Custom Porch Rail Profile

“Custom” doesn’t always mean re-inventing the wheel.  We worked with this customer in Edwardsville, IL to modify our standard 6″ class 4-piece Porch Rail System to his liking.

For the handrail, it uses our Sloped Bottom Rail as a top rail and adds a couple custom trim pieces below the top rail.  The trim pieces simply attach to the sides of the spindles, giving the top rail a thicker look.

For the bottom rail, we used the standard Sloped Bottom Rail, but added an additional skirt.  They wanted a “beefier” look, so instead of the single skirt under the bottom rail we used two.

The spindles are the standard 2 1/2 x 26″ Victorian in Western Cedar.
