Very nice Jim. You have to love those quick “in & out” jobs. Fast money in the pocket.
Unless the “friend discount” was involved….
Then I hope there was some good food involved, bbq maybe…..haha

Hey Jim, looks good.

It’s funny how I stuck my nose up all those years at PVC trim and stair railings. But it seems like they’ve gotten a lot better and I have to admit, the very low maintenance is nice.

I installed a Timberline rail system on a flat roof garage a few years ago. It was prefinished white and made of 1/4” thick resin. More expensive than the PVC but it’s hard to tell from real wood and no visible brackets.

thanks for sharing.

Thanks Gary
No working for dinner here it’s all about making a living.

Looks good Mark ,I was the same way ,I preferred wood but I didn’t like the trouble of painting it.

Jim nice job. I’ve grown to love the PVC railings as well. I prefer the ones with a metal core. Makes me feel better when I drunken 300 pounder falls into it lol. Take a look at TAM-RAIL. Tamco roofing makes it. I actually like them
