Likewise, people ask, how do you cut a vinyl porch railing?

Place the top rail on a miter saw facing up. Hold the railing tight against the fence with one hand. Turn on the saw and cut the railing off at the marks on both ends. Do both rails the same way.

Can I build a deck directly on the ground?

Building an 8-by-10-Foot Floating Deck Floating decks can be set directly on the ground or, preferably, a bed of gravel. But it's best to support the deck on concrete blocks. This keeps the wood off the ground and away from moisture so the wood stays drier and lasts longer.
