I have no idea where you are from, so I don't know what is available in your area.
If cost isn't so much an issue, use Ipe for top/bottom rail, balusters and handrail. Sorry about the last picture, but that's a 5-1/4 Ipe handrail, balusters are Ipe 2x2 painted white, bottom/top rail are Ipe as well. Base molding and the rest of the trim is milled Azek.Redwood, I work in the northeast.Long Island N.Y.

ipe is very dense and relatively stable. it does need to be sealed right away though. we had to re-do a couple of these caps as they weren't sealed in a timely fashion.Wow looks great. Only question is won't swelling and shrinking with weather changes be an issue
That would blow...they look great:thumbsup:we had to re-do a couple of these caps as they weren't sealed in a timely fashion.
