It’s no secret that the Raleigh-Cary metro area is filled with beautiful homes. They all don’t flaunt iron railings like homes in older cities do. Because of our explosive growth since the 1980’s, only a small portion of homes have been built with iron railings outside. The use of treated wood and increase of iron ore prices made building outdoor structures with wood much more cost-effective . Similar to particle-board siding replacing wood and brick siding, building railings and fences of wood meant a builder could offer more home for less, albeit at a sacrifice of product quality and durability.
Replacing the wooden railings on your porch, stairs, and decks allow you to add a level of sophistication to your curb appeal while stopping the need of continual painting and replacing rotted wooden railings. Custom iron railings can have small upgrades with big impact like scrolling iron pickets and finials.
We exclusively powdercoat every railing we install. This, along with the top-quality iron we use, prevents rust and leaves you a virtually maintenance-free railing!
When you choose to replace your wood railings with iron railings, make sure your iron railings are installed correctly. A poorly installed railing can cause serious injury, even death! Whether your ground surface is wood, concrete, brick, or block, there is a specific installation process that must be followed to ensure railings are securely installed for permanent safety. Cast Iron Elegance is a leader in professional installation so you never have to worry!
