Committed to safety and tradition, wooden baluster systems are a sure way to elevate the appearance of one’s home. This is because they are a versatile choice, with numerous options for customization. Therefore, whether a staircase is part of new construction or remodeling project, wood products can be designed to blend seamlessly with existing wood parts.
By definition, a baluster (or spindle) is a molded shaft or square that has been derived from a rectangular or square plank. It supports the handrail of a staircase, and when classified as a group, balusters are called balustrades. When placed side by side, balusters are generally separated by the same measurement as the size of the square bottom section. As one can imagine, the distance between balusters is a critical element, not only for aesthetic appeal, but also for safety and strength. Homeowners, commercial builders, and/or architects must consider which wood products will stand the test of time, and this depends greatly on the location of a staircase.
For instance, suppose a customer wants to renovate their exterior porch balustrades or staircase with a wooden system. At first, the customer will primarily think about the look or appearance. Yet, they will also be interested in maintenance and upkeep. When it comes to reconstructing one’s outside staircase or handrails, it is wise to contact a knowledgeable team that’s familiar with wood design and styles, while keeping quality, durability, and safety in mind.
