Curved or Straight: Our Custom Exterior Stairs Design Process

Black and White exterior stairs

Custom designs are so important to general contractors, home builders, and architects looking for unique interior or exterior stairs for their client’s space. The word “custom” is used to define a superior product, made-to-order and tailored to a customer’s exact specifications. Custom stairs serve as much more than a functional element of a home. They’re a work of art, a conversation piece. Like a unique piece of furniture, a staircase sets the style of a residence.


Custom Outdoor and Indoor Stairs Design Process

  1. Start with the architectural plans.

Given the layout of the space, what types of stairs should be considered? Should a winding spiral be designed to maximize space? Would a flared stair add luxury and grandeur to the open foyer? Will custom straight steel stair treads and handrails take the residential deck design to a new level? In this phase, our design team works with you regarding design options and code requirements that are best suited to enhance your space.

  1. Follow with inspiration.

Next, we build the inspiration for your interior or exterior stairs. We consider what unique style we aim to capture in your project. Whether you have a specific concept in mind or want to explore ideas with our creative design team, we work to bring your vision to life.

  1. View diverse product offerings.

Our team takes an innovative and creative approach to custom staircase design. Several of our product offerings include:

  • Stair stringers in dual, mono, or c-channel stringer designs constructed of wood or steel
