Advantages to Metal Rails

Have you ever caught a glimpse of metal handrails? They are unique, creative, subtle, or even magnificent. There are no limits when it comes to the creativity that can be incorporated into a metal staircase, whether that’s the railing or the entire structure. Here are a few things that your local Lake of the Ozarks welder wants you to know about metal staircases, and how I can help!

Welding Types - What’s the Difference?

Welding is powerful. With some metal, creativity, and a lot of heat you can build just about anything.
