Railing is used inside and outside a home or business. When a home or business needs to have railing installed, often they do not think of taking the opportunity of having a custom designed railing. However, you can create a unique and bigger visual impact when seeking a custom designed railing. If you have never considered having a custom railing before, Liston Metalworks would like to share some benefits of custom rails for your home or business.
Custom Railing Allows for Creativity
Custom railing means just that. You can choose from a wide range of designs and even have the opportunity to create your own. As long as the metal can be worked to create your desired look and design, metal smiths will make sure to create the railings you want. Not only can custom railing have its own unique look and design, but they are also fitted exactly with your stair or balcony. Often when you need a railing for stairs, decks or balconies, railings come in pre-cut lengths. This can make it very difficult to get the right length of railing for your needs. When seeking custom railing, the length along with any twists and turns are made to fit perfectly.
Metal Railings are Built to Last
When you want a custom railing for your home or business, most custom railing is made from wrought iron. Wrought iron has been used for centuries and has proven to last. With proper care, custom iron railing can outlast a person’s life time. There’s no specific shelf life for a steel railing. Some will last ten years, others seem to last indefinitely. If you are hesitant to commit to custom railing for your home or business for fear of the cost, know that your railing will last years and is well worth the investment.
Safety Railings Increase Security
Custom railing will look beautiful and enhance your home and match a theme of your business. However, they are also designed to be strong and ensure safety. The railing are also designed to prevent accidents or injuries. The railing system will be anchored down into the walls and bottom of the stairs or flooring. If you have any concerns as to whether or not custom railings are as safe as any other railing system, rest assured you will get quality design and installation from your custom railing.
Custom Metal Railings are Virtually Maintenance Free
A custom steel or iron railing is as simple to maintain as any other metal railing system. Iron is often painted or coated to help protect it from the elements. Over time the railing’s protective coating may need to be refinished. If the iron begins to rust, you will want to quickly clean, sand off the rust and oil the railing to prevent future rusting. Rust is a clear sign your need to tend to your railing and make sure it gets a new protective coating. If the railing feels loose, you will need to tighten the screws and bolts to ensure safety and security. However, custom railing only needs to be tightened down from time to time. The same goes for a new protective coating. Other than those major areas, custom railing doesn’t require much more maintenance.
