Dear Customers, due to COVID-19 disruptions in production & shipping that are beyond our control, order fulfillment times may be delayed. We are in the process of bringing all our disrupted shipments back to a normal schedule. We appreciate your patience.
The beautiful and unique panel has the grace of iron railing with the body and substance of wood. Yet it will not rust like iron, or rot and twist like wood. They are made from 1″ thick solid cellular PVC. The Cathedral Scroll panel design is what launched The Porch Store.
Our panels are designed to be used with a number of different railing systems. Depending on which system you use, plan on adding approximately 7″ to the panel height to determine your finished rail height. (Typically between 30″ and 42″)
The Porch Store custom panels have the body and substance of wood without the character flaws or necessary maintenance. They are made from 1″, 1.25″ or 1.5″ thick solid cellular PVC.
Our panels are cut from sheets of cellular PVC. The core of the material may have slight variation in color from the finished exterior. This core is exposed as we cut out the design of the railing. The thicker the panel, the more likely that this discoloration will be visible. Generally this is faint enough that our clients don’t see this as a problem. The panels can be painted to resolve this matter if you so desire. And don’t worry—proper exterior house paint bonds to PVC extremely well—and you will not have the same maintenance as painted wood!
If you plan to install our 1.25″ or 1.5″ thick panels with the Timbertech rails that we sell, please specify in the drop down below. This will inform us if we need to cut small grooves on the top of the panels, to ensure they will fit with this system.
Panels generally ship within three to four weeks of order date.
Curbside Delivery is our standard method of shipment. You are required to meet the semi-truck in front of your home or at the closest point of access to your home, and you are responsible for receiving the product from the truck. Alternatively, the panels may be picked up by the client at the shipper’s local terminal.
