Does Your Business’ Metal Staircase Need Repair or Replacement?

Posted in Metal Stairs

Metal stairs are an excellent investment for commercial properties. Apartment buildings, manufacturing outfits and many other types of business prefer the durability and easy maintenance that metal staircases provide. However, even steel does need some maintenance, including repairs. But when it is more than just a staircase repair that you need to keep your commercial property safe? Here are some signs that you may need a complete metal staircase replacement.

  • Multiple repairs. Have your metal staircases needed repairs constantly over the last few years? If the welds on corners are beginning to give and your treads are starting to rust, it may be time to consider replacement. Fixing the stairs piece by piece will cost you more in the long run, plus eventually you will still need to pay for a replacement.
  • Injuries. Have you already had an employee or customer injure themselves on the stairs due to disrepair? You cannot afford to have a large liability like a crumbling staircase in your business. A new staircase is a drop in the bucket compared to a liability lawsuit.
  • Aesthetics. If your metal staircase is used by customers, you don’t want an old, rusty staircase representing your business. If the integrity of the staircase is compromised, it is time to replace; however, if it looks bad yet is still viable, a professional coating can make it look great again and extend the life of your stairs.

Whether you decide to repair or replace, you need quality metal fabricator. Make sure to choose a company that specializes in commercial metal staircases to ensure you get the best quality and safety built into your metal stairs.
