This is a great product from Trex that is more cost conscious and still gives a great color to the deck. Unfortunately as we were to close to the air force base we could not take any drone shots. The railing is all metal and powder coated black. The rail is a simple 1x3 top rail, 1x2 bottom with 1/2" balusters that we fascia mounted for additional space and strength. You will also notice we used 4x4 metal posts to support the deck and give added strength!
