Cost Factors of a Wrought Iron Staircases

Wrought iron staircases are a wonderful addition to any home improvement endeavor. This will add a sense on industrial class to any part of your home. The cost factors would have to be considered as wrought iron staircases are considerably more expensive than comparable wooden stares. Iron is also more durable and can withstand extreme heat and cold. The best part about worught iron is that these staircases could be custom made as desired by the home owner.

Cost Factors of Wrought Iron Staircases

1. Design

Intricate designs are harder to achieve and manipulate with wrought iron. Those who wish to have wrought iron staircases with beautiful patterns and curving designs should expect to pay more. Custom made designs are also considered by manufacturers but an average of $3000 to $4000 is to be expected for such a project. It will also depend if the design is straight, curved or rounded. Straight staircases are cheaper than curved designs but are considered less attractive (depending on the design.)

2. Length or Size

The overall length and size of the staircase will also play a determining factor when it comes to overall price. It is understandable that the longer the staircase is, the higher the price may be as more metal is being integrated into the manufacturing and design process. Other companies offer a package that sets a standard price for a particular length regardless of design. It would be a good idea to take advantage of such an offer.

3. Finish

Like the finish of a brand new car, it is easy to understand why wrought iron staircases with an immaculate finish or paint job will cost more than the average. Other home owners prefer the look of bare metal over painted surfaces. Manufacturers offer a variety of finishes for the meticulous home owner and will even offer customization services which allow you to choose the color combination of the staircase to match the overall theme of your home. Expect prices to be higher when gold flake paint is used on the design or when expensive paint-which are designed to better withstand weather elements-are used in the manufacturing process. 

4. Quality

Understand the fact that not all manufacturers are the same and each employ different techniques of construction. It would be best to visit the manufacturer for consultation and to view the different designs that they offer. This will give you the chance to check the quality and workmanship of the staircase. The more expensive brands will offer the best quality as they employ the best manufacturing techniques in metal manipulation and assembly.

The internet is a reliable source of information when it comes to wrought iron staircases. Take advantage of special offers and deals offered by different wrought iron makers and never forget to ask for an estimate when searching for the best price.
