Tips on Deck Renovation, Part 2: Installing Composite Deck Railings & Lattice

The posts are secure and now it's time to attach the railings. Using pre-cut baluster hole railings, you will first need to cut the railings to size. Mark the length of your rails, top and bottom. For the bottom, make sure there is equal distance on both ends for the posts. For the top railing subtract half an inch on each side for the brackets. Cut the railings to size. Insert the railings together by attaching the spindles. Slide the end caps on. Drill the pilot holes, and attach the flanges. Slide the railings into place, pressing them downward onto the flanges. Attach the post caps, and solar post caps for some accent light. To install the lattice cut it to size and install it under your deck with vinyl lattice screws.
