Depends a lot on how existing is built, and whether you are tyring to fit this in between existing support posts and such or doing a "free run" of standard factory length railing (except for cuts to fit length to corners of course). Can be as cheap as about $10-15/LF if just tearing off nailed on wood railing and putting up new factory lengths (5-10 LF each) along a now-bare exposed deck face - can run as high as $25-30/LF if trying to cut in between existing porch roof posts or such or deck has many corners or angles. I would expect something like $20/LF to be in the "normal" range without fitting between existing posts or where the posts just happen to fit a factory available vinyl railing length.


What you have for deck facing makes a significant difference too - if there is difficulty getting legal fastening for the posts in the railing so special hangers or brackets have to be used that ups the materials and labor cost both.


Deck and Porch would be your normal Search the List cateogry for this - Carpenter - Framing and Handymen also do this sort of work with varying workmanship depending on their experience and inclination.
