If just rusting from water or ice melt, but not experiencing significant loss of metal (or corroded bolts) that affect its stabilitiy, Painters and Handymen commonly fix this (or DIY) - by just power wire brushing and painting in place with a rusty metal primer then top coating with paint as desired, or more thoroughly removing the railing and wire brushing and/or grinding to bare clean metal, priming with a clean metal primer, then topcoating.

If the metal is highly rusted so losing integrity, then a few Handyman have the skills and welder - otherwise a Concrete company that does a lot of stairs and porches with metal railings, or a Wrought Iron specialty company. [the capitalized company types are your Search the List categories]
