Stairs Installation

A staircase can easily be the focal point of a home. As a functional area of the home, it’s a transitional space but also a visible and necessary part of the house’s architecture. In design, it can be used to reflect your style. Traditional, quirky, or contemporary, there are many different options available for the style of your staircase. Whatever your dream look may be for your new staircase, planning and designing starts by looking at different options and getting an idea of what your home’s style may be so that you can incorporate something functional and essential into the overall look. Unless you have extensive experience installing stairs or you are only installing a small staircase, this is generally a project for a contractor.


If you don’t want to have a custom design and you just want an easier installation experience, pre-finished steps are very easy to install and usually come already prepared and painted in the color that you want. These types of staircases are nailed into place wherever you need them in your home. They usually already have things like nosing already in place, which can also save you time from having to track down the nosing on every stair. Most staircase are built with wood or metal. You can make staircases that are completely constructed from material and essentially in every color imaginable. Most contractors are able to make one-of-a-kind staircases for your home as well, so you can have a custom design. The best way to create one of these staircases is to look at different styles and find a picture of different options that appeal to your interests.


Pre-finished stairs tend to be the most affordable option and work well if you need a small staircase or an option that will fit into your budget. However, the ideal option is to have a contractor construct or help you set up specifically designed stairs for your home so that you know all of the measurements and the design itself will work perfectly with your household. Contractors tend to be more costly, ranging in amount of hundreds of dollars to thousands for the installation. Although these figures are within the typical range for this project, it is always recommended to get in contact with a professional in your area in order to find out the exact cost based on your project. It’s important to remember that prices and estimated costs will vary depending on the region you are located in and also the service itself. In most circumstances, professional services will be able to provide you with a generalized estimate of the costs associated with your goals. In some cases, it may be possible to save money if the individual is able to handle the task on their own as a DIY project, though the success of the results greatly depends on the skills of the individual.
