L.J. Smith Stair company was started by L.J. Smith in 1885 in Pittsburgh. In 1911 he moved his family to Ohio and renamed the company L.J. Smith and Son. The father and son team, along with seven other employees, began designing and building circular stairways in upscale homes all over the south. Smith died in 1942 but the company still thrived under the leadership of his son.
Why L.J. Smith Stairs?
L.J. Smith stairs are known for their unique design, durability, and style. The company created and patented their one-of-a kind handrail fittings for the following reasons:
- They provide increased safety because the handrail fittings are more securely fastened to the handrail and newel posts.
- Once installed the hardware is totally concealed that enhances appearance and safety. There are no nail holes, bolt holes, or putty that are apparent on other stair systems.
The innovation L.J. Smith stairs has created is known as their Conect-A-Kit system that makes their stair systems a “step” above the competition. With the increased safety and enhanced appearance you cannot afford to use a different stair system for your remodeling project.
The balusters are also stronger and more secure than other stair types. L.J. Stairs uses a double end lag screw that results in the baluster being more secure to the treads. The innovative system makes the baluster very tight against the surface increasing the rail system strength.
The balusters also have an adjusted turning length that makes the pattern flow parallel with to the handrail which is something no other company does. It’s this attention to detail that makes L.J. Stairs the industry choice for builders and homeowners.
