Unstable staircase

Location: Newmarket, NH

Problem: Mr. Hill and his wife live above his mother-in-law, so they can take care of her. He currently has two broken ankles and slipped discs in his back. He underwent surgery on one ankle in November 2016 and was waiting for it to heal before the next surgery. Mr. Hill had only one way in and out of his home and that was up a flight of nineteen stairs; that are not stable nor to code. He accessed his home from those stairs taking each step while seated.

Solution: Hammers for Veterans worked with two New Hampshire Home Builders association members to replace the stairs and railing bringing them up to code and added a landing to make it less steep of a climb. The materials for the PT decking and railings were donated by Timberline Enterprises out of Newburyport, MA. and the installation of the stairs and landing were donated by Homescapes of New England in Epping, NH. The Veteran and his wife are very pleased with the upgrade to stairs and making them safer for him to make it up and down. All the expenses were Donated by Timberline and Homescapes of New England, LLC.
