    The one I just ballparked to a GC was $53.50 linear foot prime, paint, installed for approx 180'. I haven't heard back yet. After asking around it seems to be about the average here. The cheapest I heard of was $45 a foot.

    lmao!!! ive seen some walls that if the railing were square, then you'd have a hard time tryin to follow the rail, and it would have to be 6 ft tall to meet code cause it was leanin over that bad.........

    average, how much per foot are you charging...installed and painted.... i am about 60 to 70 bucks per foot on common guard/ handrail

    Because i,m not going to lug a bottle out of my shop to mig weld the joints when i can do it just as easily with 6011 stick.There where only a couple of connections also.If had 400' of railing to install i may switch to my spoolgun and a bottle and start migging but this was a small job not worth it.Also any wind in the field and your mig welding is going to look like crap.

    Looks pretty good. Nice job. Next they need to get some stops in place before somebody knocks it all down. Brick and all.
