If the property agrees, then it is up to you whether to demolish or not, but under normal circumstances, considering the safety issue, the property does not allow the demolition of the guardrail without permission.

Whether it is a balcony or a bay window, the guardrail does not look beautiful when installed indoors, but compared with the beautiful, safety is still placed in the front, especially for high-rise residents or those with children at home. If the guardrail is removed, only one layer of glass windows will be left for protection. If the quality of the glass is not good, it will be very dangerous.

Most of these guardrails are to improve the decorative effect and cannot play a protective role. Therefore, if you find that the guardrail at home meets these two conditions, then remove and replace it early!

If there is a problem with the quality and height of the original guardrail when closing the balcony, then under the conditions allowed by the property, it is recommended that you remove it, and then re-install a better quality and beautiful guardrail. If the original guardrail is of good quality and you don't care about its existence, you should keep it. After all, no matter how strong the balcony is, there is no guardrail.
