Do you want to elevate the look of your home and add some "wow" factor? Installing new stairs might just be the answer! Not only can it change the overall appearance of your home, but it can also increase its value.

But, where do you even begin?

Stair installation can seem overwhelming and intimidating, but fear not! This guide will give you the low-down on our process.

Step 1: Measure Twice, Cut Once

You don't want to be halfway through the stair installation process only to realize that your measurements were off. We take the time to measure your space accurately by making sure you have the correct height, width, and length of the space before ordering any materials.

Step 2: Choosing Materials

When choosing materials, we consider not only the overall look, but also the durability and safety of the stairs. Some of the most popular options include hardwood, laminate, and carpet. It’s important to make sure to choose the right materials for your space and budget.

Step 3: Tools and Supplies

Here are some of the essential tools needed for a successful stair installation project:

  • Circular saw

  • Jigsaw

  • Drill

  • Measuring tape

  • Carpenter's square

  • Safety glasses

  • Gloves

Step 4: Installation

Once all of the materials and tools are acquired, it's time to get started. Here's a general overview of the stair installation process:

  • Cut and install the stair treads

  • Install the risers

  • Add the nosing

  • Secure everything in place

  • Finish with the handrail

Step 5: Safety First

Don't forget about safety! We ensure that your stairs are up to code and meet safety regulations. This includes having a secure and stable handrail and making sure the steps are even and slip-resistant.

Tips & Tricks for a Successful Stair Installation

Stair installation can be a complex project, and it's important to make sure it's done correctly. For safety reasons we:

  • Always use the correct type of screws or nails for the material we’re working with. This will make sure that the stairs are secure and stable.

  • Take our time with each step of the process, and don't rush. Cutting corners or hurrying through the project can lead to mistakes and potential safety hazards.

  • Choose a handrail that not only matches the style of your stairs, but is also comfortable to hold and easy to grip.

  • Make sure to acclimate the wood to your home's climate before installation when using hardwood. This will help prevent the wood from warping or cracking over time.
