Staircase Impressions

by Glori Gayster
A Unique Approach From Top to Bottom.

When you enter a home, nothing can make a more lasting impression than a magnificent staircase. No longer simply for the mansions seen on television or in the movies, staircase banister makeovers are more affordable than ever. And, South Jersey residents are lucky enough to have Staircase Impressions around the corner.

The company specializes in high-quality staircase and railing system designs and installations. The team and its well-established process can create one of the most drastic transformations to your home at a very affordable price, whether it is for a new home or renovating an existing staircase.

“At Staircase Impressions, we consider every home as if it is our own – every home- owner as if he or she is a family member,” says owner Mike Orodenker, who boasts more than a decade of industry experience in all areas of stairway makeovers. “Our experience is complemented by a unique approach driven by offering service, service and more service.”

With its focus exclusively on stairs and railing systems, homeowners benefit from the company’s expertise and much more. Staircase Impressions is able to provide a vast collection of designs, styles and finishes, and through its direct relationships with manufacturers, they offer solutions more cost-effectively than the competition.

In the Details
Each project begins with an at-home visit to gain a firsthand sense of the environment and décor. From Old World classics to modern or contemporary styles, the extensive variety of wrought iron patterns, combined with a customized layout and choice of any hardwood species, can create a truly unique design for your home.

“We are not order takers. We take time to offer ideas based upon our years of experience,” Orodenker adds. “We evaluate the nature of surrounding rooms. Are they casual or formal, rich in detail or simple in design?”

Answers to these questions and many others enable Staircase Impressions to design a system that is proportional to the home. It is also important to discuss any future plans in terms of redecorating or renovating. The team regularly works in conjunction with interior designers and other trade contractors to create a more complete picture.

While today’s trend is the combined use of wrought iron and wood, Staircase Impressions can design with all iron or all wood. The importance lies more with what works best within the home to create stylistic balance. For on-budget projects, wood spindles are replaced with new wrought iron and railings are faux-finished with a highly durable, UV-protective finish.

“Staircases can be converted from wood to iron balusters for amazing affordable prices,” Orodenker says.

The Methodology Behind Installation
When it comes to installation, there are no sub-contractors. All work is completed by the experienced and fully insured team at Staircase Impressions, who are committed to taking great care when removing the old and installing the new. The wrought iron spindles and other materials are installed with state-of-the-art adhesives and precision equipment to ensure the greatest level of accuracy and quality.

“Knowing that safety is always key, we are conscious of these issues as they relate to your family and guests,” Orodenker says.

Further, Staircase Impressions has a proven method to ensure the least amount of disruption in your daily routine. The process is so clearly refined that, in the majority of cases, a wrought iron staircase makeover can be completed in just one day. Your home is left neat and clean, with a magnificent new staircase and railing system.

“In addition to receiving so many compliments about the new staircase, I was equally impressed with the entire process leading up to the terrific result,” says Bruce, a recent client. “The Staircase Impressions team was professional, courteous and customer friendly.”

The process does not end at installation. Staircase Impressions follows up to make certain each and every client is satisfied. With the use of only solid spindles and the finest quality powder-coated finishes available, Staircase Impressions guarantees its wrought iron products for as long as you own your home.

The Right Step
“Upgrading from wood pickets to ornamental wrought iron pickets is the most cost-effective way to add elegance and grandeur to your home's entry way,” Orodenker says. “Our process also adds untold value to your property at a fraction of the cost of complete staircase replacement. And, with our prices, the possibility of your staircase makeover can be a reality.”

Appointments can be booked now, before the holidays, to ensure your home looks its best this season.
