Stairs Installation: What to Expect Before and During the Process?

21 November 2022

Seeing your thoughts and concepts come to life while renovating your home and updating your decor can be amazing. However, remodelling can come with many unknowns if you’re a beginner. We at Planet Stairs are aware that many of our clients have never had to instal or replace a staircase. So, how does it work? What is actually at stake? Here is a helpful guide from us.

How Long Does It Usually Take to Install the Stairs?

Normally, it takes three to four weeks to install after an order has been confirmed. Measurements, designs, fabrication, shipping, and, of course, the most thrilling step, installation, are all part of this process. Please anticipate up to six to eight weeks if you opt for a more intricate design (think spiral staircases or geometric).

Do I Need to Design the Stairs from Scratch?

You can design your stairs from scratch. However, we advise scheduling a meeting with a stair manufacturer and installation. In this method, they may create a staircase that will live up to your expectations, if not beyond them. Your home’s appearance and particular preferences can be accommodated by several solutions that trained professionals can offer you. We at Planet Stairs can handle the full process for you.

How Should I Prepare for the Coming of My Stairs?

Is a new staircase being installed? If the old stairs have carpeting, you can complete the project more quickly by removing the carpet yourself. All you have to do is immediately rip up the carpet corner and any padding underneath it. The team can concentrate on the staircase’s construction and dismantling if this section is completed before installation. Additionally, you should make the space around the stairs free by removing any furniture, artwork, souvenirs, and other things.

Is There Anything I Need to Be Aware of During Construction?

Be ready for some mess, especially dust, throughout the construction and demolition phase. Sadly, there isn’t much you can do to prevent dust. We advise covering furniture whenever feasible, opening windows to get fresh air into your home, and donning face masks while you are close to the work zone. And to make sure all the dust is gone, we advise our clients to do a thorough clean after installation, perhaps even hiring expert cleaners.

Can I Access the Second Floor While the Staircase Is Being Installed?

Although the staircase installer will work hard to finish the job as soon as possible, it’s smart to consider that you won’t be able to access the second floor during the entire installation process. If your home doesn’t have another staircase to access the upstairs, it’s advisable to declutter and remove anything that isn’t necessary.
