One of the best ways to insure a quality staircase is to start out by getting the right newel posts. These posts essentially hold the handrail together, so it is obviously a very crucial part of any balustrade. You can look at it a few different ways when you are selecting the best post for your stairway. You can look at it as an anchor to the rest of the stairway. You can look at it as the wood foundation. Either way you want to make sure it is installed correctly or you will have lots of problems.
After you know what kind of posts you are going with in your stair case you can pick out the other parts that will make up the rest of your project. Many times you will want to get with the owner a week or so before hand so you can get their feedback. If you are ordering your parts online then you will need to plan for the time it will take to receive the parts from a freight provider. Before you start hammering you need to make sure you have all the right parts and that your project will come together without any type of hiccup.
