Why You Need a Staircase and Banister Specialist

Whether you are considering building a new staircase, or repairing and restoring an existing one, the quality of design, construction and installation is a vital concern.

There are a number of situations that might require a staircase and banister specialist, from taking on a large-scale building project to repairing weak and creaking steps. Staircase specialists possess a unique level of craftsmanship to ensure that stairs act as not just a functional connection between living levels, but that they also meet your aesthetic design requirements. There is a variety of designs and types, from modern staircases and banisters to rustic ones, and from spiral to traditional L-shape. Whatever your needs, a staircase specialist can advise on the best design and materials for you.

What Does a Staircase and Banister Specialist Do?

Building a new staircase — or repairing an existing one — is a task that requires specialist knowledge. Design, comfort and, of course, safety, all play a major role. Some of the services that staircase fitters and staircase remodel contractors might offer include:

  • Staircase and banister design: Every staircase build starts with a design. During planning, certain dimensions must be observed to ensure smooth and safe access to living areas. Staircase and banister contractors can create floor plan designs that consider various staircase layouts to determine what will work best for the space available. If you also want to install staircase lighting, your specialist will be able to ensure your staircase design can accommodate it.
  • Staircase and banister installation: Building a new staircase involves following a careful process. Precise planning and measurements are critical, as even a small error can compromise the safety of your stairs. When calculating steps, the amount of space available will determine the shape and slope ratio of the staircase. A staircase specialist will consider all these aspects in the design, production and installation of your stairs, in addition to mounting the banister and fitting its spindles.
  • Fitting and safety regulations: Your staircase specialist will ensure that your staircase is fitted securely and according to safety regulations. Stair and banisters fitters will ensure the various guidelines are adhered to, preventing slips and falls.
  • Advice on the right type of staircase: When building a new staircase, it’s important to understand that staircases come in many different shapes and sizes. The shape of your stairs will depend on the space you have available and the size of your room. You can choose from spiral stairs, straight stairs, L-shaped stairs, curved staircases and many other options besides, but it’s important to make sure you have the space and foundations to accommodate them.
  • Advice on the right material for your staircase: Just as with stair types, there’s a lot of variety when it comes to the material your staircase is made from. Glass, steel and wood will all give your home a unique aesthetic and will require different means of construction — staircase and banister fitters can provide advice on what’s right for you.
