I have a 48in deck. I have a 6 stringer. Will this work?

Asked by BigK June 25, 2020
2
Answers

BigK, No, that will not work. It seems like a custom-build stringer will be needed. You can ask a PRO associate about ordering one, or you could build it yourself. We recommend getting the stair-step specifics (height of riser, etc.) from a building inspector's office in your area. Alternatively, you could hire a local builder/contractor to do the job as he or she would know code requirements for your location.

can these be used for indoor use?

Kevin, Many people will use pressure-treated stringers for their basement stairs as that area might have exposure to water through cracks in the foundation, water that comes in through gaps/openings when the home is older, or possibly flooding.

Answer

Mjd, The 6-step would have worked had you not needed the steps to run out to 64 in. You will need a 9-step that is custom-built. The riser height of this 6-step is 6-3/4 in. and the run is 10 in.

Dee, You will measure from the top of the lower floor (the ground, in your case) to the top of the upper floor (the deck, in your case).

Asked by hugo November 4, 2019

Answers

I wouldn't advise it. If you need 10 steps your deck or platform must be pretty high & you don't want to risk a stringer failing from being scabbed or pieced together. There are videos on You Tube, & probably on Home Depot site, showing how to measure & cut stringers from a 2x8 or 2x10. Simple math & carpentry skills are needed, plus a carpenter's square. Google "measuring & cutting stringers".

Easy to build steps with these precut stringers. Buy the metal stringed hangers for a really quick installation. Check that there are no cracks in the wood going through the tred and riser cut outs before buying.

keep a eye on them
I built a tree fort and needed steps to get up there. So I fabricated the steps I used a piece of angle iron and bolted the strings to it. This worked great but when I went back 4 months later I bought 3 more to finish I got them bolted to the angle iron put it up to the others I got 4 months earlier. They did not match it looks like the first ones they used 2x8s but when I got the others then used 2x10s I had to cut the new boards to match the old ones pain in the butt. Make sure you check them all before you buy them.

None the same
I thought this would be a big time saver. WRONG. None of the dimensions were the same, some differing 3/8" I would have had to re cut most of the steps. You could find some boards the same, but the height of the steps were not the same. Had to return the all. Very disappointed.
