Delaware Handrails and Railings
 
The Graydie Welding Guarantee
I stand behind my work. If anything ever goes wrong with a handrail I built I'll fix it. Handrails built right will last 100 years.

When I'm in the area I will stop for free inspections and repaints.

 
state troopers get a 10% discount on handrails and window guards.
 
 
You can tell Graydie Welding handrails by the bottom horizontal support. I use box tubing instead of channel and have for 10 years.
 
 
Been 6 years since I spent a week at The Delaware Art Museum with artist Robert Stackhouse rebuilding his piece 'Delaware Passage'.

Today I ripped out this newly installed vinyl ....
...and built a real set of handrails.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I was happy to see my buddy Ernest Camoirano today and get a handrail in for him.   We all need something to grab even if it’s only one step.

My youngest daughter earning her money cleaning the steel for our handrails
 
I ripped out more of this newly installed Vinyl junk and built a real set of handrails.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This is why we don't recomend powder coating
this gate was made and pwder coated by someone else
and this is my oldest daughter earning her money painting this poorly powder coated gate
 
 
 
 
 
and this is why I don't use channel or flat bar for that bottom horizontal
Graydie Weldng only used 1" box tubing for that bottom horizontal so this kind of damage is never a concern
 
 
 
Another reason to avoid Vinyl, dogs.

Repairs
 
Who does the state housing authority go to for handrails? Graydie Welding because I guarantee my work for life. Here’s an example of a bad handrail installation and how much damage it caused. Along with the cost of the new handrail I installed today how much would it be to remove and replace that huge granite slab?
Dont let anyone bore big holes in your brick block stone or conrete.
 

Brian, I just wanted to thank you for giving my disabled brother some of his independence back. You did an amazing job on the railing at ------------- in Milford and I can't thank you enough. It is refreshing to find such quality work especially with such a high quality human being. My father was a well respected mechanic and he taught me to respect those that have skill. You sir, have certainly gained my respect.
Thank you from the Mallard and Gallo families!

Moved a beautiful gazebo today, 9/2/2016
 

Working at the postal inspectors shooting range today. I have no idea who built and installed these handrails and although they look good they have already cracked the concrete in a dozen spots.

Don't let anyone bore big holes in your concrete brick block or stone!
 
 
Here is an entrance gate in Centerville De Irenee Dupont and I repaired together.
 

I welded the fixture mounts to these light poles in Wild Quail.

I went to this beautiful house today 10/14/2015  ---

so I ripped out...
And I installed a proper handrail.

Some recent welding at a shooting range. Very interesting.
 
Sold $80, flower box for a deck.
 
Here are some solid steel flower garden borders. These are for those take their gardening seriously as they are about half the price of a handrail the same length.
 
 
 
 
 

12 feet tall. This will make a great climbing rose trellis. It needs a tight climber so it will maintain the cross shape in flower. $200.

Come pick something out at 100 Old North Rd.
 
I did some volunteer work up at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington today.
 
Here's more aluminum railing headed for the scrap yard. People keep putting it in and I keep ripping it out. Installing this of aluminum handrail and railing is a mistake people only make once.
 
 
My work horse!
 
These crosses are about 16 inches. $40 each.
 
Today 5/28/2015 I will volunteer at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington repairing some old wrought iron fence.
 
 
 
Here's an AC condenser guard I made and installed at Franks Wine in Wilmington. These run a little less than the condenser itself and while that seems like a lot it only seems like a lot until you have to replace the condenser.
