Stair Projects

An examination of some of the latest custom metal stairs we have had the opportunity to fabricate for commercial as well as residential clients throughout the Chicagoland area – to give you ideas for your next project! A custom metal stairs varies a lot depending on the finish, primary use, location as well as a slew of other factors. For example if your looking for a small staircase for your home – the ideal application would be to have it primed using an oil based primer combined with a top coat of oil based paint to ensure it’s durability. Now if your looking for a commercial application where the staircase will be in contact with water a lot – we recommend the galvanization process which soaks the product in a chemical bath to ensure that the steel will not deteriorate too quickly. Have more questions – feel free to give us a call. Meanwhile check out our section on past custom metal stairs we have fabricated.
