I'm about to pull the pin on a very large deck project that will have
about 15 4-foot spaces for balusters. I would like to use metal tubing
to form the balusters, held in horizontal wooden supports. Something
like 1-inch electrical conduit, set on 4" centers, is what I have in mind.
However, I want a powder-coated or enameled finish. Obviously, I can cut
a whole ton of conduit or other tubing to length and have it PC'ed or
painted, but my guess is that would cost as much as the rest of the deck
Does anyone have a suggestion for getting metal finished with a glossy,
weather-resistant color coat, or where I might buy a ton of
approximately 2-foot lengths of such material already coated?
Any and all suggestions welcome...
