Knowing the types of building stairs, the characteristics and uses of each

Stairs are a structure designed to bridge a large vertical distance between lower and higher levels by dividing it into smaller vertical distances. This is achieved as a diagonal series of horizontal platforms called steps which enable passage to the other level by stepping from one to another step in turn. Meanwhile, natural stone steps or steppers are a unique option to use for steep inclines or simple stair steps in a garden or walkway. Uses range from home entryways, lakeside walkways, pool entries, and garden steps. Stone stair treads are naturally anti-slip and are a less expensive alternative compared to poured concrete.  Here, take a look at this list of popular stair styles, please:

  1. Straight Stair with Central Landing

On longer flights of stairs, a landing is inserted to break up the flight. Building codes require this for floor heights above 12 feet. Especially in commercial buildings, straight stairs often have platforms halfway up the run of the stairs.

  1. L Shaped Stair

The L shaped stair is a variation of the straight stair with a bend in some portion of the stair. This bend is usually achieved by adding a landing at the transition point. The bend is often 90 degrees, however, it does not have to be. If the landing is closer to the top or bottom of the stairs it is sometimes referred to as a long L stair or a quarter turn stair.

  1. U Shaped Stair

U shaped stairs are essentially two parallel flights of straight stairs joined by a landing that creates a 180-degree turn in the walk line.

  1. Winder Stair

Winder stairs are a variation of an L shaped stair but instead of a flat landing, they have pie-shaped or triangular steps at the corner transition. Winder stairs are generally limited to dwelling units or very small spaces, unless the stair can meet the more restrictive requirements for curved stairways. When provided, winder treads must be a minimum of 11 inches in depth at the walk line and 10 inches in depth inside the walk line, with some reductions in depth for dwelling units and spiral stairs.

  1. Spiral Stair

Spiral stairs follow a helical arc. They usually have a very compact design and the treads radiate around a central pole. Also the option as spiral staircase with concrete is amazing and shows in an ultra-modern look. Spiral stairs in concrete do have a very special effect on the surrounding. The natural concrete is very cold but mixed with marble dust you can create warm impressions and it can be adjusted to all floor types and house styles.

What are the materials used in stairs?

Different staircase materials are one of the most experimental architectural elements. A staircase can surpass other architectural components of the home when it comes to versatility in design and types of material used. With modern architecture and design, the staircase designs and styles too have evolved over the years. If you are constructing your home or remodeling the same, you can choose from several materials available in the market.

Our most popular choices are timber, stone, glass and concrete. Some people choose a vinyl or carpet overlay but the beauty of natural stone and concrete, in particular, is that we can color match to walls and flooring.

Porcelain stoneware is an excellent solution for covering indoor and outdoor staircases and steps, with many surfaces to choose from depending on the context. The choice of this material guarantees total continuity with floor and wall coverings, and also avoids joints. Durable porcelain wood-look tile flooring is ideal for stairs. Porcelain is a material that resists stains, dents, scratches, and fire, and it still looks like new years after installation.

Meanwhile, stone is another commonly used material for building a staircase. Stone offers color and texture in variety. Marble and granite are commonly used stones for a staircase. For homes with marble flowing, the marble staircase is a preferred choice and obvious choice. Stone is a better option for stairs in entryway or garden area. Stone materials add elegance to your home design and can be carved into different shapes to form a staircase.

How do you maintain stairs?

You should ensure that the stairs are free of debris or other objects and that there’s no loose debris on the surface to make your climb easier. Proper maintenance is important for stairs which are used regularly. If stairs become wet, slippery or have cracks in the surface, it can cause a fall.

Also, it’s not enough to just examine the stairs as you’re walking up and down the staircase. You could have unseen damage right under your feet, beneath the staircase. If space permits, poke your head underneath the staircase to see if you notice any signs of damage or rust. Just be careful to watch your head.

On the other hand, waterproofing exterior stairs will extend the life of your stairs and the iron railings and help prevent water damage. This is especially important if you have iron stairs outdoor that are exposed to the elements.
