Stairs Contractor FAQs
Has the demand for stairs on new home construction job sites increased or decreased in the last 5 years?
According to the National Association of Home Builders, the average new home size has increased by 15% in the last five years. This means that more homes are being built with two or more stories, which require stairs.
Additionally, the popularity of open floor plans has also increased in recent years, which often require stairs to access the upper level. As a result of these factors, the demand for stairs on new home construction job sites has increased.
Is stairs software available that combines scheduling, estimating, job confirmations, and time tracking in one solution?
Yes, software such as Bolt provides these critical software capabilities to efficiently managing your business:
- Scheduling: efficiently assign and track tasks, manage project timelines, allocate resources, and communicate with team members.
- Estimating: assists in estimating material quantities, labor hours, and associated expenses to provide clients with accurate and competitive pricing.

Scheduling: Stairs contractors must know the builder's schedule and work to ensure that their work does not interfere with the overall project. This can be difficult, as stairs contractors often must work around other tradespeople on the same project.

Code compliance: Stairs must meet all applicable building codes, so stairs contractors need to be familiar with the codes in the area where they are working. This can be a challenge, as codes can vary from state to state and even from city to city.
