Restoring Rusted Metal Staircases

Posted in Welding

If you own an apartment complex, a commercial multiple-story building or other type of multiple-level structure with a metal staircase, you know that safety is a priority. Metal staircases are a great investment for commercial buildings due to the ability to custom design them to fit almost any structure, plus they are extremely durable and affordable. However, even with protective coatings, metal stairs can begin to rust and become a liability for your business. At the first signs of rust, have your metal staircases restored to protect your business from expensive injury lawsuits.

 Signs of Metal Staircase Corrosion

A rusted stair tread or corroded weld on your metal staircase can quickly end in an injury, costing your business a small fortune in medical bills and raised insurance premiums. It only takes on small spot of rusted metal to end up a giant liability for your finances. These accidents can be avoided by restoring your staircases before they become a hazard. Signs it is time to invest in metal staircase restoration include:

  • Loose railings
  • Rust spots on stair treads or seams
  • Chipped or peeling coating, showing bare metal or rust underneath
  • Holes in metal platforms, treads or flooring

At the first sign of any of these issues, call a local metal fabricator that specializes in metal staircase fabrication and restoration. They can inspect your staircase and give you a bid on restoring your staircase to improve safety. In some cases, the corrosion may be more intrusive and hazardous than you realize, requiring replacement versus restoration.

Keeping your commercial property free of safety hazards is part of the cost of doing business. Don’t let your metal staircases become a liability; have them inspected for rust and corrosion today.
