If your project includes restoring or building an old-fashioned porch, we offer a
wide selection of porch posts, balusters and railings and exterior
framed brackets that are consistent with the quality of our signature
screen and storm doors and hardware.
The porch parts we offer are
unsurpassed in quality and will impart the authentic and old-fashioned
feel and presence to your porch that porch parts made from modern
composite materials just cannot convey. If wood is your first choice,
these are the products to use.
Just like with our doors, the keys to
making wooden porch parts last are to select a stable wood that is
resistant to rot, insects and water, to finish it properly on all sides
and ends and to install it properly.
All the porch posts,
balusters and railings we offer are made from select, clear Western Red
turned posts and balusters are made from stock that has been
finger-jointed and laminated after voids and defects have been removed.
This preparation ensures maximum strength and stability and provides a
beautiful finish, devoid of splits and cracks you so often see in the
products stocked at lumberyards and home improvement stores. Our
architectural exterior framed brackets are made in our shop from
mahogany and, like our doors, are built to last.
provide us with a blueprint or sketch of your plans, and consult with
your building department for local codes on railing height and baluster
spacing, we can help you assemble your bill of materials and and be sure
that you have everything you need to make your project a success.
