Railings and Stairs
Beyond fencing, gates and garage doors – the professionals at OT Gates and Fence Repair also design and install custom metal/cable railings and stairways in Van Nuys and across the Valley for residential and commercial needs. We are passionate wooden fence contractors, and are also a welding/ironworks shop at heart, and railings or stairs are a natural fir for our experienced and skilled craftsmen.
Hiring a railing installation contractor you can trust can feel like a workout sometimes. Even with all the reviews available, you never know what type of service you’re going to get. We always recommend asking friends or family for referrals for general qualifying and getting some built-in trust. When personal referrals aren’t available, then you are likely relying on Google to give you the answers you seek.
This process can find you companies that are truly honest and will deliver on expectations you set when starting. Searching the web can also uncover less than trustworthy options that will waste your time and money. We’ve been there ourselves.
Our company in Van Nuys is known for our beautiful, electric sliding gates and fence services, and we also specialize in custom hand railings, stair rails, and balcony rails for the interior and exterior of your office building or home. Railings and staircases can be designed using both wood and metal, steel cable, glass, and other ornamental (and strong, safe, and efficient) materials.
Some of our clients who own real estate properties understand the value of the often neglected railings after working with us. They previously believed adding some nice fencing and other cosmetic fixes would satisfy their property or home inspections. What they discovered was that railings are an important safety feature that must meet tight regulations. If you’re not up to local specifications, it can get expensive quickly.
Railing requirements differ depending on where you live, and we are well trained in code regulations in Los Angeles County. Not only do the railings and stairs we fabricate and install pass inspections and add safety, they also add value to your property and aesthetic appeal.
For example, providing an entire deck railing system produced using pressure treated wooden posts, railings and balusters can pay you back almost 76% of your initial investment. It is considered one of the most affordable renovations you can add to a residential or commercial property according to Remodeling magazine’s annual cost-vs-value report.
