Different Materials of a Metal Baluster

A metal baluster can be made from many different materials, but they are usually made of stainless steel, wrought iron, or aluminum. Depending on your budget and style needs, you may need to shop for a material based on indoor versus outdoor use and style versus affordability.

Stainless Steel

This is a very popular material for balusters due to its contemporary design and appeal. It is also a moderately inexpensive material option. Stainless steel can be appropriate for both indoor and outdoor installation, but it is usually used in indoor installation.

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron is favored for its intricate designs and hammered look. Wrought iron tends to be more expensive than most other metals because of its production costs and high consumer demand. Although wrought iron maybe used outside, it is often used inside to avoiding rusting and maintenance issues.

Aluminum

Aluminum balusters are favored for outdoor use because they are very low maintenance. They do not rust easily and they can be easily painted with a powered or matte finish to resemble wrought iron or stainless steel. Aluminum is also a more inexpensive option than most other metals.
