A balustrade is simply a row of repeating balusters. Balusters are small posts that support the upper rail of a railing. Commonly, balustrades are seen on staircases, but they can also be used to define porches, entrance ways, verandahs, decks, and balconies. They can also be used in fencing and for privacy screens.
There are several different materials that can be used for balustrading. Following is a list of some of the different materials that can be used:
Balustrading professionals are able to create custom designs to perfectly suit your home. Companies should be willing to provide you with a free measure and quote, as well as provide full installation when the balustrading is ready. If possible, it is a good idea to ask to see examples of previous work, especially if you are getting a custom design.
Balustrading is typically costed on a per meter basis installed, so the size of your staircase or balcony will give a supplier some idea of a final price. The material used is another major factor, with timber at the lower end of the cost scale and glass and metals toward the upper end. A small staircase with a timber baluster may only cost in the thousands of dollars or less, with larger projects using more expensive materials escalating considerably into tens of thousands of dollars.
