Frequently Asked Questions for Aluminum and Glass Railing

What is maintenance free aluminum railing?

The home improvement business was revolutionized by aluminum. Gone were the rusting wrought iron railings and steel windows, gone were the rotting wood storm doors and windows. And gone was flaking paint and repainting.

Painted aluminum railing lasts literally forever with only periodic cleaning. The paint finish, especially dark tones, may fade or “chalk” over time, but the underlying metal will last forever.

Craft-Bilt Aluminum Railing

In the typical home improvement scenario, the aluminum railing will not corrode although contact with some chemicals should be avoided, for instance, direct unprotected contact with concrete or some deck cleaners. Salts will corrode many materials including aluminum, vinyl, and wood. Coastal environments are tough on all materials and many manufacturer warranties exclude these regions.

While vinyl is considered maintenance-free, from day one it is being broken down by photo-degradation. We have all seen old vinyl fences and siding that get brittle and cracks. Unlike vinyl or composites, aluminum will maintain its strength for life.

What kind of glass is used in Craft-Bilt aluminum railing?

Craft-Bilt glass railing only uses tempered glass which we have tested and meets the loads required by the building code.

Customers usually want to enjoy the view so they order clear glass, but we also offer grey and bronze tints, as well as specialty colours.

In buildings over 3 storeys high tempered railing glass can also be used, however in Ontario, if the glass is too close to the edge of the slab other types of glass must be used, like heat soaked tempered glass.

Recently had an issue with my self installed railing going off plumb. After investigating, cause was deck related not Craftbilt issue. When I contacted Craftbilt about getting to a screw that had disengaged, they were pleasantly helpful and provided sound advice about replumbing my railing. Additionally, to get to the screw I had to damage the snap cap which they replaced free of charge. All in all, outstanding Canadian product and service.

I've had CraftBilt railings installed on my front porch and on the backyard deck. Both are exactly as advertised and were installed great. No more painting! Very happy.

Hi Bole, Yes! This is one of the best advantages of installing Craft-Bilt's Aluminum Railing, "No more painting!" And one more thing, we don't have plastic railing components. Every Craft-Bilt railing part is made of sturdy high-quality aluminum. Enjoy your new railing on your porch and backyard deck. Thank you.

Very satisfied. Being one of the owner's of my design/build construction company I will be recommending your product to future clients. I have ordered two railing systems within 2 months. The products and service was awesome. From the first order the staff were very helpful. All of my question's were answered which meant no mistake was made in ordering product. The product was shipped and arrived two weeks early. Kevin Oke Oke Woodsmith Building Systems Inc.
