Stairs and Rails Foxchase Northeast Philadelphia
Custom Stairs and Rails in Foxchase neighborhood of Northeast Philadelphia. Maybe the ugliest "BEFORE" stair and rail pictures ever. An apartment building on Rhawn Street had a fire last year, and suffered extensive damage. While they were re-habbing the building, they decided to re-do the stairs and rails like they'd been wanting to do for years, even though this staircase was unaffected by the fire, and they weren't required to replace it. But they're sure glad they did. What a difference. So much safer for the residents, and visitors, and children living there. And so much easier on the eyes. The architect drew up plans, I submitted them downtown and got the permit, the framers came in and re-framed all the well openings, the drywallers immediately followed them, and we delivered the 3 staircases the next day. I had 7 guys helping me that day, we had plenty of muscle, which you surely need with solid oak commercial size stairs. I then strung all the posts, rail, and balusters, and the painters came in right behind us and painted and stained everything. Carpet arrived a few days later, and the residents have their building back, much better than it was new, back in the sixties.
If you're concerned with your apartment complexes' stair and rail issues, or even with your personal home, be sure to call/text, or email Ron in Foxchase for all your Custom Stair and Rail needs.
