Installing Staircase Railings

Staircase RailingsIf you’re planning to install staircase railings, you need to proceed with every step carefully. The first thing which you need to do is cut out the treads. The sizes will vary depending upon the various kinds of fixtures you have, so take the measurements carefully and cut the threads accordingly. Then comes the installation part where you would have to make sure that the wood fillers are covered nicely and the screws are put in tightly. Get some wood putty of the same color of the wood and fill in the screw holes to give it a smooth finish.

After all this is done, you need to install the hardwood landing. Make sure that the size and cut are perfect for the area. After that, you have to install the various half newel posts and the main newel posts. Many people prefer using just one newel post at the bottom or starting of the stairs.
