The Biggest Mistakes People Make With Their Balustrades in Adelaide

Balustrades are a wonderful and safe addition to any Adelaide home, yet many people make some very simple mistakes when choosing balustrading for their properties. Let’s take a look at the most common mistakes people make with their balustrades in Adelaide, so you can avoid making the same ones in your home.

Choosing fashionable over functional and safe balustrading

Balustrades can add real beauty and sophistication to your Adelaide home, yet a balustrade that doesn’t meet all the Australian safety standards could cause harm to your family, or possible damage to your home. It is really important to choose an attractive balustrade that is also compliant with all regulations.

Do your homework and research a range of balustrades

As with any home renovation, it’s important that you do your research. You need to take a lot of elements into consideration when researching Balustrades for your Adelaide Home including safety regulations (first and foremost), the aesthetics of what you are looking for in balustrades or what you want to achieve, potential up-keep, and installation issues. There are plenty of styles available on the market, so you should weigh up the pros and cons of each type when you are considering if you like the look of them or if they will fit with the design of your home. Having done your homework should give you plenty to mull over while deciding you are deciding on your final choice.

Compare companies, quotes and prices

This is an interesting conundrum. You don’t want to spend a fortune on replacing your balustrades in your Adelaide home, however, if you go for the cheapest quote you could end up with exactly what you paid for. Before you even ask for a quote, do a bit of research on a few different balustrade companies. Make sure you have satisfactory answers to questions such as how reliable are they? Are they registered builders? Do their balustrades meet all Australian Standards? Ask around, do they have a strong reputation in the industry, and can you take a look at satisfied customer reviews or testimonials. Once you have the sorted out the better and more experienced companies from the rest, you can start asking for quotes. When you do approach companies for quotes, make sure you ask questions such as what the quote includes? What are the estimated installation times? Is there a warranty? And, do all products meet standards and building codes? By asking the right questions, you can make an informed decision on what is best for your home.

Don’t cut corners

While it can be tempting to skip the formalities and just install your balustrade yourself, you could cause yourself further dramas. When you install it yourself, you aren’t covered by insurance or the warranties that you would if you had an expert install the balustrades for you. You also risk not making your balustrades 100% compliant. Just imagine if your family or friends had an accident because of an unsafe balustrade? You could risk hefty fines or much worse! It’s not worth the risk, always make sure you have a professional install your balustrades for you.
