Architectural Stairbuilding and Handrail fabrication and especially curved stairs are often seen as the pinnacle of the carpenter and metalworker trades. By working closely with the architects, designers, builders and homeowners Paradigm can provide project solutions for anything from historic renovation to high-tech modern design.
Our artisans can fabricate and install some of the specialty parts and assemblies that many other stair shops shy away from such as helical easings ascending volutes, and wreath turns which gives us the unique capability to provide our clients with smooth flowing continuous balustrade designs.
While we do fabricate our railing profiles and parts we can also design and execute stair & railing projects using stock parts from any of the national stair companies so our projects can be tailored to fit a wide range of budgets.

As I’ve done with The Building & Remodeling Business & Project Management Wiki I wanted to build an glossary of Glossary of Stair & Railing Terms. I may still do so adding illustrations to the collection I have already built and this great PDF here from The Stairway Manufacturers’ Association:
