A glass handrail can be a wonderful choice for use in the home. These handrails are sleek, beautifully designed, and instantly add a touch of style and sophistication. Unfortunately, however, even the best handrails won’t last forever.
All glass handrails will eventually start to show the signs of wear and tear. The good news is that if you need glass handrail repair or a glass handrail replacement, the expert professionals at Glass Solutions will be glad to assist you.
Signs You Need A New Glass Handrail
One of the first warning signs to be on the lookout for is cracking of your glass handrail. You may see visible cracks, or, if you look closely, you might notice sharp, jagged edges where pieces of the handrail have broken off. Not only is this unattractive, but it’s also dangerous and could lead to injury for the next person to use your handrail!
Even if your glass handrail doesn’t look broken, it still may not be in the best shape. For instance, if you notice that your handrail feels loose or wobbly when you grasp it, then it is most definitely time for repairs or a replacement, depending on the severity of the problem. A loose handrail could easily cause a person to fall or lose his grip, which could be dangerous for anyone but especially for those who are elderly or disabled. Don’t take chances with the safety of your home; address problems with loose handrails immediately.
Finally, if your handrail has a rubber cover or other additional pieces, make sure that they are always firmly attached to the handrail. There is nothing more unattractive than a cover that is peeling or coming up. Furthermore, this problem is usually a quick, inexpensive fix, so there’s no excuse for leaving your handrail in this type of condition.
