A shaky stair railing is an accident waiting to happen. Any time someone uses an unstable rail for support, he can fall through the rail to the ground below. Stair railing repair is fairly simple to do, so don’t put it off. Fixing a railing involves checking the upright newel posts that anchor the railing as well as the handrail and its fasteners. If your stairway has balusters, you may need to tighten them as well to finish the stair railing repair.
- Excess humidity can lead to condensation on the water pipes and toilet tanks throughout your home.
- Humidity can cause mold and mildew problems in both carpeted and wood flooring. It can also cause the molding to separate from the wall and/or floor, which leads to gaps.
- An attic that doesn’t have proper ventilation can become damp and hot without the proper temperature control.
“The newel posts are the main supports for the railing, and the balusters are decorative spindles in between the newel posts.”
