I have a 1960’s wood deck that will be replaced this summer. The old posts (buried in concrete) that support the deck step railings are too short by today’s standard. My contractor has suggested “adding on” to the posts to bring them up to the proper height. I question whether this is wise. My thoughts are to dig out the old posts and replace them with new ones. Can someone recommend the proper way to proceed?
Purchasers of certain models should stop using the saw immediately and contact DeWalt to receive a free repair kit.
