Clay’s Top 5 Rail-Building Tips
Make sure you have all the stuff you need to build — wood, screws, Trex, cuss words, beer, drill, etc.
Call the crew
You can do it alone, but having some help equals less cussin’ and more production! Plus, you’ll get to shred sooner.
Pump in your posts
Use a ballast pump to sink your posts. Attaching a four-foot PVC pole to the end of the pump hose will help you blast out a perfect hole for your post. “That’s what she said!” I know that’s what you pervs were thinking.
Keep it straight
To ensure a straight line, sink your first and last post and run a guideline in between.
Get out there and make it happen! It only takes a bit of effort to have a good solid rail that you can hit over and over again!
