Wrought Iron Railing Alternatives

Wrought Iron Railing Alternatives

Wrought iron railing can be expensive and time consuming to have installed. After a recent customer determined the cost of wrought iron railing for their home, they turned to the Internet to search for alternative DIY railing solutions. They were pleasantly surprised to find Simplified Building and our Simple Rail handrail kits. Simple Rail handrail kits enable you to install a very sturdy metal handrail that can be easily painted to match your home.

Jonathan had this to say about his project:

I needed to install a railing on our front steps as part of our sellers agreement. I got quotes for a wrought iron railing to be $1000 and so I thought I would install it myself. I ordered the railing, had my masonry buddy drill holes into the flagstone, painted the parts/railing and installed. Looks real nice!

Jonathan's experience reflects that of many other's who have come to Simplified Building for a railing kit. Instead of waiting 4-6 weeks for installation, you can have the railing on site within a week and then install it yourself! We have several videos that show how easy it is to install Simple Rail.

Painting Simple Rail

Simple Rail comes with a standard galvanized metal finish. The railing can be powder coated for an additional cost, or you can paint the railing yourself like Jonathan did.

Wrought iron certainly looks nice when it is installed properly, but it can be very flimsy. Simple rail pipe railing is rock solid, and it's simple aesthetic fits in with just about any home. Simple Rail can also be customized to fit in complicated situations and step arrangements without excessive costs.
