Thanks Jan. Would that be to spray or paint by hand? A lot of prep for the spraying.

Hello David,

This is Raffie from Women Painting & Decorating.

Do you want to paint or re-stain stringers, treds and handrail?

We suggest you to re-stain those, but can paint them if you prefer so.

Have a good evening,

Hi David,

This staircase need a lot time to do sanding,treatment, stain. .....etc to be perfectly. Also I prefer to change the spindles with primer (new one) don't retain it. It will be more clean stain and cheaper.

The price include labour only around 7000 $.

Thank you,

This is a fairly large job. Would you spray or paint by hand? How long do you think it would take. A ball park idea ?
