Top Balustrading related questions
Balusters are usually the vertical, vase-shaped posts on railings. These posts can be made of materials like wood, iron, or stone. Meanwhile, “balustrade” is the collective term for balusters joined together. In other words, a baluster consists of several balusters evenly spaced out from each other. The railings on a balcony, terrace, or porch is called a balustrade.
Balustrading may be required in areas where someone could fall from a height of one metre or more. These areas include a balcony, accessible roof, stairway, ramp, or hallway. It’s also advisable to get a balustrade for elevated decking, even if the deck is low. Balustrading can add safety to such tripping hazards.
Not all balustrading installations need planning permission. But you will need to check with your local authority. You may also consult your bannister fitter and find out if your project needs planning permission. If you need planning permission, your balustrading expert may do structural calculations, load tests, or provide other proof that your balustrading meets the required standards.
It would be best to consider the safety guidelines specific to your design and the surface where you’re installing the balustrade. They come in different designs, so you should also choose a style that suits the look of your home. There are also several balustrading options for different budgets.
The height of your balustrade depends on how high the surface is from the ground. It should be 900 mm high if you’re installing it on a low-level deck that’s 600 mm from the ground. It may also have to be 1100 mm for a high-level deck up to 600 mm high. These measurements should give you a general idea, but you may consult with your balustrading fitter for local guidelines.
The type of glass you use for balustrading depends on its purpose and your preferences. For privacy, you may opt for opaque or tinted glass balustrading. You’ll need glass that’s appropriate to your space’s occupancy and wind load. In general, glass for balustrading comes in varying colours, opacities, and finishes. Your Tasker can recommend the best type of glass to use for your project.

What do balustrading services include?
Balustrading services include the designing, installing, and repairing of balustrades. Whether you need balustrading to secure a balcony or add a nice design touch to your home, Taskers are here to help. Below is a list of balustrading services you can book on Airtasker.
Measuring the balustrade site
Before jumping into your balustrade installation, it’s essential to plan carefully. This way, you can avoid any costly mistakes or overspending on materials. A balustrade expert can survey and measure your site. As a result, they can make sure the quantity and measurements of your materials are correct.
Your Tasker can then recommend adjustments according to the condition of your site. For example, they may recommend the best materials to use and the design of your balustrade.
Procuring the balustrading materials
After consultations and inspections, your balustrading expert may help you find the suppliers. Balustrading materials for classic designs include timber, iron, and stone. Moreover, glass balustrading and stainless steel are great options for a more modern look.
Your Tasker may also handle the pickup and delivery of your materials from the supplier or home improvement store. Additionally, an interior designer can design your overall space, so your flooring and furniture go well with your balustrade.
Installing the balustrade
Taskers can install all sorts of balustrading, including stainless steel, wood, glass, wrought iron, and aluminium. They can ensure a correct and safe installation so you can have a balustrade that will stand the test of time. On Airtasker, you may also hire an architect to make sure your balustrade looks good and is structurally sound.
Repairing the balustrade
Baluster repair includes minor fixes like re-tightening steel wire rope balustrades and more tedious repairs like replacing bannisters. A Tasker may also fix your chipped bannisters by filling in the chew marks with wood putty. If necessary, you may also hire a Tasker to replace your damaged bannisters or stair railings. (Taskers can also take away your discarded bannisters, so you don’t have to worry about the clutter!)
Aside from balustrade repair, cleaning services are also available on our platform. So feel free to hire a Tasker to wipe down your balusters from time to time. With regular repairs and cleaning, your balustrade can last for the years to come.

Install timber balustrade + gate and screening
Glebe NSW, Australia
23rd Aug 2022
Hello, I need to install a timber balustrade roughly 3.5m across. I’d like a gate at one end measuring about 800mm. My decking is merbau so I’d like it to match. (With the timber running horizontally). I also have an area above the garage that I’d like to install something similar as a privacy screen. 3.5m across and roughly 1m high. Job is in Glebe. Please quote including materials. I’m happy for the area above the fence to be made with any wood as long as I can stain it similar to the fence palings. Please see photo, I have removed the glass balustrade and this is where I’d like the new one installed. - Due date: Flexible
Extra balustrade rows to existing deck + timber screens attach to fenc
Haberfield NSW, Australia
17th Aug 2022
We need a qualified carpenter or experienced timber worker to do 2 jobs....preferably both in the one day, but flexible with this. JOB 1 - Install 32 more rows of wire balustrade on our deck (8 of these are approx. 4m in length; 16 are approx. 2m in length and 8 are approx. 1.2m in length). For the 4m long rows, there's a 9mm timber post to drill through to get the wire fed through. All Merbau. Our deck builder had no accountability for building codes! We need this fixed for certification purposes. See attached photos - basically need to insert a row in between each row to reduce the gap to around 600mm instead of 1200mm. It's quality Merbau timber so we need someone who knows what they're doing with a drill and screws. I have all the stainless steel clips kits and 3.2mm (7x7) galvanised wire, so it's just the labour and your tools that we need, so you need to bring a swage tool that's appropriate for these measurements. JOB 2 - Install 2 x timber merbau or hard wood privacy screens against our existing fence (steel posts will likely be required for support). We will supply the screens - they are approx. 1800 x 900 each screen. Thank you
