What questions should I ask my stair builder agreeing to hire them to build my stair?

Building a stair can be a daunting task.  The stair builder is the expert and has a great deal of information to share with you.  What are some questions you can ask to help you understand the process better?


1.  Does my quote include stairs and railings?  Often quotes will be made separately for a stair and for the railings portion of the job.  If the quote doesn’t mention railings, installation, staining, etc., then it isn’t included.

2. How long will it take for my stair to be made?  Stairs can take anywhere from 1 week to 6 weeks, depending on the type and complexity of the stair.

3.  Do I need to tell you before or after my stair is built that I want it to match the flooring or wall color in my home?  Each wood that is used in a stair will stain differently so sharing with the stair builder that you need it to match a color specifically in your home is very important.  This may determine the type of wood used for the stair construction.

What People Are Saying

After looking at various stair builders in the lower mainland, I decided to go with Plytech Stairs. I was glad I did as they helped me figure out what stair would work best in my home. I was unsure of all the details but they helped walk me through the process and work with me at each phase of the job. I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone looking to work with a talented and professional team.
