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.
