Flat rates for handrails for Cyprexx

Just wondering who includes the hand rails in the initial because they were told by cyprexx. Because I found out this weekend that this is not the case, Cyprexx will pay for railing and it is $2.oo per LF. They tell us this because the can cut cost to us for thebank. Once I found out from a rep I was not a happy camper. He also asked to not mention his name so he does not get in trouble.

WOW. Sounds like you have a sneaky rep at cyprexx. We charge them $9.00 per linear foot. That is even listed in their handbook at $9.00

That's a typo isn't it? You meant either $12 or $20?

nope Cyprexx is super cheap and only pay 8 to 9 for handles! Waiting for them to add hand rails,tires, and paint to flat rate! They seem to be getting cheaper by the month!

I get $7 to $10 per LF. Depends on difficulty.

Tires are $7 and up depending on size.

Paint, oil, etc. is $7 per gallon. I pointed out that there is not a legal dumping site for this in my county and I have to get creative to dispose of it correctly, which I do, so they pay me what I ask.

re

I hope that $2/lf is a typo because around here an 8' fir handrail cost $11 add in 2x $2.29 for hardware and your barely breaking even.

Now I learned a long time ago its worth my time to mill my own handrails. Take scrap 2x4's rip em in half and run em down the router table and voala. In about 2 hours I can bust out about 100.

All they want it a slapped together temporary fall barrier made out of 2x4s. Top rail at 36" above the floor/steps and a mid rail at 18". simple and fast.

That may be so. I have a problem however, with my trucks in front of a property, cobbling up a railing out of rough unpainted 2x4s for all the world to see. That is bad advertising.

Not only is it bad advertising, its also a liability. When you construct a handrail or guardrail, it is meant to be exactly that. When it doesn't meet the code requirements for lateral stability, spindle spacing or height, who do you think is at fault when little Johnny or Suzy falls and breaks their arm??
