Replacing Porch Railing with New Materials
Front porch railing replacement sounds overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s all we do! We have helped thousands of professionals and homeowners all over North America replace their porch railings with beautiful results. Let’s take a look at one example here:
This Spokane, WA home was built around 1915 (see original photo). The original turned balusters were 100+ years old and in need of replacement. The owner wanted them replaced with a synthetic alternative without losing the original style and look. Plus, the historic commission was rather particular about what they used. We reproduced the original balusters in Polyurethane, which very closely mimics wood. In this way, the home was brought back to its former glory without losing the authentic look and feel.
The custom reproduction balusters used in this project measure 3 1/4 x 16″. They decided to use our standard 4 1/2″ Polyurethane Railing because it’s authentic style worked for the original look they were trying to achieve. They also used our 12 3/4″ Smooth Poly Newel Posts and cut them down to 24″ high.
