I have to replace a deck railing with pressure treated lumber and i priced it out at $1250.00 for two people working and there is 75 ft of railing to replace.
Does that sound right to anyone
Ryan you don't really give enough information for a proper reply...
We know what material you're using but how much?
What style of railing are you building, horizontal rails or vertical pickets etc?
How far between posts?
How are the posts connected to the deck?
Re and Re jobs always cost more than just building something where nothing existed. Dismantling the old rail could be time consuming depending on how it was constructed...
Does the bid include disposal like Plumberscrack asked?
That bid sounds low to me if it includes removal, material and labour.
Can you post more info?

If that includes the lumber and they do a decent job I'd say the price is good. Make sure that they treat the ends of any lumber they cut otherwise there is no point in using pressure treated lumber. I've found that most contractors(99%) will not treat the cut parts.
Where I live that price would be on the low end and easy to find someone to do it.
