Custom Staircases

Challenges are our favorite

I am frequently asked the question “What is your favorite type of project to do?”. I find this question difficult to answer, because I do not dislike any project. However, as much as I enjoy all aspects of design-build remodeling (framing, roofing, siding & boxing, drywall, door installation, window installation, flooring, tile, interior trim, cabinet making, kitchens, baths and decks), there is one project that I love doing the most and it’s building custom staircases. 

The main reason why I love building staircases is that they can be challenging, and they incorporate a lot of the skill sets that a good carpenter develops with years of experience. 

A staircase, just like kitchen cabinets, are a statement piece about the project’s quality, and attention to detail is highlighted.  Arguably, staircase construction is one the most important projects to be constructed correctly to avoid accidents or death. It’s important to consider these statistics from the National Safety Council. Over 1 Million injuries occur each year as the result of stairway falls. Staircase and stairway accidents constitute the second leading cause of accidental injury, second only to motor vehicle accidents. Each year, there are 12,000 stairway accident deaths. 

American Building & Design, LLC is a family owned, NH-MA based remodeling, renovation, and cabinetmaker contractor, established in 1996. A typical project for us ranges from renovating historic homes, customizing kitchens, building additions, custom decks, building and customizing staircases, and renovating bathrooms.

The Remodeling Contractor

What does remodeling really mean

The residential building industry has many synonyms which essentially equate to the same definition; however, depending on the individual, we favor a term in our vocabulary to describe the residential building industry’s task.
Through the years, I’ve had the same statement posed to me many times, “We knew that you built additions, but we were not sure if you also staircase, decks, installed windows, roofing, installed siding, constructed barns, installed hardwood flooring, installed drywall & finished drywall, remodeled kitchens, finished attics, build custom cabinets, remodeled bathrooms, finished basements, framed homes, installed interior trim, and designed projects. My general response to this question is that I am a Remodeling – Renovation – General Contractor, because we will either renovate or remodel a space, while at the same time General Contract the project.
Overall, this industry translates from one task to another, however many companies focus on a single task; like an electrician does with electrical. However, American Building & Design’s, LLC specialty is to do as many tasks associated with a project to maintain a higher degree of product and maintain a constant speed to the project. Also, the owner; George Trojan is on the project doing the work with his crew. This also maintains a level of professionalism and allows the homeowner an ability to communicate with the contractor. This simple equation has resulted in our surviving over two decades and earning a level of respect. Please consider our service in the future.
