Wood systems may cost less up front, but they require periodic maintenance that quickly adds up to make them more expensive than Aluminum Railing Systems. Wood railing panel customers should expect to spend at least $500 every 18 months on regular cleaning and refinishing. Customers can choose untreated wood to avoid refinishing, but wood that is not painted or finished will end up with dark gray stains due to weathering.
Even with regular maintenance, wood systems only last about five to 10 years. Aluminum Railing, on the other hand, is a strong, long-lasting material that is virtually maintenance-free. Our Aluminum Railing Kits, for instance, has an architectural-grade powder coating that the manufacturer warranties for 15 years. During that time, your customers can expect to spend ZERO dollars on maintenance.
