Staircases: Bearing in mind it is very often the first thing which people notice whenever they enter your main entrance door, the staircase is one of the more regularly overlooked elements in our homes. We run up and down them all day long, our children like to play on them them or perhaps are sent there to the "naughty step" when they misbehave, and often we may sit on them ourselves when speaking on the telephone. Yet, in the case of home renovations, the majority of us just dab some paint on the stairway and move along to the kitchen, the sitting room or the bedroom, for those large refurbishments. The fact remains, you are able to radically enhance the look and feel of your house by replacing or upgrading your staircase, you can increase the storage, you can generate more space or you can allow more light into your home. So, the first approach towards getting this started is to get yourself a specialist staircase fitter in Bath, who will be able to offer advice about precisely what will and will not work in your house design.

Staircase Fitter Bath SomersetDue to the fact that there are a wide range of designs of staircase to choose from, it may be difficult to determine just which one is better for you or your needs. Included in the numerous patterns of staircase available are: L shaped staircases, freestanding staircases, curved staircases, quarter turn staircases, single winder staircases, floating staircases, spiral staircases, helical staircases, quarter landing staircases, cantilevered staircases, circular staircases, straight staircases and others. Once more, seeking the guidance of a local Bath staircase installation expert together with that of an architect is recommended.

It is not solely the layout and design that you have to settle on, since staircases are built from a variety of materials such as: metal, hardwood, stone, concrete, marble, glass, softwood and granite, you can also have combinations of these materials, a common example being steel and wood staircases. Even these materials can come in assorted finishes and varieties. For example softwood staircases could be constructed from parana pine, Scandinavian pine, southern yellow pine, hemlock, redwood or Douglas fir, hardwood staircases could be made out of teak, maple, oak, beech, iroko, walnut, sapele or ash and steel staircases could have a galvanized, powder coated, shiney, brushed or matt finish.

Regulations Regarding Stairs: Another point when you are building or choosing stairs or staircases is that they must observe really stringent safety regulations (building regulations). In the United Kingdom these are covered by the Document K1 of the Building Regulations 2010 (regarding ramps, stairways and ladders) and documents M1 and M2 (for the access and use of buildings). These regulations cover staircases in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, while Scotland has basically the same regulations, with just 3 or 4 variations with regards to the heights of handrails, the minimum "going" of a domestic (private) stair (225mm instead of 220mm) and the maximum allowed "rise" of a public stair (170mm as opposed to 190mm). Detailed information of these regulations is outside the scope of this particular article, if you need to learn more facts you can click here: K1 - Building Regulations, here: M1 and M2 Documents - Use and Access, and for Scotland here: Scottish Staircase Regulations.

Bath Staircase Fitters SomersetRestoring or Upgrading Your Current Staircase: Needless to say it's often possible to to appreciably change the appearance of your home by simply rejuvenating or altering your existing staircase. The advantages of this are very clear, not least the fact that it will be a lot more cost-effective to undertake. For example you could perhaps replace the handrails to give the whole staircase an entirely different appearance, you could flip a staircase around so it runs in the opposite direction, you could utilize those odd lengths of wallpaper on your staircase risers to create an amazing new effect, you could remove the carpets and strip back a painted staircase to reveal its beautiful wood finish and you could exchange wood panelling for glass to let in extra light. These are just five ideas you might look at, there are lot's more restricted only by your imagination.

Bespoke Staircases in Bath: By far the preferred way to buy an effective and properly fitting staircase for your house is to have a bespoke staircase crafted exclusively for your home and its configuration. If you decide to have a bespoke staircase manufactured for your property you'll need to get in touch with an experienced Bath staircase fitter and perhaps a local Bath architect or surveyor too, these experts will come to your property and survey and measure where your stairway is to fit and advise you of the most appropriate design and materials for the specific layout of your property. Once they have all the measurements and data they will normally return to the factory and get a CAD drawing done of the staircase, and subsequently an estimate of the costs based on your choice of design, materials and finish. You must make certain you get a complete price for all of the manufacturing, installing and finishing costs, along with the costs for taking out your existing stairs, so you know before you begin the total cost of the project. If you feel that a bespoke staircase is too costly, the alternative is to get an off the shelf package or a ready to use staircase in the form of a kit, the trouble with this approach is that it is hard to find yourself a staircase that will fit into your property layout properly, and needless to say a staircase has got to fit nicely into the space available, to be both safe to use and beautiful to look at.

Short Glossary of Staircase Terms

String, Stringer or Stringer Board - The stringer is the sloping section to which the risers and treads are fastened which in essence transfer the loads of the stair to the framework. A staircase will nearly always have 2 stringers, one on either side of the steps, a broader staircase may also have one more stringer in the middle to add strength. Stairway stringers could be cut or closed, open or cut stringers will have the uppermost edges cut and shaped to match the stepped shape of the risers and treads and reveal their profile when looked at from the side.

Staircase Installation Bath SomersetRiser - The riser is the piece that constitutes the vertical face of the step, between two treads. This may also be open (open riser). Together, a riser and a tread make up one step.

Tread - The tread is the flat bit of a staircase step which people walk on when climbing up or coming down the stairs, its thickness is similar to that of a floorboard. Collectively, a riser and a tread creates one step.

Going - The going of a step is the horizontal distance between the front edge of one tread nosing to the front edge of the next tread nosing. This will be the distance you travel forward with every step. In the UK the minimum "going" for a private structure is 220 millimetres. The going of the entire staircase is the total length the staircase travels across the floor and it is determined by the measurement from the front surface of the bottom riser to the front surface of the uppermost riser.

Newel Post - A newel is a sturdy structural post or baluster that is employed to firmly secure the handrail to the floor or to the rest of the staircase. Newel posts are utilized at the bottom and top of stairways and anywhere the stairs change direction.

Baluster - The balusters or spindles are the vertical posts that secure the handrail by joining it to the baserail, balusters constrain the width of the openings and transfer loads on the handrail to the main structure of the staircase. In the United Kingdom, building regulations (K1) establishes that a sphere 100mm across must be unable to pass between 2 spindles/balusters, so children can't go through them.

Balustrade - A balustrade is the complete assembled handrail system which encloses and separates individual areas of the staircase and prevents people from falling off the edge. The balustrade might be fixed on either or on each side of a stairway and can be made up of caps, panels, baserails, balusters, newel posts, handrails and various other fancy components.

Spiral Staircase Fitters Bath SomersetMore Staircase Parts and Terms - Rake: The rake is the incline of the stairway as dictated by the ratio between the rise and the going, Nosing: A nosing is the leading edge of a step that juts out beyond the front face of the riser under it, Finial or Newel Cap: The newel cap or finial is the fancy element placed at the top of a newel post, Winder: A winder is a tread that's deeper at one side than the other, which allows a staircase to change direction by 90 or 180 degrees without a landing.

Spiral Staircases Bath Somerset - What is a Spiral Staircase?: A spiral staircase is a stairway that turns around a central column, newel post or support which ascends from floor to ceiling, with all the treads or steps connected to the central column on one side, and a handrail on the opposite side. A spiral staircase could be an extremely intriguing feature for your home, and at the same time require much less space than a customary staircase, they can be tucked into spaces that would not be big enough for standard staircase layouts. On the down side, spiral staircases are not the easiest of stairs to go up and down and often prove to be exceedingly tricky for older or disabled people, they're equally pretty useless if you need to move items of furniture, up or down. Therefore you really should think twice before installing one, particularly if you are intending to sell the house any time soon. Spiral staircases can be installed outdoors or indoors and are normally made from wood or metal, or often a combination of both, they're particularly handy for accessing places like attics and roof balconies where there isn't much space.

Staircase Fitter Bath Somerset - Suggestions for Choosing One: Among the old fashioned though still common ways of searching for a staircase fitter in Bath is to utilize local business directories or local newspapers, so you could take a look at some of the better local business directories for example Yell, Touch Local, Local Life, Cyclex, Yelp, City Visitor, Mister What, 118 118 or Thomson Local though anyone can get a listing in these directories so that there are no real guarantees regarding the reliability of any particular Bath staircase fitter, meaning you'll be relying on luck by employing this strategy.

There are various methods by which you might discover an ideal Bath staircase fitter and you can implement all or any of these to get the best Bath staircase fitter for the job: 1. Look on one of the reputable trades portals where customers post reviews for staircase fitters who've completed jobs for them previously, 2. Check out the local newspapers, Yellow Pages, business directories or flyers and leaflets put through your door, 3. Check with acquaintances, close friends, family or perhaps even next door neighbours to find out if they will suggest a staircase fitter in Bath who they have previously used and who made a good job.

Using the Search Engines: In this day and age one of the more obvious ways to search for a staircase fitter in Bath is by using Google. Even this strategy can be tricky, as you must sort out just which returned results are relevant to the phrase you entered. What you type in should be as specific as possible whenever conducting a search on Google or Bing, the usual phrase to input is "staircase fitter Bath" or "Bath staircase fitter", this could lead to bewildering results mostly from respected online directories for instance Yell and Thomson Local, or some of the tradesmen review sites such as Rated People and Trustatrader, still what may not be quite so noticeable to you is that generally the first 2 or 3 search results are paid ads, in other words someone will have paid to gain that position and in most cases they'll not be suitable for your requirements or even locally based, so you should ignore these and scroll further down the results. Now and again 1 or 2 of the search results could also be for job websites like Jobsite or Indeed advertising staircase fitting jobs in Bath, you can obviously safely disregard these results.

Every so often a result for an actual staircase fitter in Bath will feature on the first page of the results, you might be able to spot them if you look carefully, jump to page 2 or 3 and you'll most likely come across a larger proportion of real Bath staircase fitters. Typing a more precise search phrase is often a better idea, for example, if you are a lady living by yourself you may prefer to locate a lady staircase fitter, so you could search for "lady staircase fitter Bath", or you might possibly try "staircase installation Bath", "staircase fitters near me in Bath" or "staircase replacement cost Bath". You should also take into account that every staircase fitter in Bath won't possess a website, so another effective solution is to look for several hidden treasures within the business listings found beneath the map displayed on Google and Yahoo, whenever you carry out this kind of search.
