Victorian Entry Restoration
This Victorian balustrade features robust Italianate balusters. Typically, such balusters are toe nailed at the point of connection, over time wicking water into via the fasteners into the endgrain of the wood. Typically, such balusters are toe nailed at the point of connection, over time wicking water into via the fasteners into the endgrain of the wood where expansion from both frost and oxidation of the fasteners splits the wood.
