Staircases: When we are looking at home renovations, one of the most often overlooked areas of our home is the staircase. We seem to take it for granted, that it's basically just "there", and we may be guilty of forgetting the fact that our stairway is oftentimes the first impression that visitors get of our home the minute that they come through your front door. We are quite often so caught up in the styling of the bathroom, the living room or the kitchen, that we're apt to forget that replacing or upgrading the staircase would have a stunning effect on the general feel and look of our home. Included in the various benefits that you could achieve by considering this option are: developing extra storage by using the space underneath, allowing additional light into you home and creating more space or at least the illusion of more space. The moment it's finished you'll ask yourself just why you didn't do it sooner. So, the initial action towards getting this done is to track down an expert staircase fitter in North Petherton, who will be able to advise you with regards to exactly what is and is not appropriate for your house design.

Staircase Fitter North Petherton SomersetSince there are helical staircases, circular staircases, single winder staircases, half landing staircases, L shaped staircases, quarter turn staircases, cantilevered staircases, freestanding staircases, curved staircases, straight staircases, floating staircases, spiral staircases and a few others, you may find it is very difficult to decide precisely what form of staircase you prefer. Remember, not all of these styles will be appropriate for the framework of your home and having the assistance of an architect and a local North Petherton staircase fitter will aid you in making a properly informed choice.

To muddle your choices even further, staircases are also crafted from a number of different materials including: glass, hardwood, stone, steel, softwood, concrete, granite and marble, as well as amalgamating any of these materials, for instance steel and wood staircases. And, to give you even more options these materials are available in many finishes and varieties. For example hardwood staircases could be fabricated from ash, maple, sapele, teak, beech, walnut, iroko or oak, softwood staircases could be constructed from Scandinavian pine, southern yellow pine, redwood (pine), hemlock, parana pine or Douglas fir and steel staircases could have a powder coated, matt, shiney, brushed steel or galvanized finish.

Staircases - The Regulations: An additional consideration when building or picking staircases is that they need to adhere to really strict safety regulations (building regulations). In the UK these can be found in the Building Regulations Document K1 (regarding ladders, stairways and ramps) and documents M1 and M2 (regarding use and access of buildings). These relate to staircases in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, whilst Scotland has similar regulations, with just a couple of differences relating to the height of handrails, the minimum "going" of a domestic (private) stair (225mm rather than 220mm) and the maximum "rise" of a public staircase (170mm instead of 190mm). Detailed information of these regulations is beyond the scope of this particular guide, and should you want to get more information you can click here: K1 - Building Regulations, here: M1 and M2 Regulations - Access and Use, and for Scotland here: Building Regulations for Staircases in Scotland.

North Petherton Staircase Fitters SomersetRemodelling or Upgrading Your Current Staircase: By changing or rejuvenating your existing stairs, it's easy to make significant changes to the overall appearance of your house without spending an absolute fortune. There are various ways to accomplish this and the possibilities are endless and limited only by your creativity and imagination, but just for starters you might be able to get rid of the carpet and strip back a painted staircase to reveal its attractive wood finish, you may be able to exchange wood panelling for glass to bring in extra light, you could swap the handrails to give the whole staircase a totally different look, you might be able to utilize your wallpaper offcuts on your staircase risers to add a spectacular new effect and you could maybe turn a staircase around so that it runs in a different direction. This kind of project can be extremely enjoyable and perhaps you can do some of the work yourself, providing you with an even greater feeling of achievement.

Bespoke Staircases in North Petherton: By far the best way to obtain an effective and properly fitting staircase for your home is to have a bespoke staircase made individually for your home and its configuration. When you decide to get a bespoke staircase built for your house you will need to get in touch with a professional North Petherton staircase fitter and perhaps also a local North Petherton surveyor or architect as well, these experts will come to your property and measure up the location of your stairs and advise you about the optimal materials and design for the layout of your property. With all the correct measurements and details in hand they will normally get a CAD drawing made up of the staircase, coupled with an estimate of the cost based on your choice of design, materials and finish. You want to ensure that you get a complete price for all of the building, installation and finishing charges, along with the charges for removing your old stairs, so you know in advance the full cost of the project. If you cannot afford a bespoke staircase another possibility is to get a ready to fit staircase in the form of a kit or as an off the shelf product, the trouble with this option is that it's tricky to get a staircase that fits correctly into your allotted space, and clearly a staircase must fit securely into the available space, to be both pleasing to look at and safe.

Guide to Staircase Terms

String, Stringer or Stringer Board - The string is the inclined component which treads and risers are fixed to and which serve to transfer the loads of the stair to the structure. A staircase will by and large have two strings, one on either side of the steps, a broad stairway can also have a 3rd string placed in the centre to add strength. Staircase strings may be cut or closed, open or cut strings will have the uppermost edges cut away to follow the stepped path of the risers and treads and reveal their profile when looked at from the side.

Staircase Installation North Petherton SomersetRiser - The riser is the upright section in between one step and another, it can be closed or open. In concert, a tread and a riser creates one step.

Tread - A tread is the bit of the stairway that you tread on when going up or descending the stairs, it is roughly the as thick as a floorboard. Together, a riser and a tread comprises one step.

Going - The going of a staircase step is the distance (horizontally) measured between the front edge of a tread nosing to the front edge of the nosing of the tread above it. This will be the distance someone travels forward with each and every step. The minimum allowed "going" is 220mm for domestic homes in the United Kingdom. The going of the whole staircase is the total distance the staircase runs along the floor and is the measurement from the face of the uppermost riser to the face of the lowest riser.

Newel - A newel post is a large structural post or baluster which is used to securely anchor the handrail to the floor or to the rest of the staircase structure. Newel posts are employed at the top and bottom of stairways and anywhere the stairs change direction.

Spindle or Baluster - The spindles or balusters are the vertical posts which infill the gap in between the baserail and the handrail, they pass any load from the handrail to the main framework and also limit the openings between. In the United Kingdom, building regulations stipulates that a sphere 100 millimetres across should be unable to pass through the space between 2 balusters, making sure that children are unable to fall through the gap.

Balustrade - A balustrade is what we call the entire handrail arrangement that separates and encloses individual areas of the staircase and prevents people from falling off the edge. The balustrade can be fixed on one or on both sides of a staircase and can be made up of handrails, baserails, newel posts, panels, balusters or spindles, caps and various other decorative elements.

Spiral Staircase Fitters North Petherton SomersetMore Staircase Parts and Terms - Finial or Newel Cap: Newel caps or finials are the ornamental components which are fitted on top of newel posts, Nosing: A nosing is the part of a tread that protrudes beyond the face of a riser underneath it, Winder: A winder is a step that's wider at one side than the other, that enables a staircase to change direction by 90° or 180° without a landing, Rake: The rake is the angle of the stairway as dictated by the ratio between the going and the rise.

Spiral Staircases North Petherton Somerset - What is a Spiral Staircase?: A spiral staircase is a stair which pivots around a central newel, column or support going from the floor to the ceiling, with a handrail on one side and with all the steps fastened to the column on the other. A spiral staircase could be an extremely charming centrepiece for anyones home, and also need far less space than a regular staircase, they are ideal for spaces that would be too small for standard staircase layouts. However, on the down side,, spiral staircases are not the easiest of things to ascend and tend to be extremely tricky for the disabled and elderly, they are likewise pretty useless when you have to move articles of furniture, up or down the stairs. Which means you must think carefully before installing one, particularly if you are planning on selling your home any time soon. Spiral staircases are used both indoors and outdoors and are in general fabricated from wood or metal, or often a mixture of both, they are especially a good choice for gaining access to places like roof balconies and lofts or whenever there is limited space.
