How to Replace an Existing Staircase

Construction, Stairs,Replacing an old staircase is not for safety only but also aesthetic purposes. It brings a fresh look into the house. The whole process is time consuming and should not be done without professional help. It may also be a bit expensive.

First disassemble the handrail and remove old treads. Make sure you remove all the nails from their stair jacks. In most cases it is only treads that need replacing since they are the once exposed to water and weight. They should be used as templates in making cuttings for the new treads. These once cut should be nailed in with finish nails if the case will have stained finish or carpeting nails if it will have carpet finish.

If creating space is the main reason for replacing a staircase, its best disassemble the whole case and replace it with a spiral one.
