Cast and Wrought Iron restoration
Cast iron railing restorations, or any railing restoration is quite a straight forward procedure, but can also be very time consuming. We start off by fully stripping the railings back to its original state, which can take some time, as many have been painted over and over for the last 100 odd years!.
Being how old the cast iron railings are, it can also be a little tricky to match some components, such as railheads, but when we can’t match them, we can cast a replica. In this situation, we will remove the component we need to match, and get as many castings as we need. While the components are at the foundry, we can repair or replace damaged foundations and any other components that have been damaged, or are missing.
When the new castings are ready, we will return to weld them back in place. We then prime the railings with zinc phosphate anti corrosion paint and finish in black gloss, unless, they were a different colour to start with.
Cost Of Cast Iron Railing Repairs
Repairing cast iron railings is more expensive than repairing wrought iron railings, for the simple fact, materials cost more. Cast iron welding rods are used, which are far more expensive than conventional mild steel welding rods. Also the cost of missing components can be quite expensive to replicate as we have to get them cast in the foundary.
We have all the necessary equipment to carry out repair work on railings on site. All work is finished to a very high standard.
