use the calculator to add your decks measurements for: total rise height from the top of your deck to the ground, which accounts for the vertical distance between the treads of each step step run horizontal tread depth for each stair; tread type whether youll use a single board or two smaller boards to create a stair tread
use this automatic stair calculator for applications requiring the risers to be 7 3/4 maximum. use the number boxes to enter a value for the vertical rise. the results returned are the number of steps along with the risers and the angle of the stringer.
stair stringer treads: rise and going. our stair stringers range from 1-17 treads steps and are made for standard rise and going and work on a 1000mm between centres of the stringers. the rise is the vertical measurement taken from one step level to the next.standard rise is 175mm.
will your treads be fully exposed as with an open or notched stringer?. do you prefer the tread nosing to be set within the periphery of the width of the outer stringers?. do you want open or closed rises?. think it through as i show you the drafting and layout techniques for all of them plus building code references.
stair stringer calculator spreadsheet. recently i wrote an article about how to build stairs.since then ive had inquiries about some type of calculator or spreadsheet to quickly calculate the rise and run measurements for the stringers.
this calculator calculates riser height from total height and number of risers and provides results for slope, rise and run ratio's, total run of the stairs, stringer length and the minimum required floor opening. the amount the stair tread projects passed the vertical riser below; decks. deck material plus cost for joist and decking
