Step Up To Veranda Stair Railings

Looking For a Local Contractor Fast?

August 30, 2007

Your veranda says more about your home than you can possibly imagine.  From the front of your house, it is an invitation to anyone who enters.  And it adds a stylish air all its own to your front door, especially when the veranda is coupled with beautifully made veranda stair railings.  There are so many different ways to create attractive veranda stair railings, you are sure to find a style that matches the exterior of your home and provides the look you want to accompany your front yard.  From wrought iron to wood to PVC, there is sure to be a railing that works for your home.

For you weekend home improvement professionals, you can find do-it-yourself veranda stair railings in self-installation kits at your local hardware or home improvement store.  Most of these kits include whiter, PVC veranda stair railings; however, you may be able to find a few that have wooden railings.  These self installation kits are great, especially for those who have very little experience with home improvement projects.  But the best feature of PVC veranda stair railings is that they never need to be painted.  They also are extremely weather-resistant.

Wrought iron veranda stair railings are also very sturdy and weather-resistant, but these cannot be installed quickly by the average Joe.  Most of the time, a home owner will look to a professional contractor to make and install wrought iron railings simply because they require professional expertise to manufacture. 

Wooden veranda stair railings are not as common as PVC or wrought iron railings, but they are just as sturdy when they have been weather treated.  Of course, wood needs to be painted regularly, and unlike PVC and wrought iron, they can rot if not protected and cared for.  When it comes to cutting and installing wooden veranda stair railings, if you have some experience with a miter saw and other wood-working tools, you should be able to do it yourself.  But remember that the railings may need to be cut to size, even if they are out of a do-it-yourself kit, so be prepared for a lot of measuring and cutting.
