Staircase building is one of the most technically challenging elements of carpentry. Accuracy is an important facet of staircase building, both from the point of view of functional usability, safety, and aesthetics. Even if you plan on covering your stairs with carpet, quality construction materials matter.
You will need to be familiar with staircase terminology so you can sketch a blueprint and order the staircase parts you need. Important terms for stair building include treads, risers, stringers, landing, skirt trim, wall rail, handrail, handrail bracket, post or newel, baluster or spindle, nosing, and molding. How these parts are ultimately arranged together will give each stairway its unique character.
