What makes Church’s handrails different from the others? 2018-03-03T10:00:51+00:00

To our knowledge, we are one of the only firms that offer custom bent railings. Other firms typically use straight sections connected to vertical supports. Given all the twists and bends in the Muskoka landscape, our steel bending solution is more appropriate because we need fewer vertical supports. Moreover, our supports are buried deeply in the soil or rock, meaning that we don’t need to use less-than-appealing plates or bolts.

Where do I install these handrails? 2018-03-03T10:00:02+00:00

Most often our customers want access to the lake at their cottages. Other obvious places are stairs to and from parking areas, gardens, storage areas, etc. In short, our handrails open up recreational areas for less-than-mobile seniors.

Seniors don’t visit my property. Are these handrails really necessary? 2018-03-03T09:58:00+00:00

Having handrails around dangerous areas in this rocky Muskoka terrain is always a good idea. Children, visitors and even the fittest individuals can slip and fall. In an era of increasing litigation as regards slips and falls, it is wise to take precautions.

Why should I consider installing such handrails for myself or my parents? 2018-03-03T09:57:26+00:00

A fall, particularly for seniors, can be a life shattering experience. Proper handrails can mean all the difference between enjoying the pleasures of a cottage property and remaining housebound. Many of our customers are ecstatic because they can enjoy their lakeside property to the fullest once again.

Aren’t these railings extremely expensive? 2018-03-03T09:56:33+00:00

Our railing solutions typically cost between $60 and $80 per installed foot, including three coats of paint. This is more expensive than some other alternatives. But if your objectives are totally secure handholds, non-obtrusive design, and low maintenance through the years, then our steel handrails are ideal for your home or cottage.

What are the advantages of steel handrails? 2018-03-03T09:54:15+00:00

Our steel handrails are the best solution for discriminating customers. They are strong, precisely tailored to their surroundings, and aesthetically pleasing. Our steel handrails offer maximum security as they are deeply imbedded in the soil, stone, rock or concrete of the path or steps. They are beautiful because they are thin, follow the contours of the path or stairs, and, when painted black, tend to disappear when one is looking from a distance. Landscape designers like them because they do not interfere with the overall harmony of their designs. There are no less-than-appealing plates or bolts that tend to rust or disintegrate over the years. Just simple clean lines for the discriminating customer.
