Whether you have bought a new house or decided to redecorate the current one, sooner or later you will approach the question of exterior handrails. They have to be present if there are stairs outside the building: down from your deck, front door, etc. Exterior hand railing constructions are installed in a way that’s convenient for a person to grab while going up or down the stairs. You can choose nearly any design you might wish, and the range of materials is also huge. However, the two most popular options are aluminum and wood.
Aluminum is the lightest of all metal options for exterior handrails. It also doesn’t require a lot of special care. All you have to do for your aluminum railings to look good and serve for long time is to wipe dirt and dust from them. This metal is weather resistant, which makes corrosion and rust rare troubles. Our specialists at Art Metal Workshop also put a special powder coat on the railings to strengthen all qualities and make the material almost maintenance free.
Aluminum is also one of the cheapest and lightest options from all metals used for exterior stair railings. This makes it quite ergonomic, requiring less money spent on the railings and less supportive elements for their installation.
Wooden handrails can be made from many types of wood, but the most popular options are:
Choose the option that suits your taste the best, as the weather of Toronto allows using both metal and wooden exterior handrails. Our specialists will be glad to work on your project if you choose metal for your railings.
