Cutting Tips for the Stair Builder

Building stairs can be expensive work. The cost of the materials alone will cost you a reasonable amount of money. Add this amount with all the professional and labor fees and other miscellaneous expenses will surely make anyone think about making a run for their money. All that kidding aside, any mistake or error, especially when it comes to the cutting phase will mean more money space. Here are some cutting tips for the stair builder.

During the cutting phase, this is where everything becomes unbelievably technical. Accuracy is the key to successful pass this phase of stair building. A good rule of thumb to follow for a stair builder is to measure twice and cut once, which simply means being careful with measurements and taking the utmost care when cutting.

A wide area where you can freely move around is an ideal workplace. You should make sure that you give yourself enough room to have the other materials on stand by while you build, especially if you're doing DIY work. It's like setting up a stage.

Lighting is another important thing or else risk losing a limb. Any staircase or home building project will only be efficient and can get as close to perfect as it should if the lighting is good. Having great lighting will also help for a better brain processing (studies prove it!) And avoid having little accidents like stepping on a small nail or cutting the wrong wood plank.

Ventilation is also important because this can be very tedious and exhausting work. Imagine doing the same thing, tread after tread, post after post for the balustrade. Make sure that you will not be suffocated by dust and that you do not drown in sweat after a few minutes. Take little breathers in between too.

Before Mr. stair builder nails or glues anything together, let him do a double check first. Measure the stair treads to see if they are all of the same size. Check the stair baluster to see is they are of the identical height. The point is to make sure everything will fit snuggly after installation. Lastly, ensuring the quality of your stair parts is the last consideration, which is easy if you know where to look.
