Spiral Stairs for Deck and Patio
Project ID: #1075
Curved Spiral Stairs Add Upgrade to Deck
Spiral stairs with metal railing connect the deck and patio with a compact footprint. No more oversize wooden stairs – instead, more room to barbecue!
Spiral stairs provide unique access. They connect a home’s second floor wood deck and a patio below. In order to maximize outdoor space, the homeowners needed a smaller solution. A traditional staircase takes a lot of space. This spiral staircase links the deck and patio with a compact footprint. It also allows natural circulation between the two. The homeowners spend more time cooking, eating, and relaxing. Not walking down long flights of stairs. So they maximized the space for those activities. As far as efficiency goes, spiral stairs with metal handrail showcases a beautiful solution. It minimizes the need to cut into valuable real estate. No oversize landings, thick wood columns, and busy wood handrail. Here, the stairs left more space to roam on the new stamped concrete patio.
Convenient, Safe, and Secure
Additionally, a beautiful LED lighting system lights each step. It inspires confidence and beauty at any time of night. In order to match, the owner selected wood treads for the spiral stairs in the same material as the deck. In that case, should any of these Trex boards show signs of wear, replacing a board or a whole tread is easy. So with this system, a board can be removed and replaced individually on the spiral stairs. Powder coating covers the metal railing in a classic black finish. Outdoor installation requires durable finishes. Customers choose powder coating as a first line of defense. Metal may be galvanized or zinc primed underneath like this one.
Another design element stands out. A steel band winds around the spiral stairs because it attaches at the corner of each tread. It follows the line of the handrail giving the stairs. As it turns out, this simple feature illustrates the natural helix. Unique features can add to a home’s value. So spiral stairs add valuable function.
