Why Choose iStairs as Your Professional Stair Contractor

iStairs Stair Parts

If you want to install or remodel your staircase, you have two options: you can hire a general carpenter or work with a professional stair contractor who provides additional advantages because of his niche skills. 

However, not all stair contractors are created equal. When looking for a professional builder, the general rule of thumb is to choose someone with insurance and licenses, an extensive portfolio of past projects, and a roster of happy clients. 

At iStairs, our quality craftsmanship has made us one of the leading one-stop-shop staircase builders in Northern California.

Here, we compiled a list of reasons why our clients hire us to design, install, and remodel their staircases. 

We offer quality craftsmanship.

We design and create stairs with attention to detail–i.e., we ensure that the joints and spindles are tight and the fasteners are not visible. Our quality craftsmanship stems from years and years of practice and training. 

Good communication and transparency are at the heart of our business. 

We believe that good communication starts from designing, planning, price quoting, and invoice (that include every project detail) to the actual installation. 

We are experts in safety staircase design. 

Our licensed stair builders have in-depth knowledge of safe and ergonomic design, including gentle rise, longer runs, predictable width and height of the steps, non-slip rail grip, additional hand railings, etc. 

Furthermore, our builders follow the recommended staircase measurements determined by building codes and standard safety practices.

For example, the ideal tread depth (the distance between the stair nose face and riser face) for seniors is between 280 mm and 330. Another viable design for these people is a staircase with low-rise steps with intermediate landing platforms. 

Meanwhile, even the slightest irregularity in a walking surface (e.g., ⅛ inch or more) can increase the risk of slip and fall, regardless of one’s age. 

We customize staircase design. 

We will sit with you to design and plan your staircase based on your floor plan, the size of your home (and household), the interior design, the people who are going to use it (elders, children, people with mobility issues, etc.), and other factors. 

We cover big and small projects.

Our portfolio of past work includes tiny houses and charming cabins to sprawling mansions and commercial buildings. But regardless of the scope of the project and budget, we can always assure quality craftsmanship and materials that can stand the test of time and high foot traffic. 

We have a staircase showroom. 

To demonstrate our products and craftsmanship to our clients, we have a showroom at 11270 Pyrites Way, Gold River, California, 95670 (about 30 minutes east of Sacramento). Our venue is open Monday to Friday, between 6 am and 5 pm PST; you can also visit us on Saturday provided that you schedule an appointment in advance.
