Watch a Loudoun Stairs stair renovation rip out.


Before and After #1

Contemporary Rail Upgrade

This customer wanted to replace their original, visually-obstructing Colonial-style rail system with a clean, contemporary look that would open up the rooms and stairs.

Before:
A post-to-post Colonial-style pine rake rail system with white lacquer newel posts and balusters on a stained oak plate, with a stained oak rail that turned at the top of the staircase.

After:
An over-the-post stainless steel cable rail system set to the stairs’ pitch degree, with square newels welded to base plates and securely mounted on a stained and finished oak plate. A cable system with stainless steel tension connectors was used in lieu of balusters.

 


Before and After #2

Circular Stair Upgrade

Considering it to be the focal point of the home, this customer wanted to upgrade their foyer staircase, taking it from a wood rail system to an oak tread and riser circular stair with a decorative metal baluster rail system.

Before:
Carpet-grade circular foyer staircase with stained oak rail, starting with a volute on a stained oak newel on the bullnose tread, and curved to the radius of the stair. Supported by stained oak Colonial-style 5015 balusters and carpeted.

 

After:
Oak-finished tread and riser circular staircase with finished oak railing, with a volute on a stained oak starting newel on the bullnose tread, curved to the radius of the stair. Supported by a metal baluster system with a single-basket pattern (a twist above and below the basket) and three twist balusters (double, single, double) between each basket baluster.



Before and After #3

Decorative Metal Baluster Upgrade

This customer wanted to update all railing systems throughout the home, taking them from the white lacquered Colonial-style balusters to a custom medallion-style metal baluster system.

Before:
An over-the-post wooden white lacquered 5015 baluster rail system on a boxed stair, set atop a white lacquered plate with oak-stained rail and starting newel post. Also a replacement of the balusters on an oak circular stair.

 

After:
Only the wood balusters were replaced, using decorative medallion-styled metal balusters with a varied alternating pattern between straight and medallion balusters. On the circular stair, decorative medallion-style and straight metal balusters were installed in a repetitive pattern of three straight balusters in between each medallion-style baluster for a stunning upgrade.



Before and After #4

From Knee Walls to a Decorative Metal Baluster System

Removal of a solid knee wall that led up the foyer stair and into the second floor was top priority for this customer who wanted a metal baluster rail system that would add elegance and provide more light and views.

Before:
A Brazilian Cherry boxed tread and riser stair system with solid knee walls in lieu of a balustrade system, capped with white lacquered plates.

 

After:
An over-the-post system with finished 6910 solid cap rail, 6 ¼” boxed flat pan newel posts, center newels, rail fitting, and 7” plates, all made from Brazilian Cherry. Custom Designer Series 5/8” satin black metal balusters were added in a repeating baluster pattern of double/single/double knuckle between fleur-designed balusters. The entry focal point looks more elegant and open, lets more light into the foyer and second story overlook areas, which makes the entire area appear larger.
