How to buy and estimate cost for Railing by The USA Vinyl Fence Company

When purchasing railing, ours come in 4 sizes:
    Vinyl Railing
  • 4' = 48"
  • 6' = 72"
  • 8' = 96"
  • 10' = 120"

    Aluminum Railing
  • 4' = 48.1875"
  • 6' = 70.5"
  • 8' = 97.25"
  • 10' = 119.5"

    The inches above show what the inside to inside dimension should be of your posts. Remember, both the vinyl and aluminum can be cut down on site to fit your custom opening. The above is for straight railing, for stair railing it will vary depending on your rise/run.

Our Pledge

We take the time to work with you by phone, and inspect all orders before they ship to make sure you've ordered what you'll need to complete your project the right way. If not, we'll contact you.

Planning Your Project

Step 1: Print the schematic above - you'll find this very useful as you proceed. You may want to print this page as well as a guide.

Record the Following Information:

  • Number of fence panels needed:
  • List of the number and type of posts you will need:

Tip: We do have gates for our railing sections - they come 60" wide, but are marked to be cut down to 48" wide or 36" wide. Depending on the gate hardware - you must measure your gate after you put it together and add the gate hardware variance to get your inside to inside dimension (example - railing gate is 48" wide and you need 2" for your gate hardware - your dimension will be 50"- read instructions for exact gate variance)

Placing an Order

Using the schematic and the steps above, you should better understand your railing sections and post needs. Simply browse our site for the railing style you want, select your posts and gates, add caps and skirts, and complete your order!
