      Hi Barbie
      Thanks for inquiring about Mountain Laurel Handrails!

      No maintenance is required, if desired. The mountain laurel sticks and the cedar lumber both weather to a lovely silver color. If you are painting or staining the lumber on the railing, this will require periodic reapplication. Some people choose to have us apply a natural stain on the mountain laurel sticks which helps to preserve the natural reddish color. This also makes them darker, more red and gives them some shine.

      4×4 posts are no problem. We use a 1×4 for the lumber instead of a 2×4.

      Any length is fine; whatever your measurements are.

    Very nice website and I am applauding your work of art ! Being born and raised in the North Georgia mountains, I truly appreciate what you are doing. I am currently starting on a project in Blue Ridge, GA and would like a quote on 50 ft of railing as well as the turn around time once order is placed.
