OK, I know that sounds like a really dumb question. It probably is. ;o)
After researching some railing options for our front steps, I decided to take the cheap way out and go for the ‘industrial’ look and use standard pipe for the actual rail. I have a choice between Galvanized and Black pipe (and, well, copper, but that’s not a cheap option anymore).
What is the better option for outdoor use? I’m not really sure what makes black pipe what it is. Are one of the two options more easily painted down the road?
