"Jason did a fantastic job on installing new wire balustrade on our deck. He was also very helpful advising material requirements (additional posts) to comply with Australian standards to ensure spacing between posts was legal. Jason was also very approachable and I felt like noting was too much trouble during the process. Would definitely use Jason again!"

Top Balustrading related questions

What’s the difference between a balustrade and a baluster?

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. 

When is balustrading required?

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. 

Do I need planning permission before getting a balustrade?

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.

What are the factors to consider in balustrade installation?

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.

How high should a balustrade be?

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.

What type of glass do I need for balustrading?

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.
