Blade for composite deck railing


I am getting ready to install a composite deck railing system. I bought a Makita 10" miter saw that came with a carbide tipped blade. I do not know the teeth count. Do I need a special blade for the Timbertech composite rail, so I get a clean cut and not ruin the outer layer? Thanks.

I suggest that you call the customer support number for the final answer.

That being said---Any good carbide blade will make a clean cut in timber tec---The product will gum up the blade after a while---Be smart and have a spare blade waiting.----Mike---

Just for everyone's info, TT said to use a fine tooth blade. Carbide is nice, but not necessary.
