I chose Veranda Composite decking material to build
my new front steps and also the matching balusters and
railing system from Home Depot. The decking installation
went smoothly and I'm satisfied with its look and ease
of installation. However, when I started to look at the railing
system, I found a problem. The reversible handrail sold
at H. Depot is nearly flat board, with a slight indent on one
side to accept the balusters. When checking the veranda
decking web site, all information shows a L-shaped railing
system - not what was sold in the store. I can easily
see how the L-shaped railing would fit the balusters, but
mine has no flat surface to set a screw through and secure
the baluster. I know this is not helpful if you are not familiar
with the products, but I'm hoping someone is. I went back
to H Depot and showed the lumber guy and he told me, "You
got me...I'm stumped." Great help there. I can send anyone
who is willing to give it a look a digital photo or two. Anyone
use this presumably older style material to build a railing?
I emailed Veranda directly, but so far no response.
