Yes. $28K in 2005. Would be at least 20% more today in the Seattle area market.

Vinyl tends to degrade over time, becomes brittle. Stainless steel will last for decades. Another source for CableRail is Feeney, Inc.

Century Aluminum Railings
A consideration might be to research the Tempered Glass And Aluminum Railings. We are a manufacturer of aluminum railings for both Canada and the USA.
The preferred type of railing seems to be aluminum due to the maintenance free aspect. The railings will never rust and have a powder coated finish which is your best bet against all forms of the elements.

Century Railings are 100% Do-Yourself-Friendly and can be installed by the homeowner on a weekend.

Our product you may want to consider is called Century Railings. Available in Canada at Lowes in the Western Provinces as well as numerous lumberyards. Also available on line at www.centuryaluminuminc.com. Toll Free (800) 493-1103.
