    What do you do when PermaCast Hand Rail Anchors Have Corroded Badly- Failed in Slab?

    I think I have the Perma Cast PS4019 Hand Rail anchors and they have corroded and failed.

    It appears this style is poured in place when the slab is poured.

    Anyone know of some type of replacement anchor to fit in the same hole - or do I have to cut up the slab there and repour maybe a 12"x12" section?

    Call around/check craigs list. I had a deck and had to install a rail. It was cheaper to call and have them drill the holes in the concrete then to rent a machine.
    Yes, you'll have to drill them out. It's pretty straight forward. They have a concrete cutting drill/borer that cuts a nice clean round hole. They'll replace the anchors, concrete them in then and replace the rail.

    You may want to consider replacing the railing at the same time. They make the covers/escutcheons oversized to cover the repour. Not sure on the railing but I recommend the one that the two poles that connect to the ground be connected. (That's what I will do on my replacement.) Otherwise they then to shift/twist.

    If it's aluminum it should be pretty easy to drill out I'd say. How about drilling it out, and then using a rotohammer, drill a new hole a little larger and re-setting a new one? Depending on the size of your new hole, you could either use an epoxy, or a nonshrink grout like hub 100 which is really strong and easy to work with.

    Or you could hire it out to a professional
