New gates and railings is not always the answer when it comes to working on old buildings. The work that was put into manufacturing gates and railings in the days gone by is amazing. We have come across masterpieces and are constantly in awe of their skill and workmanship.
It is very possible in this modern day to re-create these masterpieces and to match and blend the old with the new.
An old railings can be brought back to life and can last another 100years. By blasting, cleaning down and stripping the metal appart it can easily be re worked and spliced and repaired.
The spear heads, bosses, hasps, locks, hanging brackets, drop bolts curves and shapes can all be made to look excatly the same.
So there is no need to dump it, get it refurbished.
