Lowe's Severe Weather porch posts

chr_22September 19, 2009

I just purchased parts to put up a small porch railing and short stair railing from Lowe's. The posts are 4 feet tall and for the little concrete porch I have that is way too tall. Can I cut these composite posts down to a shorter size? What height should they be for a small entry porch?

Thanks for your help!

Code says 36" tall. Cut away!
