Does your home have an older staircase that needs an upgrade? Believe it or not many homeowners ignore this important fixture when selecting a home. They may end up with dysfunctional stairs, worn wooden staircase railings and wrought iron, or even old carpeted steps. The truth is that you need your stairs to be elegant, safe, and functional.
The Ugly Carpeted Stairs Dilemma
Maybe your home has carpeted stairs or you are considering carpeting your stairs. You need to think about a few factors before deciding. Not all stairs benefit from carpeting. For example, simple unattractive staircases or very noisy staircases benefit from carpeting. Why? Despite the beautiful wooden staircase railings and wrought iron, some staircases cannot be painted. Some hardwood stairs can be destroyed by nailing in carpeting. You need to consider this before carpeting your stairs.
If you have any staircases in your home that are dangerous, you need to contact our incredible team at Stair Star today. Don’t wait until an accident occurs.
