Wrought iron stair railing kits are a classic option for your home. They are durable, attractive and have a timeless appeal. The installation of a wrought iron railing is something you can do yourself. Railing kits come assembled and are mounted on the step part of the staircase. Wrought iron railings are normally used in combination with cement stairs. The process for installing wrought iron in wood and cement is the same with the exception of the fasteners used.
For wood, compression screws designed for wood are used. In cement installations, it is necessary to check the validity of drilling the hole and the use of cement screws. Place the iron stair railing kits on the edge of the concrete staircase in the place you want. Measure the distance from the mountains to the edge of the stairs with a tape measure to make sure that space is uniform. Mark the mounting holes of the brackets on the base of the railing to the concrete staircase with a pencil.
Set the handrail aside. Drill the holes to the depth of the length of the screws with a hammer driller and a drill bit that is 1/16 inch smaller than the screws. Align the holes in the brackets on the base of the modern stair railing kits with the holes drilled in the steps. Drive the screws through the holes in the brackets on the cement stairs with a screw gun.
