This forum has a good readership. I'm thinking there might be someone here that knows someone that knows someone etc.
My house currently has 9 wooden stairs up to the front door. The wood has rotted at the bottom and I need to replace it. I don't want to use wood again if i can help it, as using wood for outdoor stairs is harshly dumb IMO. I am shopping for someone to custom make me some stringers out of Aluminum or Steel. Something that will last a very long time (Aluminum preferred).
Now i say custom because the stairs aren't straight, They have the impression of a slight curve to them. The stringers underneath are straight, but the treads are all different lengths and the overall length is different. I can't just go to home depot and buy their stock ones, it won't work. For example
Stringer 1) Riser = 8" Tread = 8" Length = 8' 9.5"
Stringer 2) Riser = 8" Tread = 9.25" Length = 9'
Stringer 3) Riser = 8" Tread = 10.5" Length = 9' 6.5"
Anyone know of a metal place that can make this kind of thing? I tried one aluminum place in Langley but they told me they don't do custom stuff.
