Baluster Information   (see list of topics below)

Balusters - Upright, evenly spaced items between top and bottom rails.
Rails and Balusters create Balustrade sections.

A crisp row of orderly Balusters defines a porch as nothing else can! Use our Balustrade Installation System to install professional, easy to build porch, deck, and balcony balustrades.

Large Selection
We offer a large variety of quality wood and synthetic Balusters. Size and type is mostly a matter of personal choice. For example, do you want a light and airy balustrade or do you prefer something more substantial? Is yours a Craftsman style home that would be best with Plain Square Balusters or do you have a Victorian style home that typically features Turned Balusters? At Vintage Woodworks you have choices!
