Composite Deck Screws

looks good. thats a ton of blocking you did and whats up with the handrail?

By the way, we pre-drill all the trex but only the trex and about 2/3rds down. Helps eliminate that mushroom effect of those screws.

theres a way to modify these things too to speed things up

Composite Deck Screws

I was wondering if anyone would notice the hand rail. It was the original one the builder put on. The wall that it's attached to used to be the only thing there. It seemed out of place. I (with several friends) poured the steps and my neighbor (a mason) and I built the block walls. That stub wall was just there. That hand rail is going to be replaced with a full length one and I'm going to turn the corner and come down both sides of the steps. I would like to know how you altered the spacers to speed things up.
Thanks again all,
