Stairs are an essential part of most homes and are also generally the most dangerous place of a home. If you live in a home that has stairs it is important to always pay attention when climbing the stairs It is also important to teach any children that use the stairs to be careful and not use them as a play toy. If you are at all unsteady on the stairs as might be the case of those effected by injury or illness, a stair lifting aid, like a stair lift, might be a good option.
Building stairs is one of the most challenging, time consuming building projects for most builders. Not all stair construction methods are equal. Some are much more user friendly and cost effective than others. Of course, in this economy, you need to save every penny on your deck stairs, basement stairs, or interior stairs. It’s interesting that many people with minimal experience are willing to tackle a simple deck project for the first time, but hit a brick wall when it comes to building stairs. It just seems complicated and out of reach for people with little or no experience. The good news is "you can build that stair".
Consider Installing it Yourself: This actually applies to both new and used stair lifts. Most stair lifts that are made for a straight staircase can be installed fairly quickly and using only normal household tools. Talk with the dealer about the installation process and look at the installation instructions. If it seems like something you feel comfortable doing, you can save money by doing the installation yourself. If you don’t feel comfortable though, don’t do it and instead have the dealer arrange the installation.
Another way to avoid injuries when using stairs is to have a regular maintenance check-up. This only means that the stairs and its parts should be routinely checked to see if anything is missing, broken, and in need of repair. Poor maintenance of stairs can lead to all kinds of stair injuries. A missing baluster could be a potential danger for small children using the stairs, they could easily fall through the space where the missing baluster is located. A wobbly hand rail could spell disaster for those who hugely rely on them for balance and support, especially for the elderly, handicapped, and even small children. A loose stair tread is a major site for trips and mishaps. Anything found to be in need of repair should be fixed immediately. Anything beyond repair should be replaced and dealt with as soon as you can. All of these may seem tedious work, but will be well worth it. Always remember that having your stair injuries treated is more expensive than replacing or fixing your broken stairs.
