Stair Remodeling - Custom Stairs - Half Wall Removal.
Stair Remodel: A stair rail remodel is a common home improvement project. Stairs are typically not a high priority when it comes to remodeling. Consider this though; the stair case is typically the focal point of the entire home, as it can be seen from both the first and second floors. Updating your rail system will change the overall appearance of your entire home, while adding value.
Most remodels can be accomplished with minimal disruption to your home. Contact Arizona Stairs to discuss design ideas, options and details. We are able to complete most remodels in 3 to 5 days. Lead times will vary, depending on our schedule and the materials involved. We do stock a wide variety of products and most remodels are scheduled within 3 weeks.

Half Wall Removal: Many homes being built today have a half wall (pony wall) going up the stairs or at the loft. If you have those dreaded half walls in your home, you are not stuck, you have options. We can remove the half wall and replace it with open rail. Opening up a room or stair way will increase the visibility, while making the space feel larger and more inviting.
Removing a half wall is not a difficult process. The wall will be taken down in sections and in most cases can be completed within a matter of hours. Electrical outlets and flooring at the location may need to be considered, but we can usually work around. Once the wall is removed, there will be drywall repair, texture and paint touch up. If you have the original paint, the walls can typically be touched up. If the paint is not available, the entire wall will need to be painted. The drywall and paint work will need to be completed by others. Please talk to our Representative for more information. Drywall dust is very fine and will get airborne. We will protect and cleanup the immediate area, but expect a bit more dust cleanup after a pony wall removal.
Stain and Finish: Stain and finish is a crucial part to any wood work. A properly prepped and finished product will bring out the true natural beauty and luster of wood.
Keep in mind that all wood does not grow in the same colors. Wood will naturally grow in different shades and colors. For example, two pieces of cherry wood from the same tree may be completely different colors. That contributes to ”The natural beauty of wood”. The color of the wood will be influenced by texture, grain porosity and species. Applying stain helps to more evenly distribute a common color throughout the wood. Staining is just one part; wood must be properly sanded, sealed and protected.
We offer a wide variety of stain color options at Arizona Stairs. We can complement flooring, cabinetry and decor. Our Finishers are experts in the field of stain and finish. We will properly stain and protect all of our work in order to leave you with the highest quality product that will last many years to come.
