Source for Stair Railing?


It's about time to start the stair railing and related stuff.

Any suggested sources for railing and balusters?

I would suggest: http://www.ljsmith.net/

Most lumber yards around here carry these parts, you might check a real lumber yard in your area. Then there is hommer D.

Inside or outside railings?
Wood or steel?
Lowes and HD stock oak and pine.
Google "stair parts" for hundreds of other company's if you looking for something different.

Inside....most Likely to be painted. We are so tired of oak

I'm trying to talk the wife into iron balusters.

And then I found Houzz.....talk about a lot of ideas

Southwest theme on the inside of the house?
When I'm trying to in vision what's looks best I use Bing and go down to where it shows the pictures.
There's often galleys on the sites selling the stair parts.
Might make it easier for her swing your way to be able to see it first.

For paint grade I would suggest a trim supply co., they will have everything you need and cheaper than most places.

I second that. You can always get a better deal at a local trim supply place then at lowes or home depot.
Better yet is find a specialty stair railing supplier and get it from them, if you know someone with a contractors license.
