Once you decide that your house needs a new look, you have plenty of options to choose from that can help revamp the exterior of your home. You can change the windows or add some color to the walls. Changing the entrance can have a major impact on the overall aesthetics of your home.
For the past several years, metal railings have been a popular choice for the entrance stairs. Not only do they look elegant, but they also come in a number of design options.
However, with time, metal railings can be prone to corrosion and start looking old and outdated. Recently, the trends in home renovations in New York have shifted toward precast balusters. Switching your metal railings for precast balusters can change a lot of things such as maintenance and overall design aesthetics. One thing will remain the same—the durability of the material.
Just like metal, precast concrete balusters are strong and sturdy and withstand the test of time. Here are a few more details regarding precast balusters which will help you decide whether it’s the right choice for you:
Consider the aesthetics:
A precast concrete baluster can have a major impact on the overall design and aesthetic of your property. Metal railings are usually thin and often have a particularly unique curving design. This allows the railing to merge with the other areas of the house while allowing other more dominant designs to take center stage.
On the other hand, precast balusters have a rather chunky design which can add a rich flavor to the overall aesthetic of your home. It gives off a very luxurious look and dominates the exterior of your home.
While metal railing is relatively safe, precast concrete balusters offer safety and rock-solid stability that’s hard to beat. The material is strong and durable which prevents any possible damage due to extenuating circumstances. Properly installed precast balusters are also reliable and can offer better stability for your staircase.
Price vs. Value:
Compared to the cost of installing and fixing metal railings, the upfront cost of precast concrete balusters is a bit more. However, the long-term value of installing precast balusters is also higher. Metal railings require regular maintenance and the aesthetics reduce with time and degradation of the material. Precast concrete balusters require almost no maintenance and can reasonably last for centuries without any significant degradation or decrease in the aesthetics.
