Building Stairs

With stairs remodeling, you are faced with two options: staircase assembly kit or custom built stairs. Which ever choice you select, the end result should yield a properly constructed staircase - safe, functional, comfortable under feet, and visually attractive.

Building Stairs Remodeling NY Services include but not limited to:

A home improvement building stair project must follow national and local building-code requirements. To be able to ascend and descend stairs in a safe manner, staircase design must incorporate sufficient headroom and proper width of treads and steps.

Several thumb rules exist to ensure a comfortable descent or ascend of a staircase. The wider the tread, the lower the riser must be, or rather the higher the riser, the narrower the tread. If a unit rise is the measurement for one step of the staircase and unit run is the measurement for one tread - then each unit rise and each unit run must be the same. When going up or down staircases, your body automatically adjusts pace according to height of steps. Unequal rise and run create uneven staircases where users can easily trip.

Stairs should welcome the visitor not only with their functionality, but also with their gracious form. The width-to-length ratio of the entire staircase is one of the most important details to take into consideration when designing any stairs. If elevation is high, break staircase with several landing platforms to avoid a very steep staircase. Handrails are not just aesthetic elements of stairs - they should be designed to provide rigid and well braced support for average hand size when approaching and leaving the staircase.
