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.
Compare Prices: Compare the price of a new stair lift and a used stair lift. If you purchase a rebuilt or refurbished stair lift, then likely the only difference will be the warranty and the price. Most new stair lifts are covered by very extensive warranties, but used stair lifts might only have a 6 months warranty. If the price difference is not too great, then it might be a good idea to pay a little extra to get the full 5 or 10 year warranty that most stair lifts come with. Make certain you contact the dealer if the length of the warranty of the used stair lift is not listed.
The Acorn Stair Lift: Acorn makes only straight stair lifts. Currently you can buy the Acorn Superglide stair lift. This home stair lift uses a modern rack and pinion drive system and is powered by DC 24 volt rechargeable batteries. The home stair lift also comes with two wireless remote controls with send/call features. You get safety sensors on both the footrest and carriage that will immediately stop the chair should any obstacle be encountered on the stairs or track. What sets Acorn apart is that they make a perch stair lift, which is ideal for those who have trouble bending the knees or for staircases that are narrower than normal.
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".
