Deck construction FAQs
Composite railings (like the Classic Composite Series by Timbertech) are a solid hybrid style railing that is usually formed with plastics and wood fibers to make a solid railing that looks and feels more like too up close. They can be more scratch resistant than some vinyl options and can often come in colors that can closely match your decking.
Vinyl railings (like the RDI Titan Pro Rail) are usually a preformed PVC that is hollow inside but supported with a steel or aluminum frame. This makes their strength not an issue. Vinyl railings are generally more cost effective than the composite options, but some people consider vinyl to be less aesthetically pleasing compared to the composite options. So, it really comes down to your budget and personal preference.

Neither material is “better” than the other, so it depends on what works best for your budget and needs. If your deck is going to be up against harsh elements, do you want something that lasts lower maintenance and lower longer-term cost over its lifetime? Then perhaps the composite is a good fit for you if your budget allows it.

"The Almar team is a pleasure to work with. From answering our calls, to putting together a construction plan to doing the work they were professional, innovative and reliable. Their work is amazing, their prices are fair and they get the job done. We have now used them several times for a new deck, a sunroom addition and several other smaller projects and are looking forward to using them again. We trust them and recommend them to all our friends and neighbors!"
