Wrought iron railings are nostalgic and have a sophisticated look. You'll see these outside museums, public buildings, historical landmarks, and around residential properties. Because of their materials, these are very durable and provide a long life of functionality. However, over time, weather elements take their toll and wrought iron can become rusted, worn, and damaged. In some instances a bit of sanding and a new coat of weather resistant paint is enough to revive old wrought iron, just like an old wood deck. While in other instances, it can't be refurbished.
When wrought iron is beyond saving, it should be removed because it poses a safety issue. If someone were to lean or pull on these fragile railings, a fall could be eminent. That's certainly not worth the risk, especially if you own the property the railings are installed on.
Wrought iron railings provide a decorative touch to your outside porches and stairs. Wrought iron posts set in concrete might begin to rust and deteriorate over time, especially if you live in a wet climate. If the posts deteriorate to the point where they are shaky when you push against them, or are even falling out of the concrete, it’s time to remove them. --San Francisco Chronicle
In other circumstances, wrought iron might be in good condition, but clash with a remodeled home or an exterior makeover. In either case it's necessary to uninstall those wrought iron railings. Fortunately, you don't have to be a master contractor or even a handyman to remove those wrought iron railings. All you need is some common hand tools, a little materials, and a set of helping hands. To remove wrought iron railings, you’ll need a drill-driver with different heads, one or two large drop cloths, plastic bag, eye protection, heavy leather gloves, and a pry bar.
If you can't remove the wrought iron railings but they need to go, have a junk removal service come and pull it out to save you time and frustration.
