Here’s a guide on customizing your balcony railing:
Things to remember while choosing a design
While the style of house is one of the most crucial determinants of your balcony’s design, there are other deciding factors as well.
Let’s take a look at some important things you’ll have to consider while choosing a balcony railing design:
If you on the coast, you have to select a material that isn’t easily corroded by saltwater or salty air. In such situations, your ideal materials would be aluminum, cap-stock composite, glass, and vinyl. If you live in interior regions, you can choose from all these materials mentioned above and wood, steel, and wrought iron.
Exposure to sun and other environmental factors
Along with the material, color of your balcony railing design also plays an important role. If the metal railing receives direct sunlight during noon or afternoon, avoid choosing black or darker colors.
It might get very hot and the children, pets, or you can get burnt because of it. You can either change the material to wood or vinyl, which doesn’t heat up quickly or light colors like white or light
yellow will do the work to.
If a particular balcony railing faces the lawn, which has in-built sprinklers, we suggest you to not go for glass. The water would get on the glass and dust would settle on it. You might not get time every day to clean the glass and the blotchy patches would magnify intensity of heat and sunlight entering the house.
Check if the surface is leveled properly. If you have a concrete patio or balcony space, you are going to have a little trouble fixing the railing. On the other hand, a tiled surface won’t give you any problems. Wrought Iron Art will help you out with height adjustment if your balcony has a slope. If the slope is too steep, you’ll need to purchase a customized base flange, which will be fitted to level the surface.
You don’t usually need to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines for balcony railings but it is always good to check.
If you have someone with disability leaving with you, you must follow the guidelines. Also, if you plan to put the house on rent, you have to follow the ADA railing guidelines compulsorily.
Always choose a company that has experienced craftsmen, especially if the material you’ve chosen requires some accurate skills. At Wrought Iron Art, you don’t have to worry about that because all our craftsmen have years of experience at disposal and will help you bring your dream balcony railing into reality.
Even though most railing materials can be painted into whichever color you want except glass, we recommend you to stick to neutral colors. For example, white, black, or beige would be good choices as they go along with any type of decor and style. Keep designs of all balcony railings of your house the same for it to look uniform and appealing.
The same goes with color. Let’s say, you want to paint all railings black but there are couple that get excessive sunlight. In such situation, you can’t paint it black because it will absorb too much heat and give you blister. You’ll have to go with white or any light color. You can paint some parts of it black to match the decor.
Here, you’ll have to change color of all balcony railings to white or any other combination you choose.
Additional support to structure
If you’ve chosen a lightweight material like composite, vinyl, aluminum, or cellular PVC, you will need some additional support.
The railings will require infills of a stronger material, so that the structure’s shape isn’t destroyed during extreme weather conditions or excessive load. The change in materials won’t be noticeable because you can paint them in the same color.
