Questions & Answers

Can 2 stringers be bolted together to extend length. Can a railing be attached to stringer.

Asked by Ron December 30, 2020

Answer

Not sure about bolting them together as they get bolted into the wall. I would expect you could butt them up against one another when attaching them to the wall to extend length. You would need to measure the distance between the two treads on each side of the joint to ensure uniformity of tread depth.

How do I get 2 additional treads?

What size are the masonry nails that are provided and what size tapcon screw would replace them?

Asked by joel May 18, 2020

Answer

I did not use masonry nails because they are too difficult to drive them into the cement block foundation. Instead, I used # 10 stainless steel Phillips head screws with matching plastic inserts purchased from Home Depot. First, I placed the stringers against the wall and spotted the holes in the wall with a 1/8 inch diameter carbide tipped masonry drill. Than I drilled holes into the wall using a larger diameter drill to accommodate said plastic inserts. (This allows for easy future removal of the stringer when I need to clean and/or paint the walls or replace the stringers. Another option is to fasten 2 x 10 inch pressure treated boards to the wall and attach the stringer to the board. This works well if your walls are uneven or otherwise compromised.

Answer

Only two stringers are required. Try to prevent moisture/condensation from contacting stringers. Reason: Bilco stringers are made from galvanized steel to prevent rust. But I have found rust occurs within a few years and eventually looks unsightly. It would be better if Bilco offered a stainless steel option.

look like this stringer is for 8 steps and I have 9 steps .how I go about

These made our replacement project a breeze...we opted to use masonry screws (predrilled holes) instead of the supplied fasteners.

Great Purchase1
The stringers are well engineered and very durable. The galvanized steel won't rust and the slots for the treads allow breathing room to reduce the risk of rot. The stairs are a huge improvement over previous wooden stringers. One challenge to the installation were the short mortar nails. They just did not hold. We ended up using longer concrete screws, which are very secure. However the larger screws meant that we had to use a drill larger holes--and its challenge to get through galvanized steel. Once we had the right drill bit and refreshed our patience, all worked well. All in all we are very pleased with this purchase, These stringers are build to last!

Was very easy to install, I used screw and plastic concrete inserts to attach to the cement wall, but other than that there were no further changes or modifications to the instructions. It took me less than two hours to install. The new steps are very solid, there is no give on the 2x10 treads and are much safer than my old wooden stringers and steps which I was able to pull out with out the use of any tools. My oil furnace technician will be very happy when he sees these.
