Welcome to the forum! If you use older railing and it has dividers or pickets, make sure is is up to code or you will be liable in the future. Just a handrail, fine. Check the size, height, distance past top and bottom step, returns, etc., here: http://www.stairways.org/pdf/2006%20...C%20SCREEN.pdf
Be safe, Gary
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
