We get a lot of questions about handrail code. This normally pops up quite often when selling and purchasing a property. Home inspectors are trained to look for this easy to spot and potentially dangerous code violation.
When researching handrail codes for a commercial project, I came across a video explaining how the Building Codes define where a rail or guard is required and thought I would share.
Handrails are not only required by code in some cases, but can add positive curb appeal and be incorporated into the over all look and feel of your home or business.
Louisville Exteriors specialize’s in installing aluminum decorative handrail. This type not only meets handrail code but is extremely low maintenance and decorative. The initial investment is going to be higher than wood, PVC, or Rot Iron but when you factor in the life cycle over the next 10-15 years aluminum is the clear winner in value.
With lots of different styles and colors to choose from aluminum hand railing is by far the best option available today and is used in both residential and commercial settings.
It’s the handrail of choice on beach front condos so you know it’s going to last here in Louisville, KY.
