchase and now my brother is changing his older PT railings to this system.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Stylish, Light Weight, less maintenance

No, I do not recommend this product.
First, have it shipped to the store if you decide to purchase this railing. That way you can refuse it when the ends of them are smashed. UPS just leaves them on your porch. I ordered two sets. One of them didn't have the top rail mitered. Since I was trimming that was more of a pain than anything. One side the holes weren't drilled in the center for the spindles. Being kilned dried after treating didn't help much either. Three of the four rails (2 upper and 1 lower) were not very straight. I had to use clamps just to get them to sit in the top rail and screw them together. If you are not very handy, stay away. If you don't mind reworking them, they do look nice when completed.
Pros: Stylish
Cons: poor workmanship, kiln drying after treatment makes no difference

Order was delivered by LTL freight truck in less than estimated delivery time. Stair railing is made from white pine wood and it is treated with a green tint preserve.Color does not match 14 red tone pine straight railing sections which were purchased instore. I stained them to match the straight sections red tone tint. This pine wood is very hard for some reason. Must pre drill all holes to make screwing easier. I ordered 6 sections for a 14 ft deck stairway. 2 sections had warped top railings. Had to straighten, glue, screw and clamp. These railing systems were used in conjunction with composite decking and redwood posts.. These railings were less expensive than those made from composite materials and more convenient than building from scratch. Just completed project and have received numerous compliments.
Pros: Stylish
Cons: Poor Color
