Paint started to peel of and rust appeared on my old period railings. Can they be restored?
Old wrought-iron railings may to valuable to replace, or if the property is listed there may be a requirement to keep original ones.
In this case there is an option of refinishing, which means restoring your metalwork. Refinishing will include the following process: removing railings, sand-blasting to strip old paint, galvanising and repainting or powder-coating. Here is an example of old railings in Sandwich, Kent, returned to their original glory.
