What are the steps to redesign an existing staircase?

One of the first steps to redesigning an existing staircase and creating custom stairs is deciding what aspects of your current staircase you want to keep. The two major parts of a staircase are the stairs and railings. If you want to keep any of their features we will need to work around what will be left behind. The designs drawn will incorporate what you want to keep. As long as current pieces of your staircases go along with the design you have in mind, they can be beneficial in helping save you money in the long run. The more that you keep intact, the less expensive new staircases will be.

On the other hand, if you want to start with a brand-new design we can do that for you as well. With new designs you have the opportunity to change the shape, style and overall look of your staircase. There are much fewer limits to what we can accomplish for you and you will be able to freely choose each new aspect of your staircases. The only redesign limit will be the space in which your current staircase sits.

To design the perfect new staircase for you we need to sit down and talk about your vision for the project. Are you looking for a modern staircase or do you want a traditional staircase? Would you like your railing the made out of wood or iron? Will your staircase follow the path of the previous staircase or will we be reconstructing the flow of the new staircase completely? All of these questions and more will need to be answered before we start with your project. The best thing you can do to help this process go smoothly is to show us pictures of your ideal new staircase. Visuals are always the most helpful tool when we are designing new staircases for our customers. They help us bring your vision to life.

Once we know exactly what you want we will begin drawing up your new staircase design. It will also be time to start picking out the different features of your staircase. Depending on whether you’re thinking about picking a staircase in a catalog or having a custom staircase designed, you’ll need to pick out everything from the materials (wood vs metals) to the finishes. After everything is picked out it’s time for us to get to work. Construction will begin and we will start to install your new staircase. The length of this process will be determined by the size and level of customization of the project.
