Staircases: When planning home improvements, among the most often ignored areas of the home is the staircase. It seems that we have the attitude, that it's simply just "there", and we may be guilty of forgetting the point that the stairs are very often the very first impression that visitors get of our home as soon as they stroll through the front door. We are mostly so immersed in modernizing the kitchen, the living room or the bathroom, that we're likely to forget that replacing or upgrading the staircase can have a dramatic effect on the all around appearance of our home. Among the mixture of benefits that you could gain by considering this are: gaining extra storage by using the space underneath, allowing increased light into you home and making more space or maybe the illusion of more space. By the time it is finished you'll be asking yourself just why you didn't do it years ago. Searching for an experienced staircase fitter in Taunton will now be the your top priority so as to get the appropriate advice that's needed.

Staircase Fitter Taunton SomersetNext will be to determine exactly what design of staircase you would like, from many kinds on the market. This is seldom an easy decision for you to make, because there is such a variety available to choose from and some of those won't be ideal for your house, however the options will be: L shaped staircases, freestanding staircases, helical staircases, single winder staircases, curved staircases, quarter turn staircases, cantilevered staircases, circular staircases, straight staircases, floating staircases, spiral staircases, half turn staircases and more.

It is not solely the design that you've got to decide upon, as staircases are also formed from various different materials such as: concrete, hardwood, glass, marble, granite, metal, softwood and stone, you can also have combinations of these materials, for example metal and wood staircases. More confusingly, even these materials come in assorted varieties and finishes. For instance softwood staircases may be constructed from Scandinavian pine, piranha pine, hemlock, southern yellow pine, redwood or Douglas fir, hardwood staircases can be fabricated from iroko, maple, ash, teak, beech, sapele, oak or walnut and metal staircases could have a matt, galvanized, shiney, powder coated or brushed finish.

Staircases - The Safety Regulations: An additional point to consider when you are picking or building staircases is that they must follow fairly stringent safety regulations. In Great Britain these are addressed by the Building Regulations Document K1 (in relation to ladders, stairs and ramps) and documents M1 and M2 (concerning use and access of buildings). These regulations relate to staircases in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, while Scotland has similar regulations, with just three or four differences in relation to the maximum "rise" of a public staircase (170mm rather than 190mm), the height of handrails and the minimum allowed "going" of a private (domestic) stair (225mm rather than 220mm). Detailed information of these rules and regulations is beyond the scope of this particular guide, and if you want to learn more about this you can look here: UK K1 Document, here: M1 and M2 Regulations, and the Scottish regulations here: Staircase Regulations in Scotland.

Taunton Staircase Fitters SomersetConverting or Restoring Your Current Staircase: Naturally it may be possible to to significantly change the look of your house by merely restoring or changing your current stairs. The advantages and benefits of this are very clear, one of the main ones being that it'll be significantly more cost-effective to carry out. For instance you might be able to make use of some offcuts of wallpaper on the risers of your staircase to create a spectacular new look, you might be able to turn a staircase around so it runs in another direction, you could perhaps get rid of the carpet and strip back a painted staircase to reveal its beautiful wood finish, you might be able to swap plywood panelling with glass to let in extra light and you may be able to swap the banisters to give the whole thing a completely different appearance. These are only some ideas you could try, there are many more restricted only by your imagination.

Bespoke Staircases in Taunton: While it's possible to locate staircases manufactured as "off the shelf" solutions and also in "kit" form, by far and away the preferable way to buy a properly fitting and effective one is to have a bespoke staircase designed and crafted especially for your house and layout. You may perhaps ask "what is bespoke?", well, that is a logical question, and the definition in the dictionary for "bespoke" is actually "made to order", which identifies the procedure clearly and simply. If you wish to have a bespoke staircase installed in your property you'll need to contact a specialist Taunton staircase fitter and perhaps also a local Taunton surveyor or architect as well, these experts will call at your house and survey and measure where your staircase is to fit and recommend the ideal materials and design for your particular property. With all the correct details and measurements in hand the process is usually to have a CAD drawing done of the staircase, combined with an estimation of the price in accordance with your choice of materials and finish, in actuality they will probably supply you with 2 or 3 price quotes based upon making the staircase in a choice of materials if you haven't made a decision on that issue. You will need to ensure that you get an inclusive price for all the manufacture, installing and finishing costs, along with the expenses for removing your old staircase, so you know in advance the full cost of the project.

Short Guide to Staircase Terms

String, Stringer or Stringer Board - The strings are the structural sections which secure the treads and risers in a staircase. A staircase will usually have two strings, one on each side of the steps, a broader staircase could perhaps have a third string placed in the middle for extra strength. Staircase strings might be closed or cut, cut or open strings will have the uppermost edges cut away to follow the shape of the risers and treads revealing their profile if looking at the side view.

Staircase Installation Taunton SomersetRiser - A riser is the vertical portion in between one step and another, it could be open or closed. A riser and a tread collectively comprises one step.

Tread - The tread is the horizontal or top part of a step that you tread on when going up or down the stairs, it is approximately the as thick as a floorboard. In concert, a tread and a riser makes up one step.

Going - The going of a stair step is the distance (horizontally) measured between the front edge of one step nosing to the front edge of the next step nosing. This equals the distance a person travels onwards with every step upwards or downwards. For private houses in the United Kingdom, the minimum "going" is 220mm. The going of the whole staircase is the overall distance the staircase extends along the floor and it is the measurement from the front face of the lowest riser to the front face of the topmost riser.

Newel Post - A newel is a strong structural baluster or post that is used to secure the handrail to the floor or to the rest of the staircase framework. Newel posts are positioned at the top and bottom of stairways and at places where the stairs change direction.

Baluster - The spindles or balusters are the vertical posts that connect the baserail to the handrail and fill up the space in between, balusters move the load from the handrail to the primary structure of the staircase as well as restrict the openings between. In the United Kingdom, Document K1 of the building regulations specifies that a sphere 100mm across should not be able to pass between 2 spindles, to make sure that children cannot go through the gap.

Balustrade - A balustrade is what we call the whole assembled handrail system that encloses and separates sections of the staircase and stops users falling. The balustrade might be on either or both sides of a staircase and can combine baserails, handrails, spindles or balusters, panels, caps, newels and various other ornate elements.

Spiral Staircase Fitters Taunton SomersetMore Stair Terms and Parts - Rake: The rake is the pitch of the stairway measured as the ratio between the going and the rise, Finial or Newel Cap: The newel cap or finial is a ornamental component fitted on the top of a newel post, Nosing: Nosings are the parts of steps that jut out beyond the front face of the risers beneath them, Winder: A winder is a step that's broader at one side than the other, that enables the staircase to change direction without the need for a landing.

Spiral Staircases Taunton Somerset - What is a Spiral Staircase?: A spiral staircase is a stair which twirls round a central support or column running from floor to ceiling, with a railing on one side and with all the treads or steps connected to the column on the other side. A spiral staircase can be a very beautiful feature for your house, and also occupy a lot less space than a regular staircase would, they are well suited for gaps that would not be big enough for a standard staircase. However, on the down side,, spiral staircases are not so easy to go up and down and can be particularly challenging for the disabled and elderly, they are equally pretty useless in the event you need to take furniture or items of any size, up or down the stairs. Therefore, you should consider carefully before getting one installed, especially if you are intending to sell your home any time soon. Spiral staircases can be used both indoors and outdoors and are typically crafted from wood or metal, or possibly a mixture of both, spiral staircases are particularly good for gaining access to areas like lofts and roof terraces or in conditions where there is limited space.

Using the Search Engines: In these modern times one of the most popular ways to track down a staircase fitter in Taunton is by using Google.
