Goodbye Sliding Glass; Hello French Doors!

New Rails, just Like the Old.

A new client in Five Points had some old porch stair railings that were due for replacement. At first glance they seemed to be in decent shape, looking just fine from the street. But closer inspection revealed…a LOT of rot. …
