Prefabricated stairs are available locally and their use can easily equate into a savings of 30 - 40 percent. Whether you're building track, duplex, multi - family, or custom homes a design or style is available to fit your needs. One of the more complex and expensive carpentry tasks faced by all builders is the stair building process.
Just to construct a straight set of wooden stairs with no finish stringer and carpeted stair treads requires over 275 circular saw cuts. For a carpenter to figure out the rise, run, layout, cut the stringers, risers, treads, and install the components can easily take 4 hours.
No matter what type of stairs are to be built they should be installed as early in the building process as possible.The earlier they are built the sooner the framing crew and all the other tradesman that come after can make use of them.
If it is not feasible to get the permanent staircase installed in a timely manner, portable stairs should be installed.
This will make the work crews more efficient and safer.
No matter what your project you can increase production and lower costs thru the use of ready made stairs.
