A Comprehensive Guide by Skretowski Siding Systems
Nestled within the delightful charm of South Jersey and the Jersey Shore, we at Skretowski Siding Systems understand the allure of a well-maintained, beautiful home. More than a safe retreat, a home embodies an investment, a reflection of your taste, and a space of comfort. It’s not surprising, then, that homeowners like us take pride in enhancing our homes and keeping them in top-notch condition.
While we have earned our reputation through superior siding and window installations, we also excel in the installation of railings and porch columns. If you’re considering a home improvement project to enhance safety, aesthetics, and functionality—especially if you’re dealing with worn-out, rotten wooden handrails, porch columns, and railings—let us guide you through the transformative journey of upgrading these essential features.

Railings & Columns: Safety Meets Aesthetics
The importance of railings and columns in a home goes far beyond their obvious safety features. Yes, they provide essential support and protection, especially on stairs and around porches. But more than that, they add an aesthetic charm that can elevate your home’s curb appeal.
Enjoy your bay views from your deck safely with new railings.
Carefully selected and quality-crafted railings and columns possess the transformative power to metamorphose a plain porch into an arresting outdoor sanctuary or morph a conventional staircase into an architectural masterpiece. They act as defining elements, adding an extra layer of refinement and sophistication to your home’s exterior.
However, while traditional wooden railings and columns often add a warm, rustic charm, they are prone to deterioration over time. Exposure to the elements and the passage of time can lead to rot and wear, diminishing their structural integrity and aesthetic allure. This not only raises safety concerns but also detracts from your home’s overall appeal. It’s this recognition of the limitations of wooden features that underscores the importance of considering durable, low-maintenance alternatives.
Replacing Wooden Features: A Wise Investment
Often, homeowners may opt for wooden railings and columns because of their classic, timeless appeal. However, wood comes with its fair share of maintenance requirements—it needs regular staining or painting to fend off rot and wear from the elements. When these wooden features begin to deteriorate, they can become both an eyesore and a potential safety hazard.
Replacing worn-out wooden railings, handrails, and porch columns with durable, low-maintenance materials can be a game-changer. This will reduce the time and money spent on upkeep and enhance your home’s safety, aesthetic appeal, and overall value.
