Stairs are one of the most neglected aspects of a home during renovation projects. Most people just cover them up and polish the wood elements of the structure. Stairs are an important aspect of the architecture and it is always a good idea to consider them in the renovation plans. At Lavergne Home Improvement and Renovations in Ottawa, we can install new stairs and renovate old one so they’re as good as new.
Stair Home Improvements in Ottawa
Stairs tend to dominate the space they’re in so it is important to keep them in good shape. They can add architectural beauty and grandeur to any home if designed correctly. Our team has worked on several stair design and installation projects over the years and knows how to make them complement your home’s overall design. Here’s a look at what we can do:
- Make the Stairs Modern – Many homes come with great stairs but they look dated compared to the overall design of the property. We can change the polish, remove old, flaking paint, or replace the banisters and railings with something more modern. This ensures your stairs looks beautiful and current.
- Reinforcing the Structure – Wear and tear does take its toll on the stairs, which is why it is important to reinforce the structure to ensure it remains safe for use. We can ensure each individual tread is secure, the railings and balustrades are in good condition, and there are no vulnerabilities.
- Lighting – We can add LED lights to every step. These lights are subtle, add to the beauty of the staircase, but also help improve the safety aspect of the feature. Lighting can make the stairs look modern and help them stand out.
- Different Materials – We can replace poor quality stair materials with good quality ones to ensure the structure is durable. For example, if you have laminate steps and want something of better quality, we can replace them with hardwood steps. We can also add glass and metal to the railings for additional support and security.
