Can I get a 6 step stronger cut with an 8" riser and 10" run?

Asked by Mn April 30, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Mn, You will need to check with your preferred Home Depot location to see if a special order is possible from the manufacturing facility. While those numbers for rise and run do not seem abnormal, we would recommend that you do a bit of research to confirm that you are within the acceptable range for the building code in your area, especially if this is for a commercial location or if you plan to sell/want to avoid any issues with people tripping/falling.

Hello Bjh, This product is a single stringer.

Can I use these to build steps on a sloped yard? They will be in direct contact with ground.

Asked by Sand2660 April 10, 2021

Answers

You could. But as in contact with ground on slope I would put 3" to 6" inches of crushed stone 4" wide digging down a couple of inches this will allow them to last longer, Bottom step should be on a solid base.

What do need to replace my basement stairs

Asked by Car February 28, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Car, That is going to depend on how much you need to replace - the stringer and the treads, or just the treads (and maybe risers, too). If you need treads and risers only, Home Depot has an abundances of those that you can find by simply keying-in the word "tread" or "riser", then finding the one that has dimensions that match-up with what you currently have- if what you have meets the requirements for building code in your area. This is something that you can find by contacting your township or city. You should be directed to a website that has that information. As for the stringers, we suggest that you research this, too, as the acceptable riser height varies around the country. Let's look at what you need to do to install new stringers. First, measure from floor to the top of the stairs, in inches. Let's say that you have 42 inches. Divide that number by 7 - a rough number for calculating number of steps. The result is 6. You need a 6-step stringer. In many cases, though, the number does not come-out so perfectly, and that is when you have to build your own stringer or have someone do it for you - a licensed builder, for example, who knows your area's building requirements. If you found from your research on the riser high requirement for your area that what you have currently is acceptable, you could use the former stringer(s) as a template. Depending on the number of steps you need, 2X10 or 2X12 lumber is used for making stringers.

Asked by Mimi January 28, 2021

Answers

Mimi, If you are looking for pressure-treated stringers that will accommodate that number of steps, you will have to call your nearest Home Depot location to inquire about a special order as stringers of this size are not a stocked item. Alternatively, you could have a local builder construct them as he or she would be familiar with building code requirements (for the stairs) in your area.

These stringers made it easy to repair the steps to a 1921 craftsman farmhouse. My only complaint is some of the tips of the risers were split diagonally down the stringer which I believe will compromise the integrity of the stairs down the road. I pre-drilled all of my holes and some of the screws still made the splits worse. All in all, much better than trying to create my own—big time saver!

One was broken and the other has a hole in it. I think the broken one can be blamed on poor packaging as it has no padding and no instructions telling the driver to lay flat. The rotted know on the other is just poor workmanship.

Made building stairs easy!
I am pretty handy when it comes to building things but when I had to put some new stairs on my deck I wasn't sure that I would be able to pull this one off as easily as the rest of my efforts. In a nutshell, the stringers (I used 3 of these for 4'-wide stairs) made building my steps a snap. Would definitely use these again.
