Metal is considered to be the most durable material for outdoor decorative shelving and safety fences. This has made iron the most popular choice for centuries, especially for rod iron stair railing. The overall need for maintenance and repair is minimal. Sometimes rust will start to pit and corrode metal, or the anchor bracket will separate from the concrete where it was installed.
Staying on top of these minor repairs will protect the integrity of the railing. A couple of hours of work will help the metal railing preserve beauty and use for the next generation. Meanwhile, we can paint wrought iron staircase designs to comeback the beautifully. Firstly, place a dust sheet over all topics and areas that would suffer from paint spraying. Scratch the surface of the railing using a small steel brush and a hand-treated hand.
Sand the surface with 120 sandpaper sandpaper to grind it for the painting. Dry handrails with a tack cloth to remove dust. Spray on a layer of metal primer easily. Cover the areas that are rusty or are bare metals. Slowly spray a layer of metal finish paint. Keep the cane 12 to 18 inches away and stay in motion as you spray to avoid running and dripping. Allow the paint to dry for 24 hours before handling the stair hand railing.
