We're installing a front porch and rear deck with Trex and want a no-
maintenance white railing. Don't like the look of vinyl so am
wondering how any of you folks have fared with the Trex railing
system. Is there a lower-priced alternative out there?
Our condo has used natural/gray trex for railings. OK on the no
maintenance side, not great for looks or feel. I would be hesitant to
use white, due to handprints and dirt accumulating. Our condo is white,
with green trim but for balconies and stairways, which have always been
gray. The plain trex weathers to the same gray as the paint used on
ballusters and stairs, so it works for us. The doofus who installed it
put screws all the way through, so the screw heads are on top surface of
the railings. We also have gray Trex on our finger-dock; great stuff.
