Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Step Up to a Safe, Stylish Staircase
Balusters are the jewelry of a staircase. Unlike your favorite ring or necklace, though, you'll often need more than 30 matching balusters to make a set. This means the cost of a fancy turned baluster can add up quickly, so consider salvaged balusters. Architectural salvage shops often rescue a whole set from a Dumpster, and you can purchase a style that is not readily available today. The photo here is of balusters at Re-Store, one of my go-to salvage places in Philadelphia. Often, older styles were thicker and made of hardwoods, unlike the softwood balusters you generally find today. If they are coated with many layers of paint, find a local paint stripper who can dip them for you. This is a safer, quicker and more environmentally friendly way to strip paint than doing it yourself.
