Neverending quality and expertise.
Before any staircase can be constructed, enough space will be required for the stairs, the railings, as well as some extra space so people can access it; however, some people simply do not have the space to construct a new staircase.
This is where spiral staircases come in – their compact and efficient form makes it the ideal staircase in most situations and locations, and indeed, a lot of happy homeowners have benefited with the addition of a new spiral stairs in their home.
Despite their advantage in terms of space, spiral stairs still require enough room; in some cases, it might not be possible (without massive expense) to construct a new staircase even when using spiral stairs. For the rest however, their problem is the lack of open space to construct a new set of spiral stairs. While the outdoors is always a good location for spiral stairs, it might not be possible or they still want a new indoor spiral staircase. To solve the dilemma, some people have decided to create an access hole for their spiral stairs.
If you don’t have the appropriate space for other stairs, you may need to create access holes for your spiral staircase. Note that this involves permanently removing a portion of your home or ceiling (depending on the floor) in exchange for spiral stairs, so you should seriously consider it before you go ahead with the project. Of course, you can always fill the hole again, but this will cost some more, and the floor or ceiling just won’t look the same as it was before. If you’re feeling unsure about it, you should ask a building or staircase expert if it’s wise to go ahead and ask about the local building codes.
Access holes can be created by doing it yourself, or finding a contractor to do it for you. Some spiral staircase manufacturers (like Spiral UK) can even do this for you. Before proceeding with the project, some things have to be considered first:
