Stair Parts - Stair Balusters - Staircase Design - Stair Warehouse is your online stair part store, featuring a wide variety of quality wrought iron spindles, hardwood and oak, spiral and curved railing, metal and wooden circular handrails, custom staircase design and LJ Smith stair parts at low prices.
We have installed thousands of stair rails over the last 30 years of business. From simple boxed stair rail systems, up to intricate curved & flaired open tread stairways.
95% of the stair rails in the United States use the 6010 style rail in oak and the 5015 style baluster. There is an almost unlimited selection of railparts to choose from to truly customize your home.
At the top of this page I have included links to several different stair parts manufacturers catalogs for your perusal. Also I have links to their respective websites for even further study. You can take a look at our photo album of stairways for just a very small sample of a few balustrades we have completed. A lot of the pictures show the railwork right after the installation, before any staining or finishing has been done.
A popular trend today is replacing your old carpeted pine stair treads with oak treads. See one example of a recent job we completed here Even replacing an old set of boxed stairs for an open tread design with even a possible bullnose starting step. With a bullnose starting step you can use a full volute on your handrail. There are many options for updating your bannisters, staircases & handrails.
We have had several homeowners renovate and update their old stair railings because of safety issues. On a lot of older rails the balusters are spaced too far apart and present a falling hazard for children. The current stair codes require no more than a four (4") space anywhere on the balustrade. You can check out more stair codes here.
Whatever your reasons for wanting to renovate your existing stairs and or railings, and you live in the Northern Virginia area, please contact us today for a free, no pressure, no obligation, in home consultation & proposal.
