Well, I posted a very long time ago about having a deck built.

I had a builder do the ledger, beam and outside box of the deck. I am doing the rest.

My question is regarding the railing. We are going to use railing that comes in 6' sections.(Vinyl coated) Here's the scenario: All of the sides where the railing will be are not divisible by 72". I have accounted for the ledger(1 1/2") the rim joist(1 1/2") and the posts (4"x4") When I subtract all of those from the total length and divide by 72 I get approx. 3.2, for example. Meaning that I will need 3.2 sections of the railing to cover one area.

My question is: How do I space the railing properly so that I do not have an excessive amount of waste. This stuff is expensive?

Probably a dumb question, but it is baffling me!

Thanks everyone! -Steve
