      Thank you I think I may have to have a professional to install these railings for me, as I don't want to purchase them and find out I can't get them to work

    After you select your railing there will be an instruction sheet provided by the manufacturer. Most are part of a system, made to work together, but most should be adaptable to your posts. From my experience, help for a specific application such as yours is hard to come by. We cannot see your job site and many choices must be made as you figure out how to make things work together.

    I recently installed an aluminum railing system in concrete stairs and mostly went well, but there are a few things I would have done differently. How to avoid that? Only answer I have is to hire someone who has done it before.
