Plan The Whole Process

Planning is necessary if you want to do a renovation of your old staircase. Start the process by deciding if you want to change just the newel posts, handrails and spindles or if you want to refurbish your steps and risers also. Then, you need to select a design and place an order of your new stair parts.

Replace The Steps and Risers

Begin your renovation project of staircase from the replacement of steps and risers. If you have a carpet on the stairs, then just remove it. After that, cut your steps and risers to size and test-fit them.

Note :

Install the first and the second riser first; install the first step after. Continue the process of installing the next risers and cover any gap with mouldings.

Renovate The Landing Area

Some staircases have a particular landing area. If it is same with your staircase, just use winder steps and their extensions for the renovation purposes. Calculate the number that you will require by measuring the landing from the back to the front. Just like you have done previously, measure, cut and test-fit these parts and then install them. Start the process with the front portion of the landing and use a winder step to cover it. In fact, you can hide the margins with mouldings.

Replace Newel Posts

If you have not replaced newel posts already, just remove the old handrails, base rails and spindles from the existing staircase. Then, you will need to cut the existing newel posts. When doing this, keep in mind that there is a minimum height requirement, that is 90mm height from the pitch line up the post.

Continue installing the newel posts. If the posts have a dowel, just bore a hole in the centre of the remaining newel base. After this, use glue and secure them by fixing a screw through the dowel and the base. To hide the gap between the newel base and the post, you can add a newel base connector.

Install The Handrails and Base Rails

Another best aspect of renovating your old staircase is that you can choose between having a staircase with spindles or having a glass staircase. However, both of these solutions are available; depending upon your choice you will need to order specific handrails and base rails.

After placing orders of these stair parts, you will need to do two cuts- first cut to angle of your stairs and a second one to length. You can start installing them, starting with the base rails. Always make sure that they fit correctly and to center them. Otherwise, it will be quite difficult when installing glass panels or spindles.

Second, cut the first spindle at the angle of your stairs and then install it. Do not forget to leave spaces between the spindles and cover these with fillets (You should have received all these when ordering your handrail).
