Picture this! A beautiful horse farm in the greater Philadelphia area with an exceptional home sitting on it that boasted a wrap-around porch overlooking the equestrian pastures. Peaceful right?!
Unfortunately, the old porch railings were rotting away which was not only an eyesore but also a safety issue. So, the owners wanted a maintenance-free iron porch railing to replace it. They also wanted to change the porch railing design to a more upscale railing. Compass Ironworks was on it! We would make them a rebuilt beauty!
The last hard choice was railing material selection. Their initial intent was to do the railing design in traditional iron, but in the railing design dialog we presented a sample of aluminum railing in a solid aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. They were thrilled with the rigidity, strength, and indistinguishability from iron the aluminum railing provided. With an eco-friendly yet durable powder-coat finish this has the protection to withstand the elements for many decades. This allows the owners safety and an added design element. It now was a rebuilt beauty to add to their beloved horse farm in the greater Philadelphia area.
