Exterior - House Construction And Remodeling
Exterior is often a word used to refer to the outside of your house. A exterior set up stairs would be located on the outside, an interior set of stairs would be located on the inside.
Exterior Stair Construction Advice
The stairs located on the inside of a building probably aren't going to
be affected by snow, ice, wind, rain, dirt, moisture or extreme climate
conditions. Extreme daily temperature changes, from hot to cold can
wreak havoc on wood stairways.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to go through the stair glossary to get more information on wood rot, repairs, water damage, stair treads and design.
I've seen plenty of stairways constructed out of wood and metal, suffering from water damage, termites and corrosion. 90% of the time, these problems could have been avoided, by an experienced designer or stair builder.
