    Hi All, I had previously posted (https://www.diychatroom.com/f19/updating-modernizing-interior-railing-repost-pics-697301/), on updating this railing and have since decided to remove the wrought iron decorative crap you can see in this photo below, paint the steel railing structure flat black...

    I have a handrail that is loose and it wobbles when I hang on to the white post. Does anyone have suggestions on the best way to secure it? Please see attached picture.

    Hi, I live in NYC and just purchased a home. I am wondering if a handrail or guardrail is required on this set of stairs? I am not sure if the most up to date code requires a handrail for a set of stairs that only has two risers. They connect and entry landing and the kitchen floor seen in the...

    How to attach 2 round pipes side by side? There has got to be a bracket or something out there. I have an umbrella that I want to attach to a round pool handrail. Round pipe next to round pipe. Needs not rotate when the wind blows. Don’t want to damage handrail. Needs to be removable in the...

    I need to place a handrail on my basement staircase. On one side, the wall goes about half-way down before it ends and opens up to the room, so a handrail mounted here would end half-way down the stairs. The other side is solid from top to bottom of the staircase, but at the floor level of the...

    I'm FINALLY getting my deck done and trying to find a handrail system for my new deck. I originally wanted to use 2x4's and a 5/4 x 6 top cap with belly ballusters; but that will far excede my budget; so I've been shopping around for an alternative. I found someone liquidating some 12' Fiberon...

    According to wikipedia, the appropriate hand rail strength is 50 plf (pounds linear foot) with an active load of 200 plf. That makes sense, about the weight of a person. However, I can't find any calculators to tell me the span or wood I'd need to do this. We're putting a handrail along our...

    Hi, here is a picture of my situation. take a look now and I'll try to explain it. The proposed balustrade ( in red ) is to be installed over a "flight cap" or whatever that is called. The problem is that it sits directly below the ceiling and their is not a lot of clearance as you get to the...

    I'm installing a stairway handrail onto a half-inch-plaster surface using brackets. There are unusually wide studs in the basement stairwell for some reason, so the screws in a 3-hole bracket will all go into the stud with no problem. And the studs are very deep, so I will be able to penetrate...

    I've got a very narrow stairway leading to my basement, with concrete walls on each side. (It's a 1936 home.) There is no way to get a rail long enough for the stairwell into the space. I assume I need to cut the rail in two and then reassemble it, but what's the best way to do that?

    Greetings: We need to attach custom wrought iron stair rails to a home with vinyl siding. We've read the post about attaching light items but need some advice about heavy items. The stair rail base(s) will be bolted to concrete at the bottom of the stairs and bolted to brick at the top ofthe...
