When choosing the right material for your staircase project, there are a plethora of options to choose from. The most common of these choices is metal and wood; but which out of these two fantastic materials is best for you?
The construction material you choose is important for a number of reasons. Let’s take a look at the many reasons you should opt for a metal staircase over wood.
Metal is Stronger
Although wooden staircases can be aesthetically beautiful when installed with a natural wood finish, metal wins for it’s unbelievable strength. A metal staircase can withstand almost anything, including fire, making it a fantastic choice for longevity.
Metal is Durable
Wood is a great material for your staircase projects, however, it can chip and scratch easily which can affect the appearance of your staircase dramatically. Metal is highly durable when compared to wood. In a busy workplace, metal will have no problem enduring the many heavy footsteps every day.
Metal is Versatile
Wood’s inherent softness means there are limitations to its uses.. The fabrication process when constructing staircases in metal offers unlimited scope in terms of design and manufacture. This is ideal for installations such as spiral staircases, or when fitting stairs in an unconventional space. The rigidity of metal allows your imagination and creativity no bounds.
Metal is Incredibly Stylish
Metal is one of the most stylish materials available on the market. Many elegant homes feature staircases in metal, which are often considered to be more stylish and contemporary. Whatever the style of your home or business, there’s a staircase in metal just waiting to be created.
