Many compliments on our porch railing at Mountain cabin. Hard to believe it has been almost 10 years.

I submitted a CAD drawing with dimensions and angles. The railings were built to the specs. We love the way they look in our cabin.

I enjoyed working with James. He was very helpful and super responsive to all my questions as we went through the process. The quality, beauty, and true uniqueness of the laurel railings he built for my rock stairs in the back of my NC mountain cabin exceeded my expectations.

Received rails that were well packaged. Took a little planning to figure how to cut and mount, especially the corners with a 45 degree angle. All turned out well and am pleased with the final product.

I can't say enough good things about Mountain Laurel Handrails and James Pader. Not only are the handrails beautiful and exactly what we wanted, the customer service was also superlative. James was very responsive when I had questions about measurements and installation instructions. One of the rails was damaged in shipping and James immediately sent a replacement. The handrails definitely add the perfect final touch to our tree house.

These handrails really set off the rustic look in our cabin. I shopped around and although there are other companies that make a similar product, they were out of our price range. I was so happy to find these.

How To Measure For Stair Railings

Since each staircase is different, no two stair railings are the same. Each stair railing must be measured properly and precisely to ensure the best fit. Start by installing the posts at the top and bottom of the stairs. Measure up off the nosing of the tread 34.5″ for a 2x top cap or 35.25″ for a 1x top cap and make a mark on the posts. Tie a string to connect these marks on the top and bottom posts. Measure the length of the string between the posts and this is the long-to-short measurement. Check the angle of the string with a speed square and provide this number in degrees. Using a tape measure, put the end of the tape on a nosing of one tread and find the shortest measurement which will be perpendicular to the angle of the stairs. Check multiple treads and provide an average measurement, usually approximately one half inch shorter than the actual tight measurement.

  1. Mark posts top and bottom
  2. Tie a string
  3. Measure the length of the string
  4. Check the angle of the string
  5. Measure the height of the string perpendicular to the stairs

For stair railings, please provide the following information as shown in the drawing below:

  • Long to short measurement
  • Angle of the stairs in degrees
  • Section height measured perpendicular to the angle of the stairs not plumb. Take a framing square and rest it on the nosing of the treads and measure like the tongue of the square.
  • The side the section is on as you stand at the bottom of the stairs and look up.
