Rhododendron, a member of the azalea family, grows densely on the mountainsides of Western North Carolina, and is known for its strength and unique visual character. Rhododendron grows in beautiful twists and turns, and we take advantage of this quality in our rustic railing systems by interweaving pieces of rhododendron between a top and bottom rail. Weaving rhododendron into functional and attractive indoor, outdoor, or front porch railings is an art form we have developed through years of experience, working with this material and learning to find the right place for each unique piece.
Indoor, Outdoor, and Front Porch Railings
Because of its distinctive, twisty nature, our custom railing systems that incorporate rhododendron are our most labor intensive. We pay careful attention to the weave of the wood to ensure that the space within the weave is not too large and will pass inspection. Unlike our more traditional rustic railing styles that incorporate a vertical baluster, the rhododendron weave allows for greater artistic license and the formation of unique patters and styles. Rhododendron infill is incorporated into some of our indoor railings and porch railings with a beautiful effect. Let us help you build the perfect rhododendron railing system today.
