Steel, a great material for metal porch and deck railings

The choice of metal porch railings is between older wrought-iron styles, aluminum railings, and metal porch railings made of steel, mild carbon steel, and stainless polished steel.

The same refers to the metal deck railing and is fully applicable. Metal deck rails serve the same purpose and are identical in design options, and deck railing materials choices. The only difference is in the mounting styles, more on that later.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does steel railing cost?

The cost of steel railing depends on many factors and is best determined by steel estimators, who’ll factor in the cost of raw components, the cost of fabrication, and the cost of the installation. Structural Beam’s experienced estimators will get back to you with a price estimate, upload the blueprints of your metal railing into the form on our site.

How do you install a metal porch railing?

Metal porch railing installation style will depend on the way your front porch is constructed. There is a choice of mounting at our miscellaneous steel erection team’s disposal: side mounting, core-drilling mounting, base plate mounting, bolting, welding, etc. The main objective is to make sure, that the metal porch railing is secured in its place, structurally sound, and safe to use.

Should I put railing on my porch?

For all things construction, it’s better to be safe, than sorry, and check the relevant codes and regulations for your project to be compliant, and your porch safe to use. As a rule of thumb, you are required to put a railing on your front porch, if the floor of your porch is 30 inches or more above the ground. Yet, 30 inches is high enough to get injured. Safety must come first, don’t compromise on it!
