Delaware Handrails and Railings

Graydie Welding does not repair or install vinyl or any other form of plastic, but we do remove and replace with real handrails and railings.

Here's a gaurantee you'll never get from my competitors
I guarantee my handrails will remain structurally sound forever and NEVER crack your steps
Graydie Welding is named after our daughters Graycie and Edie.

Just found this 2 year old post on Angie's List.----
He installed handrails on steps in the front of our home. He helped us to choose an attractive design, something more interesting than the standard blah railing.

Brian Bachman is the owner/designer of the company. He arrived on time and did a fantastic job installing the railing, which is so attractive outside our home (pictures are on his website). Brian is an artist who creates beautiful designs in steel, not only railing and fences. He love...s his work and is very particular to make sure it's done well, using the best materials. Our job was a small one, and we had been having a hard time finding someone to do it. The only other estimate we got was for about $1,000 for this job, using stock railing that we specifically did not want. Brian pointed us toward interesting options at reasonable prices. We love the outcome, and our neighbors love it, too. We will surely call on him again - now I want wrought ironwork everywhere - and I wholeheartedly recommend him. He serves all of Delaware as well as New Jersey and Pennsylvania.


The newest member of the family. Been a rough 4 years for this poor girl. I have know idea where the SPCA got her but it must have been bad. She is scared of everything that moves, very timid, hard to get close to and covered with scars. The ends of her tail was cut off and her ear torn off. But it will be smooth sailing from here on out. Those ears! And you should hear the bark!

Today I installed 2 arbors with 2 climbing red knockout roses planted at the base of each at my dads house.

Graydie Welding does not now and has never used hollow balusters
just another reason I am able to gaurantee my work for life while my local competitors can not.
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.

Stop by and pick something out.
Apparently my sculpture at The Kent County Levy Court is a Pokemon Stop.

Done. Paint tomorrow then ready for pickup and installation at a new Mexican restaurant opening in Rehoboth.

I just picked up my daughter at Central Middle School in Dover. Here's another example of why you should never let a contractor bore big holes in anything outside.

3 years ago...
It was 3 years ago I spent a week volunteering with artist Robert Stackhouse rebuilding his brass sculpture The Delaware Passage at The Copeland Sculpture Garden located on the grounds of The Delaware Art Museum. This was my first time brazing brass and it worked out fantastic!
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.

All position aluminum pipe welding on a rocking boat at Indian River Marina.
Come pick something out at 100 Old North Rd.
I did some volunteer work up at Riverview Cemetery in Wilmington today.
People keep ripping the perimeter fence apart so they can cut thru the cemetery instead of walking around.
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.

Below is the steel Don Quixote Sculpture I was commissioned to replace.
My latest piece, a steel sculpture of Don Quixote. This was a $900 ordered piece that will be mounted in a garden in the suburbs of Washington DC. in 3 weeks.
