Check out our Information Center or keep reading to learn the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions that arise when installing porch railings.
Do I Need to Install Porch Rails on My Deck or Porch?
Regulations regarding porch railings can vary from state to state. In general, the International Residential Code (IRC) does require decks and porches to have some sort of railing system in order to pass inspection, but this is not always the case. Be sure to always check with your local building department before installing outdoor railings or balustrade systems.
Should I Install Porch Railing On My Deck or Porch Steps?
You'll want to check with your local building department before installing porch railing kits. But in general, you'll need to have porch handrails, guard rails or some form of porch railings installed on any open set of stairs that is more than 30 inches above ground level.
How Tall Should Porch Railings Be?
The IRC states that residential porch railings must be at least 36 inches in height when measured from the deck or porch surface to the top of the porch banister. Commercial decks or porches attached to multifamily dwellings (regulated by the International Building Code (IBC)) are required to have a 42-inch porch railing.
