Stair Details

Stair Angle

Use a universal protractor(available at most hardware stores) to determine your stair angle.


1. Lay a straightedge across a minimum of 3 stair nosings

2. Put your universal protractor on the straightedge

3. Record the angle


-The more stair nosings you put your straightedge across the more accurate your angle will be

-If you have a long run of stairs, measure the stair angle at 2 or 3 places along your run to confirm that your angle is constant along the full set of stairs

Stair Rake

To determine the stair rake, measure the diagonal distance from the nose of the top stair to the nose of the bottom stair.
