technical information

Use and Care

Staircase must be installed level and square.

Shim any void between framing and back of stringer (usually wall finish thickness) and screw through stringers into framing at each stud above and below tread. Where walls are not used to support the staircase adequate substringers must be used.

Use glue under landing tread and glue nailing cleat behind bottom riser or squeak will result in these areas.

Apply a minimum two to three top coat paint / finish system within 60 days of delivery to effectively seal wood.

Staircase should be backpainted or ceiling installed underneath to provide vapor barrier from basement, crawl space, or other damp areas to prevent squeaks. Likewise shield under side of stair from heat sources such as water heaters, furnaces, etc.

Do not subject staircase to extremes of temperature or humidity. Intense exposure to direct sunlight such as in sunrooms or windows with southern exposure, especially in enclosed areas, should be avoided.
