How much is my project going to cost?

Determining an exact cost per foot for any horizontal cable railing is difficult at best. Overall costs will vary widely by project design and layout. The average cost per foot will fluctuate based on span lengths, rail height, and handrail selection. For example:

$92/ft* – $200/ft**

*20 foot straight run including two 36" end posts, 2 intermediate posts, 3 cable spacer bars, and cable - $1,836.50 material costs.
**4-foot section with 2 end posts, and cable only - $798.00 material costs.
