Building a Large Staircase. Do’s and Dont’s

I recently tackled a project that has been on my to do list for a while. I needed to tear down and rebuild a two story staircase at my house. While the staircase was still standing, it was in rough shape and is becoming dangerous. Whoever built it didn’t use treated material and my boot has gone through more than one tread.

While I did replace the worst of them, the stringers are also so rotten that a screw breaks it apart more instead of holding. It was also put together with non ring shank nails which are backing themselves out now. With all the problems, it’s easiest if I just knock it down and start over. I’ve now built lets see….1, 2, 3….sets of stairs. So lets go ahead and put number 4 on the books!
