Hardwood Deck & Composite Handrail
Various wood colors are available in composite handrails. The railing systems basically snap together and the posts are sleeves that go over wooden posts attached to the deck for structural strength. Normally, the actual top rail has some sculptured shape made in the extrusion process. This is a photo of a hardwood deck and a composite handrail. Except for glass this is the most expensive railing technique.
