Not long ago, a Toronto family called us with questions about some metal railings. Following a late night storm, they awoke to discover that a huge old tree in their backyard had fallen right on top of their garage, and had destroyed its roof. They saw this as a chance to add an upstairs apartment for their college-aged son. Since the insurance company was covering the damage to the roof, and a contractor would be on site anyway, they figured it would be more cost effective to set their plans in motion right away. They had already spoken to their contractor, who agreed their plan was solid. He was the one who sent them to us for their railing needs.
Metal Railings – Effective, Economical, Indestructible
Most living spaces above a garage are part of the original construction. For privacy, the stairs are almost always outside the garage, allowing tenants to come and go without disturbing whatever is inside the garage. Since these stairways and their railings are exposed to the elements, they need to be well constructed, from materials that can withstand a harsh, unpredictable environment. We showed this family several styles of metal railings, and told them about the different types of material we offer, like stainless steel and wrought iron, and they found exactly what they were looking for.
When all was said and done, this family had made the best of a bad situation. And because of good timing and a quick call to Toronto Railings, they were able to save a lot of money doing it. If your stairway or handrail needs are inside or outside, for your home or business, we know we have what you need.
