Refinishing wood stair railings

NorthlutMarch 18, 2012

We are considering making an offer on a house that has beautiful stained wood railings along the stairs, but they're pretty worn and look like they need to be sanded down and re-stained. What type of contractor would I hire to do that kind of work? Is this something a general painting contractor would do (with high quality workmanship)?

I would think a hardwood floor refinisher would be the right type of craftsperson for that work. Let's see what others say...

Good idea Andreadeg!


Some Cabinet-shops may have people they refer-out for these kinds of jobs. Some may be retired people who like tasks like this!
Some cabinet-installers may like these as "side jobs".
Some painters' are also good at wood-working/refinishing.

Check your areas service-directories, hardware/paint stores, etc.
Some Realtors may also have leads!
