    Default Another small deck railing

    I just finished another small 2nd floor deck rail job. Uneven stucco caused me a few problems but the job came out great, per the customer. I am attaching some pictures. The two rail sections on the half wall are about 7 ft long each. The long section with the center post is approx 12 ft long. This is a very nice home in a very elite part of town and the job brought $1500.
    The only reason I mention the price is to give those who have previously asked what they can get for a job. Remember...location, location, location.

    I'll agree some but he already had a bid and I had to be close. But....I got to drink a lot of beer doing it.

    Default Railing

    Very nice work. It really dresses up the balcony.
    Did the price include installation? I like to try and keep the installation separate and charge my shop rate by hour for whatever it takes.
    I'm assuming that you painted the railing. What is your paint application routine and brand. I have been using two coats of Rustoleum primer and one or two finish coats. We have spray painted a few jobs with hardware chain rust preventative paint and they have held up very well over the years.
    Thanks for sharing.
