lift the stairs with a 2-by-4 brace on top of a hydraulic bottle jack to take the weight off of cracked or split stringers to make the repair possible. step 2 apply a heavy duty mending plate, at least four inches long, to the bottom edge of the stair stringer spanning the damaged area.
three waves of repair thus far, judging from the different woods used. looks like fun. don’t get much deck/stair repair so your ideas are welcome. the bottom flight has 48″w treads 2.5 x 11 = 3×12? hung off metal stair backets on the non pt stringers. ok except these two. they have termite damage and one was secured with some deck screws.
what if you could take the best construction calculator and fix it. gable area, backing angles, plan angles, rough vs. finished stair layout dimensions, stringer throat, stringer installation
this doesn't happen very often on closed stairwells stairs with walls on both sides , but open stairwells can experience stringer spread for a number of reasons: house settling, wall movement, inappropriate repairs, and poor original workmanship are all common culprits. the trick is to pull the stringers back together and keep them that way.
wooden stair stringers are the back bone of any stair case. they are the boards placed at the side to support the weight of the risers and the treads. wooden stair stringers also support our weight as we go up and down the stairs. if the wooden stair stringer breaks for some reason, your stair case will not be safe to use.
