How We Create Our Custom Staircase: Part 2

When designing and constructing a unique, custom staircase, our team at Southern Staircase follows a turnkey approach to ensure all stairs are built to the highest quality and safety standards. When a client comes to us looking for a brand-new custom staircase, they work collaboratively with our design team to identify the exact style and components they envision for their custom staircase. Once the design has been perfected and the client is happy with the results, it’s time to bring the project to life.

In “How We Create Our Custom Staircase: Part 1”, we take a look at how we work with our clients on the design and inspiration process for creating their custom staircase. Now, we’ll take a look at how we bring this vision to life.

Creating a Custom Staircase Drawing

Our team is proud of our successful history in bringing innovative custom staircase designs to life. To ensure a flawless installation and a perfect fit, our experts measure the space for the exact stair placement. The team then provides each client with CAD drawings which include complete stair details, so they’ll know exactly what to expect and have the excitement of seeing their custom staircase one step closer to becoming a reality.

Once the client approves all drawings, the construction process will move forward.

Leveraging experience and strong expertise in building codes and regulations, our team will deliver a custom staircase that is not only aesthetically pleasing but safe and durable as well.
