Porch post replacement

SugarbuggaOctober 22, 2012


This is my first porch repair, and my first post here :o)

This question might seem a bit silly, but how do you unscrew the railing from the porch post if you can't find the screw holes?

We would like to replace the post, but without ruining the railing.

Picture is attached for visual reference.

Thanks for any help!

Take a reciprocating saw and slide the blade down, along the post. It'll cut off whatever hardware is holding the railing to the post.
