I'm going to guess that if they can hold you up after six cocktails they are strong enough?
BlueRidgeGreen said:You know how people get. We figure every railing has to be at least strong enough for some drunk, uncoordinated moron to hang off of or fall into after 6 Long Islands.......even if he weighs 350. I personally haven't seen those days in a couple decades. Falling and such. They just look pretty stout and I have a deck I'm designing for myself where they would be perfect. Clean look and they seem like an easy install to boot. Been wanting to ask you. How do you find that the white composite decks hold up in terms of color and relative stain resistance?

ScipioAfricanus said:Why doesn't Trex keep up on the ESR reports I wonder? 1190 expired last year. Some AHJs will still accept but some will not. The only report I can find for Azek is a CCRR report, Costa Mesa does not want to accept that but San Clemente did. Andy.
ScipioAfricanus said:Well I think we could get the engineer to sign off on the ESR report because it is out of date but we may not have to. I will talk to MV BD before hand. By the way the flame spread on the Trex is under 200 making it class "C" fire rated which I think would be fine for the High fire hazard area it might or might not be in. Andy.
To be honest with you BlueRidge, I've never installed a white composite. Most white decking is a PVC. However, I hear they are very blinding, especially when your near lot of glass. There are a lot of good light colored cap stocks out there these days to choose from. My opinion is to stay somewhere in between dark and light. Because if it's too dark it will get scorching hot. That may not be a concern in other parts of the country but here in S. Cal it can get up to 107 degrees.

We shouldn't have problems with the Mission Viejo job will we, since we're getting engineering? By the way I'm meeting the HO in the morning to sign and I should be ready for you by Monday or Tuesday.
Well I signed a new contract this morning and my HO met me at a Starbucks in this
