Should I Be Concerned About My Staircase?
In large structures such as two-story homes, apartments, condominiums, commercial buildings, and hotels, it’s common to have multiple floors. Multiple floor levels mean that there are several flights of stairs. While most people prefer taking elevators (especially if they need to reach higher level floors), staircases are just as important to maintain as other materials within a large building.
Damaged staircases can quickly become a safety hazard or liability to you, your family, tenants, employees, or guests if not taken care of immediately. But unless you're a professional structural engineer, it will be difficult to tell whether or not a stair repair is needed.
So, how can you tell if you should be concerned about your staircase?
Signs That You Need A Stair Repair
Whether your stairs are wooden, cement, carpet, metal, or winding, there are several significant signs that a staircase may require repair. Over time, it’s common for staircase materials to contract and expand. In turn, this can lead to cracks, creaking, and an unstable handrail. These can be caused by several factors:
- Post hardware becoming loose (leading to wobbly railings)
- Components not having enough structural support
- Moisture entering into wood
- Cracked treads or risers
Depending on the exact problem, a stair repair can vary from minor to complex. That's why it's essential to hire a professional engineer to handle any stair maintenance that is needed for your building.
