So you take the measure of your wooden staircase yourself
Building a wooden staircase is a complicated process. For sure results, it would be best to hire a specialist. But how do you choose this? We offer you an approach that has proved to be the most appropriate for many people.
In the first step, you yourself make the calculations of the dimensions of the stairs. Then you go to a variety of professionals and discuss with them the possible costs and duration of work. You decide in the end for the person who has created the most trust in you.
Build wooden stairs yourself - is that a good idea?
By having the numbers on the project in mind, you could also better gauge the quality of the offers you are being given.
The professionals then come to your home to confirm the calculations and start the project.

Check local regulations and guidelines for building wooden stairs. Sometimes there are rules to be taken seriously also for the interior, which serve the greater security.

Now determine the height of the stairs. It must be so that all future users can move freely on it. Also calculate the number of steps and the total length of the construction.
Determine the height and width of the stairs yourself
Calculate the number of feet and steps and the length
Measure the distance from the floor to the first floor. Divide the result in 7.5. Thus, you calculate the number of risers that you will need within the project. Now draw 1 and you get the number of treads.
To figure out the optimal stair length, multiply this result by 10.
The number of steps is important
All that remains is to add the highest stiffening and the extent of the upper entrance step. This step is very important. So you know how far the tread goes beyond the riser.
After all these dimensions you could get a complete picture of the staircase construction.

The final calculations
Now it is time to calculate the thickness of the upper ceiling beams, the drywall and the actual area of the upper floor. The sum of these must be added to the height.

The result of summing the two would have to be separated by the number of stages. So you get the right number of steps in the staircase passage, so you also reach the appropriate height.
Multiply this result by 10 times and add the thickness of the upper riser and the radius of the antiskid.
Also think about the lighting in the staircase
The material for the wooden staircase
Now it's about calculating the actual construction process of the wooden staircase. Understanding this would give you a much better understanding of the costs involved.
Wood and metal in combination
After you have made these dimensions yourself, you could go to different providers and agree on the conditions for the price. This saves you time and money compared to having someone come to your home to do this preliminary work.
