Has anyone tried to replace the typical wooded stair balusters with new iorn ones?
Is the hand rail difficult to remove and use over? how about the hole in the steps, will a wrought iron be to small...etc etc..
lots of questions?
Thanks in advance

While it is a possibility you can reuse the handrail, it all depends on the type of iron balusters you use and the current code for spacing.

You will have to take measurements on the balluster top and bottom holes. Are the balluster tops square ended or pins? Is a shoe rail used on the bottom. How are the ballusters connected? Nails&glue?....dowels? The railing is always removable. How easy will depend on how it was installed. Have you picked out the new ballusters?

Maybe you should post a few pictures
