Southern Front Porch
Many homeowners face the difficult decision to go with beautiful and authentic wood, or the low maintenance of synthetic railings. Our synthetic porch spindles and railings mean you can have both beauty and authenticity, and at the same time install a low maintenance balustrade. This southern front porch project used the 3 1/2 x 26″ Classic Spindle and 5 1/2″ Synthetic Porch Railing.
M.M. of Corinth, MS writes of this porch remodel project “Everything turned out great! The rails and spindles were perfect. The home owner are very pleased. Thanks so much helping me out in the ordering process. Thanks again.”
Many southern front porch owners are concerned about wood railings that can have a shorter lifespan in areas with plenty of heat and humidity. Our high density polyurethane products have the crisp clean lines of authentic milled wood, and also have a similar same weight and density to woods such as pine or cedar. And yet our synthetic rail will last much longer and need less maintenance, especially in more warm and humid climates.
On covered porches such as this one in Mississippi, a wood balustrade (rails and balusters) is often protected enough from the weather to last a long time. Sometimes this depends on which direction or directions the porch faces. Often times one side of the house will have more exposure to the sun or rain than the other. Or one side will be so shaded that it never really dries out, making mold rot a concern. If any of these of concern for your southern front porch, you might consider using our polyurethane rail system.
