If perhaps so, then have you seriously considered using metal stairways rather than wood?

Many modern and modern homes these days start to use metal stairs as opposed to solid wood. Metal stairs have 3 main benefits to the homeowner:


Metal stairs is much more superior than solid wood staircases! Most staircases created from wood use a douglas fir 2×10 sidewall or stringer that is notched and the true durability is somewhat more like a 2×6 sitting vertically. This more than enough for most homes but compared to metal it is substandard. A metal staircase may easily support the weight of the whole home! You can literally drive a fladskærm pick up over them and they won’t move. This makes them feel strong and safe because they are.

In terms of wooden staircases noise is an issue particularly when you are now living in a dry climate. Wooden contract and expands during different seasons and weather. In the winter time they shrink from the low humidity plus they make a lot of noises when you walk on them. Just getting a glass of milk at midnight can wake up other people. This is unavoidable with wood steps because the use shims and wedges to secure the stair treads that expand and contract. In the summer time they can be quite but are extremely creaky throughout the winter. Metal stairs one the other side of the coin hand are welded solid and make almost no noise.

Metal stairways are extremely versatile and can come in a variety of finishes and highlight materials including wood steps and handrail caps.

This creates a beautiful modern modern look that can be custom centered on any home style. They not only look great their strength is better than wood staircases.

When a staircase uses metal as the helping structure it also allows the designer or property owner to choose any highlight or blend of features they might want. For example a home can use wood stair treads and then adding a pebble handrail cap for a highly customised look and feel which is not only stunning but highly functional.

The biggest disadvantage to adding metal steps to you home is cost! They are more suited for high conclusion homes who have an ample budget. Pricing may easily be 4x the amount of a low finish real wood staircase.
