Good staircase products are hard to find so I‘ll try to give you as much knowledge about it as possible. Whether you are building or purchasing a staircase for your home, considering certain points at the beginning can dramatically help you avoid mistakes and increase your satisfaction in the end. First of all, you should know that there are two different classes of stairs. The first class is a mill-made stair, which is usually produced in a mill shop and can be shipped to your house for assembly and installation. The second class is a carpenter-built stair, which is a stair built on-site by a carpenter. Carpenter- built stairs is less expensive and allows the stair to be dressed up with a hardwood. Secondly, the functionality and design aspects of the stairs is another important consideration. Thirdly, the construction materials that you choose for your stairs will dictate the outcome of your finished product, and remember that quality materials will produce a quality job. Staircase production and installation take time, precision, and knowledge. Before building or installing your staircase you must determine the size and the length of the stairwell and the number of risers, treads, and stair railings you need for your staircase. Also, you must consider what type of staircase you want: straight, L shaped with a landing, curved, complete turn around 180 degrees, winders, etc. If you’re a handy person, you can try to produce or install the staircase yourself. However, if you feel it is overwhelming, I highly recommend hiring a carpenter who can get the job done right the first time. Good luck.
