We go up and down them all day long, our kids like to play on them them or get sent there to the "naughty step" when they misbehave, and we might sit on them ourselves while talking on the phone. However, in regards to home improvements, we generally just give the stairs a dab of paint and then get started on the bathroom, the kitchen or the sitting room, in terms of larger refurbishments. The fact remains, it is possible to dramatically improve the overall look of your house by replacing or upgrading your staircase, you could get more light into your home, you may be able to increase the storage or you could create more space. So as to obtain guidance on what exactly you can and cannot put in your house layout, you'll first of all need to locate a qualified staircase fitter in Westfield.

Staircase Fitter Westfield SomersetBeing as there is such a wide range of types of staircase out there, it can be a challenge for you to figure out which of them is perfect for you or your situation. Some of the numerous staircase layouts out there are: single winder staircases, spiral staircases, cantilevered staircases, L shaped staircases, quarter turn staircases, circular staircases, freestanding staircases, half turn staircases, helical staircases, floating staircases, curved staircases, straight staircases and others. Once more, seeking tips and advice from a local Westfield staircase installation specialist or perhaps an architect is very important.

Complicating things even more, stairs can be crafted from a number of different materials such as: marble, hardwood, stone, metal, glass, granite, concrete and softwood, plus combinations of those materials, a common example being stainless steel and glass staircases. And these materials will come in many varieties and finishes. For example hardwood staircases can be made out of ash, iroko, walnut, oak, maple, teak, beech or sapele, softwood staircases could be crafted from southern yellow pine, piranha pine, hemlock, Scandinavian pine, Douglas fir or redwood (pine) and steel staircases could have a galvanized, powder coated, brushed steel, shiney or matt finish.

Regulations Covering Stairs: If you're working with a professional Westfield staircase fitter, you should be able to count on them to ensure your staircase follows all the applicable building and safety regulations. Nevertheless, it may still be of interest to you that all stairs and staircases, both public and domestic (private) are covered by quite strict safety regulations and that curiously they are a little different in Scotland (see here: Scottish Staircase Regulation Documents) to those for England, N Ireland and Wales (see here: K1 - Building Regulations and here: M1 and M2 Regulations - Access and Use). The UK K1 Document applies to stairways, ramps and ladders, whilst the M1 and M2 regulations relate to the use and access of buildings. The regulations for Scotland for stairs contain just three or four differences regarding the height measurements of handrails and the "rise" and "going" of certain stairs.

Westfield Staircase Fitters SomersetUpgrading or Restoring Your Current Staircase: By rejuvenating or modifying your existing staircase, it is easy to make substantial changes to the overall appearance of your home without spending a fortune. There are various ways to do this and the possibilities are only limited by by your creativity and imagination, but for starters you could perhaps remove the carpets and strip back a painted staircase to uncover its attractive wood finish, you might be able to use some offcuts of wallpaper on the risers of your staircase to add an amazing new effect, you might be able to change the handrails and balusters to give the whole thing a totally different appearance, you could turn a staircase around so it runs in a different direction and you could maybe switch plywood panelling for glass to bring in more light. This type of project can be very interesting and maybe you can do some of the work yourself, thus giving you an even greater sense of achievement.

Bespoke Staircases in Westfield: While there are companies that make all kinds of staircases manufactured as "off the shelf" solutions and also in "kit" form, without any doubt the best way to get an effective and properly fitting one is to get a bespoke staircase manufactured specifically for the layout of your home. You might ask "what exactly does bespoke mean?", well, that's a fair question, and definition given in the dictionary for "bespoke" is actually "made to order", which identifies this process accurately and simply. If you decide to have a bespoke staircase manufactured for your property you'll need to contact a specialist Westfield staircase fitter and maybe a local Westfield surveyor or architect as well, these experts will visit your house and survey and measure your staircase location and advise you of the optimal design and materials for the specific layout of your property. Once they have all the measurements and data they will generally go back to the factory and get a CAD drawing (computer aided drafting) made up of the staircase, combined with a calculation of the cost in accordance with your choice of design, materials and finish, in fact they will likely give you 2 or 3 quotations based upon constructing the staircase in a choice of materials if you are so far undecided on that issue. You ought to make sure that you get a total price for all of the fabrication, installation and finishing costs, combined with the costs for taking down and disposing of your existing staircase, so that you know in advance exactly how much the entire project will cost.

Glossary of Staircase Terms

Baluster or Spindle - The spindles or balusters are the vertical posts which fill the gap between the baserail and the handrail, they restrict the size of the openings and pass the load on the handrail to the main structure of the staircase. In the UK, building regulations stipulates that a sphere 100mm across must be unable to pass between 2 spindles, guaranteeing that children cannot go through the gap.

Staircase Installation Westfield SomersetBalustrade - A balustrade is the whole assembly of handrail components that encloses and separates individual areas of the staircase and stops people falling off the edge. The balustrade may be fitted on one or on both sides of a stairway and can combine newel posts, panels, spindles or balusters, handrails, baserails, caps and possibly other ornamental elements.

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 corresponds to the distance your feet travel onwards with each step up or down. In the United Kingdom the minimum permitted "going" is 220mm for private buildings. The going of the entire staircase is the total length that the staircase runs across the floor which is determined by the measurement from the front face of the lowest riser to the front face of the uppermost riser.

Newel - A newel post is a robust structural baluster or post which is used to secure the handrail to the floor or to the rest of the staircase. Newel posts are positioned at the bottom and top of stairways and anywhere the stairs change direction.

Riser - The vertical section in between two treads. This can be open or closed. A tread and a riser collectively form one step.

String, Stringer or Stringer Board - The stringer board is the sloping section to which the treads and risers are fastened which basically transfer the loads of the stair onto the framework. A staircase will usually have two stringer boards, one at each side of the steps, a broader staircase may sometimes have a third stringer board placed in the middle to add strength. Stairway stringer boards could be cut or closed, cut or open stringer boards will have the upper edges cut and shaped to match the shape of the risers and treads and reveal their profile when looking from the side.

Tread - A tread is the flat part of a stair step which a person walks on when going up or descending the stairs, it is about the as thick as a floorboard. A riser and a tread fitted together form one step.

Spiral Staircase Fitters Westfield SomersetSome More Staircase Terms - Finial or Newel Cap: Finials or newel caps are the decorative elements which are stuck on the tops of newel posts, Rake: The rake is the pitch or gradient of the stairway measured as the ratio between the going and the rise, Nosing: Nosings are the leading edges of treads that jut out beyond the face of the risers under them, Winder: A winder is a step that is deeper at one end than the other, that enables the staircase to change direction by 90 or 180 degrees without using a landing.

Spiral Staircases Westfield Somerset - What is a Spiral Staircase?: A spiral staircase is a stair which rotates round a central newel post, pole or column running from ceiling to floor, with a handrail on one side and with the steps joined to the column on the other. A spiral staircase would be a very desirable design element for your home, and at the same time occupy a lot less space than a conventional staircase, they are able to be tucked into spaces that would not be big enough for standard designs of staircase. However, on the down side,, spiral staircases are more difficult to go up and down and will likely be quite challenging for the disabled and older people, they're likewise pretty hopeless when you have to transport articles of furniture, up or down them. Therefore you need to think carefully before getting one installed, particularly if you're planning on selling the home any time soon. Spiral staircases can be installed indoors and outdoors and are generally made of wood or metal, or perhaps a mix of both, they are particularly good for accessing places like lofts and roof terraces or in conditions where there is limited space.

A good way to locate a suitable Westfield staircase fitter to hire is by checking out reviews by past customers, you may be able to locate reviews on the web, most likely on one of the many trade websites like Checkatrade, My Hammer, Rated People, TrustaTrader, My Builder or perhaps even on a Westfield staircase fitter's business website if he/she offers one. Yet another useful strategy is to ask family, close friends, work colleagues or perhaps even next door neighbours to advocate a Westfield staircase fitter that they've recently used, people often claim that "by word of mouth" is the best sort of endorsement and in this instance it should certainly be a great help for you in making a well informed decision and acquire somebody you can rely on and who has previously done a good job.

Searching for a Staircase Fitters on the Internet: In modern times one of the more popular ways to search for a staircase fitter in Westfield is by "Googling" it.
