Never Settle for a Home You Don't Love

When I was finally ready to purchase my first home after I graduated from college and found a stable job, I was on a tight budget. I settled for a house that was "good enough" for the time-being, but knew that in the future I would move to a larger one. Once I met my wife and she moved in, we thought about moving but loved the location of our home and had made great friends with the neighbors. For years, we thought we had "to settle" with the home we had since we didn't want to move, but recently, we decided to have several of our rooms remodeled. We are now in love with our home and think everyone should live in a home they love! We decided to start a blog to share what we learned about home construction and remodeling during the process!

3 Reasons To Powder-Coat Your Iron Railings

The type of railings that you install on your property can have a direct impact on your home's curb appeal. Many homeowners opt for iron railings because these railings are capable of withstanding exposure to the elements while maintaining their structural stability.

A finish is typically applied to iron railings to help offer some protection against moisture and sunlight. One of the finish options available to you is powder-coating. This type of finish can offer some unique benefits that will help you appreciate your iron railings even more over time.

1. Create a Smooth Appearance

Some finish processes can be detrimental to the aesthetic of your iron railings. Paint, for example, can drip during the drying process and leave behind blemishes in the finish. Powder-coating can create a smooth and flawless finish for the iron railings you install near your entry stairs or around your deck.

You even have the ability to select from a wide range of colors when powder-coating your iron railings, so you can easily create a look that will blend with your home's existing aesthetic and add to your property's curb appeal.

2. Enjoy Lasting Structural Integrity

A lot of railing materials require routine maintenance to keep them looking their best. Iron railings that are finished with paint can fall into this category. If you are hoping to invest in railings that can withstand the test of time without requiring a significant time investment in maintenance, then powder-coated iron railings are the right choice for your home.

Powder-coated finishes are extremely durable. Since the coating is applied using electrostatic energy and heat, powder-coating actually becomes fused with the iron it is applied to. This fusion creates a solid barrier between the underlying iron and environmental contaminants (like moisture or dirt particles) that may cause damage over time.

3. Reduce Your Environmental Impact

Many homeowners are worried about the impact their renovation activities have on the environment. If you fall into this category, then powder-coating your iron railings is the best option. Powder-coating is an environmentally friendly process. 

Many paints contain harmful chemicals that can introduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air as the paint ages. These VOCs can combine with gases in the atmosphere to create harmful pollutants. Powder-coating releases no VOCs, which means your powder-coated iron railings will not contribute to air pollution in your area.

Take advantage of the benefits the right finish can offer by choosing powder-coated iron railings for your home.
