Most of the time, homeowners are stuck with the standard basement stairs that the construction company built in their home. They may look dull, but they get the job done — allowing access to the basement. But are you okay with them?

There are tons of options for customizing your basement stairs. You may choose to add more utility by letting us install drawers in the steps or sides for storage. Alternatively, you may want to change its drab style to something more visually appealing. Or you just want to widen and strengthen them to withstand consistent foot traffic. Whatever your reason, we here at Utah Stair Company can help you renovate, upgrade, or replace your basement stairs.

We are sure that taking the DIY approach to deal with your basement stairs has already crossed your mind. If you are currently weighing your options between going for DIY or handing this project off to professionals, make sure to remember that this is not a simple task that you can work on without careful planning. Here are some of the things that you need to consider when it comes to remodeling your basement stairs:

  • Building codes: Be sure that your basement stairs will follow your local building codes and regulations. Trust us; it is for your safety.
  • Moisture: Make sure that the materials you will use for your stairs are protected against moisture.
  • Space: Unlike regular stairs, basement stairs are often installed in tight-fit locations. If you want to adjust your stair’s size, look forward to a major renovation project.
  • Style: The more complicated the style and design, the more work it will take for you to finish it. Know that renovating your stairs by yourself will take some time and restrict you and your family’s access to your basement.

With us, you do not need to tire and inconvenience yourself by tackling your stairs renovation project alone. If you want to hear our expert opinion and discuss how we can help you, feel free to contact us anytime.
