New Stair and Rail in MT Laurel NJ








New Stair and Rail in Mt Laurel NJ. All-new Maple Treads, Posts and Handrail. Painted risers and Balusters. The wall under the main stair was opened up so there could be a handrail in the hallway, and make the basement more inviting, and less hidden from the rest of the house. The basement rails were replaced as well to match what was done on first and second floors. Homeowner wanted his stairway to be a little more grand. Maybe to match the baby grand in the living room he loved to play. I pulled out all the old handrail, balusters, treads and risers, and replaced them in place. Sometimes I pull entire staircase out of the house if it's in really bad shape. The stringers weren't bad, and there are lots of moldings surrounding the stair, as you can see. So, I left the stringers, and horses in place and did everything on-site. If your daughters' going to be getting married soon, or in the next 20 years, be sure your staircase is a little more grand. But why wait for the wedding, get started now, and let her enjoy the new stair for a little while. She'll thank you for it later when she shows you the beautiful wedding photos of her standing on your New Stair and Rail in Mt Laurel NJ.

Iron Balusters Garnet Valley PA







Iron Balusters in Garnet Valley PA. I removed the old contemporary "deck style" railing, and replaced it with this new system. This is over the post style, which is much easier on your hand while walking up and down your stair. It's also easier on the eye; it "flows", unlike the old deck style rail. I used twisted oak posts and twisted iron balusters to match, and some "S" accent balusters to set it off. If your builder messed up and put your deck rail on the inside of your house, give me a call. Let me help you make a great first impression as your friends, family, and visitors walk into your home. You can choose wood or Iron Balusters to go with your new rail in Garnet Valley PA.

New Box Newels and Handrail in Turnersville NJ




New Box Newels and Handrail in Turnersville NJ. Split level home needed an upgrade. Really nice people. All my customers are really nice people, but some are even more so. Like most of my jobs, I did most of this while they were working. Took the better part of three days to complete. I installed the nosing and capping, then the box newels, then the handrail. I left for a few days while homeowner painted and stained everything. I then came back and installed the balusters and fillet, (the very small pieces of square stock that "fills in" the gap between the square top balusters.) They had a little one on the way and needed a really safe really beautiful handrail. The dark stain on the handrail contrasts nicely with the lighter oak stair treads. The square balusters are in keeping with the vertical lines in the panels on the walls. Painting the box newels, again is in keeping with what's been done with the wall panels. If you're tired of your split-level rail, or stair, or, if you have a little one on the way, or you want to protect the little ones you have already, or you have some older folks coming over to visit your little ones, and want to give them something sturdy and beautiful to hang onto as they go up and down your stair,  call, or text Ron to schedule your no-cost consultation, at 215-694-5046. Or email him at ronstairs@verizon.net. Whether you're in Turnersville NJ or surrounding areas, whether you're in need of Box Newels, or standard newel posts, whether you need new Handrail or an entire new Staircase don't hesitate to call.

Thanks for looking,
