Can this post be secured?
I know this is not the right forum for this question, but I feel like I know you guys. :)
Our buyer has come back with the following request:
"Secure at the top stair railing for safety."
We're not even sure if this is possible. The stretch of railing is over 11 feet long and has always been a little wobbly. We reinforced the other two points where the handrail meets the wall (going down the stairs) many years ago to combat the wobble.
(1) Can this be more secure than it already is?
(2) If yes, how? My husband is pretty handy and I think we could fix it ourselves. Otherwise, how would I find a handyman and approx how much should I expect to pay?
Here are some pictures of the railing in question. The wobbly point is the newel post close to the light switch at the landing.
