THINK BEFORE YOU BUY A GENERIC WINDOW WELL COVER!

This may seem like a great option to cover your window well, however, these pre made covers really do not do a great job of providing safety from your window well. These generic window wells also do not have many other added benefits of custom window well covers like those made by Colorado Custom Welding.

Just looking at the two covers side by side you can see the difference in functionality and looks.

Handrails for your stairs

20140422_183019
Handrails for your stairs not only add to the atheistic appeal of your home, but they also serve a purpose. Not sure if you should put a handrail on your stairs? Here are some things to consider.

1. Check Visual Appeal
A drawing of the porch will help determine the visual appeal of handrails. For instance, if the porch will have railings around the walking deck, the porch steps may look better with handrails, even if the porch decking is just 24 inches high, for example. Adding handrails provides the opportunity to add well-made posts at the bottom of the steps on each side. These support posts can enhance the look of the house significantly from the curbside.

2. Consider Safety Concerns
Evaluate how your family will use the porch steps. If you have small children under the age of five, the handrails will provide boundaries to keep the children from toppling off the side of the steps. Even if they can’t reach the handrail tops, children gain protection from balusters in place under the handrails at the stairs.

3. Plan for Privacy
A public sidewalk in front of the house may dictate extra boundaries that are needed. For example, you can extend handrails along stairs coming off the porch to flank your own sidewalk that intersects with the public sidewalk. By extending railing beside the steps on toward the curb, you can install a security gate right where your sidewalk ends.

4. Review Step Dimensions
Extremely wide front steps may not require handrails. For example, if the porch decking is less than 30 inches high, the steps coming down from the porch are relatively easy to navigate. Just two or three steps are not a risk factor for most adults, and steps that are wider than 4 feet pose no real risk to falling off the sides of the steps. Narrow steps might require a handrail on just one side.

Glenwood Springs Vacation Home Railing

Colorado Custom Welding has been busy finishing up this unique railing for a vacation home in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The railing features a unique design which caters to the staircase. The challenge to creating a railing for this vacation home was the fact that the railing had to go all the way up the stairs but a wall was built halfway in the staircase. This meant that the railing needed to match the handrail going the rest of the way up. Colorado Custom Welding took the challenge and was able to come up with a design that both worked with the house interior and met the need of the unique design.
