LJ Smith Stair Parts
There are several new developments in LJ Smith stair parts at Gilcrest/Jewett. We now offer two new colors in iron balusters, Satin Nickel and Oil Rubbed Copper, giving homeowners more opportunity to turn their stairways into showpieces. These colors are available in 10 different styles. Also, there are several balusters now available in hollow iron, leading to easier installation and less weight.

Speaking of ease of installation, we now have new screw down bases for use on stair treads and landing areas. Stop by one of our four showrooms to see samples of these products and colors.
