Why You Should Install a Wrought Iron Handrail
Homeowners have a lot of responsibilities, including but not limited to maintaining a safe and visually appealing home. One of the most effective things you can do as a property owner is install wrought iron handrails on your property.
For hundreds of years, wrought iron handrails have been used to decorate, improve security, and increase safety. We personally have three generations worth of experience in this industry and can attest to the many advantages of installing an iron handrail on your property.
DIY Handrail has been in the ironworks business for more than seventy five years. We have extensive first-hand experience designing, manufacturing, and installing wrought iron handrails for steps, porches, patios, and more. Our mission is to provide the necessary resources so people across the nation can experience all the benefits of installing an iron handrail on their property.
The Benefits of Wrought Iron Handrails
Iron handrails have been around for so long because they are one of the most beneficial solutions for securing a perimeter, minimizing accidents, and improving the visual appeal of a property.
Wrought Iron Handrails Increase Safety
Even before looks, the primary function of any handrail or guardrail is to protect people from falling over the edge into an area where they could get hurt. Iron handrails form an excellent barrier, prevent people from falling, and increase the safety of your home, porch, patio, or steps.
Iron Handrails Come in a Range of Styles
Wrought iron handrails come in various colors, styles, finishes, and shapes. Since iron is easier to work with than other metals, we can craft unique shapes and design styles to fit the specific look each customer is trying to achieve. We carry everything from Picket and Arch handrails to Newel and Level handrails for steps, porches, and patios.
Durable and Easy to Maintain
One of the main reasons you should install iron handrails on your property is because we make them from durable, easy-to-maintain metal. Iron is susceptible to rust, but each DIY Handrail comes with a durable rust-resistant coating to minimize future maintenance requirements.
While it may not compromise the material’s structural integrity, iron handrails do get dirty and should be cleaned regularly. Fortunately, cleaning iron rails is easier than it would be cleaning a wooden one or one made from a different material.
Over time the coating or paint may fade and expose the underlying iron surface causing it to rust. A fresh coat of paint can stop this in its tracks and return your wrought iron railing to its former glory.
In the end, wrought iron railing is easier to clean and maintain than wooden or other types of railing. Less maintenance means you can spend less money on your handrails and more time enjoying them.
Wrought Iron Handrails are Cost-Effective
More benefits typically cost more money. However, this is not the case with wrought iron handrails. DIY Handrail may be your solution if you’re in the market for a cost-effective way to install a railing on your porch, patio, or steps. Railings from DIY are easier to clean, maintain, customize, and more affordable to install.
