Whether it is a remodeling or new construction project, an aluminum stage railing is one factor to add sophistication to your space. Aluminum is strong, durable, and superb in quality making it a great choice for upgrading areas in your home like the deck or porch.
NW Aluminum adds railings to elevated spaces for safety. Safety must be the number one priority for the people who will use the space. Railings protect people, especially kids, from falling from an elevated space.
Railings can be build using steel, metal, wood, and aluminum. One of the best materials to build railings is aluminum and these are the reasons why:
Aluminum Is Better Than Other Materials
…steel iron rusts easily and shows unflattering appearance over time. While the initial cost of steel iron is lower, the cost will build up because of maintenance costs when repainting it. This will negate the initial savings. Moreover, steel iron is heavier than aluminum; therefore, handling is not easy compared to the latter.
…whiles vinyl/PVC may be attractive to some people, the quality and craftsmanship are subpar. It does not have the strength and durability that aluminum can provide.
…wood needs a lot of TLC and most people just do not have the time. If not properly maintained, wood railings can break or split. Moreover, woods enemy is moisture and it is NOT advisable to use wood railings on the deck or porch where they will be exposed to rain and will cause them to rot.
