BALCONIES, DECKS, PORCHES & FIRE ESCAPES
Baltimore Railings & Stairs can provide you with a number of options for all of the following: Decks, Balconies, Porches and Fire Escapes. One of our decks in Fells Point is shown above. We have done work all over the Baltimore, MD area.
Any size project is fine - It doesn't matter whether you just need a small front or back porch for your house, or a large deck for your home or a commercial building, we would be happy to talk to you, give you a quote and then get the work done.
Welded for strength - Whichever one of these products you are getting, there are building codes that need to be met. You wouldn't want to be standing on it when it starts to give way. That is why we weld the components together for increased strength.
For balconies, they range from what is known as a Juliet balcony after Romeo and Juliet. (See picture below.) It isn't much more than a railing or balustrade in front of a door or tall window. Larger balconies can support several people and are typically cantilevered out from the wall.
A deck can be kind of like a large balcony, but because of its size, it will have support columns or posts that support the weight. Some decks come off a second floor doorway and they need more bracing for stability than lower decks that would come off the first floor. Not that these don't need bracing, just a bit less than the higher ones.
More often in commercial buildings than residential you need fire escapes. These can be stairs coming down on the outside of the building from the second floor, or incorporated into a deck. The look can be very simple or much more ornate.
With any of these options you will need railings, also known as balustrades or banisters. There are many choices which are discussed on the page on this website about railings.
